Biography

Marie Marguerite Pitre was born about 1711, the first child of Claude Jean Pitre and Anne Henry, his second wife. [1]

She married Francois Fardet in Acadie[1] and together they had four children:

  1. Francois 1746
  2. Marianne 1748
  3. Marie 1752
  4. Angelique 1756

The family was found in the Laroque census of 1752[2]

After she was deported to France, she died in St. Malo in 1758.[1] The first ships to carry Acadians to St. Malo were from St. Jean and Ile Royale in 1758, and they were on the Queen of Spain, arriving in St. Malo November 17, 1758. Unfortunately, after the deportation, all of the children and mother died shortly after arriving in St. Malo.[3]

Research Note

This was an unconnected profile and not a child of the original parents. Repurposed her to a profile needed for the child of Claude Pitre.

If she was born in Port Royal as all the other children, where is her baptismal record?

No child born in Port La Joye (anom) in 1756 or 1757. 1748 and 1746 are missing. Haven't checked 1752.

No one has come forward to justify these parents so I am removing Marc Pitre-12 & Jeanne-Brun-1 as her parents. She can be re-added when a plausible birth date is found and proof is provided. Thanks!

Need a source for her being a child of this couple. She is not on the census of 1708 and Claude was born May 1700.
  • Family on Cape Sable in 1708, Claude was 7
