Marguerite Pitre was born around 1700 in Port Royal, Acadie, Nouvelle-France, daughter of Claude Pitre and Marie Anne Comeau. [1]

She was listed as Marie on the 1701 census in Port-Royal, age 1. (Parents listed as Jean and Anne) [2][1]

Marguerite (21) married Jean Aucoin (21) (born in Riviere Aux Canards, Acadie; son of Martin Aucoin and Marie Gaudet) about 1722 in Acadie. [1]

Their children were:

  1. Marie Aucoin (1723–1756)
  2. Isabelle Aucoin (1725– )
  3. Anne Aucoin (1727– )
  4. Joseph Aucoin (1730–1833)
  5. Pierre Aucoin (1733–1827)
  6. Marguerite Aucoin (~1740–<1794)
  7. Simon Aucoin

On 5 September 1755, Jean was imprisoned along with hundreds of other Acadian men at the St. Charles des Mines church in Grand-Pré. On a list of prisoners, he was said to live in the village des Aucoin (Rivière-aux-Canards) with 2 sons and 2 daughters (spouses were not included on the list), and owned 4 bullocks, 4 cows, 5 young cattle, 28 sheep, 18 hogs, and 3 horses. His property and livestock became forfeit to the crown, and his family was required to prepare for deportation within 30 days. [3][4]

On 27 October 1755, Jean and Marguerite and their children were deported to Virginia aboard one of the 14 ships that departed on that day. In May 1756, on the Virginia Packet carrying 289 Acadians, they were deported again, from Virginia to Bristol, England where they disembarked on 19 June 1756. [4] [5]

Jean and Marguerite died between September 1755 and the end of September 1756. [6]

Research Notes

Note: SISTER: A half-sister was born around 1711, also called Marie-Marguerite. This child called just Marguerite in White's DICTIONNAIRIE.

Note: French women generally kept their given surname upon marriage during this period of time. Their children kept their father's surname. [7][8]

Note: One reference lists additional children. Confirmation is recommended. " Children of Jean Aucoin and Marguerite Pitre are: i. Marie Aucoin, born November 9, 1723. ii. Isabelle Aucoin, born July 21, 1725. iii. Anne Aucoin, born October 6, 1727. iv. Pierre Aucoin, born 1736; died 1827; married (1) Felicité LeBlanc 1762 in Cobequid, NS; married (2) Marie Doucet Abt. 1782. v. Joseph Aucoin, born Abt. 1730; died February 18, 1833; married Marie Hébert Abt. 1762." [9]
