PREFACE

Subject: Research Request from Bruce Fry

Please find a review of both the written/cartographic documentationand Structural Design Team Minutes which, in part, were used in 1971 to determine the construction type of the stables outbuilding. The archaeological report was not examined, and conclusions therein may or may not agree with archaeological statements found in the reproduced sources below.

Gratis and I hope this helps.

NARRATIVE

H.P. Thibault in his report, L'Ilot 17 (September 1972) sometimes relied on sources other

than 18th-century written/cartographic documentation to reach a seemingly definitive conclusion. For example, although in history the De la Perelle residence was modestly described but twice (in 1756 ["de bois"] and in 1768) as "wooden"; the storehouse but once (in 1768) as "wooden"; and the interpreted stable but never of any possible building type, yet in the text of his report, Thibault asserted the following:

Il [maison - page 116] s'agit d'une maison de charpente ...

Il [storehouse - page 120] s'agit encore une fois d'une construction de charpente ...

Le plus imposant [outbuilding - stables - page 123] est érigé entre 1725 et 1730, à 84 pieds de la rue Royale. Il s'agit d'un édifice de 12 pieds de largeur le long du terrain A et de 24 pieds de longueur .... Il a probablement été utilisé comme écurie, car Jean-François Eurry de La Perelle est un des rares officiers de Louisbourg à avoir eu un cheval ...

Only when one examines his footnotes 190 and 198 do we understand the basis for these added assertions for the house and storehouse:

Communication de Steven Archibald; il est aussi désigné comme construction de bois en 1756 et en 1768: Prévost à Machault. Louisbourg, 1 octobre 1756. A.N., Col., C 11 B, vol. 36, f. 146v; A.F.L., M.C., 768-1 et le document annexé: Mich Franklin. "The State of the Town of Louisbourg on the 10th of August 1768". Halifax, 26 septembre 1768. P.R.O., C.O. 217, vol. 25 (Nova Scotia) A 83, f. 140v.

Here Steven Archibald was the archaeologist for the site (S. Archibald, Excavations in Block

17, Louisbourg 1969-70, Unpublished Report A E 48 (Fortress of Louisbourg, Not Dated).

Although I do not have a copy of the archaeological report in hand, it is quite clear from the

Structural Design Team Minutes (September 28, 1971 - Source: B 219, 210-215) that what was to be constructed were as follows:

(A) Residence: Basic design to be of period, half timber (à colombage) and masonry construction (3 sides half timber (à colombage) and 1 side masonry. (September 2, 1971 (Source: B 219 181 - 192)

(B) Storehouse: Basic usage to be of period half timber (à colombage) construction. (September 2, 1971 (Source: B 219 181 - 192)

(C) Outbuilding [Stable]: Basic usage to be of period half timber (à colombage) construction. (September 2, 1971 (Source: B 219 181 - 192)

Obviously, what had convinced the Structural Design Team in general - and the Historian Thibault in particular - to agree that the residence and storehouse were of 1/2 timber construction was the arguable evidence which the Archaeologist Archibald had unearthed. Less clear was why the Structural Design Team also thought that the outbuilding [stable] was also of half-timber construction:

(A) Residence

September 28, 1971 (B 219, 210-215)

(B) The east wall, which is a masonry one, should be finished on the interior with crepi, rough plaster, fine plaster, then finally painted light blue. [BASIS: "as found" evidence, e.g., collapsed wall sections].

(C) The south, north and west walls are to be of wood frame construction, with approximately 12 pouces x 12 pouces (12 3/4" x 12 3/4") corner posts and 5 pouces x 5 pouces (5 1/4" x 5 1/4") intermediate posts. The exterior and interior of these walls are to be faced with planking. Details of planking to be determined during preliminary stages. The sills should be located at approximately centre of footings. [BASIS: "As found" post pockets and wood sill remnants. Also found were approximately 4000 nails which the Design Team concluded to have been used with the planking. Likewise, a lack of stone rubble in this area prompted the recommendation for use of planking].

November 1, 1971 (B 219, 228-238)

(A) Material - concrete and rubblestone. [BASIS: Modern techniques to be used below grade. Rubblestone to be used above grade as dictated by the "as found" evidence].

