Little Caillou

Early Landowners on Little Caillou, by Audrey Westerman

     All of the land on Bayou Little Caillou was considered public land of the U.S. Congress until the Cash Sales Act of 1820. By the 1830's settlers and speculators began buying this land at $1.20 an acre. Most of the patents on their claims were dated in the 1840's, but a few were in the late 1830's. Patent information of land on Bayou Little Caillou was taken from U.S. Land Office and Louisiana State Land Office records. Some names were misspelled to a great degree. While the land grants of Bayou Terrebonne included both sides of the bayou, the Sections purchased on Little Caillou were only for one side, either the right descending or left descending side. Some landmarks are listed for informational purposes, being taken from modern maps. Every 16th Section in each township was set aside for "school land" and was not sold. This information is for genealogical purposes only, and not for legal ownership claims of the land. In many cases, the date of signature is NOT the date of purchase, as proven in other records.

     Bayou Little Caillou is first mentioned in records on 5 August 1833 when the Terrebonne Parish Police Jury minutes revealed "The residents of the 4th Ward from the head of Little Caillou to the line between the 4th and 5th Wards are exempt from the restriction of 1822 where it is forbidden to put cattle of whatever kind on the western side of Bayou Terrebonne. After the month of January next, the residents may put whatever cattle they please provided they make a fence between Bayou Terrebonne and Petit Caillou on the lower line between the 4th and 5th Wards. The cattle may not go beyond this line." (TLL Vol. 17 No. 2 p. 133)

     At the Police Jury meeting of 5 Sept. 1836 it was written in the minutes, "Due to the increased population on Petit Caillou and Bayou Black it was recommended that the wards be divided into new wards so that each area will elect a representative. Petit Caillou has about 50 or 60 families. A road on Petit Caillou will be built from the plantation of Joseph TOUPS to the public bridge at the junction of Grand Caillou (sic: Bayou Terrebonne intended?; Grand Caillou does not meet Bayou Little Caillou). The road will be on the right bank from the plantation of J. TOUPS to the plantation on Bayou Terrebonne of T(homas) SHIELDS." (TLL Vol. 17 No. 2, pgs. 135, 136.)

     On 20 Aug. 1837 the Police Jury appointed Laurent PELLEGRIN as Road Inspector of "the road to be built from the source of Petit Caillou to the lower settlement at the plantation of John CLARK". (TLL Vol. 17 No. 2, pg. 136)

     The minutes of the Police Jury meeting of 4 June 1838 recorded "A commission of C. DARCY, Joseph DARCE, H. M. BELLANGER, Louison PITRE, Louis BERGERON, and Jacques LABIT will report on laying out a road on Little Caillou." (ibid, p. 138)

RBLC (Right bank of Little Caillou) and LBLC (Left Bank of Little Caillou) are used to indicate on which side of the bayou these sections are located.
