The Acadians came from Arcadia an ancient region of what is now the country of Greece and they were not removed by the British.Acadians can also refer to french colonists who settled in Canada maritime provinces. Acadia was a distinctly separate colony of New France (and separate from Quebec). When the French were at war with the British the British took over Acadia to prevent the French colonists supporting France. When the people would not take an oath supporting the British, the British administration deported approximately 11,500 Acadians from the maritime region to prevent them aiding the French.

The indigenous Aborigines were the first to settle in Australia, but they did not "settle Australia" in the sense of building cities and actively seeking to trade with other nations.The first people to officially settle Australia were convicts sent from Britain, and the officers sent to oversee the new colony. Governor Arthur Phillip was the first Governor of New South Wales (Australia).Having said that, however, there is some evidence that the first unofficial European settlers were survivors of Dutch shipwrecks off the western coast of the continent, a region renowned for shipwrecks in the 1600s - again, they settled in Australia but did not settle Australia.
