|One of the ships (heading for New York) carrying
Acadian exiles was blown off course and landed on Antigua. The Acadians
were sent to St. Kitts, where they stayed from January 25, 1756 to April
1, 1756. They were then sent to the Dutch colony of St. Eustache, where
they continued to live in poverty. When Governor Windt asked the French
colony of Martinique for help, it resulted in 28 Acadians moving to that
island. Although the Acadians requested transport to Quebec or Cape Breton
Island, it seems as though they were forced to remain on the island.
