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

HENRY

[onh-REE, HEN-ree]

ACADIA

Robert Henry or Henri, born at Rouen, France, in c1643, came first to Canada, where he served as a domestic servant for Quentin Moral.  He was confirmed in the Catholic faith at Trois-Rivière in 1666, so he likely had been a Huguenot.  He moved to Chignecto in c1676 and two years later married Marie-Madeleine, daughter of Pierre Godin dit Châtillon, a native of Québec who had also moved to Chignecto.  Robert and Marie-Madeleine were counted at Port-Royal in 1686, but by 1693 they had moved to the Minas Basin.  They eventually settled at Cobeguit.  They had 13 children, including six sons, all of whom married and created families of their own.  Five of their daughters married into the Doiron, Pitre, Druce, Radoux, Pinet, and Guérard families.  

Oldest son Martin dit Robert, born probably at Chignecto in c1679, married Marie, daughter of Étienne Hébert of Minas, probably at Minas in c1699.  They had nine children, including five sons who married into the Thériot, Aucoin, Dugas, Benoit, and Thibodeau families.  Their three daughters married into the Carret, Breau, and Aucoin families.  By the early 1750s, the family had moved from Cobeguit to Île St.-Jean, today's Prince Edward Island, probably to escape British authority.  Martin dit Robert lived into his 80s and died during Le Grand Dérangement.

Jean dit le Vieux, born at Chignecto or Port-Royal in c1684, married Marie, daughter of Jean Hébert, perhaps at Cobeguit in c1717.  They, too, moved from Cobeguit to Île St.-Jean by the early 1750s.  Jean dit le Vieux also died during Le Grand Dérangement.  

Germain, born probably at Port-Royal in c1686, married Cécile, daughter of Michel Deveau, date unrecorded.  They also moved to Ile St.-Jean by the early 1750s.  Like his older brother Martin dit Robert, Germain also died during Le Grand Dérangement.  

Pierre dit Robert, born probably at Minas in c1700, married Marguerite, daughter of Mathieu Brasseur, at Grand-Pre in May 1736.  Unlike his older brothers, Pierre dit Robert did not take his family to Île St.-Jean but remained in the Minas Basin.

Antoine, born probably at Minas in c1704, married Claire Hébert in c1725.  He died before May 1759 in his mid-50s.

Youngest son Joseph dit Petit Homme, born at either Minas or Cobeguit in c1707, married Christine dite Catherine, daughter of Jean Pitre, in c1729, and died before January 1761, also in his mid-50s.  

One of Robert Henry's daughters, Madeleine dit Robert, born probably at Port-Royal in c1690, married twice, first to Englishman Benjamin Druce in c1711 then to Frenchman Jean-Baptiste Redoux in c1715--after she had given birth to an illegitimate son in November 1709 whom she named Jean-Baptiste.  The boy took his mother's surname and married Marie-Madeleine, daughter of Joseph Mius d'Azy and Marie Amireau, in c1733.  Jean-Baptiste and his family also moved to Île St.-Jean.  Madeleine dit Robert settled with her second husband at St.-Esprit, Île Royale, where she was counted in February 1752, a widow again. 

In 1755, descendants of Robert Henry of Rouen could be found on Île St.-Jean and Île Royale, as well as at Minas.  Those who may have remained at Cobeguit escaped from there to Île St.-Jean when Le Grand Dérangement commenced.  

~

Henry is a common name in francophone Europe.  There were at least two other Henry families in greater Acadia, probably no kin to Robert of Rouen, and a female Henry who also came early to the colony:  

Jeanne Henry, born in France in c1656, married Jean, son of Jean Gaudet and widower of Francoise Comeau, at Port-Royal in c1680.  Jeanne died at Port-Royal before 1693.  She probably was not kin to Robert of Rouen.  

Jean Henry dit Maillardet or Maillardé, described as a stone mason, master tailor, and ploughman, born at Orvin, Switzerland, in c1726, married Anne Barbe, a fellow Swiss from Bienne, in c1751. They likely were so-called Foreign Protestants who settled first at Halifax before deserting to Port-Lajoie on Île St.-Jean.  Jean and Anne had two children, including a son, Louis-Gervais, born at Port-Lajoie only 17 days after a French official counted the family there in August 1752.

Sieur Edmond Henry, born in c1728, was a master surgeon.  He settled on the French-controlled island of Île St.-Pierre, south of Newfoundland, probably after Le Grand Dérangement.

LE GRAND DÉRANGEMENT

Le Grand Dérangement of the 1750s scattered these families even farther:   

Especially destructive to the family was the forced deportation from the Maritime islands to France in late 1758.  Entire Henry families perished in the operation. ...

At least one Henry did well in France.  According to a recent study of Acadian exiles in the mother country, " ... a certain Basile Henry made a request to the Nantes municipal council in November 1782, asking to be exempted from a tax for relatively affluent people.  This shows that he was reasonably prosperous, as were other Acadians who succeeded in opening small businesses."  Basile also served as "Deputy of the Acadians in Nantes and also Deputy-Inspector of Public Works in Nantes."  Not surprisingly, when the Spanish government offered the Acadians in France an opportunity to emigrate to their Louisiana colony, Basile and his family were among the hundreds of Acadians who chose to remain in the mother country. ...

LOUISIANA:  RIVER SETTLEMENTS

Henrys were among the early settlers of Acadia, but they came "late" to Louisiana.  All of the Acadian Henrys who emigrated to the colony--at least 48 of them--arrived aboard five of the Seven Ships from France in 1785.  Many of them chose to settle on the river:  

A family and a wife crossed on Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in July.  They followed the majority of the passengers from their ship to Manchac, south of Baton Rouge:

Joseph Henry, age 42, crossed with wife Cécile Breau, age 39, and six children--Jean-Laurent, age 19, Joseph-Suliac, age 14, Marie-Josèphe, age 7, Pierre-Similien, age 5, Anne-Françoise, age 3, and infant Madeleine-Apolline.  They remained at Manchac and Baton Rouge and had another daughter but no more sons.  Daughter Marie-Josèphe married into the Breaux family and settled on the river, as did her brothers.  Marie-Josèphe died a widow near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in November 1854, in her late 70s.  Anne-Françoise and Madeleine-Apolline probably died young.  

Élisabeth, or Isabelle, Henry, age 37, crossed with husband Joseph Aucoin, age 37, and five children, ages 11 to 3.  They moved to upper Bayou Lafourche in the 1790s, where Élisabeth died in her early 40s and her husband remarried.  

.

Two families and a wife crossed on Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in August.  They followed most of the passengers from their ship to Baton Rouge:

Pierre Henry, age 61, crossed with wife Marguerite Trahan, age 54, and son Cyrille-François, age 18.  

Charles Henry of Cobeguit, age 53, crossed with third wife Marie LeBlanc, age 45, three daughters by earlier wives--Marie-Madeleine, called Madeleine, age 23, Rose-Anastasie, age 14, and Ursule, age 10--and stepson Charles Robichaux, age 17.  Marie was pregnant on the voyage; their son Jean-Baptiste was born at Baton Rouge in October.  Charles and Marie remained at Baton Rouge, where he died in April 1794; the priest who recorded his burial said that Charles was 65 years old when he died, but he was closer to 62.  Daughter Ursule settled on upper Bayou Lafourche. 

Marie Henry, age 40, crossed with husband François Arbour of Québec, age 45, and three sons, ages 18, 15, and 13.  They remained at Baton Rouge.  

.

Henrys were especially numerous aboard the sixth ship, La Ville d'Archangel, which reached New Orleans in December.  They followed the majority of their fellow passengers to the new Acadian community of Bayou des Écores, present-day Thompson's Creek, north of Baton Rouge.  Three of the passengers, Jean, Charles, and Pierre, were brothers.  Some families moved downriver to Baton Rouge during the late 1780s, if they had not gone there in the first place.  In 1794, two hurricanes devastated the bayou-side community, and most of the Acadians who had remained at Bayou des Écores abandoned the settlement, some moving all the way down to upper Bayou Lafourche:

Madeleine Henry, age 58, crossed with husband Charles Thibodeau, age 63, and fives children, ages 22 to 15.  Most of her children married at Bayou des Écores, and some of them moved on to the upper Lafourche.  

Jean Henry, age 53, crossed with wife Marie Pitre, age 53, his unmarried sister Marie, age 55, and three children--Maximilien, age 24, Élisabeth, or Isabelle-Modeste, age 21, and Marie-Rose, age 18.  They settled at Baton Rouge and had no more children in Louisiana.  Daughter Élisabeth married into the Theriot and Longuépée families, and Marie-Rose into the Arbour family.  They remained on the river.  Maximilien married at St.-Jacques on the Acadian Coast and may have lived at New Orleans in the early 1800s before returning to the Baton Rouge area.  

Anne Henry, age 52, crossed with husband Charles Pitre, age 56, and three children, ages 19, 15, and 11.  

Pierre Henry, age 51, crossed with wife Marguerite-Josèphe Bourg, age 48, and son Jean, age 21.  

Charles Henry, age 49, crossed with wife Françoise Hébert, age 47, and three children--Françoise-Victoire, age 15, Marguerite-Toussainte, age 13, and Charles, fils, age 9.  They settled at Baton Rouge.  Charles, père died by July 1788, when wife Françoise was listed in a Baton Rouge census as a widow.  Daughter Françoise-Victoire married into the Usé family, and Marguerite-Toussainte married a Broussard.  They remained on the river.  Charles, fils also remained on the river and may have died young.  

Another Charles Henry, age 49, crossed with wife Marguerite-Josèphe Thériot, age 50, his mother-in-law Françoise Guérin of Cobeguit, age 75, his sister-in-law Marie Thériot, age 52, and three children--Marie-Josèphe, age 22, Jean-Baptiste-Théodore, age 18, and Jeanne-Françoise, age 17.  They also settled at Baton Rouge and had no more children in Louisiana.  Marie-Josèphe married into the Daigle family, and Jeanne-Françoise married a Robichaux.  They moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche, as did brother Jean-Baptiste-Théodore.

Barthélémy Henry, age 41, crossed with wife Anne Bourg, age 39, and four children--François-Barthélémy, age 15, Jacques-François, age 12, Barthélémy-Charles, age 9, and Marie-Jeanne, age 3.  Barthélémy and Anne had more children in Louisiana and moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche.  

Marguerite Henry, age 40, crossed with husband Ambroise Longuépée, age 52, and a 20-year-old son.  They moved to Baton Rouge.  

Marguerite-Josèphe Henry, age 35, crossed with the family of her mother Susanne Pitre of Cobeguit, age 55, her stepfather Pierre Hébert of Cobeguit, age 50, and six step- and half-siblings, ages 24 to 11.  Marguerite-Josèphe may not have married. 

