This series of Early French Canadian Pioneer microposts is dedicated to the earliest settlers of Quebec. If you are new to the genealogy of French-speaking Canadians, please be aware that the earliest French settlers can also descend from the Acadian pioneers who originally settled in what are now Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. In addition, please note that any Native related links refer back to other posts citing census, marriage or other documents with indigenous or Metis individuals of that surname, however those individuals do not necessarily descend from those particular French Canadian settlers. All these posts are intended as Finding Aides – a place to find possible clues and start your own research!

  1. I think you have a wonderful site, and am so happy I stumbled on to it. I was happy to see my ancestors Etienne Blanchard and Marie Jouet listed as “early French Canadian pioneers of Canada”. I have been researching Etienne Blanchard for many years, and have been lucky to obtain a lot of information on him and his family. I was lucky to find a article (in French) on Etienne in a recent issue of Memories a genealogical publication from Montreal. I have been trying to translate the article, but have not made much progress. I enjoy your information on postcards. I try to reunite people with old photographs and postcards i come across at flea markets and garage sales. I have been successful on a few occasions. Sorry to ramble on. Keep up the good work

  3. The Acadians Blanchard actually descend from Jean Blanchard and Radegonde Lambert. One of their sons was Guillaume Blanchard (1650-1714) and Huguette Gougeon (1655-1717). They had 12 children. Here is the explanation provided by Stephen A White (Dictionnaire généalogique des Familles Acadiennes):

    BLANCHARD, Jean, came from France with his wife, according to Jean LeBlanc, husband of his great-granddaughter Françoise Blanchard (Doc. inéd., Vol. III, p. 43). The deposition of Françoise’s nephews Joseph and Simon-Pierre Trahan is to the same effect (ibid., p. 123). Both depositions mistakenly give Guillaume as the ancestor’s given name. Jean LeBlanc’s makes an additional error regarding the name of Jean Blanchard’s wife, calling her Huguette Poirier. The censuses of 1671 and 1686 meanwhile clearly show that she was named Radegonde Lambert (see DGFA-1, pp. 143-144). The source of these errors is probably a simple confusion arising from the fact that Jean LeBlanc’s wife’s grandfather Martin Blanchard had a brother Guillaume who was married to a woman named Huguette, as this writer explained in an article published in 1984 (SHA, Vol. XV, pp. 116-117). This Huguette was not named Poirier, however, but Gougeon, although her mother, Jeanne Chebrat, had married a man named Jean Poirier before she wed Huguette’s father Antoine Gougeon, and all her male-line descendants in Acadia were Poiriers. Unfortunately, we do not know just what questions Jean LeBlanc asked in trying to establish the Blanchard lineage, but he might certainly have had the impression that Huguette was a Poirier from the fact that so many of her relatives were Poiriers, including her grandnephew Joseph, who was also on Belle-Île in 1767.
