Over 2,500 Acadians settled in the
Spanish colony of Louisiana between 1764
and 1788, Although victims of the
Deportation, none were deported directly to
Acadians made their way to Louisiana from
various locations. The first group, four families
deported to Georgia in 1755, arrived in New Orleans in
1764. Several groups arrived from Halifax (Nova Scotia)
via the Caribbean, the first one led by Joseph Broussard
dit Beausoleil. They were joined in the Caribbean by
Acadian refugees from the American colonies. Between 1766
and 1770, over 600 Acadians left Maryland for Louisiana.
The largest contingent arrived in seven boats from France in
1785. These Acadians had either been deported to France in 1758
from Ile-Saint-Jean (Prince Edward Island) and Ile-Royale (Cape
Breton Island), or to Virginia in 1755 and then to England, finally
arriving in France in 1763. Dissatisfied with conditions in France, about
1,600 of them sailed for Louisiana from the ports of Nantes, Saint-Malo
and La Rochelle.
Acadian refugees were granted land along the Bayous Teche, Lafourche and Terrebonne.
Louisiana thus became the New Acadia for a large number of Acadian exiles.French SidePlus de 2500 Acadiens s''établirent

France en 1758 de l''île-Saint-Jean (île-du-Prince-Édouard) et de
1''île-Royale (ile du Cap-Breton), soit en Virginie en 1755 et puis
en Angleterre pour aboutir en France en 1763. Mécontents des
conditions en France, plus de 1600 exilés partirent de Nantes, de
Saint-Malo et de la Rochelle pour la Louisiane.
