About Vincent Brault
Biography According to Stephen White, Vincent Breau was born around 1631 and his origins are unknown. Another theory is that he was part of the Brault family who were on Governor d'Aulnay's seigneury in La Chausée France. Around 1661, we find Vincent in Acadia, when he married Marie Bourg, daughter of Antoine Bourg and Antoinette Landry. Between around 1662 and 1685, the couple had 12 children: Marie (dit Vincelotte), Antoine, Marguerite, Pierre, son unknown, Anne, François, Jean, Marie, Jeanne, René, and Elisabeth. At the time of the first Acadian Census in 1671, the family was living in Port-Royal, Acadia (Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, Canada). Forty year old Vincent and 26 year old Marie were living with their four children. Four arpents of their land was cultivated and they had 9 cattle and 7 sheep. Their homestead was situated on the north bank of the Dauphin (Annapolis River) to the east of the Belleisle Marsh. Sadly, Vincent died in his 50s sometime before 1686, leaving his widow to care for the children aged 2 months to 22 years.

On page 20 of "A Breaux Family History" Gerald P. Breaux wrote: "Vincent Brault was born in 1631 in France and was from LaChaussee, region of Loudun, department of Vienne. He arrived in Acadia in the year 1652, as a single man approximately 21 years old. Vincent was destined to become the 'Adam' of the entire Acadian line of descent bearing his name and it's later derivatives. All family branches - regardless of name spelling - converge upon this one man, since he was the only male member of the family to settle in Acadia and produce descendants.
At about age 30, Vincent Brault married a 16-year old native Acadian girl, Marie Bourg, and raised a family of 11 children, consisting of 5 boys and 6 girls....Marie was the eldest daughter of Antoine Bourg and Antoinette Landry, who were among the earliest settlers, arriving in Acadia as newly-weds in 1636. They also originated from the same place in France as Vincent Brault.... Thus, it appears that these early settlers were closely related and associated even before their arrival in Acadia.
The family of Vincent Brault and Marie Bourg was raised in Port Royal, Acadia. The spelling of the name was apparently modified to Brot - perhaps to signify a new beginning in a new land.This new land presented an environment that was distinctly different from Vincent's homeland in France." -- Norma (Aubey) Lewis
