    Introduction:

    If one wants to trace the Landrys as an Acadian family, one starts with René Landry (b.1618), which is what I did in an earlier work of mine, "The Landrys of Old Acadia." In this work I begin with one of René's descendants, Jean Baptiste (b.1712) [#11221]1 who came to Cape Breton in 1751.

    A monumental event in the early history of Nova Scotia, indeed of Canada, was the The Deportation of the Acadians as occurred at Grand Pré in 1755 -- and, it was indeed a monumental event; but, in fact, the deportation of the Acadians located on the English territory of peninsular Nova Scotia took place in a number of places2 and over a number of years, 1755-63. My point here, however, is that the first Landrys who came to Cape Breton, came voluntarily, and, came before the deportations took place. Prior to 1755, the French Acadian population was under considerable pressure (coming as much from the French authorities as from the English) to move off their long occupied lands which stretched along the Bay of Fundy (Baie Française) from Port Royal (Annapolis Royal) and up along the head of the bay at Beaubassin (handy present day Amherst). (See map.) The French authorities at Cape Breton were anxious to see these French Acadian farmers come to Cape Breton; the problem, however, was that there is precious little in the way of good farming lands in Cape Breton, certainly nothing that compares with the productive capacity of the original Acadian homelands, today's Annapolis Valley. In any event, and for whatever reason, a number of French Acadian families determined to leave Acadia prior to 1755, a branch of the Landry clan was one such family.

    "From 1750, till the year of the Expulsion the threats and inducements of the French agents [Abbé Le Loutre being the principal one] were having their effect and the Acadians in large numbers left the colony, and Cobequid in common with the other places suffered loss in population. Some went to Cape Breton, St. John River, and to the Isthmus, but the largest number went via Tatamagouche to St. John's Island [Prince Edward Island]. In August 1750, it was reported from Port La Joye (Charlottetown) that the Acadians were arriving daily and that there were seven hundred persons on rations. But they did not go willingly. The Governor of Isle St. Jean, himself writing of the inhabitants of Cobequid said, 'they leave their homes with great regret and they began to move their luggage only when the savages compelled them.' This is cogent evidence that coercive methods were being used by the French, quite impervious to the suffering they were inflicting upon those of their race and religion. Many reached the Island in a state of virtual starvation and their condition there was little better."3
    Sixty-two year old Jean-Baptiste Landry with three of his sons (38 year old Jean-Baptiste, 35 year old Joseph5, and 27 year old Alexis) and a battery of 15 grand children, come to Cape Breton, Riviêre dux Habitants, during August, 1751. I don't know when these Landrys left Riviêre dux Habitants; but I do know that they did not stay long at this first place.

    "An out-mission of Port Toulouse [St. Peter's] was La Rivière Magistégouak, which was later called River Inhabitants. La Rocque's report of 1752 says that Sieur Guillaume Benoist had a saw-mill there. The population was composed of thirty-one Acadians, all of whom had been there less than a year, with the exception of Benoist, who had been in the colony three years They were settled at, or near, the mouth of the river, and its inundations prevented any cultivation of the soil."6
    It is a very difficult job to trace up these Landrys which had first come into Cape Breton in 1749, indeed, likely for a great number of them, it will be impossible; for, unfortunately, the "parish records for the whole of Isle Madame were lost when the presbytery in Arichat was destroyed by fire in 1838."7

    On working up from the original Landrys that came to Cape Breton in 1751, what I figure, is this:

    That of the four sons of Jean Baptiste [#11221] (Jean [#11221], Joseph [#11221], Charles [#112213] and Pierre [#11221]) two remained in Cape Breton 8, they being Charles [#112213] and Pierre [#112214]. Charles had three sons, but I do not know their names. Pierre had at least one son named Paul [#1122141].

    Joseph [#11222] and his family eventually were to be found in Miquelon; but, it is likely, that at least one of his sons, Alexander [#112221], came back and settled at Petit Des Grat.

    Alexis [#11224], the third brother to have come to Cape Breton, in 1751, is, the one to whom most Cape Breton Landrys might trace their roots. Alexis had four sons: John [#112241], Peter [#112242], Joseph [#112243] and David [#112244]. These boys apparently settled in Arichat.

  • Next, following, I list all of the Landrys of which I have become aware and which, except for the original Acadian progenitors, were born in Cape Breton prior to 1900. I am certain that there are more, which, in time, might be added to the list and tied into the others. I look forward to hearing from my readers who have any additional information. If you have bits of family history which will add to this list of Landrys; then, I look forward to hearing from you: please e-mail me.

