Catherine Hebert was born around 1656. Her parents were Antoine Hebert and Genevieve Lefranc[1] and it is unclear when they arrived in Acadia prior to the 1671 Census at Port Royal.[2]

Around 1673 Catherine married Jacques LeBlanc, son of Daniel LeBlanc and Francoise Gaudet. Between about 1674 and 1690, they had 13 children.[1]

By 1678 they were living with her parents in Port Royal along with their young son. Catherine was about 18 when he was born. [3]

Less than a decade later Jacques and Catherine have a busy household with 9 children, including a newborn baby and a large number of animals. Her parents live next door. Jacques' own parents are another door away.[4]

Move from Port Royal to Minas Basin By 1693 Jacques and Catherine have moved to Minas, by then a village just a little smaller than Port Royal. Catherine's brother Jean also moved and was just two plots away.[5] All of their 11 children are born and ten still living at home, with Ignace just a toddler.

They are not found in the 1698 or 1700 Censuses but resurface in a nearby (new? or renamed?) location in 1701, now living in Riviere St. Antoine, Les Mines[6] Three of his sons are identified as able to bear arms. In 1703[7] and 1707[8] they were enumerated at Les Mines. Although Jacques and Catherine are listed in Port Royal in 1714, there is no breakout for the Mines areas, so we don't know if they are in the same house. Seven children are living with them.[9]

Thank you for noticing Nina! I checked the death records and the date in 1731 referred to a Cecile LeBlanc married to Michel Boudrot so obviously incorrect. The location of death at St Charles des Mines is referenced in SW DGFA citing the Belle Ile sur Mer depositions of descendants. I checked Port Royal burial records and found none for Catherine Hebert or LeBlanc. So will leave blank until we find an actual record to support a date.
