MEZANEAU FAMILY

CRASWELL MIZANSEAU- In 1793 an expedition was fitted out at Halifax for the purpose of capturing St.Pierre Island. The expedition was successful. Among prisoners brought to Halifax were Governor of the Island and his aide-de-camp or Private Secretary. Govenor Dansville and his A.D.C, Crawswall Mizanseau arrived at Halifax June 20,1793. They, along with the other French officers, were allowed to give their parole. Govenor Dansville and his secretary lived for a long time on the old Preston Road with a Miss Floyer at Brook House.

M.Mizanseau married a Miss Naugle from Eastern Passage and settled . They had several children . His sons William and Henry continued to live in Eastern Passage, but M.Mizanseau went to France on business and never returned to Eastern Passage. He was an educated, refined and intelligent man. His sons inheirited his refinement.The Wells of Eastern Passage and Mr. Fred Wells of Cow Bay, are descendants of Craswall Mizanseau.

In the R.C. cemetery at Eastern Passage is a monument with the following inscription: " In memory of Maria L. Mizanseau, widow, who died in a good old age Dec.4th,1853, also her son William, who died January 9,1872, aged 64 years." From the Acadian Recorder I find that on May 3,1832, Francis De Mizanseau, son of M. Mizanseau, who was brought to Halifax in 1793 as a prisoner of war, had died and that the funeral was to take place at Eastern Passage.
