Claude was born around 1637.[1] His age was given as 34 in the 1671 Port Royal Census.[2] He was the eldest child of Jean Thériot and Perrine Rau. His location of birth is uncertain. The Theriot family arrived in Acadie before 1650, prior to the death of Acadian Governor d'Aulnay in that year. Claude, although 13 years old at the time of his death, attested to d'Aulnay's accomplishments in a letter dated 5 October 1687. [1]

Around 1661[3] Claude married Marie Gautrot, daughter of François and Edmée Lejeune, at Port Royal quite possibly, according to the declarations of their descendants at Belle-Isle-en-Mer. [4] [1] Between about 1662 and 1693, the couple had 14 children: Germain, Marie (b.1665), Marguerite (b. 1667), Jean, Anne, Jeanne, Claude, Marie, Madeleine, Pierre, Elisabeth, Joseph, Marie (b. c1691), and Marguerite (b.c1693). [1]

In 1678, there were 3 boys and 4 girls in the family home at Port-Royal as shown in the census. Claude and Marie owned 5 head of cattle and 3 arpents of land.[5]

In 1686, forty-nine-year old Claude and forty-year-old Marie owned 13 arpents of land, 8 head of cattle, 6 sheep and 1 gun. Seven children between the ages of 1 and 18 were counted in the household.[6] Their land holdings as well as their family continued to grow as shown in the subsequent censuses between 1693 and 1703.[7] [8] [9] [10] [11]

By 1707, all the children had left the home. Claude, 70 years of age and Marie, then 62, were listed in the census as living alone, without any land holdings or farm animals.[12] Their situation was the same in 1714. [13]

Claude passed away and was buried at Annapolis Royal (formerly Port Royal) on September 17 1725 at 87 years of age.[14][15] Marie died 7 years later at the age of about 87.

Thériot-73 and Terriot-102 appear to represent the same person because: Claude Terriot is in my family tree and Marie Gauterot is listed as his wife. This record was taken from the St Boniface Historical Society record while going a genealogy search for my family tree. Death date record are also identical and I propose we merge
