Allibamonts (or Alibamons), as they were called by their fellow colonists, came to Louisiana from present-day Alabama at the end of the French period. Most had served as French soldiers at either Mobile or along the Alabama River when France controlled the region. At the end of the Seven Years' War, the Treaty of Paris of February 1763 awarded all of French Louisiana east of the Île of Orleans to the victorious British. This included some of present-day eastern Louisiana and all of Mississippi and Alabama. A British occupation force arrived at Mobile in late October 1763. Most of the French families in the region refused to live under British rule. They migrated to New Orleans in late 1763 or early 1764 and were among the first permanent settlers of the prairie districts west of the Atchafalaya Basin. - Acadians In Gray
