  of 404

Here is my Godin family line...perhaps one of your ancestors is here!

Generation One:

Pierre GODIN DIT CHATILLON, b. 17 May 1630, Saint Vorle de Chatillon-sur-Seines, France; d. Abt. 1680, Port Royal, Quebec, Canada. Married to Jeanne ROUSSELIERE (b. Abt. 1628, Xaintes en Saintonge, France; d. UK, Port Royal, Quebec, Canada) in 1654 at Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Children of Pierre GODIN DIT CHATILLON and Jeanne ROUSSELIERE:

1) Gabriel GODIN DIT BELLEFONTAINE, b. Abt. 1659, New Brunswick, Canada; d. UK, prob. New Brunswick.

2) Jean Rene GODIN DIT VALCOURT, b. Abt. 1660, New Brunswick, Canada; d. UK, prob. New Brunswick.

Had eight other sons.

Notes on Pierre GODIN DIT CHATILLON: Pierre was a carpenter, like his father, and took part in “la grande recrue” by Maisonneuve in 1653, immigrating to Villemarie (later Montreal), Canada. He married the following year, and lived in Montreal for about 20 years. In 1675, he built the little chapel of Lachine and the following year sold his property to Mathurin Thibodeau to come and build a mill on the new “seigneurie” of the Sieur de La Valliere in Beaubassin, Acadie. The family then settled in Port Royal, where he died. Pierre took on the name of his native city, Chatillon, and his son, Gabriel, took the name Bellefontaine. Except for two of his sons, which kept the name Bellefontaine, the other eight sons each took on the names Beausejour, Boisjoli, Bellefeuille, Preville, Lincour and Vacourt.

Generation Two:

Jean Rene GODIN DIT VALCOURT, b. Abt. 1660, New Brunswick, Canada; d. UK, prob. New Brunswick. Married to Francoise DUGAS (b. Abt. 1700, prob. New Brunswick; d. UK, New Brunswick) about 1715 in New Brunswick, Canada. Children of Jean Rene GODIN DIT VALCOURT and Francoise DUGAS:

1) Jean Baptiste L'HUITRE GODIN, b. Abt. 1719, New Brunswick, Canada; d. 9 Nov 1809, prob. New Brunswick.

2) Antoine Ambroise GODIN, b. Abt. 1725-30, New Brunswick, Canada; d. Aft. 1772, Canada. Married to Madeleine BERGERON (sister of Angelique) on 14 Jan 1772 at Isle-Verte, Quebec.

Notes on Jean Rene GODIN DIT VALCOURT: Considered by genealogist Adrien Bergeron to be the father of the Godins of Caraquet, New Brunswick. Jean Rene immigrated to Cacouna, P.Q. when his home was destroyed as the village of Pointe Sainte Anne was burnt to the ground.

Generation Three:

Jean Baptiste L'HUITRE GODIN, b. Abt. 1719, New Brunswick, Canada; d. 9 Nov 1809, prob. New Brunswick. Married to Angelique BERGERON (b. Abt. 1725, New Brunswick; d. UK, prob. New Brunswick; daughter of Michel BERGERON and Marie DUGAS) on 14 Jan 1762, New Brunswick, Canada. Children of Jean Baptiste L'HUITRE GODIN and Angelique BERGERON:

1) Alexandre GODIN, b. Abt. 1755, New Brunswick; d. Abt. 1804, Canada.

2) Francois GODIN, b. Abt. 1757, New Brunswick; d. UK, Canada.

3) Marie GODIN, b. Abt. 1760, New Brunswick; d. UK, Canada. Married to Mr. CORMIER.

4) Marie Rosalie GODIN, b. UK, New Brunswick; d. UK, Canada.

5) Michel GODIN, b. Abt. 1762, New Brunswick; d. UK, prob. New Brunswick.

6) Marie Louise GODIN, b. Abt. 1763, New Brunswick; d. Abt. 1786, Canada. Married to Mr. THERIAULT.

7) Marie Anne GODIN, b. Abt. 1764, New Brunswick; d. UK, Canada. Married to Mr. ARSENAULT.

8) Jean Baptiste GODIN, b. Abt. 1766, New Brunswick; d. 1810, Canada.

9) Marie Joseph GODIN, b. Abt. 1768, New Brunswick; d. 10 Apr 1816, Petit-Rocher, New Brunswick.

Notes on Jean Baptiste L'HUITRE GODIN: In 1779, sold his property in Cacouna to settle at Riviere Saint Jean, on the ancestral property, with his brother, Antoine. But the arrival of large numbers of Loyalists in 1783 caused problems for the Acadians on the St. Jean River. They had not yet obtained titles for their property and ownership squabbles erupted. The Godin’s left the area and joined the Acadians (Theriault & Pinet) along the northern New Brunswick rivers. Jean Baptiste and Antoine established themselves in Caraquet, New Brunswick around 1786, west of the village now known as Bertrand. They are the ancestors of the Godin’s of Maisonnette, Petit Rocher, Pokemouche, Lameque, Tracadie Neguac and the Jacquet River.
