The Cantrelle history is well-documented. The Cantrelles were involved Commandants of the Acadian Coast and a son-in-law (Judice) was Commandant of Lafourche. Many of the Judices moved to St. Mary/Iberia parishes.

My 7th great grandfather was Jacques Cantrell, the first Cantrelle to come over from Picardy, France. Seems we are related somewhere down the line. St. James Parish was named after him, as it sits on his former land. I can give you all the info I have on him. He was not an Acadian, but came directly from France to New Orleans, where he lived most of the time before St. James Parish.
