Generation #2

[Ref: "The Trahans of Acadia," in French Canadian and Arcadian Genealogical Review]



Guillaume TRAHAN I (b. abt 1611; d. abt 1682), toolsmith, emigrated to Acadia aboard
the Saint-Jean in 1636. (Another source indicates that Trahan was a marshal or general
(marchal) in the French army).  He was originally from St. Germain de Bourgeuile, Indre-
et-Loire, France.  He brought with him to Acadia his wife Francoise Charbonneau (m.
1628) and their daughter Jeanne Trahan (b. 1629).  After Francoise died in the mid 1660s,
Guillaume married Madeleine Brun, the daughter of Vincent BRUN and Marie Breaux, in
1666.



The Trahan-surname familes in North America originate from the three sons by
Guillaume’s second wife, Magdeleine BRUN: Jean-Charles, Alexandre, and Guillaume
II.



http://genforum.genealogy.com/trahan/messages/11.html

Guillaume Sr. was born in Montreuil-Bellay, France, then moved down the road to
Borgeuil. He got in trouble for cutting trees belonging to Borgeuil Abbey and that may
have inspired him to become an Acadian colonist. He was part of the big 1636
emigration, organized by D'Aulnay. [Guillaume Trahan, toolsmith, his wife, two children
and a valet, along with several other emigrants from Bourgueil, sailed in the Role du Saint
Jehan
, a vessel which left La Rochelle on  April 1, 1636 for Acadia].



His first wife, Francoise Charbonneau died ca. 1660. He remarried Madeleine Brun,
about 35 years his junior, ca. 1666. She was the daughter of Vincent Brun and Renee
Brode (or Breau or Beau). Guillaume and Madeleine had the following children (data
from Arseneault and from early Acadian censuses): Guillaume, Jr. b. ca. 1667; Jehan, b.
ca. 1668; Alexandre; Jehan Charles, b.ca. 1670; Marie, b.ca. 1670; Jeanne, b. c.a 1672;
Madeleine, b.ca. 1677.

Died: 1682, Port Royal, Acadia

Notes:

Guillaume Trahan and his wife, Françoise Charbonneau, along with their
daughter Jeanne Trahan, left their home in Bourgueil for LaRochelle, where they
left for Acadia on the ship "St. Jehan", arriving in Acadia in 1636. In 1666, as a
widower, he married Madeleine Brun. As early as 1640 he became the
representative of the inhabitants of Pentagouet (Castine, Maine), La Heve, and
Port Royal. Guillaume was trustee and president of the inhabitants of the area.
The parents of Guillaume Trahan, Nicolas and Renee Desloges lived at
Montreuil-Bellay, in Maine and Loire. Guillaume was probably born there.
Guillaume and Françoise married at the parish of St. Edouard de Chinon,
France. Nine years later, they and their daughter Jeanne (along with other
families) left Bourgueil (in Inde et Loire) for La Rochelle, where they took the ship
St. Jehan and sailed for Acadia, arriving in 1636. As early as 1640 he became
the representative of the inhabitants of Pentagouet (Castine, Maine), La Heve,
and Port Royal. Guillaume was trustee and president of the inhabitants of the
area. He married, around 1666, as a widower, to Madeleine Brun. As early as
1640, he became the representative of the inhabitants of Pentagouet (now
known as Castine, Maine), of La Heve (close to Fort Point, south of Lunenburg in
Nova Scotia), and of Port Royal. In 1654, when Major Sedgewick captured Port
Royal, Guillaume was trustee and president of the inhabitants of the area.

    • So it was in 1654 that an English force from Boston headed to Acadie with orders
      from Cromwell to clear the French from the place. The British commander,
      Robert Sedgwick, had easy work. He quickly subdued the lightly defended
      Acadian lands, but instead of clearing the Frenchmen out, left the colony in
      control of a local council headed by Guillaume Trahan.
