In 1686, at Port Royal, Jeanne, age 1 month (an unnamed girl in the 1686 census), was living with her parents, Jean PITRE, aged 61 [sic], and Marie PESELET [sic], aged 45, and her six siblings: Claude, aged 16, Mare [sic], aged 12, Pierre, aged 9, Jean, aged 6, Francois, aged 4, and an unnamed girl, aged 2. By this time, her two oldest sisters had married and were settled nearby with their husbands.[2]

  2. Tim Hebert; Transcription of the 1686 Acadian Census, at Port-Royal, Acadie 1686 Census Transcribed. The original census can be found at Acadian Census microfilm C-2572 of the National Archives of Canada “Acadie Recensements 1671 – 1752,” Images 15-60;
    at Port Royal: Jean PITRE 61, Marie PESELET 45; children: Claude 16, Mare 12, Pierre 9, Jean 6, Francois 4, one girl 2, one girl 1 month. In the original 1686 Census, Pesseley was listed as Peselet, and Marc was listed correctly but transcribed as Mare. White recorded it as Marc. Also, 1 month in French is 1 mois not 0.1 mois as is recorded in the original census. 0.1 mois would be about 3 days. It is reasonable to believe that 1 month is correct and the original census should have read 1 mois not 0.1 mois. White records it as 1 mois.
