Jean Baptiste Gaudet was born around 1702 in Acadie. He was the son of Jean Gaudet and Elisabeth Bourg. [1]

He married Marie Josèphe Darois, daughter of Jérôme Darois and Marie Gareau, around 1727. [1]

In 1751 at the time of his daughter Marie Rose's marriage, there were noted as living in Grande Anse.[2]

The couple was recorded with six children in the 1752 La Roque census at Anse du Nord-Ouest where they had settled two years earlier. Jean-Baptiste, in the census, was described as being always ill and poor.[3]

Marie Josèphe died the following year.

In 1758 the family was deported to France with thousands of Acadian residents of the Island. Jean-Baptiste and his sons Joseph Ignace and Paul Marie were on the list of arrivals at Saint-Malo on 1 November 1758.[4] [1] Jean-Baptiste died at the hospital in Saint-Malo on the day of arrival at the age of 57 and was interred the next day. [5][1]

Paul Marie died at the end of November 1758.
