Service History


DateEventSource
1709

In 1709, he moved north again to cross off Port-Royal, no doubt encouraged by Subercase , Gouverneur of Acadia. In a single ten-day sortie he sank 4 English vessels and brought back 9 prizes .

When it became evident that Port-Royal would not be attacked in 1709, Morpain dropped off some of his men there and returned to Saint-Domingue. There he had to face the wrath of his boss, Choiseul, who sharply disapproved of the use of resources belonging to Saint-Domingue for the benefit of Port-Royal.
