Comte de Paris 180
From April to June 2021.
Akaroa Museum remembers the French and German settlers who arrived in Akaroa on the Nanto-Bordelaise chartered ship, Comte de Paris, in 1840.
The exhibition included photographs and stories of some of the 58 Comte de Paris settlers, pictures of the houses they lived in and details of their land holdings.
Descendants of the de Malmanche, Lelievre, Libeau and Breitmeyer families contributed their thoughts on what it means to be part of those families.
