Jacques Badeau was born c1615 in France. He married Anne Ardouin, c1631, possibly at La Rochelle. Two of their youngest children were baptized at Ste-Marguerite-de-La Rochelle in France. One was François Badeau, baptized 10 August 1632 and the other Madeleine Badeau, baptized 24 April 1634. At least two other children were born in France: Jeanne Badeau, born c1640 and Jean Badeau, born c1641.

In 1647, Jacques entered into a "bail de métayer" with the Jesuits and came to Québec with his wife Anne and three children (François, Jean and Jeanne) to serve as a tenant farmer. I presume their other daughter, Madeleine, died in France.

Jacques Badeau and Anne Ardouin had at least one other child; Suzanne Badeau, born 18 August 1651, baptized 3 September 1651 at Québec.

Jacques Badeau died 17 August 1658 and was buried 18 August 1658 at Québec.
