The latest research indicates Jacques Bourgeois was most likely born in La Ferté-Gaucher, near Paris, as the son of a widow, Marguerite Bourgeois Grandjehan and raised under the maiden name of his mother. In the registers of the parish of Saint-Romain a baptismal certificate for Jacob Bourgeois was found indicating he was born on January 9, 1621, the son of Marguerite Bourgeois and the deceased Nicolas Grandjehan.
 
Although, other accounts indicate that two Jacques (father and son) immigrated to  Acadia, and the father later returned to France (as indicated in the account from "Acadian Decendants").

Research has also identified five of Jacques' siblings: Johannis (August 1614), Charola (November 1615), Nicolas (January 1617), Catharina (September 1618), and Barbara (January 1620) from the parish registers of La Ferté-Gaucher.

First Generation

Jacques (called Jacob) Bourgeois was born about 1620, and died in 1701 in Port Royal, Acadia. He married Jeanne Trahan in Port-Royal, Acadia, daughter of Guillaume Trahan and Françoise Corbineau. He arrived in Acadia about 1643 aboard the St-Francois from La Rochelle, France. His wife Jeanne arrived on the Saint Jehan in 1636. He was apparently trained as a surgeon by the Order of Malta.

The Port-Royal census of 1671 indicates that Jacob (Jacques) Bourgeois druggist, 50; and wife Jeanne Trahan; children: Jeanne 27, Charles 25, Germain 21, Marie 19, Guillaume 16, Marguerite 13, Francois 12, Anne 10, Marie 7, Jeanne; owned 33 cattle and 24 sheep.

The Port-Royal census of 1678 indicates that Jacques Bourgeois and wife Jeanne Trahan; children: Marie 15, Jeanne 12; owned 20 acres, 15 cattle.

The Port-Royal census of 1686 mentions Jacob Bourgeois 67, Jeanne Trahan 57; child: Guillaume 31; 20 arpents.

The Port-Royal census of 1693 mentions Jacob Bourgeois 74, Jeanne Trahan 64, Jeanne (granddaughter) 3; 15 cattle, 20 sheep, 15 pigs, 40 arpents, 1 gun.

The Beaubassin census of 1701 mentions Sieur Jacques Bourgeois 82, Jeanne Trahan his wife 72; Germain Bourgeois 48; Madeleine Dugas his wife 34; Guillaume 24; Agnes 12; 22 cattle, 15 hogs, 21 arpents, 3 guns, 1 servant.

Acadian Descendants, Vol I, by Janet Jehn

Before leaving France, Bourgeois had entered the medical profession. He came to Port-Royal in 1642 with 18 families that Gov. Menou d'Aulnay brought with him on one of his voyages, Bourgeois' father, also named Jacques, was an army officer at Port-Royal and the brother-in-law of Germaine Doucet, Sieur de La Verdure, Aulnay's assistant....

While Jacques senior was returned to France, his son remained in Acadia where he became the ancestor of a large number of descendants, In 1643 he had married Jeanne, Guillaume Trahan's daughter, who was born in France in 1631; they had ten children; seven girls and three boys.

At Port-Royal, Jacques became a farmer and shipbuilder. He traded with the Bostonians, particularly with John Nelson and William Phips; he learned their language, and was the interpreter for the French in their dealings with the English. In 1672 he sold part of his holdings at Port-Royal in order to settle, with his sons Charles and Germain, and two of his sons-in-law, in the Chigneto Basin, thus becoming the first promoter of settlement in this region; he built a flour mill and a saw mill there. A few years later, in 1676, the region was made into a Seigneury, the holder of which was Michel Leneuf de la Valliere (the elder), a nobleman born at Trois-Rivieres; the new fief, 100 square leagues in extent, was named Beaubassin. As LaValliere brought in settlers and indentured employees from Canada, two distinct establishments adjoined each other at Beaubassin; but a clause in the title to the land grant protected the interests of Jacques Bourgeois and the other Acadian settlers established on the domain; it was not long before the two elements of the population merged into one....

The distinguished colonist had settled at Port-Royal again before 1699; he died there, an octogenarian, in 1701. The family name was perpetuated by two of his three sons: Charles, born in 1646, who married Anne Dugas in 1668; and Germain, born about 1650, who married his first wife, Marguerite Belliveau, in 1673 and his second wife, Madeleine Dugas, in 1682; the third son, Guillaume, left only a daughter.

Acadian Memorial Archive

Held captive at Ristigouche, in present-day New Brunswick, November 1759. He and his family appear to have been prisoners of war at Fort Edward, Nova Scotia, on October 5, 1761. British records suggest that his family remained as a prisoners of war at Fort Edward (Windsor), Nova Scotia, after he was sent to Halifax, Nova Scotia, with the other able-bodied Acadian men, July 12, 1762. British records from Fort Edward, dated August 9, 1762, indicate that three memers of his family were held as prisoners, but the family received rations for only two persons.

Received from New Orleans merchant Antoine de St. Maxent a receipt for 1,681.08 livres in Canadian paper money sent to Bordeaux on behalf of the Louisiana Acadians for possible redemption by the French crown. (The attempt was evidently unsuccessful.) Identified in the April 9, 1766, census of Cabannocé as the head of a household including his wife, Marie Girouard (28 years of age) and his daughter Marie (14 years of age). The family occupied a tract of land measuring six arpents frontage on the left bank of the Mississippi River. The census also indicates that Joseph Bourgeois owned one sheep and one firearm. Identified in the September 14, 1769, census of St. Jacques de Cabannocé as the thirty-three-year-old head of a household that included the following persons: Marie Girouard, his wife, 32 years old; and Marie Broussard, an orphan, 2 years old. The members of his household occupied a tract of land with five arpents frontage. They owned seven cows, two horses, twenty-five hogs, and one musket. The January 23, 1770, muster roll of the First Company of the Acadian Coast militia unit indicates that he was a fusilier, a resident of the left bank of the Mississippi River, a thirty-three-year-old married man. He resided three-fourths of a league from the residence of Commandant Nicolas Verret. Bourgeois served as the local churchwarden, ca. February 16, 1776.

He and his family owned a tract of land with six arpents frontage on the Mississippi River. They also owned one slave, sixteen cows, and four horses. On October 29, 1784, he joined with four other Acadian leaders in denouncing the tyranny of the local curé. In the October 29, 1784, memorandum, Bourgeois is identified as the local church warden. On July 28, 1786, he joined with numerous other St. Jacques de Cabannocé residents in signing a petition urging the newly appointed local priest to honor the deceased former priest's debt to the parish's church building fund. On May 17, 1795, he participated in a meeting of the Cabannocé District notables to discuss means of increasing local security in the wake of the abortive 1795 Pointe Coupée slave uprising.
