Noël Amyot or Amiot, born at Triveron, Diocese of St.-Malo, France, in c1712, came to Île Royale as a fisherman in c1728.  He married Marguerite, daughter of Pierre Bois and Marie-Catherine Coste of Port-Toulouse probably in the early 1740s.  Marguerite gave him at least four children:  Marguerite, born in c1744; Jean in c1748; Madeleine in c1750; and Pierre in c1751.  They settled at L’Ardois, down the coast from Louisbourg, where a French official counted them in February 1752.  No member of this family emigrated to Louisiana.35

At L’Ardoise, De La Roque found nine more Acadian families, all related to Sr. François Coste, native of Marseille and long-time resident of the island who once had worked as a carpenter at Port-Royal in “la Cadie.”  He had come to Port-Toulouse in c1717, where he excelled as a coastal pilot.

Marie-Catherine Coste, age 57, “native of Port Royal” and François’s daughter, lived with her second husband Pierre Boy, or Bois, age 70, a fisherman, “native of St.-Jean des Champs, Diocese of Coutances,

Noël Amiot, age 40, fisherman, “native of Quiberon, diocese of St. Malo,” lived with wife Marguerite Bois, age 30, “native of Port Toulouse” and another of Pierre’s daughter.  With Noël and Marguerite were four children:  Marguerite, age 8; Jean, age 4; Madeleine, age 2; and an unnamed son, probably Pierre, age 1.  De La Roque reported that Noël had been “in the Colony since 1728” and that he owned “Seven head of cattle, one pig, five fowls, one boat, and a garden.”
