The following message is posted for the benefit of "new" members of this
LANDRY Mailing List and will be re-posted on an ongoing basis.
A subscriber to one of the other Mailing Lists which I Facilitate, has
offered the following suggestions as a means of increasing the activity on
"Would it be possible to start a trend? Each week we concentrate on one
letter of the alphabet for FIRST names of Landry? We are getting a lot of
input this way on another List and great discussions going. As an example,
the first week we work on people whose first name begin with the letter A.
There can be the usual e-mails covering all subjects concerning the Landry
lines but this might put some spark back into the list. Just a suggestion."
I very much support this suggestion and encourage all subscribers to

In a message dated 5/24/01 9:35:49 PM Central Daylight Time, Molly Wright
James at <Mandrjames> requested information on her great grandparents:
Marguerite Landry and Aladain Dupre of Belle Rose, Louisiana.
Marguerite Landry was the daughter of Alcide and Collettte Landry.
Marguerite Landry died in 1918.
Can anyone help
As you can see, I have posted your inquiry to a number of people in hopes to
get a leas.
The dates and places of births, marriages and deaths of as many of your
ancestors and the names of their spouses and children would help.
ENGLISH PASTOR APOLOGIZES TO ACADIANS
According to Acadian writer Clive Doucet, the Acadian deportations of
1755 (ex. Grand-Pré, Nova Scotia) and 1758 (Charlottetown, P.E.I.) mark
the real beginning of the British Empire but the long, rich and
complicated tapestry of Acadian survival remains, on the whole, still
unspoken and unacknowledged. In his recent book (Notes from Exile,
McClelland & Steuart ), he says that "the story of Acadie is the story
of the disappearance of a people from the geography of nations...and it
happened at gunpoint" i.e. at British gunpoint. He adds : "It's as if a
great broom had swept through Acadian society erasing not just the
elders but our history.....Nothing happens in Acadie that is not marked
by the Deportation. It is a wind that still blows."
A wind that nowadays seems to herald for Acadians what has been called a
transitional-time of cleansing-closing : a time of reconciliation ! What
transpired in the parish of Mont-Carmel, Prince Edward Island, on April
1st, 2001 indeed reverberates throughout the land of Acadie for a time
for genuine reconciliation. The cause of all this commotion : the homily
given in French by visiting English pastor, David Adcock, of the
Southampton Community Church in England.
A former advisor to the BBC in religious broadcasting for 5 years, thus
enriched by a border perspective about the Christian faith today,
pastor Adcock met the folks from the Summerside Community Church
(P.E.I.) who attended one of the Church's conference in England. Pastor
Adcock had then shared the importance of reconciliation between churches
and peoples. It was the Summerside congregation that arranged for him to
go to Mont-Carmel, a predominantly French Acadian parish, and meet
Father Eddie Cormier. He was then invited to speak to the people at
their regular Sunday Mass.
Basing his homily on Saint Paul's second epistle to the Corinthians 5
:17ff and also on the theme of the Lenten season : "So many reasons to
be reconciled", pastor Adcock spoke on the ministry reconciliation that
Christ offers. He spoke these words to the Acadian parishioners of
Mont-Carmel : "As an Englishmen, I read about the expulsion of the
Acadian people last year when I visited Prince Edward Island for the
first time. I was shocked by the way you were treated. If you feel it is
relevant for an Englishman, a "pasteur" from Southampton, in the year
2001, to apologize, I want to do so. I want to ask your forgiveness for
the way my people treated you".
Pastor Adcock informed the parishioners that he works with Protestant
Evangelical groups in Normandy (France) with friends from a Roman
Catholic charismatic community. Not far from the beaches where Canadian
soldiers gave their lives, in the Second World War, his Church has set
up a house called "Sans Frontières" (Without Borders). He added that
"just as Christ has reconciled us to God, we too have this ministry of
reconciliation".Mont-Carmel parishioners, surprised and overwhelmed,
expressed their assent by a heartfelt applause, some in tears.
For a local historian, " it was an incredible and moving experience. It
as if the evils about the deportation of his people, that had been
submerged and hidden for so long, were suddenly brought to the surface
in the parish where he grew up. At last, to be faced, cleansed and
changed" ! It's the beginning of a long process which should end up at
Grand-Pré (Nova Scotia) when Queen Elizabeth apologizes to Acadians
worldwide for the ethnic cleansing that her royal ancestors and the
British government perpetrated against an innocent people.
