The Gionets | Pioneers 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  🙂

 

The Gionets | New Brunswick pioneers | founders of Shippegan

 

The Gionets are relative latecomers to Shippegan. Robichaud and Theriault both cite Cyrenus Cerenus Gionet (son of Octave Gionet and Marcelline Lanteigne), his first wife Basilica Allain (daughter of Louis Allain and Marguerite Cooke) and his  second wife – Anastasie Paulin as the earliest Gionets in Shippegan. 

They seem to appear in the 1901 Shippegan census as Cyrinus and Anastasia Jionet – as do a certain number of  other Gionets however I haven’t found any children for these two specific couples yet!
