Notes for Pierre Vincent

Biography Vincent Pierre

first ancestor Vincent known in America

Father Léopold Lanctôt omi tells us in a work whose title is: FAMILIES ACADIENNES (Volume II), the following:

"Pierre Vincent, born in France around 1631. He came to Acadia in 1654, with Emmanuel Le Borgne, Sieur du Coudray, merchant of La Rochelle, who comes to supply the colony, in which he has commercial interests. war, put at the disposal of Le Borgne by his partner, the Duc de Vendôme, leaves La Rochelle on March 25, 1654. He carries on board some new settlers, including Pierre Vincent and Michel Richard, farmers, and Pierre Thibodeau, miller He is also in charge of provisions, weapons and ammunition, worth 75,000 pounds ($ 15,000) The 300-ton sailing ship arrives at Port-Royal in mid-May 1654. "

"A few days after his arrival, Pierre Vincent attends the capture of Port-Royal by Sedgwick ..........."

When Father Lanctôt writes about Pierre Thibodeau, he adds and I quote:

"...... Emmanuel Le Borgne de Bellisle, lord of Port-Royal ......"

"...... the Châteaufort, commanded by Captain Guilbeau ......."

the English also leave Port-Royal, leaving no garrison there: the inhabitants govern themselves by means of a Council presided over by a trustee, Guillaume Trahan. (His daughter Jeanne marries Pierre (II) Vincent).
