"Why select the years '1636 to 1754'
This could be termed the true Acadian period. The first permanent settlers of note began
landing in Acadia in the 1630's. These French settlers inhabited the land called Acadia
until 1755-1763, at which time they were expelled by the British. It is very difficult to
get further back than these first settlers, though it can be done for a few cases."