    -A-
  • Abraham (1795-) An "Abraham L'Andry" is listed in the 1811 census, mariner, et ux with 7 children under the age of 14 years. In a militia record of 1825 we see Abraham, age 30, at Little Arichat, fisherman, with a wife and eight children (3 boys, 5 girls). An Abraham Landry is reported to have sold, in 1843, together with Simon Landry, a 141 ton brig, the Prince Albert to W. B. Fairbanks and J. C. Allen of Halifax.
  • Abraham (b.1814): There is a "Abraham, 57" listed in the 1871 census, et ux, Mary. There are two Abrahams reported in the 1838 census, "Glaskey's Point - Big Brook - Little Arichat area," each with families, both are described as "coasters."

Alexander was likely born at Riviêre dux Habitants where his parents had first located when they arrived from Acadia in 1751. It is reported that this Alexander was deported to Miquelon with his father, then a widower, in 1767. However, it is further reported, that the family, within the year, found their , c.1775, to Madeleine [Jean Marchand and Genevieve (Poujet)]; and, so, too, we learn of their son Joseph [#1122212].9 way back to Cape Breton. From the 1811 census we see a Alexandre (Senr), fisherman at Petit Des Grat; he is over the age of 60 with with two male adults in the household over the age of fourteen; "two cattle, three sheep."
  • Alexander [#1122211] (b.c.1780-1863): «Alexander [#112221]. From the 1811 census we see a Alexandre (Junr), fisherman at Petit Des Grat with five children under the age of 14 years, two of which are males.10 In the 1838 census, "Little Anse - Petit de Grat - Barachois - Cocowie Cove - Cape de la Ronde area" we see a "Alexander & Lyed(?)" listed with seven in the family.
  • Alexander (b.1848): «Isaiah (b.1822).
  • Alexander Robert (b.Sep. 24th, 1856): «Isidore
  • Alexander [#112214112] (b March 15, 1859): «Benjamin [#11221411] (b.c.1817). Alexander married [1] Sabine Boudreau Oct 23, 1882. [2] Henriette Samson Nov 23, 1896. There were three boys from the first marriage: William (b. June 21, 1888), Joseph (b. Mar. 28 1890), Georges William (b. June 02, 1891).
  • Alexander (b.1868): «Elias (1831).
  • Alexander (1898-1972): Buried at St. John The Baptist, River Bourgeois.
  • Alexis[#11224]11 (b.c.1723): «Jean Baptiste [#1122] (b.1749) »John (Jean) [#112241] »Pierre [#112242] »Joseph [#112243], and »David [#112244]. Alexis was a Ploughnman, native of "la Cadie." Alexis married, c. 1748, Marguerite Aucoin (b.1717), native of "la Cadie," the daughter of Antoine Aucoin and Anne (Breau). While Arsenault12 simply says they were at P.E.I. during 1752, the 1752 census clearly shows this family arrived at Riviêre dux Habitants, Cape Breton, July, 1750 with two baby sons (Jean Baptiste and Joseph). Alexis and Margueritte were, in 1752, the date of the census, yet but a relatively young couple; so, it is likely that more children were to be born to them. In 1752, we see they had the following live stock: "4 oxen, 5 cows, 1 calf, 2 pigs, and 4 fowls. They are 18 months in the colony and been given rations for 1 year."13 It has been said that Alexis and his brother-in-law, Antoine Aucoin, show up on a list of Acadian refugees at Saint-Suliac, Britanny; however, either, Alexis did not make it with those intended to be deported or he managed to escape the net; or simply, he managed to return to Cape Breton from France. In the 1811 census (Arichat)14 four Landrys show up in a row: John (Jean), Pierre, Joseph, and David; all with "(Alexis)" after their names. Further, there was an "A. Landry," who, with 67 "heads of family" signed a dedication to Desbarres the governor of Cape Breton: Arichat, 8th March, 1786.15
  • Alfred (c.b.1843): This Alfred is listed as a a 28 year old, yet living with his 53 year old widowed mother, Sarah.

  • Alfred (c.b.1866): «Joseph (b.1836).
  • Allen: There was reported to be a Allen Landry who owned, together with Peter Landry, a 48 ton brigantine, A.P.L., which sailed out of Arichat in 1860. (See Parker.)

