Rene LEBLANC, son of RENE, and grandson of
Daniel, was appointed a royal notary at Minas (Les Mines) He married ELISABETH (Isabelle) MELANSON on July 30, 1709. She was the widow of ALAIN BUJOLD, and daughter of PIERRE MELANSON and MARGUERITE MIUS d'ENTREMONT. He married, for a second time at Port-Royal, November 26, 1720, MARGUERITE THEBEAU, daughter of PIERRE THEBEAU and JEANNE COMEAU. By these two wives he had twenty children.
A petition addressed by the Acadians at Philadelphia directly to King George reveals what became of the notary RENE LEBLANC in the Deportation: "An even those amongst us who had suffered deeply from Your Majesty's enemies, on account of their attachment to Your Majesty's Government, were equally involved in the common calamity of which Rene LeBlanc, the Notary Public(...) is a remarkable instance. He was seized, confined, and brought away among the rest of the people, and his family, consisting of twenty children, and about one hundred and fifty grandchildren, were scattered in different colonies, so that he was put on shore at New York, with only his wife and two youngest children, in an infirm state of health, from whence he joined three more of his children at Philadelphia, where he died without any more notice being taken of him than any of us, notwithstanding his many years' labor and deep sufferings for Your majesty's service."
JEAN-SIMON LEBLANC, married to JEANNE DUPUIS, and his family's odyssey is well described in the Parkman Diaries on another page of this web site. JEAN-SIMON LEBLANC's parents were PIERRE LEBLANC (son of DANIEL) and MADELEINE BOURQUE. JEANNE DUPUIS's parents were JEAN DUPUIS and ANNE RICHARD.
In 1755, MARIE LEBLANC (daughter of PIERRE LEBLANC and MADELEINE BOURG/BOURQUE,Pierre's second wife)(PIERRE LEBLANC was the son of DANIEL LEBLANC) and her family were exiled to Massachusetts. They were sent to Amesbury where they were in the spring of 1756. Her husband CLAUDE BOURGEOIS died after 1760. His widow, after an exile of nearly 19 years, arrived with many of her children, at Saint-Jacques de l'Achigan, Quebec, during the summer of 1774, and she died there January 24, 1781.
PAUL LEBLANC, his wife MARIE-JOSEPHE RICHARD and their children were also carried to Massachusetts. PAUL DIT POLET LEBLANC was the son of PIERRE and MADELEINE BOURQUE mentioned above. In 1763, with many other Acadians (called French Neutrals by the British) he was listed as desiring to go to old France. In 1767, this family with its younger children reached Quebec City, and about 1770, they established themselves at Nicolet, Quebec, where MARIE-JOSEPHE RICHARD was buried June 2, 1795. Three of the oldest sons of PAUL LEBLANC's family, viz., Joseph (1733-1819), Charles (1834-1814), and Bonaventure (1738-1826), after being eight years in Beausejour and Pisiquid, were among the pioneers of the resettlement of Memramcook, New Brunswick.
CHARLES LEBLANC, his wife MADELEINE GIROUARD, and his family escaped deportation and fled towards Miramichi, New Brunswick. In the 1763 census of annapolis, CHARLES Leblanc's name heads the list of Acadians. With him were his wife and six children. He was still there in 1768 and in 1770. At about the latter date he went, with two of his married children, to nearby St. Mary's Bay (Baie Ste-Marie), to settle at Saint-Bernard, in the county of Digby, "LAnse de LeBlanc" (Leblanc Cove), or simply "L'Anse des Blancs" (White Cove). This is where he died, September 30, 1805, at the age of 89. His wife had been buried June 8 of the same year, less than four months before. He was known there as "Chat" (pronounced Sha) probably from the three first letters of his name. Charles LeBlanc was the great-great-grandfather of the first Acadian Bishop, Msgr. EDOUARD LEBLANC, Bishop of St. John, New Brunswick, from 1912 to 1935. CHARLES LEBLANC was the son of PIERRE LEBLANC and MADELEINE BOURQUE. MADELEINE GIROUARD'S parents were FRANCOIS GIROUARD and ANNE BOURGEOIS.
