Biography

Jérôme Darois, born in Paris in c1670, arrived in Acadia by 1698, the year he married Marie, daughter of Dominique Gareau and Marie Gaudet at Port-Royal. They moved to the Minas Basin. In 1706, during Queen Anne's War, the British held Jérôme as a prisoner in Boston, Massachusetts. After the war, he returned to his home at Minas. The couple and their children moved to Petitcoudiac, probably to put even more distance between themselves and the British authorities at Annapolis Royal. Jérôme and Marie had 10 children, half of them sons. Their five daughters married into the Trahan, Breau, Gaudet, Saulnier, and Pitre families. Jérôme, père died at Petitcoudiac in c1750, age 80.