(Mont-Carmel Parish, P.E.I.)
I have noticed that there has been a lot of interest in saving the cemetery
plots in St. Martinville and other church parishes in Louisiana, that are
allegedly being considered for resale with the remains removed. This is being
done because no one has paid for the rental and/or maintenance fee for a
number of years and in essence they are neglected cemetery plots.
Since it appears that the issue is MONEY, both needed by the church parish
and for the maintenance of the cemetery, it would appear that the solution is
simply to establish a fund to assist in the "SAVING OF OUR ANCESTORS GRAVES".
Vincent Landry / RenéLandry
In an earlier posting, I mentioned the recent speculation on the relationship
of rené Landry, le Cadet (LeJeune) m. Marie Bernard and notary Vincent
Landry, chief recruiter for Charles de Menou, Sieur d'Aulnay who was
stationed at the Poitevin town of LaChausée. It is believed by some that
Vincent Landry was the father of Rene Landry who would have been born at
LaChausée and traveled to Acadia as a young batchelor, where he met and
married Marie Bernard daughter of ..?.. Bernard and Andrée Guyon at port
Royal in ca 1659.

I have tried to contact Madame Touret to discuss this further, but I have not
had a response.
Maybe someone who is aquainted with her, or is familiar with this theory of
René's parents and his origin, would respond to this posting.
I am particularly directing this request to Francois Roux, Ken Breau, Stephen
White and /or Ronnie Giles LeBlanc.

I have no knowledge of Jean-Claude's parents. I do have that he had two
children with Marie Sale. (This is not true)
Rene and Antoinette were not children of marie Sale. She was never married to
a Jean-Claude landry. Jean-Claude Landry is a myth born out of the necessity
to give the Landry surname to marie Salé's deceased husband Jehan Claud.

THE LANDRY FAMILY IN NORTH AMERICA
ORIGINS AND PROGENITORS
Although there are at least 4 separate lines (or clans) of Landrys that
settled in North America, there are only two Landry Clans whose origins are
Guillaume Landry, s/o Maturin Landry and Damiane Desavis (De Savis or
Desaints), d' habits ne Neuilly-sur-Eure (Orne) was baptized on 23 February
1623 in La-Ventrouze, canton Tourouvre, ar. Mortagne, Perche (Orne); s. 8
Jan. 1689 Ste-Famille I.O.; aux rec. 66, 67 et 81, a l'Ile Orleans; cite 1
Jan. 1656 Quebec. [AG-FNF] Guillaume immigrated to Canada sometime in 1653.
Records show that he was present at the baptism of his grandson, Jacques
Carbonneau on Dec 9 1674 in the parish of Ste-Famille, I'le d'Orleans,
Quebec, Canada and he signed a marriage contract on Aug 24 1659 in Ile
d'Orleans, Quebec, Canada. Guillaume was buried on Jan 8 1689 in Ste-Famille,
I'le d'Orleans, Quebec, Canada.
The second was Jean-Jacques Henri Landry who came from Switzerland to
Louisiana married Susanne Celestine Sandoz and settled in St. Martinville in
the 1830s. Today, their progeny are concentrated in the Lafayette, Louisiana
ORIGIN OF THE LANDRYS OF ACADIA
"Regarding the origin and the parents of the two René Landrys, there is
probably no other Acadian family about whose background there has been so
much speculation and wishful thinking. The result is that what we actually
know about the Landry families, who emigrated from France to Acadia, has come
to be regrettably enshrouded in a dense fog of error and confusion.
Four individuals named Landry, who were born in France, appear in the
Acadian censuses of 1671, 1678, 1686, and 1693. Two of these were men, both
named René, and two were women, named Perrine and Antoinette. Many
researchers have presumed that these four Landrys were all closely related,
but such is not the case. In fact, while it is possible to prove that
Antoinette Landry was the sister of one of the Renés and permissible to
believe that Perrine Landry was his sister as well. But after a study of the
dispensations granted upon the marriages of the descendants of the Landrys,
it appears that the first two René Landrys in Acadia could not have bee been
any more nearly related to the other René Landry than as cousins in the
second or third degree.
The proofs to which I have just alluded repose in the presence or absence
of dispensations for consanguinity in the records of the marriages of the
descendants of the Landrys. As you may know, until the first world war, the
Catholic Church required dispensations of relationships, whether by blood or
by marriage, as remote as the fourth degree, that is as distant as those
between third cousins, or persons whose great-grandparents included siblings.
