         On the first page of the census, (folio 17), are to be found a lot
    of figures and additions.  What follows is noteworthy:
    
    
    
    Francois Gaulterot
    
    Bastien Brun, 1 boy/1y, 2 cattle, 1 gun
    
    10 barrels   La Ramee
    
    25 cattle
    
    6 acres   Les Boizins   8 Strangers
    
    La Verdure 2   113 over 15 years
    
    90 men - 69 guns - 55 families -149 boys and 119 girls Marriageable -
    610 (?) horned cattle - 237 acres - 200 sheep - 500 pigs.
    
         We have already met Francois Gautreau in folio 19v and Sebastien
    Brun in folio 20.  The latter is said here to have a son one year old
    and 2 cattle; in folio 20 he is given also a daughter, 2 years old, and
    8 cattle.
    
         With regard to La Ramee, he was Charles Melanson, the son of Pierre
    Laverdure, senior, and of Priscilla;  he had married around 1663 Marie
    Dugas, daughter of Abraham Dugas.  He had a brother, Pierre, who had
    married around the same time Marie Mius d'Entremont, daughter of
    Philippe Mius d'Entremont and of Madeleine Helie.  He is often mentioned
    as La Verdure, after his father.  Although there were a certain number
    of Acadians to whom this name was given, the La Verdure of our census
    most probably applies to him.  It is strange that these two prominent
    families of Port Royal are not recorded elsewhere in the census.
    
         We do not know what the words Les Voizins, but probably for Les
    Voisins, (The neighbors), stand for.
