The Mailloux | 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 Caraquet Mailloux came from Quebec City. Like so many other Caraquet Quebeckers, Louis Mailloux seems to have first arrived in the Baie des Chaleurs for the fishing. He eventually  married a local woman and became a Justice of the Peace.

 

Louis Mailloux (son of Louis Mailloux and Madeleine Gouin) and Suzanne Huard (daughter of Francois Huard and Genevieve Duguay) had the following children:

  • Eulalie (m. Joseph dit Francois Frigault, son of Pierre Frigault and Josette Bouthillier),
  • Osithe (m. Isaac Albert, son of Pierre Albert and Genevieve Denys),
  • Louis (m. Anne Albert, daughter of Pierre Albert and Genevieve Denys),
  • Suzanne (m. Louis Albert, son of Pierre Albert and Genevieve Denys),  and
  • Catherine.

 

 


Note: Les Familles de Caraquet has the following Mailloux family pictures: [Marie Mailloux, Mrs. Hilaire Doiron, pg.403]