(B) Top of Wall Elevation - modern foundation wall to be built to an elevation of approximately 13.50' at the front or north wall, and approximately 14.50' at the rear or south wall. The side or east and west walls could be stepped to help maintain an elevation approximately 1' 0" below grade. Elevation for top of rubblestone portion of walls to be determined during preliminary design.

(B) Storehouse

September 28, 1971 (B 219, 210-215)

... EXTERIOR SILL PLATE: RECOMMENDATIONS: Sill plate to be laid close to the exterior edge of footing and should be approximately 6 pouces x 7 pouces (6 3/8" x 7 3/8") in size. Also, sections of the sill will be at different elevations because of a variance in elevations for the footings, i.e., southeast corner of east wall. [BASIS: "As found" evidence as interpreted by the site archaeologist].

... EXTERIOR WALL CONSTRUCTION: RECOMMENDATIONS; (A) Should be constructed using approximately 12 pouces x 12 pouces (12 3/4" x 12 3/4") corner posts and approximately 6 pouces x 6 pouces (6 3/8" x 6 3/8") intermediate posts. Exterior only, to be faced with planking. Spacing of intermediate posts, size and finish of planking, type of jointing, etc. to be resolved during preparation of preliminary drawings and presented to Design team for discussion and approval. It was also noted that the top of the footing for the front (north) wall was above the pavé level and the building should be built incorporating this feature. [BASIS: "As found" evidence as interpreted by the archaeologist. Use of planked walls based on lack of rubblestone plus the finding of approximately 3600 nails within the confines of this particular building. Also this type of construction was common to the period and area].

November 1, 1971 (B 219, 228-238)

(A) Material - concrete and rubblestone [BASIS: Modern techniques to be used below grade. Rubblestone to be used above grade as per "as found" evidence] ...

(B) Top of wall elevation - to be determined ....

(A) Supporting walls to be 12 pouces x 12 pouces (12 3/4" x 12 3/4"), posts at the corners, 6 pouces x 6 pouces (6 3/8" x 6 3/8") intermediate posts. [BASIS: Reference, see minutes, September 28, 1971, Item (09)] ...

(C) Outbuildings (Stables)

September 28, 1971 (Source: B 219 210 - 215)

ITEM (17): STABLE: FOOTINGS: DISCUSSION: Archaeological findings consisted of a footing trench only. However, the trench was extremely definable and clean-cut, indicating the possibility that beams (wood) were once embedded there, but no remnants were found to validate their existence. [BASIS: "As found" evidence as interpreted by site archaeologist].

ITEM (18): STABLE: WALLS: RECOMMENDATIONS; Little is known about the structure itself, but the Design Team recommended a wooden type structure with sills resting on the ground, partially embedded into the earth, and vertical posts with exterior planking. Details to be determined. [BASIS: Interpretation of Item 17].

(a) RECAP OF DE LA PERELLE OUTBUILDING (BLOCK 17)

S. Myers introduced a brief discussion on De La Perelle Outbuilding (Stables), to prepare Design Team members for preliminary design at next Design Team meeting.

Existing Stable which is to be completely replaced, is a charpente frame out-building with piquet infill. Some items shown on reconstruction drawings are incomplete, such as glazed windows; question re basis of boarded-up chicken entrance; some joinery details to be revised. No wind bracing, building unstable; addition of bracing required. S. Myers noted that, since total replacement is required, the location and type of doors, windows/shutters, partitions, stalls, etc. is flexible. Historical Resources to clarify 18th century use of building being interpreted (mainly stable? some poultry? other animals? fodder? etc.).

S. Myers to discuss present use of building with Operations. Design Team members to be prepared to discuss preliminary Recap design at next meeting.

April 07, 1994 (Source: B 246 42 - 49)

(e) RECAP OF DE LA PERELLE OUT- BUILDING (BLOCK 17)

S. Myers gave brief review of historical background of this building and of Design Team decisions made in 1973-74. De La Perelle House was built in 1725 and this outbuilding sometime between 1725 and 1730. (BASIS: Historical Report: Block 17, Louisbourg (1713-1768), H. Paul Thibault, 1972; and Plans 725-3, 730-2, 731-1.) The outbuilding is shown, as a gable-roofed building, with a yard on one side and gardens on the other. Its size and location were confirmed by a trench found during archaeological excavations. (BASIS: Block 17 As found Dwgs. HAFLR69/P21, Dwgs. No.'s 9, 10 & 13; and A Summary of the Archaeology of the Town Site of Louisbourg 1959-79, Donald A. Harris, 1982.)

