Biography

NOTICE: this profile is protected by the Acadian Project because of confusion with sister. Please contact the Acadian Project before making any substantive changes. Thanks for helping make WikiTree the best site for accurate information.

Note: easily confused with her sisters Marie and Madeleine. She is called Marguerite and Marie in existing records. Stephen White lists her first of the children born to René dit l'Aîné Landry and Perrine Bourg.


Marie Marguerite Landry, daughter of Rene dit l'Aîné Landry and Perrine Bourg, was born about 1646.[1] (Census birth dates were 1647, 1651, 1649, 1649)
Germain (born 1641)[2] and Marie were married about 1664 in Port-Royal, Acadia. Between about 1665 and 1685, the couple had nine children:
Children All born in Port-Royal, Acadie
  1. Charles DOUCET b: Abt 1665
  2. Bernard (dit LAVERDURE) DOUCET b: Abt 1667
  3. Laurent DOUCET b: Abt 1669
  4. Jacques DOUCET b: Abt 1671
  5. Claude (dit Maitrejean) DOUCET b: Abt 1674
  6. Marie DOUCET b: Abt 1678
  7. Jeanne DOUCET b: Abt 1680
  8. Alexis DOUCET b: Abt 1682
  9. Pierre DOUCET b: Abt 1685
Five of her seven sons, all born at Port-Royal, created families of their own. Most of Marie's sons remained at Port-Royal, at least until Le Grand Dérangement.
Germain, a ploughman (laboureur) age 30, and Marie 24, were listed with their 3 sons in the first census of Port-Royal in 1671. They owned 11 head of cattle and 7 sheep.[3]
The subsequent censuses of Port-Royal of 1686[4] and 1693[5] show how the household of Germain Doucet in Port-Royal and the family’s possessions varied with time.
Germain died before the census of 1698 at Port-Royal when Marie had already remarried to Etienne Comeau. [6] In the 1700 census Marie appears as the widow of Germain Doucet but is not listed as Étienne Comeau’s wife. [7] She is listed again in 1701, this time with Etienne. [8]
Marie passed away in Port-Royal according to the depositions of Belle-île-en-Mer [9] The exact date of death is not known. We know that she lived until at least 1701 since she was on the census. Certain family trees list the following dates for the date of death 26 Oct 1717 or 26 Oct 1719 but no records have been found to support this claim.

Hi Connie, there is another Marie who married Laurent Granger. (Landry-129) They were apparently sisters. See note in biography about confusion between the sisters.

I have a birth date of 1648 in Port Royal, and she died on 04 NOVEMBER 1719 • Port Royal, Acadia, (Annapolis, Nova Scotia), Canada. She is my 9th times great grandmother. I have a family CD of records that go back to this time period. She married Laurent Granger when she was 17 in 1667. Laurent had to convert to Catholicism to be able to marry her.

Landry-18 and Landry-805 appear to represent the same person because: Unconnected profile without a source and no information should be merged away.

I added some sources and attached her to her father. I left the date of death but no source is given so marked uncertain. If there is a source for her death date, please add it. Thanks!

It would seem that this Marie Marguerite Landry actually had a 2nd husband, Étienne Comeau (who, himself, had been widowed), according to the sources cited in http://mwlandry.ca/genealog/getperson.php?personID=I13&tree=05 and in http://mwlandry.ca/genealog/getperson.php?personID=I11&tree=05

Ok, this was my first time trying the restore tool, and it doesn't yet undo merges. Anyone have good sources to help fix this?

Oops, looks like I'm the one who completed the merge. Let me try to undo that.

Somebody has evidently confused two women named Marie Landry, one of whom was married to Granger & the other to Germain Doucet Jr. Both households appear in the 1671 census. Lots of repair work needed for both Landry-18 & Granger-39.
