Anne Richard was born in about 1671 in Port Royal to Michel Richard and Madeleine Blanchard, progenitors of one of the largest Acadian families in North America. Anne and her twin sister, Madeleine, were five weeks old in the census of that year.[1] She was counted again in 1678 at age 8.[2]

Around 1686, Anne married Germain Thériot, son of Claude Thériot and Marie Gautrot.[3] He was 24 and she was only 15. The 1686 census shows that the newlyweds owned 1 gun, 6 arpents of worked land, 6 horned animals, and 8 sheep. No children were listed yet.[4] Seven years later in the 1693 census, Anne and Germain had three sons and were living at Les Mines in the southeastern arm of the Bay of Fundy. [5] They continued to tend their farm and raise their children there for many years as shown in the censuses between 1701 and 1714. [6][7][8][9]

Over the span of 27 years, Anne gave birth to 11 children, seven boys and four girls. Her sixth and ninth children, both unnamed sons, did not live to adulthood. When her last child, son Germain, was born in 1713, Anne was 42 years old.

I have never before seen any reference to this girl having married an "unknown Gaudet".