In 1745 or 1746, the de La Perelle outbuilding was replaced by more extensive outbuildings constructed by the New Englanders. (BASIS: Plan 746-8a) S. Myers noted that the current building is to be completely replaced, giving some freedom re openings, details, etc. She also noted that it is important to clarify the historic building use being interpreted: horse stable and harness/feed shed, or multi-purpose barn accommodating other animals. E. Krause recommended that we continue interpreting as a horse stable and harness/feed shed, to provide interpretation of horse ownership as a status symbol. It was agreed to eliminate the blocked-in chicken door, since de La Perelle owned a horse by 1719 and it was common for horses to be stabled in their own building. Poultry and other animals could have been kept in smaller outbuildings in the yard. (BASIS: La Nouvelle Maison Rustique, 1755, Vol. I, pp. 12-14.)

Preliminary proposals for Recap design were reviewed. Agreed that some incomplete details indicated on previous drawings (e.g. window sash, loft ladder) should be implemented, in order to produce a completed building that could be opened to visitors. Hardware to be installed, subject to availability of resources. S. Myers reviewed the changes proposed from the existing charpente building: - relocation of some door and window openings, installation of glazed window sash;

April 13, 1994 (Source: B 246 50 - 54)

ITEM (01): RECAP OF DE LA PERELLE STABLE (BLOCK 17)

A special purpose meeting was convened to discuss the construction type of the de La Perelle Stable. Archaeological information (archaeological report, lot records and description of findings) reviewed by A. Crépeau; indicates the current charpente-frame building on a dry-laid masonry foundation is not consistent with archaeological data available for this property (see attached information by S. Myers and A. Crépeau). Base elevations indicate that the as-found trench is consistently lower on the north side of the building than on the south side; if this had been a wooden building on a sill, we would expect to find a relatively level bottom to the trench. A. Crépeau summarized the evidence against interpretation of this as- found trench as reflecting a charpente-frame building, as follows:

(i) sloping/varying bottom of trench does not suggest a sill-in-ground;

(ii) sills were not typically placed in the ground all around a building;

(iii) simple stone foundations were placed on the ground, not this deeply into it;

(iv) no pattern of stones was found in the trench, to reflect a stone foundation;

(v) the trench would be wider, for a stone foundation;

(vi) there is no indication at Louisbourg of a pattern of robbing stones for re-use (stones were plentiful).

A. Crépeau noted that the as-found elevations can be taken as accurately reflecting the base of the trench. The archaeological evidence is therefore more consistent with a piquet building, without a sill and with in-ground piquets. It suggests placed (flat-bottomed) rather than driven (pointed) piquets, but could also reflect a driven piquet building that had been extensively repaired. Flat-bottomed piquets could be placed individually, or in groups or panels. A. Crépeau noted that she had no quibble with the existing charpente building on dry-laid stone foundation, as an example of its construction type, but that that construction type does not reflect the archaeological evidence for this site. She recommended reconstruction of a piquet in-ground building, with flat-bottomed piquets.(BASIS: Interpretation of "As Found" evidence.) This recommendation will require a completely new design.

S. Myers noted the importance of reflecting our current knowledge of piquet construction. It is also important to reflect a viable assembly process for a piquet building, and to reflect repair-ability. There will be a requirement for research time from Historical Resources, for both Archives/History and Archaeology, as well as a requirement to work closely with the Architect to discuss piquet information to date. Since this will require time and will affect the implementation schedule, T. Meagher suggested that time commitment and target dates are required. To this end, A. Crépeau, E. Krause and S. Myers will meet on Friday afternoon to discuss further. T. Meagher also requested a preliminary look at the roof structure as early as possible, as this will affect implementation.

Design Team members agreed to the recommendation that this building be reconstructed as a piquet structure. "Model building" approach suggested for this structure by W. O'Shea, to have a building with construction technology, materials and details as historically-accurate as possible (e.g. wrought iron hardware) and without modern intrusions, even if concealed (e.g. no tar paper in roof).

