Biography
BOURGEOIS, JACQUES (Jacob), surgeon, colonizer, founder of Beaubassin; b. sometime between 1618 and 1621 in France, probably at Couperans-en-Brie (department of Seine-et-Marne); d. 1701 at Port-Royal (Annapolis Royal, N.S.); founder of the Bourgeois family in Acadia.

Before leaving France, Bourgeois had entered the medical profession. He came to Port-Royal in 1642 with 18 families that Governor Menou* d’Aulnay brought with him on one of his voyages. Bourgeois’ father, also named Jacques, was an army officer at Port-Royal and was the brother-in-law of Germain Doucet, Sieur de La Verdure, Aulnay’s assistant. In 1654 Sedgwick* seized Port-Royal, and as by the terms of the capitulation soldiers were to be repatriated, Jacques Bourgeois senior returned to France; his son remained in Acadia, where he became the ancestor of a large number of descendants. In 1643 Bourgeois had married Jeanne, Guillaume Trahan’s daughter, who was born in France in 1631; they had ten children, seven girls...Read MORE...

Biography
'When the English seized Acadia in 1654, four years after d'Aulnay's death, Robert Sedgwick, leader of the English expedition, held Jacques Bourgeois as 'hostage' to insure that Doucet, in command at Port-Royal, would fulfill the terms of surrender. Cormier says that Jacques was repatriated to France along with other French officers and never returned to Acadia. It was Jacques's son, Jacques dit Jacob, not Jacques, père the soldier, who was the progenitor of the family in Acadia.

Jacques dit Jacob, born probably at Couperans-en-Brie, France, between 1618 and 1621, was a young surgeon recruited by Claude de Razilly, brother of Isaac, after the French re-established control of Acadia in 1630s. Bourgeois came to Acadia in 1641 aboard the St.-Francois and was one of the earliest settlers in the colony. He married Jeanne, daughter of Guillaume Trahan, at Port-Royal in c1643. She had come to Acadia even earlier than he did, in 1636 aboard the St.-Jehan, with her father, mother,...Read MORE...