In the case of Antoinette Landry and the elder René Landry, we find, for
example, that when Antoinette's great-grandson Francois Brun married the
elder René's great-granddaughter Madeleine Dupuis, October 24, 1735, at Port
Royal, there was a dispensation granted the young couple for the fourth
degree consanguinity. I can refer you to at least eight more marriage records
in which like dispensations are marked down, all involving
great-grandchildren of Antoinette Landry, who wed great grandchildren of the
elder René Landry. Two among these eight are mentioned in an article on the
Landrys that the late Father Patrice Gallant published in the Cahiers de la
Societe historique acadienne in 1972 (Vol. IV, pp. 271-273), Unfortunately,
Father Gallant confused the question of the relationships among the Landrys,
despite his good intentions, by misidentifying the parents of Madeleine
Dupuis' parents, Jean Dupuis and Anne Richard. He confounded and Anne with
another couple, Jean Dupuis and Marguerite Richard, who were the other Jean's
nephew and Ann's first cousin. By chance, both Dupuis couples descended from
Landrys, while the Jean Dupuis who married Marguerite Richard was a grandson
of the younger René Landry.
Father Gallant thus got the two Rene Landrys mixed up, which gave him the
impression that both René Landrys were Antoinette Landry's brothers, and thus
brothers one to the other. As you can see, however, the dispensations to
which Father Gallant referred to, when properly worked out, only have the
potential to connect the elder René Landry to Antoinette.
As both Antoinette Landry and the elder René Landry married Bourgs, it
would appear that one could explain the relationship between their respective
descendants equally well by supposing that Antoine Bourg and Perrine Bourg
were siblings. Fortunately, there is an easy way to resolve this apparent
dilemma. Perrine Bourg had first married Simon Pelleret, and their two
daughters had numerous descendants, at least seven of whom married
descendants of Antoine Bourg who would have been their third cousins, if
Perrine and Antoine had in fact been sister and brother. Not one of the
records of these seven marriages includes a dispensation for any degree of
consanguinity whatsoever. The possibility that Perrine and Antoine were
siblings can thus be eliminated, leaving only the possibility, which may
thereby be considered amply proved, that Antoinette Landry was a sister to
the elder René Landry.
The widow Perrine Landry, who had married Jacques Joffriau but is not
known to have had any children, is listed in the censuses of 1671 and 1678 as
residing beside or with Laurent Granger and Marie Landry. As Marie Landry
was the daughter of the elder René Landry, it may be supposed that Perrine
was very nearly related to him too. Given that Perrine was sixty years old in
1671, when the elder René Landry was himself fifty-three, it seems quite
likely that Perrine was this René's sister.
On the other hand, your ancestor, the younger René Landry, was not nearly
related to any of these other Landrys. We can be sure of this from the
absence of dispensations in the records of the marriages of his descendants
to descendants of either the elder René Landry or Antoinette Landry. The
younger Rene's grandson Germain Dupuis, for example, married the elder Rene's
granddaughter Marie Granger, November 3, 1717, at Grand-Pré, without any
dispensation for kindred. Had the two Renés been even first cousins, there
would have had to have been a dispensation for consanguinity in the fourth
degree in this record. Regarding Antoinette Landry and the younger René, I
would point out the absence of dispensations in the marriages of Joseph
Landry and Marie-Joseph Bourg, Jan 11, 1745 at Grand Pré, of François Landry
and Dorothée Bourg, November 21, 1731, at Grand Pré and of Jean Daigre and
Madeleine Landry, November 6, 1721 at Grand Pré. In all three of these
instances the Landrys were grandchildren of the younger René, and their three
spouses were all great-grandchildren of Antoinette Landry. We can thus rule
out any possibility of the younger René being the brother, or even the nephew
The two progenitors of the Acadian Landrys, René Landry dit l' aisne (the
elder), born in France in 1618 and believed to have arrived in Acadia ca.
1640 and René Landry, dit le jeune (the younger) was born in France in 1634,
whose date of arrival in Acadia is unknown, and was married at Acadia in 1659
This is because the records of the progenitors of the Acadian Landrys (René
Landry dit l' aisne (the elder) and René Landry, dit le jeune (the younger)
were lost in the many fires that occurred in Port Royal, there is no
documentation (as yet discovered) that indicates either the parents or the
place of origin of either René Landry.
