The Bouchers | Pioneer Families of Shippegan

The Boucher founding family of Shippegan (Chaleurs Bay, New Brunswick)

The first Bouchers in Shippegan were William Boucher (son of Desire Boucher and Cleante Lanteigne)  and Venerante Robichaud (widow of Charles DelaGarde). William and Venerante had the following offspring: M. Philomene, Joseph (m. Emilie Robichaud, daughter of Georges Robichaud and Philomene DeGrace and then Vitaline Hache, daughter of Israel Hache and Olive McGrath). William’s parents were from Caraquet and descended from Joseph Boucher and Elisabeth Martin whose offspring settled in Caraquet, Bathurst, Couctouche and then Grande-Anse, Inkerman and as stated above, Shippegan.

Notes: This series of posts is based on information found in Le Grand Chipagan: Histoire de Shippagan by Donat Robichaud, and will be gradually supplemented with information  from Fidele Theriault’s Les Families de Caraquet and other sources.
