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

LANDRY

[LAN-dree]

ACADIA

There were two progenitors of this family in Acadia, both named René.  According to Acadian genealogist Stephen A. White: "After a study of the dispensations granted upon the marriages of the descendants of the Landrys, it appears that the first two René Landrys in Acadia could not have been more nearly related than in the second to the third degree."  In other words, they were cousins, not father and son or brothers: 

René Landry, later called l'aîné, a farmer perhaps from La Chaussée, near Blois, in the Orleanais region of the Loire valley in France, born in c1618, came to Acadia in c1640, one of the early French settlers in the colony He married Pérrine Bourg, widow of colonist Simon Pelletret, at Port-Royal in c1645.  René's sister Antoinette had married Antoine Bourg in c1642, so even before he started a family of his own, René was well-connected to an important family in the colony.  He and Pérrine had five children, including two sons, both born at Port-Royal, who created families of their own.  Their three daughters married into the Comeau, Granger, Richard dit Beaupré, and Dupuis families.  René l'aîné died at Port-Royal in the late 1670s or early 1680s, in his 60s

Older son Pierre, born in c1658, married Madeleine, daughter of Étienne Robichaud, at Port-Royal in c1682.  They remained in the Port-Royal area and had six children, including five sons who married into the Mius d'Entremont de Pobomcoup, Melanson, Mius de Pleinmarais, and Belliveau families.  Their daughter married into the Mius d'Entremont de Pobomcoup family. 

Younger son Claude, born in c1663, married Marguerite, daughter of Claude Thériot, at Port-Royal in c1683.  In 1714, after the British took over the colony, Claude received permission from the French king to settle on Île Royale, today's Cape Breton Island, which remained in French hands.  Evidently Claude remained at Port-Royal, where he and Marguerite had 10 children, including four sons who married into the Babineau, Petitot dit Saint-Seine, and Robichaud families.  Five of their daughters married into the Dugas dit Grivois, Boudrot, Bourg, and Petitot dit Saint-Seine families.  Claude died at Port-Royal in December 1740, age 79.  Several of his daughters did move on to Île Royale, settling at Port-Toulouse.

Another Landry, born in France in c1634, also named René and called le jeune, came to the colony by c1659, when he married Marie Bernard, a native of Port-Royal René le jeune became the patriarch of an even larger branch of the Landry clan.  René le jeune was not counted in the first Acadian census of 1671, but he did appear in the second Port-Royal census of 1678.  He died at Port-Royal in c1693, in his late 50sHe and Marie had 15 children, including eight sons, all born at Port-Royal, who created families of their own.  Six of their daughters married into the Thériot, Racois dit de Rosier, Dupuis, Richard, LeBlanc, and Blanchard families.  (René le jeune is a paternal ancestor of alligator hunter Troy Landry of Pierre Part, Louisiana, featured on the History Channel's popular "Swamp People" series.)

Oldest son Antoine, born in c1660, married Marie, daughter of Pierre Thibodeau, probably at Port-Royal in c1681. Later in the decade they moved to Chignecto and were counted at Minas in the early 1690s.  According to a 1702 report by a colonial official, Antoine and his brother Claude were among "the first residents of Les Mines."  Antoine and Marie had 12 children, including six sons who married into the LeBlanc, Forest, Doucet, Melanson, and Bourg families.  Their six daughters married into the Hébert, LeBlanc, and Babin families.  Antoine died at Grand-Pré in February 1711, in his early 50s.

Claude, not to be confused with the son of René l'aîné, was, like the other Claude Landry, born in c1663.  He married first to Marie-Catherine, another daughter of Pierre Thibodeau, at Port-Royal in c1684.  They had 13 children, including five sons who married into the Comeau, Melanson, Doucet, and LeBlanc families.  Four of their daughters married into the LeBlanc, Gautrot, Célestin dit Bellemère, and Daigre families.  According to a 1702 report by a colonial official, Claude and his older brother Antoine were among "the first residents of Les Mines."  Claude remarried to Marie, daughter of Antoine Babin, probably at Minas in c1725.  They had no children.  Claude remarried again--his third marriage--to Jeanne, daughter of André Célestin dit Bellemère and widow of Mathieu Brasseur dit La Citarty, at Grand-Pré in May 1741.  He had no children by his third wife either.  Claude died at Grand-Pré in September 1747, in his mid-80s.

Jean, born in c1666, became a carpenter.  He married Cécile, daughter of Pierre Melanson dit La Verdure, fils, probably at Port-Royal in c1687.  They were counted at Minas in 1693.  They had nine children, including four sons who married into the Dugas, Gautrot, Vincent, and Babin families.  Three of their daughters married into the Dingle, Lejeune, and Daigre families. 

René, fils, born in c1668, married Anne, daughter of Bonaventure Thériot, at Port-Royal in c1691.  They had 10 children, including four sons who married into the Melanson, Thériot, Rivet, and LeBlanc families.  Their three daughters married into the LeBlanc and Vincent families. 

Germain, born in c1674, married Marie, another daughter of Pierre Melanson dit La Verdure, fils, at Port-Royal in c1694.  In 1714, Germain, living at Minas, having received permission from the French king, was one of the Acadians who went with Father Gaulin to look at land on Île Royale.  He remained at Minas, where he and Marie had 11 children, including six sons who married into the Blanchard, Babin, LeBlanc, and Bourg families.  Three of their daughters married into the Babin and Comeau families. 

Abraham, born in c1678, married Marie, daughter of Pierre Guilbeau, at Port-Royal in October 1701.  In the same year of his marriage, Abraham was described by a census taker as a "garçon à la pesche," or fishermanIn the early 1700s, he and his wife moved to Pigiguit in the Minas Basin.  In 1714, Abraham also received permission to settle on Île Royale, but, like his brothers, he remained in Nova Scotia.  Abraham and Marie had 10 children, including five sons who married into the Doucet, LeBlanc, Flan, Rivet, and Thériot families.  Their three daughters married into the Bugeaud, Rivet, LeBlanc, and Landry families.  (Abraham is alligator hunter Troy Landry's paternal ancestor through Abraham's oldest son Pierre, who married Anne-Marie, daughter of René Doucet, at Port-Royal in June 1726; Anne-Marie's mother was Marie Broussard, older sister of the Beausoleil Broussard brothers of Acadian resistance fame.  Pierre and Anne-Marie settled at Pigiguit.) 

Pierre, born in c1680, became a fisherman and married Madeleine, daughter of François Broussard, at Port-Royal in January 1704.  They settled at Minas.  In 1714, he, too, received permission to settle on Île Royale.  He and Madeleine had five children, including three sons who married into the Babin, Thériot, and Bourg families.  Their daughter married into the LeBlanc family. 

Youngest son Charles dit Charlot, born in c1688, married Catherine-Josèphe, another daughter of François Broussard, at Port-Royal in October 1708.  In 1714, he, too, received permission to settle on Île Royale.  He and his wife remained at Port-Royal.  In September 1727, in their capacity as delegates to the colonial council, Charles dit Charlot and two other Port-Royal settlers refused to take the oath of allegiance to the new British king, George II.  The British imprisoned the three delegates for this bold refusal.  It cost Charles dit Charlot his life.  While being held in the stockade at Fort Anne, he fell gravely ill.  His wife beseeched colonial officials to release him so that "he could be better looked after."  The officials, calling him "a very Great Offender," refused, and Charles dit Charlot died in confinement in November 1727, in his late 30s.  But before his early passing, he fathered nine children with Catherine-Josèphe, including two sons who married into the Girouard, Babin, Carret, and Pitre families.  Two of their daughters married into the Lanoue and Savoie families. 

The great majority of the Landrys who emigrated to Louisiana came from this branch of the family.  Abraham's descendants are especially numerous in the Bayou State.  ...

LE GRAND DÉRANGEMENT

Le Grand Dérangement scattered these large families even farther.  ...

The Acadians at Chignecto were the first to endure a disruption of their lives.  In the early 1750s, Canadian soldiers, assisted by Mi'kmaq warriors led by the fanatical French priest Abbé Jean-Louis Le Loutre, burned Acadian homesteads in the British-controlled area east of Rivière Missaguash, forcing the habitants to move to the French-controlled area west of the river.  Landrys may have been among the refugees. ...

.

The Landrys shipped to Virginia endured a fate worse than most of the other exiles deported from Minas.  The Virginia governor, Robert Dinwiddie, refused to allow the 1,500 Acadians sent to him in the fall of 1755 to disembark in the Old Dominion.  Hundreds of the exiles died on the filthy, crowded ships anchored in Hampton Roads while the Virginia authorities pondered their fate.  A few Acadians were allowed to come ashore at various James River settlements, but they were watched closely.  When some of them began to fraternize with African slaves, the Virginians returned them to the transports, where they languished with the others.  A hand full of sturdy young Acadians managed to slip off the vessels and trek overland through fields and forests and across the mountains, back to French Canada.  But most of the Acadians remained on the fetid ships, and more of them died.  Finally, in the spring of 1756, Governor Dinwiddie and Virginia's House of Burgesses made their decision ... the French Neutrals must go!  In May, the first shipment of Acadians left for England, and in two weeks all of them had gone--299 to Bristol, 250 to Falmouth, 340 to Southampton, and 336 to Liverpool--1,225 of the original 1,500.   Their ordeal only worsened in the English ports, where they were treated like common criminals.  In the spring of 1763, after the war with Britain finally ended, the French government consented to repatriate the survivors to France. ...

LOUISIANA:  RIVER SETTLEMENTS

Landrys were among the very first Acadians to find refuge in Louisiana.  Olivier Landry of Chignecto, age about 36, came to the colony with wife Cécile Poirier, age 39, and three children--Joseph, age 16, Marie, age 14, and Jean-Antoine, age 3.  (One authority says that Olivier learned of the colony's good qualities from a kinsman, Joseph De Goutin de Ville, a native of Port-Royal, who, at first as an army officer and then as a merchant, had been living at New Orleans since the late 1740s.  Olivier's paternal grandmother, Marie Thibodeau, was De Goutin's mother's older sister.)  The Landrys and their three related families from Chignecto--the Cormiers, Poiriers, and Richards, 21 persons in all--left Savannah, Georgia, on 21 December 1763 aboard the Savannah Packet and sailed to Mobile, "from which place they are to go to New Orleans," proclaimed an article in the Georgia Gazette the following day.  After a short stay in Mobile, which now belonged to the hated British, they reached New Orleans in February 1764--the first recorded group of Acadians to settle in present-day Louisiana.  French authorities, who still controlled the colony even though it had been ceded to Spain in a secret treaty 15 months earlier, had not expected these new arrivals.  The Acadians' reputation for hard work and loyalty to France and the Roman Catholic faith having preceded them, however, the colonial officials welcomed the Landrys et al., gave them rice, corn, and other necessities, and pondered where to send them.  After overseeing the baptism of several of their children at New Orleans--including Olivier Landry's son Jean-Antoine--and consulting with authorities, the Acadians moved upriver to the recently-established concession of Cabanocé, later called St.-Jacques, where they settled on a bend in the Mississippi along the right, or west, bank, of the river in "the area of the vacant lands between [Nicolas] Verret's plantation and [Jacques] Jacqueline's cow ranch," at present-day Lagan, St. James Parish.  Cabanocé thus became the first Acadian community in Louisiana, predating the Bayou Teche settlement by a full year. 

Olivier and Cécile had no more children in Louisiana.  Olivier died before April 1777, when his wife remarried at St.-Jacques.  Daughter Marie married into the Thibodeaux family.  Olivier's younger son probably died young, but his older son carried on the family line in what became St. James Parish:

Descendants of Joseph LANDRY (c1751-1811; René le jeune, Antoine, Joseph)

Joseph, elder son of Olivier Landry and Cécile Poirier, born at Chignecto in c1751, was deported to Georgia with his family in 1755.  He moved with them to Charleston, South Carolina, in 1763, followed them back to Georgia, and went with them to Louisiana via Mobile, Alabama, in late 1763 and early 1764.  He married Marie-Anne, called Anne, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean-Baptiste Cormier, père, at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques in c1768.  Anne also had come to Louisiana from Georgia via Mobile in 1764.  Spanish officials counted them on the left, or east, bank of the river at St.-Jacques in 1777.  Their daughters married into the Green, Poirier, Richard, and Theriot families.  Joseph died in St. James Parish in January 1811; he was 60 years old.  Only two of his five sons seem to have created families of their own, and only a single line--that of a grandson--remained on the river, in St. James Parish.  Another grandson settled on upper Bayou Lafourche. 

1

Oldest son Joseph, fils, born probably at St.-Jacques in c1770, married Madeleine, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Michel, at St.-Jacques in February 1797.  Their son Joseph III was born at St.-Jacques in September 1799, Pierre Léon in July 1805, and Jean Hildebert, Ildebert, or Philibert near Convent, St. James Parish, in May 1810.  Their daughter married into the Thibodeaux family.  Joseph, fils died near Convent in April 1835; the priest who recorded his burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Joseph died at "age 65 yrs.," so this probably was him.  Two of his three sons married, but only one of their lines seems to have survived.  It remained in St. James Parish, but it was a vigorous line. 

1a

Joseph III married Anastasie, also called Octavie, daughter of French Creole Jacques Poché, at the Convent church in July 1825.  Their son Joseph IV was born near Convent in September 1828, Norbert Sylvère or Sylvain, also called Sylvère Norbert, in July 1830, Joseph Philippe, called Philippe, in January 1835, Joseph Justin in August 1842, and Joseph Clément in February 1847.  They also had a son named Joseph Théophile, called Théophile.  Their daughters married into the Badeaux, Guidry, Part, and Poirier families.  Joseph III died near Convent in February 1866; the priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Joseph died at "age 67 years"; Joseph III would have been 66 years old, so this was him. 

Joseph IV married Élise, called Lise, daughter of French Creole Michel LeBoeuf, at the Convent church, St. James Parish, in March 1849; Élise's mother was a Guidry.  Their son Alfred was born near Convent in May 1862, Joseph V in May 1860, and Victor in December 1864.  Their daughter married into the Bethancourt family. 

Norbert Sylvère married Marie Irma, called Irma, daughter of German Creole Evariste Oubre, at the Convent church, St. James Parish, in April 1849.  Their son Joseph Sylvère le jeune was born near Convent in March 1850 but died the following November, Léon Norbert was born in April 1856, Alcée in January 1860, George Jefferson died at age 10 months in August 1862, and Joseph was born in February 1869. 

Philippe married first cousin Marie Augustine, called Augustine, daughter of French Creole Jacques Poché, at the Convent church, St. James Parish, in August 1855; they had to secure a dispensation for second degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son Philippe Aubrez or Aubry was born in St. James Parish in July 1856, and Joseph Jhonson, probably Johnson, in March 1864.  Philippe remarried to first cousin Marie Olide or Olype, another daughter of Jacques Poché, in a civil ceremony probably in St. James Parish, and sanctified the marriage at the St. James church, St. James Parish, in May 1869; they had to secure a dispensation for first degree of affinity and second degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son Fernand Emmanuel was born in St. James Parish in November 1868. 

Joseph Théophile married Geneviève Élodie, called Élodie, daughter of Simon Rouiller, Rouillier, or Rouillet, at the Convent church, St. James Parish, in August 1855, on the same day and at the same place his brother Philippe married.  Théophile and Élodie's son Louis Théophile was born near Convent in October 1864, and Jean Antoine in March 1867. 

Joseph Clément married Louisa, minor daughter of fellow Acadian Philemon Guidry, at the St. James church, St. James Parish, in November 1867. 

1b

Hildebert married cousin Marie Euphémie, called Euphémie, daughter of Élie Landry of West Baton Rouge Parish, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in April 1830.  Their daughter married into the Hébert family.  Hildebert remarried to Clémence, daughter of French Creole Gerasin Desormeaux, "at the home of Joseph Landry," perhaps his older brother, in St. James Parish in December 1835; the second marriage was recorded at both the St. James and Convent churches.  Did Hildebert father any sons by either of his wives? 

2

Pierre, baptized at St.-Jacques, age unrecorded, in March 1772, died in Assumption Parish, on upper Bayou Lafourche, in November 1815.  He was only 44 years old, a resident of St. James Parish, and probably never married. 

3

Benjamin, baptized at St.-Jacques, age unrecorded, in February 1774, married cousin Anne-Apolline, called Apolline and Poulone, daughter of René Landry of Ascension, at St.-Jacques in April 1799; Apolline's mother, also, was a Landry.  Their son Benjamin, fils was born at St. James in January 1804, and Placide in March 1808 but died the following August.  Their daughters married into the Achée and Blanchard families.  Apolline died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in April 1808; she was "age about 35 yrs."  Benjamin remarried to cousin Marie Céleste, called Céleste, daughter of Anselme Landry and widow of Allain Babin and Amand Braud, at the St. James church, St. James Parish in November 1810.  Their son Joseph Sylvère, called Sylvère, was born in St. James Parish in December 1815.  Benjamin died in St. James Parish in March 1816; the priest who recorded his burial said that Benjamin was 45 years old when he died, but he was only in his early 40s.  Only one of his sons seems to have married, and he settled on upper Bayou Lafourche. 

Joseph Sylvère married Rosalie or Rosaline, daughter of Jacob Rebre of Germany, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in July 1835.  They remained on upper Bayou Lafourche near the boundary between Assumption and Ascension parishes. 

4

Jean-Baptiste, baptized at St.-Jacques, age unrecorded, in October 1779, may have died young. 

5

Youngest son François, baptized at St.-Jacques, age unrecorded, in May 1781, may have died in St. James Parish in March 1816.  The priest who recorded his burial said that Francois was "age about 40 yrs." when he died and mentioned no wife, so he may not have married. 

Jean-Antoine LANDRY (1760-?; René le jeune, Antoine, Joseph)

Jean-Antoine, younger son of Olivier Landry and Cécile Poirier, born probably in Georgia in November 1760 and baptized at New Orleans in February 1764, soon after his family came to Louisiana from Georgia via Mobile, was still alive in 1766, when Spanish officials counted his family at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques.  He then disappears from Louisiana church records, so he probably died young. 

~

In 1765, a year after the first Landrys came to Louisiana, a young widower, an orphan, and two wives reached New Orleans from Halifax with dozens of other refugees from Nova Scotia.  They also settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, which soon was being called the Acadian Coast:

Osite Landry, age 32, came with husband Pierre Chiasson of Chignecto, age 35, her husband's brother Paul Chiasson, age 19, her husband's nephew Jean-Baptiste Chiasson, age 3, and two children, ages 6 and 1. 

Marie Landry of La Famille, Pigiguit, age unrecorded, came with husband Joseph Bourg of Grand-Pré, age 43, brother-in-law Charles Bourg, age 3, and four children, ages 20 to 5.  Joseph died either on the voyage from Halifax via St.-Domingue or in Louisiana soon after the family reached New Orleans.  Marie remarried to François, son of fellow Acadian Paul Savoie of Chepoudy and widower of Anne Aucoin, at New Orleans in July 1765--one of the earliest Acadian marriages recorded in Louisiana.  They settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, where Marie died by October 1766, when her husband remarried ... again. 

Joseph Landry, age 26, a young widower, came with two sons, Joseph, fils, age 2, and Pierre, age 1.  They remained at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques. 

Another Marie Landry, who would have been only 13 in 1765, may have come to the colony from Halifax via St.-Domingue that year.  She married fellow Acadian Charles Thibodeaux at Cabanocé in c1768, when she was only 16.  They settled on the left, or east, bank of the river there. 

Descendants of Joseph LANDRY (c1739-?; René le jeune, Abraham)

Joseph, eldest son of Abraham Landry dit Petit Abram and his first wife Élisabeth LeBlanc, born probably at Pigiguit in c1739, eluded British forces in 1755 and took refuge probably on the Gulf of St. Lawrence shore.  Meanwhile, his family was deported to Maryland.  During Le Grand Dérangement, Joseph married a woman whose name has been lost to history.  The British held them as prisoners in Nova Scotia in the early 1760s.  At least two sons were born to them probably in Nova Scotia in c1763 and 1764.  Joseph, probably a widower by then, took his two sons to Louisiana via St.-Domingue in 1765.  They settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, where Joseph reunited with his father, stepmother, and siblings, who had come from Maryland, in 1766.  Joseph remarried to Marie-Anne, called Anne, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Granger, at Cabanocé in August 1768.  She gave him more children, including sons.  Spanish officials counted  them on the right, or west, bank of the river at Cabanocé in 1769 and on the same side of the river at nearby Ascension the following year and in 1777.  Joseph remarried--his third marriage--to Marie, daughter of perhaps fellow Acadian Pierre Braud and widow of Olivier Babin and Pierre Foret, at Ascension in May 1782.  Only one of his many sons seems to have created a family of his own and settled in what became Ascension Parish. 

1

Oldest son Joseph, fils, by his first wife, born probably in Nova Scotia in c1763, may have died young. 

2

Pierre, by his first wife, born probably in Nova Scotia in c1764, also may have died young. 

3

Éloi, by his second wife, died at Ascension, age unrecorded, in October 1772. 

4

Grégoire-Raphaël, by his second wife, died in Ascension 5 days after his birth in October 1773.

5

Guille or Guillaume-Raphaël, called Raphaël, from his second wife, born at Ascension in January 1775, married Marie-Madeleine, called Madeleine, daughter of fellow Acadian Paul Braud, at Ascension in November 1792.  Their son Augustin- or Auguste-Valéry, called Valéry, was baptized at Ascension, age unrecorded, in September 1793, Polycarp was born in January 1802 but died at age 3 1/2 in September 1805, Henri was born in November 1808, and Terence Joseph or Jean posthumously in August 1815.  Their daughters married into the Babin, Broussard, Dupuis, Landry, and Tregle families.  Raphaël died in Ascension Parish in April 1815; the Donaldson priest who recorded the burial did not bother to give any parents' names or even Raphaël's age at the time of his death, but the priest did call Raphaël "spouse of ___ Braud," so there is no doubt that this was him; Raphaël was only 40 years old when he died.  

5a

Augustin Valéry married cousin Constance Céleste or Célestine, called Céleste, daughter of Eusèbe Landry, at the Donaldson church, Ascension Parish, in June 1818.  Their son Valéry Didier was born in Ascension Parish in May 1819.  Céleste died a week after son Valéry Didier was born; she was only 19 years old.  Augustin Valéry remarried to cousin Rose or Marie Hortense, called Hortense, daughter of Désiré Landry, at the Donaldson church in March 1822.  Their son Auguste Dorsini, called Dorsini and Dorsino, was baptized at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, age 5 months, in January 1826, and Raphaël le jeune in April 1827 but died less than 2 weeks later.  Augustin Valéry died in Ascension Parish in August 1852; the priest who recorded the burial said that Augustin Valéry died at "age 60 years." 

Dorsini married Marie Roselia or Rosella, daughter of fellow Acadian Alexandre Braud, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in February 1843.  Their son Raphaël Dorsini was baptized at the Donaldsonville church, age unrecorded, in October 1845 but died at age 8 in September 1853, Alexandre Sylvestre or Sylvestre Alexandre was born in January 1848, and André Jackson in August 1851.  Their daughter may have married into the Barland family.  Dorsini remarried to cousin Madeleine, daughter of fellow Acadian Ursin Babin and widow of Gervais Gautreaux, at the Donaldsonville church in April 1856; they had to secure a dispensation for third degree of both consanguinity and affinity in order to marry.  Their infant child, name and age unrecorded, perhaps a son, died in Ascension Parish in July 1857, son Joseph Robert Dorcino was born in August 1864, Vincent Sidney Alphred in September 1866, and twins Joseph Alphred and Louis Albert in January 1870. 

Alexandre Sylvestre, by his first wife, married Marie Malvina, called Malvina, daughter of fellow Acadian Derosin Bourgeois, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in April 1866.  Their son William Alexandre was born in Ascension Parish in June 1868. 

5b

Terence married cousin Marie Antoinette, called Antoinette, daughter of fellow Acadian Alexandre Braud and widow of Nicolas Babin, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in November 1849; they had to secure a dispensation for fourth degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son Théodule Joseph was born in Ascension Parish in December 1850, William Franquelin in November 1852, and Terence, fils posthumously in May 1856 but died at age 10 in July 1866.  Terence, père died in Ascension Parish in October 1855; the Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Terence Jean, as he called him, died at "age 40 years, 31 days." 

6

Youngest son François, by his second wife, born at Ascension in October 1779, died at age 11 months in September 1780. 

~

A Landry who had gone to the Bayou Teche valley with the Broussard party in April 1765 lost his wife probably to childbirth a few months later, and his infant son died the following September.  After his son's death, he joined dozens of his fellow Acadians in an exodus from the Teche to the river and remarried at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, but his line probably did not survive:

Descendants of Mathurin LANDRY (c1737-1823?; ?)

Mathurin Landry, born in Acadia in c1737, married Marie Dugas.  They escaped the British roundup of 1755 and took refuge probably on the Gulf of St. Lawrence shore.  In the early 1760s, the British held them as prisoners of war in Nova Scotia.  They followed the Broussard dit Beausoleil party from Halifax to Louisiana via Cap-Français, St.-Domingue, and reached New Orleans in February 1765.  In April, they followed the Broussards to Bayou Teche.  Marie died in the epidemic that swept through the Teche valley that summer and fall, or she may have died from childbirth.  Their son was born in late July but died the following September, and Marie died three days after her son's birth.  Mathurin did not remain on the Teche but retreated with dozens of other Tech valley Acadians to Cabanocé/St.-Jacques on the river and did not return to the western prairies.  Spanish officials counted him on the right, or west, bank of the river at Cabanocé in April 1766; he was living with a widow and her sons, so he probably was an engagé.  He remarried to a woman whose name has been lost to history probably at St.-Jacques in the early 1770s and moved upriver to St.-Gabriel, where Spanish officials counted him and his wife on the "right bank ascending" in 1777.  By then, he was the father of two daughters, ages 10 and 6, and owned 3 slaves, 12 head of cattle, 14 hogs, and 20 chickens on his 6 arpents of frontage along the river.  He may have died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in August 1823, age 86.  His second wife does not seem to have given him any more sons.  If so, his family line died with him. 

Isidore, by his first wife, born at Attakapas in July 1765, died along the Teche the following September, a victim, perhaps, of the epidemic that killed dozens of his fellow Acadians that summer and fall.

Most of the Landrys who came to Louisiana--at least 129 of them--immigrated from Maryland.  The first contingent from that colony--67 more Landrys--reached New Orleans in September 1766--the largest single Acadian family group ever to reach Louisiana.  They settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, where their cousins from Georgia and Halifax already had gone.  After the arrival of these Maryland exiles, the number of Landrys dramatically increased along the Acadian Coast:

Abraham dit Petit Abram Landry of Pigiguit, age 54, twice a widower, came with nine children--Étienne, age 24, Simon and Anne-Osite, age 22, Marguerite, age 15, Pierre-Abraham dit Pitre, age 14, Élisabeth, or Isabelle, age 12, Joseph dit Le Cadet, age 9, Marie-Madeleine, age 7, and Marie, age unrecorded.  Petit Abram remarried to Claire, daughter of fellow Acadian Étienne Rivet and widow of Bonaventure Foret, probably at nearby Ascension in the 1770s; he was in his early 60s at the time of the wedding.  She gave him no more children.  His daughters married into the Bourgeois, Broussard, and Duhon families, and perhaps into the Savoie family as well, and settled at Ascension and on upper Bayou Lafourche.  His sons settled at Ascension.  Petit Abram died at Ascension in August 1786; he was 74 years old. 

Marie-Anastasie, called Anastasie, Landry of Pigiguit, age 18, Petit Abram's daughter, came with husband Amand Babin of Pigiguit, age 24, and two of his sisters, Élisabeth-Madeleine, age 22, and Marie-Josèphe, age unrecorded.  They settled at Ascension, where Anastasie died in August 1795, in her late 40s. 

René Landry of Pigiguit, age 50, Petit Abram's brother and also a widower, came with five children--Marin, age 18, Félicité, age 16, Olivier, age 13, Joseph dit Dios, age 9, and Firmin, age 6.  René remarried to Anne, daughter of fellow Acadian Abraham Landry (not his brother) and widow of Jean-Baptiste Broussard, probably at Cabanocé in the late 1760s.  She gave him more children, including another son.  Daughter Félicité by his first wife married into the Babin and Melançon families. 

Joseph Landry of Pigiguit, age 56, Petit Abram and René's older brother, came probably with one of his younger brothers.  He was deaf and never married.  He followed his brothers to Ascension. 

Marie-Madeleine Landry of Pigiguit, age 43, sister of Petit Abram et al., came with husband Désiré LeBlanc of Grand-Pré, age 43, and 10 children, ages 24 to 4.  They settled at Cabanocé and Ascension.  Marie-Madeleine remarried to cousin Pierre dit Pierrot à Jaque, son of Abraham Landry and widower of Geneviève Broussard and Euphrosine Gautreaux, at St.-Jacques in February 1778. 

Marie-Josèphe Bourg, age 55, widow of Joseph Landry, came with four children--Marie-Madeleine, called Madeleine, age 19, Marguerite, age 16, Anne-Gertrude, called Gertrude, age 15, and Joseph, fils, called Belhomme, age 14.  Marie-Josèphe did not remarry.  Her daughters married into the Bujole, Comes, LeBlanc, Melançon, Pichoux, and Sierra families.  Daughter Gertrude moved to the western prairies in the late 1770s, but Marie-Josèphe's other daughters settled at Ascension, as did son Joseph dit Belhomme.  Daughter Madeleine, widow of Thomas Comes, Jérôme LeBlanc, and Jean Baptiste Pichoux, died at Ascension in October 1800, age 53.  Daughter Marguerite, widow of Augustin Sierra and Joseph Melançon, died in Ascension Parish in October 1840, age 90.  Joseph dit Belhomme's youngest son, Trasimond, served as lieutenant governor of Louisiana during the late 1840s. 

Pierre dit Pierrot à Chaques Landry, age 45, yet another widower, came with six children--Jean, age 14, Osite, age 13, Jean-Baptiste and Isabelle, age 10, Firmin, age 7, and Paul, age 4.  Pierrot à Chaques remarried to Euphrosine, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Gautreaux and widow of Pierre Granger, probably at Cabanocé in the late 1760s, and remarried again--his third marriage--to Marie-Madeleine, daughter of fellow Acadian Abraham Landry and widow of Désiré LeBlanc, at St.-Jacques in February 1778.  Neither wife gave him more children.  Daughter Osite by his first wife married into the Bujole and Landry families and settled on upper Bayou Lafourche.  Pierrot à Chaques owned 53 head of cattle, 8 horses, 55 swine, and 6 slaves on 11 arpents of frontage at Ascension in 1777, a remarkable number for an Acadian in that place and time.  He died at Ascension in July 1791, age 70.  His sons remained on the river. 

François Landry of Pigiguit, age 44, another widower, came probably with three children--François, fils, age 25, Pélagie, age 17, and Joseph, age 8.  François, père did not remarry and died at Ascension in February 1797, in his mid-80s.  François, fils settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques.  Pélagie married a Landry cousin and settled at Ascension.  Joseph also married at St.-Jacques but settled on upper Bayou Lafourche. 

Ursule Landry, age 42, widow of Jean-Baptiste Babin, came with three children, ages 18 to 10.  They settled at Cabanocé and Ascension, but one of  her daughters moved to the western prairies in the 1770s or 1780s. 

Vincent Landry of Minas, age 39, came with wife Susanne Godin, age 29, and their infant son Charles-Caliste.  They had more children in Louisiana, including another son, and moved from the river to upper Bayou Lafourche by the early 1790s.

Pierre dit La Vielliarde Landry of Pigiguit, age 34, Étienne's brother and another widower, came with four children--Joseph, age 10, Anne-Isabelle, age 7, Pierre-Alexis, age 4, and Fabien, age 2.  Pierre dit La Vielliarde remarried to a Landry cousin at Cabanocé in November 1767.  She gave him more children, including sons.  They, too, moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche.  (Pierre dit La Vielliarde and his first wife, through their son Pierre-Alexis, are ancestors of alligator hunter Troy Landry of the History Channel's popular "Swamp People" series.) 

Étienne Landry of Pigiguit, age 32, Pierre dit La Vielliarde's younger brother, came with second wife Marie-Josèphe Landry and daughter Anastasie, age 9.  Marie-Josèphe was pregnant when they reached New Orleans; son Jean-Baptiste was born at Cabanocé in c1767.  They had more children in Louisiana and also moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche. 

Firmin Landry, age 38, yet another widower, came with four children--Hélène, age 14, Joseph, age 13, Saturin, age 11, and Marie-Madeleine, age 9.  Firmin remarried to fellow Acadian Théotiste dite Sally Thibodeaux, widow of Bonaventure Godin, at either St.-Jacques or Attakapas in c1769 and created a western branch of the family in the Attakapas District. 

Marie-Rose, called Rose, Landry, age 36, came with husband Jean-Baptiste Breau of Pigiguit, age 41, and six children, ages 19 to 7.  They settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques and Ascension.  Rose died at St.-Jacques, a widow, in January 1796, in her late 60s.

Anne Landry of Minas, age 34, widow of Joseph Broussard, came with two sons, ages 14 and 6.  She was pregnant when she got to New Orleans, and son Paul was born in the city the following November.  Anne remarried to René, son of fellow Acadian Abraham Landry, probably at Cabanocé in the late 1760s.  They settled at Ascension. 

Anne Landry, age 29, came with husband Pierre LeBlanc, age 35, and their 7-year-old daughter.  They also moved to Ascension, where Anne died in May 1808, a widow.  The priest who recorded her burial said that Anne was 77 years old when she died, but she was closer to 71. 

