Bertin Genealogy

The first Bertin to settle in Canada was the Frenchman Joseph-Gabriel Bertin.  He was a sergeant with Montcalm’s troops (Languedoc regiment).   On November 10th, 1760 he married Marie-Josephe Lefebvre  in Cap-Sante, Quebec. It is their eldest son Dr. Jean-Joseph Bertin and his second wife Marguerite Pitre who would found the first New Brunswick line of Bertins.

Jean-Joseph Bertin‘s first wife had been Charlotte Dubois, daughter of Jean-Baptiste Dubois and Marie Helot. That marriage took place on August 11th, 1783 in Notre-Dame-de-Foy in Quebec.

After the death of his first wife, Jean-Joseph married Marguerite Pitre (daughter of Michel Pitre and Marie Orison) in 1790 in Nepisiguit. Jean-Joseph Bertin and Marguerite Pitre had the following children: Joseph (m.