FRANCOISE LEBLANC and her family were exiled to England in 1755, then to Belle-Isle-en-Mer, France, where we find them all in 1765, except her husband CHARLES GRANGER who was already dead.
FRANCOISE LEBLANC was the daughter of JEAN LEBLANC and MARGUERITE RICHARD. JEAN was the son of JACQUES LEBLANC and CATHERINE HEBERT. JACQUES was the son of DANIEL. CHARLES GRANGER'S parents were PIERRE GRANGER and ISABELLE GUILBEAU. PIERRE's parents were LAURENT GRANGER and MARIE LANDRY.

FRANCOIS was the son of ANDRE LEBLANC and MARIE DUGAS. ANDRE was the son of DANIEL LEBLANC and FRANCOISE GAUDET. FRANCOIS LEBLANC's first wife was CECILE BOUDROT. MARIE-JOSEPHE LABAUVE's parents were RENE LABAUVE and ANNE LEJEUNE. CECILE BOUDROT's parents were CLAUDE BOUDROT and CATHERINE MEUNIER.
CHARLES LEBLANC and MADELEINE VINCENT were sent to Philadelphia in 1755 with their only son CHARLES, born in Acadia in 1746, and who died a bachelor in 1818 leaving a fortune of $36,000. CHARLES LEBLANC, Jr., dit Le Riche(the Rich) was a sergeant in the American Army, and after the War of Independence he became a merchant at Philadelphia. Since he was a bachelor and had no will when he died a great number of LeBlancs hoped for a share of his fortune. The estate was settled by the court of Philadelphia after a lawsuit that lasted nine years, in 1828, in a judgment of equal sharing between the first cousins of CHARLES LEBLANC. But after searches which lasted as long as the lawsuit itself, the court found only sixteen heirs, apparently all children of the brothers and sisters of CHARLES' father. CHARLES LEBLANC was the son of JEAN LEBLANC and MARGUERITE RICHARD. JEAN was the son of JACQUES LEBLANC and CATHERINE HEBERT. JACQUES was the son of DANIEL LEBLANC and FRANCOISE GAUDET. MADELEINE VINCENT was the daughter of PIERRE VINCENT and JEANNE TRAHAN.
CLAUDE LEBLANC and his wife JUDITH BENOIT, JEAN LEBLANC and his wife MARGUERITE HEBERT, PIERRE LEBLANC and his wife CLAIRE BENOIT, and RENE LEBLANC and his wife MARIE BABIN, and their respective families, were exiled to Massachusetts in 1755, with their sisters MARGUERITE LEBLANC and her husband CHARLES HEBERT and MADELEINE LEBLANC and her husband PAUL BENOIT. These LeBlanc family members were the children of RENE LEBLANC and JEANNE LANDRY.
CHARLES LEBLANC and his family were exiled to England in 1755 where he remarried in 1760 to MADELEINE GAUTROT daughter of PIERRE GAUTROT and MARIE-JOSEPHE BUGEAUD, being the widower of ANNE BOUDROT. He and his family were then sent to old France. In 1785, they all took passage on the ship Saint-Remi to Louisiana. CHARLES LEBLANC was the son of RENE LEBLANC and JEANNE LANDRY. RENE was the son of JACQUES LEBLANC and CATHERINE HEBERT. JACQUES was the son of DANIEL LEBLANC and FRANCOISE GAUDET. ANNE BOUDROT was the daughter of CLAUDE BOUDROT and CATHERINE MEUNIER.
FRANCOIS LEBLANC, his wife ANNE CORMIER and his family were exiled to Caroline in 1755.
