Belgium-France-Louisiana: The Ancient County of Hainaut
The ancient County of Hainaut is now part of modern day Belgium and a small piece lies in northern France.

The Mayflower of Louisiana: 1720
In 1720, over 100 colonists, many with their families, left Hainaut and migrated to Louisiana, where they became among the first families of Louisiana. These families have been likened to the Mayflower of Louisiana, according to Lambremont descendant, Jack Pastorek, as they were among the very first permanent working families to stay in Louisiana. These early colonists, who were born mostly in what is today Belgium, signed contracts in Maubeuge, (France) to come to Louisiana and work the land, according to Mr. Andre Haussy, a French Genealogist who rediscovered the original contracts about
1990 in archives in Lille, France and has published a book and several papers about these colonists.
"The first colonists spent their first year at Biloxi," according to George DeCoux, director of Parks at Gulfport, and descendant of two of the colonists, DeCuir and DeCoux. " After the first year, these colonists made their way to at least two farm concessions - one near New Orleans and the other at Pointe Coupee, both along the Mississippi River. My ancestor, Albert DeCuir (deCuire) was among these colonists who left their European home for a new life in a new world. There were 60 engages (contractees) who signed who were from in what is now France, and 68 engages who were from what is
now Belgium, and one each from Italy and Switzerland."

The 275th Anniversary Mass of the Hainaut Colonists in Louisiana
On the 275th anniversary of the arrival of the Hainaut Colonists to Louisiana, Father Leon Lyabaert, Historian and Pastor of the Catholic Church of Macon, Hainaut, Belgium, made a trip to Louisiana to celebrate Mass at the historic St. Francis Chapel in Pt. Coupee on the Mississippi River, in honor of the first Hainaut Colonists, many of whom established the first church of St. Francis in 1736. The Mass was celebrated in June, 1996, and included the 1719 ships's bell and 1696 chalice made in Belgium which has been part of St. Francis Church for as long as anyone can remember. Over 400 descendants of colonists Albert deCuire, Jacques DeCoux, Phillip Lambremont, and Jean Baptiste Pouceau attended the historic event.

ship, La Loire, were these men and their birthhplaces researched by Andre Haussy:
