The Plourdes | Pioneers of Caraquet

Index: Pioneer Families of Caraquet


These micro posts present the first generations 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.

The Jeans | Pioneers of Caraquet

The earliest Caraquet Jeans were from a group who came from Quebec at the end of the 1830s in the midst of a severe economic crisis. They settled in various communities in the area. The Caraquet founding couple were Pierre Jean (son of Regis Jean and Marie-Joseph Gauvin) who had married Rosalie Rose Lepage (daughter of Antoine Lepage and Catherine Nolet) while still in Trois-Pistoles, Quebec.

 

They had the following children:

  • Marguerite (m. Beloni Plourde, prob. the son of Stanislas Plourde and Perpetue Hudon fit Beaulieu),
  • Adelaide (m. Stanislas Plourde, son of Pierre Plourde and Perpetue Hudon dit Beaulieu),
  • David (m. Seraphie Barry, daughter of John Barry and Marie Gionet),
  • Edouard (m. Symphorienne Savoie, daughter of Edouard Savoie and Charlotte Robichaud and then Marie Guignard, widow of Francois David),
  • Narcisse (m. Osithe Noel, daughter of Jean Noel and Marie Garant and then Marie Salomee Guignard, daughter of Pierre Guignard and Marguerite Savoie and finally Madeleine Leclerc, daughter of Marcel Leclerc and Marie Hache).
  • Pierre (m. Marie-Madeleine Gionet, daughter of Charles Gionet and Genevieve LeBreton), then Archange Gionet, daughter of Pierre Gionet and Helene Thebault).
  • Joachim Toussaint (m. Antoinette Gionet, daughter of Pierre Gionet and Helene Thebault),
  • Therese (m. Regis Hache, son of Antoine Hache and Celeste Landry),
  • Souveraine,
  • Marie-Desanges aka Marie-Jeanne (m. Joseph Gallant, son of Antoine Gallant and Celeste Landry).