June 02, 1994 (Source: B 246 84 - 95)

(d) RECAP OF DE LA PERELLE OUTBUILDING (BLOCK 17)

Tentative schedule prepared by S. Myers, but affected by recent discussions re Beauséjour Residence and other projects. Advised by A. Crépeau that D. Ross is working full-time on the depth-of-trench information, and is compiling a dossier of piquet-related field notes from archaeological excavations, which will expedite further research. E. Krause has been reviewing newly-acquired 18th-century French documents from Mississippi River Valley, which give useful detail (some references to depths of trenches for posts in ground, ground floor heights, cornerposts longer than other posts, hewn window and door posts, etc.) Continuing to review - will provide printed copy.

June 09, 1994 (Source: B 246 96 - 101)

(iii) DE LA PERELLE STABLE, BLOCK 17:

Discussion deferred, pending receipt of depth of trench information from D. Ross.

June 10, 1994 (Source: B 246 102 - 108)

(i) DE LA PERELLE STABLE, BLOCK 17:

D. Ross still researching depth of piquet trenches, research too preliminary to provide figures. He provided some preliminary information, however, from his 1991 research (see "Piquet Metric Analysis" attached).

S. Myers noted that the 10 cm. depth of trench at the Dugas addition should be used with caution.

It was agreed to order piquets on the basis of the deepest trench noted (40 cm., or l5-3/4"), to allow flexibility while awaiting completion of research. It was also agreed: - to allow some extra height (10"+) for accommodating sloping site (see attached Preliminary Section); - to allow for 8'- 0" clear height below ceiling joists, as in existing building; - to assume simple connection to the top plate, with no knee wall; - to assume that piquets will not extend unbroken into the gable ends; (BASIS: Views 1731-3 and others show line at base of gable.) Piquets therefore to be ordered 10'- 6"+ long, in range of diameters to reflect D. Ross' information (11 - 15 cm., or 4+" - 6").

June 16, 1994 (Source: B 246 109 - 117)

(d) RECAP OF DE LA PERELLE OUTBUILDING (BLOCK 17)

Scheduling meeting arranged for 4 PM today in the Engineering and Works Office. D. Ross continuing work on depth-of-trench information; summary on piquet depth should be completed by the end of this week. A. Crépeau noted that D. Ross' 1991 list of piquet trench depths gives depth to modern/excavation grade, not to period grade.

June 30, 1994 (Source: B 246 118 - 127)

(d) RECAP OF DE LA PERELLE OUTBUILDING (BLOCK 17)

A. Crépeau advised research notes for depth-of-trench information will be available soon. T. Meagher advised that, because of the late start to research and design, recapitalization of this building will not be carried out this fiscal year.

July 08, 1994 (Source: B 246 128 - 136)

(d) RECAP OF DE LA PERELLE OUTBUILDING (BLOCK 17)

S. Myers has scheduled preliminary design work for this fall. D. Ross is packaging piquet info.; will be ready for fall. A. Crépeau advised three recently discovered as-found in-ground piquets (not inventoried) from one of the Grandchamp buildings have been sent for species identification.

(B) Recap of de La Perelle Stable (Block 17)

Piquet requirements developed last year for this building, but piquets not ordered: fir piquets, 10'-6"+long, 4¼" - 6" diameters. S. Myers recommended additional length for exterior wall piquets (piquets 12'-0"+ long), to allow for possibility of knee wall in attic, since all vertical post buildings she saw in Mississippi River Valley last fall had knee walls. Design Team agreed. Some slightly larger piquets may be required, for square-hewn door and window jambs.

S. Myers noted complete sillplate on the north side needs to be replaced. T. Meagher/L. Wadden will proceed with temporary repair in spring - drawings not required. It was noted that the Recap design of this structure will be needed soon; has been delayed by lack of availability by Archaeology for input on piquet building design.

January 10, 2001 (Source: B 380 01 10 2001 CI)

ITEM (07) DE LA PERELLE STABLE (LOT "B", BLOCK 17): INTERIM STABILIZATION

Building requires replacement within next 3 years at most; if we are to reconstruct it as piquet-in-ground building to reflect what we know of piquet construction at Louisbourg, archaeological input to the design is required.

Archaeology has compiled a binder of archaeological data from excavation of piquet buildings at Louisbourg (field notes, etc.), but this information requires review, interpretation, synthesis, etc. W. O'Shea suggested archaeological report on piquet construction; S. Myers noted that she would require answers to specific questions. W. O'Shea to investigate further.
