Jacques Girouard was born about 1648 in Port-Royal, Acadie, Nouvelle-France, son of François Girouard (abt. 1621–abt. 1693) and Jeanne Aucoin (abt. 1630–1718).[1][2]

Jacques (21) married Marguerite Gautrot (15) (born about 1654 in Port-Royal; daughter of François Gautrot and Edmée Lejeune) in 1670 in Port-Royal. Their known children, presumably all born in Port-Royal, were:

  1. Alexandre Girouard (abt. 1671–1744) .
  2. Pierre Girouard (abt. 1673– ) .
  3. Jacques Girouard (abt. 1674–1741) .
  4. Jean Girouard (1676– ) .
  5. Marie Girouard (abt. 1678–aft. 1742) .
  6. François Girouard (abt. 1680–abt. 1750) .
  7. Marguerite Girouard (abt. 1682–aft. 1722) .
  8. Claude Girouard (1683–1738) .
  9. Guillaume Girouard (1685–1757) .
  10. Denis Girouard (abt. 1688–1709) .
  11. Charles Girouard (abt. 1689– ) .
  12. Germain Girouard (abt. 1691–1760) .
  13. Marie Madeleine Girouard (1695–1752) .
  14. Anne Marie Girouard (abt. 1698–1709)

Jacques and Marguerite were counted in the first Acadian census of 1671 with their newborn son Alexandre, in Port-Royal. They owned 7 cattle and 3 sheep, but no land was listed. Jacques dit Jacob was also enumerated in his parents' household.[3]

In 1686, at Port Royal, Jacques GIROUARD, aged 38, was living with his wife, Marguerite GOTRO [sic], aged 32, and their nine children: Alexandre, aged 16, Pierre, aged 14, Jacques, aged 12, Jean, aged 10, Marie, aged 8, Francois, aged 6, Marguerite, aged 4, Claude, aged 3, and Guillaume, aged 3 months. They lived on 6 arpents of cultivable land with 13 cattle and 15 sheep.[4]

Their growing family continued to be listed in subsequent censuses at Port-Royal between 1693 and 1701 and seemed to be doing well with an impressive number of farm animals and acres of cultivable land. [5][6][7][8]

By 1698, they owned 20 cattle, 30 sheep, 12 hogs, 48 arpents of land, 18 fruit trees and 1 gun. There were 12 children in their household, from 6 months to 24 years of age.[6]

Jacques passed away on 27 October 1703 at about 55 years of age and was buried the next day in Port-Royal, leaving 49-year-old Marguerite with 8 children still living at home.[9]

Biographie

"François épousa vers 1647 Jeanne Aucoin, de qui il eut cinq enfants, dont Jacques (ou Jacob), né vers 1648. Ce dernier épousa, peu avant le recensement de 1671, Marguerite Gautrot, fille de François Gautrot et d'Edmée Lejeune. Nous comptons au moins quatorze enfants dans la famille de Jacques et de Marguerite."[10]
