The Haches | Pioneer Families of Shippegan

Index: Pioneer Families of Shippegan

This is a series of micro posts about the pioneers of Shippagan in Gloucester County, New Brunswick. Each post is organized around initial information from Msg. Donat Robichaud’s Le Grand Chipagan: Histoire de Shippagan, supplemented with genealogical data from F. Theriault’s Les Families de Caraquet and is now being gradually enriched with information from other sources. These are mostly French-language sources and some aren’t easily available, so if you need more information please leave your questions in a comment box below  🙂



Most of the earliest Haches in Shippegan descended from Louis Hache and Anne Chiasson who settled in Shippagan with their three sons Joseph, Jean-Bte and Louis. Most branches of the family moved on to other areas but Robichaud gives details about one branch that were present at the time of the 1871 census.

Bruno Hache (son of Jean-Baptiste and Francoise Hache-Gallant) and Marie Robichaud (daughter of David Robichaud and Rebecca Savoie) were married in 1829 and are the founding Haches of Shippegan.

Their children were:

  • Israel (m. M. Rose Godin, widow of Charles Landry) and then Olive McGrath (daughter of Saturnin McGrath and Clemente Brideau),
  • Henriette,
  • Charlotte (m. Luc Savoie, son of Luc Savoie and Antoinette Chiasson),
  • Timoleon,
  • Philomene (m. Pierre Duguay, son of Jean-Louis Duguay and Esther Guignard),
  • Basilice,
  • Adolphe (m. Marie Savoie (daughter of Luc Savoie and Antoinette Chiasson).
