  • Marriage: He and Priscilla Melanson were married in 1630 in Yorkshire, England.
  • Death: Pierre L'Avendure died in December 1676, at age ~68, in Boston, Suffolk Co, Massachusetts.
  • Note: Many a writer has tried to explain the origins of this family. It was generally believed that the Melancon were of Scottish origin, but this assumption was based on a historic mistake. There is no document that demonstrates that the Melancons who came to Acadia were of Scottish decent, in fact to the contrary there is proof that they were of English decent


    The two Melancon brothers, Pierre, dit Laverdure, a stonemason, born in 1632, the spouse of Marie Marguerite Muis d'Entremont, the doughter of Lord of Pomcoup, Philippe Mius d' Entremont, and Charles, born in 1643, the husband of Marie Dugas, the daughter of Armourer Abraham Dugas and Marguerite Doucet of Port Royal, arrived in Port Royal accompatied their parents aboard the ship the Satisfaction, with Sir Thomas Temple, the new English Governor of Acadia, which arrived in 1657. During almost a century, just until the deportation of the Acadians in 1755, the settlement was the place of residence of Charles Melanson and his wife Marie Dugas, and their descendents and associates.


    "The Melancon Settlement" is one of the principle Canadian archeological sites illustrating the way of rural life in Acadia in the 17th and 18th centuries. It is a mirror of the various aspects of the daily life, their homes, material culture and their prosperity.

    1755:DEPORTATION: In the Autumn of 1755, 1660 Acadians of the region of Port Royal embarked on the ships toward exile. Charles and Ambroise Melanson took refuge in Quebec, while Jean Melanson and his family were refugies in France with a group of Acadians Cape Sable. Others were deported to Maryland and other States. The Melanson like hundreds of other Acadians were imprisoned in the military fortresses which were neither more or less than concentration camps. At gun point, English soldiers forced them to work for them. The Melansons were imprisoned at Fort Cumberland and Edward.


    Today, this large Acadian family the name of (Melanson)Melanson-Melancon-Malanson-Malonson can be found in all of Canada, the United States and in France. These Acadians all descendents of Pierre and Charles Melanson arrived in Acadia during 3 1/2 centruies. The majority of Charles' descendents returned to the former Acadia, resettling in Nova Scotia and Southern New Brunswick, and in the USA in the States of Maine and Massachusetts, most continuing to spell their name Melanson, but some have changed to Malanson and Malonson. The majority of Pierre's descendents however did not return, resettling in Louisiana, Quebec, and Northern New Brunswick, in the Bathurst region. It is the branch of the family that today predominately spells their name MELANCON. the only descendent of Pierre known to have returned to Nova Scotia was Charles Marie who settled in Pomquet after returning with his mother from exile in France.

    Pierre Laverdure fled France for England after fall of LaRochelle in 1628. He and his family left England in (1657) on "Satisfaction" under command of Captain Butler forming the "Company" for Sir Thomas Temple, new Governor of Acadie. They went through Boston in route to Fort St. John, where they stoped. After the "Treaty of Breda"(1667), he and his family fled to Boston to escape the"wrath of Papists" in Fort St.John. He left Pierre & Charles behind with their French wives and families. He died of heart at in Boston as the result of his son's(John) illegal, slave trading Indians.

Martin Aucoin, carpenter old d?environ 22 years, marries with the Small rock, about 1617, Barbe Minguet or Minguette.

Possibly, Martin Aucoin leaves about 1640, for Acadie, accompanied by Marie Salle and the children of his two marriages. Unfortunately, we do not n?avons a trace of its presence in Acadie. Perhaps it was already deceased, before the departure of its widow about 1640. The census of l?Acadie, in 1671, indicates that widowed Marie Sale of Jehan Claude, is 71 years old. This Jehan Claude made l?objet of several polemic and interpretations on behalf of several genealogists. Jehan Claude, Claude could be his surname or it either Indian, or that it is really l?ancêtre called Jean-Claude Landry, was born in 1595, in Ventrouze, of Mortagne, with the Pole. Marie Salle dies between 1683 and 1693, with Port-Royal, in Acadie. In the various found acts, one notes C-Ws communication different from the name Aucoin such as Aucouin, Aucoing, Ancoing, Auconnois and Oguin.
