Transcribed by Dave Hunter - dhunter@islandregister.com

The French Government in Louisburg, commissioned a number of censuses of the French settlements on Ile St. Jean (Prince Edward Island) during the pre-English years of the Island. Copies of these censuses are located in the Smith-Alley Collection at the P.E.I. Public Archives and Records Office, Accession 2702/670.

This census was one taken of the residents of Ile St. Jean for the year of 1734. There is also a "Rolle des Habitants" for this year, which I will put on at a later date.