Marguerite-Pélagie Henry of Cobeguit, age 34, crossed with husband François-Xavier Bourg of Cobeguit, age 44, Charles Bourg of Cobeguit, age 51, one of her husband's cousins, Charles's wife Marguerite LeBlanc of Rivière-aux-Canards, age 40, and seven children, some hers and some only his from a previous, ages 15 to infancy.  They moved on to the upper Lafourche.  

Anne-Josèphe Henry of Pigiguit, age 33, Marguerite-Pélagie's sister and widow of Théodore Thériot, crossed with a 4-year-old daughter.  Anne-Josèphe remarried to Jean-Baptiste, son of fellow Acadian Alexandre Boudreaux, at either Manchac or Baton Rouge in February 1786, so she and her daughter may have gone there instead of to Bayou des Écores.  They moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche in the 1790s.  

Pierre Henry of Île St.-Jean, age 28, full brother of Anne-Josèphe, crossed with two Henry half-sisters--Françoise, age 23, and Angélique, age 21.  Pierre, Françoise, and Angélique married fellow passengers at New Orleans soon after they reached the colony.  Françoise wed Joseph, son of fellow Acadian Joseph Aucoin, and Angélique wed François-Étienne, son of fellow Acadian Pierre Hébert in January 1786.  Both families moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche, as did half-brother Pierre.  

.

Many of the Henrys from France remained on the river, settling in what became West Baton Rouge, Iberville, and Ascension parishes:   

Descendants of Charles HENRY (c1732-1794; Robert)

Charles, son of Joseph dit le Petit Homme Henry and Christine dite Catherine Pitre, born at Cobeguit in c1732, followed his family to Île St.-Jean in the early 1750s and married Françoise-Josèphe Thériot probably on the island.  The British deported them to France in 1758.  They landed at Cherbourg; however, Françoise-Josèphe may not have survived the crossing or died soon after they reached France.  Charles remarried to Marie-Madeleine, daughter of fellow Acadian René Bernard, at Cherbourg in January 1761.  Charles worked as a sailor in France.  In the early 1770s, he and his second wife were part of an Acadian settlement scheme in Poitou and, after the scheme failed, retreated with other Acadians to the port city of Nantes, where Charles remarried again--his third marriage--to fellow Acadian Marie LeBlanc, widow of Charles Robichaud, at St.-Martin-de-Chantenay in October 1784.  With four children, including three daughters from Charles's second wife and stepson Charles Robichaud, fils, they sailed to Louisiana aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and followed the majority of their fellow passengers to Manchac, south of Baton Rouge.  Marie had been pregnant on the voyage; a son was born to them at Manchac.  Charles's daughters by his second wife married into the Boudreaux, Bourgeois, Dubois, and Fournier families and settled on the river and on upper Bayou Lafourche.  Charles died at Baton Rouge in April 1794; the priest who recorded his burial said that Charles was 65 years old when he died, but he was closer to 62.  

Jean-Baptiste, by his father's third wife, born at Manchac in October 1785, married Marie Christine, called Christine, daughter of fellow Acadian François Alexandre Daigre, probably at Baton Rouge in the early 1800s.  Their son François was born near Baton Rouge in July 1809, and Jean Baptiste, fils, also called Jean Marie, in December 1813.  Their daughter married a Daigre cousin.  Jean Baptiste, père died in Iberville Parish in June 1832; the St. Gabriel priest who recorded his burial said that Jean Baptiste was 45 years old when he died, but he was 46.  

François married Marie Aureline, called Aureline, daughter of fellow Acadian Grégoire Alexis Lejeune of West Baton Rouge Parish, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in April 1837.  They settled in West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their son Evariste was baptized at the Baton Rouge church, age 5 months, in December 1838, and Bélisaire, age unrecorded, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in July 1841.  Their daughter married into the Labauve family.  François remarried to Julie Amelie Lejeune, widow of Étienne Richard of West Baton Rouge Parish, at the Baton Rouge church in September 1844.  Their son Élie Anatole was born in West Baton Rouge Parish in July 1846.  In August 1850, the federal census taker in West Baton Rouge Parish counted 4 slaves--all female, all black except for 1 mulatto, ranging in age from 40 to 5--on François Henry's farm.  In July 1860, the federal census taker in West Baton Rouge Parish counted 4 slaves again--a male and 3 females, all black, ages 25 to 1 1/2--on François Henry's farm.  François remarried--his third marriage--to Ernestine, daughter of fellow Acadian Nicolas Robichaux and widow of Rosémond Aucoin, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in November 1865; François was 56 years old at the time of the wedding.  She gave him another daughter. 

During the War of 1861, Evariste, by his father's first wife, served in Company H of the 4th Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in West Baton Rouge Parish, which fought in Mississippi, Tennessee, Louisiana, Alabama, and Georgia.  Evariste was wounded at the Battle of Shiloh in April 1862 and may not have returned to his unit.  Evariste married Marie Eléonore, daughter of André Lemoine, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in January 1865; Marie's mother was a Daigre.  Their son Paul Ernest was born near Brusly in November 1869.  Evariste worked as a store clerk after the war. 

During the War of 1861, Bélisaire, by his father's first wife, served in the Orleans Guard Battalion Louisiana Infantry and in Company A of the 30th Regiment/Battalion Louisiana Infantry, raised in Orleans Parish, which fought in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee.  Bélisaire was captured near Atlanta, Georgia, in August 1864.  The federals sent him to Louisville, Kentucky, before transferring him to the prisoner of war compound at Camp Chase, Ohio, where he was held for the rest of the war.  He was released from Camp Chase in early June 1865.  Bélisaire married Rose Letaive probably in West Baton Rouge Parish after he returned from the war.

Jean Marie married cousin Julienne Celima, Celina, or Céline, daughter of Jean Henry of Ascension Parish, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in November 1842.  Their daughters married into the Sanchez and Swear families.  Jean Marie may have fathered no sons, so this line of the family, except for its blood, probably did not survive. 

Descendants of Maximilien HENRY (1760-; Robert, Martin dit Robert, Jean dit Le Neveu)

Maximilien, son of Jean Henry and Marie Pitre, was born at Pleurtuit, near St.-Malo, France, in May 1760.  Still a bachelor, he sailed with his parents and sisters to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and followed them to Bayou des Écores.  He married Adélaïde, daughter of French Creole Saturnin Bruno, at St.-Jacques on the river in October 1792; Adélaïde's mother was a Léger.  Spanish officials counted them at Baton Rouge soon after their marriage.  During the late 1790s and early 1800s, they lived for a time in New Orleans before returning to the Baton Rouge area.  Their daughter married into the Mahier family.

Louis-Isidore, called Isidore, born in September 1800 and baptized at New Orleans in February 1802, married fellow Acadian Arthémise Daigre at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in March 1841.  Their son Théodule was born near Baton Rouge in October 1841, Oscar in July 1843, Louis Largus in September 1844, and Jean Baptiste in November 1847. 

Descendants of Jean HENRY (c1764-?; Robert, Martin dit Robert, Jean dit Le Neveu)

Jean, son of Pierre Henry and Marguerite-Josèphe Bourg, was born in France in c1764.  Still a bachelor, he sailed with his parents to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and followed them to Bayou des Écores.  He may have been the Jean Henry who married ____ Rigart and settled downriver at Ascension.

Jean Marc married Hermengilde, daughter of fellow Acadian Édouard Godin, at the Donaldson church, Ascension Parish, in June 1816.  Their son Julien was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in February 1821, so they may have lived for a time on Bayou Lafourche.  Their daughters married into the Brasset or Brasseaux, Comeaux, and Henry families.

Jean-Laurent HENRY (1765-?; Robert, Martin dit Robert, François)

Jean-Laurent, eldest son of Joseph Henry and Cécile Breau, was born at St.-Suliac, near St.-Malo, France, in August 1765.  In the early 1770s, his family was part of a failed settlement scheme in Poitou.  He retreated with them to the port city of Nantes in early 1776, accompanied them to Louisiana aboard Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and followed them to Manchac.  He married Marine, daughter of fellow Acadian Hyacinthe Landry, at nearby Ascension in November 1803; he was in his late 30s at the time of the wedding.  Marine was a native of Louisiana.  One wonders if they were that rare Acadian couple who had no children. 

Descendants of Joseph-Suliac HENRY (1770-1804; Robert, Martin dit Robert, François)

Joseph-Suliac, second son of Joseph Henry and Cécile Breau, was born at St.-Suliac, near St.-Malo, France, in August 1770.  In the early 1770s, he participated with his parents in a failed Acadian settlement scheme in Poitou and retreated with them to the port city of Nantes.  He went with them to Louisiana aboard Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and followed them to Manchac, where he married Marie-Rosalie, called Rosalie, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean-Charles Comeaux, in February 1800.  Rosalie was a native of Louisiana.  Joseph-Suliac died at Manchac in August 1804; the priest who recorded his burial said that Joseph "came from New Orleans, very ill," and was 30 years old when he died, but he was 34.  One wonders if he, too, died of yellow fever, like his younger brother Pierre-Similien, who died of the dreaded disease in early September of that year.  

1

Older son Joseph-Similien, born at Manchac in December 1800, married cousin Marie Séraphine, called Séraphine, daughter of fellow Acadian Arsène Braud, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in January 1826.  Their son Joseph, fils was born near St. Gabriel in February 1832, Oscar in July 1841, and Eugène Denis died in October 1842, age 2 weeks.  Their daughters married into the LeBlanc, Roth, and Trahan families.  Joseph Similien remarried to Marie Azélie, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Landry and widow of Valéry Trahan, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in January 1845 or 1846.  In July 1850, the federal census taker in Iberville Parish counted 11 slaves--6 males and 5 females, all black except for 1 mulatto, ranging in age from 80 to 1--on Joseph Henry's farm next to A. Breaux, perhaps his former father-in-law.  In July 1860, the federal census taker in Iberville Parish counted 6 slaves--2 males and 4 females, all black, ages 50 to 24, living in 6 houses--on Joseph Henri's farm. 

Joseph, fils, by his father's first wife, married Ernestine, daughter of fellow Acadian Laurent Daigre, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in April 1853.  Joseph, fils died near St. Gabriel in February 1855; he was only 23 years old.   His family line probably died with him. 

2

Younger son Joseph, born posthumously at St.-Gabriel in October 1804, may have died young. 

Pierre-Similien HENRY (1779-1804; Robert, Martin dit Robert, François)

Pierre-Similien, third and youngest son of Joseph Henry and Cécile Breau, was born at St.-Similien, Nantes, France, in May 1779.  He sailed with his family to Louisiana aboard Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and followed them to Manchac, where he married Adélaïde, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean-Baptiste Dupuis, in September 1803.  Adélaïde was a native of Louisiana.  Pierre-Similien died of yellow fever "on [his] father's plantation" at Manchac in September 1804; he was only 25 years old.  

