Acadian-Cajun Genealogy & History » French  
Exile Destination: Falmouth, England [via Virginia]
 
 
     250 Acadians arrived at Falmouth (on the coast of Cornwall) at the end of June.
     The parish of Saint Gluvias, Penryn, has a register that includes 67 Acadian burials.  The original is at the Cornwall County Record Office, though the CEA has a copy.  A guide to the records was published in Cahier 32, Societe Historique Acadienne, V. 4, No. 2, 1971 in "Le sejour des Acadiens en Angleterre et leurs traces dans les archives britanniques" by Regis S. Brun.  Also see Cahier 30 of that publication (V. 4, No. 4, 1972) for "The Acadian Exiles in England" by Dorothy Winter.
     La Rochette brought informal word of France's interest in the Acadians to Falmouth on Jan. 25, 1763.  He found 159 Acadians living in poverty.  The commissioner had stopped their financial assistance (which was the same as in Liverpool) in November.  Those not working a trade borrowed money, while widows and orphans begged.  Instead of located in a single area, these Acadians were lodged around the area in homes of citizens.  This led to a number of younger members becoming apprentices to the English.  No doubt this also led to Acadian/English relationships as well.  Needless to say, the Acadians were skeptical of his message and wondered if he was a spy.
     Eventually, they decided to go to France and  the surviving Acadians sailed to Morlaix, France on the La Fauvette, captained by Gouran.  Those boarding the ship on May 26, 1763 were:
