Marie Gaudet is the ancestral matriarch of the Acadian Daigre/Daigle family.

Marie was born around 1650 to parents Denis Gaudet and Martine Gauthier. [1]

Around 1666 Marie married Olivier Daigre. Between about 1667 and 1681, she gave birth to 10 children: Jean, Jacques, Bernard, Unknown girl, Louis, Olivier, Jean, Marie, Anne, and Pierre.[1]

Marie and Olivier were enumerated in 1671 at Port-Royal with their three young sons. They owned 6 head of cattle and 6 sheep, but no cultivable land was listed.[2]

In the 1678 census their homestead was near Port-Royal was at St-Christophe, at the Ste-Marie Brook[3], possibly the same as son Olivier's 1707 locale on the south bank of the river across from Bridgetown.

Olivier died in his late thirties or early forties after 1681 when his last child was born and before 1686. Marie remarried around 1685 with Jean Fardel. They appeared in the 1685 census of Port-Royal with seven Daigle children in the household.[4]

Marie died on May 2 1734 at Annapolis Royal (formerly Port-Royal), and was buried the next day. She was about 88 years of age.[5]

DNA. Marie Gaudet's mother was Martine Gauthier. The Mothers of Acadia Maternal DNA project is conducting ongoing research to verify their origins. In 2010, Stephen White reported that Martine Gauthier had a J1b1 haplogroup. I don't know the details re how many of her descendants were tested to support this report. Lucie Leblanc Constantino describes one maternal tree here. Ongoing test results are also reported here. As of May 2014, 2 of 2 descendants have reported a J haplogroup, indicating European origins.