Charles Landry, fils of Pigiguit, age 28, still a bachelor came with five of his younger unmarried siblings--Amand-Pierre, age 20, Pélagie, age 17, and Anne, François, and Marie, ages unrecorded.  Charles, fils married twice on the river and took his second wife and a daughter to the Attakapas District in the late 1770s or early 1780s.  Amand and Pélagie already had gone there in the 1770s.  The other siblings remained on the river. 

Jacques Landry of Pigiguit, age 23, brother of Charles, fils et al., came with wife Françoise Blanchard, age 19, and his brother Joseph, age 14.  Jacques and Françoise's children were born in Louisiana.  They settled at Ascension, as did brother Joseph. 

Marie Landry, age 28, came with husband Amand-Paul Gautrot, age 35, and their year-old daughter.  They settled at Cabanocé and Ascension. 

Marie-Josèphe Landry, age 28, evidently came to Louisiana alone.  She married fellow Acadian Paul Foret at New Orleans in c1768 and settled with him at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, where she remarried to Basile, son of Nicolas Le Claire of Québec, in April 1777.  Marie-Josèphe died near Convent, St. James Parish, in May 1818; the priest who recorded her burial said that she was 85 years old when she died, but she was closer to 80.

Anne Landry, age 26, widow of Joseph Melanson, came with two children, ages 6 and 3.  Anne lived for a time at Cabanocé and Ascension, remarried to fellow Acadian Augustin Broussard, and followed him to the Attakapas District in the early 1770s. 

Geneviève Landry, age 22, also came alone.  She married Joseph dit Bellefontaine dit Lincour, son of probably René dit Jean-René Godin dit Valcour, probably at Cabanocé in c1768 and died by August 1770, when her husband was listed in an Ascension census without a wife. 

Basile Landry of Grand-Pré, age 16, came alone.  He married at St.-Jacques in 1776, lived at Ascension, and moved to the Attakapas District in the late 1770 or early 1780s.

René, son of Abraham Landry and Marie Guilbeau, born probably at Pigiguit in c1716, married Marie, daughter of Jacques Thériot, at Grand-Pré in February 1737.  The British deported them to Maryland in 1755.  Colonial officials counted René and four of his children at Oxford, on Maryland's Eastern Shore, in July 1763; Marie had died by then.  René came to Louisiana in 1766 and remarried to cousin Anne, daughter of another Abraham Landry and widow of Jean-Baptiste Broussard, probably at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques in the late 1760s.  She gave him more children, including sons.  Their daughter married a Landry cousin.  Spanish authorities counted them on the left, or east, bank of the river at Cabanocé in 1769 and on the same bank at nearby Ascension in 1770 and 1777.  They owned three slaves in 1777.  René died at Ascension in June 1781; he was 64 years old.  Three of his sons moved to the western prairies and another to upper Bayou Lafourche, but his oldest and youngest sons remained on the river.

Ben married first cousin Estelle, daughter of fellow Acadian Amédée Bourque, at the Convent church, St. James Parish, in April 1867; Estelle's mother was Ben's paternal aunt, Célestine Landry, so he and Estelle had to secure a dispensation for second degree of consanguinity in order to marry.

Valentin Marin died near Convent, St. James Parish, in November 1840.  The priest who recorded his burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Valentin died at "age 51 yrs.," so this probably was him.  Did he marry?

Léger, by his second wife, born probably at Ascension in c1783, married cousin Anne Louise, Élise, Elisa, or Lise, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Babin, at the Donaldson church, Ascension Parish, in October 1807.  They settled in nearby Iberville Parish.  Their son Léger Valsin or Valsin Léger was born in November 1808, Philibert Trasimond in April 1810, Jean Rosémond in January 1812, Duval in October 1813, Marcellin in March 1817, Narcisse Pharon, also called Narcissus Pharas, in October 1818, Colin Suriaque in March 1820, and Gervais Stanislas in March 1828.  Their daughter married into the Melançon family.  Léger died "at his home in Iberville parish" in November 1837; he was only 54 years old.  Despite him many sons, his line may not have survived. 

Jean Rosémond died in Ascension Parish in May 1838.  He was only 25 years old and probably did not marry. 

Léger Valsin married Aspasie, daughter of French Creole Honoré Grégoire, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in June 1839, and remarried to cousin Madeleine, daughter of fellow Acadian Eusèbe Alexandre Babin and widow of Paul Onésime Landry, at the Donaldsonville church in September 1842; they had to secure a dispensation for third degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Valsin Léger, as the recording priest called him, died in Ascension Parish in October 1848; the Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial did not bother to give Valsin Léger's age at the time of his death, but he was a month shy of 40.  Did he father any sons?

Descendants of Jacques LANDRY (c1743-1783; René le jeune, Abraham)

Jacques, second son of Charles Landry and Marie LeBlanc, born probably at Pigiguit in c1743, was deported to Maryland with his family in 1755.  Colonial officials counted him and his siblings at Oxford, on Maryland's Eastern Shore, in July 1763.  He married fellow Acadian Françoise Blanchard probably in Maryland in the mid-1760s.  They followed his family to Louisiana in 1766 and settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, where Spanish officials counted them on the left, or east, bank of the river in 1769 and on the same side of the river at nearby Ascension in 1770 and 1777.  They owned 2 slaves in 1777.  Their daughters married into the Bergeron, Duhon, and Mollere families.  Jacques died at Ascension in December 1783; he was only 40 years old.  Only half of his six sons seem to have created families of their own, and one of them had no sons.

A second Donat, this one a twin, born at Ascension in November 1783 a month before his father died, married cousin Anne, also called Marie Élise or Lise, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Melançon, at Ascension in May 1805; Marie's mother was a Landry.  They settled near the boundary of what became Ascension and Assumption parishes.  Their son Donat, fils died 2 days after his birth in January 1807, Paul Onésime was born in December 1807, Ursin in September 1808, and Joseph Valentin, called Valentin and T.

Valentin by the recording priest, remarried to cousin Marguerite Elina, called Elina, another daughter of Auguste Hyacinthe Landry, at the Donaldsonville church in August 1855; Joseph Valentin was 42 years old at the time of the wedding.  They settled near the boundary between Ascension and Assumption parishes.  Their son Laurent Valentin was born in September 1858, Landry Elphége in March 1859, Barthélémy Alphrede in August 1862, and Alexandre Joseph in March 1869.

Victor-Martin, Donat's twin, married cousin Anne Jeanne, called Jeanette, another daughter of Joseph Melançon, at the Donaldson church, Ascension Parish, in February 1808.  Their son Gédéon was born in Ascension Parish in December 1808, and Joseph Ursin in January 1820.  Their daughters married into the Babin, LeBlanc, and Regauffre families.  Victor died in Ascension Parish in March 1838; he was only 54 years old.  Only his older son seems to have created a family of his own. 

Gédéon married cousin Marie Zulma, called Zulma, Melançon probably in the late 1820s.  Their son Martin was born in Ascension Parish in November 1830 but died at age 5 months in May 1831, Joseph Joachim, called Joachim, was born in February 1832, Joseph Dernon or Dornon in July 1833 but died at age 13 months in August 1834, Gédéon Victor was born in November 1836 but died at age 16 months in March 1838, Joseph Valsin was born in July 1844 but died the following November, and  Joseph Privat Destival was born in August 1845 but died at age 2 in October 1847.  Gédéon died in Ascension Parish in May 1849; the Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Gédéon died at "age 41 years."   Gédéon fathered many sons, but nearly all of them died very young.  One wonders why.  One of his six sons lived long enough to marry and settle in Ascension Parish; the son also died young, but not before fathering a son of his own. 

Joseph Joachim married cousin Marguerite Clara, called Clara, daughter of fellow Acadian Olésime Landry, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in October 1850; they had to secure a dispensation for third degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son Joseph Jackson was born in Ascension Parish in June 1852.  Joachim died in Ascension Parish in July 1852; the Donaldsonville priest who recorded his burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Joachim died at "age 21 years," but he was only 20. 

Descendants of François LANDRY (?-1783?; René le jeune, Abraham)

François, son of Charles Landry and Marie LeBlanc, born probably at Pigiguit, was deported with his family to Maryland in 1755.  Colonial officials counted him and his siblings at Oxford, on Maryland's Eastern Shore, in July 1763.  He followed his siblings to Louisiana in 1766 and settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, where he married fellow Acadian Marie-Rose LeBlanc in May 1768.  François may have died at St.-Jacques in 1783.  The priest who recorded the burial of François Landry, "First Sergeant of Militia," did not bother to give his parents' names, mention a wife, or even give his age at the time of his death. 

Descendants of Joseph LANDRY (c1752-; René le jeune, Abraham)

Joseph, son of Charles Landry and Marie LeBlanc, born probably at Pigiguit in c1752, was deported to Maryland with his family in 1755.  Colonial officials counted him and his siblings at Oxford, on Maryland's Eastern Shore, in July 1763.  He followed his older brother Jacques to Louisiana in 1766 and settled with him at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques.  Spanish officials counted him with his brother's family on the left, or east, bank of the river at Cabanocé in 1769 and on the same side of the river at Ascension in 1770.  He may have been the Joseph Landry who married first to Madeleine LeBlanc and then to Madeleine Babin, widow of Charles Babin, at Ascension in November 1781. One wonders if his family line survived in the Bayou State.

Pierre, perhaps by his second wife, baptized at Ascension, age unrecorded, in December 1785, may have died young. 

Descendants of Jean LANDRY (c1752-?; René le jeune, Germain, Abraham dit Chaques)

1

Older son Toussaint, born near St.-Gabriel in November 1789, died in Ascension Parish in October 1825.  He was only 35 years old and probably did not marry. 

2

Younger son Valéry, born at Ascension in July 1806, died in Ascension Parish in October 1822.  He was only 16 years old.

Descendants of Joseph dit Belhomme LANDRY (c1752-1814; René le jeune, Antoine)

Joseph dit Belhomme, son of Joseph Landry and his second wife Marie-Josèphe Bourg and grandson of Alexandre Bourg dit Bellehumeur, the notary and judge of Grand-Pré, was born probably at Grand-Pré in c1752.  He was deported with his family to Maryland in 1755.  Colonial officials counted them at Oxford, on Maryland's Eastern Shore, in July 1763.  Joseph, fils came to Louisiana with his widowed mother and three sisters in 1766 and settled with them at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, where he was called Belhomme.  Spanish officials counted him alone on the right, or west, bank of the river at Cabanocé in 1769, and with his widowed mother on the same side of the river at nearby Ascension in 1770.  He married Élisabeth, or Isabelle, daughter of fellow Acadian Désiré LeBlanc, at Ascension in April 1775.  She gave him a son.  Joseph dit Belhomme remarried to Anne, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Bujole, at Ascension in November 1779; Anne was a sister of Joseph's sister Gertrude's husband Augustin.  Joseph and Anne's daughters married into the Constant, Duffel, Hopkins, LeBlanc, Pedesclaux, Poursine, and Vives families.  Joseph served as lieutenant of the Ascension company of militia in 1794, was ad interim commandant of Acadians at Ascension from 1799 to 1803, elected to the Louisiana state Senate from the County of Acadia in July 1812, owned New Hope Plantation in Ascension Parish, where he grew indigo, sugar, and corn, and was one of the largest slaveholders in Louisiana.  He also owned a retail sugar business.  He died in Ascension Parish in October 1814; he was 62 years old.  According to one source, he was paid high tribute by the church; a mausoleum was dedicated to him and his family at the Church of the Ascension in Donaldson, today's Donaldsonville.   His sons became major sugar planters in Ascension and St. James parishes, and, following in his father's political footsteps, youngest son Trasimond served as lieutenant governor of Louisiana during the late 1840s.  Several of his grandsons married first cousins.  One grandson lived in Missouri.  Another grandson commanded the famous Donaldsonville Artillery, an old militia company which, as volunteers, fought under General R. E. Lee during the War of 1861.

Oldest son Louis, by his first wife, born at Ascension in May 1776, described by the recording priest as a "soldier of the militia," married Marguerite-Carmelite, called Carmelite, daughter of Jean Vives of Spain, at Assumption on upper Bayou Lafourche in January 1803; Carmelite's mother, also, was a Bujole, and Carmelite was Louis's stepmother's sister.  Louis and Carmelite's son Onésime Théodule was born in Ascension Parish in May 1809, Achille Édouard in April 1812 but died at age 7 in April 1819, and Joseph Théodule was born in c1814.  Their daughters married into the Corvaisier, Dugas, Gaudet, Gourrier, Landry, Morrison, and Templet families.  Louis remarried to French Creole Clémence Lessard, widow of Butler Gilbert, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in January 1824; Louis was 47 years old at the time of the wedding.  Their son Louis Lessard was born in Ascension Parish in December 1824, and Joseph Homere, perhaps called Homere, in September 1827 but was not baptized until March 1834.  Louis died in Ascension Parish in June 1831; the priest who recorded his burial said that Louis was 60 years old when he died, but he was "only" 55; the priest also said that Louis's mother was Anne Bujol, but his date of birth suggests that his mother was his father's first wife, Élisabeth LeBlanc.  Only one of his sons may have carried on the family line.   

1a

Joseph Théodule, by his first wife, while a "res. of Perry County, Missouri," married first cousin Marie Manette, daughter of his uncle Valéry Landry, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in January 1846; they had to secure a dispensation for second degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Joseph Théodule died in Ascension Parish in August 1849; he was only 35 years old.  Did he father any sons?

1b

Louis Lessard, by his second wife, married cousin Delia, daughter of his first cousin Achille Landry, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in September 1852; they had to secure a dispensation for third degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Louis Lessard died in Ascension Parish in February 1853; the Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to given any parents' names or even mention a wife, did not give Louis Lessard's age at the time of his death, only his name; Louis Lessard would have been only 28.  Did he father any sons? 

1e

Joseph Homere, by his second wife, may have married Emilia or Amelia Chestnut, Chesnot, or Cesnet and settled near the boundary between Ascension and St. James parishes.  Their son Julien Omere was born in December 1854, and Alexandre in September 1860 but died at age 9 1/2 in April 1870. 

2

Achille-Toussaint, called Toussaint, from his second wife, born at Ascension in November 1784, married Marie Modeste, called Modeste, daughter of fellow Acadian Amand Braud, at St.-Jacques in August 1806.  Their son Joseph was born in Ascension Parish in July 1807, Joseph Achille, called Achille, near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in February 1809, Francois Amédée, called Amédée, in November 1809, Pierre Théodule, called Théodule, in December 1814, and Joseph Gustave in December 1818.  Their daughters married into the Beaman, Martin (Foreign French, not Acadian) and Turnillon families.  Achille Toussaint died in Ascension Parish in November 1823; he was only 39 years old.  His widow remarried to Achille's younger brother Jean Trasimond. 

2a

Joseph married first cousin Marie Edelvina or Ethelvina, daughter of his uncle Narcisse Landry, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in June 1827; they had to secure a dispensation for second degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son Pierre was born in Ascension Parish in January 1831, Lazare St. Jacques, also called Lazare Louis Jacques and L. St. James, in December 1833, Louis Aubrey near Convent, St. James Parish, in June 1836, and Pierre Armand, called Armand, in October 1837 but died at age 6 in October 1843.  Marie Ethelvina died in Ascension Parish in November 1844; the Donaldsonville priest who recorded her burial said that she died at "age 36 yrs., 11 months," a widow.  One wonders when Joseph died. 

Lazare St. Jacques married cousin M. Mélanie, called Mélanie, daughter of Jean Baptiste Noël Jourdan, at the Convent church, St. James Parish, in January 1859; they had to secure a dispensation for third degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son Joseph Alfred was born near Convent in March 1861, Joseph St. Jacques in July 1862, Joseph Pierre Louis in March 1866, and Joseph Denis Albert in October 1867.  During the War Between the States, Lazare St. Jacques, called L. St. James in the Confederate record, served as a private in two Louisiana artillery units that fought in Kentucky, Missouri, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Alabama.  He enlisted in the hard-fought Watson Battery at Corinth, Mississippi, in June 1862, several weeks after the unit had seen action at the Battle of Shiloh, Tennessee, in April; he was 28 years old at the time of his enlistment and the father of two sons, the youngest of whom had been born less than two months before he enlisted.  Lazare St. Jacques followed his unit back to Louisiana and was captured and paroled with them at Port Hudson, Louisiana, in July 1863.  He and his fellow gunners waited for exchange in a parolee camp at Enterprise, Mississippi.  While waiting for exchange, Lazare must have found time to visit his family in St. James Parish in the fall of 1863; daughter Marie Agnès was born near Convent in June 1864.  In late 1863, Confederate authorities de-commissioned the Watson Battery, and most of the men served in a Mississippi battery.  Lazare St. Jacques, however, enlisted in another Louisiana unit, Holmes's Battery, which was organized at Clinton, Louisiana, in March 1864.  The battery saw action at Woodville, Mississippi, in October 1864.  Captain Holmes and many of his gunners were captured in the fight; nonetheless, a superior officer described Holmes's unit as "the most efficient arm of the [artillery] service" in the region.  Lazare St. Jacques evidently was among the unit's gunners who escaped capture, and he likely served for a time in Bradford's Mississippi Battery.  In early 1865, the remnants of Holmes's Louisiana Battery, including Lazare St. Jacques, was assigned to the fortifications at Mobile, Alabama, where they manned the guns in Battery Missouri.  In March 1865, Lazare St. Jacques was assigned temporarily to department headquarters at Mobile.  He and his fellow Confederates evacuated the city in April 1865 and surrendered with other Confederate forces under Lieutenant General Richard Taylor at Meridian, Mississippi, in May 1865.  As the birth of his third son attests, Lazare St. Jacques returned to his family and resumed his life in St. James Parish. 

2b

Achille married Marie Gertrude, called Gertrude, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Blanchard, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in October 1831.  They settled near the boundary between Iberville and Ascension parishes.  Their son Joseph Trouard was born in February 1838 but died at age 2 1/2 in July 1840.  Their daughters married into the Degelos, Landry, and Lessarde families.  Achille remarried to Anne Marie Aureline, Aurelie, or Azeline, daughter of fellow Acadian Éloi Blanchard, at the St. Gabriel church in February 1843.  They also settled near the boundary between Iberville and Ascension parishes.  Their son Jean Ovide, called Ovide, was born in December 1843 but died at age 11 1/2 in July 1855, and Elphége Éloi Toussaint was born in February 1845 but died at age 10 1/2 in October 1855.  Achille died in Ascension Parish in April 1870; the Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Achille died at "age 62 years," but he was only 61.   

2c

François Amédée married first cousin Marie Anne Emma, called Emma, another daughter of his uncle Narcisse Landry, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in August 1834; they, too, had to secure a dispensation for second degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son Joseph Octave was born in Ascension Parish in June 1835, and Amédée Louis in August 1841.  François Amédée, while "domiciled in New Orleans," remarried to Marie Louise, daughter of fellow Acadian Evariste Mire of St. James Parish, at the St. James church, St. James Parish, in January 1848.  Their son Evariste Amédée was born in St. James Parish in March 1850. 

2d

Pierre Théodule married Marie Alvina, daughter of fellow Acadian Eugène Gaudet, in a civil ceremony in Mississippi in September 1841, and sanctified the marriage at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, the following day.  They lived near the boundary between Ascension and St. James parishes.  Their son Théodule Eugène was born in March 1843, Nicholas Siméon in January 1847 but died the following August, and Joseph Armand, called Armand, was born in May 1852 but died at age 6 1/2 in October 1858.  Pierre Théodule remarried to Marie Louise, daughter of Napoléon Dupont, at the Convent church, St. James Parish, in February 1866; Marie's mother was a Dupuis

Jules, as the recording priest called him, remarried again--his third marriage--to cousin Carmelite, daughter of fellow Acadian Rosémond LeBlanc and widow of Edmond Melançon, at the Donaldsonville church in April 1848.  Joseph Jules died in Ascension Parish in January 1870; the Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Jules died at "age 59 years"; Joseph Jules would have been a month shy of that age. 

3b

Philippe Ursin, fils may have married Emma Marguerite or Marguerite Emma St. Martin at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in March 1853.  Their son Joseph Atanas was born in Ascension Parish in December 1853, Paul Cleopha in September 1855, Jean Edgar in November 1857 but died at age 8 in February 1866, Pierre L. was born in March 1864, and Joseph Théodule Ursin, called Théodule, in March 1866 but died at age 2 1/2 in October 1868.

Youngest son Jean-Trasimond, called Trasimond, from his second wife, born at Ascension in December 1795, served as a second lieutenant in the Seventh Regiment Louisiana Militia during the War of 1812.  He was appointed paymaster of Sixth Regiment Ascension Parish Militia in May 1814 and commanded a militia company in December 1814, when he was only 19.  In March 1815, after the Battle of New Orleans, he joined St. Martin's Company Militia at Camp Hopkins on Bayou Lafourche.  In January 1817, two and a half years after his father's death, he helped form a family partnership to manage his father's plantation, New Hope, a share of which he acquired in March 1821.  Not yet age 30, he was elected to the Louisiana House of Representatives in July 1824 and served until his resignation in 1831.  He married Marie Modeste, called Modeste, daughter of fellow Acadian Amand Braud and widow of older brother Achille, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in August 1825.  Their son Jean Trasimond, fils was born in Ascension Parish in March 1831, and Samuel Joseph in October 1832.  Their daughters married into the Landry and Pedesclaux families.  Trasimond served as a delegate to the Democratic national conventions of 1828 and 1836.  In 1833, he was appointed to solicit subscriptions to the Citizen's Bank of New Orleans.  He was elected to the Louisiana state senate in 1832 and became the state's lieutenant governor in 1846.  He was, in fact, the first lieutenant governor in Louisiana state history, and served as a Whig.  During the War of 1861, while in his late 60s, he served as a colonel in the Louisiana state militia.  Trasimond died in Ascension Parish in October 1873; he was 78 years old; he was buried in the Ascension church cemetery, Donaldsonville. 

6a

Samuel Joseph died in Ascension Parish in November 1854.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Samuel died at "age 22 years."  One wonders if he married.

The second contingent of Landrys from Maryland--40 more members of the family--reached New Orleans via Cap-Français, St.-Domingue, in July 1767; they were the largest Acadian family group to come to Louisiana that year and one of the largest single Acadian family groups to reach the colony.  Like the 1766 arrivals, these Landrys were from the Minas Basin and had been deported to Maryland in the fall of 1755.  They would have preferred to join their many relatives and fellow exiles at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, but Spanish governor Ulloa insisted that they settle in a new Acadian community, St.-Gabriel d'Iberville, on the river above Cabanocé and Ascension.  Communication between St.-Gabriel and the Acadian settlements below was easy via the river, so this second contingent of Maryland arrivals acquiesced into going there, adding substantially to the number of Landrys on the Acadian Coast. 

Jean-Baptiste Landry of Pigiguit, age 57, a widower, came with five children, Marguerite, age 30, Marie-Madeleine, age 20, Marie-Rose, called Rose, age 18, Jean-Athanase, age 16, and Marie-Perpétué, age 13.  Jean-Baptiste did not remarry.  His daughters married into the Breaux, Landry, and Richard families and remained at St.-Gabriel.  Jean-Baptiste died before February 1777, when he was listed as deceased in a daughter's marriage record.  Daughter Rose died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in August 1821, in her early 70s.  Son Jean-Athanase moved on to Ascension and upper Bayou Lafourche.

Hyacinthe Landry, age 24, Jean-Baptiste's older son, came with wife Marguerite Landry, also age 24, and no children.  They remained at St.-Gabriel, where their children were born. 

Anne Flan of Port-Royal, age 56, widow of Alexandre Landry, came with six children--Anselme, age 38, still a bachelor, Paul-Marie, age 23, Firmin, age 19, Marie-Marguerite, called Marguerite, age 16, Jean, age 14, and Anne, age 12.  A daughter named Josèphe, who would have been age 20 in 1767, also may have come with them. They remained at St.-Gabriel.  Daughter Anne married into the Richard family.  Marguerite married into the LeBlanc family and died a widow at St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in April 1814, in her early 60s. 

Augustin Landry, "père," of Pigiguit, age 48, came with second wife Marie-Madeleine Babin, age 49, and six children--Marie, age 20, Joseph-Marie, age 19, Joseph-Ignace, called Ignace, age 14, Mathurin, age 12, Marguerite, age 5, and Madeleine, age 3.  They remained at St.-Gabriel and had no more children.  Augustin died at St.-Gabriel in May 1781, age 62.  Daughter Marguerite married into the LeBlanc family and, like her brothers, settled at St.-Gabriel, where she died in July 1834, in her early 70s.  Daughter Madeleine may also have married into the LeBlanc family and settled at St.-Gabriel, where she may have died in June 1786, in her early 20s.

Jean Landry, age 23, came with wife Ursule Landry, age 30, daughter Élisabeth or Isabelle, age 11, brother-in-law Joseph Landry, age 24, and orphan Marie ____, age 4 1/2.  They remained on the river.  Joseph may have settled at nearby Ascension.

Anne Landry, age 27, came with husband Alexandre Hébert of Grand-Pré, age 31, and no children.  They remained at St.-Gabriel but had no children.  Anne died there in October 1788; the priest who recorded her burial said that she was 46 years old when she died. 

Another Anne Landry, also age 27, came with husband Joseph Hébert, age 27, and an infant daughter.  They remained at St.-Gabriel, where Anne died a widow in September 1802; she was 62 years old. 

François-Sébastien Landry, age 26, came with wife Marguerite LeBlanc, age 23, and two daughters--Rose, or Rosalie, age 3, and infant Isabelle.  They had more children in Louisiana and moved to upper Bayou Lafourche. 

Athanase Landry, age 25, came with wife Marie-Madeleine Hébert, age 24, and no children.  They remained at St.-Gabriel, where their children were born. 

Marie-Josèphe Landry, age 25, came alone.  She married cousin Pierre dit La Vielliarde, son of Pierre Landry and widower of Élisabeth Dupuis, at St.-Gabriel in November 1767 and settled on upper Bayou Lafourche.

Descendants of Jean LANDRY (c1732-; René le jeune, Germain)

Jean, son of Abraham dit Chaques Landry and Marie-Isabelle Blanchard, born probably at Pigiguit in c1732, was deported to Maryland in 1755, where he married cousin Ursule, daughter of Pierre Landry, in c1755.  Colonial officials counted them at Oxford, on Maryland's Eastern Shore, in July 1763.  They came to Louisiana with a daughter, her brother, and a young orphan in 1767 and settled near St.-Gabriel.  Their daughter married into the Melançon family.  Jean may have fathered no sons, at least none who established families of their own.  If so, this line of the family, except for its blood, would have died with him. 

Pierre LANDRY, fils (c1737-1780; René le jeune, Germain)

Joseph-Ignace, called Ignace, second son of Augustin Landry and his second wife Marie-Madeleine Babin, born probably at Pigiguit in c1753, was deported with his family to Maryland in 1755.  Colonial officials counted him with his family at Upper Marlborough in July 1763.  He came to Louisiana with his family in 1767 and settled near St.-Gabriel.  He married cousin Scholastique, daughter of fellow Acadian Antoine Braud and sister of his brother Mathurin's wife, at nearby Ascension in February 1776; Scholastique's mother was a Landry.  Their daughter married into the Hébert family.  Joseph-Ignace remarried to Olive-Élisabeth, or -Isabelle, called Élisabeth, daughter of fellow Acadian Honoré Braud, at St.-Gabriel in October 1787.  Olive-Élisabeth had come to Louisiana aboard La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships from France, in 1785.  His older married sons settled in Iberville Parish, his younger sons in West Baton Rouge Parish. 

1

Oldest son Louis, by his first wife, baptized at St.-Jacques, age unrecorded, in May 1777, may have died young. 

2

Joseph-Manuel or Manuel-Joseph, called Manuel or Emmanuel, from his first wife, born near St.-Gabriel in August 1781, married Clarisse Céleste, called Céleste, daughter of French Creole Pierre Bruneteau, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in February 1808; Céleste's mother was an Hébert.  Their son Manuel Dorville was born near St. Gabriel in September 1809, and Jean in c1812 but died at age 11 in March 1823.  Their daughters married into the Bujole and Leveque families.  Emmanuel died near Brusly, West Baton Rouge Parish, in December 1854; he was a widow (his wife had died in August 1853, age 59, perhaps a victim of the yellow fever epidemic that struck South Louisiana during the summer and fall of that year); the priest who recorded Emmanuel's burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that he died at "age 70 yrs."; Joseph Manuel would have been 73.  Did this family line, except for its blood, die with him? 

3

Joseph-Auguste, by his first wife, born near St.-Gabriel in January 1783, may have died young. 

4

Élie, by his second wife, born near St.-Gabriel in February 1790, married Henriette, daughter of fellow Acadian Charles Hébert, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in January 1813.  They settled probably in West Baton Rouge parishes.  Their son Maximilien was born in July 1816, Jean Dresimond, probably Trasimond, in July 1818, Adolphe in September 1820, Octave in October 1825, Drosin in February 1828, and Joseph Jules in January 1831.  Their daughters married into the Babin, Hébert, Landry, and Trosclair families.  Élie may have remarried to Azélie, perhaps also called Julie, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph LeBlanc and widow of Firmin Guidry, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in December 1841; if so, Élie was 51 years old at the time of the wedding.  Élie died near Brusly in July 1848; he was 58 years old. 

4a

Maximilien, by his first wife, may have married French Creole Hermance Saizan and settled in Pointe Coupee Parish by the early 1840s. 

4b

Jean Trasimond (not to be confused with the lieutenant governor's son who bore the same name and who also settled in West Baton Rouge Parish), by Élie's first wife, may have married cousin Marie Amelie, Ameline, Amelina, or Amelise Landry at Baton Rouge by the early 1840s.  They settled near Brusly, West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their son Joseph Ursin was born in May 1853, Jean Albert, perhaps called Albert, in May 1855 but may have died at age 10 1/2 in February 1866, and Ignace Élie was born in February 1857.  Their daughter married into the Duilhet family.

7

Another Narcisse, by his second wife, born near St.-Gabriel in January 1796, was a resident of Baton Rouge when he married Marguerite or Marie Carmelite Hernandez, called Carmelite, daughter of fellow Acadian Simon Hébert, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in February 1819.  They settled probably in West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their son Pierre Bélisaire, called Bélisaire, was born in June 1824, Joseph Amédée, called Amédée, in December 1828, Trasimond in August 1839, and Simon Alcide near Brusly in August 1845.  Their daughters married into the Bourg, Bujole, Hébert, Molaison, and Rivet families. 

7a

Pierre Bélisaire married cousin Lise Élizabeth, also called Marguerite Lise, daughter of Joseph Augustin Leveque, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in May 1851; Lise's mother was a Landry; they had to secure a dispensation for third degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son Robert Bélisaire was born near Brusly in December 1855.

Joseph Valérien married Mathilde, daughter of fellow Acadian Zéphirin Daigre, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in January 1848.  Their son Adolphe Odilon was born near Baton Rouge in June 1860.

Descendants of Mathurin LANDRY (c1755-1808; René le jeune, Antoine, Pierre)

Mathurin, third and youngest son of Augustin Landry and his second wife Marie-Madeleine Babin, born at either Pigiguit or in Maryland in c1755, was deported with his family to Maryland in 1755.  Colonial officials counted him and his family at Upper Marlborough in July 1763.  He came to Louisiana with his family in 1767 and settled near St.-Gabriel.  He married cousin Perpétué, daughter of fellow Acadian Antoine Braud and sister of his brother Joseph-Ignace's wife, at nearby Ascension in May 1779; Perpétué's mother was a Landry.  Their daughter married into the LeBlanc family.  Mathurin remarried to cousin Marie-Apolline, called Apolline, daughter of fellow Acadian Amand Hébert, at St.-Gabriel in February 1800; Apolline's mother was a Landry.  They settled in what became West Baton Rouge Parish and near Plaquemine in what became Iberville Parish.  Their daughter married into the Bernard du Montier (French Creole, not Acadian) family.  Mathurin died probably near Plaquemine in January 1808; he was only 53 years old.

Deozor married Elisa, daughter of fellow Acadian Dominique Labauve, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in June 1851. 

François married Lutecia, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Baptiste Labauve, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in March 1867.

2

Pierre-Dosité, by his first wife, born near St.-Gabriel in December 1781, may have died young. 

3

3b

Ulysse may have died "at Matamoros, Mexico," in July 1846.  He was only 19 years old, a victim, perhaps, of illness or wounds suffered in the war with Mexico.  Amazingly, his body was returned to his family, and he was buried near Brusly, West Baton Rouge Parish, in April 1847.  Sadly, the priest who recorded his burial did not bother to give Ulysse's parents' names, but this probably was him.  Ulysse evidently did not marry. 

4

Ursin, by his first wife, born near St.-Gabriel in May 1791, married Marie Eméranthe, called Eméranthe, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Baptiste Hébert, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in January 1813.  They settled probably in West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their son Ursin Amédée, called Amédée, was born in March 1827, Joseph Alfred in September 1832, and Jean Baptiste Oscar, called Oscar, in December 1834.  Their daughters married into the Bernard du Montier (French Creole, not Acadian), Dupuy, Labauve, and Martinez families.  Ursin died by May 1850, when he was listed as deceased in a daughter's marriage record. 

