Acadians Who Found Refuge in Louisiana, February 1764-early 1800s

GUILLOT

[GEE-yot, gee-YOT]

ACADIA

Jehan Guiot of Dijon, France, a laborer, and another Jehan Guiot, from Riviere d'Aulray, France, a "master valler," came to Acadia aboard the St.-Jehan in 1636--the same ship that brought early colonists Pierre Martin and Guillaume Trahan.  Evidently the Jehans did not remain in the colony, or they may have died there before creating families of their own.  . 

.

Interestingly, the famous Canadian explorer Louis Jolliet's stepfather was a Guillot.  Louis's father, wheelwright Jean Jolyet, died at Québec in April 1651, when Louis was only five and a half.  Louis's mother, Marie d'Abancourt, remarried to Gefroy Guillot, who drowned in the St. Lawrence in the summer of 1655. 

.

Marie Guillot married Jean Moisan on Newfoundland in c1690.  She died on Newfoundland a few years later.  

~

Pierre, son of Sr. Jean Guiot or Guyot, was born at Bayonne, France, in c1677.  In 1709, he was a habitant, fisherman, and cabaretier at Plaisance, Newfoundland.  He married Marie-Françoise, daughter of Pierre Baudry, at Plaisance in April 1790 and died at St.-Esprit, Île Royale, in November 1744, age 67.   He and his wife had 11 children, seven sons and four daughters.  His oldest daughter married into the Horquellard family at St.-Esprit, but the spouses of his other children are lost to history.  None of Pierre's descendants emigrated to Louisiana.  

~

Brothers Henri, born in c1693, and René Guillot dit L'Angevin, born in c1695, reached Acadia from Doix, France, in the late 1710s, soon after the colony had fallen under British control.  They settled at Minas and then moved to Cobeguit.  Descendants of the younger brother emigrated to Louisiana from France in 1785.

Henri, whose wife's name is lost to history, fathered two children, son René le jeune, born in c1722, and daughter Marie-Josèphe, born in c1723.  According to Bona Arsenault, René le jeune fathered at least one child, daughter Marie-Rose, born in c1751, but Arsenault .  In c1750, Henri and his daughter moved to French-controlled Île St.-Jean, today's Prince Edward Island.  In August 1752, a French official counted Henri, who he called Herné, age 59, with daughter Marie-Josèphe, age 29, and the family of nephew Jean-Baptiste Guillot, at Pointe-Prime on the island's southern coast.  Henri's line of the family, except for its blood, probably ended with his passing sometime later in the decade. 

Henri's brother René dit L'Angevin married Marguerite Doiron probably at Minas in c1719.  They, too, moved to Cobeguit.  They had at least four children, three sons and a daughter, who created families of their own.  All three of René dit L'Angevin's sons followed their widowered uncle to Île St.-Jean in c1750.  His daughter Marie-Josèphe married into the Breau family at Cobeguit and emigrated to Louisiana from France. 

Oldest son Jean-Baptiste, born at Grand-Pré in December 1720, married Marie-Madeleine Arcement of L'Assomption, Pigiguit, in c1745 and settled there.  They had at least three children, a son and two daugters, between 1746 and 1752.  They moved on to Île St.-Jean in c1750.  In August 1752, Jean-Baptiste was a widower living at Pointe-Prime on the island's southeastern shore with his three children.  Also with them were his uncle and a female cousin.  Jean-Baptiste remarried to Marguerite, daughter of Louis Bourg and Cécile Michel, on Île St.-Jean in c1754.  Between 1755 and 1757, Marguerite gave Jean-Baptiste three more children, two sons and a daughter.  The British deported the family to St.-Malo, France, in late 1758.  Jean-Baptiste, one of his daughters from his first wife, and all of his children by his second wife died at sea.  Marguerite and her two surviving stepchildren settled in the St.-Malo suburb of Pleudihen.  Her stepson Charles-Olivier married into the Boudrot family at nearby Trigavou in November 1766 and emigrated to Louisiana in 1785. 

Ambroise, born probably at Cobeguit in c1728, followed his kin to Île St.-Jean in c1750 and  married Théotiste, daughter of  François Daigre and Marie Boudrot of Pigiguit, on the island in February 1751.  In August 1752, Ambroise and Théotiste were living at Pointe-au-Boulleau on the island's southeastern shore with infant daughter Marguerite-Blanche.  Between 1752 and 1757, Théotiste gave Ambroise five children, a daughter and four sons.  The British deported the family to St.-Malo, France, in late 1758; their four younger children died at sea.  They settled in the St.-Malo suburb of Trigavou, where Théotiste gave Ambroise six more children, two daughters and four sons.  One of their sons emigrated to Louisiana in 1785. 

Youngest son René, fils, born probably at Cobeguit in c1731, followed his uncle and brothers to Île St.-Jean and married Marie-Rose, another daughter of François Daigre and Marie Boudrot, on the island in February 1751.  In August 1752, René, fils, and Marie-Rose were living at Pointe-Prime near his uncle and oldest brother.  In 1755 and 1758, Marie-Rose gave René, fils two children, both sons.  The British deported the family to St.-Malo, France, in late 1758.  The two children died at sea, and wife Marie-Rose died in a St.-Malo soon after arrival from the rigors of the crossing.  René, fils remarried to Françoise, daughter of François Bourg and Madeleine Hébert and widow of Joseph Naquin, at nearby St.-Suliac in August 1760.  Between 1761 and 1773, Françoise gave René, fils eight more children, four sons and four daughters.  A son and a daughter emigrated to Louisiana in 1785. 