In the 1838 census, Cape de la Ronde - D'Escousse area, we see "Belony & Victoire," fishermen listed with a family of twelve. From the church records (HYAC) we determine that Victoria's maiden name was Rancon.
  • Benjamin [#11221411] (b.c.1817): «Paul [#1122141] (b.1771) »Hilaire [#112214111] (b.10th June, 1855) »Alexander [#112214112] (b.15 Mar. 1859) »Henry [#112214113] (b.1860) »Joseph [#112214114] (b.1866). We see Benjamin et ux, Marcelline (b.1829) and their seven children listed in the 1871 census. I have received this from one of my correspondents: "Benjamin was from Canso, whether or not he was born there or raised there, I do not know. He definitely lived there for a period of time. His wife Marcelline Boudreau was born in Petit Degrat, in 1821 and she died at the age of 102 yrs, Dec 06, 1923, in North Sydney as is buried at the old St. Joseph's cemetery, in the family plot of her son-in-law Adolphe Camus family. The headstone is still standing. ... Benjamin Landry and Marcelline Boudreau had nine children."
  • Benoit (b.c.1770-1815+): Benoit is located at River Bourgeois in census of 1811-18.
     [HEAD OF LIST]
    -C-
  • Celesten (b.c.1796 d. Jan. 11 1842 (HYAC)): »Thomas (b. Aug, 23, 1833) »Aime (1836 d. Nov. 30 1840) »Adele (b. Sep, 1, 1839 d Mar. 1841) »Magdelaine (born Nov. 17, 1840; baptised, Dec. 17, 1840; died Apr. 10, 1841). In the 1838 census, Cape de la Ronde - D'Escousse area, we see "Celesten & Magdalan," fishermen listed with a family of thirteen. The church records (HYAC) list Celesten and Madeline, or Magdelaine (Josse; 1797-1840); it was from the church records that we see that the 43 year old Magdelaine died, Dec 15, 1840, within the month of the birth of her youngest.
  • Charles [#112213]16 (b.1743): «Jean Baptiste [#11221] »Charles [#1122131]. Charles came to Riviêre dux Habitants with his family in 1751. Married at D'Escousse, Ile Madame to Anne Villedren (d/o Honoré & Marie-Anne (Lalonde)) on 16th October, 1771. A Charles, Mariner (Gabl) shows up in the 1811 census (Arichat).17 Charles is described as a "Mariner." Apparently, of the seven unmarried children: three males were over age 14 and two under; one girl over age 14 and one under. Charles, in 1811, had seven cattle, nine sheep and one vessel. There are two other entries in the 1811 census which are interesting: "Charles Landry's widow and her son, Charles." It would appear that the widow was still keeping a separate family. I see from the burial records that there was a Charlotte Landry, born and died at Arichat, age 77, who died on March 20th, 1870; and, Charlotte's mother is listed as "Ann Boucher." As for the younger Charles [#1122131] (described as a "mariner"), it would appear, he had a wife, and two sons under the age of 14 years. There was a Charles Landry who requested title to his land at Arichat in 1810. According to Sally Ross18, Charles "was 70 years old, had 9 children, 7 of whom were living in Cape Breton." Ms. Ross also writes that the record shows this Charles was born in "present-day New Brunswick in 1740"? I have trouble with this entry, as I believe, the only Landrys in 1740 were located in peninsular Nova Scotia. Further the entry says this Charles had been living in Arichat since 1780.
  • Charles [#1122131] (1792-1882): «Charles [#112213] »Charles [#11221312]. m. Marguerite Hebert. There was a Charles Landry who operated a 98 ton schooner, Calliope out of Descousse, in 1847. (See Parker.)

Jean Baptiste married on the 16th November, 1711, at Grand-Pré, to Marguerite (Marie) Gauterot (Bouherut, Gautrot) (b.1693), "native of Pepeguit." Our Jean Baptiste shows up in the early history of Acadia having signed the Oath Petition21 dated the 23rd December, 1729. Our Jean Baptiste then would have been 39. Further "Jean Baptiste Landry" shows up on the Oath of Allegiance22 signed by 600+ Acadians from "Mines, Cobequit, Piziquid & Beaubassin" in April, 1730. And further, "Jean Baptiste Landry" shows up on the written refusal to have the Acadian lands along the Annapolis River surveyed23 signed the 11th of November, 1731. Jean Baptiste arrived at Riviêre dux Habitants, Cape Breton, on the 15th of August, 1751. There was Jean Bte., Marie (his 59 year old wife), Jean Daigle (their 20 year old nephew), and Margueritte Landry (their 18 year old niece).24 In 1752, the Jean Baptiste Landry family, newly arrived at Cape Breton from Old Acadia, are noted to have: "2 oxen, 2 cows; 1 bull, a pig, and 3 fowls. He has no dwelling place and for that reason has made no clearing." They have been "granted rations for 1 year."25 Arsenault has our Jean Baptiste imprisoned at Halifax during 1755.

