The Bulgers | 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  🙂

 

The Shippegan Bulgers descend from Patrick Bulger (believed to be the son of Michael Bulger of Pokemouche) and his wife Louise (Ludivine Divine) Duguay (daughter of Francois Duguay and Madeleine Chapados). Continue reading

Francois Duguay (son of Rene Duguay and Marguerite Lebreton of Paspebiac) and Madeleine Chapados (daughter of Jean Chapados and Catherine Larocque) are the Duguay founding couple in Shippagan, New Brunswick. Francois had arrived in Shippagan in 1791 with his brother Jacquot Duguay (m. Veronique Chapados) and brother-in-law Jean Mallet. They were among those in the Acadian Diaspora who had fled from Pisiquit, towards Restigouche and finally Shippagan.

Was Francois Larocque a Native? | Evelyn in Montreal

A message from Rejeanne Chiasson

I too am of the descendants of Francois Larocque and Marguerite Caplan. I’m looking for the birth or death of John Larocque, son of Charles Larocque and Margaret McKinnon. Charles was the son of Francois Larocque. I miss the information that can say that John was Indian. Please if anyone has information regarding this, it would be greatly appreciated and also might have a chance to meet relatives or descendants from afar. Here are my offspring. I do not know either if Charles Larocque with other children, if it is available I would like to know more. | Francois Laroque and Marguerite Caplan – Charles Larocque and Margaret McKinnon – Jean Larocque Larocque and Bridgitte- Brigitte and Michel Larocque Mallet – Claire and Michel Larocque Ache (Hache) – Georges Larocque (my grandfather) married twice. Artemisia is the first and the second is LeBouthillier Louise Larocque (she is my grandmother) Larocque and Ida Pierre.J. Chiasson

Notes from Robert Engelhardt / Anne Chapados & J-B Anglehart

Earlier today, Researcher Robert Engelhardt provided this additional information –

The earliest birth record for a child of Anne Chapados and J-B Anglehart that I have found in the Quebec Parish Records (formerly visible at FamilySearch) was for Anne, born in 1788 at Paspebiac.

Her name was written as “Anne Agrahat”.  Her parents were listed as “Jean Baptiste Agrahat” and “Anne Chapadeau”.

The 1792 birth of Jean-Baptiste is listed as “Jean Engleat”(accent over second “e”).

From the records that I’ve been able to find, the phonetic used of angle heart appears almost immediately after the “Migkelharte” marriage record.

 Thank you again, Robert!

Update: Jean Baptiste Anglehart/Anne Chapados Family Tree Book

Last May, Maurice Anglehart (a descendant of Jacques Anglehart and Anastasie Huard through Jacques Anglehart/Florence Peaudemarthe and then Antoine Anglehart & Marie-Lousie Cyr)  left a message announcing an Anglehart family reunion and the preparation of a new genealogy book. Here’s his original message and an update.

I am from l’Anse-aux-Gascons, Gaspé peninsula, Québec. Mr Gerald Brotherton is now working on the genealogy tree of the Anglehart, from Jean-Baptiste & Anne Chapados of Paspebiac. To help him out, everyone should send me by E-Mail all the information you have; that way, our book could be ready by this summer. Once the book ready, we are planning to organize a family reunion of all the ENGELHARDT and Anglehart having roots from Paspebiac in 1783. Continue reading
