The Lebouthilliers / Bouthilliers | Pioneers of Caraquet

Index: Pioneer Families of Caraquet


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.

 

The LeBouthillier family was one of the earliest families in Caraquet. Oral history states that Joseph Bouthillier came from near Quebec City and that he came to fish in the Baie des Chaleurs. According to this story he decided to settle in Caraquet after marrying Angelique Giraud dit St. Jean who was herself from Caraquet.  Fidel Theriault says that the surname was actually Bouthillier but that Jersey merchants who operated out of the Baie des Chaleurs added the ‘”Le” prefix.

 

Joseph Bouthillier married Angelique Giraud dit St. Jean  about 1740. Angelique was the daughter of Gabriel Giraud and a un-named  First Nations woman.

 

The couple had the following children:

  • Genevieve (m. Gabriel Albert) and then a second time (m. Georges Larocque, son of Francois Larocque of Paspebiac),
  • Agnes dite Anne (m. Jean Canivet) and then (Jacques Morais, son of Louis Morais and Marie Therese Catherine Bois of Riviere-Ouelle),
  • Marie-Joseph dite Josette (m. Pierre Frigault), Venerande (m. Louis Morais, son of Louis Morais and Marie Therese Catherine Bois of Riviere-Ouelle),
  • Rene (m. Genevieve Chiasson, daughter of Joseph Chiasson  and Anne Hache).
    • Angelique (m. 1800, Charles Doiron, son of Zachary Doiron and Anne LeVicaire)
    • Rose (m. 1812, Jean-Baptiste Doiron, son of Zachary Doiron and Anne LeVicaire)
    • Edouard (m. about 1800, Agathe Parise, daughter of Michel Parise and Marie Albert)
    • Archange (m. 1807, Pierre Albert, son of Pierre Albert and Genevieve Denis)
    • Theotiste (m. Henri Chenard, son of Henri Chenard and Therese Canivet)
    • Damien (m. 1814, Isabelle Gionet, daugher of Francois Gionet and Marie Roussi)

Notes: Mgr Donat Robichaud Genealogical and Historical Research Collection (FR): LeBouthillier, T.H,1925, A fishing vessel went down with all aboard. Caraquet families are in mourning.  The Caraquet fishermen who did return from fishing last Saturday recounted the tragic accident that had taken place with their four comrades on Thursday. The four were the crew of the T.H.B.  The small fishing fleet had stopped at the banks when a very violent wind suddenly rose up.The other boats had already folded their sails and dropped their anchors. Once the gale had passed the fishers saw that the T.H.B. – with all hands aboard – had disagreed.The crew consisted of Captain Prosper Leger who leaves his wife and several grandchildren. The second was Alexandre Frigault, who leaves his wife and five children. Pascal Leger (unmarried) was the son of the captain. Pierre Blanchard was married and father of one child. The boat belonged to T.H. LeBouthillier.  This tragedy plunged the whole parish of Bas-Caraquet into shock.]
