In 1811, parts of Attakapas Parish were taken out to create St. Martin and St. Mary parishes. In 1824, 1844 and again in 1868, St. Martin Parish was divided, resulting in the creation of other parishes. St. Martin was largely colonized in the 1700s by people from France and Acadia (south eastern Canada and northeastern Maine), resulting in a large concentration of French-speaking population today.  [jet]   [ph:L]
