About Simon Bourg
Generation No. 1
NICOLAS1 GRANDJEHAN (Bourgeois) was born in La Ferte-Gaucher, France. He was the father of MARGUERITE (1) BOURGEOIS'S Son Jacques Bourgeois. She was born in France.
More About MARGUERITE (1) BOURGEOIS:
Unwed Mother ?? - Jacques & Marie were the unwed son & daughter of Marie Bourgeois who worked for the apparent father Nicolas Grandjehan. It was the custom of the day that if the employer was responsible for fathering the child or children, he was to take responsibility for the children and have them bare his name. There is no conclusive proof but from the records it would appear this is what happened.
There are two wonderful books by Mrs. Jeanine (nee Bourgeois) Tenove of Calgary and another by Paul-Pierre Bourgeois of Grande Dique, New Brunswick, they differ somewhat on the origin of Jacques Bourgeois, however, I feel the research done by Paul-Pierre Bourgeois is very compelling and it is he that feels the origin of Jacques and Marie are as stated above. However, as I said, " there is no absolute proof " and the origin by Mrs. (nee Bourgeois) Tenove is a much more heart warming version and her research is equal to the task as well. You make the choice.
"SPECIAL NOTE OF THANKS" TO PAUL-PIERRE BOURGEOIS & JEANINE (nee Bourgeois) TENVOE.
Both of these two marvelous researchers and family Bourgeois members deserve a huge pat on the back for all the work and effort they have put into publishing these two books. "CANADA MY HOME, MY NATIVE LAND" BY Jeanine Bourgeois Tenove a wonderful journey from Acadia to Alberta & " THE BOURGEOIS OF ACADIA" BY Paul-Pierre Bourgeois. Much to their credit and hard work we are taken into the journey of our founding family members in both English and French. Simply a wonderful job by both of them.
Thank You. Jack (nee Bourgeois) Scott.
