Pierre Robichaud (dit Cadet) was born 25 April 1707 in Port Royal, Acadia, Nova Scotia. He was baptised the next day. His godparents were Pierre Landry (fils) and Marguerite Bourg (widow Naquin dit L'Ètoile).
Pierre married Susanne Brassaud, daughter of Pierre Brassaud and Gabrielle Forest, about 1730 in Acadia. In 1750, they left Cobeguit (Nova Scotia), to move to île Saint-Jean (present-day Prince Edward Island). When the deportation of the Acadians began in île Saint-Jean in the fall of 1758, Pierre Robichaud and family fled and took refuge in French-controlled territory in northern New Brunswick. Pierre Robichaud and his sons, Pierre and Oliver were eventually captured by the British and arrived at Fort Edward in Windsor, Nova Scotia, on June 14, 1762.
