After the Treaty of Utrecht, in 1713, mainland Nova Scotia and Newfoundland passed into the hands of the British while the islands of St. Jean and Cape Breton remained in French hands. The French wanted to build up a viable colony on Cape Breton to provide security for the cod fishery with Louisbourg as the center of trade. Three steps were necessary:

a. firstly, civil and military personnel had to be moved to the colony of Cape Breton,
b. secondly, the entire French fishing population of Newfoundland had to be moved to Cape Breton,
c. thirdly, they wanted to move the farmers from "old" Acadia to Cape Breton.

This third step proved to be a very difficult task for the French.

In the spring of 1713 a small group of French were sent out to take possession of Cape Breton Island which was essentially void of settlers since 1669. The Civil and Military personnel could be ordered to relocate to Cape Breton, the French fishing population of Newfoundland hardly had any choice but to move to because their financial source was France. On the other hand the Acadians proved to be very reluctant to make a move from their fertile lands along the Bay of Fundy to the rocky coast of Cape Breton. In spite of the disappointing general response to the invitation to come to Cape Breton, there was, a modest emigration from Acadia after 1713. In all, sixty-seven families of settlers of a total of nearly 500 settlers in 1714 chose to immigrate to Cape Breton between the years 1713 and 1734. Even this modest removal, however, was plagued with ill fortune. In 1726 there were about 275 Acadians at Port Toulouse who encountered serious economic difficulties resulting in over half of these returning to Acadia by 1734. In 1734 there were only 18 families, 110 persons, at Port Toulouse.

The 67 emigrant settlers can be broken down in to six groups, corresponding to the specific time or occasion of their removal to Cape Breton. Each group immigrated consecutively.


GROUP 1

The six families of the first group formed part of the founding expedition to Cape Breton in 1713. Four were soldiers, whose wives were Acadians while the fifth was the widow of a minor official of Acadia, and the sixth a Port Captain.
