The purpose of this space is to document the early families that colonized the area around present day Barachois, New Brunswick.

There are three main types of sources one can use to try to identify who were the early inhabitants of this area in south-eastern New Brunswick: 1- catholic church records; 2- land grants; 3- cadastral maps.

The earliest land grant in the immediate area was grant number 435 which distributed 7076 acres of coastland to Michael Casey and 39 others.[1]

Of particular interest to us are the grants to the following persons: Amable Léger and Etienne Léger; Pierre Gaudet; Pierre Boudreau; Jean Boudreau; Charles Gautreau; Charles Boudreau; Laurent Boudreau; Joseph Boudreau; Joseph Boudreau, Sr; Paul Gautreau; Cyprien Gautreau; Joseph Gautreau; Louis Arseneau, Sr; Hilaire Boudreau; Thomas Haché; Jean Gaudet; Joseph Gautreau; Fabien Boudreau.

Two cadastral maps are of particular importance: Map 110 and Map 121. These are available online (April 2021) from the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick.[2][3]
