I apologize for the poor quality of the Ste-Anne-du-Bocage photographs.

I had only one hour to visit, the lighting was poor and I was new to photographing headstones.

Theriault Historic Building in Caraquet, New Brunswick

I am a descendant of the couple Joseph Jean Theriault and Marie-Joseph Girouard who were among the second wave of Acadians who settled in Caraquet, New Brunswick in the 18th century. This is a photo that a relative of mine took on a trip to the Caraquet Village Historique last summer. As you can see from the sign on the building, this was Nicolas D Theriault’s store.

The Acadian Blanchards of Caraquet – Links Restored

epicerie-blanchard-caraquet3Since we’ve been talking about French Canadian and Acadian Blanchards, I thought it would be fun to share a little “artefact” I have from a trip I made to Caraquet more than five years ago.

I was in the area hunting for Acadians – so I spent most of my time in local churches or on my knees peering at tombstones.

In the meantime my husband was hunting for lobster (pretty hard since it was the end of lobster season) but he did find this great business that sold Fresh Lobster – cooked or living .


I wonder if this Blanchard is a descendant of the Caraquet pioneer couple Olivier Blanchard and Catherine Amirault? Or is he rather from one of the Quebec Blanchards?

Either way these Blanchards have terrific lobster so if you’re ever in Caraquet I recommend a visit!
