The Creedmoor Plantation was another sugar growing plantation on Bayou Terre-aux-Boeufs. It was assembled by Jean Joseph Coiron in the 1810s from the land grants that had been made to the immigrants from the Canary Islands who, aside from working in the cane fields, made a living farming, cattle ranching, fishing, and trapping for furs. The descendants of those immigrants are called the Isleños in St. Bernard Parish today.
Coiron’s greatest contribution to the sugar industry was his experiments growing ribbon cane, which proved more tolerant of cool weather than other varieties. This development in ribbon cane cultivation revolutionized the fledgling sugar industry in Louisiana.