OLIVIER LEBLANC, his wife MARIE-JOSEPH AUCOIN, and his family were exiled to Philadelphia. OLIVIER LEBLANC was the son of RENE LEBLANC and JEANNE LANDRY. RENE LEBLANC's parents were JACQUES LEBLANC and CATHERINE HEBERT. JACQUE'S parents were DANIEL LEBLANC AND FRANCOISE GAUDET. MARIE-JOSEPH AUCOIN's parents were MARTIN AUCOIN and ELISABETH (ISABELLE) BOUDREAU. MARTIN AUCOIN was the son of MARTIN AUCOIN and CATHERINE THERIAULT. MARTIN was the son of MARTIN AUCOIN and MARIE GAUDET. This last MARTIN was the son of MARTIN AUCOIN and MARIE SALLEE.
JOSEPH DIT JAMBO LEBLANC, his wife MARGUERITE TRAHAN and his family were exiled to England in 1755, then to France where they all appear on the census of 1765 at Belle-Isle-en-Mer. In 1785, they all took passage on the ship Le Bon Papa to Louisiana. JOSEPH DIT JAMBO LEBLANC was the son of RENE LEBLANC and JEANNE LANDRY. RENE was the son of JACQUES LEBLANC and CATHERINE HEBERT. JACQUES was the son of DANIEL LEBLANC. MARGUERITE TRAHANS' parents were PIERRE TRAHAN and MADELEINE COMEAU.
MADELEINE LEBLANC and her family was exiled to Massachusetts in 1755. Her husband, PAUL BENOIT died before 1763. MADELEINE LEBLANC was the daughter of RENE LEBLANC and JEANNE LANDRY. RENE was the son of JACQUES LEBLANC and CATHERINE HEBERT. JACQUES was the son of DANIEL LEBLANC. PAUL BENOIT's parents were PAUL BENOIT and ANNE TRAHAN.
JOSEPH LEBLANC was baptized at Saint-Charles des Mines, Acadia, November 7, 1718, the son of FRANCOIS LEBLANC and MARGUERITE BOUDROT. Francois himself the son of JACQUES LEBLANC, the son of DANIEL LEBLANC. MADELEINE GIROUARD, born at Grand-Pre, Acadia, May 25, 1719, was the daughter of PIERRE GIROUARD who had married for the second time, on November 14, 1709, MARIE DOUARON (DOIRON) daughter of JEAN DOUARON and MARIE TRAHAN. JOSEPH LEBLANC and MADELEINE GIROUARD were married about 1740. In 1752, they were at Malpec, Ile Saint-Jean (Prince Edward Island). The La Roque census mentions them as follows: "JOSEPH LEBLANC, ploughman, native of l'Acadie, aged 34 years, he has been in the country for a year, married to MADELEINE GIROIR, native of l'Acadie, aged 33 years. They have 6 children, two sons and four daughters: BASILE, aged 11 years old; JOSEPH, aged 9 years; MARIE, aged 7 years; ELISABETH, aged 5 years; MARGUERITE, aged 3 years; and MADELEINE, aged 8 months. They have no live stock. The land on which they are settled since last autumn is situated as in the preceding case (on the north shore of the Malpec river). On it they have made a clearing of about two arpents in extent."
The dispersion of 1755 did not affect the inhabitants of L'Ile Saint-Jean (Prince Edward Island), which continued to belong to the French until the fall of Louisbourg in 1758. What reason could have induced JOSEPH LEBLANC to take refuge at Carleton, Quebec in 1755. It wasn't until 1758 that the inhabitants of L'Ilse Saint-Jean were deported. Several had time to flee; for those of Malpec, because of the late season, the deportation took place late in autumn, and because of the lack of vessels, they were not transported. JOSEPH LEBLANC and his family must have left Ile Saint-Jean in the autumn of 1758 or in the spring of 1759. We do not have the date of JOSEPH LEBLANC's death, but he was still living at the time of the marriage of his son PIERRE on November 26, 1776. His wife MADELEINE GIROUARD died December 14, 1803.
