Migration from France to New France or Quebec as it was now more popularly called, continued from France until it fell in 1759. By 1675, there were 7000 French in Quebec. By the same year the Acadian presence in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island had reached 500. In the treaty of Utrecht, the Acadians were ceded by France to Britain in 1713. In 1755, 10,000 French Acadians refused to take an oath of allegiance to England and were deported. They found refuge in Louisiana. In 1793, the remaining French in these provinces came under British rule. Meanwhile, in Quebec, the French race flourished, founding in Lower Canada, one of the two great solitudes which became Canada. Many of this distinguished family name Bushee were prominent in social, cultural, religious and political affairs in France and New France. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name Bushee were John Bussie, who arrived in Barbados in 1678; Matthias Bousser Jr. who arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1733; Christian Bousser, who arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1733.
