Biography
'Guillaume, son of Nicolas Trahan and Renée Desloges of St.-Pierre, Montreuil-Bellay, Anjou, France, born in c1601, was an edge-tool maker living in nearby Bourgueil when he came to Acadia aboard the St.-Jehan in 1636 with his wife Francoise Corbineau, two young daughters, and a valet--among the first French families to settle in Acadia. Guillaume and Francoise had been married at St.-Étienne, Chinon, Touraine, France, in July 1627. Their daughters were Jeanne, born in c1629 probably at Chinon, and a girl whose name has been lost to history, born perhaps at Bourgueil; Jeanne married Jacques dit Jacob Bourgeois at Port-Royal in c1643, and the younger daughter married widower Germain Doucet dit La Verdure at Port-Royal in c1654, both important early settlers. The edge-tool maker himself became a shaker and a mover in the Port-Royal community. In July 1640, Guillaume testified in an inquiry against former governor Charles de La Tour with future son-in-law Germain Doucet dit La Verdure....Read MORE...
