Publications by Winston De Ville of Louisiana



A Census of the Indian and French Inhabitants of Port Royal, Cap Sable, La Hêve, Les Mines, Mousecoudabouet, Cap Breton, Chiquenietou, Pintagouet, Canibeky, Port Rasoirs and the St. John River; translated and edited by Winston De Ville. Enumerated are families of Babin, Bertrand, Boutin, Gaudet, Guidry, Melançon, Petit/Petitpas, Picou, Pitre, Robert, St. Aubin, Thibodeau(x), Vigé and Vincent among other well-known names of Acadia.

An important, but generally overlooked aspect of Acadian genealogy is marriage between European settlers and Indians. Throughout the colonial period, there are examples of Acadians taking brides from the Abenaki and MicMac nations.

A new and rich field for genealogists is tracing Acadian ancestry into medieval times. The ground-breaking introductions addresses Acadian descendants from seventeenth-century European aristocracy even from Emperor Charlemagne. Notes provide sources for additional research on the intriguing subject.

An Ecclesiastical Census of Port Royal, Les Mines, Rivières des Gaspards, Rivière de Pigiguit, Rivière des Habitants, Rivière des Canards, Rivière de la Vielle Habitation, Beaulieu, Cobeguit and Beaubassin.

Winston's version of the 1714 Acadian census comes from both an expected source and an unusual source; the original and a copy of the original. This is due to what researchers had to use prior to microfilm and photocopy machines.

The 1714 census itself gives a key to understanding the rift that grew steadily between the Acadians and their British 'masters', enabled by the 1713 Treaty of Utrecht. A French Recollect, Père Felix Pain and not the British government undertook this census. Father Pain did so at the request of the governor of Ile Royale and when he wrote to the governor in 1713, he explained that one-fourth of the Acadian population was elderly, and that moving large families into a new area devoid of housing and cleared fields, was tantamount to mass suicide!
