Biography
Michel Boudrot (Boudreau) arrived in Acadia before September 21, 1639, when he is mentioned as being one of the first syndic (official law officer) in Port Royal. Although listed as a farmer in the census of 1671, we find him mentioned as the Lieutenant Gouverneur civil et criminel (magistrate) in the 1686 census. He gives up this position to Mathieu de Goutinon August 20, 1688 following a King's ruling dated March 30, 1687 stating that Michel Boudreau was too old to perform his duties. He would have been around 87 years old. Michel Boudreau passed away sometime between 1688 and the census of 1693, where his wife, Michelle Aucoin, was listed as a widow.
Around 1641, Michel Boudreau had married Michelle Aucoin (Sister of Jeanne Aucoin married to François Girouard). Michelle is believed to have arrived in Acadia the previous year, when she was 22.

Biography
'Michel Boudrot, born probably at Cougnes, near La Rochelle, France, in c1600, came to Port-Royal in the early 1640s with his young wife Michelle Aucoin, whom he had married in c1641. Michelle was sister of Jeanne Aucoin, wife of fellow colonist Francois Girouard. Michel Boudrot served as one of the first syndics (similar to a present-day mayor) of Port-Royal. In 1684, he was serving as lieutenant général civil et criminel du Port-Royal, or general representative of the King in civil and criminal matters at the colony's capital. In August 1688, he gave up his post as lieutenant général because of his 'great age'; he was 88. He died not long afterwards. His wife Michelle, two decades his junior, lived until December 1706, when she died at Port-Royal, age 85. Michel and Michelle raised 11 children. Their four daughters married into the Robichaud, Thériot, Bourg, Babineau, and Poirier families. Their seven sons, all born at Port-Royal, created families of their own, but not all...Read MORE...