CHARLES LEBLANC, his wife MARIE BOUDREAU, and family, like his brothers JACQUES' and FRANCOIS' families, were exiled to Massachusetts in 1755 and they requested to go to old France in 1763. In 1767, we meet the families of CHARLES, PIERRE, and JACQUES LEBLANC at Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon. CHARLES was the son of FRANCOIS LEBLANC and MARGUERITE BOUDROT. FRANCOIS was the son of JACQUES LEBLANC and CATHERINE HEBERT. JACQUES was the son of DANIEL LEBLANC. MARIE BARIOT (BARRIEAU)'s parent father was NICOLAS BARRIEAU mother UNKNOWN.
PIERRE LEBLANC was exiled to England where he married MARIE BOURGEOIS in 1760. This marriage was revalidated at Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon on October 16, 1762. PIERRE LEBLANC was the son of FRANCOIS LEBLANC and MARIE BARIOT. MARIE BOURGEOIS was the daughter of HONORE BOURGEOIS and MARIE-JEANNE RICHARD.
JACQUES LEBLANC, his wife NATHALIE DITE ANASTHASIE BRAULT(Breau), and his family were exiled to Massachusetts in 1755. In 1767, he was at Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon. JACQUES LEBLANC was the son of FRANCOIS LEBLANC and MARGUERITE BOUDREAU. NATHALIE BRAULT(BREAU) was the daugther of PIERRE BRAULT and ANNE-FRANCOISE DUPUIS.
FRANCOIS LEBLANC, his wife ISABELLE DUGAS, and his family, like that of his brother JACQUES LEBLANC, were exiled to Massachusetts in 1755. FRANCOIS LEBLANC was the son of FRANCOIS LEBLANC and MARGUERITE BOUDREAU. ISABELLE (ELISABETH) DUGAS was the daughter of JOSEPH DUGAS and CLAIRE BOURQUE.
MADELEINE LEBLANC and her husband PIERRE MELANSON, JEAN LEBLANC and his wife MADELEINE TERRIOT, MARGUERITE LEBLANC and her husband JOSEPH GRANGER, HONORE LEBLANC and his wife MARIE TRAHAN, CHARLES LEBLANC and his wife ELISABETH THIBODEAU, SIMON LEBLANC and his wife MARGUERITE BOURG(BOURQUE) and their families were all exiled to England in 1755, then to France, being at Belle-Isle-en-Mer, in 1765. Only that of SIMON went to Louisiana in 1785 on the ship Le Bon Papa. All the others remained in France. These LEBLANCs were the children of JACQUES LEBLANC and CATHERINE HEBERT.
JACQUES LEBLANC, his wife CATHERINE (MARIE-JOSEPHE) FOREST and family were deported in 1755 and ultimately settled in what is now Donaldsonville, Louisiana. JACQUES was the son of JACQUES LEBLANC and CATHERINE LANDRY.
JOSEPH LEBLANC, his wife ISABELLE GAUDET and family were deported in 1755 and passed to "Mississippi". JOSEPH was the son of JACQUES LEBLANC and CATHERINE LANDRY.
JACQUES LEBLANC, his wife CATHERINE LANDRY and family were exiled to Massachusetts in 1755 and sent to Braintree in April 1757, except a son, exiled to Maryland. Jacques was the son of FRANCOIS LEBLANC and JEANNE HEBERT.
JEAN-BAPTISTE LEBLANC, his wife MARIE LANDRY who he married November 8, 1745 in Grand-Pre, Acadia and his family were exiled to England 1755, then to Belle-Isle-en-Mer, France. After MARIE LANDRY'S death, he married MARGUERITE BELLEMERE who he married in Southampton, England August 10, 1758.
JEAN-BENONI LEBLANC, his wife MARGUERITE HEBERT and family, were exiled to Virginia in 1755. In 1763, his widow and children were at Georgetown, Maryland. BENONI was the son of FRANCOIS LEBLANC and JEANNE HEBERT.
