Acadian-Cajun Genealogy & History » French  
Exile Destination: Southampton, England [via Virginia]
     The 340 Acadians that arrived at Southampton were put into barracks on the wharves.
     La Rochette also visited Southampton on Jan. 18, 1763.  These Acadians were more exposed to the English, as Southampton was a summer retreat for the English nobility.  They (such as General Mordant and the Duke of York) would try to get the Acadians to renounce France.  They were used to people trying to trick them, so they refused to even listen to La Rochette.  Their numbers had gone from 340 when they left Virginia to 219.  Though all he was able to get was a bit of their history, he told them that he was convinced of their loyalty to France and understood their skepticism.  When he left, the Acadians got permission from their commissioner to send to delegates to talk to Nivernois.  
     When the arrangements for resettlement finally materialized,  the surviving Acadians sailed on the king's corvette L'Ambition on May 16, 1763 to St. Malo, France.  They were:

     There is also another list with the same date in LaRochette's papers.  It states that Edward Noble made out the list of 219 Acadians according to the orders of the Commissioner of the Sick and Wounded.  The list doesn't seem to be divided by families.
Pierre Terriot 24
     There's also a list of prisoners coming from the Bristol prison to Southampton (same date) by Bruneau de LaSalle.  They were to board the L'Ambition.  These don't appear to be Acadian.  Their origin is also given.

     There's another list of prisoners that were taken from Bristol to Southampton to board the frigate La Dorothee.  It's dated May 26, 1763.  Again, it generally doesn't appear to be Acadians.