[For more of this family in pre- and post-disperal Acadia and Canada, see Book Three]

By 1755, descendants of René Guillot dit L'Angevin no longer lived in British Nova Scotia.  They could be found, instead, in at least two communities on Île St.-Jean.  

~

Mainurin Guillot of Madrignac, Bishopric of St.-Brieux, France, a domestic, age 17, was counted with the family of fisherman Pierre Cezard Alexandre LeGrand of Plaisance, Newfoundland, on the Great Harbor of the Île of Scatary, off Île Royale, in 1752.

LOUISIANA:  LAFOURCHE VALLEY SETTLEMENTS

The Guillots who left France in 1785 sailed to Louisiana aboard three of the Seven Ships.  After a brief respite in New Orleans, all of them chose to go to upper Bayou Lafourche:

Françoise-Gertrude Guillot, age 19, crossed on La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in August.  An older brother may have crossed with her.  She married fellow Acadian Félix Boudreaux, who may have been a widower, at Lafourche in October 1786, and remarried to Paul-Hippolyte, son of fellow Acadian Joseph Thériot, at Lafourche in May 1787.  Paul was a native of nearby St.-Jacques, his parents having come to the colony 20 years earlier.  Sometime in the late colonial period, Françoise followed Paul to the Attakapas District, west of the Atchafalaya Basin. 

Pierre Guillot, who would have been age 20 in 1785, cannot be found on any of the passenger lists of the Seven Ships expedition, but reliable sources place him in France in the 1770s.  He appears in the Valenzuéla census of 1788 on upper Bayou Lafourche, so he probably came to Louisiana from France in 1785 with his kinfolks.  He may have crossed on La Bergère with his younger sister Françoise-Gertrude.  He remained on the upper Lafourche.

.

Charles-Olivier Guillot, age 38, wife Marie-Josèphe Boudrot, age 40, and three children--Jean-Michel, age 14, Simon-François, age 12, and Élisabeth-Madeleine, age 10--crossed on Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in September.  Charles-Olivier and Marie-Josèphe had no more children in Louisiana.   Élisabeth-Madeleine married Ambroise-Mathurin, son of fellow Acadian Jean-Baptiste Hébert, at Assumption in November 1796; Ambroise-Mathurin also had come to Louisiana from France aboard Le St.-Rémi.  Jean-Michel and Simon-François also married and settled on the bayou. 

.

Charles-Olivier's aunt, Marie-Josèphe Guillot, age 62, husband Alexis Breau, age 61, their daughter Marguerite Breau, age 20, Alexis's cousin Jean-Charles Gautrot, age 22, and Marie-Josèphe's nephew Fabien-Amateur Guillot, age 20, crossed on L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in November.  Fabien-Amateur married and settled on the upper bayou. 

.

The Guillots from France created a center of family settlement on upper Bayou Lafourche: 

Descendants of Fabien-Amateur GUILLOT (1763-1834; René dit L'Angevin)

Fabien-Amateur, son of Ambroise Guillot and Théotiste Daigle, was born at Trigavou, France, near St.-Malo, in November 1763.  He came to Louisiana aboard L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships from France, in 1785, with a paternal aunt, an uncle-in-law, and two cousins, and followed them to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he married Anne-Josèphe, daughter of fellow Acadians Prosper-Honoré Giroir and Marie Dugas, in February 1786 and re-validated the marriage at Assumption in September 1797.  Anne had come to Louisiana aboard La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships.  They settled on the upper bayou.  Fabien died in Assumption Parish in October 1834; he was 72 years old.  His daughters married into the Bourque and Blanchard families.  All seven of his sons remained in Assumption Parish, where some of them became prosperous planters.

5

Youngest son Arselin Sébastien, by his second wife, born in Assumption Parish in January 1818, may have died young.  

Other GUILLOTs in the Lafourche/Terrebonne Valley

Area church and civil records make it difficult to link some Guillots in the Bayou Lafourche/Bayou Terrebonne valley with known Acadian lines of the family there.  One suspects that some of the Guillots who lived in Lafourche valley during the post-war period were Afro Creoles once owned by Acadian Guillots:

Evariste Guillot died in Assumption Parish in September 1853.  The Plattenville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Evariste died at "age 19 years, 4 months."  Did Evariste marry? 

Sarah, daughter of Justine Mavigne Guillot, married Francis, son of Henri Henri and Célestine Gabriel, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in June 1869. 

LOUISIANA:  WESTERN SETTLEMENTS

No Acadian Guillot family line appeared on the western prairies before the War of 1861-65.  However, female Acadian Guillots lived on upper and lower Bayou Teche during the late colonial and late antebellum periods.  Not until after the war did Acadian Guillots, from Lafourche and Terrebonne parishes, create a western branch of the family by settling on lower Bayou Teche and in Lafayette Parish:

Françoise-Gertrude, daughter of René Guillot, born at Trigavou, France, in March 1767, came to Louisiana from France in 1785, married twice at Lafourche, and followed her second husband, Paul-Hippolyte Theriot, to the Attakapas District, where they settled at La Grand Pointe on upper Bayou Teche.  He died there in the late 1810s, and she in the early 1820s, in her mid-50s.  

