Genealogy of the family of Pierre Lejeune and Marie Doucet"
Pierre Lejeune dit Briard arrived in Acadia on September 23, 1651. He would have been recruited between March and June, by the new governor of Acadia, Charles de Saint-Etienne, Sieur de La Tour, appointed by the King on February 27, 1651. In New France, the employment contracts had a duration of three years. Therefore, Pierre Lejeune could not get married before the end of his contract, which was in 1654. That's when he married Marie Doucet, the daughter of the Major of Port Royal garrison, Germain Doucet and a French woman (a European: DNA haplotype "T2").
"According to recent research, Pierre Lejeune was the son of Charles Lejeune and Jeanne Vaudet. Pierre was baptized on November 12, 1628, in Thorigny-sur-Marne, in Brie (hence the nickname of Briard), in the department of Seine-et-Marne (77), France."
I invite you to visit your profiles and update your profiles to reflect the correct earliest paternal line ancestor for this line. Based on the updated information from André-Carl Vachon, who has assisted with our study, that person is "Charles Lejeune."
