    • Sailed on the ship Satisfaction in 1657 to Acadia

      Pierre Melanson dit Laverdure was a French Protestant who married in exile in England to an English woman named Priscilla. Taken in Acadia with his family by Thomas Hall in the spring of 1657, Peter, his wife and their youngest son retreated to Boston after the Treaty of Breda in 1667. Their two sons, already married to Acadians, remained in Acadia. The eldest of these was Charles, ne 1643, who married Marie Dugas, daughter of Abraham Dugas and Marguerite Doucet. They had nine girls and five boys, two of whom, Charles and John, became the ancestors of Melanson southeastern New Brunswick. Charles Melanson’s son was born about 1675. Around 1700, he married with Anne Bourque, daughter of François Bourque and Marguerite Boudrot. Resident of Port-Royal, Charles seems to have been on board the Pembroke in 1755 to be transported to North Carolina. However, the Acadian prisoners seized the ship, the leader at the mouth of the Saint John River. From there, they eventually won in Quebec City, where Charles Melanson ended his days September 19, 1757. Charles Melanson was the father of a third Charles, born about 1702, who married at Port-Royal, February 18, 1727, Anne Granger, daughter of Claude Granger and Jeanne Guilbeau. In turn the third Charles and his wife gave birth to a fourth Charles, Oct. 13, 1738. The latter, called Litan, Léger married Anne, daughter of Joseph Leger and Claire LeBlanc, August 29, 1765, whichever is registered at Franklin Manor. [1]
