Ships to Acadia 1600's

For the search for Pierre Sirre finding ships to Acadia is paramount.

For others seeking possibilities for related family members it is also an important source.

So for that purpose I will list the ones I have found so far: bearing in mind the list is not complete: just where I am at so far:

1606: ship ??? name not known
1611: Grace de Dieu: from Dieppe with 36 people
1613: Grace de Dieu: likely also from Dieppe "with passengers"
1633: The Black Fox
1638: Le Soleil: to Cape Breton with engagee's
1640: St. Jean: 25 men 5 women
1640: St. Francois
1641: St. Pierre: crew of 30
1641: Charlotte: to Miscou
1642: St. Helie: to Port Royal
1642: the Verge
1642: St. Marie Dieppe to Cape Breton
1642: Marguerite
1642: Jupiter from Holland to Cape Breton
1643: St. Clement to St. John river
1643: Petit St. Pierre: to Cape Breton
1643: Notre Dame to St. John River
1643: Marie to St. John River
1644: Grand Cardinal
1644: Jeanne
1644: Petit St. Pierre to Cape Breton
1644: Marie
1645: Grand Cardinal
1645: Amitie
1645: Etoile to Cape Breton
1645: L'Esperance
1646: St. Joseph to Miscou
1647: St. Jehan
1647: St. Jean Baptiste
1648: Verve carrying freight
1649: St. Saveur to Perce bringing engagee's
1649: Amitie 8 passengers
1654: Chateaufort
1663: St. Clement via Boston to Acadia (Charles la Tour owner)
1667: Clerbault
1668: ship carrying Le Borgne and Du Bourg

It is truly amazing just how many ships brought people to Acadia........and you can see by the numbers that the vast majority of people certainly either did not stay or died....or we would not have just 400 people in 1671.

I hope this helps others whose ancestors came earlier than Pierre.

I will post more as I find them.........