A succession record for Marguerite Éloise Guillot was filed at the Franklin courthouse, St. Mary Parish, in May 1851.  Was she the Marguerite Louise Guillot who married fellow Acadian Basile Jacinte Richard at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in October 1821?  If so, she was a daughter of Jean Michel Guillot and Marie Rose Pitre of Lafourche Interior Parish. 

Other GUILLOTs on the Western Prairies

Some Guillots who lived in the western parishes during the immediate post-war period cannot be linked by local church and civil records to other Acadian members of the family in the area:

Estellina Guyot, perhaps a Guillot, married to Édouard Jenkins, died in Lafayette Parish in April 1867.  The Vermilionville priest who recorded the burial did not give any parents' names. 

August Guillot married Arthémise Broussard.  Their son Joseph Frédéric was born near New Iberia, then in St. Landry but now in Iberia Parish, in February 1868. 

NON-ACADIAN FAMILIES in LOUISIANA

Most of the Guillots of South Louisiana were Acadians, but some of them were Frenchmen with similar-sounding surnames who came to the colony decades before their Acadian namesakes arrived in 1785:

Louise-Françoise, daughter of Simon Guillot and Agathe Martin of Paris, married Charles, fils, son of Charles Davion of St.-Prix, France, at New Orleans in August 1720, only two years after the city was founded by the sieur de Bienville.  Charles was a soldier stationed at Fort St.-Jean-Baptiste, Natchitoches.  And there they remained. 

Guillots were counted at Biloxi, then part of French Louisiana, in 1721, and along the lower Mississippi River in 1726 and 1731, but they probably left no descendants in the colony.  

Jean Guillot of Limoges, France, married Marie-Angélique Prevost in New Orleans in 1736, but they do not seem to have left any descendants.  

René-Jacques Guiot, a soldier in de Gauvier's company, Louisiana troops, died at Pointe Coupée, on the river above New Orleans, evidently where he was stationed, in September 1745.  His burial record says nothing of his parents, birthplace, or a wife and children.  

Mathias Guio married Anne-Claudine Cleraux.  Their daughter Catherine-Élisabeth was born at New Orleans in November 1752. 

Joseph, son of Joseph Guillot and Françoise Simon of Sambrieu, Savoy, France, was a resident of New Orleans when he married New Orleans native Catalina, daughter of Jean Paillet, in January 1801.  Their son Joseph François was born at New Orleans in February 1802. 

Antoine Granger Guillot was widower of Marie Louise Langlois when he remarried to Marguerite, daughter of Antoine Rebol and widow of Guillaume Blake, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in June 1816; Marguerite's mother was a Doiron.  Clarisse Renée, a daughter by Antoine Granger Guillot's first wife, had been baptized at age four months at St. Gabriel back in April 1807, so Antoine Granger may have been a native of France who came to Louisiana during the late colonial period.  He seems to have fathered no sons.  

.

The largest family of French-Creole Guillots settled at Pointe Coupée during the early colonial period.  Some of them moved west to the Avoyelles and Opelousas prairies during the late colonial and early antebellum periods:  

Descendants of Pierre GUILLOT dit Dufresne (?-?)

Pierre Guillot dit Dufresne of Rheims, France, who also spelled his surname Guiot, married Pointe Coupée native Marguerite Richard, a French Creole, not an Acadian, probably at Pointe Coupée in the 1740s.  His children were born at Pointe Coupée.  In the mid-1780s, Pierre dit Dufresne moved his family northwest to the Avoyelles prairie.  Some of his grandsons moved south into the old Opelousas District.    

1

Oldest son Jean-Pierre, baptized at Pointe Coupée, a newborn, in July 1751, died at Pointe Coupée in October 1775.  He probably never married. 

2

Joseph, born in January 1754, married Francoise Dardenne at Pointe Coupée in the late 1770s.  Their son Joseph, fils was born at Pointe Coupée in c1783, Alexandre in c1784, and Zenon probably at Avoyelles in June 1789.  

2a

Alexandre married Élise, daughter of Joseph Carmouche of Avoyelles, in the Opelousas District in January 1803.  Their son Joseph le jeune was born probably in the Opelousas District in the 1800s or 1810s.  

Joseph le jeune married Manette, daughter of Zenon Gailleau, at the Opelousas church. St. Landry Parish, in January 1835. 

2b

Zenon married Seconde, daughter of Antointe Lachenette of Avoyelles, at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, in September 1809.  

3

Jean-Baptiste dit Dufresne, born in July 1757, died at Pointe Coupée at age 22 months in May 1759.

4

Georges dit Ferret, born in August 1760, married Marguerite, daughter of Pierre Landreneau, probably at Avoyelles in February 1787.  Their son Georges, fils was born probably at Avoyelles in October 1788. 

5

Youngest son Mathurin, born in May 1763, married Françoise, daughter of Claude Juneau, at Pointe Coupée in the 1780s.  Their son Augustin was born probably at Avoyelles in July 1786, Alexis in March 1788, and Célestin was baptized by a Pointe Coupée priest probably at Avoyelles in January 1793.  

Célestin married Marguerite Guillory and died in St. Landry Parish in the late 1830s.  

