(21) Steven Cormier's website at: http://www.acadiansingray.com/appendices-Acadian%20Pioneers.htm: 99 (Arsenault, Genealogie, 662-64, 1415; White, Dictionnaire Acadiennes, 1048-58; White, Dictionnaire English Supplement, 223-28. Arsenault does not even mention the elder Pierre dit Briard; his information comes from White, who claims that Martin dit Briard married a third time to Marie Arnault (Renaud) dit Grislard in 1729 at Grand Pr?. Again, marriage dates differ between Arsenault and White, and, again, I follow White here. White, Dictionnaire Acadiennes, 1048, lists an Edmée or Aimée Lejeune, born c1624, who married Francois Gautreaux, widower of Marie _____, in 1644, no place given, & a Catherine Lejeune, born c.1633, who married Francois Savoie in 1651, again no place given; White gives no parents for these Lejeune women, but in his Dictionnaire English Supplement, 223, he says they were sisters. He concludes on p.225 of the English Supplement that these women were not sisters of the elder Pierre dit Briard. See also West, Atlas of La. Surnames, 101, who cites Arsenault when he says that Lejeunes settled in Acadia as early as 1646. West may be referring to the elder Pierre dit Briard. The elder Pierre dit Briard is not listed in the first Acadian census of 1671. See
. White gives neither a birth or death date for Pierre dit Briard the elder, so it's anyone's guess why he does not appear in the first census. Given the family's tendency to move a lot, he may have temporarily left the colony with his family, or he may have died by then).
