The Savoie Family contributed by Fidele Theriault

"… The Acadian Savoie family is descended from only one pioneer, Francois Savoie who was born in France in 1621 … Only one of his sons, Germain, who had settled up river from Port-Royal and who had married Marie Breau, left descendants in Acadia. … The Savoies of New Brunswick are descended from Germain who fathered six sons, including Jean dit Iane, Jean-Baptiste dit Baptist and Joseph who all settled in Shipoudie (Hopewell) during the first half of the 18th century. Because of this move, the Savoies are among the oldest families in New Brunswick. According to a story noted by Placide Gaudet and published in the form of a letter to Le Moniteur Acadien, the Savoies were among 85 Acadians arrested by the British in August, 1755, and imprisoned at Fort Lawrence in Beaubassin. During the night of October 1 - 2, the Acadians escaped through a hole which they had dug under the walls of the fort. They joined their families in Petitcodiac where they placed themselves under the protection of commander Charles Deschamps sieur de Boishebert. During the summer of 1756 these families traveled to the Miramichi where the number of Acadian refugees was estimated at 3,500. The large families of these Acadian pioneers, belonging to Jean, Jean-Baptiste and Joseph Savoie quickly spread throughout the Miramichi and in the neighboring areas. At the beginning of 1800 their children or grandchildren were settled at Oak Point, in Tabusintac, Tracadie, Pokemouche, Lameque, Shippagan, Bouctouche, Eel River and even at Carleton in the Gaspe."

Did You Know? Québec Généalogie - What is a 'dit/dite' name?  When the first settlers came to Québec from France it was a custom to add a 'dit' nickname to the surname. The English translation of 'dit' is 'said'. The Colonists of Nouvelle France added 'dit' names as distinguishers. A settler might have wanted to differentiate their family from their siblings by taking a 'dit' name that described the locale to which they had relocated. The acquiring of a 'dit' name might also be the result of a casual adoption, whereby the person wanted to honor the family who had raised them. Another reason was also to distinguish themselves by taking as a 'dit' name the town or village in France from which they originated. This custom ended around 1900 when people began using only one name, either the 'dit' nickname or their original surname.
