Biography

Alexandre Leblanc was born 1 July 1732, the son of Joseph LeBlanc and Anne Bourg[1] and was baptized the following day at Saint Charles des Mines, Grand-Pré, Acadia, having as his godparents Alexandre Bougue dit Bellisle, undersigned and Marie Joseph Bourg.[2][3]He married at Port Toulouse, about 1754, to Marguerite Boudrot, daughter of Joseph Boudrot and Marguerite Dugas.

Following the fall of Louisbourg, Alexandre and Marguerite found refuge in the Bay de Chaleurs, where he was captain in the Acadian militia. Taken prisoners in 1761, Alexander, Marguerite and their children were taken to Fort Cumberland, then Halifax. After the Paris Treaty in 1763, the family relocated to at the island Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon in 1767. [4] where they stayed until 1774, when they then joined repatriating Acadians in establishing a new settlement on the north side of Isle Madame.

On March 8, 1786, Alexandre LaBlanc was one of the seventy Acadien heads of families, the founders of Arichat Parish , that thanked the lieutenant governor of Cape Breton, J.F.W. DesBarres, "for the promise of land concessions, the permission to construct a church and school, and the request for tax exemptions."[5]