Cyrille-François HENRY (1767-?; Robert, Germain)

Cyrille-François, son of Pierre Henry and Marguerite Trahan, was born at St.-Servan, near St.-Malo, France, in August 1767.  In the early 1770s, he participated with his parents in a failed settlement scheme in Poitou and retreated with them to the port city of Nantes.  He went with his now elderly parents to Louisiana aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and followed them to Baton Rouge, where they were counted in 1788.  He may not have married.  

Charles HENRY, fils (c1776-?; Robert, Martin dit Robert, Jean dit Le Neveu)

Charles, fils, son of Charles Henry and Françoise Hébert, was born in France in c1776.  He sailed with his family to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and followed them to Bayou des Écores.  He probably was one of the children in his widowed mother's household at Baton Rouge in 1788 and may have died young.  

Other HENRYs on the River

Area church and civil records make it difficult to link many Henrys on the river with known Acadian lines of the family there.  Considering the commonality of the surname, one wonders if some of them were even Acadian.  One suspects that some of the Henrys who lived on the river, especially in Pointe Coupee Parish, during the post-war period were Afro Creoles who had been owned and set free by members of the Henry family, or, more likely, were sons, daughters, or grandchildren of slaves or free men of color named Henry: 

George Henry married Marie Madeleine Valsinger probably at Baton Rouge by the 1810s.  Their son Michel Henry Paul was born at Baton Rouge in September 1821. 

John Henry married Loviana Henry probably at Baton Rouge by the 1820s.  Was he the John Henry who died near Baton Rouge in November 1855?  If so, he was 64 years old when he died. 

James Henry's son Louis, born in c1825, was baptized at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, age 7, in April 1832.  Was James actually Jacques, son of Barthélémy Henry?

John Henry married Nora ____.  Their son John, Jr. was born in St. James Parish in March 1858 but died in June 1859.  Was John, Sr. an Acadian Henry?

In August 1860, the federal census taker in West Baton Rouge Parish counted 6 slaves--1 male and 5 females, all black, ranging in age from 34 to 3, and living in 2 houses--on R. J. Henry's farm. 

Doralie Henry married Charles Gilbert at the Vacherie church, St. James Parish, in April 1867.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names, so one wonders if Doralie was an Acadian Henry

Clément, son of Mary Henri or Henry, married Sophie Ginvais or Gravois, daughter of Sophie ____, at the Convent church, St. James Parish, in January 1868.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's fathers' names.  Their son Jean Baptiste Clément was born near Convent in October [1869]. 

Bastien Henri married Angèle or Angela Gravois.  Their son Henri was born near Convent, St. James Parish, in March 1868. 

Charles Henry married Augustine Water.  Their son Charles, fils was born in Pointe Coupee Parish in May 1868. 

Henriette Henry "of this Parish" married Jean Louis Louis "of this Parish" at the Vacherie church, St. James Parish, in June 1868.  The priest who recorded t he marriage did not give the couple's parents' names, but he did note that the marriage legitimized the couple's two sons, ages 4 1/2 and 3. 

Henry Henry married Marie Eulalie ____.  Their son Joseph was born in St. James Parish in September 1868. 

Charles Henry married Eulalie Jasmin at the St. James church, St. James Parish, in April 1869.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Désiré[e], fils, 19-year-old daughter of Désiré Henry and Angelina ____, married Joseph E., 20-year-old son of Jacques Dorval, at the Pointe Coupee church, Pointe Coupee Parish, in April 1869. 

Edda Henri or Henry gave birth to son Joseph near Convent, St. James Parish, in July 1869.  The priest who recorded the boy's baptism did not give the father's name or the mother's parents' names. 

Marguerite Henry married Jules Laurent at the Pointe Coupee church, Pointe Coupee Parish, in September 1869.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Amelie Henry married John Lee at the Pointe Coupee church, Pointe Coupee Parish, in December 1869.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names, but he did note that the marriage legitimized the couple's 12 children, ages 30 to 4. 

Thomas Henri married Jeanne Leveille.  Their son Jean Baptiste was born near Convent, St. James Parish, in November 1869. 

Vincent Henry married Adelina Robillard at the Pointe Coupee church, Pointe Coupee Parish, in December 1869.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Désiré Henry married Angeline Bailey at the Pointe Coupee church, Pointe Coupee Parish, in February 1870.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Léon Henry married Pauline Dorval at the Pointe Coupee church, Pointe Coupee Parish, in February 1870.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Sylvain, son of Henry Henry and Eléonore ____, married Zulmé, daughter of Pierre Boude and Marie Joseph, at the Vacherie church, St. James Parish, in May 1870. 

Frank Henry died in Ascension Parish in September 1870.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names, said that Frank died at "age 4 years." 

LOUISIANA:  LAFOURCHE VALLEY SETTLEMENTS

Some of the Henrys who came to Louisiana from France in 1785 chose to go to upper Bayou Lafourche. 

Pierre Henry, age 14, crossed on La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in August.  With him was his mother Marie-Yvette Hébert, age 33, and his widowed maternal grandfather Charles Hébert, age 61. 

Madeleine Henry, age 45, crossed on Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in September.  With her were husband Jean-Baptiste Darembourg, age 61, and an 18-year-old daughter. 

Joseph-Philippe Henry, age 22, crossed on Le St.-Rémi with wife Marie-Josèphe Thibodeau, age 32, and two Metra stepsons, ages 3 and 1.

The Henrys who went directly to Bayou Lafourche created no new family lines there: 

Descendants of Joseph-Philippe HENRY (1762-1853; Robert, Germain)

Joseph-Philippe, son of Pierre Henry and Marguerite Trahan of Île St.-Jean, was born at St.-Suliac, France, near St.-Malo, in July 1762.  In the early 1770s, he participated with his parents in a failed Acadian settlement in Poitou and retreated with them to the port city of Nantes, where he married Marie-Josèphe, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Thibodeau and widow of Nicolas Metra, at St.-Martin-de-Chantenay in April 1785.  They sailed to Louisiana aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  With them were two of Joseph's stepsons, Nicolas and Joseph Metra; Joseph was still an infant and either died on the voyage or soon after reaching the colony.  Joseph-Philippe and his little family followed the majority of the passengers from their ship to upper Bayou Lafourche.  He and Marie-Josèphe had another child in Louisiana.  Their daughter married into the Boudreaux family.  Joseph Philippe died perhaps in Lafourche Parish and was buried near Labadieville, Assumption Parish, in October 1853 "during [a] yellow fever epidemic"; the priest who recorded his burial said that Joseph Philippe died at "age ca. 95 years," but he was "only" 91.  He seems to have had no sons who lived long enough to marry, so his line of the family, except for its blood, died with him. 

Pierre HENRY (c1771-?; Robert, ?)

Pierre, son of ____ Henry and Marie-Yvette Hébert, was born in France in c1771.  He followed his widowed mother and maternal grandfather, Charles Hébert, to Louisiana aboard La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  They went to upper Bayou Lafourche, where Pierre may have died young.  

~

During the late 1780s and the 1790s, Henrys who had settled on the river moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche, creating a second center of family settlement.  During the antebellum period, the Lafourche/Terrebonne valley Henrys outnumbered their cousins on the river:

Marguerite Pélagie Henry of Pigiguit, wife of Xavier Bourg, died in Lafourche Interior Parish in October 1822, in her early 70s.  

Ursule Henry, widow of Jean Constant Boudreaux and wife of Louis Dubois, died in Lafourche Interior Parish in December 1822.  The Thibodauxville priest who recorded her burial said that she was 42 years old when she died, but she was closer to 47.  

Anne Josèphe Henry of Pigiguit, sister of Marguerite Pélagie and widow of Jean Baptiste Boudreaux, died in Lafourche Interior Parish in February 1840.  The Thibodauxville priest who recorded her burial said that she was 100 years old when she died, but she was "only" 92.  

Descendants of Barthélemy HENRY (1745-?; Robert, Martin dit Robert)

Barthélémy, son of Pierre Henry and Anne Aucoin, born in Acadia in c1745, was living with his parents at Anse-de-la-Boullotierre on Île St.-Jean in 1752.  He followed his family to France in 1758-59 and lived with them in the St.-Malo area.  He married Anne, daughter of fellow Acadian Alexandre Bourg, at St.-Énogat, near St.-Malo, in February 1770.  He, his wife, and four children sailed to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and followed the majority of the passengers from their ship to Bayou des Écores.  By 1795, they had moved to upper Bayou Lafourche.  They had more children in Louisiana.

Henri's farm in the parish's Second Congressional District.  In June 1860, the federal census taker in Lafourche Parish counted a single slave--a 23-year-old black female--on Baptiste Henry's farm; was this Jean Baptiste?  In August 1860, the federal census taker in Assumption Parish counted 3 slaves--a male and 2 females, all black, ages 45, 43, and 23--on Jean Bte Henry's farm in the parish's Ward 6 along Bayou Lafourche. 

4a

Jean Baptiste Zéphirin died in Lafourche Interior Parish in May 1849.  The priest who recorded his burial said that Jean Baptiste died "at age 25 yrs.," but he was 27.  He did not marry.

Other HENRYs in the Lafourche/Terrebonne Valley

Area church and civil records make it difficult to link some Henrys in the Lafourche/Terrebonne valley with known Acadian lines of the family there.  One suspects that some of the Henrys who lived in the Bayou Lafourche valley during the post-war period were Afro Creoles who had been owned and set free by members of the Henry family, or, more likely, were sons, daughters, or grandchild of slaves or free men of color named Henry: 

Alexandre Henry married Elina Bertrand probably in Lafourche Interior Parish by the early 1830s.  

Alexander Henry married Acadian Rosalie Chiasson in a civil ceremony in Terrebonne Parish in May 1847.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  Their son George Washington was born in Terrebonne Parish in December 1849. 

François Henry married Acadian Rosalie Hébert and settled in Lafourche Interior Parish by the early 1850s. 

Thomas Henry died "during [a] yellow fever epidemic" in Lafourche Parish in September 1853.  He was only 42 years old.  The Thibodaux priest who recorded his burial did not give Thomas's parents' names or mention a wife, so Thomas may not have been an Acadian Henry

Jean Baptiste, son of Marie Henry, was born in Terrebonne Parish in August 1858.  The Houma priest who recorded the boy's baptism did not give the father's name or the mother's parents' names. 

Marcellin Henry married Acadian Gertrude Landry and settled in Lafourche Interior Parish.  Marcellin and Gertrude's daughters married into the Landry and Martin families in Lafourche and Terrebonne parishes during the early and late 1860s.  Their son Oville married Melasie, daughter of Acadian Evariste Mire, at the Chacahoula church, Terrebonne Parish, in June 1868. 

