The English land cleared about 11,000 French and Metis Acadians from Nova Scotia
during the period of 1755 to 1763, to make room for English and Scottish settlers as those Acadians held the best land.


1760

Few Canadians realize that the French abandoned Canada to retain their sugar interests in the south. The joke at the time was that England had traded sugar for snow.

There are an estimated 200 German families settled along the St. Lawrence River.

The illegitimate (enfant du Roi) births recorded in Quebec from 1751 to 1760, were 415.

The American newspapers are inciting the public by saying the French are considered a treacherous race who should be driven out of North America by the British.

As the English flag waves over Quebec, 70,000 people, originally from France, live in the former French Colony. In New England, at the same time, we find almost 2,500,000 people originally from Europe; thirty five times more than in Canada. This speaks volumes of the French policy and attitudes towards New France: religious intolerance, suppression of liberty and indifference for the well-being of the French colony.

1762

Captain Peabody and his family left Massachusetts to become the first permanent English (speaking people) resident of New Brunswick; where Saint John now stands. The English would drive the Acadians from their lands, rename all French or Micmac place names with English names, and named the whole region Nova Scotia. Prince Edward Island would later, in 1769, be named Saint John's Island, and got its present name in 1799. The British justification for their actions is the refusal of the Roman Catholic Acadians to swear an oath of allegiance to the Anglican Church and England.

This year 1,500 French Acadians are land cleared to Massachusetts but are immediately returned.

The English land cleared about 11,000 French Acadians from Nova Scotia during the period of 1755 to 1763, to make room for English and Scottish settlers as those Acadians held the best land. The Acadians held in England are shipped to France and France reports 2,400 are on welfare. St. Milo, France received 1,560 Acadian refugees. As a result of the English Land Clearance, Acadia is renamed Nova Scotia.

The population of Canada comprised about 70,000 Europeans, 30,000 Indians and 400 black slaves

The Treaty of Paris gave Acadie to England.

France says it doesn't want New France. All they want of Canada is their fish. The English don't know what to do about the French Canadians. Benjamin Franklin of Philadelphia assures London that within 1/2 a century, French Canada will be absorbed into the English colonies in religion, language and manners. The rest will be bought out and sent back to France.

The British assumed control of Quebec, and both the quality and quantity of censuses declined. Only 3 censuses (1765, 1784, 1790) were taken of the Province of Quebec before the end of the century.

The Roman Catholic Church requested that the Canadians submit to the English King to ensure the Church would remain in control of religion as was promised by the Protestant King. They were also concerned that they might lose the enormous wealth they had accumulated in land, landlord tenant, manufacturing, fur trading and taxation (tithing). During the French regime, the Catholic Church had received over two million acres of land; a quarter of all the land the French Kings had granted. It was said at the time, that the Ecclesiastical Orders vied with one another in pleading and scheming for these generous land grants. We sometimes forget that the Roman Catholic Church was a powerful landlord in New France. Of course, this land rightfully belonged to the Native peoples who had lived on it for thousands of years. The King of France never had the right to give it away.

(I)-Benjamin Frobisher (1742-1787), with the brothers of (I)-Joseph Frobisher (1740-1810) and (I)-Thomas Frobisher, arrived in Quebec, and they entered the employ of the North West Company. Benjamin managed affairs in Montreal and London while his brothers traded in the field.

General Hospital, Montreal death Joseph De la Corne (1743-1763) age 20, slave of M. De la Corne.

General Hospital, Montreal death Angelique Ferriere (1748-1763) age 15 slave of M. Ferriere.

In the Treaty of Paris, February 10, Canada ceded to the British. Civil government proclaimed Cape Breton and Ile St. Jean (Prince Edward Island) annexed to Nova Scotia; Labrador, Anticost and Magdalen Island to Newfoundland.

In the act of the capitulation of Quebec, which was signed by General Jeffery Amhurst (1717-1797)- Commander in Chief of the troops and forces of his Majesty Britannique in America and Marquis de Vaudreuil, Governor and Lieutenant General for Roy in Canada, article XLVII reads: The Negros and Panis of the two sexes will remain, in their capacity as slaves, in the possession of the French and Canadians, to whom they belong; it will be free for them to keep them at their service in the colony or to sell them, and they will be able also to continue to make them be raised in the Roman Religion, excluding those that have been made captive.

(I)-Thomas Gage (1721-1787) is the interim Governor of America, November 17, 1763 to August 10, 1764. (I)-Thomas Gage (1721–1787), English general. He served as governor of Montreal (1760), Commander-in-Chief of the British forces in North America (1763–75) and governor of Massachusetts (1774–1775). His attempts to quell dissent in Massachusetts, New England contributed to the outbreak of the American Revolution.

A 40 ton sloop is built at Point Aux Pins, Lake Superior, north of Sault Ste. Marie.

The British commenced their policy of French subjugation or assimilation. English merchants from Boston and London enter Quebec. Thomas Walker is considered the most obnoxious of British merchants. He wants to have only British as jurors, merchants, or in any position of power. Thirty of like minded English merchants appeal to London to gain authority over the 10,000 Catholic citizens of Quebec. It is noteworthy that only 15 of these merchants even reside in Quebec. The few British want to form a Protestant only, elected assembly that will not include Catholics; as is the case in Britain. They believe this is their God given right as Protestants. This philosophy would continue into the 21st century. The belief is a strong central government, controlled by an educated political and economic elite. The opposition believed that they needed less government, and that the Government should represent the interests of the general population, not a wealthy elite.

The King refused the English merchant's demands on all accounts except their request to remove James Murry, (1721/22-1794) the Canadian Governor, for resisting the English merchant's demands. The English King proclaimed the interior, which includes all the Great Lakes, as Indian Lands, not to be encroached by settlers or to purchase same. This infuriated the English Colonies.

(II)-Joseph Broussard dit Beausoleil, b-1702 Port Royal (Acadia), died October 20, 1765 became a legend in Acadia and in Louisiana, some consider him the Louis Riel of Acadia. His homestead had been burnt and pillaged by the English so he and his family fled to the woods. Joseph was a sharpshooter and he took a heavy toll of English soldiers who were sent to capture refugees in hiding. In 1763 after being imprisoned, Joseph, Jean Basque, Simon Martin and Jean Bourg the freedom fighters were deported to Louisiana.

Hi, just happened across your blog while searching Lamoureux.

I first would like to know what 'metis' means.

what is the 'dit St-Germain' mean? is it an area, or town?

Then I must comment that I am finding it hard to follow this page. what are all the dates and roman numerals for?

I see a few names that I recognize but cannot figure how they fit into your genealogy.
