The census taker must not have been too concerned that this family

Pierre DUPEUX [Dupuis] 39; Madelaine LANDRI [Landry] (wife) 45; Michel 19; Anthoine 16; Pierre 14; Rene 12; Anne 18; 22 cattle, 28 sheep, 26 arpents, 2 guns.

was blended. All the children listed are surnamed Richard and are from Madeleine's first marriage. Earlier censuses make this distinction but I suppose after a number of years it was not as important? I wonder what happened to the two very small children listed in this family on the 1698 census...

Lucie LeBlanc Consentino said...

Hi Caroline,

I suspect the fact regarding "blended" families may not have been given much consideration after a while though your point is well taken.

Which two young children are you referring to? I'll see if I have anything on them.

This is the snip from the 1698 census posted on your site.

Pierre DUPUIS 28; Madeleine LANDRY (wife, widow of Rene RICHARD) 43;
Michel (RICHARD) 17; Anne (RICHARD) 16 ; Antoine (RICHARD) 15;
Pierre (RICHARD) 13; Rene 12; Jeanne 3; Marie 5; 34 cattle 25 sheep, 16 hogs,
40 arpents, 30 fruit trees, 3 guns, 1 servant.

This is 1701:
Pierre DUPUY 30, Magdeleine LANDRY (wife) 47; Michel RICHARD 20, Anthoine 17, Pierre 15, Rene 13, Marie 8, Jeanne 6, Charles 4; servant: Therese MIRAUDE [Mirande] 18; 2 guns, 22 cattle, 30 sheep, 20 hogs, 16 arpents.

So Marie and Jeanne didn't disappear, they just got overlooked in 1700 for some reason.

Hi Caroline,

The thing about census records is that for one thing, the Acadians were not always forthright in reporting or in giving the correct information.

In the case of the 1700 census, they may not have been around perhaps visiting relatives elsewhere and just missing the enumerator. Anything is possible.

When I have time I'll have to look at the census records I photocopied from Stephen White.