Joseph Henri, or Henry, married Acadian Melasie Savoie and settled near Lockport, Lafourche Parish, by the mid-1860s. 

Joseph, son of Adélaïde Min Henry, was born in Assumption Parish in March 1867.  The Plattenville priest who recorded the boy's baptism in September of that year did not give the father's name or the mother's parents' names. 

Joseph Henry married Marie Hortense ____ at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in November 1867.  The marriage record is virtually indecipherable, so the couple's parents' names may be lost to history. 

Guillaume Henri died near Montegut, Terrebonne Parish, in January 1868.  The priest who recorded his burial did not give Guillaume's parents' names, mention a wife, or even give his age at the time of his death. 

Francis, son of Henri Henry and Célestine Gabriel, married Sarah, also called Cora, daughter of Justine Mavigne Guillot, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in June 1869.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the bride's father's name. 

Adam Henry, age 22, married 18-year-old Julienne Brown, in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Parish in August 1869.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Jules Henri, or Henry, married Louise Verret.  Their son James was born near Montegut, Terrebonne Parish, in May 1870. 

LOUISIANA:  WESTERN SETTLEMENTS

Not until the eve of the War of 1861 did an Acadian Henry family settle west of the Atchafalaya Basin, but they did not remain there:

Descendants of Marcellus HENRY (?-; Robert, Jean dit le Vieux, Charles, Jean-Baptiste-Théodore, )

Marcellus, son of François Constant Henry and Louise Euphémie Dupré, born probably in Lafourche Interior Parish in the 1820s, married cousin Elisa, daughter of fellow Acadian Stanislas Boudreaux, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Parish, in June 1853; Elisa's mother, also, was a Dupré; the marriage was recorded in Terrebonne Parish as well.  Later in the decade, they moved to St. Mary Parish on lower Bayou Teche--the only Acadian Henrys to live west of the Atchafalaya Basin before the War Between the States--but they returned to the Montegut area of Terrebonne Parish by the mid-1860s.

Older son Eusèbe Trasimond was born in Terrebonne Parish in August 1856. 

2

Philemon was born near Pattersonville, St. Mary Parish, in March 1860. 

NON-ACADIAN FAMILIES in LOUISIANA

Most of the Henrys who settled in South Louisiana were not Acadians.  Henrys, including French and Germans, were some of the earliest arrivals in French Louisiana, and Spanish Enrriques and Hennriques, including Isleños from the Canary Islands, settled in Louisiana during the late colonial period: 

Nicolas Henry, native of Metz, Lorraine, and husband of Élisabeth Hamard, died at New Orleans in June 1729.  He had been in the colony at least since October 1725, when his daughter Marie-Françoise, age seven days, was buried at New Orleans.  

Louise Henry died at New Orleans in August 1731.  She was only 3 years old.  The priest who recorded her burial did not give her parents' names.  Was she a daughter of the now-deceased Nicolas Henry

Another Marie-Françoise Henry, daughter of Pierre Henry and Marie-Anne Pollerman, also was a native of Metz.  She married Joseph, son of Nicolas Maire of St.-Die, near Toul, France, at New Orleans in June 1754, and remarried to Nicolas, son of Pierre Dufour of Gourfaleur, near Coutances, France, at New Orleans in January 1761.  Nicolas was a soldier in Grandchamps's Company.  Nicolas, still a soldier and now in La Perierre's Company, remarried at New Orleans in April 1766, so Marie-Françoise had died by then. 

When Acadians came to Louisiana in the mid-1760s, Louis-Antoine Andry, whose surname sometimes was spelled Henrry, was an infantry lieutenant, a royal engineer, and eventually adjutant for the city of New Orleans.  It was Andry who led the Joseph Broussard dit Beausoleil party from New Orleans to the Attakapas country in the spring of 1765, and it was Andry who surveyed Bayou Teche all the way to the Gulf of Mexico to determine the best line of communications between the settlements on the Teche and the metropolis at New Orleans.  

Thomas Henri married Marie-Barbe Orinne and settled at Manchac, south of Baton Rouge, by the early 1770s.  Their son Jean-Thomas was born probably at Manchac in September 1772 and baptized at St.-Jean-Baptiste des Allemands on the Upper German Coast a few months later. 

Jean, son of Gaspar Henrich and Anne-Marie Jacob, married Catherine-Marguerite, daughter of fellow German Jacque Nachbar, at St.-Jean-Baptiste des Allemands in May 1774.  Their son Jean, fils was baptized at St.-Jean-Baptiste des Allemands, age unrecorded, in January 1775, and Jean-Jacob at New Orleans in February 1787. 

Jean-Marie, son of Jacques Andry or Henrry and Mariane Bellamy, a hairdresser and wig maker born at St.-Eustache, Paris, but whose father was from Normandy, married Marie-Louise, daughter of François-Claude Calandron or Calandrot of Paris, at New Orleans in April 1776; Marie-Louise's mother was a Talon from Mobile in present-day Alabama.  Son François was born at New Orleans in November 1796.  A daughter married into the Tonau or Tonneau family.  Son Louis-Alexandre le jeune, born probably in the city during the late 1770s, married Henriette, daughter of Jean Baptiste Carraby, probably at New Orleans in the late 1790s.  They moved to St. Landry Parish by the 1810s.  

Louis-Alexandre Henry of St.-Eustache, Paris, perhaps Jean-Marie's brother, married Eléonore-Antoinette De Gony probably at New Orleans in the 1770s.  Their daughters married into the Fosie and Lavergne families.  Daughter Louise, who married French Canadian Célestin Lavergne at New Orleans in March 1800, settled at Carencro on the northern edge of the Attakapas District.  Her succession record was filed at the Opelousas courthouse, St. Landry Parish, in November 1855.    

During the late 1770s, the first contingent of Isleños, Spanish-speaking natives of the Canary Islands, reached Louisiana.  Some settled at San Bernardo, below New Orleans; at Valenzuéla on upper Bayou Lafourche; and at Galveztown on the Amite River in present-day Ascension Parish.  Simon, son of Juan Henrriques and Maria Hernandez of the Canary Islands, married fellow Spaniard Mariana Garrido, widow of Juachin Sierra, at New Orleans in October 1778.  Their son Francisco Simon was born probably in the city in January 1781.  Simon and other Henrriques may have Gallicized their surname to Henri or Henry.  

Mateo Enrrique or Enriquez married Josepha Ydalga.  Their son Antonio was born probably at New Orleans in November 1781, and Juan Enrique in June 1793. 

Marie, daughter of Henrique Henry and Marie ____, married Jean, son of Florencia Clarhg, at Natchez (perhaps Fort San Luìs de Natchez, across the river from present-day Natchez, Mississippi) in March 1796.  

.

A German from the Rhine River valley settled at St.-Jean-Baptiste des Allemands on the Upper German Coast before moving to the Attakapas District in the 1790s:

Descendants of Jean HENRIQUE or HENRY (?-)

Jean, son of Adam or Martin Henrique or Henry and Barbra Hofman of Manheim, Rhine Palatinate, Germany, married Catherine Marguerite, called Marguerite, daughter of James Nopper of Strasbourg, and moved to the Attakapas District by the 1790s.  Their daughter married into the Miller and Ring families.  Jean remarried to Marie, native of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, daughter of Jacques Richard and widow of Thomas Camel, at Attakapas in August 1799; Marie probably was not Acadian. 

Jean-Baptiste, also called John, from his first wife, born at St.-Jean-Baptiste in August 1778 and baptized the following January by the "Curé of LaFourche," present-day Donaldsonville, married Marguerite, daughter of Acadian Jean-Baptiste Sonnier of St.-Jacques on the river, at Attakapas in August 1798.  They settled on Lake Palourde, at Grand Bois, and at Catahoula in what became St. Martin and St. Mary parishes.  Their son Jean-Baptiste III was born at Attakapas in October 1803, Peter or Pierre in March 1806 but died at age 5 in December 1811, Ursin was born in February 1808 but died at age 5 "at his parents' home" at Catahoula in June 1813, François or Nicolas Théodore or Théodule, called Théodule, was baptized at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, age 1, in April 1811 but died at age 19 months the following November, and François Valmont was born in April 1816.  Their daughters married into the Davis, Gashe, and Stephenson families. 

François Valmont married Anastasie Gashe in a civil ceremony in St. Mary Parish in June 1838.  Their son Jean was born in December 1839 and baptized at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, the following October, Justinien François, born in c1841, was baptized at the Pattersonville church, St. Mary Parish, age 6 years, 8 months, in July 1848, and Martial was born in March 1851 and baptized at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, the following August.

~

During the antebellum period, non-Acadian Henrys, who would have been called Foreign French by native Louisianians, emigrated to New Orleans from France and England: 

____ Henry, a 35-year-old sailor from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Water Witch out of Tampico, Mexico, in July 1837. 

François Henry, a 31-year-old laborer from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Vernon out of Le Havre, France, in July 1837. 

Élisabeth Henri, a 33-year-old laborer from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Rubicon out of Le Havre in November 1837.  Also aboard the same ship were Clémence Henris, age 8, and Louisa Henri, age 7, perhaps her daughters. 

Jean-Marie Henry, a 43-year-old cabinet maker from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Ann Penhallon out of Bordeaux, France, in January 1838.

2

Younger son Adolphe Célestin, born in St. Landry Parish in November 1818, also may have died young. 

.

A mysterious German or Swedish family named Henry appeared in the Opelousas area during the early 1810s:

Descendants of _____ HENRY (?-)

_____, son of Georges Henry and Sara ____ of "Hustin Hombri," Germany, married Rebecca, a native of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and daughter of George Poulin of South Carolina, and was living in St. Landry Parish by the 1810s.  The Opelousas priest who recorded son Manuel's baptism in 1813, Father Michel Bernard Barrière, formerly of Attakapas, described the boy's father as "a 'Rouleur ou Saxon ou Suedois" (Wanderer or a Saxon [northwest Germany] or Swedish); as I could not understand him well as he gave me these (grandparent's) names; I wrote what he told me, this man 'a donné ses enfants ca et la' (gave his child here and there); they are placed with various inhabitants families. ..."

1

Oldest son Manuel was born in c1808 and baptized at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, age 5, in November 1813.  Father Barrière noted that at the time of his baptism Manuel was "being reared at André Verani [a resident of Plaquemine Brûlé]."  Manuel married Mirtyle P., daughter of Acadian Pierre Nicolas Foret, at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, in December 1836.  They had a son named Émile M., probably Manuel.  Their daughter married into the Fontenot and Soileau families.  Manuels's succession recorded was filed at the Opelousas courthouse in February 1847; he would have been in his late 30s that year.  In October 1850, the federal census taker in St. Landry Parish counted 2 slaves--a 30-year-old female & a 12-year-old female, color not recorded--on the Widow Manuel Henry's farm. 

