    Notes:

    From http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=katheriot&id=I2264: "Bona Arsenault, Histoire et Genealogie des Acadiens; 1625-1810; Ottawa, Editions Lemeac, 1978, 6 vols.; p. 1019. Born 1648, a Portuguese 'matelot or seaman, son of Emmanuel & Catherine Spire of the parish St. Croix, Isle Granore, in the Azores. A footnote says that in 1670 he was at Quebec. In Acadia, he lived at Mirande butte (in our day Mount Whattey) near Beaubassin. He married at Beaubassin on 30 Nov 1679 to Marguerite Bourgeois; nine children. Emmanuel died around 1706; his widow married Pierre Maisonnat of Port Royal."

    The same source notes that Winston De Ville's Acadian Church Records 1679-1757 (Ville Platte, Louisiana, 1993, reprint of Polyanthos, c. 1964) calls him "a Portuguese from the parish of Ste. Croix on the Isle of Graise." Graciosa Island is its name today.

  3. 6.  Jacques Bourgeois was born between 1616 and 1621 in France; died in 1701 in Port-Royal, Acadia.

    Notes:

    Or Jacob. Surgeon in 1671 census; lieutenant of Port-Royal on 1654-08-16; 1st settler of Beaubassin in 1672.

    From A Point in History:

    Jacques Bourgeois, the son of a military officer, arrived in Acadia around 1642 from Couperans-en-Brie, Champagne, France where he was born about 1620. He was a surgeon (medical man). He arrived with Charles de Menou d'Aulnay who was returning from France to Acadia after being named the governor. At the head of an armada of 4 ships, d'Aulnay brought a recruitment to Acadia composed of artisans, workers and 18 complete families. Despite the capitulation of Port Royal in August 1654 following an British attack, Jacques Bourgeois decided to remain in Acadia with his wife, Jeanne Trahan, and his two sons and two daughters. Following the withdrawal of troops from the French garrison, the English decided also to leave, and the habitants governed themselves by means of a council presided over by Bourgeois' father-in-law, Guillaume Trahan. [...]

    In time, he was a lieutenant of the Port Royal militia. [...] At the 1671 Acadian census, he had 20 or so acres of land under cultivation, 33 head of cattle and 24 sheep. [...] In 1672, he founded the Bourgeois colony, later known as Beaubassin on Chinectou Bay.

    Many of their descendants were deported to Massachusetts. [...] Jacques Bourgeois' great-grandson, Armand Bourgeois married Marguerite Dugas in L'Assomption, PQ in 1766. Armand's parents, Claude Bourgeois and Marie LeBlanc married in Acadia in 1721. It would appear that when the family made its way back to Canada, they arrived in Québec, or maybe they had left Acadia before the expulsion.

    Jacques married Jeanne Trahan about 1643 in Acadia. Jeanne (daughter of Guillaume Trahan and Françoise Corbineau) was born between 1626 and 1631 in Chinon, Indre-et-Loire, Centre, France; died after 1697 in Beaubassin, Acadia. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  4. 7.  Jeanne Trahan was born between 1626 and 1631 in Chinon, Indre-et-Loire, Centre, France (daughter of Guillaume Trahan and Françoise Corbineau); died after 1697 in Beaubassin, Acadia.
    Children:
    1. 3. Marguerite Bourgeois was born between 1658 and 1661.


Generation: 4

  1. 14.  Guillaume Trahan was born between 1601 and 1611 in Saint-Pierre, Montreuil-Bellay, Maine-et-Loire, France (son of Nicolas Trahan and Renée Desloges); died about 1685 in Port-Royal, Acadia; was buried in Garrison Graveyard, Annapolis Royal, Annapolis, Nova Scotia.

    Notes:

    Embarked at La Rochelle on 1636-04-01 with his wife and his two children, arrived in Port-Royal 1636-05. He was a blacksmith and an edge-tool maker (maréchal de tranchant).

    From "A Point in History": "Guillaume Trahan was a blacksmith and a toolsmith from Bourgueil, Anjou, France. He departed Anjou, 4-1-1636 on the ship St. Jehan, with his wife, Françoise Charboneau, and 7-year old daughter, Jeanne Trahan. At the 1671 Acadian census, Guillaume Trahan was about 60 years old and a marshall (maréschal) living with his second wife and three young children. He had 8 head of cattle, 10 sheep and 5 acres under cultivation."

    Through Guillaume Trahan and his second wife Madeleine Brun, TNH is a ninth cousin to Beyoncé Knowles:

    Guillaume Trahan (1601-1685) = Madeleine Brun (b. 1643)
    Jean Charles Trahan (b. ~1688) = Marie Boudreau (b. ~1675)
    Pierre Trahan = Jeanne Daigle
    Pierre Trahan (b. ~1737) = Marguerite Duhon (b. 1741)
    Marie Françoise Trahan = Joseph Broussard
    Rosemond Broussard (~1800-~1864) = Joséphine-Adelania Broussard (~1801-~1847)
    Eloy-René Broussard (b. ~1824-1866) = Celestine *
    Odelia Broussard (~1864-1929) = Eugène-Gustave DeRouen (~1860-1937)
    Agnèz DeRouen (1909-1980) = Lumis Albert Buyincé (1910-1982)
    Célestine Anne Beyincé (1954- ) = Mathew Knowles (1952- )
    Beyoncé Giselle Knowles (1981- )

    * Eloy-René Broussard's "domestic servant", which may or may not have meant slave. It is unclear whether they ever married, but she bore him 13 children, among them Odelia Broussard. Eloy-René was definitely married to Josephine Lesser (b. ~1840), but she wasn't Odelia's mother.