In September 1850, the federal census taker in Avoyelles Parish counted a single slave--a 40-year-old mulatto male--on widow Celia Guillot's farm.  The same census taker counted 2 slaves--a 22-year-old black male, and a 14-years-old black female--on another Widow Guillot's farm.  They probably were the wives or daughters of Pierre dit Dufresne's descendants.   

Pauline Guillot, widow of Julien Guillory and probably a descendant of Pierre dit Dufresne, married Vincent Lemane in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in March 1853.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  A marriage contract for Pauline and Vincent also was recorded at the Opelousas courthouse in June 1854.  Again, the parish clerk did not record any parents' names.  Pauline's succession record was filed at the Opelousas courthouse in September 1864.  The parish clerk recorded the names of her husbands but not her age. 

Jean Baptiste Guillot, probably a descendant of Pierre dit Dufresne, married Johanna Quebedeau in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in October 1858.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.

In June 1860, the federal census taker in Avoyelles Parish counted a single slave--a 16-year-old black female--on François Guillot's farm  In early July, the same census taker counted a single slave--a 49-year-old mulatto--on Widow Célestin Guillot's homestead.  Célizie Guillot, just down the road, owned a single black female slave, age 50.  Not far distant on the Avoyelles prairie, Pierre Guillot held 6 slaves--3 males and 3 females, all black, ranging in age from 36 to 3, living in a single house.  The following October, the federal census taker in Avoyelles counted 3 slaves--a 65-year-old male, a 50-year-old female, and a 25-years-old male, all black and all living under the same roof--on Valéry Guillot's farm.  

John Guillot married Lizy McKinney in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in March 1869.

Another, older, Pointe Coupée family, the Guéhos from Brittany, who also spelled their surname Guihot, Guio, or Guiot, are easily confused with the Guillots of Pointe Coupée, Avoyelles, and Opelousas.  A Guého birth was recorded at New Orleans as early as April 1733.  

Descendants of Pierre GUIOT or GUÉHO dit Le Jeunesse (?-?)

Pierre Guiot or Guého dit La Jeunesse, son of Pierre Guiot and Catherine La Mirande of Bonneval, Beauce, Brittany, France, was the widower of Marie-Louise Ozenne when he remarried to Marie-Jeanne, daughter of Jean-George Poché, at Pointe Coupée in January 1741.  Pierre dit La Jeunesse remarried to Jeanne-Adrienne, daughter of Francois Riche, at Pointe Coupée, in August 1759.  Pierre dit La Jeunesse died at Pointe Coupée in April 1768; the priest who recorded his burial did not bother to give his age.

Older son Jean-Pierre, called Pierre, by his first wife, born at Pointe Coupée in November 1749, married Marie-Félicité, called Félicité, daughter of Francois Berluchaud, at Pointe Coupée in May 1774.  Their son François was baptized at Pointe Coupée in August 1775, Pierre, fils in January 1778 but died in the Opelousas District at age 10 in April 1789, and Alexandre was baptized at Opelousas in February 1791.  

François returned to Pointe Coupée, where he married Marianne, daughter of French Creole Pierre Bergeron of Pointe Coupée, at Pointe Coupée in February 1795.  Their son François, fils was born at Pointe Coupée in February 1805, Terence in February 1806, Valérien in July 1811, and Vincent in August 1813.  Francois, père died in Pointe Coupee Parish in March 1852; he was 83 years old.  

François, fils married Clarissa, daughter of French Creole Francois David, at the Pointe Coupee church, Pointe Coupee Parish, in September 1825. 

François Guého, perhaps a son of François, fils, married Julie Prosper probably in Pointe Coupee Parish in the 1850s.  Their son Émile was born in Pointe Coupee Parish in December 1858.  

Terence married cousin Eloise, daughter of French Creole Hippolyte Bergeron, at the Pointe Coupee church, Pointe Coupee Parish, in April 1827.  

Vincent married Désirée, daughter of Cyprien Gremillion, at the Pointe Coupee church, Pointe Coupee Parish, in May 1832.  Vincent died at his home on Bayou Grosse-Tete, Pointe Coupee Parish, in February 1852; he was only 30 years old.  

Valérien married Irma Gremillion in a civil ceremony in Pointe Coupee Parish in the 1830s.  Their twin sons Valérien, fils and Vincent le jeune were born in Pointe Coupee Parish in September 1844, and Léonce in February 1849.

Younger son Louis dit Lejeunesse, by his second wife, born at Pointe Coupée in March 1768, married Geneviève, daughter of French Creole Michel Lejeune of Pointe Coupée and widow of Joseph Jeanise, at Pointe Coupée in May 1774.  They remained at Pointe Coupée.  

Omer or Oscar Guého married Émilie Guého, probably a cousin, in the 1850s.  Their son Terence was born in Pointe Coupee Parish in January 1858, Oscar in August 1860, and Edmond in December 1861.  

St. James Guého married Prudence Guého in a civil ceremony probably in Pointe Coupee Parish in the 1850s.  Their son Arthur was born in Pointe Coupee Parish in March 1861.  

No Guého appears on a Louisiana or Confederate unit roster during the War of 1861-65.

Immigrants from France with similar-sounding surnames, called Foreign French by native Louisianians, came to New Orleans during the antebellum period.  Some of them settled in predominantly Acadian communities outside of the city:  

W. C. Guillot, a 35-year-old merchant from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Venus out of Le Havre, France, in April 1826.  