4a

5

Landry, by his second wife, born probably near Plaquemine, present-day Iberville Parish, in April 1803, married Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadian Zéphirin Daigre, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in August 1828.  They settled on the west side of the river near Plaquemine, Iberville Parish.  Their son Ulysses Mathurin was born in July 1829, and Jules in August 1832.  Their daughters married into the Barthélémy (French Creole, not Acadian) and Fabre families.  Landry may have remarried to French Creole Marie Delphine, called Delphine, Villier, Villiers, Devillier, or Devilliers, also called Greau, in a civil ceremony in either Iberville or West Baton Rouge Parish by the mid-1840s.  Their son Louis was born near Plaquemine in December 1851.  Their daughter married into the Chutz family at Lakeland, Pointe Coupee Parish.  Landry may have died in West Baton Rouge Parish in October 1855; the Brusly priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Landry died at "age 50 years"; this Landry would have been 52 1/2.  A 16-year-old daughter died near Lakeland in May 1864, so one wonders when the family moved to Pointe Coupee. 

6

Youngest son Jean Dorville, called J. Dorville and Dorville, from his second wife, born probably near Plaquemine, present-day Iberville Parish, in December 1804, married Marie Aureline, called Aureline, another daughter of Louis Daigre, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in February 1827.  They settled in West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their son Célestin was born in February 1828, Adolphe Dorville or Dorville Adolphe in September 1833, Jean Damas in February 1840, and Louis Mathurin in February 1849 but died the following June.  They also had a son named Adonis, unless he was Jean Damas.  Their daughters married into the Babin and Landry families.  Dorville likely died near Brusly, West Baton Rouge Parish, in August 1864; the priest who recorded the burial did not bother to give any parents' names, mention a wife, or even give the age of the deceased, whom he called Dorvil; Jean Dorville would have been 59 years old. 

6a

Adolphe Dorville married cousin Marie Octavine, daughter of fellow Acadian Hilaire Bergeron, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in May 1855; Marie's mother was a Landry.  Adolphe remarried to Eliza, daughter of Joseph Berret, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in June 1866; Eliza's mother was a LeBlanc.

6b

Adonis married Emma, daughter of fellow Acadian Eusilien Broussard, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in April 1861.  They were living near Lakeland, Pointe Coupee Parish, where few other Acadians settled, in the late 1860s. 

~

A third contingent of Landrys from Maryland--22 more members of the family-- reached New Orleans from Port Tobacco in February 1768 with the large extended family led by Alexis and Honoré Breau of Pigiguit.  Governor Ulloa forced them to settle at Fort San Luìs de Natchez, north of Baton Rouge, far from their kinsmen on the Acadian Coast.  A French-Creole-led revolt overthrew Ulloa later that year; the Breaus and their kinsmen no doubt applauded the ouster of the unpopular governor.  Ulloa's successor, General Alejandro O'Reilly, at the head of a substantial military force from Cuba, established formal Spanish rule in the colony in the summer of 1769.  He ordered the consolidation of Spanish defenses on the river and allowed the Acadians to leave Fort San Luìs de Natchez.  After their release from the isolated settlement, the Landrys at Natchez moved downriver to the Acadian Coast and even to the western prairies:

Catherine Landry of Minas, age 48, widow of Antoine Babin, came with seven children, ages 22 to 4.  They moved to Ascension. 

Basile Landry of Pigiguit, age 41, came with wife Brigitte Boudrot, age 36, and two daughters--Susanne-Marie, age 12, and Madeleine, age 2.  They moved to the Attakapas District. 

Joseph Landry of Pigiguit, age 38, came with wife Marie-Madeleine Boudrot of Pigiguit, age 35, and three children--Joseph, fils, age 13, Simon, age 5, and Madeleine, age 3.  They moved to Ascension, where Joseph, père died in the early 1770s.  Joseph, fils moved on to the western prairies, and Simon may have settled at Ascension. 

Marie-Josèphe Landry, age 31, came with husband Joseph-Charles Breau of Pigiguit, age 34, and four children, ages 8 to infant.  They moved to St.-Gabriel, where Marie-Josèphe died a widow in October 1807, age 70. 

Mathurin Landry, age 34, came with wife Marie Babin, age 28, and two children--Marie-Ludivine, age 6, and Marcel, age 2.  Mathurin remarried to cousin Anne Landry, widow of ____ Dugas, at New Orleans in c1768.  They settled at Cabanocé and Ascension. 

Marguerite Landry, age 33, widow of Simon-Pierre Breau, came with five daughters, ages 14 to infant.  They settled on the Acadian Coast. 

Marguerite Landry, age 32, came with husband Antoine Breau, age 32, and five children, ages 17 to 4.  They settled at St.-Gabriel, where Marguerite died a widow in December 1790, age 54. 

Rose-Osite, called Osite, Landry, age 30, widow of Janvier Breau, came with three daughters, ages 5 to infancy.  Her daughters settled at St.-Gabriel and Ascension. 

Seven unmarried siblings, children of Joseph Landry of Minas--Madeleine, age 28, Augustin, age 25, Geneviève, age 23, Cécile, age 21, Alexandre, age 18, Pierre, age 16, and Anne-Madeleine, age 14--came to the colony together.  They settled at St.-Gabriel and St.-Jacques.  Madeleine married an Hébert, Geneviève a Bellot, Cécile a Rivet, and Anne-Madeleine a LeBlanc.  Madeleine died at St.-Gabriel in March 1788, in her late 40s.

Anne Landry, widow of ____ Dugas, would have been 22 years old in 1768.  She married cousin Mathurin, son of Abraham Landry, at New Orleans in c1768 and settled with him at Cabanocé and then at Ascension.  Mathurin came to Louisiana from Maryland in 1768, so she, too, may have come to the colony with the Breau party. 

Descendants of Mathurin LANDRY (c1734-1806; René le jeune, Abraham)

Mathurin, second son of Abraham dit Petit Abram Landry and his first wife Élisabeth LeBlanc, born probably at Pigiguit in c1734, was deported with his family to Maryland in 1755.  He married fellow Acadian Marie Babin probably in Maryland in the late 1750s or early 1760s.  Colonial officials counted him, his wife, and a daughter at Port Tobacco, on the lower Potomac River, in July 1763.  They came to Louisiana in 1768 with the party led by the Breau brothers of Pigiguit and were forced to settled at San Luìs de Natchez.  Their daughter married into the Dupuy family.  Mathurin remarried to cousin Anne Landry, widow of ____ Dugas, at New Orleans in c1768.  When the Spanish released the Acadians from Natchez in 1769, Mathurin and Anne settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, where Spanish officials counted them on the right, or west, bank of the river in 1769 and on the same side of the river at nearby Ascension in 1770 and 1777; they owned a single slave in 1777.  Their daughters married into the Braud, Bujole, Comes, Dannequin, Dugas, and Gibosset families.  Mathurin, serving as a private in the Ascension company of militia, may have been one of only two soldiers wounded in Spanish Governor Gálvez's campaign against the British at Manchac and Baton Rouge in September 1779; if so, he survived his wound.  He likely was the Maturin[sic] Landry who had a run-in with the Ascension priest, Father Pedro de Zamora, in 1789; the priest threatened to shoot him after Mathurin complained about the good father confiscating a yolk of oxen and a cart from him; the incident, among others, led to the priest's removal from Ascension.  Mathurin died near St. Gabriel in 1806; the priest who recorded his burial said that Mathurin was 73 years old when he died.  Only his younger son created a family of his own and settled in what became Ascension Parish. 

1

Older son Marcel, by his first wife, born in Maryland in c1766, probably died young. 

2

Younger son Joseph-Nicolas, by his second wife, born at Ascension in September 1774, married Susanne Marie Josèphe, daughter of Frenchman Thomas Houardon Calegan, at Ascension in January 1804; Susanne's mother was a Le Prince.  Susanne, born in Morlaix, France, had come to Louisiana aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, with her mother and maternal grandparents in 1785.  Their son Joseph Raymond Tranquille Mathurin, called Joseph Mathurin, was born at Ascension in July 1806, Joseph Ovide, called Ovide, in August 1808 but died at age 15 in August 1823, and Joseph Nicolas, fils, called Nicolas, was born in January 1821.  Their daughters married Gonzales brothers.  Joseph Nicolas, père died in Ascension Parish in November 1827; he was only 53 years old.  His youngest son settled on upper Bayou Lafourche, but his oldest son remained in Ascension Parish. 

2a

Joseph Mathurin married cousin Gertrude Melitine, daughter of Simon Béloni Landry, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in January 1828.  Their son Joseph Thomas was born in Ascension Parish in October 1828.  Joseph Mathurin, called Joseph Nicolas by the recording priest, died in Ascension Parish in October 1829; he was only 23 years old.

Joseph Thomas died in Ascension Parish in November 1848.  He was only 20 years old and probably did not marry.  His family line may have died with him. 

2b

Joseph Nicolas, fils married Marie Carmelite, daughter of Spanish Creole Manuel Suarez, at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in February 1840.  They remained on upper Bayou Lafourche. 

Descendants of Augustin LANDRY (c1743-1791; René le jeune, Jean, René)

Augustin, eldest son of Joseph Landry and Marie-Josèphe Richard, born probably at Grand-Pré in c1743, was deported with his family to Maryland in 1755.  Colonial officials counted him with his family at Port Tobacco, on the lower Potomac River, in July 1763.  He and six of his siblings came to Louisiana in 1768 with the party led by the Breau brothers of Pigiguit and were forced to settled at San Luìs de Natchez.  When the Spanish released them from Natchez in 1769, he moved to St.-Gabriel, where he married fellow Acadian Anne-Marie, called Marie, Foret in the early 1770s.  Their daughters married into the Hébert and Melançon families.  Augustin remarried to cousin Isabelle, daughter of Pierre Landry, at St.-Gabriel in August 1786.  Augustin died at St.-Gabriel in March 1791; he was only 48 years old.  His only son does not seem to have created a family of his own, so, except for its blood, this line of the family probably died with him. 

Simon, baptized at St.-Jacques, age unrecorded, in June 1777, may have died young. 

Descendants of Alexandre LANDRY (c1750-1822; René le jeune, Jean, René)

Alexandre, second son of Joseph Landry and Marie-Josèphe Richard, born probably at Grand-Pré in c1750, was deported with his family to Maryland in 1755.  Colonial officials counted them at Port Tobacco, on the lower Potomac River, in July 1763.  He and six of his siblings came to Louisiana in 1768 with the party led by the Breau brothers of Pigiguit and were forced to settled at San Luìs de Natchez.  When the Spanish released them from Natchez in 1769, he moved to St.-Gabriel, where he married Marie-Modeste, called Modeste, daughter of fellow Acadian Amable Hébert, in February 1786.  Their daughters married into the Hébert, Lanclos, and Rivet families; one daughter settled on the western prairies.  Alexandre died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in November 1822; the priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Alexandre died at "age 70 yrs.," but he was closer to 72. 

1

Oldest son François-Joseph, called Joseph, born near St.-Gabriel in January 1787, married cousin Henriette Marine or Marie Henriette, daughter of fellow Acadian Grégoire Melançon, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in June 1815; Henriette's mother was a Landry.  Their son Joseph Anselme, called Anselme, was born near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in April 1816.  Their daughter married into the Babin and Descoteaux families. 

Anselme married cousin Madeleine Joséphine, called Joséphine, daughter of François Landry, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in February 1837.  Their son Joseph Adrien, perhaps called Adrien, was born in Ascension Parish in March 1840, Siméon Félix in March 1846, and Augustin Telesphore in August 1851.  Their daughters married into the Babin, Landry, and LeBlanc families.  Anselme remarried to cousin Clothilde, daughter of fellow Acadian Paul Babin and widow of François Denoux, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in July 1856; Clothilde's mother was a Landry; Anselme was 40 years old at the time of the wedding. 

Adrien, by his first wife, may have married fellow Acadian Ophelia Babin.  Their son Joseph Étienne was born near Gonzales, Ascension Parish, in December 1865, and Vincent Apollinaire in July 1867.  Adrien remarried to cousin Alice, daughter of Joseph Landry, at the Gonzales church in November 1870; they had to secure a dispensation for third degree of consanguinity in order to marry. 

2

Louis-David, called David, born near St.-Gabriel in July 1790, married cousin Marie Cléonise Célestine, called Cléonise, daughter of fellow Acadian Charles Braud, at the St.-Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in September 1818; Cléonise's mother was a Landry.  Their daughters married into the Cox, Guitteaux, Landry, and Rivet families.  David died near St. Gabriel in November 1822; the priest who recorded the burial, and who did bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that David died at "age 28," but he was 32.  He and his wife seem to have had no sons, so this line of the family, except for its blood, probably died with him.

Youngest son Mathurin, born near St.-Gabriel in July 1794, married Marie Adèle or Azélie, daughter of fellow Acadian Arsène Braud, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in February 1821.  Their son Jean Baptiste Léon was born near St. Gabriel in January 1822 but died at age 10 months the following November.  Mathurin remarried to Marie Élise, Elmire, Eloire, Elvere, Elvina, Elvira, Elvire, or Éloise, daughter of fellow Acadian Olivier Hernandez, at the St. Gabriel church in February 1828.  Their son Victorin was born near St. Gabriel in March 1830, Alexandre Duprélong in January 1831, Joseph Drausin in February 1836 but died at age 1 1/2 in September 1837, Paul Olivier in January 1838, Joseph in March 1840, and Christophe in July 1842.  Their daughters married into the Orcutt and Orillion families.  Their sons settled near Plaquemine, on the west side of the river. 

3a

Victorin, by his second wife, married Marguerite or Marie Élisabeth, daughter of fellow Acadian Xavier Rivet, at the Plaquemine church, Iberville Parish, in October 1856. 

3b

Joseph, by his second wife, married Celina Rivet, perhaps Marie Celina, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Arvillien Rivet.  Their son Edmond was born near Plaquemine, Iberville Parish, in November 1869. 

Pierre LANDRY (c1752-1780s; René le jeune, Jean, René)

Pierre, third and youngest son of Joseph Landry and Marie-Josèphe Richard, born probably at Grand-Pré in c1752, was deported with his family to Maryland in 1755.  Colonial officials counted him with his family at Port Tobacco, on the lower Potomac River, in July 1763.  He and his family came to Louisiana in 1768 with the party led by the Breau brothers of Pigiguit and were forced to settled at San Luìs de Natchez.  When the Spanish released them from Natchez in 1769, he moved to St.-Jacques, where he married Marie-Madeleine, called Madeleine, daughter of fellow Acadian Bonaventure Foret, in February 1777.  They settled at nearby St.-Gabriel.  Pierre died by November 1781, when his wife remarried at St.-Gabriel. Did he father any sons?

Descendants of Simon LANDRY (c1763-; René le jeune, Antoine, Pierre)

Simon, younger son of Joseph Landry and Marie-Madeleine Boudrot, was born in Maryland in c1763.  Colonial officials counted him with his family at Upper Marlborough in July 1763.  He and his family came to Louisiana in 1768 with the party led by the Breau brothers of Pigiguit and were forced to settle at San Luìs de Natchez.  Simon may have married fellow Acadian Françoise Trahan at Ascension in May 1787. 

~

The arrival dates of at least two Landrys who came to Louisiana in the 1760s and settled on the river are difficult to determine:

Rose Landry, age unrecorded, a widow whose husband's name may be lost to history, came with three daughters, Madeleine, Marguerite, and Marie, ages unrecorded.  Where they settled is anyone's guess. 

Marie Landry, born in c1752, married fellow Acadian Charles Thibodeaux probably at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques in c1768.  Spanish officials counted them on the left, or east, bank of the river at St.-Jacques in 1777.  She and her family settled at nearby St.-Gabriel, where she died in June 1798, in her mid-40s.

~

A generation after the first Landry family reached the colony, dozens more came to Louisiana from France in 1785.  These were Landrys from Minas whom the British had exiled to Virginia in the fall of 1755, had deported to England the following year, and repatriated to France in the spring of 1763; and also Landrys from Pigiguit, Cobeguit, and Île St.-Jean whom the British had deported to France in late 1758.  After enduring a quarter century of neglect in the mother county, they took up the Spanish government's offer to start a new life in Louisiana.  Fifty-four of them came to Louisiana aboard five of the Seven Ships.  Most of them chose to go to upper Bayou Lafourche, but some of them settled in river communities:

Charles Landry of Pigiguit, age 56, crossed on Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in late July.  With him were wife Marguerite Boudrot of Pigiguit, age 48, and seven children--Firmin-Pancrace, age 22, Marguerite-Françoise, age 19, Jean-Sébastien dit Bastien, age 18, Louis-Abel, age 14, Jean-Jacques, age 11, Charles, fils, age 8, and François-Marie, age 6.  They followed the majority of the passengers from their ship to Manchac, south of Baton Rouge.  Charles, père and Marguerite had no more children in Louisiana.  Daughter Marguerite-Françoise married into the Breaux and Guidry families and settled at Manchac and at nearby Ascension, where she died in September 1801, in her late 30s.  Charles, père died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in March 1814; he was 84 years old.  Three of his sons remained on the river, and three of them moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche.  Sadly, none of the sons who remained on the river created a family line that survived, but the sons who moved on to Bayou Lafourche created substantial family lines there. 

Anselme Landry, age 42, crossed on Le Bon Papa with wife Agathe Barrieau, age 50.  They had no more children in Louisiana.  They also moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche. 

Marie-Olive Landry, age 18, Anselme's daughter, crossed on Le Bon Papa with husband Paul-Dominique Boudrot, age 22, and their year-old son.  They moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche. 

.

René Landry, age 53, a widower, crossed on La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in early December.  With him were brother-in-law Paul Babin, age 52, and eight children--Marie-Madeleine, age 23, Servanne-Laurence, age 20, Jean-Baptiste-Raphaël, age 18, Marguerite-Josèphe, age 16, Anne-Marie-Jeanne, age 12, Pierre, age 19, Joseph-Marie, age 7, and Jeanne-Guillemette, age 4.  They followed the majority of the passengers from their ship to the new Acadian community of Bayou des Écores, north of Baton Rouge, before moving down to the Baton Rouge area a few years later.  René never remarried.  His daughters married into the Daigre, Doucet, Guidry, and Raffray families.  Most of them remained on the river, as did most of his sons.  One of his daughters and son Joseph-Marie moved on to the western prairies. 

Marie-Anne Landry, age 17, crossed on La Ville d'Archangel with her mother, Anne Thériot, age 36, widow of Joseph Granger, and five stepsiblings, ages 20 to 6.  They moved on to Manchac, south of Baton Rouge, where Marie-Anne married Canary Islander André Martinez in May 1794.  He probably was from the nearby Isleños community of Galveztown.  Marie-Anne may have died near Brusly, West Baton Rouge Parish, in November 1847; the priest who recorded her burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a husband, said that Marie Anne died at "age 75 yrs.," but this Marie Anne would have been 79. 

.

Pierre-Joseph Landry, age 15, came from France in 1785 but does not appear on any of Seven Ships passenger lists.  He settled at Manchac and became a prominent member of the community. 

.

Most of the Landrys who went to river communities in 1785 moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche, but a few remained on the river, at Manchac, Baton Rouge, and St.-Gabriel.  Most of the lines did not survive, but one line, that of Pierre-Joseph of St.-Gabriel, was an especially vigorous one:

Firmin-Pancrace LANDRY (1762-1813; René le jeune, Abraham, Charles)

Firmin-Pancrace, eldest son of Charles Landry, fils and Marguerite Boudrot, born at St.-Servan, France, near St.-Malo, in May 1762, came to Louisiana with his family aboard Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  They settled at Manchac, south of Baton Rouge, where he married Marie-Anne, daughter of fellow Acadian Firmin Babin, in October 1790.  Marie-Anne was a native of Louisiana.  Firmin died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in October 1813; he was only 51 years old.  He and his wife may have been that rare Acadian couple who had no children. 

Louis-Abel LANDRY (1771-1822; René le jeune, Abraham, Charles)

Louis-Abel, third son of Charles Landry and Marguerite Boudrot, born at St.-Servan, France, near St.-Malo, in April 1771, came to Louisiana with his family aboard Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  They settled at Manchac, south of Baton Rouge.  Louis died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in November 1822; he was only 51 years old.  The priest who recorded his burial said nothing about a wife for Louis, so he probably never married. 

Descendants of François-Marie LANDRY (1779-1850; René le jeune, Abraham, Charles)

François-Marie, sixth and youngest son of Charles Landry and Marguerite Boudrot, baptized at Chantenay, near Nantes, France, age unrecorded, in November 1779, came with his family to Louisiana aboard Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  He followed them to Manchac, south of Baton Rouge, before moving on to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he married Constance, daughter of fellow Acadian Charles Babin and widow of Eusèbe Landry, at Assumption in February 1803.  Constance was a native of Louisiana.  They settled in what became Ascension Parish.  Their daughters married into the Babin, Landry, Melançon, and Roth families.  François Marie remarried to Marine, daughter of fellow Acadian Paul Babin, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in July 1831; François Marie was 52 years old at the time of the wedding.  They remained on the river.  François Marie died in Iberville Parish in September 1850; he was 71 years old.  He seems to have had no sons who survived childhood, so this line of the family, except for its blood, may have died with him. 

A son, by his first wife, name unrecorded, died in Ascension Parish a day after his birth in February 1809. 

Jean-Baptiste-Raphaël LANDRY (1767-?; René le jeune?, ?)

Jean-Baptiste-Raphaël, eldest son of René Landry and Marguerite Babin, born at St.-Servan, France, near St.-Malo, in February 1767, came to Louisiana with his family aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  They settled at the new Acadian community of Bayou des Écores, north of Baton Rouge.  Jean-Baptiste-Raphaël may have died young. 

Descendants of Pierre LANDRY (c1776-; René le jeune?, ?)

Pierre, second son of René Landry and Marguerite Babin, born probably at St.-Servan, France, near St.-Malo, in c1776, came to Louisiana with his family aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  They settled at the new Acadian community of Bayou des Écores, north of Baton Rouge, before moving downriver to the Baton Rouge area, where Pierre married Victoire-Eulalie, called Eulalie, daughter of fellow Acadian Olivier Daigre, in February 1802.  Eulalie had come to Louisiana aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships.  Their daughter married into the Henry and Trahan families.  Pierre and Eulalie's only son had many sons of his own. 

Pierre Julien, called Julien, born near Baton Rouge in October 1804, married Marguerite, daughter of Spanish Creole Joseph Martinez, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in February 1827.  They settled near the boundary between East Baton Rouge and Iberville parishes, probably north of Bayou Manchac.  Their son Philippe was born in May 1828, Hermogène in August 1829, Théodore in March 1831, and Alcidonis Fare, also called Alcide Onésiphore, in December 1832.  Their daughter married into the Rivas family. 

Philippe "of East Baton Rouge Parish" married Marie Emma Adélaïde, called Emma, daughter of fellow Acadian Édouard LeBlanc, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in February 1854.  Their son Joseph Arnaud was born near St. Gabriel in November 1854 but died the following February, Joseph Julien was born in June 1858, twins Jean Enos and Omer were born in November 1860, and Philippe, fils was born in August 1862. 

Théodore may have married cousin Marie Lozama or Lozanna Martinez and settled in Iberville Parish by the late 1850s.  They were living near Plaquemine, on the west side of the river, in the late 1860s. 

Alcidonis/Alcide married Clara, daughter of J. H. Rils or Rills, at the Plaquemine church, Iberville Parish, in October 1867; Alcide was 34 years old at the time of the wedding, so one wonders if this was his first marriage.  Their son Julian Hamilton was born near Baton Rouge in November 1868. 

Descendants of Pierre-Joseph LANDRY (1770-1843; René le jeune, Abraham, René)

Pierre-Joseph, called Joseph, son of Pierre Landry and Marie-Josèphe Hébert of Minas, born at St.-Servan, France, near St.-Malo, in January 1770, came to Louisiana in 1785 probably aboard one of the Seven Ships.  He married Marie-Scholastique, called Scholastique, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph-Charles Braud, at St.-Gabriel in June 1790.  Scholastique was a native of Louisiana.  Pierre Joseph remarried to Madeleine or Marguerite Rosalie or Rosalie Marguerite, called Rosalie and Eulalie, daughter of French Creole Bernard Capdeville, at St. Gabriel in January 1804; Rosalie's mother was a Clouâtre.  Their daughters married into the Boush or Bush, Braud, Capdeville, and Rivière families.  During the War of 1812, Pierre-Joseph served as a captain of the 8th Company of Meriam's Regiment of Louisiana Militia; after the war, his contemporaries referred to him as Captain.  He also was an artistic woodworker.  Pierre Joseph died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in March 1843; he was 73 years old.  He fathered nearly a dozen sons by his two wives.  Most of his sons created families of their own.  A plaque highlighting his life and accomplishments stands in the cemetery behind the old church at St. Gabriel. 

1

Oldest son Joseph-Raphaël, called Raphaël, from his first wife, born near St.-Gabriel in June 1791, married Joséphine, daughter of French Creole Manuel Couillard, Cuellar, or Cueller, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in June 1818.  Their son Julian Raphaël was born near St. Gabriel in January 1819 but died in February, Damase was born in December 1819, Jean Timoléon died in December 1820 (the recording priest said he was 14 months old, so was he Damase?), Raphaël Florentin was born in St. James Parish in July 1821 but died at age 3 months the following October, Gustave Raphaël was born near St. Gabriel in December 1823, and Joseph Raphaël, fils in c1828 but died at age 3 in September 1831.  Their daughter married into the Hébert family.  Joseph Raphaël, père may have died near St. Gabriel in October 1828; if so, he would have been only 37 years old. 

Gustave Raphaël married Marie Amelie, daughter of fellow Acadian Valéry Dupuy, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in May 1849.

4

Lazare, also called Azarie, Azary, and Azory, from his first wife, born near St.-Gabriel in August 1798, married Marie Céline or Célestine, another daughter of Jean Baptiste Lambremont, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in January 1823.  Their son Pierre Augustin was born near St. Gabriel in April 1825, Joseph Newville or Neuville, called Neuville, in October 1826, Hermogène in c1829, an infant son, name and age unrecorded, died in June 1830, and twins Jean Diogène, called Diogène, and Paul Théodore were born in March 1835 but Paul Théodore died at age 11 months in February 1836.  They also had a son named Gustave.  Their daughter married into the Allain family.  Lazare died near St. Gabriel in September 1835; the priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Cezary, as he called him, died at "age 38 years"; Lazare would have been only 37, so this probably was him. 

4a

Hermogène died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in November 1847.  He was only 18 years old and probably did not marry.  He was buried in St. Raphaël Cemetery on the west bank of the river.

~

Two Landry brothers whose families moved to Bayou Lafourche during the early antebellum period remained on the Acadian Coast, and, in a reversal of the usual Acadian migration pattern, other Landrys moved from upper Bayou Lafourche to the river during the same period.  These families settled in Ascension and West Baton Rouge parishes: 

Descendants of Jean-Louis LANDRY le jeune (1787-; René le jeune, Abraham, Pierre, Pierre dit La Vielliarde)

Jean Louis le jeune, eldest son of Pierre-Alexis Landry and Rosalie Hébert, born at St.-Gabriel in August 1787, married cousin Anne Marine or Marianne, daughter of fellow Acadian Charles Hébert and sister of brother Armand's wife, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in April 1812.  They settled in what became West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their daughters married into the Enger, Seguin, Thibodeaux, and Trahan families. 

1

Older son Séraphin, born probably in West Baton Rouge Parish in June 1817, may have died young. 

2

Younger son Jean Louis Raphaël, was born probably in West Baton Rouge Parish in March 1832. 

Descendants of Armand-Apollinaire LANDRY (1792-; René le jeune, Abraham, Pierre, Pierre dit La Vielliarde)

Armand Apollinaire, third son of Pierre-Alexis Landry and Rosalie Hébert, born at Ascension in July 1792, married cousin Marie Marthe, called Marthe, daughter of fellow Acadian Charles Hébert and sister of brother Jean-Louis's wife, at the St.-Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in April 1817.  They settled in West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their daughters married into the Bergeron, Dupuis, and Ferbos families.  Did Armand father any sons? 

Descendants of Alexandre LANDRY (1791-; René le jeune, Abraham, Pierre, Étienne)

Alexandre, eldest son of Jean-Baptiste Landry and Marie-Madeleine Hébert, born in Ascension Parish in September 1791, married Judith or Juliette, daughter of fellow Acadian Jérôme Melançon, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in June 1822.  They settled in Ascension Parish.  Their daughters married into the Babin, Gautreaux, and Hébert families.  

1

Oldest son Jérôme, born in Ascension Parish in September 1823, likely married fellow Acadian Julia Anne Brasset and settled in Ascension Parish by the late 1840s.  Their son Albert Jérôme was born in Ascension Parish in December 1858, Alexis Robraud in November 1860, Alexandre in January 1863, and Alcée Prudent near Gonzales in May 1868.  Their daughter married into the Salassi family.

6

Jean Homere, perhaps called Homere or Omer, was born in Ascension Parish in November 1837.  One wonders if he was the Omer Landry who died in Ascension Parish in August 1865; the Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Omer died at "age 30 years," but Jean Homere would have been only 27.

Other LANDRYs on the River

Area church and civil records make it difficult to link many Landrys on the river with known lines of the family there.  The priests at St. Gabriel, Brusly, and Donaldsonville were especially negligent in their recordkeeping.  One suspects that some of the Landrys who lived on the river during the post-war period were Afro Creoles once owned by Acadian Landrys::

Isaac Landry married fellow Acadian Anne Aucoin and settled near Baton Rouge.  Their daughter married into the Daigle family. 

Joseph Landry married fellow Acadian Anne-Marthe Blanchard and settled near Baton Rouge.  Their daughter married into the Hébert family. 

Joseph Landry married fellow Acadian Anastasie LeBlanc and settled at Ascension.  Their daughter married into the Theriot family. 

Pierre Landry married fellow Acadian Anne Theriot and settled near Baton Rouge.  Their daughter married into the Dupuis family. 

Joseph-Athanase Landry married fellow Acadian Madeleine Babin.  Their daughter married into the Theriot family.  Joseph Athanase died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in May 1815.  The priest who recorded his burial, and did not bother to give his parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Joseph Athanse, as he called him, died at "age 40 yrs." 

____ Landry married _____ Gomez at New Orleans in January 1768.  One wonders if this was Marie-Madeleine, daughter of Joseph Landry, who married ship's surgeon Thomas Comes at New Orleans in 1768. 

Augustin-Pierre Landry died at Ascension in February 1784.  He was only 3 years old.  The priest who recorded the boy's burial did not bother to give the parents' names. 

Anselme Landry married fellow Acadian Françoise Blanchard and settled at Ascension.  Their son Rénard was baptized at Ascension, age unrecorded, in January 1786.  Their daughter Françoise married into the Babin and Braud families. 

Ursule Landry died at Ascension in January 1786.  The priest who recorded her burial did not say anything more about her--no parents' names, no husband's name if she had one, no age at the time of her death, only her name and the date of her burial. 

Isabelle Landry died at Ascension in October 1786.  Again, the priest who recorded her burial did not bother to say anything more about her--no parents' names, no husband's name if she had one, no age at the time of her death, only her name and the date of her burial. 

Jean Landry married fellow Acadian Anne Mire and settled at Ascension in the late 1780s. 

René-Marie, son of Pierre Landry and Marie ____, was baptized at Ascension, age unrecorded, in January 1788.  The priest who recorded his burial duly noted the boy's parents' names, but the ravages of time damaged the old parish register, and René-Marie's mother's surname was obliterated.  Which Pierre Landry was his father?

Madeleine Landry gave birth to a son, name unrecorded, at Ascension, but the boy died an infant in August 1788.  The priest who recorded the infant's burial did not give the father's name. 

Marie Landry died at Ascension in January 1790.  The priest who recorded her burial noted that she was 72 years old, but he did not give her parents' names or mention a husband. 

Marguerite, daughter of Athanase Landry, married François-Xavier _____, son of Joseph _____ and Anne Hébert of St.-Malo, France, at St.-Gabriel in July 1790.  Unfortunately, the collection of sacramental records for the Diocese of Baton Rouge, from which this marriage record is taken, fails to give the groom's surname. 

Joseph Landry died at Ascension in October 1790.  He was only 19 months old.  The priest who recorded the boy's burial did not give the parents' names. 

Marguerite-Apolline, called Apolline, daughter of Joseph Landry, married Simon-Raphaël, son of fellow Acadian Amand Babin, at Ascension in January 1796.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not bother to include the parents' names, which were obtained from other records.  One wonders if Marguerite-Apolline was an immigrant or a native of Louisiana. 

Anne Landry died at Ascension in August 1804.  The priest who recorded her burial did not give her age or her parents' names or mention a husband.  One wonders if she was an immigrant or a native of Louisiana. 

Joseph Landry, "called Chinoua," died at Ascension in March 1805.  The priest who recorded his burial, and who did not give his parents' names or mention a wife, said that Joseph dit Chinoua was 51 years old when he died. 

Marie Marthe, daughter of Joseph Landry, married Antoine, son of French Creole Louis Léonard, at St.-Gabriel in February 1806.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give Marie Marthe's mother's name, so one wonders which Joseph Landry was her father. 

Augustin, son of Joseph Landry "of Plaquemine settlement," died probably at Plaquemine, present-day Iberville Parish, in March 1806.  He was only 20 years old and probably did not marry.  The St. Gabriel priest who recorded his burial did not give Augustin's mother's name, so one wonders which Joseph Landry was his father. 

Pierre, son of Joseph Landry "of Plaquemine settlement," died probably at Plaquemine, present-day Iberville Parish, in April 1806.  He was only 23 years old and probably did not marry.  The St. Gabriel priest who recorded his burial did not give Pierre's mother's name, so, again, one wonders which Joseph Landry was his father. 

Joseph Landry, "age 50 of Plaquemine settlement," died probably at Plaquemine, present-day Iberville Parish, in August 1806.  The St. Gabriel priest who recorded this Joseph's burial did not give his parents' names or mention a wife.  One wonders if he was Augustin and Pierre's father. 

