Am I Your Ancestor?
BREAU (BRAULT) Family Tree

What started out as our family is now your’s too!


Vincent BREAU (BRAULT) was born abt. 1631 in France

Vincent BREAU (BRAULT) was the child of René BRAULT   and   Marie RENEAUME and the grandchild of: (paternal)  Rene-Rene BREAU (BREAULT) and Angelique COCHARD BREAU

Vincent was an immigrant to Canada, arriving by 1659.

Spouse(s)/Partner(s) and Child(ren):

Vincent  married  Marie BOURC (BOURG) bet, 1659-1661 in Port Royal, Acadia .  The couple had (at least) 11 children. Marie BOURC (BOURG)  was born abt. 1645 in Annapolis Royal, Annapolis, Nova Scotia, Canada (Port Royal, Acadia).  Marie died 19 September 1730 in Annapolis Royal, Annapolis, Nova Scotia, Canada (Port Royal, Acadia).  Marie was the child of Antoine BOURQUE (BOURG) (BOURC) and Antoinette LANDRY.

Vincent BREAU (BRAULT) died abt. 1686 in Port Royal, Acadia .

"Among the names in the census of 1671 is that of Vincent Brot, aged 40. His wife was Marie Bourc, and they had four children, two boys, Antoine and Pierre, and two girls. I have been unable to find any further mention of this name in any census or other Acadian document, and am therefore forced to the conclusion that Brot is not a name, but a misprint or an error of the copyist, and that it stands for some other name snch as Breau or Brou. This idea is strengthened by finding the name Breau both at Port Royal and Mines in 1714. In 1730 among those who signed the oath of allegiance at Port Royal were Jean Brou and Pierre Brou and Jean and Ambroise Breau. Among those deported from Mines in 1755 by Wins- low were Cherussim Braux and Francis Braux. We also find the name of Breau represented at Beausejour ifi 1752 by one family from Petitcodiac, two from Shepody and one from Mines. I think that it may be safely inferred that Brot is an error and that the name of Antoine Bourc's son-in-law was Vincent Breau. Brou and Braux appear to be different ways of spelling the same name, for among people like the Acadian peasants, most of whom could neither read or write, the spelling of names must have varied a good deal. In 1720 Peter Brou was named by Governor Philipps as a proper person to represent the inhabitants of Mines at a conference with him at Annapolis. Here we have another spelling of the name Breau. There are now a few families of this name in the Maritime Provinces, about 30 in all, who spell their name Breaux. They are all residents of Northumberland. Breans are quite numerous among the French, but whether this is a mis-spelling of Breau or not I am not prepared to say."

Biography
'Vincent Breau dit Vincelotte, probably from La Chaussée, born in c1631, came to Acadia in c1652 as a plowman. In c1761 he married Marie, daughter of Antoine Bourg, at Port-Royal. They had a dozen children. Five of their sons, all born at Port-Royal created families of their own. Four of their daughters married into the Savoie, Gaudet, Lebert dit Jolycoeur, and Saulnier family. Vincent died at Port-Royal in c1685 in his mid-50s probably around the time that his twelfth child, daughter Élisabeth, was born. His widow Marie, who was 14 years younger than he, stayed on their homestead along haute rivière, now the upper Annapolis River, and did not remarry. She died in September 1730, age 86. '

Family Brault-The Journey
by Lynette Baker Dow

My ancestors are of French origin. The story of their struggle to have a better life for themselves and their children is the basis of this family history. Originally published in Lifelines Volume 12, Number 1-Whole Number 22, 1995.

French Origins
To secure a foothold in the fishing and fur trades the French kings enlisted some of their seaport merchants for assistance. The agreement consisted of a promise to secure a permanent settlement in exchange for a monopoly on the fish trade. Unfortunately, the merchants did not provide the colonists with enough supplies and so forced these stouthearted people to become self sufficient quickly.

The two regions the French found most compelling were the peninsula and land surrounding the territory called Acadia, and the St. Lawrence Valley, known as Canada.

Sigurd de Monts and Samuel de Champlain started the first settlement in...Read MORE...
