Biography

Jeanne Brun was born about 1676.[1] She was the the eldest child of Sébastien Brun and Huguette Bourg.

She is listed in the 1678 census of Port-Royal at age 2. [2] She is also recorded in the censuses of Port-Royal at age 9 [3], age 16 [4], and age 22.[5]

She married Marc Pitre about 1699 in Port Royal. [1]

In the 1701 census of Port-Royal the newly married couple is listed with their son Claude, age 1.[6] It's certainly possible that they had more than four surviving children, but at this point only the four listed have been traced back to this couple.

They seemed to have settled initially in Port Royal, where two sons were born. Port Royal was again attacked in 1704 so that may have prompted the move south to Cap Sable, as there are no other children of theirs in the Port Royal baptism registers and they next appeared in the 1708[7] census for Cap Sable. In the 1714 census of Acadia that lay within English control, the couple was listed with two sons and two daughters.[8] This accounts for the four traceable offspring.
