Notes for Pierre Arsenault
Pierre Arsenault was born about 1646, in the vicinity of Rochefort, France. Some lists his birthplace as Saitonges, near La Rochelle in France. He died in 1710 at Beaubassin, Acadia, now Amherst, Nova Scotia, Pierre arrived in Acadia from La Rochelle, France in spring of 1671 on the ship "L'Oranger". He was a sailor originally from the vicinity of Rochefort. In Acadia he was Captain of a vessel for Jacques Bourgeois and was occupied in transporting colonists and merchandise between Port Royal and Beaubassin. Pierre seconded Jacques Bourgeois in the establishment of the Beaubassin settlement where he lived in 1680. Several of his children settled at Ile Saint-Jean (Prince Edward Island) during the mid 1730s. He married twice and settled in 1686 as seigneur (lord) of a concession at Beaubassin (Amherst) Nova Scotia. Pierre died around 1710.
We can reasonably estimate the date of settlement of Pierre Arsenault at Beaubassin around 1685, for at the major census taken in 1686 he is mentioned along with his family in the following manner: Pierre Arsenault, 40 years, married to Marie Guerin, 24 years; the eldest of their children is 10 years. Marie was the daughter of Francois Guerin.
After 1686, the aging Pierre Arsenault went to live at Beaubassin and in the census of 1686 it is noted that Pierre Arsenault "possesses in the Seigneurie (lordship) of Beaubassin, one firearm, three acres cultivated land, eight animals with horns, four sheeps, six pigs"; in 1696 the English attacked and burned Beaubassin. Two years later, in the 1698 census, Pierre possesses twelve animal with horns, six sheeps, five pigs, twentyone acres of land under cultivation and two firearms." In 1700 according to the same census, he has "six animals with horns, thirteen sheeps, twelve pigs, twentyfour acres cultivated and four firearms."
