Exploring the Ancestry of Guillaume BOURGEOIS: Events, Pictures, and Documents

Youngest son Guillaume, born in c1655, married Marie-Anne, daughter of Martin d'Aprendestiguy, sieur de Martignon, a Basque fur trader and seigneur of the lower Rivière St.-Jean, and Jeanne de Saint-Étienne de La Tour, daughter of former governor Charles La Tour, probably at Port-Royal in c1686. Guillaume did not follow his older brothers to Chignecto but remained with his father at Port-Royal, where he became a merchant like his father. In September 1727, he was one of the delegates from Port-Royal representing Acadian interests before the Nova Scotia Council at Port-Royal. Along with two other Acadian leaders, Charles Landry and Abraham Bourg, Guillaume refused to take the oath of allegiance to British King George II and was imprisoned for his opposition. Guillaume and his wife had only a single child, a daughter, who married into the LeBlanc family.