Joseph Landry, "age 46, res. of Plaquemine settlement," died probably at Plaquemine, present-day Iberville Parish, in September 1806.  The St. Gabriel priest who recorded this Joseph's burial did not give his parents' names or mention a wife.  One wonders if he was Augustin's and Pierre's father. 

Siméon Landry died in Ascension Parish 7 days after his birth in February 1808.  The priest who recorded the boy's burial did not give the parents' names. 

Pierre, fils, son of Pierre Landry and Anne Gautreaux, married Marie Rosalie, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Templet, at Baton Rouge in June 1808.

Joseph Landry, "dit Jones, age 50, from Attakapas District," died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in January 1809.  The priest who recorded Joseph's burial did not give his parents' names or mention a wife. 

Marie, daughter of René Landry and ____ LeBlanc, died in Ascension Parish in October 1809.  The recording priest noted that she was "nat. Acadia" and 56 years old when she died, but he did not mention a husband.  Who was she? 

Nicolas Landry married Marguerite Chinon.  Their son, name unrecorded, died in Ascension Parish, age 4 months, in January 1812.  Was Marguerite kin to Joseph Landry dit Chinoua?

____ Landry, "Husband of Tamy Landry," died in Ascension Parish in February 1815.  This is all that the priest recorded. 

Jean Baptiste Landry, an orphan, was baptized at the Donaldson church, Ascension Parish, at age 8 in July 1817.  The priest who recorded the boy's baptism did not give the parents' names. 

Félix Landry was baptized at the Donaldson church, Ascension Parish, 5 or 6 days after his birth in September 1817.  The priest who recorded the boy's baptism did not give the parents' names.  

François, son of Jean Landry and Anne Landry, married Marguerite, daughter of Jean Lun.  Their son Élias was born near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in May 1824. 

Victorine Landry married Philippe, son of fellow Acadian Jean Charles Comeaux, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in February 1825.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the bride's parents' names. 

Donat Landry married Ludivine LeBlanc and died by June 1825, when his wife remarried in Ascension Parish.  Was he the Donat Landry who died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, at age 70 in March 1824?  If he was that Donat, and the priest recorded his age correctly, he would have born in c1754--in Acadia.  No Donat Landry appears on the Acadian Memorial's Wall of Names, however, so the age is probably exaggerated. 

Séverin Landry died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in July 1826.  He was only 3 years old.  The priest who recorded the boy's burial did give the parents' names. 

Raphaël Landry died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in October 1828.  Their priest who recorded his burial did not give Raphaël's parents' names, mention a wife, or even give his age at the time of his death. 

Ferdinand Landry died in Ascension Parish at age 1 in January 1829.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded the boy's burial did not give the parents' names.  One wonders if the boy's parents were Ferdinand Landry and Clarisse Landry

Irma Landry married Joseph Garlick at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in January 1830.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Joseph dit Jonny Landry died in Ascension Parish in February 1832.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded his burial, and who did not give his parents' names or mention a wife, said that Joseph Jonny was 30 years old when he died. 

Pierre, son of Joseph Landry, died in Ascension Parish, age 3, in March 1834.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded the boy's burial did not give his mother's name. 

Raphaël Landry died in Ascension Parish at age 3 in September 1834.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded the boy's burial did not give the parents' names. 

Firmin Landry married cousin Marie Felonise or Léonise Landry.  Their son Joseph Audibert was born in Ascension Parish in January 1835. 

Rosémond Landry died in Ascension Parish in March 1835.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded his burial, and who did not give his parents' names or mention a wife, said that Rosémond was 25 years old when he died. 

Désiré Landry married fellow Acadian Phelonise Dugas.  Their son Jacques Théodule was born in Ascension Parish in May 1835. 

Émilie, perhaps Émile, Simon Théodore Landry died in Ascension Parish in September 1835.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial said that "Émilie" was 23 years old when she/he died but did not give any parents' names or mention a husband or wife. 

Valéry Landry died in Ascension Parish in October 1835.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded his burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Valéry was 26 years old when he died. 

Clementine Landry married 21-year-old François Tolmer at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in October 1835.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Jean Landry married fellow Acadian Céleste Arceneaux.  Their son Victorin Martin was born in Ascension Parish in July 1836. 

Isidore Landry died in Ascension Parish in March 1837.  He was only a year old.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded the boy's burial did not give the parents' names. 

Raphaël, son of Édouard Landry, died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in January 1838.   He was only 18 years old when he died and probably did not marry.  The priest who recorded Raphaël's burial did not give his mother's name. 

Trasimond Landry died in Ascension Parish in November 1839.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Trasimond died at "age 24 yrs." 

Marie Iréné Landry, wife of Pierre Landry, died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in December 1840, age 56.  Which Pierre Landry was this, and who were Marie Iréné's parents? 

Delmire Landry gave birth to son Pierre Onésiphore probably in Iberville Parish in December 1840.  The St. Gabriel priest who recorded the boy's baptism in June 1846 did not give the father's name or the mother's parents' names.  (I am assuming that Delmire was a woman.) 

Marguerite Landry's son Victor died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in October 1841.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give a father's name or mention a wife, said that Victor died at "age ca. 26 years."  Did Victor ever marry?

Félicité Landry gave birth to son Antoine Jumonville in Ascension Parish in October 1849.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded the boy's baptism the following March did not give the father's name or the mother's parents' names.

Benjamin dit Beny Landry married Madeleine Landry.  Their son Basile Nicolas was born near Brusly, West Baton Rouge Parish, in March 1851.

Jean Théodule, called Théodule, son of Hippolyte Landry and Marie Lucille ____, married Marie Roselia, daughter of Pierre Cleborn, also called Pierre, perhaps her father's given name, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in December 1851.  Their son Jean Ernest Athos was born in Ascension Parish in October 1852, and Arthur Théodule posthumously in August 1856 but died at age 2 1/2 in March 1859.  Jean Théodule died in Ascension Parish in June 1856; the Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Jean Théodule died at "age 30 years."  

Charles, son of Philippe Landry, died in Ascension Parish in June 1852.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give the mother's name, said that Charles died at "age 14 years."  Which Philippe Landry was this?

.

Landry families that lived on the river during the antebellum period cannot be linked by local church records to other Landrys in the area: 

Descendants of Éloi Joseph LANDRY (?-; René le jeune?)

Éloi Joseph Landry married fellow Acadian Madeleine Cidalise or Sidalise Babin, also called a Landry, probably in Iberville Parish during the early antebellum period.  Their daughter married into the Babin family. 

1

Older son Norbert "of Iberville" married first cousin Elisa, Eliza, or Lisa Cécile, daughter of Auguste Hyacinthe Landry, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in October 1839; Elisa's mother was a Babin; they had to secure a dispensation for second degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  They settled at La Prairie, perhaps today's Prairieville, near the boundary between Ascension and Iberville parishes.  Their son Eustache Butler was born in September 1845.  Their daughters married into the Babin and Marchand families. 

2

Younger son Joseph Napoléon, called J. Napoléon, born in Ascension Parish in October 1833, married Marie Célestine, called Célestine and also Euphrosine, daughter of Acadian Valéry Dupuy, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in September 1853.  They settled near Gonzales.  Their son Eustache Botteler was born in September 1855, Nestor Stephen in August 1864, Joseph in August 1865, and Jean Moïse in February 1868. 

Descendants of Valière LANDRY (c1823-?; René le jeune?)

Valière Landry, born in c1823, married cousin Marie Adèle, called Adèle, teenage daughter of Dorville Landry, at the Brusly church, Baton Rouge Parish, in May 1845.  Their daughter married a Dupuy cousin.  Valière remarried to Mary Virginia, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Ducatel Blanchard, at the Brusly church in October 1885; Mary Virginia was a sister of Valière's son Émile's wife Cécile; Valière was in his early 60s at the time of the wedding. 

1

Oldest son François Osward or Oscar, by his first wife, born near Brusly in July 1846, married Victoria, daughter of Spanish Creole Emmanuel Lopez, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in February 1867; Victoria's mother was a Babin.

2

Dorville Émile, called Émilie, by his first wife, born near Brusly in April 1849, married Cécile, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Ducatel Blanchard, at the Plaquemine church, Iberville Parish, in January 1870; Cécile's sister Mary Virginia would later marry Émile's father.

3

Youngest son Joseph Alcée, by his first wife, born near Brusly in August 1851, married Marie Ophelia, daughter of French Creole Lucien Marrionneaux, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in August 1873. 

LOUISIANA:  WESTERN SETTLEMENTS

The first Landrys to go to the western prairies--a young husband and two young girls--came to Louisiana from Halifax via Cap-Français, St.-Domingue, in February 1765 with the Broussard dit Beausoleil party.  They followed the Broussards to Bayou Teche, but the young husband did not remain there:

Mathurin Landry, age 28, came with wife Marie Dugas.  Marie was pregnant when they reached Louisiana and gave birth to a son, Isidore, on the Teche in late July 1765.  Marie died two days after Isidore was born, probably from complications of childbirth.  Isidore died the following September, perhaps a victim of the epidemic that killed dozens of Teche Acadians that summer and fall.  After his son died, Mathurin fled with dozens of his fellow Acadians to Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, where Spanish officials counted him on the right, or west, bank of the Mississippi in April 1766.  He did not return to the western prairies but remained with his kinsmen on the river, where he remarried. 

Anne Landry, age 11, and her sister Isabelle, age unrecorded, daughters of Jean Landry, came with their mother Madeleine Broussard, age unrecorded, and stepfather Olivier Thibodeau, age 32.  Their mother died giving birth to their half-sister Marguerite-Anne Thibodeau only a few weeks after they settled on Bayou Teche; their mother and sister, in fact, were the first Acadians to die west of the Atchafalaya Basin.  Anne married Joseph, son of fellow Acadian Michel Doucet, at Attakapas in July 1772.  Isabelle may have died young. 

~

It did not take long for a Landry to establish a western branch of the family.  In c1770, an exile from Maryland left St.-Jacques on the river and settled in the Attakapas District, where he created a vigorous family line.  Two of his older daughters married Beausoleil Broussards but died young: 

Hélène, wife of Amand Broussard dit Beausoleil, son of Joseph, died before October 1774, when her husband was listed in an Attakapas census as a widower. 

Marie-Madeleine, wife of René Broussard dit Beausoleil, grandson of Joseph, died before January 1779, when her husband remarried at Attakapas. 

Descendants of Firmin LANDRY (c1728-1801; René le jeune, Germain)

Firmin, son of Alexandre Landry and Marie-Marguerite Blanchard, born at Pigiguit in c1728, married Élisabeth-Françoise Thibodeau at Pigiguit in c1752.  Three years later, the British deported them to Maryland.  Colonial officials counted them at Oxford, on Maryland's Eastern Shore, in July 1763.  Firmin came to Louisiana probably in 1766, a widower with four children and, with the majority of his fellow passengers, settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques on the river, but he did not remain there.  He remarried to Théotiste dite Sally, daughter of fellow Acadian Charles Thibodeaux and widow of Bonaventure Godin, at either St.-Jacques or Attakapas in c1769.  Théotiste, a widow with a small daughter, had come to Louisiana from Halifax in 1765 and had remained with her in-laws on the Acadian Coast.  Firmin's was the first Landry family to remain west of the Atchafalaya Basin.  He and Théotiste settled on upper Bayou Vermilion and also had land at Fausse Pointe on lower Bayou Teche.  Théotiste gave him many more children, including sons.  Firmin's daughters by his first wife married into the Broussard family; his daughters by his second wife married into the Boudreaux, Lapointe, Louvière, Perault, Quebedeaux, and Ransonet families.  Firmin "died suddenly" at Attakapas in February 1801; the priest who recorded his burial said that Firmin was "60 and 16 years," or 76 years old, when he died.  His was not only the first but also one of the largest Landry family lines established on the prairies. 

1

Oldest son Joseph, by his first wife, born in Acadia in c1752, married fellow Acadian Marie-Anne, called Marine, daughter of perhaps Paul Melançon, at Opelousas or Attakapas in the late 1770s.  Marine was a native of Maryland.  They settled at Côte Gelée and on Bayou Vermilion.  Their son Joseph, fils was baptized at Opelousas, age unrecorded, in May 1779, Louis, called Agricole, at age 13 months in April 1780, Cyrille was born at Attakapas in February 1787, Joseph-Denis, called Denis, in December 1788, Pantaléon in c1790, and Maximien or Maximilien, called Maxille dit Simien or Similien, was baptized at age 5 months in November 1795.  Their daughters married into the Babin, Bourg, Duhon, Durio, Prejean, Thibodeaux, and Trahan families, and at least one of them settled on the river.  Joseph, père died probably at Côte Gelée in June 1797; the priest who recorded his burial said that Joseph was 47 years old when he died.

During the War Between the States, Andéol, called Andriol in Confederate records, may have served in Company A of the 29th (Thomas's) Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in St. Landry Parish, that fought at Vicksburg, Mississippi.  Andéol married Azéma, daughter of German Creole Louis Taylor, formerly Teller, at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in December 1863.  Andéol remarried to Alida, daughter of Jean Miller, in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in May 1866, and sanctified the marriage at the Grand Coteau church in June; Alida's mother was a Boudreaux.

Saturin or Saturnin, by his first wife, born either in Acadia or Maryland in c1755, stood as godfather to his half-brother Hubert in April 1773 and was counted with his parents at Attakapas in May 1777, age 22, so he survived childhood, but he probably did not marry. 

3

Hubert, by his second wife, born at Attakapas in April 1773, married Anne-Euphrosine, called Euphrosine and Euphosie, daughter of French Creole Jean Legros of False River, Pointe Coupée, and Opelousas, at Attakapas in February 1800.  Their son Hubert-Euphroi dit Godefroi, also called Leufroi, was born at Attakapas in July 1802, a son, name unrecorded, died at his parents' home at Île-aux-Cannes, near Fausse Pointe, 7 days after his birth in September 1806, Eusèbe was born at La Petite Anse, southwest of Fausse Pointe, in January 1810, Émilien at Fausse Pointe in January 1812, Édouard Valsin in July 1816, Victor Treville in November 1820, and Jean Beauville, called Beauville and Bouville, in September 1823.  They also had an older son named Bélisaire.  Their daughters married into the Derouen, LeBlanc, and Leleux families.  Hubert died "at his home at la fausse pointe" in July 1824; the priest who recorded his burial said that Hubert died at age "about 53 years," but he was only 51; his succession record was filed at the St. Martinville courthouse, St. Martin Parish, in March 1830.  Four of his sons married LeBlancs, three of them sisters, and two married Héberts who were sisters.  All of his married sons settled on the lower Teche, most of them near New Iberia but one as far down as St. Mary Parish.  A granddaughter and at least two grandsons settled in St. Landry Parish.

Godefroi, fils married cousin Marguerite Eugénie or Virginie, also called Éloise, daughter of François Landry, at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in July 1849.  Their son Hubert was born near Grand Coteau in June 1852, and Léopold in February 1858.  Their daughters married into the Broussard and Gary families, one at New Iberia.  Godefroi, fil's succession record may have been filed at the Opelousas courthouse, St. Landry Parish, in May 1860; he would have been 32 years old that year.

3b

Bélisaire married Logie Arthémise, called Arthémise, daughter of fellow Acadian Théophile LeBlanc, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in March 1829.  They settled near New Iberia.  Their son Paul Bélisaire was born in April 1831 but died at age 9 months in February 1832, Hubert le jeune was born in October 1833, Agricole in March 1836, Bélisaire, fils in March 1838, Jacques in May 1842, Alexandre in December 1844, Alexis in November 1846, and Charles Ernest in April 1849.  Their daughter married into the Leleux family.  They also had a son named Luc or Lucquet.

Siméon Ovide was working as a clerk perhaps in New Iberia during the summer of 1861 when he enlisted in Company C of the 8th Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in St. Martin Parish, which fought in Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania; he was only 17 years old.  According to Confederate records, Siméon had a fair complexion, light hair, blue eyes, and stood 6 feet, 7 inches tall!  The gangly youth was captured four times in Virginia during his service as one of General R. E. Lee's Louisiana Tigers--at Fredericksburg in May 1863; Rappahannock Station the following November; Strasburg in September 1864; and High Bridge in April 1865.  Needless to say, he spent a lot of time in Federal prisoner-of-war facilities--at Old Capitol Prison, D.C.; Fort Delaware, Delaware; and Point Lookout, Maryland.  In June 1865, exactly four years after his enlistment, he was released from the prison compound at Newport News, Virginia, after taking the oath of allegiance to the U.S. government.  Siméon returned to South Louisiana, married French Creole Olorine Ardoin, and settled on the Calcasieu prairies.  Their son Simeon, fils was born "in Lacassine," Calcasieu Parish, today's Jefferson Davis Parish, in June 1874.  Siméon died probably at Lacassine in c1904, age 59 or 60.

4a

Joseph Adolphe, by his first wife, married Arthémise, daughter of fellow Acadian Louis LeBlanc, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in November 1832.  They settled in St. Mary Parish.  Their son Joseph O., perhaps Oliffe, was born in February 1834.  Joseph Adolphe's succession record was filed at the Franklin courthouse in May 1836; he would have been 32 years old that year.

Youngest son Alexandre-Anselme, by his second wife, born at Attakapas in February 1782, married Susanne, daughter of Anglo Creole Benjamin Hargrave of Vermilion, in St. Martin Parish in December 1807.  Alexandre died "at 5:00 a.m. ... at his home" in Lafayette Parish in June 1826; he was only 44 years old; his succession record was filed at the Vermilionville courthouse in July.  He and his wife probably had no sons, at least none who appear in area church records, so his family line probably died with him. 

~

From the 1770s into the 1790s, other Landrys who had come to Louisiana from Maryland left the river, settled on the western prairies, and added substantially to the western branch of the family:

Isabelle Landry, a widow, died at Attakapas in December 1787.  The priest who recorded her burial, and who did not bother to give her parents' names or even her dead husband's name, said that she was 53 years old when she died. 

Isabelle Landry, widow of Mathurin Richard, died in St. Landry Parish in April 1813, in her late 70s. 

Anne Landry, widow of Augustin Broussard, died at her son's home on the Vermilion in September 1814, in her early 70s. 

Pélagie Landry, widow of François Broussard dit Beausoleil, died in Lafayette Parish in December 1831, in her early 80s.  Her succession record was filed at the Vermilionville courthouse in January and lists her many heirs. 

Descendants of Basile LANDRY (c1727-1788; René le jeune, Antoine)

Basile, second son of Pierre Landry and Marguerite Forest, born at Ste.-Famille, Pigiguit, in May 1727, married Brigitte, daughter of Pierre Boudrot, in c1753.  The British deported them to Maryland in 1755.  Colonial officials counted them at Upper Marlborough in July 1763.  They came to Louisiana in 1768 with the party led by the Breau brothers of Pigiguit and were forced to settle at San Luìs de Natchez on the river.  After the Spanish released them from Natchez, they moved to the Attakapas District.  Their daughter married into the Roger dit Brisbois (French Canadian, not Acadian) family.  Basile remarried to Anne-Euphrosine, also called Françoise, daughter of fellow Acadian Michel Vincent and widow of Michel Trahan, at Attakapas in May 1786.  Basile died at Attakapas in March 1788; he was 60 years old.   He may have fathered no sons by either of his wives, at least none who appear in local church records, so this family line, except for its blood, probably died with him. 

Descendants of Amand-Pierre LANDRY (c1746-1793; René le jeune, Abraham)

Amand-Pierre, son of Charles Landry and Marie LeBlanc, born probably at Pigiguit in c1746, was deported with his family to Maryland in 1755.  Colonial officials counted him and his siblings at Oxford, on Maryland's Eastern Shore, in July 1763.  He followed them to Louisiana in 1766 and settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, where he married Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Melançon, in c1768.  Spanish officials counted them on the right, or west, bank of the river at Cabanocé in 1769 and on the same side of the river at nearby Ascension in 1770.  Probably following his sister Pélagie, who married a son of Joseph Broussard dit Beausoleil, they moved to the Attakapas District in the 1770s and settled at Côte Gelée.  In 1785, Amand and Marguerite owned a single slave.  Their daughters married into the Broussard and Granger families.  Amand remarried to cousin Élisabeth- or Isabelle-Augustine, daughter of Jean-Baptiste Landry and widow of Joseph Dugas, at Attakapas in August 1789.  Élisabeth was born in France and had come to Louisiana aboard La Bergère, one of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  Their daughter married into the Melançon family.  A tutor was appointed for Amand's children in May 1793.  Amand died at Attakapas in November 1793; the priest who recorded his burial said that Amand was 55 years old when he died, but he was closer to 47.  Judging from the time between appointment of tutorship for his children and Amand's death, perhaps he had been ill for months.

Oldest son Joseph-Vital, called Vital, from his first wife, baptized at Ascension, age unrecorded, in December 1770, married Pélagie, daughter of fellow Acadian Simon Mire of Côte Gelée, at Attakapas in December 1797; Pélagie also had been born on the river.  Their son, name unrecorded, died probably at Côte Gelée, age 15 days, in June 1802.  Their daughters married into the Bodin, Leleux, and Louviere families.  Vital died at his home at Côte Gelée in January 1805; he was only 34 years old; his succession record was filed at the St. Martinville courthouse, St. Martin Parish, in September 1808.  He and his wife had no sons, at least none who appear in local church records, so his line of the family, except for its blood, probably died with him. 

2

Pierre, by his first wife, baptized at Opelousas, age 7 months, in April 1780, may have died young. 

3

Jean-Marcel, by his first wife, born at Attakapas in September 1781, married Ursule, also called Cécile, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean-Baptiste Doiron of La Pointe, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in January 1808.  Jean died in Lafayette Parish in July 1835; he was only 53 years old; his succession record was filed at the Vermilionville courthouse in April 1839.  He and his wife may have been that rare Acadian couple who had no children. 

4

Youngest son Pierre, the second of that name, by his first wife, born at Attakapas in April 1784, married cousin Françoise, daughter of Olivier Landry of Côte Gelée, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in June 1813.  Their son Basile was born at Côte Gelée in April 1816, Eugène in May 1819, and Amand Trasimond was baptized at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, age 2 months, in December 1829.  They also had a son named Pierre, fils.  Their daughters married into the Broussard, Comeaux, Granger, LeBlanc, Richard, and Sonnier families. 

4a

Pierre, fils married Marie Azélie, called Azélie, daughter of fellow Acadian Édouard Comeaux, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in December 1841 (the printed marriage record states that "This entry was scratched," but for what reason it does not say; nonetheless, the couple married).  They settled near Youngsville.  Their son Aristide Alexis was born in February 1847, and François in October 1855.  Their daughters married into the Guidry, Hulot, and Landry families.  Pierre's succession record was filed at the Vermilionville courthouse in January 1866. 

Aristide married Émelia Fabre, widow of Edgar Sonnier, at the Youngsville church, Lafayette Parish, in February 1870.

Descendants of Basile LANDRY (c1750-1811; René le jeune, Claude, Claude, fils)

Basile, son Vincent Landry and Marguerite Boudrot, born probably at Grand-Pré in c1750, was deported with his family to Maryland in 1755.  He to Louisiana in 1766, evidently on his own, and settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, where Spanish officials counted him with a brother-in-law's family on the left, or east, bank of the river in 1769 and on the same side of the river at nearby Ascension in 1770.  He married Marie-Anastasie, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Richard, at St.-Jacques in November 1776.  Spanish officials counted them on the right, or west, bank of the river at Ascension in 1777.  They moved to the Attakapas District in the late 1770s or early 1780s and settled at Côte Gelée and along the Vermilion.  Their daughter Madeleine was a deaf-mute who died at age 38 in September 1822; she never married.  Basile remarried to Marie-Anne, daughter of fellow Acadian Simon Mire of Côte Gelée, at Attakapas in October 1786.  Daughter Eléonore, called Léonore, gave birth to son Jean in June 1804, three years before she married into the Breaux family; she later married a Matherne.  Basile and Marie-Anne's other daughters married into the Broussard, Frederick, Hébert, Taylor, Trahan, and Vincent families.  Basile died "at the home of Jean Baptiste Broussard at Côte Gelée" in November 1811; the priest who recorded his burial said that Basile was 56 years old when he died, but he was closer to 61.  One wonders why he did not die at his own home.  His succession record was filed at the St. Martinville courthouse, St. Martin Parish, in December 1811. 

1

Oldest son Raphaël, by his first wife, born either at Ascension or Attakapas in c1779, died at Attakapas, age 4, in January 1783.

Martel married Marie Rosela or Rosalie, perhaps also called Ozea, daughter of Spanish Creole Gabriel Viator, at the New Iberia church, then in St. Martin but now in Iberia Parish, in February 1850; Martel's sister Marie Celima married Marie's brother Ozémé.  Martel and Marie Rosela's son Martel, fils was born near New Iberia in June 1860, and Gabriel in July 1868.  Their daughter married into the Rajeur family.

1

Oldest son Léandre, baptized at Opelousas, age unrecorded, in July 1790, married Lise or Louise, daughter of fellow Acadian Blaise Brasseaux, at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, in June 1811.  Their son Arsène was born in St. Landry Parish in July 1812, Léandre, fils in April 1814, Aloyse was "born at sea" in August 1815 and baptized at Opelousas the following November, Joseph was born in St. Landry Parish in February 1822, Arville in January 1824, Joseph Philemon in December 1828, and Éloi Aladin in October 1830.  Their daughters married into the Benoit, Bourque, Brasseaux, and Prewett families.

~

A Landry who came to Louisiana from France in 1785 chose to go to the western prairies:

Jean-Baptiste Landry of Grand-Pré, age 61, second wife Élisabeth, or Isabelle, Dugas, age 44, and four of their children--Élisabeth-Augustine, age 25, Jean-Baptiste, fils, age 23, Marguerite-Geneviève, age 20, and Marie-Anne, age 9--crossed on La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in August.  They did not follow the majority of their fellow passengers to upper Bayou Lafourche but went directly to the Attakapas District to join his cousins and his wife's family already there.  They had no more children in Louisiana.  Jean-Baptiste, père died at Attakapas in October 1787; the priest who recorded his burial said that Jean-Baptiste was 60 years old when he died, but he was 62.  The succession record of daughter Élisabeth Augustine, widow of Joseph Dugas and Amand Landry and wife of Jean Baptiste Broussard, père, was filed at the Vermilionville courthouse, Lafayette Parish, in May 1823; she would have been in her early 60s that year.  Daughter Marguerite Geneviève, widow of Joseph Granger, died in Lafayette Parish in January 1831; she was 66 years old.  Daughter Marie Anne, wife of Joseph Girouard, died in Lafayette Parish in October 1835; the priest who recorded her burial said that she was 50 years old when she died, but she was 60.  Jean-Baptiste's son settled at Attakapas and died young, but not before fathering a son of his own, who also probably died young.  This line of the family, then, except for its blood, may not have survived in the Bayou State. 

Descendants of Jean-Baptiste LANDRY, fils (1762-1787; René le jeune, Antoine, Antoine, fils)

Jean-Baptiste, fils, called Baptiste, son of Jean-Baptiste Landry and his second wife Élisabeth Dugas, born at Plouër, France, near St.-Malo, in January 1762, came to Louisiana with his family aboard La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  He followed them to the Attakapas District, where he may have married fellow Acadian Marie Breaux in the late 1780s.  Their daughter may have married into the Roman family and settled on the river.  Baptiste died at Attakapas in December 1787; he was only 25 years old.  His family line may not have survived. 

Augustin, born posthumously at Attakapas in February 1788, may have died young. 

~

A Landry from France who had settled on the river moved on to the Attakapas District during the late colonial period:

Descendants of Joseph-Marie LANDRY (1778-1852; René le jeune?)

Joseph-Marie, third and youngest son of René Landry and Marguerite Babin, born at St.-Servan, France, near St.-Malo, in April 1778, came to Louisiana with his family aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  They settled at the new Acadian community of Bayou des Écores, north of Baton Rouge.  However, Joseph did not remain on the river.  He moved to the Attakapas District and married Modeste-Arthémise, called Arthémise, daughter of French Creole Pierre-Marin Lenormand of New Orleans, at Attakapas in July 1801; the priest who recorded his marriage said that Joseph had lived at Attakapas "for many years."  In the 1810s, they lived "around the Church" at St. Martinville.  Their daughter married into the Gauthier (Foreign French, not French Creole) family.  Joseph-Marie died in St. Martin Parish in October 1852; the St. Martinville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Joseph died "at age 75 yrs."; he was 74; his succession record was filed at the St. Martinville courthouse in November.  His three sons married sisters who also were their cousins. 

1

Oldest son Charles, born on Bayou Teche in September 1805, married cousin Adélaïde Léontine or Léontine Adélaïde, daughter of French Creole Joseph Marin Lenormand, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in January 1827.  Their son Charles, fils was born in St. Martin Parish in May 1828 but died at age 2 1/2 in January 1831, Joseph Dorcili was born in February 1831, and Pierre in December 1841.

Joseph Dorcili married Marie Clelie, daughter of fellow Acadian Philemon Broussard, at the New Iberia church, Iberia Parish, in December 1869; Joseph Dorcili was 38 years old at the time of the wedding, so one wonders if this was his first marriage. 

2

Joseph Darcourt, called Darcourt, born on Bayou Teche in October 1808, married cousin Marie Louise Euchariste, called Euchariste, another daughter of Joseph Marin Lenormand, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in May 1829.  Their son Alexandre Darcourt was born in St. Martin Parish in November 1834, Césaire in December 1836, Pierre Numa, called Numa, in November 1841, Amédée in January 1847, and Alexandre Ismond in June 1852.  Their daughter married into the Berry family.

More Landrys, descendants of immigrants from Maryland, moved from the river to the western prairies during the early antebellum period:

Descendants of Valentin LANDRY (1771-1823; René le jeune, Abraham)

Valentin, second son of René Landry and his second wife Anne Landry, and half-brother of Olivier and Joseph dit Dios, baptized at St.-Jacques on the river, age unrecorded, in January 1771, married Célestine or Céleste, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Bourgeois, at St.-Jacques in November 1792.  In the 1810s, they moved to La Grand Pointe on upper Bayou Teche.  Their daughters married into the Begnaud, Bourgeois, Breaux, Sonnier, and Thibodeaux families.  Valentin remarried to Céleste, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Dupuis and widow of Jean Charles Guilbeau, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in April 1823; he was 52 years old at the time of the wedding.  Valentin, père died "in the morning ... at his home on Bayou Teche" in September 1823; the priest who recorded his burial said that Valentin was "age about 56 yrs." when he died, but he was closer to 52; his succession record was filed at the St. Martinville Parish courthouse 10 days after his death. 

1

Oldest son Valentin, fils, by his first wife, born at St.-Jacques in January 1786, died "at the home of Éstienne Bourgeois at la pointe" in April 1824.  The priest who recorded Valentin, fils's burial said that he was "age about 30 years" when he died, but he was 38.  He probably did not marry. 

2

Descendants of Éloi LANDRY (1779-1843; René le jeune, Abraham, Abraham dit Petit Abram)

Éloi, elder son of Étienne Landry and Brigitte Trahan, born at Ascension on the river in August 1779, married cousin Julienne, daughter of fellow Acadian Paul Trahan, probably at Ascension in the late 1790s or early 1800s.  They settled at Grand Pointe on upper Bayou Teche and on the lower Vermilion.  Their daughters married into the Benoit, Bourgeois, Campbell, Dubois (French Creole, not Acadian), Guidry, and Maillard families.  Éloi's first succession record was filed at the Vermilionville courthouse, Lafayette Parish, in May 1831; the record says he was a widower and listed three of his daughters as his heirs.   Éloi died in November 1843; the priest who recorded his burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Éloy, as he called him, died "at age 66 yrs.," but he was "only" 64; the priest also noted that Éloi was "buried at Perry's Bridge near Abbeville, La."; Éloi's postmortem succession record was filed at Vermilionville courthouse in January 1844; the parish clerk who recorded the succession noted that Éloi was "Grandfather to Lusiphore and Telesphore Landry, the children of Antoine Landry and Clémence Guidry," so this was him.  Only one of his four sons, Antoine, created a family of his own. 

1

Oldest son Antoine, born probably at Grand Pointe in September 1803, married Virginie Clementine or Clémence, called Clementine, daughter of fellow Acadian François Guidry, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in January 1828.  Their son Lusiphor or Onésiphore was baptized at the Vermilionville church, age 3 months, in April 1830, and Telesphore at age 3 months in April 1832.  Antoine died in Lafayette Parish in November 1833; he was only 30 years old; his succession record was filed at the Vermilionville courthouse that December. 

1a

Onésiphore married cousin Felicienne, also called Félicia, daughter of French Creole Joseph Dejean, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in May 1851; Felicienne's mother was a Guidry.  They settled on the lower Vermilion River.  Their son Joseph Antoine had been born in February 1851, Onésiphore Albert in October 1853, and a child, name and age unrecorded, perhaps a son, died in either June or July 1854. 

1b

Telesphore likely married fellow Acadian Louisa Hébert and settled near Abbeville, Vermilion Parish, by the early 1850s.  Their son Antoine Dermily was born near Abbeville in February 1857, and Onésiphore le jeune in January 1867.

2

Éloi, fils, born at Grand Pointe in December 1810, died at his father's home on the lower Vermilion in August 1824.  He was only 14 years old. 

3

Jean, born at Vermilion in June 1817, died in Lafayette Parish in August 1831.  He, too, was only 14 years old when he died. 

4

A youngest son, name unrecorded, died at Vermilion in December 1818, 8 days after his birth. 

