François Fardet was from a place referred to as Rui within the bishopric of Vannes, Bretagne (today Morbihan), France. [1]

Note: the place name transcribed as "Rui" is likely referring to Rhuys, which is a peninsula just south of Vannes.

François arrived in Acadie in about 1717. [1]

François married Marie Marguerite Pitre in Acadie around 1745. [2] and together they had four children:

  1. Francois b1746
  2. Marianne b1748
  3. Marie b1752
  4. Angelique b1756

The family was found in the Laroque census of 1752. [1] [3]

After they were deported to France in 1758.[2] The first ships to carry Acadians to St. Malo were from St. Jean and Ile Royale in 1758, and they were on the Queen of Spain, arriving in St. Malo November 17, 1758. Unfortunately, after the deportation, all of the children and mother died shortly after arriving in St. Malo.[4]
