Jean Francois Broussard traveled to the port city of La Rochelle, France from his home in Poiters, France at the age of 17 in 1671. He boarded the vessel L'Oranger bound for Port Royal, Nova Scotia where he resided for many years. Jean Francois Broussard is listed in the census of Port Royal in the years 1678, 1686, & 1714. Jean Francois Broussard married Catherine (Richard) Broussard and together they became the primary ancestors of the Broussard family line of Louisiana and Texas. The son of Jean Francois and Catherine Broussard, Joseph Beausoleli Broussard, helped lead the Acadians from Canada to Poste des Attakapas (St. Martinville Louisiana). Valcin Broussard donated the land for Broussard, Louisiana in 1870.
Jean Francois Broussard: born in France, circa-1654. He came from France to Port Royal, Acadia (Nova Scotia) in 1671. He was one of fifty colonists who arrived on the Ship "L" Oranger" from La Rochelle, France. He was married to Catherine Richard in Port Royal in 1680. They had six sons and four daughters. Their oldest son was Pierre Broussard.
"It would ... appear that Francois Broussard's mother could have been a sister of either Francoise Gaudet or Daniel Le Blanc, more likely of the former, because it is already known that there were other members of the Gaudet family in Acadia." S.A.White

According to the 1666 census of Quebec, Urbain Brossard is not the father of Jean Francois. The following was recorded for the Montreal area of the Quebec (New France) colony. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Urbain brossard .............................32 maçon habitant Urbaine hodiau ..............................20 sa femme Jeanne brossard ..............................3 fille et Jean brossard .......................13 mois fils

3 Feb 1672: Francois Broussard purchased clothing belonging to the late René Bonnin.

1678: At the time of the census of Port-Royal, he was already married, but still without children. Later on, he collaborated with Pierre Thibodeau in the colonization of Chipoudy (Hopewell Hill, New Brunswick), but he did not go to settle there himself.

Aug 1695 (old style): Francois Broussard took the oath of allegiance to the King of England at Port-Royal; he made his mark on the document.

He arrived in Acadia from France in 1671, aboard L'Oranger which sailed from La Rochelle. He was among fifty colonists recruited by Louis XIV's Finance Minister, Jean Baptiste Colbert, to help populate Acadia.

Written on July 1 2003 by Famille Beausoleil Association:

Francois Broussard was born in 1653 in Port Royal, Acadia. He died on December 31, 1716 in Port Royal, Acadia. Francois's parents are an enigma; however, research over the past few years has produced a likely prospect on the identity of his mother; at the marriage of Charles Broussard to Madelaine LeBlanc, Consanguinity was required due to relationship between the two. Consanguinity was granted for the marriage of these two "Third Cousins". In the study of the ways that a third cousin relationship could have existed between Charles and Madelaine, Stephen White arrived at two probable ways: 1.) Francois's mother was an unaccounted for daughter of a Doucet; although all known Doucet daughters can be accounted for, or 2) that Francois's mother was a daugher of Guillaume Trahan and his first wife. In this intance, Guillaume Trahan did have daughter that is unlisted on the census, and it is presumed that she died at an early age. Jeanne Trahan, the older daughter of Guillaume Trahan and his first wife had married to Jacques Bourgeois, and they raised a large family. Mr. Stephan White, the noted lawyer and Genealogist at the University of Moncton, has expressed these possibilities, and at one time was leaning heavily toward the Trahan connection; however, at this time he continues his search for other alternatives in search of a correct solution. On the speculation that Francois Broussard had arrived in Acadia aboard a ship from France, a ship named "L"Oranger", Mr. Stephan White completely discredits this theory of old wives tale, and has the Canadian Archives to support his argument. The Canadian Archives contain a record of Francois Broussard purchasing clothing from the widow of a fur trapper who had drowned while retrieving his catch from his traps; this event occurred prior to the time the "L' Oranger was supposed to have sailed from France. While it is known that the "L'Organger did sail a year later, it sailed not to Acadia, but to Santo Domingo, and the list of crew and passengers contained no one named Broussard.
