The Alberts | Pioneer Families of Caraquet

Index: Caraquet, New Brunswick

Gabriel Albert’s origin is unknown but it’s believed that he came from the Quebec Alberts and was one of a group of Quebec fishermen who came to fish in Chaleurs Bay. What is certain  is that Gabriel Albert married Genevieve Bouthillier (daughter of Joseph Bouthillier and Angelique Giraud dit Saint-Jean) in about 1751.

Their children were: Pierre (m. Genevieve Denys, daughter of Louis Denys and Madeleine Larocque), Marie (m. first to Michel Parise, son of Gilles Parise and Angelique Michaud and then to Francois Gionet, formerly married to Marie LeVicaire), Jean-Baptiste (m. Therese Lanteigne (daughter of Louis Lanteigne and Marguerite Chapadeau), Jeanne (m. Jean Lacroix).

These micro posts present the first generation of each of the families that established different surnames found in Caraquet, New Brunswick. Most of the information is drawn from Fidele Theriault’s genealogical dictionary “Les Familles de Caraquet”. His book is in French and offers a lot more information including family trees of the first generations (with precise dates)  and in many cases explanations of how the first pioneers arrived in Caraquet and other fascinating anecdotes. If you don’t have access to the book you can contact me for extra information by leaving a comment underneath this post.