Barthélemy, son of Jacques Guillot and Benoîte Duhon of Lyon, France, married Delphine Antoinette, called Antoinette, daughter of French Creole Sylvain Tregle, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in February 1832.  Their son François Velleinse was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in November 1832, and Barthélemy, fils in June 1834, so non-Acadian Guillots settled among their Acadian namesakes in the Lafourche valley.  

A non-Acadian, perhaps a Foreign Frenchman, whose surname resembled that of the Guillots, also settled on Bayou Lafourche.  In the 1830s, Célestin Guyot married Anglo Marie Elizabeth, called Elizabeth, Ferguson probably in Lafourche Interior Parish.  Their son Eugène Joseph was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in May 1845.  Their daughters married into the Chiasson, Dantin, Darden, and Picou families.  Célestin died in Lafourche Interior Parish in October 1847; the priest who recorded his burial did not give his parents' names or his age at the time of death; a petition for a family meeting was filed at the Thibodeaux courthouse in March 1851.  

Philip Guillot, a 38-year-old carpenter from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Pennsylvania out of Mexico in January 1836.  

Ysidor Guillot, a 24-year-old baker from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Venezia out of Havana, Cuba, in September 1836.  

Claude Guillot, a 36-year-old baker from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Alexander out of Le Havre in November 1837.  A few days later, Jean Guillot, a 51-year-old native of France, occupation unrecorded, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Marengo out of Le Havre.  

F. Guillut, a 29-year-merchant from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Chieftain out of Havana in March 1838.  That same month, J. B. Guyot, a 40-year-old laborer from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Bonny Boat out of Santiago de Cuba.  

Charles G. Guillot, a 62-year-old trader from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Cora out of Tampico, Mexico, in March 1839.  With him was Virginia Guillot, age 30, probably his daughter.  

Louis Guiot, a 22-year-old native of France, occupation unrecorded, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Salem out of Le Havre in November 1839.  

____ Guyot, a 31-year-old native of France, occupation unrecorded, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Vaillant out of Bordeaux, France, in April 1840.  With him was his wife, also a French native, age 23.  

L. M. Guillot, a 19-year-old native of France, occupation unrecorded, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Châteaubriand out of Bordeaux in April 1841.  

Baptiste Guillot, a 47-year-old farmer from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Vesta out of Le Havre in June 1846.  With him was wife Francoise, age 40, and their children Marie, age 13, Emerentine, age 9, Claude, age 8, Francois, age 5, and Pierre, age 4.  

Guillaume Guillot, a 45-year-old farmer from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Rome out of Le Havre in March 1848.  He was heading to Texas.  

August Guyot, a 26-year-old farmer from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Moselle out of Le Havre in July 1848.  

Jean Guillot, a 49-year-old farmer from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Hargrave out of Le Havre in February 1849.  With him was wife Marie, age 50, also a native of France.  

.

Guillots, some of them perhaps Foreign French, others French Creoles, lived in New Orleans and the surrounding parishes during the antebellum period, and some of them owned slaves:

In late August 1850, the federal census taker in Ward 2, Orleans Parish, which included the city of New Orleans, counted 9 slaves--5 blacks and 4 mulattoes, 3 males and 6 females, ranging in age from 42 to 3--in J. A. Guillotte's household.  In July 1860, the federal census taker in Ward 2, Orleans Parish, the city of New Orleans, visited the household of J. A. Guillotte again and counted only 5 slaves this time--2 blacks and 4 mulattoes, 1 male and 4 females, ranging in age from 45 to 6.  

In late August 1850, the federal census taker in Ward 5, also part of the city, counted 2 slaves--a 32-year-old mulatto female and an 18-year-old black female--in Edward Guillot's household. 

In Ward 7, also in the city, in late September 1850, the federal census taker counted 6 slaves--3 blacks and 3 mulattoes, 3 males and 3 females, ranging in age from 50 to 4--in Jh, probably John, Guillot's household. 

In the same ward, in late October 1850, the census taker counted a single 36-year-old black male slave owned by E. Guillotte

In early June 1860, the federal census taker in Jefferson Parish, just upriver from New Orleans, counted 8 slaves--7 blacks and 1 mulatto, 6 males and 2 females, ranging in age from 75 to 5, living in 3 houses--on J. C. Guillotte's farm. 

CONCLUSION

Guillots settled late in Acadia, and they came "late" to Louisiana.  In fact, if the Spanish government had not coaxed over 1,500 Acadians in France to emigrate to the colony, there probably would be no Acadian Guillots in the Bayou State today.  Le Grand Dérangement and settlement schemes in France devastated this Île St.-Jean family, but the hand full of Acadian Guillots who made it to Louisiana in 1785 found peace and comfort finally in the Bayou Lafourche valley, where several of their lines proliferated.  By the 1850s, a few of them had slipped south into Terrebonne Parish, one of them as far west as Chacahoula, near Bayou Black, but most of them remained along the upper stretches of the bayou where their immigrant ancestors had settled decades before.  Soon after the War of 1861-65, Guillots from Lafourche and Terrebonne parishes settled west of the Atchafalaya Basin on lower Bayou Teche and on the prairies of Lafayette Parish, but most of them remained on the southeastern bayous. 