Descendants of Éloi LANDRY, fils (1808-?; René le jeune, Abraham, René, Marin)

Éloi, fils, also called Éloi Marin, elder son of Éloi Landry and Marie-Madeleine Melançon, born near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in January 1808, married cousin Madeleine Mathilde, called Mathilde, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Theriot, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in February 1829; Mathilde's mother was a Landry; they had to secure a dispensation for fourth degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Éloi, fils remarried to cousin Marie Bathilde, Bertille, or Bertisse, daughter of Alexandre Landry, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in May 1835.  They remained in Lafayette Parish.  Their daughters married into the Guidry and Sonnier families.  Except for its blood, did this family line survive? 

~

During the late antebellum period, Landrys from upper Bayou Lafourche moved west of the Atchafalaya Basin and settled on the St. Landry prairies and on lower Bayou Teche: 

Descendants of Emérante Gilbert LANDRY (1819-; René le jeune, Abraham, Abraham dit Petit Abram, Pierre-Abraham dit Pitre)

Emérante Gilbert, third son of Pierre Grégoire dit Landry Landry and Marie-Joséphine Rousseau, born in Assumption Parish in January 1819, married Adélaïde, daughter of French Canadian Valéry Roy, at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, in May 1847.  Their daughter married into the Nezat family.  The rest of Emérante's family remained on upper Bayou Lafourche, so one wonders what brought him to the Opelousas prairies. 

1

Oldest son Ambroise was born in St. Landry Parish in January 1850.

2

Henry Emérante was born in St. Landry Parish in July 1852. 

3

1

Older son Telesphore, fils, by his first wife, was born near Charenton, St. Mary Parish, in January 1845. 

2

Joseph Desilva, by his first wife, was born near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, in May 1854.

Other LANDRYs on the Western Prairies

Area church and civil records make it difficult to link many Landrys in the western parishes with known Acadian lines of the family there.  The priests at Abbeville, St. Martinville, and Vermilionville, during the late antebellum and immediate post-war periods were especially negligent in their recordkeeping.  One suspects that some of the Landrys who lived on the western prairies during the post-war period were Afro Creoles once owned by Acadian and Creole Landrys:

Anne Landry died at Attakapas in June 1787.  The priest who recorded her burial said that she was 25 years old when she died, but he did not bother to give her parents' names or mention a husband. 

Dominique Landry died "at age about 50 years at the home of Joseph Castille [fils, not père] at la pointe on Bayou Teche" in March 1824.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Dominique was "native of Acadie," though his estimated birth year of c1774 says otherwise.  Joseph Castille, fils's mother was a Landry, so Dominique probably was a kinsman of these Spanish Creoles. 

Uriah Landry's succession record was filed at the Franklin courthouse, St. Mary Parish, in February 1831.  The parish clerk who recorded the succession did not give Uriah's parents' names or mention a wife. 

Marie Mélanie, called Mélanie, daughter of Alexandre Landry of St. Gabriel on the river and widow of Jean Baptiste Hébert, remarried to French Creole Alexandre Lanclos probably in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in 1831. 

Julie Landry married François LeForet, probably Foret, a fellow Acadian, and died in Lafayette Parish in May 1833, age 30.  The Vermilionville priest who recorded her burial did not give her parents' names. 

Onésime, also called Édouard, Landry married French Canadian Azélie Marie or Marie Azélie Lavergne at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in October 1839.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not bother to give any parents' names.  Their son Julien was born near Grand Coteau in January 1847, Philemon in March 1850, and Onésime in February 1853.  Their daughters married into the Pitre and Wantress families. 

Joseph Landry's succession record was filed at the Vermilionville courthouse, Lafayette Parish, in January 1842.  Which of the many Joseph Landrys was this? 

Joseph Landry married Aimée La Porte.  Their son Clem was born in St. Martin Parish in December 1842. 

Olivier Noël Landry died in St. Martin Parish in January 1846.  The St. Martinville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or mention a wife, died "at age 23 yrs."  Who were Olivier's parents?  Was he Acadian?

Lucien Landry died in St. Martin Parish in November 1848.  He was only 4 years old.  The St. Martinville priest who recorded the burial did not bother to give any parents' names. 

Another Lucien Landry died in St. Martin Parish, in November 1849.  He was only 6 years old.  Again, the St. Martinville priest who recorded the burial did not give any parents' names. 

Dorse Landry died in St. Martin Parish in December 1852.  The St. Martinville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names, said that Dorse died "at age 12 yrs."  A succession record for Dorsy Landry was filed at the St. Martinville courthouse, St. Martin Parish, the following July.  Was Dorsy the same as Dorse?  If so, why would a 12-year-old need a succession record? 

Émelie Landry married Onésime, daughter of fellow Acadian Charles Babineaux, in a civil ceremony in Lafayette Parish in September 1850, and sanctified the marriage at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in December 1851.  The parish clerk and the priest who recorded the marriage did not bother to give the bride's parents' names. 

Adolphe Landry married Marie Nathalie Mayard or Maillard, widow of John Clark, in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in Auguste 1852.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  They were living near Abbeville, Vermilion Parish, a few years later.  Their son Alexandre was born near Grand Coteau, St. Landry Parish, in January 1862.  Adolphe's succession record may have been filed at the Opelousas courthouse, St. Landry Parish, in September 1866.

Villery, also called Villiot and Vilcor, Landry married Rosalie, also called Eulalie, Boudreaux at the Pattersonville church, St. Mary Parish, in April 1857.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not bother to give the couple's parents' names.  Their son Henry was born near Pattersonville in August 1860. 

Nathalie Landry married Acadian Sosthène Vincent at the Abbeville church, Vermilion Parish, in December 1857.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not bother to give the couple's parents' names.

Mrs. Frédéric Landry died near Charenton, St. Mary Parish, in October 1862.  The priest who recorded the burial said that she died "at age 80 yrs."  One wonders who her husband may have been.

Édouard Landry died "at Opel." St. Landry Parish, in February 1864.  The Opelousas priest who recorded the burial did not bother to give any parents' names, mention a wife, or even give Édouard's age at the time of his death.  One wonders if his death was war-related.

LOUISIANA:  LAFOURCHE VALLEY SETTLEMENTS

Most of the Landrys who came to Louisiana from France in 1785 chose to go to upper Bayou Lafourche:

Claire Landry of Grand-Pré, age 80, perhaps the most elderly Acadian exile who made it to Louisiana, crossed on La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in mid-August.  With her were in-laws Claude LeBlanc of Grand-Pré, age 62, and his third wife Dorothée Richard, age 50. 

Prosper Landry, age 60, crossed on La Bergère with third wife Élisabeth, or Isabelle, Pitre, age 57, and two sons--Jean-Pierre, age 22, and Simon-Joseph, age 19.  Prosper died at Assumption in October 1797, two days before his wife Élisabeth died there.  Prosper was 71 years old when he died, two years older than Élisabeth.   Their sons settled on the upper bayou. 

Pierre Landry, age 49, crossed on La Bergère with wife Marthe LeBlanc, age 49, and four children--Joseph-Giroire, age 19, Jean-Raphaël, age 17, Marie-Madeleine-Adélaïde, age 15, and Anne-Susanne, age 9.  Their daughters married into the Hébert and Penro families.  Pierre died at Assumption in September 1798; he was 63 years old.  Born at Minas in the 1730s when Acadia thrived under British rule, as a young man he endured exile to Virginia, deportation to England, seven years of imprisonment in an English port, and repatriation to France as a young husband.  He spent over 20 years in France, raising a family, working as a colorist, carpenter, and ploughman, and enduring the frustrations of a stranger living in his own mother country.  In his twilight years, however, in Spanish Louisiana, Pierre, like hundreds of his fellow Acadians, finally found peace and tranquility along the banks of Bayou Lafourche.  His sons also remained on the upper bayou.  Daughter Marie Madeleine Adélaïde died in Assumption Parish in April 1853, age 82, one of the last of the Acadian immigrants to Louisiana to join our ancestors. 

Marguerite Landry, age 48, crossed on La Bergère with husband Jean Richard, age 55, and a 13-year-old son. 

Marie-Josèphe Richard, age 46, widow of Hilaire Landry, crossed on La Bergère with two daughters--Marie-Madeleine, age 16, and Marie-Rose, age 10--who married into the Savoie and Thériot families. 

Marguerite Landry, age 43, crossed on La Bergère with husband Jean-Baptized Ozelet of Cobeguit, age 42, and four children, ages 18 to 4. 

Geneviève Landry, age 34, crossed on La Bergère with sister Marie-Josèphe, age 32, and a 3-year-old charge, François-Julien ____.   Marie-Josèphe may not have married.  Geneviève married Francisco, son of Joseph Romagosa of Catalina, Spain, on the upper bayou, in November 1794, and died a widow at Charity Hospital, New Orleans, in September 1796; the New Orleans priest who recorded her burial said that Geneviève was 55 years old when she died, but she was closer to 45.  The surname and fate of their young charge François-Julien is anyone's guess. 

Marie-Madeleine-Adélaïde Landry, age 22, wife of Jean-Baptiste Comeau, who remained in France, crossed on La Bergère with a two-year-old son.  Marie-Madeleine-Adélaïde remarried twice, first to Jean-Baptiste, son of French Creole Eustache Mondort and widower of Marie Drolet of Québec, in August 1798, and then to Juan, son of Josef Antonio Moreno of Guadalajara, Mexico, in February 1803. 

.

Simon Landry, age 50, crossed on Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in early September.  With him was wife Marguerite Gautrot, age 59.  Needless to say, they had no more children in the colony.  One wonders if they even survived the crossing from France. 

Jeanne-Marguerite, called Marguerite, Landry, age 20, crossed on Le St.-Rémi with three younger siblings--Aimable-Étienne, age 19, Bonne-Marie-Louise, age 17, and Abraham-Isaac, age 13.   Jeanne-Marguerite married into the Cancienne family and died in Assumption Parish in March 1825, age 60.  Bonne-Marie-Louise married into the Marois family of Italy.   Aimable and Abraham settled on the upper bayou. 

.

François Landry of Port-Royal, age 69, three times a widower, crossed on L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in early November.  With him were two orphaned grandchildren and a nephew--Jean-Charles Landry, age 18, granddaughter Bonne-Marie-Adélaïde Landry, age 16, and grandson Jean-Jacques-Frédéric Landry, age 15.  François died at Lafourche in February 1797, age 81.  Bonne-Marie-Adélaïde married into the Lejeune family.   Jean-Charles settled on the bayou.  Jean-Jacques may not have married. 

Marie-Blanche, called Blanche, Landry, age 52, crossed on L'Amitié with husband Pierre LeBlanc, age 49, and a 16-year-old daughter.  Blanche died at Lafourche in July 1786, not long after she reached Louisiana. 

Marguerite Landry, age 37, crossed on L'Amitié with husband Eustache Bertrand, age 49, and four children, ages 19 to 1. 

.

Marguerite Landry, age unrecorded, widow of Jacques Mius D'Entremont III, crossed on La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in early December.  With her were son Jacques Mius D'Entremont IV of Pobomcoup, age 29, his French wife Marie Herve of St.-Malo, age 30, and five of their children and stepchildren, ages 11 to infancy.  They went not to Bayou des Écores, north of Baton Rouge, with the majority of their fellow passengers but to upper Bayou Lafourche. 

.

The Landrys from France created a third center of family settlement on Bayou Lafourche: 

Descendants of Jean-Pierre LANDRY (1762-1810; René le jeune, Claude, Jean-Baptiste)

Jean-Pierre, elder son of Prosper Landry and his third wife Élisabeth Pitre, born at St.-Antoine, France, near St.-Malo, in July 1762, became a carpenter in France.  He crossed to Louisiana aboard La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships, with his family in 1785 and followed them to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he married Élisabeth, or Isabelle, daughter of fellow Acadian Dominique Guérin, in February 1786.  Isabelle also had come to Louisiana aboard La Bergère, so they may have known one another in France.  Their daughter married into the Barrilleaux and Thibodeaux families.  Jean-Pierre remarried to Anne-Marie, called Annette, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean-Baptiste Daigle and widow, perhaps, of Simon LeBlanc, at Lafourche in January 1790.  Their daughters married into the Barrilleaux, Dovier, Guillot, Mendoza, and Simoneaux families.  Jean Pierre, père died in Assumption Parish in August 1810; he was only 48 years old.  His one son had many sons of his own and settled on the upper bayou.  One of Jean Pierre's daughters, however, settled on lower Bayou Teche. 

Jean-Pierre, fils, by his second wife, born at Lafourche in November 1790, married Henriette, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Blanchard, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in August 1812.  Their son Jean was born in Assumption Parish in April 1813, Henri Firmin in July 1815 but died at age 2 months the following September, Marcellin Florentin was born in July 1816, Ferdinand Théodule in November 1818, Pierre Victor in July 1821, and Rosémond Dormeville or Dorville in July 1825.  They also had a son named Landry, also called L. W. and Eleme. Their daughters married into the Harvey and Landry families.  Jean died by January 1840, when he was listed as deceased in a son's marriage record.  Most of his sons married and settled in Assumption Parish. 

Marcellin Florentin married Clementine, daughter of French Creole André Dupré, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in January 1840.  They had a son named J. B., probably Jean Baptiste, Maurice, called Maurice.  Marcellin died near Paincourtville in September 1847; the priest who recorded his burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Marcellin died at "age 30 yrs."; this Marcellin would have been 31, so this probably was him. 

Maurice married Veneda or Velleda, daughter of fellow Acadian Onésiphore Aucoin, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in February 1867.  Their son Gustave Morille was born near Paincourtville in March 1870. 

Landry married Azéline or Azéma, daughter of French Creole Lubin Simoneaux, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in November 1841; Azéline's mother was a Daigle.  Their son Sarasin Cyprien was born near Paincourtville in May 1847, Nicol in August 1852, and Cléobert in October 1854. 

Ferdinand Théodule likely married cousin Eglantine, perhaps also called Euphrosine, Landry.  Their son Omer was born near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, in September 1845, Joseph in January 1847, Lucien Ultimere in July 1849, and Octave Ulysse in September 1856.

Désiré Pierre married Cordilia, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Baptiste Dugas, at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in April 1868.  Their son Pierre Leufroi was born near Paincourtville in October 1870. 

Dormeville married cousin Alsina or Alexine, daughter of Jean Baptiste Landry, at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in May 1847.  Their son Gervetus or Gervey was born near Paincourtville in November 1849 but died at age 1 1/2 in July 1851, and Augustin Jean Baptiste was born in February 1853. 

Descendants of Simon-Joseph LANDRY (1765-1815; René le jeune, Claude, Jean-Baptiste)

Simon-Joseph, younger son of Prosper Landry and his third wife Élisabeth Pitre, born at Crehan, France, near St.-Malo, in November 1765, also became a carpenter in France.  He crossed with his family aboard La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and followed them to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he married Marie-Luce, daughter of fellow Acadian Marin Bourg at Assumption in July 1795.  Marie-Luce had come to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships.  Simon-Joseph, père died in Assumption Parish in December 1815, a widower; he was only 50 years old. 

Simon-Joseph, fils, called Simonet, born at Assumption in May 1798, likely married fellow Acadian Élisabeth or Élise Aucoin in Assumption Parish in the 1820s.  Their son Octave was born in Assumption Parish in December 1824, and Simon Ulysse in January 1830.  Their daughter married into the Badeaux family.  Simonet died in Assumption Parish in June 1833; he was only 35 years old. 

Descendants of Aimable-Étienne LANDRY (1765-1832; René l'aîné, Pierre, René)

Aimable-Étienne, elder son of Joseph Landry and his second wife Jeanne-Marie-Madeleine Varangue, born at Cherbourg, France, in December 1765, became an engraver in France.  He came to Louisiana with three younger siblings aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and settled with them on upper Bayou Lafourche.  (He and his younger brother Abraham-Isaac may have been the only direct male descendants of René Landry l'aîné who emigrated to Louisiana.)  Aimable married Ursule-Françoise, daughter of fellow Acadian François Pitre, in February 1788.  Ursule had come to Louisiana aboard L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships.  Their daughters married into the Barrilleaux, Colon, Foret, and Hunot families.  Aimable Étienne, called Étienne Aimable by the recording priest, died in Assumption Parish in July 1832; he was 66 years old. 

1

Oldest son Étienne-Joseph, born at Assumption in September 1792, married cousin Rosalie, daughter of Joseph Landry, perhaps in a civil ceremony, and sanctified the marriage at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in June 1813.  Their son Raphaël was born in Assumption Parish in September 1814 but died at age 1 in September 1815, Édouard Trasimond was born in June 1818, Cyprien died 10 days after his birth in September 1824, and Onésime Cleopha, called Cleopha, was born in December 1825.  Their daughters married into the Aucoin, Blanchard, Caillier, and Hill families.  Étienne died near Plattenville in November 1853; the priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Étienne died at "age 64 years"; Étienne Joseph would have been "only" 61.  Rosalie died near Plattenville in November 1853, less than a week after her husband passed; the priest who recorded her burial said that she died at "age 68 years."  Were Étienne and Rosalie victims of the yellow epidemic that struck South Louisiana during the summer and fall of 1853? 

Cleopha may have married fellow Acadian Azélie Boudreaux.  Their son Henry Éloy was born near Plattenville, Assumption Parish, in August 1852 but died at age 7 in July 1859.  Cleopha died in Assumption Parish in October 1853; the Plattenville priest who recorded the burial said that Cleopha died at "age 25 years, 9 months," but he was 27.  Was he a victim of the yellow epidemic that struck South Louisiana during the summer and fall of 1853?  Did his family line survive? 

2

Jean-Baptiste, born at Assumption in March 1799, married Ludivine, daughter of fellow Acadian Charles Foret, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in May 1820, and remarried to Euphrosine, Euphrasie, or Joséphine, called Frosine, daughter of fellow Acadian Blaise Boudreaux, at the Plattenville church in October 1827.  Their son Jean Baptiste, fils died in Assumption Parish 9 days after his birth in September 1828, Hermogène was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in October 1829 but died at age 14 in September 1843, another Jean Baptiste, fils was born in Assumption Parish in October 1833, and Joseph Léon, called Léon, in April 1837.  Their daughter married into the Thibodeaux family at New Iberia on lower Bayou Teche. 

Léon, by his second wife, married Nathalie, daughter of fellow Acadian Grégoire Aucoin, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in May 1858.  Their son Grégoire Telemaque Joseph was born near Labadieville in June 1859, and Omer Audressy in June 1861. 

3

Paul-Olivier or Olivier-Paul, born at Assumption in September 1795, died at age 8 in September 1803. 

4

François-Lucien, born at Assumption in October 1800, may have died young. 

5

Youngest son Élie, born at Assumption in December 1802, married Anne Rosalie, called Rosalie, another daughter of Blaise Boudreaux, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in November 1825.  They lived near the boundary between Assumption and Lafourche Interior parishes.  Their son Hermogène was born in April 1828, Eugène Basile, called Basile, in December 1829, and Jean Baptiste Villiers in February 1832 but died at age 4 1/2 in November 1836.  Their daughters married into the Bertrand (French Canadian, not Acadian), Braud, Lasseigne, Naquin, and Samson families.  Élie's married sons moved to lower Bayou Teche after the War Between the States. 

5a

Hermogène married Clara Cécile, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Olivier Gautreaux, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in January 1850 or 1851.  They settled near the boundary between Lafourche Interior and Assumption parishes before moving to lower Bayou Teche.  Their son Ernest Demetrius was born in November 1851, Joseph Villier in April 1856, Charles Arthur in October 1858, and Pierre Oscar near New Iberia, on lower Bayou Teche, in November 1869.

Descendants of Abraham-Isaac LANDRY (1772-1816; René l'aîné, Pierre, René)

Abraham-Isaac, called Isaac, younger son of Joseph Landry and his second wife Jeanne-Marie-Madeleine Varangue, born at Cherbourg, France, in February 1772, crossed with his family aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and followed them to upper Bayou Lafourche.  (He and his older brother Aimable-Étienne may have been the only direct male descendants of René Landry l'aîné who emigrated to Louisiana.)  Isaac married Anne-Olive, daughter of fellow Acadian Simon Aucoin, at Assumption in November 1795.  Anne-Olive had come to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships.  Isaac died in Assumption Parish in October 1816; he was only 44 years old.  His only son, perhaps his only child, died young, so this family line probably did not survive. 

Angèl died at Assumption a week after his birth in October 1796. 

Descendants of Joseph-Giroire LANDRY (1766-1849; René le jeune, René, fils, Pierre)

Joseph-Giroire, elder son of Pierre Landry, fils and Marthe LeBlanc, born at St.-Servan, France, near St.-Malo, in January 1766, became an engraver in France.  He followed his family to Louisiana aboard Le Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and settled with them on upper Bayou Lafourche, where he married Marie-Paule or -Anne, daughter of fellow Acadian Prosper-Honoré Giroir, in December 1788.  Marie-Paule also had come to Louisiana aboard La Bergère, so they may have known one another in France.  Their daughters married into the Charlet and Landry families.  Joseph remarried to Marie, daughter of French Creole Bernard Capdeville, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in May 1811; Marie's mother was a Clouâtre.  Their daughters married into the Capdeville, Dufrene, and Duhon families.  Joseph Giroire likely died in Assumption Parish in June 1849; the Plattenville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Joseph, "born in Nantes, France," died at "age 86 years," but this Joseph would have been "only" 83.  (Only three Joseph Landrys emigrated to Louisiana from France--Joseph-Giroire; Pierre-Joseph, called Joseph, born in January 1770 and died in Iberville Parish in March 1843; and Joseph-Marie, born in April 1778, who settled at Attakapas.  All three were born in the St.-Malo area, on the other side of Brittany from Nantes.)

1

Oldest son Joseph-Henri, called Henri, from his first wife, born at Lafourche in March 1791, married Jeanne Adélaïde, called Adélaïde, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Félix Boudreaux, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in November 1813.  Their son Gatino Joseph Ovid, called Joseph, was born in Assumption Parish in November 1813, a son, name unrecorded, died 8 days after his birth in May 1823, Henri Léovinski, Lovinski, or Lovency, called Lovency, was born in October 1826, and Octave Emare in July 1832.  Their daughters married into the Bourg and Foret families.  Henri remarried to cousin Coralie Mélanie Azélie, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Bourg, at the Plattenville church in September 1835; Coralie's mother was a Landry; Henri was 44 years old at the time of the wedding.  Their child, name unrecorded, perhaps a son, died in Assumption Parish at birth in June 1836.  His youngest son moved to the lower Atchafalaya after the War Between the States.

Lucien married Azéma, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Aucoin, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in July 1869. 

1b

1c

Octave Emare may have married fellow Acadian Angelina Giroir.  Their son Désiré Gustave was born near Plattenville, Assumption Parish, in November 1851.  Their son Louis Oscar was born near Plattenville in September 1853.  They were living near Brashear, now Morgan, City, St. Mary Parish, on the lower Atchafalaya. in 1866.  Octave remarried to Marie, daughter of fellow Acadian Ursin Delaune, at the Brashear City church in December 1868.

2a

Augustin, by his first wife, married cousin Gertrude Euphrosine, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Dupuis, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in May 1840; Gertrude's mother was a Landry.  Their son Eugène Augustin was born near Plattenville in February 1841, Siméon in February 1843, Charles in April 1845, and Caliste in September 1850.  Augustin's succession record was filed at the Franklin courthouse, St. Mary Parish, in June 1859; he would have been 48 years old that year.  One wonders when the family moved to lower Bayou Teche. 

Eugène Augustin married Marie Apolline Laforest at the Brashear, now Morgan, City church, St. Mary Parish, in April 1868. 

2b

Joseph Victor, by his first wife, married Roseline or Rosalie, daughter of fellow Acadian Louis Aucoin, at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in July 1847.  Their son Augustin le jeune was born near Plattenville in May 1851, and Joseph Arthur near Brashear, now Morgan City, St. Mary Parish, on the lower Atchafalaya, in April 1863.  Their daughter married into the Rodriguez family at New Iberia.

4

6

Jean Baptiste, by his second wife, born in Assumption Parish in June 1818, may have died young. 

7

Youngest son Ives, Yves, or Ive Jean Baptiste or Jean Baptiste Ives, also called Jose, born probably in Assumption Parish in the early 1820s, married Delphine Denise, daughter of French Creole Jean Charles Barbier, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in August 1844; Delphine's mother was an Aucoin.  Their son Camille Grégoire was born in Assumption Parish in November 1845 but died at age 9 in September 1855, Elphége Sosthène was born in August 1850 but died at age 5 in September 1855, Marcellin Achille was born in June 1852, Alexandre Aristide in August 1854 but died at age 1 in September 1855, and Jean Baptiste Arthur was born near Attakapas Canal, east of Lake Verret, in June 1858 but died the following October.  Meanwhile, Delphine died at age 37 in July 1858, probably from complications of giving birth to son Jean Baptiste Arthur.  Ives likely remarried to fellow Acadian Sidalise Bourg.  They settled at Attakapas Canal until after the War Between the States.  Their son Joseph Vincent was born near Attakapas Canal in January 1860, and Pierre Étienne in August 1862.  They were living near New Iberia, on lower Bayou Teche, in the late 1860s.

Youngest son Auguste Bernard, by his first wife, born at Assumption in October 1805, may have died young. 

Descendants of Jean-Charles LANDRY (1767-1844; René le jeune, Charles dit Charlot?, François?)

Jean-Charles, son of Eustache Landry and Marie Landry, born at Plouër, France, near St.-Malo, in May 1767, followed François Landry of Port-Royal, perhaps his grandfather, and some younger relatives to Louisiana aboard L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  He settled with them on upper Bayou Lafourche, where he married cousin Marguerite, daughter of François Landry, fils and widow of Joseph Savoie, in January 1793.  Marguerite's mother had come to Louisiana from Halifax in February 1765 with the Broussard dit Beausoleil party, and Marguerite's father had come to Louisiana from Maryland in 1766 as a teenager; Marguerite was born at St.-Jacques in c1771 soon after her parents married.  Their daughters married into the Comeaux, Hébert, and Landry families.  Jean Charles died in Assumption Parish in September 1844; the Plattenville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Jean died at "age 77 years," so this was him.  Marguerite died in Assumption Parish in January 1858, "age 87 years, 3 months"; the Paincourtville priest who recorded the burial called her "widow of Jean Landry," so she did not remarry. 

1

Older son Édouard-Benjamin, called Benjamin, born at Assumption in December 1793, married cousin Françoise Denise, called Denise, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Duhon, at the Donaldson church, Ascension Parish, in February 1816; Denise's mother was a Landry.  Their son Joseph was born in Assumption Parish in May 1818 but died at age 16 months in October 1819, Marcellin was born in October 1820 but died at age 5 1/2 in September 1826, Hippolyte Adon was born in December 1824, Joseph Sosthène, called Sosthène, in November 1830, Martin in April 1835, Désiré in March 1837, and Joseph Lima in June 1839.  Their daughters married into the LeBlanc, Savoy, and Vincent (Foreign French, not Acadian) families. 

1a

Hippolyte Adon likely married fellow Acadian Augustine, also called Marie Justine and Justine, Guidry in the early 1840s.  Their son Hippolyte Gédéon was born near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, in November 1844 but may have died at age 1 1/2 in October 1846, Jean Baptiste Théophile was born in June 1846 but died at age 1 in June 1847, Joseph Ernest, called Ernest, was born in December 1849, and Joseph Willfill in December 1852.  Their daughter married a Babin cousin.  Hippolyte Adon died near Paincourtville in September 1854; the priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Hippolyte died at "age 30 years"; Hippolyte Adon would have been only 2 months shy of that age. 

Ernest married Hélène or Helena, daughter of fellow Acadian Eusilien Theriot, at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in February 1868.  Their son Joseph Alfred was born near Paincourtville in August 1870. 

1b

Joseph Sosthène married first cousin Adeline Rosalie, daughter of fellow Acadian Henri Breaux, at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in May 1853; Adeline's mother was Sosthène's maternal aunt, Joséphine Duhon, so Sosthène and Adeline had to secure a dispensation for second degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son Joseph, fils, perhaps also called Meridier, was born near Paincourtville in November 1855 but may have died at age 3 1/2 in August 1859.  Joseph Sosthène may have been the Joseph Landry who died near Paincourtville in July 1856; the priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Joseph died at "age ca. 26 years," so this probably was him. 

1c

Martin married double cousin Elesile, daughter of Auguste Landry, at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in February 1858; Elesile's mother was a Landry, too.  Martin may have died near Paincourtville in October 1862; the priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Martin died at "age 33-34 years"; this Martin would have been only 27. 

2

Younger son Marcellin-Séverin, baptized at Assumption, age unrecorded, in January 1800, married cousin Delise, Felide, Feline, Phelie, Pheline, or Selide Marguerite, daughter of Armand Landry, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in September 1821.  Their son Firmin was born in Assumption Parish in October 1824, a son, name unrecorded, died a day after his birth in September 1826, Marcellus Porphiro was born in February 1828, a child, name unrecorded, perhaps a son, died at birth in October 1833, and another child, name unrecorded, perhaps a son, died at birth in March 1835.  Their daughter married into the Breaux and Gautreaux families.  Marcellin remarried to cousin Adélaïde Marine, daughter of fellow Acadian Étienne Dupuis and widow of Jean Baptiste Thomas Moïse, at the Plattenville church in July 1838; Adélaïde's mother was a Landry.  Their son Augustin Séverin, called Séverin and Séverin M., was born in Assumption Parish in August 1839, Maurice Lucien near Paincourtville in September 1844, Joseph Marcel, called Marcel, in July 1845, Martial Aristide in July 1847 but died at age 3 1/2 in May 1851, twins Joseph Théogène and Joseph Théophile were born in April 1852, Pierre Martial in June 1854, and Ernest Ubalde in May 1856.  Their daughters married Dugas cousins. 

2a

Firmin, by his first wife, likely married fellow Acadian Ethelvina, called Telvina, Hébert and settled near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, by the mid-1840s.  Their son Firmin Augustin was born near Paincourtville in December 1851, Joseph Ophild in December 1853, and Joseph Oleus, called Oleus, near Pierre Part, north of Lake Verret, in February 1862 but died at age 2 1/2 in September 1864.  Their daughters married into the Ozelet and Savoy families.  Firmin remarried to Augustine, daughter of fellow Acadian Léandre Hébert, at the Paincourtville church in October 1863.  Their son Augustin Alcée was born near Pierre Part in January 1865. 

2b

Marcellus, by his first wife, married Elmire or Elmina, daughter of fellow Acadian Marcellin LeBlanc, at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in February 1850.  Their son Jean, perhaps also called Joseph, was born near Paincourtville in August 1857 but may have died at age 8 in November 1865.  Marcellus remarried to Anatalie, daughter of fellow Acadian Isidore Rivet, at the Paincourtville church in July 1861.  Their son Augustin Liviston, perhaps Livingston, was born near Paincourtville in August 1862.  Marcellus died near Paincourtville in February 1865; the priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Marcellus died at "age 37 years," so this probably was him.  One wonders if his death was war-related. 

2c

Séverin, by his second wife, married cousin Adveline, daughter of Sarasin Marroy or Marrois, at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in May 1858; Adveline's mother was a LeBlanc; they had to secure a dispensation for third degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son Joseph Germain was born near Paincourtville in May 1859, Joseph Treville in December 1860, Joseph Julien in January 1865, and Joseph Vileor in January 1867 but died the following November. 

2d

Marcel, by his second wife, married Ellen, daughter of William Burke, at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in February 1868.  Their son Marcellin Richard was born near Paincourtville in November 1868 but died the following August. 

Jean-Jacques-Frédéric LANDRY (1770-; René le jeune, Charles dit Charlot, François)

Jean-Jacques-Frédéric, son of Germain Landry and Cécile La Garenne, born at Cherbourg, France, in July 1770, followed his grandfather, François Landry of Port-Royal, and some other relatives to Louisiana aboard L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  He followed them to upper Bayou Lafourche and was still a bachelor on the upper bayou in 1798.  One wonders if he married and created a family of his own. 

~

During the late colonial period, Landrys from Maryland moved from the Acadian Coast to upper Bayou Lafourche, adding substantially to that center of family settlement:

Anne-Isabelle Landry, wife of Joseph Comeaux and sister of Pierre dit LaVielliarde, died at Assumption in October 1797.  The priest who recorded her burial said that she was 34 years old when she died, but she probably was closer to 38. 

Descendants of Vincent LANDRY (c1727-1798; René le jeune, Antoine)

Vincent, son of Joseph Landry and his first wife Marguerite Forest, born probably at Minas in c1727, was deported with his family to Maryland in 1755.  He married fellow Susanne, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre-Joseph Godin dit Châtillon dit Préville and his first wife Marie-Josèphe Bourg of Minas, in Maryland in October 1765; Vincent's father's second wife was Susanne's mother, so Vincent married his step-sister.  They went to Louisiana with an infant son perhaps with the first contingent of exiles from Maryland in 1766.  They had more children in Louisiana.  Spanish officials counted them in New Orleans in July 1767, so they may have taken their time following their fellow exiles to Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, where Spanish officials counted them on the right, or west, bank of the river in 1769 and on the same side of the river at nearby Ascension in 1770 and 1777.  Vincent was "singer of the church" at Ascension.  Two of his daughters, born in December 1768 and July 1770, were baptized at New Orleans in May 1769 and February 1771, so the family spent some time in the city.  They were living on upper Bayou Lafourche by the mid-1790s.  Their daughters married into the Aucoin, Bourque, Mazerolle, Melançon, and Ozelet families.  Vincent died a widower at Assumption in March 1798; the priest who recorded his burial said that Vincent was 74 years old when he died.  Two of his three sons settled on the Lafourche. 

1

Oldest son Charles-Calixte, called Calixte, born in Maryland in c1766, died at Assumption in October 1798.  He was only 32 years old and may not have married. 

