Biography

Edmée Lejeune is the ancestral matriarch of the Acadian Gautrot family.

The 1671 Port Royal Census lists Edmee's age as 47, which puts her birth at around 1624. She was the sister of Catherine Lejeune, spouse of François Savoie. [1] It is often written that Pierre Lejeune was their father, but this is not known.

In about 1646, Edmee married Francois Gauterot, widower of Marie whose last name was not known. Between 1645 and 1668, the couple had nine children: Marie, Jean, Renée, Marguerite, François, Claude, Charles, Jeanne and Germain.

Jean owned a lot adjoining the side of the old Fort (which, according to Stephen White[1] was expropriated in 1705 to extend the Fort in Port-Royal). It is not clear how long the family they lived there.

Edmee appears to have died between the 1693 and 1698 census.

Discussion

Ethnic Origins. Some have speculated that Catherine was Amerindian. The Mothers of Acadia maternal DNA project posts its ongoing Maternal DNA results here. To date, the haplogroup of both sisters is consistently reported as U6a7a, indicating European origins.

Location of Birth. Regarding the Lejeune sisters' specific location of birth in France, Stephen remains silent presumably because there are no birth records. In contrast, Massignon[2] argues that a number of familial alliances existed among the first settlers of Acadia PRIOR to their arrival in Acadia, which points to a common French origin. She believes they lived in the Acadian Governor d'Aulnay's seigneury in France near Loudon (comprising of the villages of Angliers, Aulnay, Martaizé and La Chausée). Regarding the Lejeune sisters, Massignon claims that they were allied with the Savoie through Catherine's marriage and the Gauterot through Edmee's marriage.</ref> It is not clear to me that the sisters married prior to their arrival in Acadia. Stephen White claims the Catherine married Savoie in Acadia.[3] Edmee's marriage around 1644 to Gauterot may have taken place in Acadia as he was among the first settlers[4] and was definitely in Acadia prior to 1650[1] (some claim 1636[citation needed]).

Pertaining to Edmée-Aimée (Edmée) Gautrot Briard formerly Lejeune:

I'm thinking that the year of birth of the children may be off. If the 1671 Census shows Marie as 35 years old, I would think she would be born in 1636. But this is great info! Thanks for all the hard work!!