Meanwhile, non-Acadian Guillots who had settled at Pointe Coupee as early as the 1740s moved northwestward into the Avoyelles prairie in the mid-1780s, and some of them moved south into the Opelousas District, where they still could be found in the late 1850s.  Foreign-French Guillots found a home in New Orleans as well as on the river above the city and along Bayou Lafourche among their Acadian namesakes.  

Judging by the number of slaves held by Guillots during the late antebellum period, a few members of the family, especially on upper Bayou Lafourche and in the city of New Orleans, lived very comfortably as businessmen and farmers.  In 1850, Acadian Jean Baptiste Guillot held 16 slaves on his farm in Assumption Parish.  Louis Guillot, on the farm next door, held 15.  Ten years later, Acadian Alexandre Guillot of Assumption Parish owned 31 slaves on two holdings along Bayou Lafourche.  His aunt, Eugènie Templet, widow of Jean Baptiste Guillot, held 19 slaves in the same parish.  But most of the Guillots, Acadian and French Creole, owned no slaves on their simple farms in the bayou and prairie parishes.  

Dozens of Guillots served Louisiana in uniform during the War of 1861-65, and at least four of them died in Confederate service.  Ambroise Guillot of Company A, 1st Regiment Louisiana Heavy Artillery, a conscript probably from Assumption Parish, died of disease at Vicksburg, Mississippi, in November 1862.  G. B. Guillot of Company K(2nd), Crescent Regiment Louisiana Infantry, another conscript, joined the company in November 1862 at Camp Pratt, near New Iberia, and died in a hospital at New Iberia a few weeks later.  J. B. Guillot of Company D, 26th Regiment Louisiana Infantry, enlisted in the Lafourche Parish unit in March 1862 and died in a hospital at Mississippi Springs, Mississippi, the following July.  O. Guillot of Company C, 18th Regiment Louisiana Infantry, a conscript assigned to this unit in October 1862, died the following month probably in a New Iberia hospital, another victim of disease. 

During the war, successive Federal incursions devastated the Bayou Lafourche valley.  Confederate foragers also plagued the area when the Federals were not around.  ...

After the war, Acadian and French Creole Guillots began to move even farther from the homes of their immigrant ancestors.  One scholar speculates that the Guillots of Rapides Parish today descend from the Guillots of Avoyelles.  Some of the Avoyelles Guillots who settled in the Opelousas area may have moved south into present-day Lafayette Parish, but most of the Guillots who now live in Lafayette, and especially in Iberia Parish, south of the Hub City, are descendants of Acadian Guillots who migrated west from Lafourche and Terrebonne parishes.  A recent count of Guillots in Louisiana found more of them living west of the Atchafalaya Basin than east of it.  A substantial number of them also live in the New Orleans area, descendants not only of Foreign-French Guillots but also of Acadian and French-Creole members of the family who succumbed to the material economy of the late twentieth century and moved to the big city.   

The family's name also is spelled Diotte, Guiau, Guihote, Guillau, Guilleau, Guillote, Guillotte, Guilloz, Guyllotte, Guyot.  [For the Acadian family's Louisiana "begats," see Book Ten]

02.  Wall of Names, 40 (pl. 10L), calls him Fabien GUILLOT neveu [of Alexis BROD], & lists him with his uncle, aunt, & 2 cousins; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 387-89, Family No. 477, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Fabien-Amateur GUILLOT, gives his parents' names, says he was godson of Pierre DUGAST & Marguerite GUILLOT, & that his family lived at Trigavou from 1759-72; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 72-73, calls him Fabien GUILLOT, son [Alexis BROD's] neveu au dit, marin, age 23, on the embarkation list, Fabian GUILLOT, on the debarkation list, & Fabien GUILLOT, his [Alexis BRAUD's] nephew, sailor, age 23, on the complete listing, says he was in the 29th Family aboard L'Amitié with his uncle, aunt, & 2 cousins, that, calling him Fabien-Amateur GUILLOT, he was born in 1763 but gives no birthplace, & lists the implements the Spanish gave him after he reached LA; BRDR, 2:219, 348 (ASC-1, 166), a corrupted marriage record, calls him Fabian GUILLOT, calls his wife Théotiste DAIGLE, does not give his or her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Étienne DUPUIS & Simon DUGAS; BRDR, 2:8a-8b (ASC-1, 166), a correction of this record, calls him Fabian GUILLOT, calls his "wife" Théotiste DAIGLE "(sic) (should be Anne GIROIR - the priest probably mistakenly wrote into the entry the name of the groom's mother as the bride)," does not give his father's or his "wife's" parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Étienne DUPUIS & Simon DUGAS; BRDR, 2:323, 348 (ASM-2, 27), the actual record of his marriage, calls him Fabian GUILLOT, calls his wife Ana GIROIR, says they married on 3 Sep 1797 but that the marriage was a re-validation, does not give his or his wife's parents' names, says he & his wife shared 3rd degree consanguinity, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Ambroise HÉBERT & Joseph HÉBERT; BRDR, 5(rev.):285 (ASM-3, 248), his death/burial record, calls him Fabien GUILLOT, age 72 yrs., says he died yesterday but does not gives his parents' names or his wife's name.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 41, 50, 173.  

His estimated birth year is taken not from the passenger list of L'Amitié but from an average of the ages given in the Ascension censuses of 1788 & 1791 & the Assumption census of 1795.  