2

Grégoire, born probably at Ascension in c1772, married Françoise-Luce, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean-Baptiste Hébert, at Assumption in February 1797.  Françoise had come to Louisiana in 1785 with her widowed mother aboard La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships.  Their son Charles-Hubert, called Hubert, was born at Assumption in November 1797, Joseph-Damas in December 1800, Vincent le jeune in December 1802, Emery Jean or Jean Emery in October 1806 but died at age 6 in October 1812, Jean Baptiste Reynard, also called Jean St. Bernard and Jean Baptiste Bernard, was born in March 1812, and Grégoire, fils in April 1818.  Their daughters married into the Bolot, Cancienne, and Hébert families.  Grégoire died in Assumption Parish in January 1849; the Plattenville priest who recorded his burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Grégoire died at "age 78 years," so this was him.  Half of his six sons created families of their own and settled on the upper bayou. 

2a

Hubert married Euphrosine or Euphrasie, daughter of fellow Acadian Grégoire Aucoin, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in July 1827.  They lived near the boundary between Lafourche Interior and Assumption parishes.  Their son Simon André was born in September 1830, Jean Baptiste Marcellin in June 1839, Hubert, fils died a day after his birth in June 1842, and Joseph Hubert was born posthumously in March 1848.  Hubert, père died in Assumption Parish in February 1848; he was only 50 years old.

2d

Joseph Damas died in Assumption Parish in March 1845.  The Plattenville priest who recorded his burial, and who called him Joseph Damaze, said that he died at "age 40 years," but he was 44.  Did he ever marry?

3d

Victor, by his first wife, may have died in Lafourche Parish in June 1857.  The Thibodaux priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Victor died "at age 51 yrs."; this Victor would have been a month shy of 49.  Did he marry? 

Descendants of Pierre dit La Vielliarde LANDRY (c1732-1815; René le jeune, Abraham)

Pierre dit La Vielliarde, elder son of Pierre Landry and Anne-Marie Doucet, born probably at Pigiguit in c1732, married Anne-Élisabeth or -Isabelle Dupuis probably at Pigiguit.  The British deported them to Maryland in 1755.  Colonial officials counted them at Oxford, on Maryland's Eastern Short, in July 1763.  When Pierre dit La Vielliarde brought four of his children to Louisiana with the first contingent of exiles from Maryland in 1766, he was a widower.  His daughter by his first wife married into the Comeaux family.  He remarried to cousin Marie-Josèphe, daughter of Paul Landry, at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques in November 1767.  She gave him more children, including sons.  Spanish officials counted them on the right, or west, bank of the river at Cabanocé in 1769 and on the same side of the river at nearby Ascension in 1770 and 1777.  Their daughter Marie-Françoise, born in October 1768, was baptized at New Orleans in April 1769, so they spent some time in the city.  Pierre dit La Vielliarde owned three slaves at Ascension in 1777 and 11 in 1778, an impressive number for an Acadian at that time and place.  He, Marie-Josèphe, and their children were living on upper Bayou Lafourche by the late 1780s.  Pierre dit La Vielliarde held 15 slaves on the upper bayou in 1791, and owned 16 slaves there seven years later.  His daughters by his second wife married into the Breaux, Dupré, LeBlanc, and Zeringue families.  Pierre dit La Vielliarde died in Assumption Parish in June 1815; the Plattenville priest who recorded his burial said that "Pedro of Acadia," as he called him, died at "age 86 yrs."  His older sons remained on the river, but his younger sons and a grandson by his second son settled on upper Bayou Lafourche.  (This grandson, Baptiste dit Petit-René, is the great-great grandfather of Troy Landry of Pierre Part, Assumption Parish, an alligator hunter who stars in the History Channel's popular series, "Swamp People.")  Pierre dit La Vielliarde's second wife and widow, Marie-Josèphe, died in Assumption Parish in February 1836; the Plattenville priest who recorded her burial said that she was 83 years old when she died, but she was closer to 92. 

1

Oldest son Joseph, by his first wife, born in Maryland in c1756, may have married cousin Osite, daughter of François-Sébastien Landry.  Their son Joseph-Alexandre was born at Ascension in January 1789.  Did the family line survive?

(Baptiste dit Petit Renée and Euphroisine are alligator hunter Troy Landry's paternal great-great grandparents.  Euphrosine's paternal grandfather, Nicolas Marcoff, a German, and his family, including Euphrosine's father Jean, had come to Louisiana from Port Tobacco, Maryland, in 1769 aboard the ill-fated ship Britannia [several of the author's ancestors, both paternal and maternal, also were aboard that ship].  Euphrosine's mother's parents, who were Comeaus, had come to Louisiana from Maryland in 1768 with the Breau clan.  Euphrosine's maternal grandmother, Anne-Isabelle Landry, was a sister of Baptiste dit Petit Renée's grandfather, Pierre dit La Vielliarde.)  Baptiste dit Petit Renée and Euphroisine's son Paul Valsaeur or Valsin, called Valsin and also Vincent, was born in Assumption Parish in June 1825, Clément in February 1833, Joseph Auguste in May 1841, and Octave Onésime in 1844.  Their daughters married into the Aucoin, Blanchard, Giroir, and Simoneaux families.  Baptiste dit Petit René may have died near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, in May 1869; the priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Jean Baptiste, as he called him, died at "age 83 years"; Baptiste dit Petit René would have been "only" 80.  Two of his older sons married first cousins. 

Valéry, by his first wife, married first cousin Eméranthe, daughter of fellow Acadian Louis Blanchard, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in February 1836; Eméranthe's mother was Valéry's paternal aunt, Colette Landry, so they probably had to secure a dispensation for second degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son Landry was born posthumously in Assumption Parish in January 1838.  Valéry died in Assumption Parish in November 1837; he was only 24 years old. 

Landry married Estelle, daughter of German Creole Pierre Houfnag, Oufnaud, or Oufnac, at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in January 1862; Estelle's mother was a Theriot.  Their child, name unrecorded, perhaps a son, died near Paincourtville 2 days after its birth in October 1862.  Landry remarried to cousin Emma, daughter of fellow Acadian Gédéon Hébert, at the Paincourtville church in January 1867; Emma's mother was a Landry.  Their son Ulysse Cletus was born near Paincourtville in April 1870.

Joseph Auguste, by his second wife, married Marie, another daughter of Pierre Houfnag, at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in February 1862; Marie's mother was a Theriot.  Their son Joseph Émile was born near Paincourtville in December 1862, and Joseph Arish Anatole in December 1866.  During the War Between the States, Joseph Auguste, called J. A. in the Confederate records, may have served in Company H of the 2nd Regiment Louisiana Cavalry, raised in Assumption Parish, which fought in Louisiana.  Joseph Auguste remarried to Leora Angella, called Angela Léocade, 20-year-old daughter of Corsican Immigrant Jean Baptiste Melini or Meligni, at Napoleonville, Assumption Parish, in June 1886; Angela's mother was an Hébert; Joseph Auguste was 45 years old at the time of the wedding, old enough to have been his new bride's father.  They settled near Pierre Part, north of Lake Verret.  One of their sons, Edmond Joseph, was born at Pierre Part in December 1899.  Joseph Auguste died at Pierre Part in July 1919; he was 78 years old.

Joseph Augustin may have died near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, in September 1853; the priest who recorded the burial called the deceased's father Auguste, did not give the mother's name, and said that Gustave, as he called the deceased, died at "age 27 years"; Joseph Augustin would have been been 26 years old then.  Or he may have been the Joseph, son of Auguste Landry and Delphine Landry, who married Louise, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Baptiste Theriot and great-granddaughter of Olivier Terriot, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in August 1858.  Their son Joseph Samuel was born in Ascension Parish in September 1861, and Joseph Sabin near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, in October 1869.

Other LANDRYs in the Lafourche/Terrebonne Valley

Area church and civil records make it difficult to link many Landrys in the Bayou Lafourche valley with known lines of the family there.  The priests at Plattenville were especially negligent in their recordkeeping.  One suspects that some of the Landrys who lived in the Lafourche/Terrebonne valley during the post-war period were Afro Creoles once owned by Acadian Landrys:

Joseph Landry married fellow Acadian Marcellite Dugas and settled in Assumption Parish in the 1810s. 

Jean Landry died in Assumption Parish "by drowning in Bayou" in October 1830.  The Plattenville priest who recorded his burial, and who did not bother to give his parents' names or mention a wife, said that Jean died at "age ca. 40 yrs." 

Éloi Landry married fellow Acadian Mathilde Theriot and settled in Assumption Parish by the early 1830s.  Mathilde died before October 1833, when she was listed as deceased in a daughter's burial record. 

Eugène Landry died in Assumption Parish in April 1832.  The Plattenville priest who recorded his burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Eugène was "ca. 39 yrs." old when he died . 

Joseph dit Dio Vincent Landry, husband of Renée Trahan, died in Assumption Parish in January 1833.  The priest who recorded his burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names, said that Joseph dit Dio Vincent was 51 years old when he died. 

Joseph Narcisse Landry married Léonore Landry probably in Assumption Parish in the 1820s or early 1830s. 

Célestine Landry married Jean Baptiste Augeron at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in April 1843.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not bother to give the couple's parents' names. 

Théophile Landry married fellow Acadian Célestine Hébert.  Their son Élisée Désiré was born near Plattenville, Assumption Parish, in October 1841 but died at age 7 1/2 (the Plattenville priest said "age 2 years") in April 1849, Joseph Thomas was born in October 1855, Forester Bienvenu in October 1858, Jean Émile in January 1862, and Ernest Eugène in June 1865.  Their daughter married into the Blanchard family. 

Valérie Landry married cousin Hortense Landry.  Their son Eulise, perhaps Ulysse, was born near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, in September 1844. 

Germain Josèphe[sic] Landry died near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, in September 1844.  He was only 2 1/2 years old.  The priest who recorded the boy's burial did not bother to give the parents' names. 

Joseph Gesner Landry died near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, in October 1844.  He was only 8 1/2 years old.  The priest who recorded the boy's burial did not bother to give the parents' names. 

Sylvère, also called Sylvain, Landry married fellow Acadian Euphémie Melançon and settled near Plattenville, Assumption Parish, by the mid-1840s.  Was he the Silvère Landry who died near Plattenville, age 36, in October 1848? 

Jean Landry died in Assumption Parish in September 1844.  The Plattenville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Jean died at "age 77 years."  Who was he? 

Désiré, son of Michel Landry, died near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, age 2, in December 1847.  The priest who recorded the boy's burial did not give the mother's name. 

Elveigne Landry died near Plattenville, Assumption Parish, in July 1848.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names, said that Elveigne died at "age 18 years."  One wonders if the young man married. 

Louis, son of Glenkak Squire and Heline Landry, died in Lafourche Interior Parish in June 1850, age 12.  For some reason, the Thibodaux priest who recorded the burial called Louis a Landry

Auguste Landry married Scholastique Boudreaux in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Interior Parish in February 1852.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Joseph, son of Pierre Landry, died near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, in August 1852, only 6 days after his birth.  The priest who recorded the boy's burial did not bother to give the mother's name. 

Noise, probably Moïse, Landry married _____.  Their son Alcide Ferjus was born in Terrebonne Parish in June 1853. 

Pierre Landry died near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, in October 1853.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Pierre died at "age 28 years."  Did he marry? 

Jean Baptiste Landry, fils married Marie Octavie Daunois or Daunoy and settled near Labadieville, Assumption Parish, by the mid-1850s.  They were still living there in the early 1860s. 

Zéphirin, son of Ursin Landry, died near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, at age 8 months in January 1855.  The priest who recorded the boy's burial did not bother to give the mother's name, so one wonders which Ursin Landry was the father. 

Elvire Landry married French Creole Ernest Cantrelle in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Parish in March 1855.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Ozelia Landry married François Lee in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Parish in March 1855.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Homere, son of Ursin Landry, died near Labadieville, Assumption Parish, in July 1855.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give the mother's name, said that Homere died at "age ca. 13 years." 

Achille, son of Ives Landry, died near Plattenville, Assumption Parish, in September 1855.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give the boy's mother's name, said that Achille died at "age 3 years." 

Adrien Landry died near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, in September 1855.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names, said that Adrien died at "age 14 months." 

Théodule Landry died near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, in April 1857.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Théodule died at "age ca. 23 years." 

Louis Landry died near Chacahoula, Terrebonne Parish, in December 1858.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names, says that Louis died "at age 4 yrs." 

Zéolide Landry married Justilien Augeron in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Parish in October 1860.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Clairville Landry of Assumption Parish married fellow Acadian Laurenza Babin, also of Assumption Parish, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in September 1861.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not bother to give the couple's parents' names.  They settled probably on the upper bayou near the boundary between Ascension and Assumption parishes before moving to lower Bayou Teche.  Their son Laurent Odrosie was born near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, in August 1862, and Joseph Émile near Lydia, then in St. Martin but now in Iberia Parish, in December 1864. 

Joseph Landry died in Assumption Parish in November 1865.  The Plattenville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Joseph died at "age 48 years." 

Louis Landry married Séverine Cuvillier.  Their son Joseph Louis was born near Lockport, Lafourche Parish, in December 1865. 

Célestin, son of Jean Baptiste Landry and Françoise Arabie, married Émelie Victorine, daughter of German Creole Jacques Célestin Matherne, in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Parish in May 1867. 

Narcysse, probably Narcisse, Landry married Marthe Myrs, perhaps Mire.  Their son Joseph Treville was born near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, in November 1867. 

Eliza Landry gave birth to son Pierre MacMahon near Plattenville, Assumption Parish, in November 1867.  The priest who recorded the boy's baptism the following January did not give the father's name nor the mother's parents' names. 

Joseph G. Landry married Louis Theriot.  Their son Camille Gustave was born near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, in July 1868 but died the following September. 

Célestin Landry married fellow Acadian Angelina, also called Engelina, Trahan in a civil ceremony in Terrebonne Parish in January 1869.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  Their son Adam Aubin was born in Terrebonne Parish in December 1870. 

Jean Baptiste Landry married Marguerite Michel.  Their son Octave was born near Plattenville, Assumption Parish, in January 1869. 

Celena, perhaps Celina, Landry married Peter Clark in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Parish in April 1869.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Vigilia, daughter of Manuel Landry and Marie Estelle, married Émilien, son of fellow Acadian Jean Baptiste Robichaux, in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Parish in June 1869. 

NON-ACADIAN FAMILIES in LOUISIANA

At least one non-Acadian Landry appears in Louisiana church records during the colonial period.   She came to the colony from Switzerland decades before her Acadian namesakes arrived:

Anne-Marie, daughter of Jacob Landry of Basel, Switzerland, married Henry, son of Pierre Lebel of Paris, at New Orleans in October 1728. 

~

More non-Acadian Landrys, some of whom would have been called Foreign French by native Louisianians, immigrated from France or the Caribbean Basin during the antebellum period.   Those who remained in Louisiana probably settled at New Orleans:

Baptiste Landry, a 35-year-old carpenter and native of France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Baltic out of Aux Cayes, Haiti, in May 1820.  With him was 40-year-old Marie Dugas Landry, probably his wife.  She also was a native of France.  One wonders if Baptiste and Marie were descendants of Acadians who had remained in France. 

Louis Landry, a 40-year-old farmer from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Middlesex out of Le Havre, France, in December 1847.  With him was wife Louise, age 37, also a native of France, and son Gastave, age 5. 

.

During the antebellum period, three non-Acadian Landrys--one from Canada, another from France, and a Protestant from northwestern Switzerland--settled on the river at Pointe Coupée and on the western prairies.  Their numbers were miniscule compared to that of their Acadian namesakes, but most of their lines survived, especially the Swiss immigrants on the prairies:

Simon LANDRY (?-)

Simon, fils, son of Simon Landry and Marie Bélanger of Montréal, Canada, married Lucile, daughter of French Creole Manuel Labbé, at Pointe Coupee in 1805.  Did their family line survive? 

Descendants of Alexandre-Charles LANDRY (?-)

Alexandre-Charles, son of Étienne-Nicolas Landry and Marie-Adélaïde Lepeu of Paris, France, married Louise Antoinette, daughter of French Creole Jean Baptiste Peytavin of Opelousas and Bayou Teche, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in April 1811.

Alexandre Louis, born in St. Martin Parish in July 1814, married Marie Louise Henriette, called Henriette, daughter of Charles Lastrapes, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in June 1842.  Their son Alexandre Charles le jeune, perhaps called Charles, was born in St. Martin Parish in August 1843. 

Alexandre Charles le jeune married Marie Léontine, perhaps also called Léonie Judice, in St. Martin Parish in the 1860s.  Philippe Félix, perhaps their son, was born in St. Martin Parish in June 1866.  The family moved to New Orleans by the mid-1870s. 

Descendants of Jean-Jacques-Henri LANDRY (?-)

Jean Jacques Henri Landry of Villiers, Canton of Neuchâtel, Switzerland, married Susanne Catherine, called Catherine, Frasse probably in Switzerland.  Like most residents of their canton, they were Protestants. They came to Louisiana during the antebellum period and settled in St. Martin Parish, where their two sons married sisters from Neuchâtel who also were Protestants.  The sons settled in St. Martin and Lafayette parishes in the midst of their Acadian namesakes. 

1

Older son Charles Henri, born at Villiers, Canton of Neuchâtel, Switzerland, married Marie-Anne, daughter of David François Sandoz of Dombresson, Canton of Neuchâtel, Switzerland, and sister of his brother Henri's wife, "at the parish rectory," St. Martinville, in February 1822; Marie-Anne also was a Protestant.  Their son Charles Émile was born in St. Martin Parish in February 1824, Antoine, called Anthony, in December 1837, and Arthur Germain in March 1841.  Their daughters married into the Campbell and Perry families.  Charles Henri's succession record was filed at the St. Martinville courthouse, St. Martin Parish, in July 1847. 

1a

Charles Émile may have married Acadian Sismène Broussard by the early 1850s and settled in St. Martin Parish.  He married--or remarried to--Mathilde, daughter of Spanish Creole Edmond Castille, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in May 1863.

1b

Anthony married Marie Adeline, called Adeline, daughter of Anglo American Robert Perry, at the Abbeville church, Vermilion Parish, in June 1860; Anthony's sister Emilia Arsène married Adeline's brother Auguste C., a Protestant.  Anthony and Adeline's son Arthur Perry was born in St. Martin Parish in October 1862, and Stanislas near Abbeville, Vermilion Parish, in October 1867.  Anthony died near Abbeville in June 1870; the priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Anthony died "at age 30 yrs.," but he was 32. 

2

Younger son Jean Jacques Henri, fils, called Henri, born at Villiers, Canton of Neuchâtel, Switzerland, married Susanne Célestine, called Célestine, daughter of Jean Henri Sandoz of Dombresson, Canton of Neuchâtel, Switzerland, and sister of his brother Charles Henri's wife, at the bride's home in St. Martinville in November 1831; Susanne-Célestine was a Protestant.  Their son Louis Joseph was baptized at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, age 10 1/2 months, in October 1836.  They also had sons named Aimé Désiré, called Désiré, and Henri or Henry.  Their daughters married into the Bouges or Bourges and Whittington families. 

2a

Aimé Désiré married Sarah Anne, daughter of Anglo American James Whittington, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in May 1859; Aimé Désiré's sister Justine married Sarah's brother William.  Aimé Désiré and Sarah Anne's son Louis Robert was born in Lafayette Parish in August 1860, Aimé Désiré, fils in July 1862, and Félix Robin in August 1868. 

2b

Henri married Félicité, daughter of Jean Billaud, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in July 1865.  Their son Félix Henri was born in Lafayette Parish in September 1868, and Jules Gaston in August 1870.

As a result of the family's participation in the South's peculiar institution, some South Louisiana Landrys were Afro Creoles who had been owned, and in some cases freed, by members of the family: 

Clarisse, a femme de couleur libre, or free woman of color, daughter of Aimie Landry, married Adolphe, an homme de couleur libre, or free man of color, son of Armeide Wils, probably Wiltz, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in January 1848.

Francissi, also called Pierre, Landry married Maria Marceline, called Marceline, Becna or Becnel.  They likely were free persons of color.  Their son Augustum Léo was born near Plattenville, Assumption Parish, in February 1844.  Their daughter Mélanie, called a free woman of color (the recording priest called her father Pierre), married Joseph, son of Victor Coulon and a free man of color, at the Raceland church, Lafourche Parish, in March 1860. 

Antoine Landry was born "at Joseph Oubre's" near Vacherie, St. James Parish, in October 1858.  The priest who recorded the boy's baptism did not give the parents' names, but the names of Antoine's godparents shed light on the boy's social/racial status.  His godfather was Isadore "at A. Rome's", and his godmother was Marie "at Widow Kleiber's."  His godparents, in other words, were slaves, so Antoine likely was a slave as well, his mother probably owned by Joseph Oubre

Fanchanette Landry, "affranchi[e] de [freed woman of] Mr. Dorcile Landry" and daughter of Victoire ____, married Cyrille James, "affranchi de [freedman of] Mr. Charles Landry" and son of Marie ____, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in July 1866. 

Auguste Landry, "af[f]ranchi de [freedman of] Mr. Édouard Simon," married Charlotte Simon, "affranchie de [freed woman of] Mr. Édouard Simon," at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in October 1866; the marriage also was registered civilly.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names, but he did note that the church marriage recognized seven of their children, two sons and five daughters, born between January 1837 and February 1849.  Auguste died in St. Martin Parish the day after the church wedding; the St. Martinville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that August died "at age 55 yrs."; his succession record, calling him "alias Boisette," free man of color, was filed at the St. Martinville courthouse the day of his death. 

Mozella Nozalie Landry, "affranchi[e] de Placide Isaac," married Valsin Alexandre, "affranchi de Jean Thibodeaux," at the Youngsville church, Lafayette Parish, in February 1867.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Marie Landry, freedwoman, married Joseph Boudreaux, freedman, at the Youngsville church, Lafayette Parish, in June 1868.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

.

Descendants of Joseph LANDRY (?-)

Joseph Landry, probably a free man of color, married Aimée Delahoussaye, a free woman of color, in St. Martin Parish.

1

Joseph, fils, called Jo, perhaps the unnamed son of Joseph and Aimée who was born in St. Martin Parish in April 1840, married cousin Élizabeth Semiramis, daughter of Édouard Delahoussaye, homme de couleur libre, or free man of color, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in April 1861.  Joseph, fils remarried to Adèle, daughter of Louis Frilot, in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in June 1869, and sanctified the marriage at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, in July. 

2

Charles, described by the recording priest as a couleur libre, married Léonide, daughter of Éloise Judice, also a couleur libre, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in June 1865; the recording priest called Charles a son of Aimée Delahoussaye but did not give his father's name; it probably was Joseph, père

CONCLUSION

Landrys (two separate families, the progenitors cousins) were among the first families of Acadia, no Acadian family came earlier to Louisiana, and no other Acadian family sent more individuals to the colony.  Between February 1764, when the first Acadian exiles reached New Orleans, through 1785, when hundreds more arrived from France, over 200 Landrys--130 of them from Maryland alone--called Louisiana their new home.  (Nearly all of them were descendants of René le jeune of Acadia; only two of them, immigrant brothers from France, can be traced back to the older cousin, Rene l'aîné.)  Most of these Acadian Landrys settled on the Mississippi River along what was called the Acadian Coast, but their presence there was not substantial at first.  Not until the migrations from Maryland in 1766, 1767, and 1768 did the family become a significant one on the river.  During the late colonial period, centers of family settlement arose also on the western prairies and along Bayou Lafourche, but most Landrys remained on the river, in St. James, Ascension, Iberville, and West Baton Rouge parishes.  Most, not all, of the 1785 arrivals favored the Bayou Lafourche valley over the crowded river settlements; not until later in the colonial period, however, when Maryland exiles or their children moved from the river to Bayou Lafourche, did this third center of family settlement become substantial. 

Non-Acadian Landrys from Canada, France, and Switzerland appeared in St. Martin Parish in the early 1800s, but they were vastly outnumbered by their Acadian namesakes.  The family line from Switzerland, which arose in St. Martin Parish and spread western into nearby Lafayette, was especially vigorous.  Afro-Creole Landrys also lived in South Louisiana during the antebellum and immediate post-war periods. 

As they had occupied nearly every significant settlement in old Acadia, Landrys settled in every Acadian community of South Louisiana.   The family's settlement patterns in the late colonial and early antebellum periods resemble a series of waves spreading out from the family's substantial base on the Acadian Coast.  The first wave, no more than a ripple, moved out to the western prairies beginning in the early 1770s, followed by successive waves across the Atchafalaya Basin into the early antebellum period.  Most of the western Landrys settled in what became St. Martin, Lafayette, St. Mary, and Vermilion parishes, but at least one family set down roots on the Opelousas prairie south of the present city.  Meanwhile, beginning in the late 1780s, several waves of Landrys moved from the river to upper Bayou Lafourche, followed by ripples of movement deeper into the Lafourche and Terrebonne country during the early 1800s; at least two Landrys settled on the Gulf at Chenière Camanada, near Grand Isle, at the southern edge of Jefferson Parish; others moved from the upper bayou to the shores of Lake Verret, where some of their descendants hunted alligators.  During the early antebellum period, in a reversal of the usual Acadian migration pattern, a few Landry families moved from upper Bayou Lafourche back to the river.  Also in a reversal of the usual migration pattern, at least one Landry moved from the prairies to the river during the late antebellum period.  Following a more typical pattern of movement, Landrys from the Lafourche valley moved to the lower Atchafalaya, to the western prairies, and especially to lower Bayou Teche during the late antebellum and immediate post-war periods.  Evidently this movement was the beginning of a virtual family exodus.  A recent study of Louisiana families with French and Spanish roots notes:  "Today [1986] ... Landry families in Lafourche and Terrebonne parishes comprise but a small part of the clan in Louisiana."  Perhaps as part of that exodus, Landrys from the Lafourche valley were moving to the Vacherie area of St. James Parish during the immediate post-war period.  The Landrys nevertheless maintained a solid presence on the upper bayou in Assumption Parish. 

The family produced a number of wealthy indigo and sugar planters, a district commandant, and a lieutenant governor, most of them from families in river parishes.  Joseph dit Bellehomme Landry served as commandant of Ascension from 1799-1803 and was elected to the first state senate in 1812.  His son Trasimond served as lieutenant governor of Louisiana during the late 1840s. ...

According to a recent study of Louisiana families with French and Spanish roots, "Among the surnames of French origin in Louisiana that of Landry is second only to Hébert."  Interestingly, dozens more Landrys than Héberts emigrated to Louisiana, and Landry marriages outnumbered Hébert marriages by a substantial margin during the first century of Acadian presence in South Louisiana.  ...

Alligator hunter Troy Landry of the History Channel's popular series "Swamp People," is a direct descendant of one of many Landrys who came to Louisiana from Maryland. ...

The family's name also is spelled Lendry, Landri, Landris, L'audry in Louisiana.  A Landry family from Canada who settled in western Virginia spell their surname Londeree.

NOTES

01.  Wall of Names, 19, calls him Abraham LANDRY; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2521, calls him Abraham LANDRY, says he was born in 1712, gives his parents' names, says they were "de Pisiguit," says he married twice, first to Élizabeth, daughter of Charles LEBLANC & Marie GAUTEROT on 30 Jun 1732 at Grand-Pré, & then to Marguerite LEBLANC but does not give a date or place of marriage nor her parents' names, says he occupied lot number 59 on the west side of the Mississippi in 1759[sic] at St.-Jacques with 3 children, Marguerite, Madeleine, & Joseph, & lists his children as, by his first wife, Mathurin, born in 1737, Joseph in 1740, Étienne in 1742, Simon in 1747, Natalie in 1748, Anastasie in 1749, Marie in 1750, Marguerite in 1751, Pierre in 1752, & by his second wife, Élizabeth in c1753, ,Madeleine in c1755, & Joseph dit le cadet in 1757; White, DGFA-1, 933, calls him Abraham (dit Petit Abram) [LANDRY], gives his parents' names, says he was born in c1712, details his 3 marriages, including his wives' parents' names & his third wife's first husband's name, says he was at Oxford, MD, in 1763, at Cabahannocer [St.-Jacques] in 1769, age 59, at Ascension in 1770, age 56(sic), at Ascension in 1777, age 65, & was buried at Ascension on 20 Aug 1786; BRDR, 2:415 (ASC-1, 197c), his death/burial record, calls him Abraham LANDRY, but does not give his parents' names, mention a wife, or give his age at the time of his death.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 157; Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 175. 

02.  Wall of Names, 19, calls him Alexandre LANDRY; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2524, says he was born in c1760; BRDR, 2:369, 416 (SGA-14, 2, #3), his marriage record, calls him Alexandro LANDRI, says his wife was "of Morlais," gives his & her parents' names, says his parents were "of Acadia & France," but gives no witnesses to his marriage; BRDR, 4:310 (SGA-8, 109), his death/burial record, calls him Alexandre LANDRY, "age 70 yrs.," but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 435. 

BRDR, 4:310 (SGA-8, 109), the burial record of "Alexandre Madam" LANDRY, dated 7 Nov 1822, may be that of Alexandre's wife Modeste HÉBERT.  If so, she died only a week before he did. 

03.  Wall of Names, 38 (pl. 10L), calls him Aimable LANDRY, & lists him with 3 siblings, with the notation:  suplement a la liste des Acadiens embarques dans le navire Le St. Remy pour la Nouvelle Orleans [additional list of Acadians embarked on the ship Le St.-Rémi bound for New Orleans]; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 271, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Aimable-Étienne LANDRY, gives his parents' names, & says he was the godson of Joseph LANDRY & Marie D'ENTREMONT; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 65-66, Family No. 130, calls him Amable-Étienne [LANDRY], gives his parents' names, & details his family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 107, Family No. 198, calls him Amable-Étienne [LANDRY], gives his parents' names, & details his family's participation in the Poitou settlement in Poitou of the early 1770s as well as its voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 60-61, calls him Aimable LANDRY, graveur, age 19, on the embarkation list, & Aimable LANDRY, engraver, age 19, on the complete listing, says he was in the 6th Family on Supplément à la liste des Acadiens embarqués dans le navire Le Saint-Rémi pour la nouvelle-orleans [Additional list of Acadians embarked on the ship Le Saint-Rémi bound for New Orleans] with 3 siblings, &, calling him Aimable-Étienne [LANDRY], says he was born 10 Dec 1765 but gives no birthplace; BRDR, 2:416, 595 (ASC-2, 12), his marriage record, calls him Aimable LANDRY, does not give his or his wife's parents' names, & gives no witnesses to his marriage; BRDR, 5(rev.):352 (ASM-3, 225), his death/burial record, calls him Étienne Aimable LANDRY, "age 67 yrs.," but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife. 

He & his younger brother Abraham-Isaac may have been the only direct male descendants of René LANDRY l'aîné of Acadia to emigrate to Louisiana.  The many other Acadian LANDRYs who came to the colony were descendants of René l'aîné's younger cousin, René le jeune

04.  Wall of Names, 9, calls her Anastasie LANDRY; BRDR, 2:438 (ASC-4, 19), her death/burial record, calls her Maria Anastasia LANDRY, "age 48 years & Wife of Aman BABIN," & gives her parents' names.    

Ben Londeree, family historian, helped me find her parents.

05.  Wall of Names, 20, calls her Anastasie LANDRY; BRDR, 2:363, 417 (ASC-1, 136), her marriage record calls her Anastasia LANDRY, says her husband was "of Acadia, res. St. Gabriel," says her parents were Estevan [LANDRY] & Dorothea BABEIN, does not give her husband's parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Olivier LANDRY & Maturin LANDRY.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 158; Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 175; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 4, 14. 

She evidently was the daughter, & perhaps the only child, of her father's first wife. 

06.  Wall of Names, 25, calls her Anne LANDRY belle fille [of Olivier THIBODEAU]; BRDR, 2:247, 417-18 (PCP-2, pt. 2, 139a), one of her marriage records, calls her Anne LANDRY, calls her husband Joseph DOUCETTE, gives her & his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Augustin GREVENBERG & Gerald DE VERBOIS; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:259, 471 (SM Ch.: v.1, p.26; SM Ch.: Folio A-1, p.19), another of her marriage records, calls her Anne LANDRY, "resides in Attakapas," says her husband also "resides in Attakapas," gives her & his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were ____ BERARD, Augustin GREVEMBER, François GREVEMBER, ____ DURIEU, & Joseph LANDRY.   

Pointe Coupée priests evidently served as missionaries in the Attakapas District when the church along the Teche temporarily was without its own priest during the late colonial period. 

07.  Wall of Names, 14, calls her Anne LANDRY veuve Jean BROUSSARD; Arsenault, Généalogie, 1350, profile of first husband Jean BROUSSARD, calls his wife Osite LANDRY, daughter of Jean [LANDRY] & Madeleine MELANSON of Grand-Pré; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2522, profile of second husband René LANDRY, says they were married in c1753.  

Wall of Names, 21, implies that René LANDRY was a widower when he arrived in LA, so Arsenault's marriage date for this couple is absurd.  Since they were both unmarried when they reached LA & were counted together in the Cabanocé census of 1769, they were likely married at Cabanocé some time between late 1766 & mid-1769.

08.  Wall of Names, 22, calls her Anne LANDRY; BRDR, 3:479 (ASC-4, 81), her death/burial record, calls her Anna LANDRY, "age 77 yrs., wid. Pedro LEBLANC," but does not give her parents' names.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 156. 

Her estimated birth year is taken from the ages given in the Cabanocé/St.-Jacques census of 1769 & the Ascension census of 1770, which agree, not from her burial record, which seems to exaggerate her age. 

