Jeanne Thériot is the ancestral matriarch of the Acadian Thibodeau family.

Jeanne was born about 1643 to parents Jean Thériot (abt.1601-bef.1686) and Perrine Rau (1611-aft.1671).[1] The family arrived in Acadia before 1650, but it is not clear where Jeanne was born.

Around 1660 Jeanne married Pierre Thibodeau (abt.1631-1704),[1] in Port Royal Acadia[2] (Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, Canada). Pierre was a founder of Chipoudy[3]

Between 1661 and 1689, the couple had 16 children: [1]

  1. Marie Thibodeau
  2. Marie Thibodeau
  3. Marie Thibodeaux
  4. Anne-Marie Thibodeau
  5. Marie-Catherine Thibodeau
  6. Pierre Thibodeau
  7. Jeanne Thibodeau
  8. Jean Thibodeau
  9. Antoine Thibodeau
  10. Pierre Thibodeau

  12. Michel Thibodeau
  13. Anne-Marie Thibodeau
  14. Claude Thibodeau
  15. Catherine Josephe Thibodeau
  16. Charles Thibodeau

Pierre and Jeanne’s land holdings and possessions varied greatly through the years as shown in the Port-Royal censuses of 1671,[4] 1678,[5] 1686,[6] 1693,[7] 1698,[8] 1700,[9] and 1701.[10]. The family was still together in 1703.[11]

At the time of Pierre's death in 1704[1], the family was living at Pré Rond Marsh [12] on the south bank of the Annapolis (Dauphin) River east of the fort.

In the 1714 census of Port-Royal, Jeanne is listed as the widow Thibodeau and living with her son (not named). [13]

Jeanne died at Port-Royal on 7 December 1726, aged 87 years and was buried there the next day.[14][15]Find A Grave, database and images December 2019), memorial page for Jeanne Terriau Thibodeau (1643–8 Dec 1726), Find A Grave Memorial no. 54724572, ; Maintained by Yvonne Roger Arabie (contributor 46487787) Unknown.
