Jeanne Bourg was born about 1659 in Acadie. She is the 12-year-old daughter of Antoine Bourg and Antoinette Landry on the 1671 Acadian Census, at Port-Royal, Acadie, [1][2] although there is another sister, also called Jeanne who was born around 1653. That sister married Jean Belliveau.[2]

Around 1677 Jeanne married Pierre Comeau dit l'Esturgeon, son of Pierre Comeau and Rose Bayon. Their first child was born fairly quickly as she was age 1 in the 1678 census.[3]. Their family expanded quickly with 6 children by 1686, although the census says she was just 22, Jeanne's real age would have been closer to 27.[4]. More children arrived in rapid sequence, including twins Catherine and Elisabeth who were born in 1692[5]. In 1800 the twins were incorrectly identified in the transcription as triplets, Francoise having been born a year later according to other records.[6][2]. Some additional children (not theirs/incorrect names?) are present in 1701, again not supported by other research.[7][2]

Altogether, the couple had 18 children: Marie, Abraham, Marguerite, Anne, Marie-Jeanne, Joseph (dit GrandJean), Madeleine, Pierre, Angélique, Élisabeth (Isabelle) (twin), Catherine (twin), Françoise, Cécile, Jean, François, Maurice, Ambroise, and Jacques. [2]

The censuses of the times in which they lived indicates that Pierre and Jeanne raised the family at Port-Royal in Acadie (now Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, Canada). Their farm was located east of the fort on the south shore of the Dauphin (Annapolis) River.

Jeanne died before February 22, 1724, in Acadia.[2]

DNA. Jeanne Bourg's mother was Antonette Landry. The Mothers of Acadia Maternal DNA project is conducting ongoing research to verify their origins. In 2010, Stephen White reported Antoinette Landry had an H haplogroup. Lucie Leblanc Constantino reported results here. Ongoing test results are also reported here.
