Ambroise Naquin, age 34, son of Jacques, Ambroise's wife Élisabeth Bourg, age 33, and five of their children--Élisabeth, age 7, Jean-Baptiste, age 5, Pierre, age 4, and Marguerite, age 2--made the crossing on the British transport Supply, which left the Gut of Canso in late November 1758 and finally reached St.-Malo in early March 1759. Ambroise, Élisabeth, and their two older children survived the voyage, but the two younger children died at sea; Élisabeth was pregnant when she left Acadia; daughter Madeleine was born probably at St.-Malo in April 1759, less than a month after the family reached France, but the newborn died in May, only a few weeks old.
