Translation

The Acadian Babin Family stems from one man, Antoine Babin, who lived at Port-Royal (Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, Canada).[1] He was born in France around 1626 or 1631[2]. Around 1662 he married Marie Mercier, daughter of an unkown Mercier and Françoise Gaudet. According to the depositions of his descendants, Antoine came to Acadia from France with his wife.[4]

Between around 1663 and 1684, Antoine and Marie had 11 children:

  1. Marie,

  2. 2.0 2.1 Some base his age on the census closest to his birth (1671) where he is listed as 45 years of age; Stephen White bases his age on the 1686 Census where he is listed as 55. In his DGFA (English supplement page cxxxiv), for ages that are inconsistent, White usually takes the most consistent, followed by the one closest to the person's birth, unless the age appears to be a rounding off and easily divisible by 10 or 5. It is not clear to me why he chose the 1686 census age in this instance. Perhaps his wife Marie was rather young in 1671 (25) to have a 9 year old, which would make her 15 when she got pregnant.
