Caraquet Pioneers


The Caraquet Beaulieus  descend from three marriages: Olivier Beaulieu and his first wife Marguerite Laviolette, and second wife Scholastique Mallet, daughter of Jean Mallet and Anne Gionet) and his third wife Henriette Martin. It’s believed that Olivier Beaulieu was a Quebec fisherman and was probably from Kamouraska.

Olivier Beaulieu and Marguerite Laviolette had only one child – Marie (m. Dosithee Comeau, daughter of Athanase Comeau and Madeleine Thibodeau).

Olivier and his second wife Scholastique Mallet had three children: Angele (m. Daniel Savoie, formerly married to Osithe Saint-Pierre), Marie (m. Vital Paulin) and Jean.

Oliver’s third wife Henriette Martin (widow of Pierre Allaire) gave him two children – Marie Henriette and Marie Emond.

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.
