The Penicault Narrative (translated as Fleur de Lys and Calumet) lists seven ships arriving from France in early 1720: La Gironde, L'Elephant, La Loire, La Seine, Le Dromadaire, Le Traversier and La Venus, all arriving at Isle-aux-Vaisseaux. The author estimates that more than 4,000 new colonists arrived on these ships, and that at least 60 of them were female prisoners from the Hopital-General (house of detention & correction) of Paris.
In a footnote to this passage, Richebourg McWilliams says that "Statistics of the Company of the Indies and police records show that of the 1,215 women put aboard ships for Louisiana between October, 1717, and May, 1721, more than half were prostitutes." [fn, page 240]
Most of them were absorbed by the many large concessions that were established throughout the Colony during the early 1720's. Reminds me of Botany Bay & Australia.
