Passenger List for L'Amitie


L'Amitie
     The L'Amitie, a 400 ton ship led by Captain Joseph Beltremieux, left France on August 20, 1785. After 80 days at sea, they arrived on November 8, 1785. There were 270 people in 68 families on board On the way, there were 6 deaths after sickness spread through the ship (though there were no deaths once they got to New Orleans).
     The number of families increased to 93 due to 24 additional adults, 10 births, and 17 marriages. When it came time to settle down: 17 families settled near Galveztown, 3 families went to the Attakapas, and 71 families chose to settled along Bayou Lafourche.
     By the way, the ship was also called by its Spanish name, the La Amistad, by some.

    Carlos FARDY

    Etienne GALLETIER

    Jean HAINEMENT

    Michel LEGER

    Louis MAURICE

    Vincent NEVEU

    Jean Baptiste SIMON

    Some families were on the embarkation list, but not the debarkation list. Either they were overlooked or they missed the boat. I believe if you look on the La Caroline , you might find some of them. For example the families of Louis LAMOUREUX dit ROCHEFORT, Louis GAUDET, Michel DOUCET and others evidentally missed this board and can be found aboard the La Caroline .
