I think everyone in all our efforts have missed some research opportunities.
There hasn’t been a lot of effort to trace back the old Acadian presence in Sackville / Pre de Richard
and Middle Sackville / Pre des Bourg.
A plaque has been set up at Tintamarre / Upper Sackville to their credit
But no information on the other two settlements.
From the records, we know there was a small settlement somewhere in what is now Sackville.
Franquet's Map - seems to indicate that there were 9 households near what is now Sackville (attached)
The 1751 inhabitants (including refugees who had left Beaubassin or other former settlements) included nine families in Sackville:
Jean-Baptiste CORMIER, his wife, 3 boys, 4 girls.
Antoine LANDRY, his wife, 3 boys, 2 girls. (Veskak)
Joseph RICHARD, his wife, 4 boys, 2 girls. (Nanpan)
Martin RICHARD, widower, 2 boys, 1 girl
Jean RICHARD, his wife, 1 boy, 1 girl
Pierre RICHARD, his wife, 2 boys, 2 girls
Pierre BOURGEOIS, his wife, 2 boys, 2 girls
Joseph RICHARD, his wife, 2 boys, 2 girls
Francois BERNARD, his wife, 1 boy
Francois BOURG, his wife, 7 boys, 3 girls
So there seems there were nine families with about 60 people. Question is... where?
When I was very small - perhaps in the late 1950s - I remember my older sisters playing in some old ruins near the old Enterprise Foundry - - I have pointed at their location on the attached aerials and map.
Like most Acadian villages - the remains were on the higher sloped ground near a flat field and a tidal river. I have never heard if this stretch of the Tantramarre River was dyked with aboiteaux or not - but the aerials certainly suggest this.
While a full archeological dig probably isn't worthwhile, any foundations (although the stones were probably taken) or some evidence of structures might be found by a Geophysical scan.
