Claire Dugas, the daughter of Joseph Dugas (c1680) and Claire Bourg (c1682), was born in 1706 at Cobeguit, Acadie.[1] She married Jean Hebert, son of Jean Hebert (c1681) and Marie-Marguerite Landry (c1682), in 1730 at Beaubassin, Acadie.[2]

In the census of 1752 she was a widow, the family residing at l'Ascension Grande, Île Royale, Acadie:

Claire Dugast, widow of the late Jean Hébert, aged 46 years, she has been in the country one year. She has two sons and six daughters: Pierre Hébert, aged 17 years; Jean, aged 12 years; Françoise, aged 21 years; Elisabeth, aged 19 years; Anne, aged 15 years; Hélène, age 10 years; Marie Joseph, aged 8 years; Victoire, aged 5 years. And in stock they have three oxen, one cow, one bull, three wethers, two sows and two pigs.[3]

Based on the date and location of her death, she was exiled to France from Île Saint-Jean in 1758.

Claire Dugas died on February 13, 1759 at l'Hôtel-Dieu in Saint-Malo, Bretagne, France. She was buried in the Saint-Malo cemetery the next day[4][5].
