The Mallets | Pioneer Families of Shippegan

Index: Pioneer Families of Shippegan

This is a series of micro posts about the pioneers of Shippagan in Gloucester County, New Brunswick. Each post is organized around initial information from Msg. Donat Robichaud’s Le Grand Chipagan: Histoire de Shippagan, supplemented with genealogical data from F. Theriault’s Les Families de Caraquet and is now being gradually enriched with information from other sources. These are mostly French-language sources and some aren’t easily available, so if you need more information please leave your questions in a comment box below  🙂


Jean Mallet (son of Francois Mallet and Marie Madeleine Larocque) and Marie Josephte Duguay (daughter of Rene Duguay and Marguerite LeBreton) emigrated to Shippagan about 1791 and they were the first Mallets to settle in Shippegan. Jean’s father Francois was from Bouillon (d’Avranches) while Jean’s mother was a daughter of Francois Larocque and Marguerite Caplan.

  • Joseph (m. Felicite Gionet, daughter of Francois Gionet and Marie LeVicaire), 
  • Jean (m. Anne-Marie Gionet, daughter of Francois Gionet and Marie LeVicaire),
