"Headed to St. Augustine today for the Menorcan Festival. Will post pictures for all my family and cousins from the Cannette side of the family. The original Menorcan's who came to Florida were indentured servants who were treated as slaves and had to appeal to the Governor of Florida for their Freedom in 1777. They left the plantation in New Smyrna under Turnbull and walked all the way to St. Augustine. Our great ancestor Ramon Canet came from Menorca and his ancestors great great Uncles and Aunts were part of this group. I have pictures of the Pons house which belong to a ancestor of our great (x howmany) grandmother."--Judy Lepoma, Facebook post, March 9, 2013

666 Started using last name "Hilton" as a teenager.

My grandfather did know his dad Charles, but they did not get along.  My grandfather went by Gutierrez until he went to join the navy and Charles would not sign the papers that had to be signed since my grandfather was under age.  That is when my grandfather started using the Hilton name.  He signed up as "Willie Hilton" and his stepfather gave the approval for him to join the navy.  My dad also said that as a kid, he and his siblings used to go to the water slides on front beach and they were allowed to go for free because the owner was a relative of Charles.  My grandfather was the illegitimate child, so I guess that is why there are no records of him in the family.  He was born 5 months after Charles' daughter.

668 Stephen A. White, DICTIONNAIRE GENEALOGIQUE DES FAMILLES ACADIENNES; 1636-1714; Moncton, New Brunswick, Centre d'Etudes Acadiennes, 1999, 2 vols.; p. 718; own copy. #1: Francois GIROUARD dit LA VARANNE, born around 1621, a "laboureur." He married around 1647 to Jeanne AUCOIN, sister of Michelle AUCOIN (married to Michel BOUDROT). On the 1671 census at Port Royal he is 50 years old; in 1686, age 70 years [sic]. He died before the census of 1693.

Web page of Univ. of Moncton, Centre d'etudes acadiennes, by Stephen White, on the 37 Acadian families hosting the 1994 World Congress; orig. published by La Societe historique acadienne, CAHIERS; vol. 25, no. 2&3 (Apr-Sep 1994), at . Francois GIROUARD, born in France around 1621, arrived in Acadia in 1640. He married around 1647 Jeanne AUCOIN; five children.

Arsenault, H&G, p. 567 (Port Royal). Spelled GIROUARD, but under variants also listed GIROIR. Born in 1621, doubtlessly originally from La Chausse'e, department of Vienne in the Loudun region of France (footnote cites Massignon). He arrived in Acadia around 1640, married around 1647.

NAME: Spelled GIROUER on son Germain's marriage record.

CENSUS-NAME: 1671, Port Royal, Acadia [p. 10], age 50 years, "Laboreur." Living with wife 40. Of their 5 children, 3 are married. They have 16 cattle, 6 sheep, and 8 arpans of land.

CENSUS: 1678, Clarence J. d'Entremont, "Recensement de Port-Royal," in MEMOIRES DE LA SOCIETE GENEALOGIQUE CANADIENNE-FRANCAISE; vol. 22, no. 4; p. 229; sent by PERSI in Jun 1999. On Folio 18: Francois GIROUER, listed with Jeanne AUCOIN, and Germain GIROUER, age 22 years. They have 15 arpents of land, with 18 head of cattle.

CENSUS: 1686, Port Royal, Acadia, age 70 [born in 1616?]. A note after he and his wife Jeanne AUCOIN's names states: "I a eu 5 enfans dont le recensement est ce-? apres." They own 1 gun, 3 arpens land, 9 cattle, 12 sheep and 7 pigs.

NAME: Son-in-law Pierre RICHARD gave Francois' name in 1767 as Jacques GIROUARD, dit La VARANNE [Varenne?], who came from France with his wife Jeanne AUCOIN, who settled at Port Royal and both died there. [Was he mistaken? Jacques GIROUARD dit LA VARENNE is the name of wife Madeleine's brother, son of Francois, born 1648.] (See "Acadians of Belle-Isle-en-Mer," in NEW ORLEANS GENESIS.)

BIRTH-NAME-MARRIAGE-CENSUS: Clarence J. d'Entremont, "The GIROUARD Family," in LE REVEIL ACADIEN; vol. XII, no. 3 (Aug 1996); p. 63. The head of the Acadian branch of the family is Francois GIROUARD, but he is not the Francois who is found in the archives of La Chausse'e, France, since he was there in 1679 as well, in an act from a Loudon notary. (Reference: E453/118-119) He could have been from any of several La Varenne locations in France, since that was the name given him on the Belle-Ile-en-Mer genealogical declarations. According to those, as well, he and Jeanne AUCOIN were already married at the time of their arrival in Acadia, which would place them with the contingent of colonists in the "200 Elite Men" of Jacques de Poix, Sieur de Saint-Mas, brought over in 1651.

From: Girouard Family Home page

There are two Girouard families in North America. We can assume that they are ancestors from the same family in old France. This focus of this web site is the first Girouard family to come from France and settle in North America around 1650. This was Francois Girouard and his wife Jeanne Aucoin. They left France and came to North America to live in Port Royal, Acadia, New France. Today this is now known as Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, Canada. The group of French people that established this colony have came to be known as the Acadians.

The Acadians were a peaceful people that found the Bay of Fundy environment to be easy to manage by creating dikes on the inlets. The Acadians families helped each other and lived peaceably with the native Indians, the Micmacs. The rule of this new land passed a number of times between the French and the English,but all the Acadians wanted to do was to be neutral in the conflicts. They refused to take sides and sign an oath of allegiance to the British Crown. In 1755 an English Governor, Charles Lawrence had 10,000 Acadians deported from their beloved Acadian homeland, burned their villages, and killed their animals in case they somehow returned. They were dispersed to various locations on the Atlantic seaboard and England. In some cases families were split up never to see each other again and many died

The Acadian Girouard Family split into 3 groups, those who found their way back to Canada: Quebec and New Brunswick, and the third in a Spanish colony which we now know as Louisiana. A large number of the descendants from the 2 Canadian groups came into New England during the expansion of the textile mills in the 1850s. Their descendants have now spread across the US.

"I also remember ocassionally going to Aunt Lottie's home to visit, also remember everyday at exactly 2 o'clock she & Aunt Carrie would go to my great grandmother's house for coffee - I thought it was kind of cute that they would bring 1 small bottle of coca cola & split between the 2 of them before drinking coffee. Your grandmother was always impeccably dressed." -- Memory of Deborah Pitalo Snyder (great-granddaughter of Lenora "Nora" Duggan Scarbrough), in email to HJG 3/15/2011.