Émile M. married Caroline, daughter of French Creole Noël Jean Baptiste Soileau, at the Ville Platte church, then in St. Landry but now in Evangeline Parish, in May 1869.  They settled near Eunice. 

2

Louis was born in St. Landry Parish in June 1813.  In his lengthy description of the family appended to brother Manuel's baptismal record, Father Barrière added:  "... and this one--Manuel Henry--is brother, so they tell me, of Louis Henry baptized above. ..."  Louis married French Creole Emérante or Mérande, also called Aimée, Meche probably in St. Landry Parish by the early 1840s and settled near Grand Coteau.  Their son Pierre Aladin was born near Grand Coteau in August 1847, Louis, fils in November 1849, and O'Neal in May 1864.  They also had a son named André

André married Amelie or Emilia, daughter of Acadian Victor Treville Landry, at the Church Point church, then in St. Landry but now in Acadia Parish, in August 1868.  Their son Alcée was born near Church Point in June 1869. 

3

Jean Baptiste, called Baptiste, baptized at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, age 2 in March 1814, may have married Elizabeth Anderson in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in June 1832.  Their son Benjamin was born in St. Landry Parish in April 1841, and Bennet, perhaps Bernard, in April 1845.  Their daughter married into the Cole family. 

During the War of 1861, Benjamin, recorded as a resident of Bayou Chicot, served in Company F of the 8th Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in St. Landry Parish, which fought in Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania--one of General R. E. Lee's Louisiana Tigers.  Benjamin enlisted in June 1861 at Camp Moore, Tangipahoa Parish, and reported sick at Culpeper, Virginia, that summer.  He returned to his unit and was wounded in action at Marye's Heights, Fredericksburg, during the Chancellorsville Campaign in May 1863.  He again returned to his unit and surrendered with it at Appomattox Courthouse, Virginia, in April 1865.  Soon after he returned from Virginia, Benjamin married Susan Cole in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in August 1865. 

CONCLUSION

Henrys settled early in Acadia, but 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 Henrys in the Bayou State today.  Ten families came from France aboard five of the Seven Ships of 1785.  They settled on the river at Bayou des Écores, Baton Rouge, and Manchac, and on upper Bayou Lafourche.  By the mid-1790s, many had left the river and resettled on Bayou Lafourche, some of them as far down bayou into what became Lafourche Interior and Terrebonne parishes; during the antebellum period, the southeastern bayous and the coastal marshes became the larger center of Henry family settlement.  One Terrebonne valley family moved to lower Bayou Teche during the late antebellum period, the only Acadian Henry family to live west of the Atchafalaya Basin before the War Between the States, but they returned to the Montegut area of Terrebonne Parish by the mid-1860s. 

Henry is a common surname not only in France but also in the rest of Europe, so it should be no surprise that non-Acadians with the name and its various spellings settled in colonial Louisiana as early as the 1720s.  Most of them lived at New Orleans, but a few of them moved to the western prairies during the late colonial and early antebellum periods and settled in what became St. Landry, St. Martin, and St. Mary parishes.  Meanwhile, throughout the antebellum and into the post-war period, Foreign-French, German, and Anglo-American Henris and Henrys settled in many communities of South Louisiana.  Some of them were Afro Creoles either owned by members of the Henry family, or, more likely, children or grandchild of slaves or free men of color named Henry; they were especially numerous on the western prairies and in Pointe Coupee Parish. 

Judging by the number of slaves they owned during the late antebellum period, the Henrys of South Louisiana, both Acadian and non-Acadian, participated only peripherally in the South's antebellum plantation economy.  The largest slaveholder in the family--Acadian Joseph Similien Henry of Iberville Parish--held 11 slaves in 1850 but only 6 a decade later. 

Dozens of Henrys, both Acadian and non-Acadian, served Louisiana in uniform during the War Between the States. ...

The family's name also is spelled Anrry, Enri, Hanry, Hennry, Henrico, Henriquez, Henrry, Hervory.

NOTES

01.  Wall of Names, 45, calls her Angélique HENRY soeur [of Pierre]; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 500-02, Family No. 561; NOAR, 4:115, 161 (SLC, M5, 44), her marriage record, calls her Angela ENRRIQUE, calls her husband Francisco HIBERT, "native of Pruvale [sic, actually Ploubalay], Diocese of St.-Malo in France," gives her & his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Vicente LLORCA & Josef MARTINEZ; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:408, 419 (NO Ch.: v.2, p.44, #109), a copy of her marriage record, calls her Angela ENRRIQUE (HENRY), calls her husband Francisco HÉBERT, "native of Purvale, Diocese of St.-Malo," gives her & his parents names, but gives to witnesses to her marriage.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 59, 92, 134

She was 3 1/2 years older than her husband, who was a native of Ploubalay, also a suburb of St.-Malo, Brittany, France.  Did they have any children?  I have found no baptismal records for any children of this couple in local church records. 

Her sister Françoise married on the same day, at the same place.

02.  Wall of Names, 46, calls her Anne HENRY; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 154; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 490-91, Family No. 548; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 661-63, Family No. 771.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:81. 

For the fate of her family in the crossing to St.-Malo, see the footnote for her husband's profile; Book Five.  What happened to her in LA?  Did she survive the crossing from France?

03.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6L), calls her Anne-Françoise [HENRY], & lists her with her parents & 5 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 96-97, Family No. 178, her baptismal record, calls her Anne-Françoise HENRY, & gives her parents' names; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 2-3, calls her Anne-Françoise, son [Joseph HENRY's] fils[sic], age 3, on the embarkation list, Ana Fernanda, su [Josef HENRIQUE's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Anne-Françoise HENRY, his [Joseph HENRY's] daughter, age 3, on the complete listing, says she was in the 3rd Family aboard Le Bon Papa with her parents & 5 siblings, & give her baptismal year in France.  

What happened to her in LA?  

04.  Wall of Names, 45, calls her Anne-Josèphe HENRY veuve Théodore TÉRIOT; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 126, shows that on the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59 her father, age 40, survived, as did sister Pélagie, age 8, brother Pierre, age 3, & uncle Charles HENRY, age 23, but her mother, age 32, died in the hospital probably at St.-Malo 27 Mar 1759, 2 months after they reached France, & brother Charles, age 5, died at sea; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 500-02, Family No. 560; BRDR, 2:113-14, 376 (SGA-14, 2, #5), the record of her second marriage, calls her Ana Josefa HENRI, "widow of Théodoro TERIOT," calls her husband Juan Bautista BUDRO, "widower of Maria Modesta TRAHAN," gives her & his parents' names, says all parents were "of the Parish of the Assumption in Canada [which was l'Assomption, Pigiguit]," but gives no witnesses to her marriage; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:279 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #889), her death/burial record, calls her Anne Joseph HENRY, m. d.Jean BOUDREAUX, does not give her parents' names, & says she died "at age 100 yrs."

Her estimated birth year is based not on the LA censuses in which she is found but on the passenger list of one of the five ships of 1758.  

The record of her second marriage hints that she & her daughter may have gone not to Bayou des Écores with the majority of the passengers from their ship but to St.-Gabriel de Manchac at the southern end of the Baton Rouge District.  They were counted at Baton Rouge in a Spanish report of Jul 1788, but her remarriage date--27 Feb 1786--shows that they were there years before.  Marriages at Bayou des Écores tended to be performed by the Pointe-Coupée priest. 

She died in her early 90s, not at age 100.  Still...  

05.  Wall of Names, 44, calls him Barthélémy HENRY; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 117, shows that he lost both his parents, who were 54, & 4 of his 6 siblings as a result of the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59--his mother died at sea, his father in the hospital probably at St.-Malo 18 Feb 1759, brother Thimothé, age 12, died in hospital 9 Mar 1759, sister Jeanne, age 20, died in hospital 22 Feb, sister Élisabeth, age 16, also died in hospital, 8 Mar, & sister Marie-Josèphe, age 1, died at sea; only he, brother Paul, age 24, & sister Anastasie, age 18, survived the crossing; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 499-500, Family No. 559; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 481-82, Family No. 538.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:119. 

06.  Wall of Names, 44, calls him Barthélémy HENRY; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 481-82, Family No. 538, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Barthélémy-Charles HENRY, gives his parents' names, & says his godparents were Anselme LANDRY & Rose DOIRON; BRDR, 2:123-24, 376 (ASM-2, 35), his marriage record, calls him Bartholomé HENNRY, calls his wife Juana BOURQUE, says both "were baptised at Pledien [Pleudihen] Parish, Diocese of Dol in Britany, France," gives his & her parents' names, says all parents were Acadians, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Josef AUCOIN & Jean RICHARD; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 2:198 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #387), his death/burial record, calls him Barthélémi HENRY, says he died "at age 70 yrs.," but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 2:198 (Houma Ct.Hse.: Succ. #191), request for succession inventory, calls him Barthélémy HENRY d. Aug 1847 m. Gendre or Jeanne BOURG, & lists his children as d.Jean Baptiste m. Eve PERCLE, d.Marie m. Placide RICHARD, Rosalie, 43 yrs., Marcelin, 40 yrs., Bazile, 38 yrs., Malazie, 36 yrs., d.Constance m. d.Jean Baptiste LAPERUSS.   

07.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 8L), calls him Charles HENRY, & lists him with his third wife, 3 daughters, & a stepson; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 28, 192, the record of his second marriage, calls him Charles HENRY d'Acadie, veuf de Françoise-Josèphe TÉRRIOT, "Here for 2 years," calls his wife Marie BERNARD d'Acadie, gives his & her parents' names, says her mother was deceased at the time of the wedding, Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 58-59, Family No. 115; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 95-96, Family No. 176; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 30-31, calls him Charles HENRY, charpentier, age 51, on the embarkation list, Carlos HENRIQUE, on the debarkation list, & Charles HENRY, carpenter, age 51, on the complete listing, says he was in the 3rd Family aboard Le Beaumont with his second wife, 3 daughters, & a stepson, & the note--"This family went on to Attakapas on 18 October 1785"--& details his second marriage, including his parents' names but not his second wife's parents' names, & says son named Jean-Baptiste was born 28 Oct 1785 but gives no birthplace; BRDR, 2:376 (SJO-4, 5), his death/burial record, calls him Carlos HENRY, age 65 years & of Acadia, & gives his parents' names but not the name of either of his wives.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:82; Kinnaird, "Problems of Frontier Defense, 1792-94," 96; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 527; Winzerling Acadian Odyssey, 138, source of quotation. 

