Biography

Charles Robichaud was born around 1729 in Acadie. His parents were Alexandre Robichaud and Unknown Bourg. [1]

He was first married to Marguerite Blanchard whose parents are unknown. [2]

Around 1756 Charles fled to Camp d'Espérance on the Miramichi, in present-day northeastern New Brunswick, which was established at the end of the summer of 1756 to protect from famine and from the roundups of the British soldiers the 1 376 Acadians who were refugees there. They suffered greatly because of diseases and lack of food at the camp. This pushed them to move further north, in the Baie des Chaleurs area. [1]

In 1760 the family of Charles Robichaud, a total of 7 people, was recorded in Ristigouche. [3]

He married Marie Pitre, daughter of Jean Baptiste dit Jean Marc Pitre and Judith Theriot, on July 28, 1760 in Ristigouche. [2] Sometime in the early 1760s they either surrendered to or were captured by British forces, and were prisoners at Fort Edward in Pisiguit (now Windsor), Colony of Nova Scotia. [4] In 1763, they were on a list of prisoners in Halifax with 4 children whose names were lost to history. [5]
