  • Notes 
    • Jean Gaudet was born Abt. 1575 in Martaize, Vienne, France1, and died 1672 in Port Royal, Acadia2. He married (2) Nicole Colleson 1628 in France3, daughter of Nicolas Colleson and Genevieve Petit.
      Notes for Jean Gaudet:
      ACADIAN DESCENDANTS, Vol I, pg 18. Arrived in Port Royal, Acadia, in 1636 from Martaise, France. Settled at Port Royal.
      JEAN GAUDET married twice. Godbout states that he had four children: Francoise, Denis, Marie and Jean, the first three of whom became ancestors of ours. He reasoned that Francoise and Denis were born of Jean's first wife (name unknown); that Marie and Jean were born of Nicole COLLESON, his second wife; that the first three were born in France; and that Jean came to Acadia after 1633 with his second wife. GODBOUT considered that COLLESON was a French name rather than traceable to the Scotch settlers who accompanied Sir William ALEXANDER, as has been suggested.

      ARSENAULT states that Jean GAUDET probably came to Acadia after 1636, having married Nicole COLLESON "en deuxieme noces" about 1628. Jean is listed in the 1671 census as a 96-year-old farmer (laboureur) living in Port Royal with his 64-year-old wife Nicole COLLESON. Still living with them was their 18-year-old son Jean. They had six head of cattle, three sheep, and three acres of land under cultivation.

      MASSIGNON identified GAUDET as a name found in Martaize among tenants of d'AULNAY's seigniory. She also noted that in 1671 Jean GAUDET had 22 grand- children and 10 great-grandchildren, thus becoming the ancestor of one tenth of the Acadian population.