As Robichaux's study of the Acadians in St.-Malo, cited above, reveals, he was the only member of his large immediate family (11 children) to go to LA.  He certainly made up for it there.  Many LA GUILLOTs are his direct descendants.  

As the corrected version of his marriage record shows, he married only once. 

03.  Wall of Names, 29 (pl. 7L), calls her Françoise GUILLOT, & lists her singly; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 391-93, Family No. 480, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Francoise-Gertrude GUILLOT, gives her parents' names, says her godparents were Dominique GUÉRIN & Victoire BRAUD, & that her family resided at Trigavou from 1759-72; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 12-13, calls her Francoise GUILLOT, fille, age 19, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Francoise GUILLOT, single woman, age 19, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 10th Family aboard La Bergère with no one else; BRDR, 2:111, 348 (ASC-2, 5), the record of her first marriage, calls her Francoise GUILLOT, calls her husband Félix BOUDREAU, does not give her or his parents' names but says they were Acadian, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Pierre GUILLOT [her brother] & Pierre LANDRY; BRDR, 2:535, 691-92 (ASC-2, 7), the record of her second marriage, calls her Francisca MELANÇON[sic], "of Acadia & widow of Filis BUDRO," calls her husband Paul TÉRRIO, does not give her or his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Pierre BOURQUE & Thomas TÉRRIO [his brother]; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-B:463 (SM Ct.Hse.: Succ. $456), her succession record, calls her Françoise GUILLOT m. Paul THERIOT. 

Her father was from Grand-Pré, Cobeguit, & Pointe-Prime, Île St.-Jean, & had come to France in 1758-59 aboard one of the Five Ships with his first wife, Marie-Rose DAIGLE.  See Arsenault, Généalogie, 1493-94, Cobequid section; De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:122; Robichaux. 

Though she was listed singly on the La Bergère passenger list, Francoise may have come to LA with her older brother Pierre, who does not appear on any of the Seven Ships passenger lists but settled at Ascension & on upper Bayou Lafourche. 

Was her first husband the Félix BOUDREAUX who came to LA aboard Le St.-Rémi in Sep 1785 with his wife Madeleine HÉBERT & who remarried to Luce-Perpétué BOURG, widow of Pierre HÉBERT, at Ascension in Aug 1787?  See BRDR, 2:111 (ASC-2, 9).  He would have been 55 in 1786, more than twice Françoise GUILLOT's age.  He is also called the widower of Magdalena HEVERT [HÉBERT] in the Aug 1787 marriage record.  Moreover, his wife Madeleine HÉBERT was buried on 23 Oct 1786.  See BRDR, 2:366 (ASC-1, 200b).  This makes no sense; a man is not allowed to marry a week before his wife dies, so he is probably not the one.  However, the only other Félix BOUDREAUX I have found in Wall of Names who would have been in LA at the time was Félix-Marie BOUDREAUX, who would have been a year old in 1786!  The Félix BOUDREAUX she married in 1787 evidently is not in Wall of Names for the simple reason that he did not appear on any of the 7 Ships passenger rolls.  We can thank the priest at Ascension--again--for not listing the parents of the bride & groom in a marriage record. 

Arsenault, Généalogie, 2595, profile for Paul THÉRIOT of the Attakapas/Opelousas area, calls his wife Françoise GUILLOT, & says they were married in c1780 at St.-Martinville.  But the Françoise GUILLOT who came to LA in 1785 could not have been in France & in the Attakapas District at the same time.  Arsenault unfortunately does not list her parents' names, so, considering the marriage year he gives, his information is suspect.  However, although Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, vol. 1-A, has no marriage record for this couple, several baptismal records in 1-A:742-43, all from the church at Attakapas Post, now St. Martinville, confirm the marriage between Paul THÉRIOT & this Françoise GUILLOT & even provide her parents' names & her birthplace.  The baptismal dates for their children are 7 Dec 1788 for son Joseph (SM Ch.:v.4, #331), 22 Mar 1793 for son Paul (SM Ch.:v.4, #616), 21 Jun 1795 for son Julien (SM Ch.: v.4, #715), 15 Nov 1797 for son Martin (SM Ch.: v.5, #17), & 6 Aug 1800 for daughter Marie-Marthe (SM Ch.: v.5, #300), with the earliest birth date that of son Joseph, born 28 Mar 1788.  So Paul THÉRIOT & Françoise GUILLOT were married probably at Ascension before Dec 1788.  The mystery is solved by looking at the MELANÇON family section in BRDR, vol. 2, cited above, which lists Françoise as a member of that family.  Evidently someone--more likely the befuddled priest at Ascension, or, less likely, the compilers of BRDR--confused the groom's mother's name with the bride's name.  Paul THERIOT's mother was ... Françoise MELANÇON.

Paul THÉRIOT came to LA in 1765 from Halifax as a teenager with his widowed mother & 3 brothers.  They settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, just downriver from Ascension.  By the early 1790s, however, while he was living on upper Bayou Teche west of the Atchafalaya Basin, 2 of his brothers had moved to southern edge of the Baton Rouge District.  

She would have been 55 years old at the time her succession was filed in Sep 1822.  Her husband's succession record had been filed at the St. Martinville courthouse in May 1817, so she probably died a widow.  See Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-A:476 (SM Ct.Hse.: Succ. #264).

