      Possibly born in Plymouth, Devon, England instead.

      From A Point in History: "First settler: Lawrence (Laurent) Granger was a sailor, who with Michel deForest and Pierre Melanson established themselves in Acadia and married Acadians. This occured between 1654 and 1667 when Acadia was in the hands of the English. Lawrence Granger was born in 1637 at Plymouth, England. He is part of that small percentage of Acadians who do not have their roots in France. Having arrived in 1659, he married an Acadian, Marie Landry, in 1666. From this union 8 children were born. Joseph Granger (third generation of this same lineage) born in 1707, was deported to Falmouth, England where he died in 1757."