"..... The reason why it is very difficult to trace early Acadian families to
their places of origin in France is because all of Acadia's early records,
whether parish registers, notorial archives, or others, have all long since
been lost. This is a real handicap in Acadian research. .... I am given to
understand that the Landry name, for example, is well known in the area
around Loudun in Poitou (N. Bujold and M. Caillebeau, Les origines françaises
des premieres familles acadiennes: le sud Loundais (Poitiers: Imprimeirie
L'Union, 1979) p. 32), but is rather hard to find elsewhere in France."
(Professor Stephen A. White, Genealogist at the Université De Moncton in New
" ……………. there is no specific documentation to show that either the elder
or younger René LANDRY actually originated from LaChaussée. Even though we do
know that a majority of the first colonists in Acadia came from Loundunais
(Geneviéve Massignon, in her linguistic analysis), and there were numerous
LANDRYS in the vicinity of La Chaussée in the 17th century, it is only a
matter of probability, but there is no certainty, that either the elder or
the younger René Landry came from La Chaussée in the Loudun area of
west?central France. "
Father Clarence J. d'Entremont states that dealing with the origins of a
great number of Acadians who "were married before 1700, when the registers of
Port Royal were destroyed in a fire; the Landrys are among this group".
There is ample evidence of René Landry's presence in Acadia, but to my
knowledge, any vital information about him before his showing up in the 1786
census of Port Royal, does not exist.
AN OFTEN REPEATED ERROR
Because Guillaume Landry, was baptized on 23 February 1623 in La-Ventrouze,
canton Tourouvre, ar. Mortagne, Perche (Orne); s. 8 Jan. 1689 Ste-Famille
I.O.; aux rec. 66, 67 et 81, a l'Ile Orleans; cite 1 Jan. 1656 Quebec.
[AG-FNF] and who immigrated to Canada about the same time as the René
Landrys immigrated to Acadia, it is assumed by some, that all of the Landrys
that came to North America from France originated from the same area.
SOME SPECULATION AS TO THE ORIGIN OF RENE LANDRY
"According to the genealogical research of Généviéve Massigon ("Les Parles
Français d'Acadie", 1962, vol 1, p. 55), "the progenitors of at least sixteen
families of different surnames (including LANDRY) came from three small
villages -LaChaussée, Martaizé and Aulnay-south of the town of Loudon,
province of Poitou). In these villages, during the early seventeenth
century, lived the ancestors of Babin, Breaux (Brault), Gautreau, Hebert,
LeBlanc, Landry, Savoie, and other families, whose descendants comprise a
large portion of the Acadian and Louisiana French today"
These villages formed a part of the estate of Charles de Menou, Sieur
d'Aulnay, who was governor of Acadia from 1635 to 1650. During this time, his
chief colonial recruiter, notary Vincent LANDRY, was stationed at the
Poitevin town of LaChausée, where he recruited a number of his workers in
France to colonize Acadia, and many families from the Loudun continued to
migrate to the colony of Acadia. Généviéve Massigon is quoted by many
researchers, including Robert C. West and Carl Brasseau.
Recently, Notorial records of the time of the colonization of Acadia have
been uncovered. These records are being studied to see if some light can be
shed on the origin and ancestors of the early Acadians.
Amongst the speculation, it is believed by some that Charles de Menou, Sieur
d'Aulnay's chief colonial recruiter, notary Vincent LANDRY, mentioned above,
was the father of René LANDRY leJeune.
We have finally found the elusive Jean-Claude Landry deep in the bowels of
France. He is the "Directeur des travaux pour le GIE métro" ("Director of
works for the GIE metro") in France
"Directeur des travaux pour le GIE métro, Jean-Claude Landry est un vétéran
des tunnels. Il a conduit Perceval de la rue Jules-Simon jusqu’au puits
Tumoine. (Ouest-France du 16 mars 2000)
Jean-Claude Landry a pris les manettes du tunnelier en juin 1999, etc.

You probably received a CC from Jim Landry, who put together the Landry
Family Association's Landry database.
In his reply to the information I sent to him on the genealogy of Urgel
Landry, he states that the Landry family Association's Landry database shows
that Germain Landry married to Cecile Forest was the son of Jean Landry and
Cecile Melancon.....not Antoine Landry and Marie Thibodeau.
The Landry database has 13 children listed for Antoine and Marie Thibodeau
and none are named Germain.
He also states that he does not have any info that a Jean Baptiste was the
son of Germain Landry and Cecile Forest.
Can anyone check their information on this family and forward it and a list
