This book is a reprint of a 1906 Canadian Archives transcription of the original inspection and census of Isle Royale in 1752 by Sieur De La Roque.

In addition to including a listing of the people, this report includes much personal about the settlers/residents of Cape Breton in 1752, plus detailed descriptions of the topography and condition of places thoughout the island.

An example of a census entry for one family:
    Nicolas Beriot, coaster, native of la Cadie, aged 49 years. Married to Ursul le Gotre, native of des Mines, diocese of Quebec, aged 34 years. They have taken refuge in the island for two years.
    They have three sons and three daughters:
      Olive, aged 12 years;
      Pierre, aged 10 years;
      Joseph, aged 7 years;
      Marie, aged 16 years;
      Joseph, aged 14 years;
      Madeleine, aged 4: years.
    One cow, three geese, and five fowls.
    The land they occupy was granted them in 1749 by M. Duhaget, then Commandant at Port Toulouse. They have made a small clearing for a garden, and uncultivated land for a meadow. They have been granted rations for two years.
Very few decendants of early settlers in Canada are fortunate enough to have such a detailed census and account of local conditions available to them for the mid-seventeen hundreds. If you are researching early families in Cape Breton, this resource is priceless!
