Also see . . .  Daniel d'Auger de Subercase - Wikipedia. Subercase had fewer than 300 men to set against them (the British Forces). After a few days of defense, Subercase surrendered the partially ruined and under provisioned Port-Royal to the British, expressing to the English commander his hope of returning to pay him a visit the following spring. Subercase, accused of negligence by some officers and reprimanded by New France governor Vaudreuil, was summoned before a court martial at Rochefort, but rapidly acquitted.