Jean Baptiste Landry was one of the original Acadians to come to Richmond County, one of its original settlers. He was a ploughman, a native of Pisiguit. Jean Baptiste married, October 29, 1737, at Grand Pré, Marie-Josephe [b.1720; dgtr. of Francois LeBlanc and Jeanne (Herbert)]. Jean Baptiste arrived with his extended family at Riviêre dux Habitants, Cape Breton, during the summer of 1751.27 As of 1752 they had 4 sons & 2 daughters. In 1752, the Jean Baptiste family had: "3 oxen, 2 cows; 2 pigs, and 5 fowls. He has no dwelling place and for that reason has made no clearing." They have been "granted rations for 1 year."28 According to one source, it is reported, that, by 1771, Jean-Baptiste and Marie-Josephe were located at Arichat.

Our Jean married Marie Dugas, daughter of Abraham Dugas and Marguerite LeBlanc, at Cape Breton, on 28th November, 1765.30 Jean and Marie accompanied Abraham Dugas and his family to Miquelon, where they had their marriage "rehabilitated" on May 28, 1766. It is reported that all six of Jean and Marie's children were born at Miquelon, but after Marie's death in 1777, Jean-Baptiste returned to Isle Madame. He died after April 7, 1804, the date he sold his land in West Arichat.
  • Jean [#112241] (b.1749-c.1812): «Alexis [#11224]. As a young child, this Jean came to Riviêre dux Habitants with his family from Acadia.

It is reported that Jean and Anne left Isle Madame during the American War of Independence, and, for a period of time, could have been found at Chezzetcook. They moved again, and, by the end of the 1790's, they were at the Bay of Fortune, Prince Edward Island. By the 1811 census, however, Jean was to be found back in Cape Breton. In the 1811 census, (Jean) Landry, "mariner," shows up on the list (Arichat) with "Alexis" after his name. One in the family (we might assume it is him) is above the age of 60. There are five other persons (children?) in the family above the age of 14 years. He has three cattle and three sheep.31

While Joseph came to to Riviêre dux Habitants, Cape Breton, in 1751, there is some question if the entire family stayed in Cape Breton.33 In 1763, still at Riviêre dux Habitants, it is reported that another son was born, Alexandre (b.1754 [#112222]).34 In 1752, Alexis le Jeune (1734) his nephew lives with them. In 1752, they have the following live stock: "2 oxen, 4 cows; 2 heifers, a pig, and 5 fowls. He has no dwelling place and for that reason has made no clearing." They have been "granted rations for 1 year."35 Arsenault has our Joseph and his family (his father, Jean Baptiste, is with them) at Miquelon. It is likely, however, that Joseph's son, Alexandre stayed on, or returned, to Cape Breton.

    Grave Markers in Richmond County:

    The following information was obtained during a cemetery tour made by Margo (ux), John (brother) and myself. We made this memorable tour during the first part of August, 1997. We visited certain of the cemeteries of Roman catholic churches on Ilse Madame, at St. Peters and at L'Ardoise. The graveyards at D'Escousse and Petit de Grat, I should say, seem to have more Landrys buried there then the other graveyards which we visited. It was obvious that many of the markers in the older parts of these cemeteries have disappeared; thus, the bodies interned in the earlier years, it would appear, remain nameless. But some information was obtained off the markers; and, so, I record it hereinbelow. Incidently, we restricted ourselves to listing only Landrys where it could be determined they were born prior to 1900.

During August and September of 1758, British naval ships raided French villages from Cape Breton right up to the Gaspé coast; 3540 French people are taken off of Isle St. Jean (Prince Edward Island) and deported to France.

