For additional information including precise dates and following generations, please leave your questions in a comment box below.

 

The first Frigaults in Caraquet were Pierre Frigault (probably born in France) and his wife Marie-Joseph dit Josette Bouthillier (daughter of Joseph Bouthillier  and Angelique Giraud dit St. Jean).

Their children were:

  • Pierre (m. Marie Lanteigne, daughter of Louis Lanteigne and Marguerite Chapadeau),
  • Francois (m. Helene Chiasson),
  • Marie (m. Jean-Baptiste Leclerc dit Francoeur, son of Jean-Baptiste Leclerc and Josette Duval),

  • Joseph dit Francois (m. Eulalie Mailloux, daughter of Louis Mailloux and Suzanne Huard),
  • Rene (m. Euphrosyne Chiasson, daughter of Pierre Chiasson and Marguerite Duguay).

 


Notes: Mgr Donat Robichaud Genealogical and Historical Research Collection (FR): [Frigault, Alexandre,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.]
