The RODRIGUE ancestors
in Québec and in Acadia
and their descendants

Where did the ancestors of the North American RODRIGUE come from? Many answers can be given to this question. sIn the course of my research, I was able to identify many different lineages, both Portuguese and Spanish. The ancestors of these lineages, which are described with more detail below, have all had descendants in Québec or in Acadia (and also elsewhere). Here are the names of these ancestors:

João Rodrigues
(Lisbon, Portugal, ca 1641 - Beauport, 14 November 1720)

Biography of João Rodrigues

NB: Most of the information concerning João Rodrigues come from an article by Constance Rodrigue-Johnson, "Nos quelques rares ancêtres portugais", Mémoires de la Société Généalogique Canadienne-Française, vol. 40, no 3, automne 1989, pp. 216-222.

Ancestor of the most important of the Rodrigue lineages, João Rodrigues was born probably in Lisbon, Portugal, circa 1641; his parents were João Rodrigues and Susana da Cruz (in the notarized acts in which he was a party, he named his parents as Jean Rodrigue and Suzanne Lacroix; it was most likely a francization of the names; the restoration of the real names is quite evident in the case of the father [Jean Rodrigue = João Rodrigues], but less in the case of the mother [Suzanne can be translated by Susana, but Lacroix can be either Cruz or da Cruz]; most likely, it is to better identify himself with his new environment that he chose to give his parents and himself French-sounding names).

João Rodrigues was a sailor. He probably arrived in New France shortly after 1665. Around 1670, he was at Cap-Rouge, because in July of that year he sold a piece of land that he owned there. For that matter, he will buy and sell four other pieces of land before his marriage in 1671. He married on 28 October 1671 in Beauport (the wedding was celebrated in Beauport, but the act is registered at Notre-Dame de Québec) with Anne Roy ou LeRoy, daughter of François Roy or LeRoy and Anne Bourdais, from the parish of St-Germain-l'Auxerrois in Paris. They had six children: Pierre-Jean, Marie-Anne, Suzanne, René, Vincent, and Jacques (my own ancestor) (for a more detailed biography of João Rodrigues, click on the link above).

  1. Pierre-Jean Rodrigue was born Beauport on 15 August 1672, and he was baptized in the Beauport chapel (act registered in Notre-Dame-de-Québec) on 21 August 1672. He most likely died young, because there is no trace of him later. He has sometimes been mistaken for Jean Rodrigue de Fonds (see further).

  2. Marie-Anne Rodrigue was born in Beauport on 7 August 1673, and was baptized there on the 16th. She was married in Québec on 18 February 1692 with Jean Moreau, son of Jean Moreau and Catherine Leroux. They had 10 children: Nicolas, Gabrielle-Louise, Jean-François, Marie-Jeanne, Ignace-François, Marie, Louis, Pierre-Joseph, Catherine, and Pierre.

  3. Suzanne Rodrigue was born around 1675. She was married in Québec on 26 octobre 1699 with Vincent Guillot, son of Vincent Guillot and Jeanne Sicard. They had 5 children: Vincent, Jean-Baptiste, Augustin, Jacques-Philippe, and René-Marie. Suzanne died in Beauport on 9 June 1711 (interred on the 10th), and Vincent remarried in Québec on 25 November 1711 with Marie Prévost; then, after Marie died on 22 July 1717, he remarried again in L'Ange-Gardien 3 November 1717, with Charlotte Godin.

  4. René Rodrigue was born on 28 juillet 1678 in village Saint-Michel in Beauport, and he was baptized in Beauport the day after. Ancestor of the most important branch of Rodrigue descended from João Rodrigues, he married in Beauport on 22 November 1703 with Élisabeth Dauphin, daughter of René Dauphin and Suzanne Gignard. They had 6 children: René-Joseph, Marie, Geneviève, Jean (who died at the age of nine months), Jean (the second of that name), and Louis.

    Among the descendants of René and Élisabeth who bear the surname Rodrigue, the majority, descended from Jean (married to Dorothée Fougère in 1731 in Beauport, and then to Marie Boulet in 1759 in Saint-Joseph-de-Beauce), settled in Beauce; from there, they migrated to the Eastern Townships, Montréal and New England (mainly Maine and New Hampshire). It should also be noted that one the Jean's sons, Jeran-Baptiste, born in Beauport in 1736, emigrated to Louisiana where he enrolled in the militia around 1760. He married twice there, and he had a total of more than twenty children. His descendants are still numerous in Louisiana and in other areas of the United States.

    For his part, René's youngest son, Louis, settled in the region of Lanoraie; he married there first in 1740 with Ursule Trottet dit Saint-Jean, and then in 1769 with Agathe Chapdelaine dit Larivière.

    I have not yet identified any descendant of the eldest of René's sons, René-Joseph, who married in Beauport in 1731 with Marguerite Pepin.

