  • Family
  • ca. 1773 -

C'est du Poitou d'où sont partis, avec des familles de l'Anjou, de l'Aunis et de la Saintonge, la plupart de ceux qui ont colonisé l'Acadie de 1632 à 1671. Lors du Grand Dérangement en 1755, des centaines de leurs descendants ont été déportés en France et à la suite du traité de Paris en 1763, les Acadiens qui avaient été déportés en Angleterre ont été à leur tour, rapatriés en France. Le gouvernement de Louis XV se préoccupa alors de les établir dans le royaume. En 1773 et 1774, certains de ceux-ci ont été établis au Poitou.
