1686 Map of Acadia

This map of Acadia was a portion of a larger map issued in 1686 by Jacques de Meulles, Intendant of New France, and drawn by Jean-Baptiste-Louis-Franquelin, King's hydrographer.

Some of the less important names have been omitted. The original is in the Service Hydrographique de la Marine, Paris.

A copy is in the Public Archives, Ottawa.

In looking at this map, it is easy to see how the Acadians who had overtaken the Pembroke while being deported to South Carolina were able to make their way from the Bay of Fundy [Baie Francoise] up to the Riviere St-Jean [St. John River].
