Habitation of Hebert family in River Hebert Nova Scotia

+2 votes
I am researching where the Francois Hebert would have had their homestead in River Hebert before 1750 when the British soldiers evacuated the village in preparation of the 1755 dispersion

Looking for any references or resources that could enlighten my research.

Perhaps this might lead you to what you are looking for?  http://westhantshistoricalsociety.ca/history-of-the-name-of-the-herbert-river/

You might have to read everything you can on the history of the area to see if there is a mention of it.

I read this manuscript a while back but to do avail as the lead or reference was the  village was at the mouth of the river so I take it must be Minoudie.

Then you must be out of luck as he talks about the oldest maps of the area and where to get or see them and that is all there is.

You might find some answers in this book by Paul Surette: "Atlas of the Acadian Settlement of the Beaubassin 1660 to 1775: Mesagoueche and LaButte."

Nothing there as it does show the location of the houses

Hi Leo,

Library and Archives Canada has resources for genealogy. This page is a good place to start:


You should collaborate with the Acadians project, if you have not already.

Good luck with your research!
