Exploring the Ancestry of Germain DOUCET: Events, Pictures, and Documents

Germain Doucet, sieur de La Verdure, of Couperans or Conflans en Brie, France, a minor nobleman and 'captain at arms,' born in the mid-1590s, came to Acadia with Isaac de Razilly and the sieur d'Aulnay in 1632. This makes him one of the first permanent settlers of Acadia. He was master at arms at Pentagouët, present-day Maine, in 1640 and testified in an inquiry against former governor Charles La Tour that year. Germain was mentioned in the will of the sieur d'Aulnay, written in 1649, the year before the governor died.