09.  Wall of Names, 23, calls her Anne LANDRY veuve Joseph MELANSON; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2447, profile for Augustin BROUSSARD in the LA section, says nothing about her marriage to Joseph MELANÇON; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-A:565 (SM Ch.: v.4, #907), her death/burial record, calls her Anne LANDRY, "native of Acadia, widow of Augustin BROUSSARD, inhabitant at Vermilion," says she was "age 78 years" when she died "at the home of her son Auguste [BROUSSARD], living at the same place [Vermilion]," that she was buried next day "in the parish cemetery," but does not give her parents' names.  See also Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 178; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 5; De Ville, Southwest LA Families, 1777, 14. 

Arsenault does mention her on p. 2554 as having married Joseph MELANÇON in c1758.  Wall of Names lists her as widow of Joseph MELANÇON, which is verified by information in the Attakapas census of 1777.  Arsenault, p. 2554, says that Joseph "décédé avant 1769," when Anne, listed as a widow, occupied lot number 141 on the east side of the Mississippi at Cabanocé.  The only Joseph MELANÇON listed in the earlier Cabanocé census, that of 1766, was 15 & had no wife or children, so that is probably another Joseph MELANÇON.  See Bourgeois, p. 169.  I will follow Wall of Names & assume that Joseph died in exile, before reaching LA, & therefore should not be included on this list of Acadian exiles to LA until I find evidence to the contrary.  

For how I derived Anne's marriage date with Joseph as c1760, see the footnote for the profile of Augustin BROUSSARD, which also explains how I derived the c1769/1770 marriage date with Augustin.

Family historian Ben Londeree suggested who her parents might be.

10.  Wall of Names, 19, calls her Anne LANDRY.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 157.  

Her marriage to Michel BOURGEOIS is pure guess work.  Her middle name is from the marriage record in Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 425, & the Cabanocé census of 1769 in Voorhies, J., p. 467, & Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 176.  

11.  Wall of Names, 19, calls her Anne LANDRY, & lists her with brothers [Pierre-]Amand & François but separately from siblings Charles, Marie, & Pelagie. Why?  She is easily confused with Anne-Osite LANDRY, daughter of Abraham dit Petit Abram.

12.  Wall of Names, 20, calls her Anne LANDRY; BRDR, 2:198, 418 (SJA-1, 48), her marriage record, calls her Anne LANDRY of Acadia, gives her & her husband's parents' names, says both sets of parents were Acadians, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Mathurin BENOIT, Herman BREAU, & Joseph LANDRY [probably her brother]; BRDR, 2:416 (ASM-3, 14), her death/burial record, calls her Ana LANDRY, age 34 years, spouse of Joseph COMMAUX, but does not give her parents' names. 

Her middle name is from her daughter Rosalie COMEAUX's marriage record, dated 29 Aug 1796, in BRDR, 2:201 (ASM-2, 21).  Rosalie married Jean George MALBROUGH, & their daughter Euphrosine MALBROUGH was the second wife of Jean Baptiste, called Baptiste dit Petit-René LANDRY, paternal ancestor of alligator hunter Troy Landry of The History Channel's popular series "Swamp People."  Moreover, Anne-Isabelle was the sister of Baptiste dit René's father Pierre Alexis LANDRY. 

13.  Wall of Names, 18, calls her Anne LANDRY; BRDR, 2:417 (SGA-8, 10, #41), her death/burial record, calls her Anna LANDRY, age 46 years & spouse of Alexandro HEVER, but does not give her parents' names.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 157; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 434; De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 9.

Her estimated birth year is from the ages given in the Spanish report of 1767& her burial record, not the St.-Gabriel census of 1777.  

14.  Wall of Names, 18, calls her Anne LANDRY; BRDR, 2:418 (SGA-8, 29, #161), her death/burial record, calls her Anne LANDRY, age 62 years, widow of Joseph HÉBERT, & gives her parents' names. 

15.  Wall of Names, 19, calls her Anne LANDRY; BRDR, 2:417, 622 (ASC-1, 127), her marriage record, calls her Anna LANDRY, give her & her husband's parents' names, says both sets of parents were Acadians & his parents also were "res. St. Gabriel at Manchac," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Anselme LANDRY & Jean LANDRY. 

Her husband may have been the Joseph RICHARD with the family of Bonaventure LEBLANC at Baltimore, MD, in Jul 1763.  See Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 158.  This is significant because Bonaventure LEBLANC's son Joseph dit Adons married Anne's older sister Marguerite. 

Was she with her husband at St.-Gabriel in 1777?  See De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 3

16.  Wall of Names, 16, calls her Anne LANDRY veuve DUGAS; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2527, profile for Mathurin LANDRY in the LA section, calls her Anne LANDRY, says they married in c1768 but gives no place of marriage, does not give her parents' names, her birth year or her birth place, & says nothing of her being a widow; Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 171, perhaps her marriage record, calls her Anne LANDRY, & says she & her husband were married "presumably 1768," but gives no place of marriage; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 425, perhaps her marriage record, calls her Anne LANDRIE, & says she & her husband were among the "Acadians married in the city," but does not give a marriage date; BRDR, 3:479 (ASC-4, 127), probably her death/burial record, calls her Anne LANDRY, "age 78 yrs., wid. LANDRY," but does not give her parents' names or her husband's first name.  See also Bourgeois, p.175; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 2, 12.

I am only guessing, thru process of elimination, that this is the Anne LANDRY who married Mathurin LANDRY.  He came to LA in 1768, so she may have arrived then as well. 

Are her sons Athanase & Michel DUGAS double listings in Wall of Names for the sons of Jean DUGAS & Marie-Charlotte GODIN, who had 2 sons with the same names? 

17.  Wall of Names, 31 (pl. 7R), calls her Anne [LANDRY], & lists her with her parents & 3 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 106, Family No. 196; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 24-25, calls her Anne, sa [Jean-Baptiste LANDRY's] fille, age 9, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Anne LANDRY, his [Jean-Baptiste LANDRY's] daughter, age 9, on the complete listing, says she was in the 60th Family aboard La Bergère with her parents & 3 siblings, & that, calling her Marie-Anne, she was born in 1775 but gives no birthplace; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-B:320-21, 432-33 (SM Ch.: v.4, #228), her marriage record, calls her Marie-Anne LANDRY of Châtellerault in Saintonge, France, says her husband was from St. James Parish on the Mississippi, gives her & his parents' names, says both her parents were deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Jean-Baptiste BROUSSARD, Pierre HARDY, Jean-Baptiste DAUTREUIL, Pierre GIROUARD, & Frédéric TENHOLT; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 3:391 (Laf.Ch.: v.3, p. 86), her death/burial record, calls her Marie Anette LANDRY, m. Joseph GIROIR, but does not give her parents' names.

The Vermilionville priest who recorded her burial misstated her age by a decade!

18.  Wall of Names, 45, calls he Anne LANDRY; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 540, Family No. 609, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marie-Anne LANDRY, gives her parents' names, says her godparents were Pierre LEBLANC & Marie TÉRRIOT, & that her family resided at St.-Servan from 1763-72; BRDR, 2:442, 524 (SGA-14, 20), her marriage record, calls her Mariana LANDRY, called her husband Andrés MARTINEZ, give her & his parents' names, calls her parents Paul [LANDRY] & Anna ANTERIO (sic) TERIO intended, of St. Malo, France, says his parents were "of St. Cruz, Canary Islands," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Joseph LEBLANC & Maturin LANDRY; BRDR, 6:380 (SJB-Brusly-4, 6), perhaps her death/burial record, calls her Marie Anne LANDRY, "age 75 yrs.," but give no parents' names nor mentions a husband.     

Her husband is called a MARTIN as well as a MARTINEZ in other South LA church records.  See BRDR, 2:520-22, 3:606, 717; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-B:651, 2-C:531, 533.

If she died in West Baton Rouge Parish in Nov 1847, she would have been age 79, not 75, & most likely a widow. 

19.  Wall of Names, 20, calls her Gertrude LANDY; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2456-57; BRDR, 2:167, 426 (ASC-1, 126), her marriage record, calls her Gertrude LANDRY, calls her husband Augustin BIJEAU (BULOL), gives her & his parents' names, says all parents were Acadians, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Anselm BELLILE & Joseph CONSTANT; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:475 (SM Ch.: v.4, #44), her death/burial record, calls her Gertrude LANDRY m. Augustin BIJEAU, does not give her parents' names, & says she died "at age 32 yrs."

20.  Wall of Names, 19, calls Anne-Madeleine LANDRY; BRDR, 2:419, 467 (SJA-1, 43a), her marriage record, calls her Ausite LANDRIS, calls her husband Charles (Jean) & Jean-Charles LEBLANC, gives her & his parents' names, says "both parties Acadians by nationality," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Thomas THÉRIOT & Francois LANDRY. 

Why did the priest who recorded her marriage call her Ausite, which is Osite?  Was this a dite for Ann?

21.  Wall of Names, 45, calls her Anne LANDRY; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 542-43, Family No. 611; BRDR, 2:219, 417 (SJO-3, 6), the record of her first marriage, calls her Anna Maria LANDRY, calls her husband Simon DEGRE, says her parents were Grineo [LANDRY] & Margarita BALA "of Isle of Malo," that his parents were Olivero [DEGRE] & Maria LeBlanche LEBLANC "of Bellille en Mer, France," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Josef VASQ & Simon Pedro DEGRE [her husband's first cousin]; BRDR, 2:342, 442 (PCP-19), the record of her second marriage, calls her Marie LANDRY, widow of Simon DAIGLE, calls her husband Pierre GUÉDERY, "res. Manchac," gives her & his parents' names, says her mother & both of his parents were deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Mato GUÉDRY, Groom's Brother, & François or Françoise DAIGLE.

Pointe Coupée was northwest & across the river from Manchac.  Why didn't she & her second husband marry at Baton Rouge, which was closer to Manchac & had its own church since 1793? 

22.  Wall of Names, 30 (pl. 7L), calls her Anne-Susanne [LANDRY], & lists her with her parents & 3 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 108, Family No. 200, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Anne-Suzanne LANDRY; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 16-17, calls her Anne-Susanne, sa [Pierre LANDRY's] fille, age 9, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Anne-Susanne LANDRY, his [Pierre LANDRY's] daughter, age 9, on the complete listing, says she was in the 28th Family aboard La Bergère with her parents & 3 siblings, &, calling her Anne-Suzanne, says she was baptized in 1776 but gives no place of baptism; BRDR, 3:479, 685 (ASM-2, 92), her marriage record, calls her Ana Susana LANDRY of Nantes, calls her husband Félix PENRO "of Painboeuf, Nantes," gives her & his parents' names, says her father was deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Jean Rafaël LANDRY [her brother] & Antonio BOUTARY. 

Was her mother-in-law a TRAHAN?  BRDR, 3:685, hints that she was, calling her Rosa TRAUAIN TRAHAN.  Are the BRDR's compilers telling us that she was a TRAHAN?  The other half of the marriage record in 3:479 does not include the TRAHAN addition. 

23.  Not in Wall of Names.  Arsenault, Généalogie, 2526, calls him Anselme LANDRY, says he was born in 1734, probablement son of Alexandre LANDRY & Anne FLAN, says he married Osithe LANDRY but gives no wedding date or place nor her parents' names, says his children were Joseph-Eusèbe, born in 1773, & Marie-Céleste in 1778, but gives no birth place, & lists him with brothers Joseph, Firmin, Paul-Marie, & François-Sébastien[sic]; BRDR, 1b:102 (PCP-3, 282; PCP-4, 39), his marriage record, calls him Anselme LANDRY, "native of Acadia," calls his wife Marie-Magdeleine LANDRY, "native of Holy Family Parish, Acadia," gives his & her parents' names, calls his mother Anne FLANE, says he & his wife were granted dispensation for consanguinity of the 4th degree, & says the witnesses to their marriage were Jean LANDRY [his brother], Paul LANDRY [his brother], Firmin LANDRY [his brother], & Jean LANDRY; BRDR, 3:481 (ASC-4, 52), perhaps his death/burial record, calls him Anselme LANDRY, but does not give his parents' names, mention a wife, or give his age at the time of his death.  See also De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 4.

His estimated birth year is from the St.-Gabriel census of 1777. 

Although he is recorded at Baltimore in Jul 1763 with his family, he is not in the 1767 Spanish report for St.-Gabriel with them.  So when did he reach LA?  He is not on the list of MD exiles who reached New Orleans in Feb 1768.  But he had reached the colony in time to marry in Apr 1769.  The third--& final--group of Acadian exiles from MD did not reach LA until Oct 1769; this was the ill-starred expedition aboard the English ship Britannia out of Port Tobacco. Very few Acadians made it to LA as individuals; almost all of them came as members of parties who were duly recorded by French & Spanish officials at New Orleans.  Perhaps Anselme LANDRY was an exception to the rule, which may explain why this Acadian immigrant, so thoroughly documented in LA record, is not in Wall of Names.   See <thecajuns.com/britania.htm>, "Passengers on the Ship Britania"; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 428-39. 

His first marriage was recorded in Pointe Coupée because St.-Gabriel, where he lived, did not have a church until 1773, Ascension downriver from St.-Gabriel did not have a church until 1772, & Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, even farther downriver, did not have its own church until 1770.  Thus, Pointe Coupée (whose parish, St.-François, was created in 1728) was the closest community to St.-Gabriel in 1769 with a church & a priest.  Either the couple & the wedding party went up to Pointe Coupée for the wedding, or, more likely, the priest from Pointe Coupée married them at St.-Gabriel while making his missionary rounds to the Acadian communities downriver.  

Was Osithe, or Osite, his wife's dite?  If so, it would be an usual one for someone named Marie-Madeleine.  The baptismal record of son Joseph-Eusèbe, dated 13 Apr 1774, in BRDR, 2:430 (SGA-4a, 6), the marriage records of daughter Céleste, dated 4 May 1794 & 25 Jul 1802, of son Eusèbe, dated 9 Feb 1795, & son Pierre, dated 25 Apr 1802, in BRDR, 2:420 (ASC-2, 58), 2:421 (ASC-2, 100), 2:423 (ASC-2, 62), 2:447 (ASC-2, 95), call the mother Osita LANDRY & Osite LANDRY, not Marie-Madeleine, probably the source for Arsenault, cited above.  However, the baptismal record of oldest son Anselme-Bénoni, dated 4 Jun 1770, in BRDR, 2:418 (SJA-1, 2a), calls the mother ... Marie Magdelaine LANDRIS, not Osite.  Note that in the St.-Gabriel census of 1777, the census taker did not record Anselme's wife's name, only her presence in his household--typical of that census. 

One wonders, then, if Anselme remarried to another LANDRY named Osite in the early 1770s.  Neither of the 2 Osite LANDRYs listed in Wall of Names fit here, nor do 2 of the 3 LANDRYs whose middle name was Osite.  Rose-Osite LANDRY, called Osite, widow of Janvier BREAUX, who came to LA as a 30-year-old widow in 1768 with the BREAU clan from MD & settled with them at San Luìs de Natchez, could fit the bill.  She & Anselme were the same age, & Rose-Osite could have moved to St.-Gabriel in 1769 or 1770 after the Spanish released the Acadians from Natchez.  Still, the age given for Anselme's wife at St.-Gabriel in 1777--35, compared to his 39--is off by years if the wife was Osite, widow of Janvier BREAUX (as I said, Anselme & Osite were the same age).  Note, however, that in the St.-Gabriel census of 1777, Anselme and his unnamed wife had an unnamed 13-year-old daughter in their household.  Osite's daughter Marguerite BREAUX, born in c1763, would have been 14 in 1777 (Marguerite married Pierre LEBLANC at nearby Ascension in Oct 1778 at age 15).  But Osite also had daughters named Madeleine BREAUX, born in c1765, and Marie BREAUX, born in Aug 1767, who would have been ages 12 & 10 in 1777.  The only other child listed with Anselme LANDRY in 1777 was a 6-year-old son (perhaps Anselme-Bénoni by his first wife), so one wonders what happened to the other girls.  Still, I am convinced that Anselme had 2 wives. 

His burial record is merely a guess because of the sloppy record keeping of the priest(s) at Ascension.  It would have been nice if the priest had at least given Anselme's wife's name or his age at the time of his death. 

24.  Wall of Names, 28 (pl. 6R), calls him Anselme LANDRY, & lists him with his wife & no children; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 522, Family No. 587, calls him Anselme LANDRY, gives his parents' names, says he was born in c1743 but gives no birthplace, details his marriage; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 6-7, calls him Anselme LANDRY, marin, age 50, on the embarkation list, Anselmo LANDRY on the debarkation list, & Anselme LANDRY, sailor, age 50, on the complete listing, says he was in the 21st Family aboard Le Bon Papa wit his wife, & details his marriage but does not give the names of his or his wife's parents; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:336 (Thib.Ct.Hse.: Succ.: Year 1810), his death/succession record, calls him Anselme LANDRY, but does not give his parents' names, mention a wife, or even give his age at the time of his death.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 51, 75, 125. 

His estimated birth year is based not on the age given in the passenger list of Le Bon Papa but on the ages given in the Lafourche valley censuses of 1795, 1797, & 1798, which conform to Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo.  Note how much younger he was than his wife.  

25.  Wall of Names, 19 (pl. 4L), calls him Athanase LANDRY, & lists him with his wife & no children; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2534, calls him Athanase LANDRY, does not give his birth year or his parents' names, calls his wife Madeleine HÉBERT but does not give his wedding date or place of marriage, lists only 1 child, son Joseph, born in 1778 but gives no birthplace, & says he settled at St.-Gabriel.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 157; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth Century Louisianians, 433; De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 9.

His estimated birth year is taken from the age given in the Spanish report of 1767, not the St.-Gabriel census of 1777.  

26.  Wall of Names, 19, calls him Augustin LANDRY; White, DGFA-1, 951, calls him Augustin LANDRY, gives his parents' names, says, according to testimony given by relatives at Belle-Île-en-Mer, France, that he was born at Ste.-Famille, Pigiguit, in May 1719, that he married first to Anne, daughter of Étienne RIVET & Anne LEPRINCE, at Ste.-Famille, Pigiguit, in 1742, that he married again to Marie-Madeleine, daughter of Jean BABIN & Marguerite BOURG, at Pigiguit in c1752, says he was at Upper Marlboro, MD, in 1763, was on the list of LA arrivals in 1767, age 49, on the list of arrivals at St.-Gabriel in 1767, age 42 (sic), & that he was buried at St.-Gabriel on 2 May 1781, no age given; BRDR, 2:418 (SGA-5, 53), probably his death/burial record, calls him Augustin LANDRY "of Manchak," but does not give his parents' names, mention a wife, or give his age at the time of his death.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 155; De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 9. 

There were 2 Augustin LANDRYs at St-Gabriel, evidently no kin to one another.  The Augustin LANDRY who married Anne-Marie FOREST seems to have been the younger one who later married Isabel LANDRY, widow of Etienne RIVET, père.  See note 27, below. 

27.  Wall of Names, 19 (pl. 4L), calls him Augustin LANDRY 2, & lists him with siblings Alexandre, Pierre, Anne-Madeleine, Geneviève, Cécile, & Madeleine; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2524-25, calls him Augustin LANDRY, says he was born in 1734, son of Joseph [LANDRY] & Marie-Josèphe COMEAUX of Grand-Pré, says he married Anne-Marie FOREST in c1760 but gives no place of marriage, says he was at St.-Gabriel d'Iberville but gives no date, & lists his children as Marie-Christine, born in 1777, & Marie-Francoise in 1779 but gives no birthplaces; BRDR, 2:418, 427-28 (SGA-14, 4), the record of his second marriage, calls him Augustin LANDRI, widower of Maria FORET, calls his wife Isabel LANDRI, widow of Esteban RIVET, gives his & her parents' names, says both sets of parents were "of Acadia," but does not give any witnesses to his marriage; BRDR, 2:418 (SGA-8, 16, #75), probably his death/burial record, calls him Augustino LANDRY, but does not give his parents' names, mention a wife, or give his age at the time of his death.  See also See Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 153; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 435. 

In his LA section, Arsenault complicates the picture by including on p. 2524 another Augustin LANDRY, born in c1758, son of Joseph LANDRY & Marie RICHARD of Pigiguit, married first to Marie FOREST & then to Isabelle LANDRY, daughter of Pierre LANDRY & Claire BABIN & widow of Étienne RIVET, at St.-Gabriel in 1786, lists his children as, from the first marriage, Marie-Françoise, born in 1779 but gives no birthplace, & says this Augustin LANDRY was the brother of Pierre & Alexandre. 

I am combining Arsenault's 2 Augustin LANDRYs, giving him the correct set of parents, the most likely birth year, & 2 wives, for the following reasons: 

White, DGFA-1, 925, shows that the Joseph LANDRY who married Marie-Josèphe COMEAUX died in Jun 1764 at St.-Servan, France.  That means his children would have come to LA from France, not MD, but that did not happen; the Acadians who settled at San Luis de Natchez in 1768 came from MD. 

Wall of Names insists that its Augustin LANDRY 2 was the older brother & probably the guardian of 6 his siblings--all children of Joseph LANDRY & Marie-Josèphe RICHARD.  Since Joseph & Marie are not listed with their 7 children in Wall of Names, they did not come to LA but likely had died in exile, doubtlessly in MD, because they were at Port Tobacco in Jul 1763.  See Jehn, cited above. 

Arsenault, pp. 2524-25, says that the Augustin LANDRY born in 1743 married Anne-Marie FOREST in c1760 & says she gave him 2 daughters in 1777 & 1779, which means that he would have come to LA with a wife.  But Wall of Names lists him only with his siblings, not with a wife, which means if he had married Anne-Marie FOREST in c1760, she would have been dead in Feb 1768 when he reached the colony.  However, BRDR, 2:440, 443 (ASC-1, 27; ASC-1, 59), shows the baptisms of 2 girls in 1774 (not 1777) & 1779 at Ascension who were daughters of ... Augustin LANDRY & Anne-Marie or Maria FORET, so the real Augustin most likely married after he came to LA despite Arsenault's marrying him off to Anne-Marie in c1760. 

28.  Wall of Names, 19, calls him Basil LANDRY 2, & lists him singly; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2524; BRDR, 2:419, 626 (SJA-1, 38a), the record of his first marriage, calls him Basille LANDRY, calls his wife Marie RICHARD, gives his & her parents' names, calls his mother Marguerite PONDEROTTE, says both sets of parents were "of Acadia," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Éstienne LANDRY & Michel DUGAS; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:472-73, 577 (SM Cte.Hse.: OA-v.4 1/2 #89; SM Ch.: v.3, #138), the records of his second marriage, dated 27 Sep 1786 in the courthouse record & 3 Oct 1786 in the church record, call him Basil/Basile LANDRY, "native of Acadia," calls his wife Marianne MIRE, "from the parish of St. Jacques sur le fleuve (on the River), says she was a minor daughter, gives his & her parents' names, says his father was deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Simon BROUSSARD, Charles PREJEAN, Firmain GIROUARD, Jean-Baptiste CORMIER, Simon MIRE, & Magdelaine CORMIER. 

There is not doubt that he was the Basile LANDRY who married Marie-Anne MIRE. 

The Attakapas censuses of 1781 & 1785 do not include the names or the ages of dependents, so it is difficult to tell which Basile LANDRY is being listed, the one born in c1750 or the older one born in c1727, hence the ?s at the end of the notation.

29.  Wall of Names, 19, calls him Basil LANDRY; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2522, the LA section, calls him Basile LANDRY, says he was born in 1727, gives his parents' names, says they were "de Pisiguit, Acadie," says he married Brigitte BOUDREAUX in c1753 but gives no place of marriage, gives her parents' names, says his second wife was Francoise VINCENT, gives the date & place of their marriage & her parents' names but not her first husband's name, & says he died at Donaldsonville on 12 Mar 1788 but does not give his age at the time of his death; White, DGFA-1, 951, calls him Basile LANDRY, jumeau [of sister Brigitte], gives his parents' names, says, according to the testimony given by relatives at Belle-Île-en-Mer in France that he was born at Ste.-Famille, Pigiguit, on 14 May 1727, says he married Brigitte BOUDROT in c1753 but gives no place of marriage, gives her parents' names, says his second wife was Anne-Euphrosine VINCENT, widow of Michel TRAHAN, gives the date & place of their marriage & her parents' names, says he was at Upper Marlboro, MD, in 1763, on the list of LA arrivals in 1768, age 42, & that he died at St.-Martinville on 12 Mar 1788, age 60; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:472-73, 789 (SM Cte.Hse.: OA-v.4 1/2 #90; SM Ch.: v.3, #115), the records of his second marriage, dated 15 Mar 1786 in the courthouse record & 23 May 1786 in the church record, call him Basile LANDRY, "native of Acadia" &  "de la paroisse de la Ste. Famille à Piquiguy en Acadie (from the Parish of Holy Family at Pisiguit in Acadia)," says he was a major son, calls his wife Francoise/Marie-Froisine VINCENT, "wid. of Michel TRAHAN, also native of Acadie" & "a widow, natif de la Paroisse de la Vielle Habitation en Acadie (native of the Parish of the Old Habitation in Acadia)," says she was a major daughter, gives his & her parents' names, says both fathers were deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Élie & Jacques JENNE, Mr. DUCREST, "officier Major de ce Poste (Major officer of this Post)," Amand LANDRY, Claude DUHON, Louis ROGER, & Paul TRAHAN; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:472 (SM Ch.: v.4, #21), perhaps his death/burial record, calls him Basile LANDRY m. Marie MIRE[sic], does not give his parents' names, & says he died "at age a little over 60 yrs."

Which parish in Acadia was de la Vielle Habitation, or the Old Habitation?  St.-Jean-Baptiste on the lower river at Port-Royal was the colony's oldest surviving "habitation" & its original church parish.  However, Anne-Euphrosine dite Françoise VINCENT was born at Grand-Pré in May 1726, not at Port-Royal/Annapolis Royal, & Grand-Pré's parish was St.-Charles-des-Mines.  Is "old habitation" referring to the oldest parish in the Minas Basin?  Or perhaps a stream in the Minas Basin.  See Appendix for a list of church parishes in Acadia before the exile.

The Attakapas censuses of 1781 & 1785 do not include the names or the ages of dependents, so it is difficult to tell which Basile LANDRY is being listed, the one born in c1727 or the younger one born in c1750, hence the ?s at the end of the notation.

Why does Arsenault say that he died at Donaldsonville when his burial was recorded at Attakapas?  Why does the priest at Atakapas who recorded his burial say he married Marie MIRE, who actually was the wife of the younger Basile LANDRY?  Strange. 

30.  Wall of Names, 38 (pl. 10L), calls her Bonne-Louise-Marie LANDRY, soeur [of Aimable LANDRY], & lists her with 3 siblings, with the notation:  suplement a la liste des Acadiens embarques dans le navire Le St. Remy pour la Nouvelle Orleans [additional list of Acadians embarked on the ship Le St.-Rémi bound for New Orleans]; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 271, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Bonne-Marie-Louise LANDRY, & gives her parents' but not her godparents' names; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 65-66, Family No. 130, calls her Bonne-Louise [LANDRY], gives her parents' names, & details her family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 107, Family No. 198, calls her Bonne-Louise [LANDRY], gives her parents' names, & details her 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, 60-61, calls her Bonne-Louise-Marie, sa [Aimable LANDRY's] soeur, age 17, on the embarkation list, & Bonne-Louise-Marie LANDRY, his [Aimable LANDRY's] sister, age 17, on the complete listing, says she was in the 6th Family on Supplément à la liste des Acadiens embarqués dans le navire Le Saint-Rémi pour la nouvelle-orleans [Additional list of Acadians embarked on the ship Le Saint-Rémi bound for New Orleans] with 3 siblings, & that she was born 14 Apr 1767 but gives no birthplace; BRDR, 2:434 (ASC-1, 164), probably her marriage record, calls her Luisa LANDRY, calls her husband Lucas MAROIS "of Veneciano (Italy?)," says the marriage took place on "11 Feb 1788 (sic) 1786 intended," does not gives any of the parents' names, & says the witness to her marriage was Juan ESTNADO.  

The 1786 date of this marriage, the dearth of Louise LANDRYs in LA at this time, & the fact that most of the passengers aboard L'Amitié settled on upper Bayou Lafourche, lead me to believe that she was the wife of Lucas MAROIS.  If it is her, why did none of her siblings witness her marriage?  Also, if this is her, she was widowed within weeks of her marriage.  BRDR, 2:517 (ASC-1, 198c), has a burial record for Lucas MAROI/MAROIS, a Venetian, buried 23 Sep 1786 at Ascension.  There was a Joaquin MAROI/MAROIS at Ascension who married Rosalie FORET; he & Lucas may have been brothers.  If so, Lucas MAROIS's parents would have been Carlos MAROIS & Carlotta OLIVIER, but this is pure speculation.

Did she remain on upper Bayou Lafourche after her husband's death?  If not, where did she go?

31.  Wall of Names, 39 (pl. 10L) calls her Bonne-Marie LANDRY petit fille [of Francois LANDRY], & lists her with her widowed grandfather, a brother, & a cousin; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 271, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Bonne-Marie-Adélaïde LANDRY, gives her parents' names, calls her mother Cécille LA GARELLE, & says her godparents were Jean BROUSSAR & Geneviève GARELLE; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 63, Family No. 124, calls her Anne-Bonne-Marie [LANDRY], gives her parents' names, calls her mother Cécile LA GARENNE, her grandparents' names, &, listing her father, mother, & siblings Frédéric [LANDRY], Marie-Victoire [LANDRY], & Anne-Apoline [LANDRY], who was baptized 30 Oct 1774 at Archigny, goddaughter of Pierre AMIRAULT & ___, details the family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes,103-04, Family No. 191, calls her Anne-Bonne-Marie [LANDRY], gives her parents' names, & details the family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 68-69, calls her Bonne-Marie, sa [Francois LANDRY's] petite fille, age 16, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Bonne-Marie LANDRY, granddaughter [of Francois LANDRY], age 16, on the complete listing, says she was in the 12th Family aboard L'Amitié with her widowed paternal grandfather, a brother, & a cousin, details her parents' marriage, including their parents' names, &, calling her Bonne-Marie-Adélaïde [LANDRY], says she was born 27 Jul 1769 but gives no birthplace; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 62-63, under Lista parcial de vientitres casamientos acadianos arregalados par Navarro, 20 novembre 1785 [Partial List of 23 marriages Navarro arranged on 20 November 1785], A. Marriages celebrated on 20 November 1785, calls her Marie LANDRY, says she was in the 18th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi[sic], calls her husband Josef LEJEUNE (son of Anastasia LEBRON, widow LEJEUNE/Joseph LEJEUNE (Anastasie LEVRON, wid. LEJEUNE), &, calling her Bonne-Maria-Adélaïde LANDRY of Normandy, France, details her marriage, calls her husband Josef LEGEUNE, native of Liverpool, England, & gives his & her parents' names; NOAR, 4:180, 189 (SLC, M5, 43), her marriage record, calls her Bonne-Maria-Adélaïde LANDRY, "native of Normandy in France," calls her husband Josef LEGEUNE, "native of Liverpool in England," gives her & his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Vicente LLORCA & Josef MARTINEZ; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:473, 518 (NO Ch.: v.2, p.43, #87), another record of her marriage, calls her Bonne-Marie-Adélaïde LANDRY, "native of Normandy in France," says her husband was "native of Lebrepoul (Liverpool) in England," gives her & his parents' names, but gives no witnesses to her marriage; BRDR, 2:439 (ASM-3, 14), her death/burial record, calls her Maria Bona Adélaïdes LANDRY, "age 24 years ... married to Josef LEJEUNE," & gives her parents' names. 

32.  Wall of Names, 10, calls her Catherine LANDRY veuve Antoine BABIN; White, DGFA-1, 61, calls her Catherine LANDRY, does not give her parents' names, gives her husband's name & his parents' names, details her marriage, & says her husband died before 20 Jun 1768; BRDR, 2:420 (ASC-1, 188a), probably her death/burial record, calls her Catalina LANDRY, age 60 years, but does not give her parents' names or mention a husband.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 436, 438. 

Why does White say her husband died "av [avant, or before] 20 juin 1768"?  The Spanish report of 1768, dated months earlier, in Feb or Mar, soon after the BREAU party reached LA, clearly calls her a widow.  See Voorhies, J., cited above.  One wonders how much longer before the date did he die.  Months?  Years?

33.  Wall of Names, 19 (pl. 4L), calls her Cécile LANDRY, & lists her with siblings Augustin 2, Alexandre, Pierre, Anne-Madeleine, Geneviève, & Madeleine; BRDR, 1b:102, 162 (PCP-3, 259, PCP-4, 34), her marriage record, calls her  Cécile LANDRY, calls her husband Michel RIVAIS, native of Acadia, gives her & his parents' names, calls her mother Marie DUGAS, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Firmin BABIN, Catherine LANDRY, & Claire BABIN; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:473, 675 (BRDA: PCP: 3, p.270), another record of her marriage, calls her Cécile LANDRY, calls her husband Michel RIVAIS "of Acadia," says "Bride & Groom are residents of Fort St. Louis, Natchez," gives her & his parents' names, but gives no witnesses to her marriage; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 3:396 (BRDR: PCP 3, p.270), yet another record of her marriage, calls her Cécile LANDRY, calls her husband Michel RIVAIS, gives her & his parents' names, but gives no witnessed to her marriage.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 435; De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 8.

Wall of Names includes her with the LANDRY siblings supervised by eldest brother Augustin, which church records reveal were children of Joseph LANDRY & Marie-Josèphe RICHARD (see, for example, the marriage records of Augustin, Geneviève, & Madeleine LANDRY in BRDR, 1b:102, 2:418, 435); however, Cécile's marriage record, cited above, calls her mother Marie DUGAS, not RICHARD.  Strange. 

Her estimated birth year is taken from the age given Spanish report of Feb 1768, which differs considerably from the St.-Gabriel census of 1777. 

