The Mazerolles | 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.

 

Pierre Mazerolle and Isabelle Martin (of Pokemouche) had the following children:

  • Dina (not married),
  • Marie (m. Agapit Theriault, son of Pierre Theriault and Emilie LeBreton),
  • Pierre,
  • Odile,
  • Germain (m. Eleonore Mallet, widow of Olivier Power),
  • Venerande (m. Xavier Paulin, son of Chrysologue Paulin, widower of Louise Godin).

 


Note: Les Familles de Caraquet has the following Mazerolle family pictures: [Louis Mazerolle, son of Gregoire Mazerolle, and his wife Celina Gallien, daughter of Jules Gallien, pg.369]

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. Continue reading