Despite the note on the passenger list of Le Beaumont that Charles & his family went to the Attakapas District soon after they reached LA, his death/burial record & the marriage records of his daughters in BRDR, 2:376-78, show that he & his family seem to have followed the majority of the passengers on Le Beaumont to Baton Rouge, not Attakapas.  

There were 3 Charles HENRYs at Baton Rouge in 1788, but, because of the number of family members given for him in the report, I am confident it was him. 

08.  Wall of Names, 45, calls him Charles HENRY; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 124, shows that in the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59, he & his wife Françoise, age 21, & daughter Marie, age 8 months, all survived; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 484-85, Family No. 541.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:80. 

09.  Wall of Names, 45, calls him Charles HENRY; BRDR, 1(rev.):102 (SGA-2, 163), his birth/baptismal record, calls him Charles HENRY, gives his parents' names, says they were "of Cobedie," & that his godparents were Jean HENRY & Cécile LEBLANC; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 126; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 490-91, Family No. 548; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 486-87, Family No. 542.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:81. 

I am only assuming that the Charles HENRY on the list of Acadians & inhabitants at Baton Rouge in 1788 & 1792 was this fellow, though it could very well have been the older Charles HENRY & his family, hence the ? marks.  There is the possibility that his family may have gone not to Bayou des Écores with the majority of the passengers from their ship but straight to Baton Rouge/Manchac from New Orleans. 

10.  Wall of Names, 45, calls him Charles HENRY.

There is the possibility that his family did not go to Bayou des Écores with the majority of the passengers from their ship but went straight to Baton Rouge/Manchac from New Orleans. 

11.  Wall of Names, 34 (pl. 8R), calls him Civil-François [HENRY], & lists him with his parents & no siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 504-05, Family No. 562, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Cyrille-Francois HENRY, gives his parents' names, says he was godson of Cyrille TÉRRIOT & Francoise CROIZOL, that his family resided at St.-Servan from 1759-72, & received permission to reside at Morlaix in Feb 1772; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 97-98, Family No. 180, calls him Cirille-Francois [HENRY], & details his family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s as well as it voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 40-41, calls him Civil-Francois, son [Pierre HENRY's] fils, marin, age 18, on the embarkation list, Cecilio Franco, su [Pedro HENRIQUE's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Civil-Francois HENRY, his [Pierre HENRY's] son, sailor, age 18, on the complete listing, says he was in the 45th Family aboard Le Beaumont with his parents & no siblings, &, calling him Cyrille-Francois [HENRY], says he was born in 1767 but gives no birthplace.

12.  Wall of Names, 28 (pl. 6R), calls her Élisabeth HENRRY, & lists her with her husband & 5 children; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 113, is detailed in the footnote to her brother Joseph's profile below; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 487-88, Family No. 544; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 20-21, Family No. 28; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 6-7, Family No. 12, calls her Élizabeth HENRY, says she was born in 1748 but gives no birthplace, gives her parents' names, details her marriage, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of son Joseph-Jean AUCOIN, baptized 8 Sep 1776, St.-Similien, Nantes, son Francois-Toussaint AUCOIN, baptized 31 Oct 1778, St.-Similien, Nantes, daughter Marie-Josèphe AUCOIN, died age 8 1/2 years & buried 5 Sep 1779, St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, daughter Marie-Modeste AUCOIN, baptized 27 Mar 1781, St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, & daughter Victoire-Claire AUCOIN, baptized 20 Jun 1773, St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, & details the family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s as well as its voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 6-7, calls her Élisabeth HENNRY, sa [Jh AU COING's] femme, age 35, on the embarkation list, Ysabel HENRIQUE, su [Josef AUCOIN's] muger, on the debarkation list, & Élizabeth HENRY, his [Joseph AUCOIN's] wife, age 35, on the complete listing, says she was in the 17th Family aboard Le Bon Papa with her husband & 5 children, details her marriage, gives her & her husband's parents' names, & says daughter Isabelle-Jeanne was baptized in 1773 but gives no place of baptism.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:117. 

13.  Wall of Names, 45, calls her Isabelle HENRY; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 493-95, Family No. 551; BRDR, 2:376, 687 (PCP-19, 22), the record of her first marriage, calls her Élisabeth HENRY "of St. Plertuis Parish, St. Malo," calls her husband Ambroise THERIOT, gives her & her his parents' names, says his parents were Acadians, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Maximilien HENRY [her brother] & Jean HENRY; BRDR, 2:376, 505 (SJO-3, 23), the record of her second marriage, calls her Élisabeth HENRY, calls her husband Javier-Pedrom LONGUÉPÉE, gives her & his parents' names, says all parents were "of St.-Malo," that they had to secure dispensation for 3rd degree of consanguinity, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Estevan DALCOURT & Matheo MANGAN.

There is a possibility that she & her family may have been among a minority of passengers from their ship who did not go to Bayou des Écores but went straight to Baton Rouge/Manchac from New Orleans in early 1786. 

Her first marriage was recorded at Pointe Coupée because the Baton Rouge/Manchac area did not have its own church until 1793.  The priest from Pointe Coupée crossed the river & administered the sacraments there until it did. 

14.  Wall of Names, 44, calls him François HENRY; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 481-82, Family No. 538, his birth/baptismal record, calls him François-Barthélemy HENRY, gives his parents' names, says his godparents were François BOURG & Marie BOURG, & says his family resided at Pleudihen from 1770-72. 

What happened to him in LA?

15.  Wall of Names, 45, calls her Françoise HENRY soeur [of Pierre]; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 500-02, Family No. 561; NOAR, 4:115, 228 (SCL, M5, 44), her marriage record, calls her Francisca ENRRIQUE, calls her husband Alexo OCUYAN, "native of St. Malo," does not give her parents' names, gives his mother's name but not his father's, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Vicente LLORCA & Josef MARTINEZ; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:22, 420 (NO Ch.: v.2, p.44, #108), a copy of her marriage record, calls her Francisca ENRIQUE, says she was "under 25 yrs." old at the time of the wedding, that her husband was "of St. Malo, of 21 yrs." old, gives her & his parents' names, but gives no witnesses to her marriage.

Her sister Angélique married on the same day, at the same place. 

16.  Wall of Names, 45, calls her Françoise-Victoire HENRY; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 484-85, Family No. 541; BRDR, 2:376, 712 (SGA-14, 17), her marriage record, calls her Francisca HENRY, calls her husband Juan-Bautiste USÉ, gives her & his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Carlos GUIDRY & Maturin-Carlos USÉ; BRDR, 2:712 (SJA-4, 6), her death/burial record, calls her Francisca USÉ "of LaFourche, married," but does not give her parents' names, her husband's first name, or her age at the time of her death.  

There is the possibility that she & her family did not go to Bayou des Écores with the majority of the passengers from their ship but went straight to Baton Rouge/Manchac from New Orleans. 

Why did the St.-Jacques priest who recorded her burial say that she was "of LaFourche," which is today's Donaldsonville, also called Ascension, in today's Ascension Parish?  Did that mean that Françoise & her husband lived in the Ascension District just upriver but closer to the St.-Jacques church than to the church at Ascension?  

What killed her at such a young age?  Childbirth? 

17.  Wall of Names, 44, calls him Jacques HENRY; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 481-82, Family No. 538, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Jacques-François HENRY, gives his parents' names, & says his godparents were Jacques UGUEN & Anne AUCOIN; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:280 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #695), his death/burial record, calls him Jacques HENRY, gives his parents' names but mentions no wife, & says he died "at age 60 yrs."

Did he ever marry?  If not, why not?

18.  Wall of Names, 45, calls him Jean HENRY; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 122, shows that he & his wife Marie, age 25, lost 2 of their 3 children in the crossing to St.-Malo, 1758-59--son Charles, age 4, & daughter Marie, age 2, both of whom died at sea, that only son Jean, age 6, survived with them; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 491-92, Family No. 549; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 493-95, Family No. 551.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:81. 

His wife died at Fort Bute, Manchac, south of Baton Rouge, in August 1786, so they may have been among a minority of passengers from their ship who did not go to Bayou des Écores but went straight to Baton Rouge/Manchac from New Orleans in early 1786. 

19.  Wall of Names, 45, calls him Jean HENRY; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 503, Family No. 561, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Jean-Vincent HENRY, gives his parents' names, & says his godparents were Vincent DUMONT & Marie PITRE.

20.  Wall of Names, 45, calls him Jean-Baptiste-Henry HENRY; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 486-87, Family No. 542; BRDR, 2:117, 377 (SJO-3, 4), the record of his first marriage, calls him Juan Bautista HENRY, calls his wife Marie-Félicité BOUDRAUT, gives his & her parents' names, says his parents were "of Parish of San Servand in France" & hers "of Parish of San Similien in France," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Josef VAHAMONDE, Juan-Maria TRAHAN, Pedro BROUSARD, & Angelela TERIOT; BRDR, 2:377, 562 (ASM-2, 85), the record of his second marriage, calls him Juan-Bautista-Théodore HENNRY "of St.-Malo, widower of Maria-Félicitas BOUDRAUX," calls his wife Ana NAQUIN "of St. Malo," gives his & her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Joseph BOUDRAUX & Ambroise HÉBERT; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:280 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #659), his death/burial record, calls him Jean Baptiste Théodor HENRY, but does not give his parents' names, mention a wife or wives, or give his age at the time of his death; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 2:199 (Houma Ct.Hse.: Succ. #44), a succession inventory record, calls him Jean Baptiste Théodore HENRY m. (1)d.Anne M. DUGAS[sic], m. (2) Anne NAQUIN, & lists his heirs as Charles M. HENRY m. Mélanie DUPRÉ, her second husband is Stanislas BOUDREAUX, Anne Marie HENRY m. Renaud Toussaint BOUDREAUX, Cécile, Maximin, "these last two are apparently grandchildren."

There is the possibility that his family may have gone not to Bayou des Écores with the majority of the passengers from their ship but straight to Baton Rouge/Manchac from New Orleans in early 1786. 

21.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6L), calls him Jean-Laurent [HENRY], & lists him with his parents & 5 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 496-97, Family No. 555; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 2-3, calls him Jean-Laurent, son [Joseph HENRY's] fils, charpentier, age 19, on the embarkation list, Juan Lorenzo, su [Josef HENRIQUE's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Jean-Laurent HENRY, his [Joseph HENRY's] son, carpenter, age 19, on the complete listing, says he was in the 3rd Family aboard Le Bon Papa with his parents & 5 siblings, & gives his birth year; BRDR, 2:376, 444 (ASC-2, 105), his marriage record, calls him Jean-Laurent HENRY, calls his wife Marine LANDRY, gives his & her parents' names, says his parents were "of France" & hers "of Iberville," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Firmin LANDRY & Jhs. LANDRY; BRDR, 4:321 (ASC-4, 157), his death/burial record, calls him Jean Laurent but lists him in the LANDRY section, says he was "age 56," gives his parents' names, says his father, Joseph HENRY, was deceased, & that Jean Laurent was spouse of Marine LANDRY.   

