    There story and those that are related to us. Michel Boudrot, was born in France around 160I and settled in Port Royal, Nova Scotia, then Acadia during the 1630s, is the ancestor of the Acadian family of that name. He was probably recruited by Gov. Charles d'Aulnay since he was present at the baptism of the governor's daughter, Marie d'Aulnay, on Sept. 21, 1639, in his capacity as First Trustee of Port-Royal. He was also one of the signatories of an attestation favourable to d'Aulnay's works in 1687. At the Port-Royal census of 1671, he was 71 years old and the father of a family of 11 children, three of whom were married. He had married Michelle Aucoin ABOUT 1641. In 1686, he was lieutenant general and judge of the Port-Royal tribunal. His son Charles settled at Pisiguit (Windsor, NS) and Claude at Grand-Pre, while Jean and Michel went to Beaubassin (Amherst, NS). His other sons stayed at Port-Royal, including Abraham my wife's direct descendant, who was a navigator and merchant. He traded with Boston on his shallop, the Marie. In January 1693, Commander de Villebon sent him on a mission to Boston where he was to make discreet inquiries about the state of affairs there and to report to him. He seems to have acquitted himself of his mission with success.

    From Port Royal, these descendants had various residences. Before finally arriving on Isle Madame on Cape Breton Island they lived for periods of time on St. Pierre & Miquelon, French Islands south of the southeast coast of the Province of Newfoundland (still owned by France), Madeleine Island in the Gulf of St. Lawrence and finally Isle Madame, one of the great seaport areas of the 19th and early part of the 20th century. Following in the footsteps of Abraham, several descendants of Michel Boudrot and Michelle Aucoin became navigators. In 1755, the Boudrot family was a large one and established in several communities in Acadia. This family was deported in several places in North America and in Europe. Several can be found in different New England colonies, including Massachusetts, Philadelphia, Connecticut and Louisiana. Many were thrown in prisons in southern England (Bristol and Southampton in particular), and were later transported to France after the Treaty of Paris, in 1763. These families were established at Belle-Isle-en-Mer, Cherbourg and Saint-Malo in Northern France. Several of those families found a way of returning to Acadia. Among them, the family of Germain Boudreau who was one of the pioneers of Cheticamp in Cape Breton. Several Boudreau families living at Beaubassin, Î le Saint-Jean and Cape Breton were able to escape the Deportation and found refuge in Quebec. They are to be found in different communities but notably in the Nicolet, Repentigny and Deschambault areas. Others made their way to the & Icirc; les-de-la-Madeleine at Petit de Grat on Isle Madame in Cape Breton. Several families settled in New Brunswick in the Memramcook Saint Anselme area, in Caraquet and in Petit-Rocher. The family of Pierre Boudreau and Madeleine Melanson from Port-Royal established itself at Memramcook. Their son, Isaac Boudreau, became the captain of a company of Acadians who supported the American War of Independence. Another of his sons settled at Inkerman in the northern part of the province. Joseph Boudreau, son of Anselme and Marguerite Gaudet of Beaubassin, found refuge at Restigouche on Chaleur Bay where he married Jeanne Hache in 1761. He later lived during a few years on Miscou before settling in Caraquet. He died at Nipisiguit in 1797 However, he is not the sole ancestor of that family in Petit-Rocher since another Boudreau, Joseph-Athanase, who had lived for several years at Deschambault, Quebec, also settled in Petit-Rocher at the close of the 18th century. The latter was a miller and is the ancestor of the Boudreau's of Beresford.

Dates from Ancestral Files AFN:385M-1X He was a passenger on the St Jehan which sailed from LaRochelle on April 1, 1636 for New France. He was listed as a toolsmith on the passenger list. In 1640, D'Aulnay directed him, together with Germain Doucet dit LaVerdure and Isaac Pessely to start proceedings against Charles de la Tour. On August 16, 1654 as a syndic for the inhabitants, he signed the act of capitulation of Port Royal.

Bluebonnet Regional Library, Baton Rouge LA G929.2C753T Trahan, Nicolas to Guillaume to You, vol 1 1992 Wise Printing Co, Sulfur LA Notes: Guillaume Trahan "father of all the Trahans of North America". The circumstances which brought him to North America (Acadia), may never be fully known, many theorize he came as a means of escaping to a new land rife with forestation, a must for any toolsmith in those days. Previous to his decision to leave France, Guillaume had been charged with illegally cutting wood for his hearth from the private forest of Cardinal Richeleu, a top minister of the French Government. Regardless of the reasons involved, Guillaume, his wife Francoise Charbonneau, and their two children, and a valet sailed on April 1, 1636 for Acadia on the ship St.Jehan. The history of Guillaume has been thoroughly examined and written about by numerous authors/historians, most noteabley Genvevieve Maisson and Conrad Trahan. Child #2 Trahan - this unnamed child was born in France, made the ocean voyage from France to Acadia in 1636 with her family and is never again mentioned. DAR Library, Washington DC Madawaskan Heritage, Leo G. Cyr 1965 Leo Cyr p81 : "Vessels came and went between LaRochelle and Acadia, but the only available passenger list is that of the Saint Jehan out of LaRochelle on April 1, 1636. Among its passengers were Pierre Martin, a farmer, with his wife and one child, and Guillaume Trahan, a master toolsmith, and his wife, their two daughters and his journeyman, all from Bourgueil in Anjou. These may have been the first family units in Acadia." .... "In 1645 , d'Aulnay destroyed LaTour's Fort Sainte Marie at the mouth of the St-John river and hanged the entire garrison, except one. He then built a fort at Menagoueche Point on an elevation above the island now known as Navy Island at West St-John, New Brunswick. By 1654, the feud had so weakened the tiny colony that the fort at Port Royal fell easy prey to the surrender demands of English Captain Robert Sedgwick, acting under orders from Oliver Cromwell. The French commandant, Germain Doucet, Sieur de la Verdue, gave his lieutenant and brother-in-law, Jacques Bourgeois, as a hostage until capitulation could be consummated. Among the signers of the captiulation of August 16, 1654 were one Robert Martin and Guillaume Trahan, the latter signing as the representative of Port Royal's population." p82 : Emigrants to Acadia 1630's From Anjou, France : Guillaume Trahan & Francoise Corbineau -1-.