    It can be noted that the four Rodrigue mentioned in the Personalities page, namely the former President of the Confédération des Syndicats Nationaux (CSN; in English: Confederation of National Trade Unions, CNTU), Norbert Rodrigue; the singer-author-composer Jacques Michel (Rodrigue); the Louisiana artist George Rodrigue; and sister Denise Rodrigue, are all descended from René Rodrigue.

    René died on 22 March 1715 in Beauport (interred on the 23rd); his widow remarried with Ignace Lépinay in 1715.

  5. Vincent Rodrigue was born on 9 August 1681 in village Saint-Michel in Beauport, and baptized the day after in Beauport. He married Marie-Angélique Giroux in Beauport on 7 January 1707. They had eleven children: Madeleine-Angélique, Vincent, Marie-Thérèse, Marguerite, Louis, Barthélémi, Geneviève-Louise, Marie-Madeleine, Marie-Françoise, Ignace and Pierre.

    Most of the descendants of Vincent and Marie-Angélique settled in the region of Beauport, then on Beaupré's heights and, finally, in the Saguenay / Lac-Saint-Jean region, thus being part of an important pattern of occupation of Québec's territory. However, we should look at the journey of their next to last son, Ignace. Married in Beauport in 1748 with Madeleine Lépinay (daughter of Ignace Lépinay and Élisabeth Dauphin, the widow of Ignace's deceased uncle René), he had two children in this town; he then settled temporarily in Lanoraie, where two other children were born, in 1757 and 1759; we then find him in Lavaltrie, where a son was born in 1760; finally, he seems to have settled definitively in Sainte-Geneviève-de-Berthier, where his last five children were born between 1762 and 1768. Moreover, one of Ignace's sons, Louis, settled in Les Cèdres (Saint-Joseph-de-Soulanges) where ho got married in 1786.

    As for Vincent's youngest son, Pierre, we can find some of his descendants in Saint-Eustache, to the northwest of Montréal.

    Vincent died in July 1726 in Beauport (interred on the 31st), and his widow remarried in 1729 with Jacques Paradis.

  6. Jacques Rodrigue was born in village Saint-Michel in Beauport, and baptized in Beauport on 27 May 1685. He married Geneviève Caron (widow of Jean Bernier dit de Paris) in Cap-Saint-Ignace (contract Bernard de Larivière, 7 July 1718). We have identified only one child of this couple, Jacques, born in 1718 in Cap-Saint-Ignace.

    Jacques's descendants mostly settled in the region of L'Islet / Cap-Saint-Ignace; but a branch settled in the Charlevoix region (Baie-Saint-Paul, Les Éboulements), and some others in the metropolitan region of Montréal. Another branch, descended from the Baie-Saint-Paul branch, settled in the region of Trois-Pistoles, where it changed its name to Ladrie.

    Jacques Rodrigue died in August 1752 in Cap-Saint-Ignace (interred on the 18th), 6 years after his wife.

João Rodrigues da Fonte
(Viana do Castelo, Portugal, ca 1686 - Québec, 27 September 1733)

Jean Rodrigue dit de Fonds (João Rodrigues da Fonte) (some sources call him Pierre-Jean Rofdrigue, but this is an error: they mistake him for the first son of Jean Rodrigue and Anne LeRoy — see above) originated from the city of Viana do Castelo, in northern Portugal. His parents were João Rodrigues (Jean Rodrigue) and Ana Mança (Anne Mance). He settled first in Port-Royal (now Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia); on 16 March 1707, he married there Anne LeBorgne de Belle-Isle, daughter of Alexandre LeBorgne de Belle-Isle and Marie de Saint-Étienne de Latour. After his wedding, he settled in Louisbourg, located in Cape Breton Island, in Nova Scotia. Jean-Baptiste Rodrigue dit de Fonds was a rich merchant and shipowner in Louisbourg. Il a aussi certainement beaucoup voyagé dans le cadre de ses occupationsHe also most certainly travelled a lot for his business: for example, we find him in the Québec region in 1713-1714, where one of his sons was born; he also died there in 1733. The couple had eleven children: Joseph, Michel, Jean-François, Jean-Baptiste, Antoine, Pierre, Marie-Anne, Louis, Catherine-Josèphe, François-Luc and Anne-Charlotte.

