The lineage for this branch is Jehan, Claude, Germain, Claude, Paul, Pierre, Joseph, Firmin, Lambert.

The first five generations lived in Acadia with the fifth generation (Paul) moving to Kamouraska, Quebec on the St-Lawrence sometime between 1740 and 1792. Generations 6 through 9 (Lambert) remained in the Kamouraska area of the Province of Québec.

Journey of the Fifth Generation. Paul, of the 5th generation, was born around 1716 in the St Charles parish of Grand Pré, Acadia where he was raised. In 1740, he married Anne Hébert in St Charles and later they moved to the more prosperous settlement of Beaubassin. This move may have been part of a plan that he, his brother Joseph and their cousin, Joseph [RIN1404] coordinated. With the burning of Beaubassin in 1750 and the worsening conflicts with the English, Paul decided to leave his homeland and migrate with his wife and his then seven children to Rivière Ouelle on the Saint Lawrence River sometime before 1759.

Generations 6, 7, and 8 remained in the Kamouraska area while Generation 9 (Lambert) moved to Bromptonville, QC where his five children and their families continued.


The following set of photos focus on Lambert's children and descendants, specifically two of his sons, Jules and George Henri and some of their children.
