Pioneers of Croquet


There are two couples who were the first Beaudins of Caraquet. They are Alexis Beaudin who married Salomee Lanteigne (daughter of Eloi Beaudin and Marie-Blanche Arsenault) and his brother Pierre Beaudin who married Henriette Hebert (daughter of Joseph Hebert and Anne Chiasson).

Fidele Theriault says that both brothers are believed to be the sons of Pierre Beaudin and Marie Methot of Anse-du-Cap, Grande-Riviere, Quebec.¢

These micro posts present the first generation of each of the families established the 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.