Why did he wait so long to marry?  His wife was a native of LA, born at St.-Gabriel d'Iberville, near Manchac.

22.  Wall of Names, 45, calls her Jeanne-Francoise HENRY; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 486-87, Family No. 542, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Jeanne-Francoise HENRY, gives her parents' names, says her godparents were Pierre LANDRY & Françoise TERRIOT, & that her family resided at Pleurtuit from 1759-61 & St.-Servan from 1761-72; BRDR, 2:377, 636-37 (SGA-14, 18), her marriage record, calls her Juana Maria HENRY, calls her husband Carlos ROBICHAUX, gives her & his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Honora BRAUX, "tutor of the groom," & Jaun HENRY, "tutor of the bride." 

There is the possibility that her family did not go to Bayou des Écores with the majority of the passengers from their ship but went straight to Baton Rouge/Manchac from New Orleans. 

Although her marriage was recorded at the St.-Gabriel, she probably was married at Manchac at the southern edge of the Baton Rouge District, where her family settled.  Baton Rouge did not have its own church until 1793, so priests from St.-Gabriel administered the sacraments there until it did. 

23.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6L), calls him Joseph HENRY, & lists him with his wife & 6 children; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 113, shows that in the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59, he lost his father, no age given, & 3 of his 6 siblings--brothers Alexis, age 5, & François, age 2, & sister Victoire, age 6, all lost at sea--that his mother, age 35, his brother Bazile, age 18, Bazile's wife Eulalie DUGAST, age 21, & sisters Anne-Marguerite-Josèphe, age 14, probably his twin, & Élisabeth, age 8, survived the crossing; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 487-88, Family No. 544; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 496-97, Family No. 555; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 59, Family No. 116; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 96-97, Family No. 178; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 2-3, calls him Joseph HENRY, charpentier, age 40, on the embarkation list, Josef HENRIQUE on the debarkation list, & Joseph HENRY, carpenter, age 40, on the complete listing, says he was in the 3rd Family aboard Le Bon Papa with his wife 6 children, details his marriage, including the names of his & his wife's parents, & details the baptism or birth of son Jean-Laurent & daughter Anne-Françoise in France; BRDR, 4:283 (SGA-8, 100), his death/burial record, calls him Joseph HENRY, age 78, but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:117. 

24.  Wall of Names, 37 (pl. 9R), calls him Joseph-Philipe HENRY, & lists him with his wife & 2 stepsons, Nicolas & Joseph METRA; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 504-05, Family No. 562, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Joseph-Philippe HENRY, gives his parents' names, says he was godson of Philippe VIBERT & Rosalie TRAHAN, that his family resided at St.-Servan from 1759-72, & received permission to reside at Morlaix in Feb 1772; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 97-98, Family No. 180, calls him Joseph-Philippe [HENRY], gives his parents' names, & details his family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 213, his marriage record, calls him Joseph-Philipe HENRY, gives his & his wife's parents' names & his wife's first husband's name, says he [Joseph-Philipe] was native of "the parish of Saint Servant, diocese of Saint Malo and resident of this parish [St.-Martin-de-Chantenay] for many years," that he was a sailor, that his wife was "native of the parish of L'Assomption in Accadie and resident of this parish for several years," that both of her parents were deceased at the time of the marriage, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Pierre HENRY, father of the groom, Jean TIBEAUDEAU, brother of the bride, Jean METRA/METRAS, brother-in-law of the bride, who signed, Pierre LAMBERT, nephew of the bride, Francois BAUDELOCHE, Joseph HÉBERT, who signed, Ollivier TRAHAN, cousin of the groom, "and several others, all of this parish"; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 97, Family No. 179, calls him Joseph-Philippe HENRY, says he was born in c1762 at St.-Servan, gives his parents' names, says he was a seaman, details his marriage, including his wife's parents' names & her first husband's name, says at the time of his marriage that he was resident "of the Parish of Saint-Martin of Chantenay since many years," that she also "was resident of the Parish of Saint-Martin of Chantenay since several years," & details his family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile, 54-55, calls him Joseph-Philipe HENRY, marin, age 22, on the embarkation list, & Joseph-Philipe HENRY, sailor, age 22, on the complete listing, says he was in the 54th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his wife & 2 stepsons, Nicolas METRA, age 3, & Joseph METRA, a nursling, details his marriage, including his & his wife's parents' names & the name of his wife's first husband, & says he & his wife were married in 1785 but gives no place of marriage; BRDR, 8:293 (SPH-2, 6B), his death/burial record, calls him Joseph Philippe HENRY, "age ca. 95 years," but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 3:275 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #178), another death/burial record, calls him Jean Baptiste Philippe HENRY, says he died "at age 95 yrs, during yellow fever epidemic," but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife.  

God only knows how long he would have lived if the yellow jack hadn't got him!  He was "only" 91 years old when he died & among one of the last of the Acadian immigrants in LA to join our ancestors. 

25.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6L), calls him Joseph [HENRY], & lists him with his parents & 5 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 496-97, Family No. 555; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 2-3, calls him Joseph, son [Joseph HENRY's] fils, age 14, on the embarkation list, Josef, su [Josef HENRIQUE's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Joseph HENRY, his [Joseph HENRY's] son, age 14, on the complete listing, & says that he was in the 3rd Family aboard Le Bon Papa with his parents & 5 siblings; BRDR, 2:201, 377 (SGA-14, 28, #105), his marriage record, calls him Joseph-Sulia HENRIQUE, calls his wife Rosalia COMO, gives his & her parents' names, says his parents were "of Brittany, France," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Juan-Lorenzo HENRIQUE [his brother], Luis BRO [his future brother-in-law], & Maria CAPDEVILLE; BRDR, 3:431 (SGA-8, 36), probably his death/burial record, calls him Joseph HENRY, gives his age, & says he "came from New Orleans, very ill."  

Does the note in his burial record mean that he was from New Orleans, or that he had been there recently & had fallen ill?

His wife's full name is from the marriage record of son Joseph, dated 9 Jan 1826, in BRDR, 4:283 (SGA-14, 230). 

26.  Wall of Names, 35 (pl. 9L), calls her Magdeleine HENRRY, & lists her with her husband & a daughter; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 193, her marriage record, calls her Magdeleine HENRY, "originally from St.-Charles in Acadia & transferred to France," calls her husband Jean DU RAMBOURG, "laborer of Île St.-Jean and transferred to France," gives her & his parents' names, says both her parents were deceased at the time of the wedding, & gives no witnesses to her marriage; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 67, Family No. 124, calls her Madeleine HENRY, says she was born c1736, does not gives her or her husband's parents' names, says she married him c1759 but does not give the place of marriage, says son Jean-Baptiste DURAMBOURG, fils died age 20 & was buried 19 Feb 1781, St.-Martin, Chantenay, & details the family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s as well as its voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 46-47, calls her Magdeleine HENRRY, sa [Jean-Bte DURAMBOURG's] femme, age 45, on the embarkation list, & Magdelaine HENRY, his [Jean-Baptiste DARAMBOURG's] wife, age 45, on the complete listing, says she was in the 17th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with her husband & a daughter, & says she married her husband in c1759 but gives no place of marriage.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:39; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 32, 65, 104, 164.

The ages given to her in many primary sources are all over the place.  One wonders why. 

27.  Wall of Names, 46, calls her Magdelaine HENRY; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 173, shows the fate of her family in the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59, detailed in the footnote for her husband's profile; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 490-91, Family No. 548.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:81. 

28.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6L), calls her Magdelene-Apolline [HENRY, & lists her with her parents & 5 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 2-3, calls her Magdelene-Apoline, son [Joseph HENRY's] fils, à la mamelle, on the embarkation list, Magdalena Polonia, su [Josef HENRIQUE's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Magdelaine-Appoline HENRY, nursling, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 3rd Family aboard Le Bon Papa with her parents & 5 siblings.  

What happened to her in LA?  

29.  Wall of Names, 45, calls her Marguerite HENRY; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 487-88, Family No. 544; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 599-600, Family No. 684; BRDR, 3:431 (SGA-8, 80), her death/burial record, calls her Marguerite HENRY, wid. LONGEPEE, says she was 66 years old when she died, but does not give her parents' names.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:117. 

30.  Wall of Names, 43, calls her Marguerite HENRY belle fille [of Pierre HÉBERT]; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 128, shows the fate of her family in the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59, detailed in the footnote for her mother's profile; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 495-96, Family No. 553.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:82. 

What happened to her in LA?  Did she survive the crossing to LA?

31.  Wall of Names, 46, calls her Marguerite-Pélagie HENRY; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 500-02, Family No. 560; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:280 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, p.5), her death/burial record, calls her Marguerite Pélagie HENRY, m. Xavier BOURG, says she died "at age 70 yrs.," but does not give her parents' names.

32.  Wall of Names, 45, calls her Marguerite-Rose HENRY; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 493-95, Family No. 551, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marie-Rose HENRY; BRDR, 2:20, 378 (SJO-3, 21), her marriage record, calls her Rosa HENRY, calls her husband Frederico ARBOUR, gives her & her his parents' names, says her parents were "of San Malo" & his "of Havre de Grass," that they had to secure dispensation for 3rd degree of consanguinity in order to marry, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Maximiliano HENRY [her brother] & Francisco ARBOUR [his brother]. 

There is the possibility that she & her family may have been among a minority of passengers from their ship who did not go to Bayou des Écores but went straight to Baton Rouge/Manchac from New Orleans in early 1786. 

33.  Wall of Names, 45, calls her Marguerite-Toussainte HENRY; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 484-85, Family No. 541; BRDR, 2:161, 377 (PCP-19, 35), her marriage record, calls her Marguerite HENRY "of St.-Malo in Bretagne," calls her husband François BROUSSARD "of Normandy, France," gives her & his parents' names, says her father was deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Charles BROUSSARD & Maximilien HENRY.

Her marriage was recorded at Pointe Coupée because Bayou des Écores never had a church of its own, & Baton Rouge did not have its own church until 1793, so priests from Pointe Coupée would administer the sacraments in those communities until Baton Rouge had its own church.  Her husband came to LA aboard Le Bon Papa & settled at Manchac & then Baton Rouge, where she & her family moved, so the marriage probably was at Baton Rouge. 

There is the possibility that she & her family did not go to Bayou des Écores with the majority of the passenger from their ship but may have gone straight to Baton Rouge/Manchac from New Orleans in early 1786. 

