Étienne Pellerin was born around 1647, based on his age in the censuses,[1] possibly in France. Genealogist Stephen White does not give a location for his birth. [2] There is no documented proof of the names of his parents. According to Acadian genealogist Bona Arsenault, Étienne was born in 1646 in France and was François Pellerin’s younger brother (Stephen A. White disagrees).[3]

Étienne married Jeanne Savoie, daughter of François Savoie and Catherine Lejeune about 1675,[2] probably in Port-Royal since they appear in the 1678 census of Port-Royal with their two daughters age 2 and 6 months. [4] They own 1 arpent of land, and 4 head of cattle. Between about 1676 and 1699 they had ten children: Madeleine, Marie, Pierre, Anne, Jean-Baptiste, Jeanne, Charles (dit Toc), Bernard, Alexandre, Marguerite.

Their growing family was counted in Port-Royal again in 1686 [5], 1693 [6], 1698 [7], 1700 [8] and 1701[9]

“ At one time Étienne owned Hog Island (Île aux Cochons) on Rivière au Dauphin, now the Annapolis River, near Port-Royal. In August 1714, soon after the British took over the colony, Étienne was among the Acadians who traveled to Île Royale, today's Cape Breton Island, aboard the King's vessel La Marie Joseph to look at land with the possibility of removing to the French territory. Evidently he did not like what he saw on Île Royale and returned to Annapolis Royal, enduring British rule there.” [3] [2]

Étienne passed away in Port Royal, Acadia in Nov 1722. The burial record mentions that he was about 80 years old and he died (date omitted) after having suffered for 18 months due to an illness. He was interred on 17 November 1722.[10][11]
