The Acadians were a group of people who settled eastern Canada. They arrived in the area of Acadia just after the start of the 17th century. Many were from France. Port Royal (in Nova Scotia) was one of the first places settled. In 1636 the ship St. Jehan arrived with colonists. In 1671 the earliest surviving Acadian census is taken with a total population of 340 people. Next towns to be settled are Beaubassin and Grand Pre. By the early 18th Century (1701) Petitcodiac is founded. In 1749 2,576 settlers are brought to Acadia by the English. In 1755 deportation of Acadians begins, with over 6000 being exiled. Many are sent to France, many to Louisiana. In 1785 Spain provided ships to carry over 1600 Acadians from France to Louisiana
