Migration of the Cournaut family to the New World and Oceana

Migration from France to New France or Quebec as it was now more popularly called, continued from France until the colony fell to the English 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 Cournaut were prominent in social, cultural, religious and political affairs in France and New France. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name Cournaut were Elizabeth Cournoyer, an Acadian Exile on record in Cayenne, French Guiana in 1764; Augustin Cournoyer, who was on record in Iowa in 1837; Jean Bt. Cournoyer, who was naturalized in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan in 1837.
