Germain Laverdure Doucet

M, b. 1595, d. 1654

Biography

  • Birth: Germain Laverdure Doucet was born in 1595 in Touraine, Indre-et-Loire, Centre, France.
  • Marriage: He and Marie Bourgeois were married in 1920 in France.
  • Death: Germain Laverdure Doucet died in 1654, at age ~59, in France.
  • Note: Captain of the Army at Port Royal, Acadia Germain was the Major of Governor Charles d'Aulnay , he arrived in Acadia in 1632 .Germain Doucet, also called Verdure, was a captain at arms in 1640. His french roots are found in the Brye (Brie) region of France. He returned to France after the fall of Port Royal in 1654 as part of the surrender all officers had to leave the colony .

    The single ancestor of Doucette, arrives at Hève, in Acadie, in 1632, with the commander Isaac de Razilly, where one finds him in July 1640, with the title of "Captain de Armes of Pentagouët", the right arm of the governor of Acadie, Charles de Menou d' Aulnay de Charnizay; he receives the honors of the war against Bostonnais. Germain Doucette, known as Laverdure was born about 1595, originating in the parish in Conflans-in-Brye, out of Champagne, France. After the death of the governor Charles d' Aulney, in 1650, Germain Doucette deals with the command of the fort of Royal Port and the children of the late governor. Wife of ancêtre Germain Doucette is Marie Bourgeois, s?ur of the ancestor Jacques Bourgeois, lieutenant of the garrison to Port-Royal. So now, 16 August 1654, Port-Royal must for the first time go to the English, after a burning fight of 100 soldiers against 500, it is in the condition express "That Sieur of the Greenery says it will leave strong the soldiers and servants? with weapons and drums beating, sign deployed, balls in mouth, mousquet or rifle on l?épaule? and two small parts of guns and their luggage in which will be included/understood the fur skins which will be to them deliver for the payment of their pledges and will be to them fourny bastiment for their passage in France with their food for two months and ammunition of war apartenent in the Republic

    The King of France gave Razilly, a Knight in the Order of Malta, the task of retaking possession of the colony of Acadia from the English following the treaty of St-Germain-en-Laye, which returned Acadia to France. Two ships, the St-Jehan and the L'Esperance-in-Dieu, left from d'Auray in Brittany on the 23rd of July, 1632. Germain Doucette was an officer [a Major (Captain of Arms)] among the small group of soldiers that accompanied this mission.

    Doucette apparently was accompanied by his wife, Marguerite [or Marie BOURGEOIS, the daughter of Jacques BOURGEOIS] and his son, Pierre, and his daughter, Louise-Marguerite [or Marguerite-Louise-Judith]. The family landed first at La Heve [La Have], where Germain assisted in the construction of Fort Sainte-Marie-de-Grace.

    Within three months of their arrival, Razilly sent d'Aulnay to retake Port Royal, which was still occupied by the English. Doucette, who would always be d'Aulnay's faithful friend, accompanied him on this mission. At Port Royal, those English colonists who wanted to leave the colony and return to England were boarded on the St-Jehan and sent first to La Heve. Germain Doucette then accompanied the St-Jehan to England to return the English colonists. From there, Doucette returned to France, where he met d'Aulnay aboard the Esperance-en-Dieu, and they returned to Acadia with new French colonists.

    Later, in 1635, d'Aulnay was ordered to retake possession of Fort Pentagouet at the western limit of Acadia near the present day Castin, Maine, from the British. Once again, Germain Doucette accompanied d'Aulnay, this time with his family. D'Aulnay returned to Port Royal after the fort was retaken and left Doucette in command of a small garrison. The British soon sent a detachment from Plymouth, Mass., to try to retake the fort, but the French under the command of Germain Doucette, successfully repelled the attack.

    Razilly was governor of but a part of Acadia. The rest of the colony was governed by Charles de La Tour. La Tour and Razilly coexisted in Acadia on peaceful terms, but in late 1635, Razilly died suddenly, leaving his position as governor of his part of the colony to his brother, Claude de Razilly. Unwilling to leave France, Claude de Razilly delegated his powers to Charles de Menou d'Aulnay. Soon after d'Aulnay succeeded to this post, relations with La Tour deteriorated, in part due to a confusing geographic division of the colony between the two governors by the King of France. By 1636, this quarrel had degenerated to open warfare, and La Tour demanded that d'Aulnay give up the post at Pentagouet, commanded by Doucette. D'Aulnay and Doucette refused to do so, and proceeded to make plans to reinforce the fort. A small party sent from Fort Pentagouet to Port Royal for provisions, which very well may have included the commander, Doucette, was captured by forces loyal to La Tour and held prisoner. But soon after, La Tour is defeated and captured following a naval engagement with the vessel of d'Aulnay.

    In 1645, following the death of the commander, Isaac Pessely, Doucette was named commander of the garrison at Port Royal. By 1647, the forces loyal to d'Aulnay had consolidated their power over the colony, and La Tour was forced to take refuge in Quebec. However, in May 1650, d'Aulnay drowned when his canoe overturned in the Riviere du Moulin. D'Aulnay's widow, Jeanne de Mottin, and Germain Doucette executed d'Aulnay's possession.

    In 1651, Jeanne de Mottin married her late husband's rival, Charles de La Tour, and through this marriage, La Tour retook power in the colony. Doucette signed as a witness to their marriage, and La Tour left him in command of the garrison at Port Royal.

    In July 1654, despite the fact that England and France were at peace, Major Robert Sedgewick of Boston attacked and took La Tour's fort at Pentagouet, and proceeded immediately to lay siege to Port Royal. Doucette and his men resisted the attack for 16 days, however, faced with an opponent superior in numbers and armament, Doucette was finally forced to surrender Port Royal to Sedgewick and the English. Doucette and his wife were taken prisoner and returned to France, never to return to the New World.
