Biography
'Renée Breau, probably from La Chaussée, near Blois, in the Orleanais region of the Loire valley of France, born in c1616, was the first member of the family to go to Acadia. She married Vincent Brun at La Chaussée in c1644. A year later, a kinsman named Vincent Breau stood as godfather to their daughter Madeleine, baptized at La Chaussée. (Eminent Acadian genealogist Stephen A. White concludes that this Vincent Breau probably was the one who went to Acadia a few years later, but that this Vincent was neither a brother nor a nephew of Renée.) Renée's husband Vincent Brun had gone to Acadia as a single man aboard the ship St.-Jehan in 1636, had served an indenture there as a laborer, and then returned to La Chaussée to marry. His first wife, Renée's sister, died in childbirth soon after they married, and Vincent Brun remarried to Renée Breau. He returned to Acadia in c1648, this time with a wife and two daughters. They were thus among the first families to settle in the colony.'