The "La Rocque's report" to which Johnston refers is in fact a census that was carried out by Sieur de la Roque, under the direction of the French governor, M. le Comte de Raymond, in 1752. The census covered both Ile Royal (Cape Breton Island) and Ile St. Jean (Prince Edward Island) and has listed on it, a number of Landrys. It may be safely concluded that there were no Landrys living on Cape Breton Island prior to 1750. If there were, then they would have to have come through the Louisbourg route; and, I have discovered no Landrys among the Louisbourg French. La Roque's full report, dated December 5th, 1752, was filed with the French minister and can now be found at the Archives at Paris and which was published in Canadian Archives, Report (CAR); vol. II, Appendix 'A', (Ottawa: S.E. Dawson, 1906).

    [24] There was a Jean Landry with wife, Margrite (with two sons and six daughters) who were at Boston in August of 1763. (CAR, Appendix 'B', Part III, pp. 134-7.) I don't believe this is the same family, but the coincidence of the same names, husband and wife, is interesting.

    [27] Arsenault at p. 1407 says: "Déporteé à Boston, cette famille s'est établie à i'île Madame, au Cap-Breton." This, in Arsenault's many volumed work, is the only reference of a Landry family which came to Cape Breton from Acadia; this information, however, as we can easily see, is belied by the 1752 census of Cape Breton.

    [31] See Holland. There are two entries for "John" on the census list of 1811. One, John Landry (Alexis), "Arichat"; the other, John (L'Abbé) Landry, "Little Arichat." A "Johnny Landris," with others (Fougere & Degan) received a crown grant in 1806 at Seaview (Sporting Mountain). (See p. 614 of Fergusson's work, Place Names and Places of Nova Scotia, PANS.)

    [32] See Arsenault, p. 1407 & p. 2241; and see CAR, Part I. p. 35.

    [33] There is an indication (Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, Janet Jehn, p. 256) that, by 1767, part of this family [#11222] was located at St. Pierre & Miquelon. Further, Arsenault says (p. 1407) that the family was at P.E.I. (a popular way station) during 1752, at Chédabuctou (Halifax) around 1763, and then at Miquelon, 1767. Arsenault says at p. 1410 that Pierre [#112221], by 1766, was located at Miquelon, and by 1766 at Chezzetcook. The family is clearly at St. Pierre & Miquelon, as they were listed on May 15th, 1767. [Canadian Archives Report (CAR); vol. II (Ottawa: S.E. Dawson, 1906), Appendix 'A', p. 174.] "Joseph Landry veuf [widower] de Marie (venu de Chédabuctou) 49 ans; Anne Landry, sa fille, 27 ans; Alexandre, son fils, 13 ans; Baptiste, son père (veuf de Marie Boudrot), 76 ans.

    [36] See Holland. Though, it should be pointed out that, according to Arsenault, there was a Joseph who moved to Bécancour, Quebec and married there in January of 1773.

    [38] Your author's father; married Agnes Marie Morrison: and thereby, a pure Nova Scotian French line combined with a pure Nova Scotian Scottish line; to make, one pure Nova Scotian, your author, Peter Michael Landry (b.1941 at Halifax).

    [40] See Holland.

    [41] I have a copy of the grant and a plan among my papers; also noted on crown index sheet #118.

    [42] One of Paul's (b.c.1799) sons, I believe, is Paul (b.1837), my grand-father. Paul (b.c.1799) married Domitile Forrest. (Church records.)

    [43] From the church records at Arichat. This Paul is your compiler's grand-father. Donald A. Landry son of Douglas Paul Landry (deceased) all of Sydney, N.S., wrote: "My grandfather's brother was a Daniel Landry born in 1862. He (Daniel) was the oldest of seven children born between 1862 and 1878 to Paulycarpe (Paul) and Domitelle (? or Danielle). The children's names were Daniel (62), Louisa (68), Henry (73), Jane (74), Paulycarpe (my grandfather -b. 1874), Victoria (77) and Caroline (78). This information is from the Canadian census of 1881. They were residents of D'Escousse, Ile Madame and members of St. Hyacinthe's Parish."

    [44] See Arsenault, p. 1410 & p. 2280.

    [45] See Holland. Two Pierre Landrys show up on the census list of 1811. The first is located at Arichat and is treated separately down below as the son of Alexis. The other, Pierre (l'abbe), mariner, is located at Grand Digue with only two in the household, both over the age of 60; two cattle, four sheep, and one horse.

    [46] See Holland.

    [47] See p. 575 of Fergusson's work, op. cit.. Further, there is a "Pierre Landris" who received a crown grant in 1805 at Seaview (Sporting Mountain). (See p. 614 of Ferguson's work.)
