Andrée Savoie , daughter of François Savoie and Catherine Lejeune, was born about 1667, in Port-Royal, Acadie. She was age 4 years on the census of 1671 taken at Port-Royal.[1]
Her parents were married about 1651, (based on birth of first child) in Port Royal[2]
The 1671 Port Royal Census listed her parents (age 50 and 38) and their children: Francoise Savoie, 18; Germain Savoie, 16; Marie Savoie, 14; Jeanne Savoie, 13; Catherine Savoie, 9; Francoise Savoie, 8; Barabe Savoie, 6; Andree Savoie, 4; Marie Savoie, 2; and 4 cattle.[1]
On the 1686 Port Royal Census, she was age 21 and the wife of Jean Prijean. They have one child Marie, age 2, so married at least by 1683-1684[3] Her husband is listed as Jean Brigeau. [4]
The 1698 Port Royal Census lists Jean Prijean, age 47, Andree Savoye, age 31 and their first six children. [5]
When the 1700 Acadian census at Port Royal, Acadia was taken, she was age 33 and the wife of "Jean BRIGEAU", 49. There are only 4 children on the census--where were the other two children Joseph and Madeleine?[6]
The census of 1701 gives names and ages. Andree Savoye and Jean Prejan are ages 52 & 35 and the number of children is seven.[7]
The census of 1703 doesn't name anyone but the heads of household, but the number of children is 7. Jean is back to being called Jean "Prijan". No ages were given.[8]
1714 Acadian Census, at Port-Royal, Acadie. This is the last census we know of that where we find Andrée. The two eldest daughters Marie and Anne were married by 1714.

DNA

Ethnic Origins. Some have speculated that Andree's mother Catherine Lejeune was Amerindian. The Mothers of Acadia maternal DNA project posts its ongoing Maternal DNA results here. To date, the haplogroup of both sisters is consistently reported as U6a7a, indicating European origins. Another group known as Ancestry Out of Acadia DNA PROJECT, posts its results here. They too report that Catherine and Edmee have European haplogroups.