  1. Joseph Rodrigue was born on 24 February 1708 in Port-Royal.

  2. Michel Rodrigue was born on 4 July 1710 in Port-Royal. He married in Louisbourg on 14 July 1738 with Marguerite Lartigue, daughter of Joseph Lartigue and Jeanne Dihars. The couple had 19 children: Marguerite (Louisbourg, 5 May 1739 — 1744), Marie-Jeanne (Louisbourg, 12 April 1740 — La Rochelle, France, 10 October 1750), Antoine (Louisbourg, June 1741 — ?), Léon (Louisbourg, 5 February 1743 — ?), Anne-Marguerite (Louisbourg, 1744 — ?), Pierre (La Rochelle, France, November 1745 — after 1785), Michel-Jérôme (La Rochelle, France, July 1747 — La Rochelle, France, 14 January 1749), Marguerite-Josèphe (La Rochelle, France, 7 February 1749 — ?), Marie (La Rochelle, France, 16 August 1750 — ?), Hélène (La Rochelle, France, 18 October 1751 — ?), Michel (La Rochelle, France, 10 June 1753 — ?), Louis (La Rochelle, France, 16 August 1754 — ?), Paul (La Rochelle, France 16 December 1755 — after 1832), François-Victor (La Rochelle, France, 1 June 1757 — Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S.A., 1796), Auguste (before 1759 — after 1777), René (before 1759 — after 1777), André-Jacques (La Rochelle, France, November 1759 — Ebensburg, Pennsylvania, U.S.A., 11 September 1844), Adélaïde-Rosalie (La Rochelle, France, July 1761 — ?), and Victoire (? — ?).

    André-Jacques later became a planter in Saint-Domingue (Haiti); ehe had to flee from Haiti during the slave revolt at the end of the 1790s, and he went to Pennsylvania. His descendants settled mostly in Pennsylvania, in New York and in Connecticut. Two of his sons gained a certain fame. Jacques-Aman-Théodore dit William (1800-1867) was an architect; brother-in-law of John Hughes, Archbishop of New York (whose sister he had married), he was given a certain participation in the construction of Saint Patrick Cathedral in New York City. His brother Aman-Théodore-Michel dit Aristide (1809-1857), was a physician, but he was more known as a builder and an adventurer: in 1854, il a fondé la ville de Lecomptonhe founded the town of Lecompton, Kansas (then called Bald Eagle), in association with colonel Albert Boone, grandson of Daniel Boone; he was also known as being strongly opposed to the abolition of slavery.

    Michel Rodrigue was, like his father, a rich shipowner; a house in Louisbourg has been named after him.

  3. Jean-François Rodrigue was born in Québec on 24 August 1713 (he was baptized the same day in Notre-Dame de Québec); he died less than a year later, in July 1714 (he was interred in L'Ancienne-Lorette on 27 July 1714).

  4. Jean-Baptiste Rodrigue was born circa September 1714; he died between 1738 and 1742.

  5. Antoine Rodrigue was born in 1722. He married in Louisbourg on 19 May 1750 with Françoise Jacau, daughter of Thomas Jacau and Anne Melanson. They had 14 children: Françoise (Louisbourg, 19 February 1751 — Louisbourg, 26 February 1751), Anne-Hypolite (Louisbourg, 17 March 1752 — Louisbourg, 27 March 1752), Antoine (Louisbourg, 24 May 1753 — 4 May 1823), Jeanne-Françoise (Louisbourg, 23 July 1754 — ?), Pierre-Joseph (Louisbourg, 20 December 1755 — ?), Hyppolite (Louisbourg, 1 June 1757 — ?), Charles-Joseph (Saint-Pierre, Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, France, 10 February 1760 — ?), François-Édouard (La Rochelle, France, 25 February 1761 — 10 November 1761, Saint-Saturnin-du-Bois, France), Antoine (La Rochelle, France, August 1762 — ?), Michelle (Saint-Pierre, Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, France, March 1765 — Saint-Pierre, Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, France, 11 July 1787), Domitille (Saint-Pierre, Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, France, 30 April 1767 — after 1832), Louise (Saint-Pierre, Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, France, 10 February 1768 — Saint-Pierre, Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, France, August 1768),et François-Edmond (Saint-Pierre, Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, France, 24 November 1772 — ?). The family had settled in Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon following the Acadian Deportation. Antoine died on 2 May 1789 in Port-Louis, Morbihan, France.

    In St-Pierre, Antoine Sr. was a merchant. According to Bona Arsenault, in his Histoire et Généalogie des Acadiens, "he owned a house, three stores, five shacks to house the fishermen". His son Antoine was a shipowner; also according to Bona Arsenault, "he owned two ocean-going schooners, four fishing schooners, three small boats and other vessels".

    A son of this second Antoine and Marcelline Martin, François, settled in Louisiana (in the same region where Jean-Baptiste Rodrigue, great-grandson of Jean Rodrigue and Anne Leroy, had settled around 1760). He married Marie-Basilisse Leboeuf in Thibodaux on 20 September 1824.

  6. Pierre Rodrigue was born on 5 February 1723 in Louisbourg. On 17 June 1752, he married in Louisbourg Rose Castaing, daughter of Antoine Castaing, a merchant from Bordeaux, France, Élisabeth Sarcellié. This family was also known as Lafond. They had 6 children: Pierre-Antoine (Louisbourg, 18 August 1753 — ?), Olive-Antoinette (Louisbourg, 22 January 1755 — after 1791; she got married in; Bordeaux, France on 5 October 1782 with Jean Dupuch; she then remarried in Bordeaux with Jean Dumas), Jean-Justin (Mérignac, France, 15 July 1756 — ?), André (Mérignac, France, 5 August 1757 — ?), Gabrielle (ca 1758 — ?), and Anne (ca 1760 — ?).