JEAN-JACQUES LEBLANC (Bona Arsenault claimed that he was the son of Notary RENE LEBLANC. Other sources have said that his parentage was such as specified in the marriage certificate of URSULE LEBLANC in 1758 in Quebec. Information furnished me by one of his descendants by the name of Mario LeBlanc tells me that for 9 years he has not been able to substantiate the correct parentage for Jean-Jacques and that moreover, with a copy of the marriage certificate in hand, there is no mention of Jean-Jacques being Ursule LeBlanc's brother though he was a witness to the groom who was in the same trade as Jean-Jacques. However, two of Ursule's sisters are mentioned.) He was married to MARIE HEON before 1755 in Acadia. JEAN-JACQUES LEBLANC was "garde-magasin des Postes du Roi" and merchant at Champlain, Quebec, where he died at 70 years of age and was buried on January 23, 1790. Four of his grandsons became notaries in the province of Quebec and this may well be why Bona deduced that the father of Jean-Jacques was Rene the notary. In the Dictionnaire Genealogique des Familles Acadiennes, Stephen A. White does not list Jean-Jacques as one of the children of Rene and Elisabeth/Isabelle Melanson.
FELIX LEBLANC and his family were exiled to England in 1755, then to Saint-Servan, France. His wife JOSEPHTE TERRIOT (MARIE-JEANNE) presumably died before 1770 in France. FELIX as the son of CLAUDE LEBLANC and JEANNE DUGAS.
MARIN (MARTIN) LEBLANC, his wife ANNE CORMIER and family were exiled to South Carolina in 1755, where they still remained in 1763. MARIN (MARTIN) was the son of CLAUDE LEBLANC and JEANNE DUGAS.
The Reverend Patrice Gallant has this to say about ALAIN LEBLANC whose wife was ANNE BABIN and his family. "The census of 1777 for Carleton, province of Quebec, gives the following information concerning this family: ALAIN LEBLANC, (the son of CLAUDE LEBLANC and JEANNE DUGAS) 44 years old, his wife, 40. MARIN LEBLANC, 30 years old, his wife 27, two sons and two daughters in early childhood. JOSEPH LEBLANC, age 40 and AUGUSTIN LEBLANC, 30, both bachelors. ALAIN LEBLANC was the uncle of MARIN LEBLANC. JOSEPH LEBLANC and AUGUSTIN LEBLANC were the brothers of MARIN LEBLANC's wife MARGUERITE LEBLANC. All were transported from Acadia to France. In the Acadian registers of Belle-Isle-en-Mer, we find the following declaration: The year one thousand seven hundred and sixty seven, March seventh, there appeared ALAIN LEBLANC, living in the village of Kerledant, parish of Sauzon, who, in the presence of JOSEPH BABIN, LOUIS COURTIN, PIERRE DOUCET and SIMON-PIERRE DAIGRE(DAIGLE), all Acadians living on this island, witnesses, declared he was born at Les Mines, parish of Saint-Charles, in one thousand seven hundred thirty-one, of CLAUDE LEBLANC AND JEANNE DUGAST (DUGAS); CLAUDE LEBLANC was son of RENE LEBLANC and ANNE BOURGEOIS, and RENE LEBLANC born of DANIEL LEBLANC who came from France with his wife, settled at Port-Royal and died at said place. JEANNE DUGAST was daughter of ABRAHAM DUGAST and MARIE GUILBAUD. And ABRAHAM DUGAST, born of another ABRAHAM DUGAST who came from France with his wife, settled at Port-Royal, and died at said place. The said ALAIN LEBLANC, the informant, was married in England at Southampton the twenty-eighth of October one thousand seven hundred fifty-six, to ANNE MARIE BABIN, born in the said parish of Saint-Charles one thousand seven hundred thirty-seven of the late CLAUDE BABIN and MARGUERITE DUPUIS, the said MARGUERITE DUPUIS living in the village of Kerl?dant, parish of Sauzon, consulted there; closed and finalized under the signatures of the witnesses mentioned in these preents, of messire JOSEPH BENOIST, messire JEAN-LOUIS LE LOUTRE, missionary priest, and of ourselves, clerks to write the said declarations, this twelfth of March in the said year. SIGNED: LOUIS COURTIN, PIERRE DOUCET, JOSEPH BABIN, SIMON-PIERRE DAIGRE, J.L. LE LOUTRE, Ptre Miss., JOsEPH BENOIST, parish priest of Sauzon and THEBAUD, sworn clerk.