34.  Wall of Names, 33 (pl. 8L), calls her Marie HERVORY, & lists her with her husband, Francois ARBOURG, & 3 sons, François-Henry, Jean-Louis-Firmin, & Frédéric-Édouard [ARBOURG]; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 12, 193, her marriage record, recorded at Notre-Dame, Le Havre, calls her Marie HENRY, "24 yrs. old, de St.-Michel en Acadie, here 1 1/2 yrs.," calls her husband François ARBOUR, "22 yrs. old of Québec, Canada, here for 1 1/2 yrs.," gives her & his parents' names, but gives no witnesses to her marriage; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 53-54, Family No. 104, calls her Marie HENRY, says she was born in c1741 but gives no birthplace, gives her parents' names, details her marriage, says both her parents were deceased at the time of the marriage, calls her husband François HAMBOURG but also spells the surname ARBOUR & ARBOURG, says he was born in c1743 but gives no birthplace, gives his parents' names, says his mother was deceased at the time of the marriage, includes the birth/baptismal & death/records of son Louis-Nicolas HARBOURG, baptized 26 Jun 1774, Archigny, godson of Louis-Nicolas de PERUSE des CARTS & Marie-Sophie DEBOUX de VILLEMORT, died age 9 & buried 19 Dec 1782, Archigny, & son Louis-Joseph HAMBOURG, baptized 3 Jun 1778, Archigny, godson of Louis-Joseph JAUNON, surgeon, & Victoire DOUCET; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 34-35, calls her Marie HERVORY, sa [François ARBOURG's] femme, age 40, on the embarkation list, Maria HENRIQUE, su [Franco ARBOURG's] muger, on the debarkation list, & Marie HENRY, his [François HARBOURG's] wife, age 40, on the complete listing, says she was in the 17th Family aboard Le Beaumont with her husband François HARBOURG, califat/calker, age 45, & 3 sons, François-Henry HARBOURG, marin/sailor, age 18, Jean-Louis-Firmin HARBOURG, age 15, & Frédéric-Edouard HARBOURG, age 13, details her marriage, including her & her husband's parents' names, says they were married in 1765 but gives no place of marriage, & details her son François HAMBOURG's marriage in LA to Marie-Jeanne DAIGLE on 27 Sep 1790 but gives no place of marriage.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:82; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 505, 526.  

Despite Arsenault's inclusion of her son François[-Henry] ARBOUR in the LA section of his Généalogie, 2402, I can find no clear connection with her husband, François ARBOUR/ARBOURG/HARBOURG, & greater Acadia.  Arsenault, Généalogie, 2055, does not list his father, François ARBOUR/ARBOURG/HARBOURG, père, as a son of Pierre ARBOUR dit Carrica, who was among the first to settle on Île St.-Jean.  They likely were not related.  We will have to await Stephen White's DGFA-2 to find out if François the Canadian has a connection with greater Acadia. 

35.  Wall of Names, 45, calls her Marie HENRY soeur [of Jean HENRY]; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 491-92, Family No. 549.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:80. 

Did she marry?  There is the possibility that she & her brother Jean's family may have been among a minority of passengers from their ship who did not go to Bayou des Écores but went straight to Baton Rouge/Manchac from New Orleans in early 1786.

36.  Wall of Names, 44, calls her Marie HENRY; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 481-82, Family No. 538, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marie-Jeanne HENRY, gives her parents' names, & says her godparents were Charles BOURG & Brigitte GROSSIN.

What happened to her in LA?

37.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6L), calls her Marie-Josèph [HENRY], & lists her with her parents & 5 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 96-97, Family No. 178, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marie-Joséphine HENRY, & gives her parents' names; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 2-3, calls her Marie-Josèphe, son [Joseph HENRY's] fils[sic], age 7, on the embarkation list, Maria Josefa, su [Josef HENRIQUE's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Marie-Josèphe HENRY, his [Joseph HENRY's] daughter, age 7, on the complete listing, & says that she was in the 3rd Family aboard Le Bon Papa with her parents & 5 siblings; BRDR, 2:149, 377 (SGA-14, 29, #112), her marriage record, calls her Maria Josefa HENRIQUEZ (HENRY), calls her husband Luis BRO, gives her & his parents' names, says her parents were "of San Similian of Nantes, Province of Brittany," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Carlos BRO [his brother], Pedro DOUSSET, & Margarita LANDRY; BRDR, 8:293 (SGA-8, 356), her death/burial record, calls her Modeste HENRY, "age 78 years, a native of Nantes, France, widow of Louis BREAUX," but does not give her parents' names.    

Her husband, a distant cousin, was born in LA in Jun 1774, his family having come to the colony from MD in 1768. 

She was one of the last of the Acadian immigrants in LA to join our ancestors. 

38.  Wall of Names, 45, calls her Marie-Joseph HENRY; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 486-87, Family No. 542; BRDR, 2:213, 377 (PCP-19, 5), her marriage record, calls her Marie HENRY "of St.-Malo," calls her husband Édouard DAIGRE "of Morles," gives her & his parents' names, says her father was deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Louis Dantilly BERTAIN, Antoine BORDELON, & Pierre LEDOUX. 

Her husband came to LA aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the 7 Ships, & settled at Baton Rouge.  Her marriage was recorded at Pointe Coupée because Baton Rouge did not have its own church until 1793, so the Pointe Coupée priest would cross the river & administer the sacraments at Baton Rouge/Manchac.  The date of her marriage & the fact that her husband settled at Baton Rouge raises the possibility that her family did not go to Bayou des Écores with the majority of the passengers from their ship but went straight to Baton Rouge/Manchac from New Orleans in early 1786. 

39.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 8L), calls her Marie-Magdeleine [HENRY], & lists her with her father, stepmother, 2 sisters, & a stepbrother; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 193, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marie-Madalen HENRY, gives her parents' names, says her father was a "mariner," & that her godparents were Silvain AUCOIN & Anne-Marie BERNARD; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 58-59, Family No. 115; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 30-31, calls her Marie-Magdelaine, sa [Charles HENRY's] fille, age 21, on the embarkation list, Marie Magdalena, su [Carlos HENRIQUE's] hija, on the debarkation list, & Marie-Magdelaine HENRY, his [Charles HENRY's] daughter, age 21, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 3rd Family aboard Le Beaumont with her father, stepmother, 2 sisters, & a stepbrother; BRDR, 2:297, 377-78 (PCP-19, 34), her marriage record, calls her Marie-Madeleine HENRY "of Cherbourg, Normandy, France," calls her husband Charles FOURNIER "of St. Thomas Parish, Québec," gives her & his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Charles BROUSSARD & Jean BUDROT; NOAR, 6:149 (SLC, F4, 45), her death/burial record, calls her Magdalena HENRY, "native of Nantes in France, 40 yrs., sp. (__) FOURNIER," & gives her parents' names.  

Her marriage was recorded at Pointe Coupée because Baton Rouge did not have a church of its own until 1793.  Until then, priests from Pointe Coupée would cross the river & administer the sacraments at Baton Rouge/Manchac.  

What brought her to Charity Hospital in New Orleans?  Was she a resident of the city at the time of her death or just visiting? 

40.  Wall of Names, 45, calls him Maximilien HENRY; BRDR, 2:166, 378 (SJA-2, 17), his marriage record, calls him Maximiliano ANRRY (HENRY), calls his wife Adélayda BRUNO, gives his & her parents' names, says his parents were "of Plutis, Diocese of St. Malo" & hers "of LaFourche," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Pedro BRUNO & Rosa ANRRY [his sister].

There is the possibility that he & his family did not go to Bayou des Écores with the majority of the passengers from their ship but went straight to Baton Rouge/Manchac from New Orleans in early 1786.  The baptismal records of 3 of his children, dated 2 Feb 1802 & 9 Jul 1803, at St. Louis Cathedral, reveal that the family may have moved from Baton Rouge to New Orleans in the first decade of the 1800s.  It was unusual for an Acadian family to live in New Orleans at that time.  Was he a merchant, a seaman, or some other profession that required his residence in the metropolis?  It was certainly no place for a farmer in that day.  See NOAR, 7:167 (SLC, B14, 180; SLC, B17, 29).

41.  Wall of Names, 29 (pl. 7L), calls him Pierre [HENRY], & lists him with his grandfather Charles HÉBERT & his widowed mother; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 14-15, calls him Pierre, fils de cette veuve [Marie Yte, veuve HENRY], age 14, on the embarkation list, does not include him on the debarkation list, calls him Pierre HENRY, son of this widow [Marie Yte HÉBERT, veuve HENRY], age 14, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 14th Family aboard La Bergère with his widowed mother & maternal grandfather.

What happened to him in LA?  Did he survive the crossing from France?

His father Germain, third son of the family's Acadian progenitor & in his early 70s, also perished on the crossing to France in 1758. 

Son Cyrille-François accompanied him & his wife to LA.  Son Joseph-Philippe went to LA with his wife & 2 stepsons on a different ship.  But what of his other children born in France--Pierre-Marin, Jean-Félix, Amant, Francois-Michel, & Adélaïde-Marie HENRY, who would have been 25, 24, 21, 16, & 15, respectively in 1785?  Did the older ones marry & remain in the mother country?  What happened to the younger ones?

The marriage record of his sisters Angélique & Françoise in NOAR, 4:115 (SLC, M5, 44), & Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:420, say that their mother was Anne THIBODEAUX, so they were his half-siblings.  Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 920, the marriage record of Pierre HENRY & Anne THIBODEAUX, confirms that his father Pierre, père, had 2 wives.  For confirmation of the siblings' relationship, see <acadian-cajun.com>, & Wall of Names, 45.

48.  Not in Wall of Names because of the circumstance of his birth.  Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 31, calls him Jean-Baptiste [HENRY], says he was born on 28 Oct 1785 but gives no birthplace, & gives his parents' names; BRDR, 2:377 (SGA-11, 6), his birth/baptismal record, calls him Juan Bautista HENRY, & gives his parents' names.   

He was born probably in the Baton Rouge District, where his family settled, not at St.-Gabriel, because Baton Rouge did not have a church of its own until 1793.  Priests from St.-Gabriel administered the sacraments there until Baton Rouge got its own parish.  

Where is his marriage record?  His marrying Marie Christine DAIGLE is based on solid evidence--the baptismal records of son François, dated 29 Jan 1812, son Jean Baptiste, fils, dated 10 Jan 1814, & daughter Marie Rose Joséphine, dated 23 Oct 1814, in BRDR, 3:430, 431 (SJO-6, 121, 181, 204), which give the children's grandparents' names.  Jean Baptiste, fils's & Marie Rose Joséphine's baptismal records call their mother Maria Christina DAIGLE, so that was her full name.