04.  Wall of Names, 36 (pl. 9L), calls her Isabel [GUILLOT], & lists her with her parents & 2 brothers; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 389, Family No. 478, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Élizabeth-Madeleine GUILLOT, & says her godparents were Tranquille PITRE & Marguerite BRAUD; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 48-49, calls her Isabel, sa [Charles-Olivier GUILLOT's] fille, age 10, on the embarkation list, & Isabelle GUILLOT, his [Charles-Olivier GUILLOT's] daughter, age 10, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 26th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with her parents & 2 brothers; BRDR, 2:349, 354 (ASM-2, 22), her marriage record, dated 22 Nov 1796, calls her Ysabel Magdalena GUILLOT, gives her & her husband's parents' names, & says both sets of parents were from Acadia, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Juan GUILLAN & Bernard TERRIOU.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 45.

The date in her marriage record may be wrong.  If they were married in Nov 1796, why is he still counted with his parents in the Assumption census of Apr 1797? 

05.  Wall of Names, 36 (pl. 9L), calls him Jean-Michel [GUILLOT], & lists him with his parents & 2 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 389, Family No. 478, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Jean-Michel GUILLOT, & says his godparents were Charles BRAUD & Victoire HÉBERT; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 48-49, calls him Jean-Michel, son [Charles-Olivier GUILLOT's] fils, age 14, on the embarkation list, & Jean-Michel GUILLOT, his [Charles-Olivier GUILLOT's] son, age 14, on the complete listing, says he was in the 26th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his parents & 2 siblings, & that he was born in 1769 but gives no birthplace; BRDR, 2:348, 594 (ASC-2, 26), his marriage record, calls him Juan Miguel GUILLAU, gives his & his wife's parents' names & his wife's first husband's name, says his parents were from St.-Brigit Parish, St.-Malo, & his wife's parents were from St.-Julian Parish, St.-Malo, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Simon GUILLOT [his brother] & Chale GUILOT [his father]; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:255 (Thib.Ch.: v. 1, p. 36), his death/burial record, calls him Jean Michel GUILLOT, says he died at age 58yrs, but does not give the names of his parents or wife; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:255 (Thib.Ct.Hse.: Succ.: year 1827), his inventory record, calls him Jean GUILLOT m. d.Marie PITRE, & lists his children as Olivier, Isidore, Jean Pierre, Narcisse, Jean Baptiste, Marie Carmelite m. George FABRE, Héloise m. Basile Hyacinth RICHARD, d. Jean Charles m. Théodore[sic] DANNIS.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 45, 54, 81, 118, 162.

Marguerite BOUDREAUX--her second husband is Joseph FAYTE, but says nothing of his other children  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 45.

08.  Not in Wall of Names.  Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 392, Family No. 480, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Pierre GUILLOT, gives his parents' names, & says his godparents were Pierre BOUDROT & Victoire BRAUD; BRDR, 2:349, 593 (ASC-2, 50), his marriage record, calls him Pedro GUILLOT, does not gives his or his wife's parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Pierre BOURQUE & Juan VINES.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 43, 60, 93, 135, 175.

His parents' names can be found not only in Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, but also in daughter Véronique-Clémence's baptismal record, dated 5 Apr 1801, in BRDR, 2:349 (ASM-1, 197), & calls them Reynaldo GUILLOT & Francisca BOURQUE.  Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 391, Family No. 480, says his father, René, fils was born in c1726 but gives no birthplace, son of René GUILLOT & Marguerite DOIRON, was a ploughman, that he married his first wife, Marie-Rose DAIGLE, born on 31 Mar 1732, at St.-Charles-des-Mines, daughter of François DAIGLE & Marie BOUDROT, on 15 Feb 1751 on Île St.-Jean, that his first wife died on 11 Mar 1759, age 26, at the hospital in St.-Malo, doubtlessly from the rigors of the crossing to St.-Malo, & that his father remarried to Françoise BOURG, born in c1739, no birthplace & no parents' names given, widow of Joseph NAQUIN, on 5 Aug 1760 at St.-Suliac, France, & that Pierre had 9 half- & full siblings born in Acadia or France between c1755 & 1773, none of whom emigrated to LA; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 49-50, Family No. 97, says his father, René GUILLOT, was born in c1731 but gives no birthplace, son of René GUILLOT & Marguerite DOIRON, was a ploughman, that he married his first wife, Marie-Rose DAIGLE, born on 31 Mar 1732, at St.-Charles-aux-Mines, daughter of François DAIGLE & Marie BOUDROT, on 15 Feb 1751 on Île St.-Jean, that this first wife died on 11 Mar 1759, age 26, at the hospital in St.-Malo, that his father married his mother, Françoise BOURG, born in c1739 but gives no birthplace or parents' names, widow of Joseph NAQUIN, on 5 Aug 1760 at St.-Suliac, France, that she died at age 35 & was buried on 28 Sep 1774 at Archigny, Vienne, Poitou, that his father died at age 50 & was buried on 28 Jun 1781, at Cenan, Poitou, & that Pierre had 4 siblings born at Trigavou, near St.-Malo, between 1761 & 1771, none of whom emigrated to LA.  His father's death at Archigny, Poitou, in 1774 shows that he & his family were part of the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s.  

Is such a thoroughly documented Acadian immigrant from France not in Wall of Names because he is not on any of the Seven Ships passenger lists?