MARIN LEBLANC, also called PIERRE-MARIN, married at Saint-Servan, France, on October 28, 1769, MARGUERITE LEBLANC, daughter of JEAN LEBLANC and MADELEINE TERRIOT. MARIN was the son of FELIX LEBLANC, who, on October 10, 1742, married MARIE-JOSEPHE TERRIOT, which FELIX LEBLANC ws the son of CLAUDE LEBLANC. JOSEPH LEBLANC, born in Acadia January 18, 1731, and AUGUSTIN LEBLANC, born June 2, 1742, lied with their sister MARGUERITE LEBLANC at that time.
When did ALAIN LEBLANC, MARIN LEBLANC and their family arrive at Carleton? PIERRE-MARIN LEBLANC appears for the first time in the Carleton registers on September 17, 1775; he acted as godfather for DESIRE LEBLANC, son of BENJAMIN LEBLANC. ALAIN LEBLANC was a godfather to JEAN-BAPTISTE LEBLANC, the son of JEAN-BAPTISTE LEBLANC. In the spring of 1774, two vessels belonging to Charles Robin brought from the Isle of Jersey several Acadian families composing a total of 81 persons; the BOURG(BOURQUE), BARIOT, ROBICHAUD families, etc. ALAIN LEBLANC and MARIN LEBLANC were doubtless of this group. The family of MARIN LEBLANC alone, left posterity in Carleton. In the status of the Acadian families, November 1, 1765, the 17th family reads as follows: ALAIN LEBLANC (34 years), husband of ANNE BABIN (29 years). One son; JoSEPH, a minor (13 years). In the village of Kerledan. Two years later, in the declaration by ALAIN LEBLANC, no mention is made of this JOSEPH, and the Carleton census does not speak of him either. The two brothers JOSEPH and AUGUSTIN LEBLANC apparently did not marry; at least, they hae left no descendants at Carleton. ALAIN remained at Carleton, February 28, 1780. Mention may likewise be made of the decease of JEANNE DUGAS, widow, on October 15, 1784, at the age of 97 years."
JEAN LEBLANC (Jean dit Derico LeBlanc) and his wife FRANCOISE BLANCHARD, CLAUDE LEBLANC and his wife JOSEPHTE LONGUE-EPEE, JEAN AND CLAUDE were the sons of JEAN LEBLANC and JEANNE BOURGEOIS; and BRIGITTE LEBLANC and her husband CLAUDE GRANGER and their families, were exiled to England in 1755, then to Belle-Isle-en-Mer, France. BRIGITTE LEBLANC was the daughter of ANTOINE LEBLANC and ANNE LANDRY. BRIGITTE LEBLANC is among the survivors at the Falmouth, England prison and there is no mention of her husband CLAUDE GRANGER. So we must assume that he died in Falmouth. In 1763, CLAUDE LEBLANC remarried to MARIE-JOSEPHE GUEDRY at St-Servan, France.
PIERRE LEBLANC and his wife MARGUERITE GAUTROT, PAUL LEBLANC and his wife MADELEINE FOREST, and their families were exiled to Massachusetts in 1755 and they asked to be sent to old France in 1763.

AUGUSTIN LEBLANC, the only one known by that name in Acadia, seems to be the same one we meet in Massachusetts from 1763 to 1766 with one ELISABETH ? as his wife. They requested to be sent to a French territory, August 14, 1763. AUGUSTIN LEBLANC asked to be sent to Saint-Domingue on December 1, 1765.