Her marriage was recorded at Pointe-Coupée because the Acadian community of San Luìs de Natchez, upriver from Pointe-Coupée, did not have a priest, so the Point-Coupée priests served that community also.  The marriage is recorded--twice--in Father Hébert's Southwest LA Records because 2 of her RIVET grandsons left St.-Gabriel & settled on the western prairies in the 1820s and 1830s.

34.  Wall of Names, 19 (pl. 4L), calls him Charles LANDRY, & lists him with siblings Marie & Pélagie; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2526, calls him Charles LANDRY, says he was born in 1738, son of Charles LANDRY & Marie LEBLANC of "Pisiguit," says he married Marie LANDRY in c1760 but does not give the place of marriage or her parents' names, details his second marriage, including his wife's parents' names, says he occupied lot number 162 on the east bank of the Mississippi at St.-Jacques in 1769, that his sister Pélagie, born in 1749, lived with him in 1769, that he moved to Ascension, & lists his children as, by his first marriage, Pierre-Baptiste, born in 1773, by his second marriage, Ange, born in 1777, Céleste in 1779, Mathilde in 1781, & Marie-Madeleine in 1782, but gives no birth places, & lists him with brothers Jacques & Amand; BRDR, 2:51, 420 (ASC-1, 131 & 132), the record of his second marriage, calls him Charles LANDRY, widower of Marie LANDRY of Acadia, does not give his parents' names, calls his second wife Maria BABIN, gives her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Joseph LANDRY & Pierre LANDRY; BRDR, 3:483 (ASC-4, 54), perhaps his death/burial record, calls him Carlos LANDRY, but does not give his parents' names, mention a wife, or give his age at the time of his death.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 156; Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 178; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 485; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 7, 18; De Ville, Southwest LA Families, 1785, 5.  

Landry family historian Ben Londeree believes that Arsenault is wrong about the parents of this Charles LANDRY.  Notice that they have the same names as the parents of the Charles LANDRY who came to LA in 1785.  

The only evidence linking him to the Attakapas District is the Attakapas census of 1785, & that is tenuous.  All of his children married on the river, so the Charles LANDRY in Attakapas may have been someone else, hence the question marks. 

His burial record is merely a guess because of the sloppy record keeping of the priest(s) at Ascension.  It would have been nice if the priest had at least given Charles's wife's name or his age at the time of his death. 

35.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6R), calls him Charles LANDRY, & lists him with his wife & 7 children; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 8, shows that he made the 1758-59 crossing to St.-Malo with the family of widower Jean BUGEAU, 3 of BUGEAU's children, & another single person, Jeanne, 36-year-old daughter of Jean LE BERE [LEBERT], who may have been his kinfolk; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 525-26, Family No. 592; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 62, Family No. 123, calls him Charles LANDRY, says he was born c1729 at L'Assomption, which is Pigiguit, calls his parents Charles LANDRY & Marie LEBLANC, & details his marriage, including his wife's birth year, her parents' names, & the name of her first husband; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 102-03, Family No. 189, calls him Charles LANDRY, & details his marriage; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 2-3, calls him Charles LANDRY, charpentier, age 50, on the embarkation list, Carlos LANDRY on the debarkation list, & Charles LANDRY, carpenter, age 50, on the complete listing, says he was in the 4th Family aboard Le Bon Papa with his wife & 7 children, & details his marriage, including the names of his parents--Charles LANDRY & Marie LEBLANC--& the names of his wife's parents; BRDR, 3:484 (SGA-8, 66), his death/burial record, calls him Charles LANDRY, age 84, but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife.

Note that his parents' names & place of residence in Acadia are the same as the Charles LANDRY who came to LA in 1766.  Coincidence?  Did his parents name 2 of their sons Charles, fils

Why does the burial record of his son Jean-Jacques, dated 18 Oct 1828, in Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:337 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, p.42), call him Joseph?  Was his name Charles-Joseph or Joseph-Charles?  I have found this name in no other source that mentions him.  Note that his wife's first husband was Joseph HÉBERT.

36.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6R), calls him Charles [LANDRY], & lists him with his parents & 6 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 102-03, family No. 189, his baptismal record, calls him Charles LANDRY, gives his parents' but not his godparents' names, & details his family's participation in the Leigne-les-bois settlement in Poitou during the early 1770s & its voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 2-3, calls him Charles, son [Charles LANDRY's] fils, age 8, on the embarkation list, Carlos, su [Carlos LANDRY's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Charles LANDRY, his [Charles LANDRY's] son, age 8, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 4th Family aboard Le Bon Papa with his parents & 6 siblings; BRDR, 3:516, 814 (ASM-2, 105), perhaps his marriage record, calls him Valentin LANDRY "of Chantenais, France," gives his & his wife's parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Juan RICHARD & Ambrosio HÉBERT. 

His marriage record is based on his birth at Chantenay & process of elimination.  The baptismal records of son/daughter Eteloin & daughter Marguerite Felicia, dated 8 Sep 1815 & 7 Sep 1816, in Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:336, 338 (Thib.Ch.: v.2, p.17), call him Charles Valentin.  The marriage record of daughter Célestine, dated 15 Mar 1831, in Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:336 (Thib.Ct.Hse.: Mar. v.2, #5), calls him Charles Francois.  One wonders where these middle names came from; his baptismal record, cited above, calls him simply Charles. 

37.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Charles-Caliste LANDRY; BRDR, 2:419 (ASM-3, 18), his death/burial record, calls him Calixto LANDRY, age 32 years, & gives his parents' names but mentions no wife.

Why did he not marry? 

38.  Wall of Names, 29 (pl. 7L), calls her Claire LANDRY belle mère à la femme [of Claude LE BLANC], & lists her with her daughter-in-law & her daughter-in-law's second husband; White, DGFA-1, 925, calls her Claire LANDRY, & thoroughly details her life except for a death/burial date, which probably was not recorded; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 14-15, calls her Claire LANDRY, belle-mère à la femme [of Claude LEBLANC], age 75, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Claire LANDRY, mother-in-law of the wife [of Claude LEBLANC], age 75, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 15th Family aboard La Bergère with her daughter-in-law & her daughter-in-law's second husband.

She was actually age 80 when she came to LA in 1785, so she was one of the oldest Acadians to emigrate to the colony.  Her death/burial date has not been recorded, but she probably died soon after she settled on upper Bayou Lafourche, if she survived the crossing from France.

39.  Wall of Names, 19, calls her Isabelle LANDRY; BRDR, 2:263, 422 (ASC-1, 121), her marriage record, calls her Élisabeth LANDRY, calls her husband Francois DUHAM (DUHON), gives her & his parents' names, says all parents were Acadians, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Mathieu [probably Mathurin] LANDRY [her brother] & Joseph LANDRY [her brother]; BRDR, 2:451 (ASC-1, 189b), her death/burial record, calls her Ysabel LANDRY, "age 29 years, spouse of Francisco DUHON," but does not give her parents' names. 

40.  Wall of Names, 20, calls her Élisabeth LANDRY; BRDR, 2:422, 634 (ASC-1, 127), the record of her first marriage, calls her Élisabeth LANDRY, calls her parents "Pierre [LANDRY] & Claire BABEIN, Acadians, res. at St. Gabriel," calls her husband Estevan RIVERT (RIVET), "widower of Claire FORET, Acadian, resident at St.-Gabriel at Manchac," does not give his parents' names, says the marriage took place "between 6 June & 4 July 1774", & that the witnesses to her marriage were Abraham LANDRY & Athanas LANDRY [her brother]; BRDR, 2:418, 427 (SGA-14, 4), the record of her second marriage, calls her Isabel LANDRY, widow of Esteban RIVET, calls her husband Augustin LANDRI, widower of Maria FORET, gives her & his parents' names, says both sets of parents were "of Acadia," but gives no witnesses to her marriage; BRDR, 3:487 (SGA-8, 69), her death/burial record, calls her Élizabeth LANDRY, "age 80, wid. Augustin LANDRY," but does not give her parents' names.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 157; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 434; De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 9.

If she was counted by the Spanish at St.-Gabriel in 1767 with her brother Pierre, older sister Marie, widow of Alexis GRANGER, & niece Madeleine GRANGER, why does Wall of Names list her only with brother Pierre?  Wouldn't they have come to LA together?  

Why does her first marriage record say that her parents were residents of St.-Gabriel in mid-1774 when they never came to LA, or does the record mean that she was "res. at St. Gabriel," & not her parents?  Probably the latter.

Note how far off is her age in the St.-Gabriel census of 1777.  Is this a misprint?  

41.  Wall of Names, 24, calls her Isabelle LEBLANC; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-A:572 (Opel. Ch.: v.1, p.130), her death/burial record, calls her Isabele LANDRY, widow of Mathurin RICHARD, says she died "at age 80 yrs.," but does not give her parents' names.  See also Voorhies., J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 433; De Ville, Southwest LA Families, 1777, 26.

Her estimated birth year is taken from the age found in the Spanish report of 1767, not the Opelousas census of 1777 or her burial record. 

42.  Wall of Names, 20, calls her Élisabeth LANDRY; BRDR, 2:422, 539 (ASC-1, 124), her marriage record, calls her Élisabeth LANDRY, calls her husband Pierre-Jacques MELANSON, gives her & his parents' names, says her parents were "of St. Gabriel at Manchac" & his "of St. James," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Juan MELANÇON & Pierre LANDRY; BRDR, 3:487 (SJA-4, 36), her death/burial record, calls her Élizabeth LANDRY, "age about 60 yrs., wife of Jacques MELANSON," but does not give her parents' names.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 156; Voorhies, Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 434.

43.  Wall of Names, 20, calls her Élisabeth LANDRY 2, & lists her singly. 

I have found her in no other source, unless she was the Isabelle LANDRY "of France, a widow," who died at Attakapas, age 53, in Dec 1787?  See the burial record, dated 22 Dec 1787, in Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:476 (SM Ch.: v.4, #19).  Sadly, the priest failed to give not only her parents' names but her dead husband's name as well. 

The Élisabeth/Isabelle LANDRY who married Étienne RIVET at Ascension in Jun  or Jul 1774 & Augustin LANDRY at St.-Gabriel in Aug 1786 was born in c1734, the same year as the mysterious Élisabeth/Isabelle, but probably at Minas, not France. 

44.  Wall of Names, 20, calls him Étienne LANDRY; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2525, calls him Étienne LANDRY, says he was born in 1734, probablement son of Pierre LANDRY & Anne-Marie DOUCET "de Pisiguit," says he married Marie-Josèphe LANDRY in 1734 but gives no place of marriage nor her parents' names, says he occupied lot number 84 on the west side of the Mississippi at St.-Jacques in 1769, this his sister-in-law Isabelle LANDRY lived with him & his family, & lists his children as Anastasie, born in 1757, Jean-Baptiste in 1767, Ignace in 1769,  Valentin in 1771, Jean-Louis in 1772, Marie in 1773, & Joseph-Alexandre in 1775; BRDR, 2:423 (ASC-4, 4, #9), his death/burial record, calls him Estevan LANDRY, age 57 years, but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife.  See also Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 175. 

Arsenault has him married only to Marie-Josèphe LANDRY.  The note for daughter Anastasie, above, explains why I have him married to 2 women.

And there is this complication:  Wall of Names, 20, lists an Agnès with the family of Étienne LANDRY & Marie-Josèphe LANDRY when they reached LA.  I have found no other record relating to this family either in MD or in LA that refers to a child named Agnès.  Arsenault, cited above, lists an Ignace, born in 1769, for Étienne LANDRY & Marie-Josèphe LANDRY, as does the Cabanocé census of 1769, which says "d"[ daughter] Ygnace was 3 months old.  The census was taken in Sep, so she would have been born in Jun 1769.  Is this Agnès?  The census at Ascension in 1770 calls Ygnace, who is only 1, a son.  Did the researchers at the Acadian Memorial, seeing Ygnace listed as a daughter in the 1769 census, assume that the child's name was AgnèsAgnès is a feminine name, & Ignace is masculine.  An Ignace LANDRY, age 6, was buried at Ascension on 11 Oct 1774.  His parents were ... Stefan, that is Étienne, LANDRY & Marie LANDRY.  See BRDR, 2:427 (ASC-1, 174f).  This child, then, most likely was a son named Ignace, as Arsenault insists, not a daughter named Agnès, born at Cabanocé in c1769.  Since his family reached LA in Sep 1766, Ignace should not be listed at all in Wall of Names.

Did Étienne live on upper Bayou Lafourche, or did only his sons settle there? 

45.  Wall of Names, 19, calls him Étienne LANDRY; BRDR, 2:423, 703 (ASC-1, 133), his marriage record, calls him Étiene LANDRY, gives his & his wife's parents' names, says his parents were Acadians, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Vincent LANDRY & Pierre LEBLANC. 

46.  Wall of Names, 20, calls him Étienne LANDRY 2, & lists him singly. 

I have found him in no other source.

47.  Wall of Names, 20, calls him Fabien LANDRY.

Did he marry?

48.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her Félicité LANDRY; Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 171, & Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 425, the record of her first marriage, calls her Magdelaine/Magdeleine LE BLANC, & calls her husband Charles MELANÇO/MELENCON; BRDR, 2:43, 423 (ASC-2, 15), the record of her second marriage, calls her Félicité LANDRY, widow of Carlos MELANÇON, does not give her or her husband's parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Isaac LEBLANC, Grégoire LEBLANC, Olivier TERRIO, & Firmin LANDRY; BRDR, 3:489 (SJA-4, 29), her death/burial record, calls her Félicité LANDRY, "age 55 yrs., wife of Bonaventure BABIN," but does not give her parents' names.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 156.

Arsenault, Généalogie, 2555, the profile for her first husband in the LA section, gets her name right but says she & Charles were married at Ascension.  Madeleine LEBLANC was his mother's name!  Why the original record lists his mother's name in place of his wife's name is anyone's guess. 

Was her second husband the Charles BABIN, son of Antoine BABIN & Catherine LANDRY, who came to LA with his widowed mother & siblings in Feb 1768?  There is no Bonaventure BABIN on the Acadian Memorial's Wall of Names.  Bonaventure BABIN died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in May 1815, age 65, which gives him an estimated birth year of c1750, the same one for Charles, son of Antoine BABIN.  See BRDR, 3:48 (SGA-8, 72).  Unfortunately, the priests at Ascension and St. Gabriel never bothered to record Bonaventure's parents' names in his marriage record, his children's baptismal & death records, or his burial record, so his link to Charles is pure speculation based on a similar estimated birth year. 

49.  Wall of Names, 20 (pl. 4L), calls him Firmin LANDRY, & lists him with children Joseph, Saturin, Hélène, & Marie-Madeleine, but no wife; Arsenault, Généalogie, 1404, the Pigiguit section, & 2522, the LA section, call him Firmin LANDRY, says he was born in c1725 & c1728, was sans doute & then probablement son of Pierre LANDRY & Marguerite FOREST "de Pisiguit, Acadie," says he married Élizabeth-Françoise THIBODEAUX in c1752 but gives no place of marriage nor her parents' names, that he married Théotiste THIBODEAUX in c1770 but gives no place of marriage nor her parents' names, says he was deported to MD, settled at Attakapas in LA, & lists his children, by his first wife, as Joseph, born in 1753, Saturin in 1755, Hélène in 1757, & Marie-Madeleine in 1759, &, by his second wife, Françoise, born in 1770, Hubert in 1773, Hélène in 1774, Rosalie in 1776, Valentin in 1778, Marie in 1780, Alexandre in 1782, Agnès in 1784, & Marguerite in 1789, but gives no birthplaces; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-B:428 (SM Ch.: v.4, #231), his death/burial record, calls him Firmin LANDRY of Acadia, son of Alexandre [LANDRY] & ____, says he "died suddenly ... at age 'sesenta y dies y seis anos' (literally 60 and 16 years) 76 years, but does not mention a wife or wives.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 156. 

White, DGFA-1, 950-51, lists no Firmin as a child of Pierre LANDRY & Marguerite FOREST in Acadia.  Firmin's burial record reveals his father's name, but not his mother's.  Following this burial record, which rejects Arsenault's choice for Firmin's parents' names, a perusal of White shows that Alexandre, son of Germain LANDRY & Marie MELANSON, who married Marguerite, daughter of Martin BLANCHARD & Marguerite GUILBEAU, in c1723 is a good fit for Firmin's parents.  See White, p. 930.  This would make Firmin a double first cousin of Pierre dit Pierrot à Chaques, who was 6 or 7 years older than Firmin; who, like Firmin, was at Oxford, MD, in Jul 1763; &, like Firmin, came to LA in 1766.  This also would make Firmin a nephew of the Jean-Baptiste LANDRY who was at Oxford in Jul 1763 & came to LA in 1767. 

If Firmin & his children reached LA in Sep 1766, why were they not in the Cabanocé census of Sep 1769?  The logic behind his Sep 1766 arrival date is that the MD exiles who reached LA in 1767 & 1768 were well-documented by the Spanish, but the 1766 arrivals were not.  He & his children do not appear on any of the 1767 & 1768 lists, &, besides, those Acadians were sent to St.-Gabriel & San-Luìs de Natchez, respectively, not to Cabanocé, where the 1766 exiles congregated.  Also, many of the LANDRYs who came to LA from MD in 1766 had been at Oxford, MD, in Jul 1763, as had Firmin.  Most likely they missed the Sep 1769 census because they had already moved on to the Attakapas District.  Evidently the Spanish did not take a census at Attakapas between Apr 1766 & 1771 (if a census was taken between those dates, it has not survived). 

West, Atlas of LA Surnames, 92, ignoring Arsenault, says Firmin married his second wife, Théotiste, in 1776.  If, as Wall of Names indicates, Firmin was a widower when he came to LA, then Arsenault's marriage date of c1770 makes sense in light of the Attakapas censuses of 1771 & 1774, which show Firmin with a wife. 

A clue to the identity of his second wife's parents is in daughter Marie's baptismal record, dated 23 Apr 1780, in Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:479 (SM Ch.: v.3, #141), which calls the girls godmother Marie-Louise THIBODO, "aunt of the baptized."  Marie-Louise's parents were Charles THIBODEAUX & Brigitte BREAUX.  Brigitte came to LA from Halifax in Feb 1765, a widow, with Marie-Louise, her youngest child, & two other children & followed the BROUSSARDs to Bayou Teche.  Théotiste arrived soon afterward as a young widow, went to Cabanocé/St.-Jacques with her in-laws, & married Firmin there.  She would not have reunited with her mother at Attakapas when she & Firmin moved there in c1770--Brigitte BREAUX was one of the dozens of victims of the Teche valley epidemic of 1765. 

The baptismal record of daughter Françoise, dated 24 Apr 1771, in BRDR, 2:425-25 (PCP-2, pt. 2, 109a; PCP-4, 70), provides the approximate date of the family's arrival in the Attakapas District.  The Pointe Coupée priest who recorded the girl's baptism noted that she was born on 22 Oct 1770 & that her baptism took place "at Attakappas."  The priest also noted that the girl's mother was ... Théotiste THIBODOT ... so Firmin married his second wife in c1769 or 1770.  Firmin was not the first LANDRY to go to the western prairies, but he was the first male LANDRY to go there & remain.  He essentially established the western branch of the LANDRY family in LA. 

50.  Wall of Names, 20, calls him Firmin LANDRY; BRDR, 2:424, 668 (ASC-1, 145 & 146), his marriage record, calls him Firmin LANDRY, calls his wife Francisca Sally SCANTEIN, gives his & her parents' names, says her parents were "of New England," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Joseph LANDRY & Aman BRAUD.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 157. 

51.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Firmin LANDRY; BRDR, 2:56, 424 (ASC-2, 18), the record of his first marriage, calls him Firmin LANDRY, gives his & his wife's parents' names, calls her father Sephrim [BABIN], & says the witnesses to his marriage were Anselme LEBLANC, Joseph BABIN, & Joseph LEBLANC; BRDR, 2:424, 477 (ASM-2, 15), the record of his second marriage, calls him Firmin LANDRY, widower of Victoria BABIN, gives his & his wife's parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Grégoire LEBLANC & Jacques BABIN.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 156.

His second wife came to LA from France in 1785.  Although they married at Assumption, they settled at Ascension on the river, not on upper Bayou Lafourche. 

52.  Wall of Names, 19, calls him Firmin LANDRY; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2526, says he was born in 1735; BRDR, 2:49, 424 (ASC-1, 126), the record of his second marriage, calls him Firmin LANDRY, "widower of Marie LEBLANC, a native of Acadia, res. St. Gabriel," calls his wife Louise BABIN, does not give his but gives her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Pierre LANDRY, Maturin BENOIT, & Ignatius BABEIN; BRDR, 2:351, 424 (SGA-14, 17), the record of his third marriage, calls him Firmin LANDRY, widower, calls his wife Maria HAMILTON, widow, gives his & her parents' names but not his previous wives' names or her first husband's name, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Miguel GAREIDEL, Joseph LEBLANC, & Carlos BRAUX; BRDR, 2:424 (SGA-8, 17, #83), probably his death/burial record, calls him Fermin LANDRY, but does not give his parents' names, mention a wife, or give his age at the time of his death.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 431; De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 4.

Ben Londeree, on his website <landrygenealogy.com> calls him Firmin-Damase, but I have found that name nowhere else.  His youngest son, by his third wife, born posthumously in Nov 1792, bore the name.  Was the boy given his father's full name? 

His third wife's middle name is from the baptismal record of granddaughter Marie Élisabeth LANDRY, dated 22 May 1825, in BRDR, 4:329 (SGA-6, 51).

53.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6R), calls him Firmin [LANDRY], & lists him with his parents & 6 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 525-26, Family No. 592, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Firmin-Pancrace LANDRY, gives his parents' names, says his godparents were André TEMPLÉ & Anne BOUDROT, & says his family resided at St.-Servan from 1759-72; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 2-3, calls him Fermin, son [Charles LANDRY's] fils, marin, age 22, on the embarkation list, Fermin, su [Carlos LANDRY's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Firmin LANDRY, his [Charles LANDRY's] son, sailor, age 22, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 4th Family aboard Le Bon Papa with his parents & 6 siblings; BRDR, 2:52, 424 (SGA-14, 15), his marriage record, calls him Firmin Paneracio LANDRY, gives his & his wife's parents' names, calls his mother Mariana BOUDREAU, says his parents were "of St. Malo, France," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Carlos LANDRY [probably his brother], Janvier LONGUÉPÉE, & Pablo BABIN; BRDR, 3:490 (SGA-8, 64), probably his death/burial record, calls him Firmin LANDRY, age 50, but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife. 

He & his wife may have been that rare Acadian couple who had no children. 

54.  Wall of Names, 20, calls him François LANDRY 2, & lists him singly; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2522-23, calls him François LANDRY, says he was born in 1741, probablement son of François [LANDRY] & Dorothée BOURG of Pisiguit, says he married Rosalie DUGAS, born in 1750, in c1768 but gives no place of marriage, that in 1769 he occupied lot number 116 on the east bank of the Mississippi at St.-Jacques, & lists his children as Marguerite, born in 1770, Marie-Rose in 1773, Édouard in 1775, & Geneviève in 1778 but gives no birthplaces.  See also Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 177; De Ville, St. James Census, 1777, 13. 

It is easy to confuse this François LANDRY with 2 other François LANDRYs who also lived at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques in the 1760s & 1770s.

55.  Wall of Names, 19, calls him François LANDRY, & lists him with brother Amand & sister Anne; Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 172, his marriage record, calls him François LANDRY, & calls his wife Marie-Rose LEBLANC; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 425, also his marriage record, calls him François LANDRIE, & calls his wife Marie-Rozalie LE BLANC; BRDR, 2:425 (SJA-1, 63), perhaps his death/burial record, calls him François LANDRY, "First Sergeant of Militia," but does not give his parents' names, mention a wife, or give his age at the time of his death.   See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 156.

This profile is pure guess work.  He is easily confused with 2 other François LANDRYs who lived at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques at the same time & who were probably about the same age.

56.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6R), calls him François [LANDRY], & lists him with his parents & 6 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 102-03, Family No. 189, his baptismal record, calls him François-Marie LANDRY, gives his parents' but not his godparents' names, & details his family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s before he was born, & their voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 2-3, calls him François, son [Charles LANDRY's] fils, age 6, on the embarkation list, Francisco, su [Carlos LANDRY's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & François LANDRY, his [Charles LANDRY's] son, age 6, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 4th Family aboard Le Bon Papa with his parents & 6 siblings; BRDR, 2:44, 425 (ASM-2, 78), the record of his first marriage, calls him François LANDRY of Nantes, France, calls his wife Constancia BABIN, widow of Eusèbe LANDRY, gives his & her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Pierre DUPLESIS & Urbin BRAUX; BRDR, 5(rev.):43, 353 (SGA-14, 256), the record of his second marriage, calls him François LANDRY, "bn. in Nantes, France," gives his & his wife's parents' names, says all parents were deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Charles POUPARD, Alexcis BRASSET, Joacin LEBLANC, & Francois GOMEZ; BRDR, 7:295 (SGA-8, 323), his death/burial record, calls him François LANDRY, "age 72 years, native of France," but does not give any parents' names or mention a wife.   

What brought him back to the river?  He was "only" 70 years old when he died & one of the last of the Acadian immigrants in LA to join our ancestors. 

57.  Wall of Names, 39 (pl. 10L), calls him François LANDRY, & lists him with 2 grandchildren & a nephew but no wife; White, DGFA-1, 938, calls him François LANDRY, gives his parents' names, his birth/baptismal date & birthplace, followed here, says his godparents were François BROUSSARD & Anne BOURGEOIS, wife of François GIROUARD, details his 3 marriages, including all of his wives' parents' & previous husbands' names, says he shared "disp 2-3 aff" with his third wife, & details his sojourn in France; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 103, Family No. 190, calls him Francois LANDRY, says he was born in 1716 "in the Parish of Saint-Charles in Acadie," which was Grand-Pré, gives his parents' names, says the name of his first wife is unknown, details his other 2 marriages, says his third wife was born c1723, gives her parents' & first husband's names, & details his & his second wife's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 63, Family No. 124, a history of his son Germain's family, calls him François LANDRY, says his wife was "deceased" Marie BABIN, that son Germain was born c1740 "in the parish of L'Assomption in Acadie," which was Pigiguit, that Germain married Cécille LA GARENNE, daughter of "deceased" Jean-Baptiste LA GARENNE & Anne POITIER, 30 Jul 1767 at Ste.-Trinité, Cherbourg, Manche, that Cécille was born c1748 "in the parish of St. Pierre on Île St.-Jean, that granddaughter Anne-Apoline LANDRY was baptized 30 Oct 1774 at Archigny, Vienne, the goddaughter of Pierre AMIRAULT & godmother not named, & details German & his family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 68-69, calls him François LANDRY, charpentier, age 60, on the embarkation list, Francisco LANDRY, on the debarkation list, & François LANDRY, carpenter, age 60, on the complete listing, says he was in the 12th Family aboard L'Amitié with 2 grandchildren & a nephew but no wife, says the grandchildren with whom he traveled were a daughter & a son of his son Germain LANDRY, husband of Cécille LAGARENNE, details his son's marriage, says François's wife was Marie BABEIN, that granddaughter Bonne-Marie-Adélaïde was born 27 Jul 1769 but gives no birthplace, that grandson Jean-Jacques-Frédéric was born 26 Jul 1770 but gives no birthplace, & lists the implements the Spanish gave him after he reached LA; BRDR, 2:425 (ASC-4, 24), his death/burial record, calls him Francisco LANDRY, age 83 years, widower, but does not give his parents' or his wives' names.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1777-98, 24, 155.

I wish to thank Ben Londeree, LANDRY family historian, for straightening me out on this fellow.

58.  Wall of Names, 20, calls him François LANDRY; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2521, 2527, calls him Sébastien LANDRY & François-Sébastien LANDRY, says he was born in c1738, calls his parents Alexandre LANDRY & his second wife Rose LEBLANC of Pigiguit, calls him widower of Marguerite LEBLANC but gives no date or place for this marriage, details his second marriage, including his wife's parents' names & where they lived in France, & lists his children as, by his first marriage, Isabelle, born c1770, Luc-Alexandrein c1772, & Marguerite in 1777, but gives no birth places, & gives no children by the second marriage; BRDR, 2:325, 425 (ASC-2, 56), the record of his second marriage, calls him Francisco LANDRY, widow of Marguerita LEBLANC, calls his wife Maria Rosa GIROIRD, does not give his but gives her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Pierre LANDRY & Juan Pedro HEVER [HÉBERT]; BRDR, 3:490 (ASC-4, 84), his death/burial record, calls him François LANDRY, "age 70 yrs., nat. Acadia, res. Assumption, spouse Marie Rose GIROIR," but does not give his parents' names.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late-Eighteenth Century Louisianians, 431; De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 4; 23; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 23, 67, 105, 113, 155.

Concerning his parents, White, DGFA-1, 933, lists only 1 wife for Alexandre LANDRY, Anne FLAN.  Only Arsenault links François to Alexandre LANDRY & a second wife, Rose LEBLANC.  Wood, Acadians in Maryland, 141, gives his parents as Alexandre LANDRY & Anne FLAN. 

The age given for him in the St.-Gabriel census of 1777 gives us a birth year that agrees with Arsenault, but the Spanish report of 1767 & the Ascension census of 1788, followed here, disagree. 

It is easy to confuse this François LANDRY, born in c1741, with François LANDRY, fils, also born in c1741, son of probably François LANDRY, père, & Dorothée BOURG, & I may have done so in some of the Lafourche censuses.  I need a LANDRY family historian to straighten me out here.

59.  Wall of Names, 17, calls her Geneviève LANDRY, & lists her with Joseph GODIN dit Lincour & daughter Rosalie as if they were married before coming to LA. 

For a problem with this scenario, see the footnote accompanying the profile of Joseph GODIN dit Bellefontaine dit Lincour.

60.  Wall of Names, 19, calls her Geneviève LANDRY; BRDR, 1b:18, 102 (PCP-3, 259; PCP-4, 29), her marriage record, calls her Geneviève LANDRY, native of Acadia, calls her husband Jean-Baptiste BELLOT, "native of Pavie, Italy, Sergeant of Spanish troops," gives her & his parents' names, says his father was deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Anise RIVET, Cécille RIVET, & Michel RIVET [her brother-in-law].  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 153.  

Her marriage record was recorded at Pointe Coupée because Fort San Luìs de Natchez did not have a priest of its own.  The couple, in fact, probably had to go downriver to be married at Pointe Coupée.  Her father also was deceased at the time of the wedding.  The name Jean-Baptiste BELLOT is a French version of his true name, Juan Baptista BELOTI.  See Brasseaux, ed., Quest for the Promised Land, 153. 

61.  Wall of Names, 30 (pl. 7R), calls her Geneviève LANDRY soeur [of Marie-Joseph LANDRY], & lists her with her sister & her sister's "charge" Francois-Jullien ____; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 20-21, calls her Geneviève LANDRY, soeur [of Marie-Joseph LANDRY] age 34, on the embarkation list, Geneviève LANDRY, on the debarkation list, & Geneviève LANDRY, sister [of Marie-Joseph LANDRY], age 34, on the complete listing, says she was in the 38th Family aboard La Bergère with her sister & her sister's "charge," gives her parents' names, their marriage date but not the place of marriage, lists the implements the Spanish gave to her & her sister after they reached LA, & details her marriage in LA, says she was born c1748 but actually 1751 based on the ship's passenger list, & does not give the names of her or her husband's parents or place of marriage; BRDR, 2:426, 646 (ASM-2, 11), her marriage record, calls her Genoveva LANDRY, gives her & her husband's parents' names as well as the name of his first wife, but gives no witnesses to her marriage; NOAR, 6:167 (SLC, F4, 34), her death/burial record, calls her Genoveva LANDRY, "native of Acadia in Canada, 55 yrs., widow of Fransisco ROMAGOSA," says she died at Charity Hospital, but does not give her parents' names. 

62.  Wall of Names, 20, calls her Geneviève LANDRY, & lists her singly.

I have found her in no other source.

63.  Wall of Names, 20, calls her Hélène LANDRY; BRDR, 2:160, 427 (PCP-2, pt. 2, 116; PCP-2, 76), her marriage record, calls her Hélène LANDRY of Acadia, gives her & her husband's parents' names, says "all parties living at Attakapas, " says her mother & his parents were deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Firmin LANDRY [her father] & Baptiste LABOVE. 

Although a church parish existed at Attakapas since 1765, its remote location meant that sometimes the parish had no priest.  Opelousas, north of Attakapas, did not get its own church until 1776, so in the early 1770s priests from Pointe Coupée would serve as missionaries to the remote prairie settlements.  How else does one explain the number of marriages of Attakapas & Opelousas couples recorded at Pointe Coupée at that time? 

64.  Wall of Names, 20, calls him Hyacinthe LANDRY; BRDR, 2:427 (SGA-8, 17, #87), his death/burial record, calls him Hyasin LANDRY, but does not give parents' names, mention a wife, or give his age at the time of his death.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 157; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 431; De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 6.

65.  Wall of Names, 38 (pl. 10L), calls him Isaac-Abraham LANDRY, frere [of Aimable LANDRY], & lists him with 3 siblings, with the notation:  suplement a la liste des Acadiens embarques dans le navire Le St. Remy pour la Nouvelle Orleans [additional list of Acadians embarked on the ship Le St.-Rémi bound for New Orleans]; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 271, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Abraham-Isaac LANDRY, & gives her parents' names but not his godparents' names; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 65-66, Family No. 130, calls him Abraham-Isaac [LANDRY], gives his parents' names, & details his family's participation in Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 107, Family No. 198, calls him Abraham-Isaac [LANDRY], give
