J`ai des notes sur Louis qui diffère de tes dates j'ai mes sources d'identifié:
There was only one family of the Allain name in Acadia: that of Louis Allain, a blacksmith and merchant probably born in France about 1655.Allain was well educated and appears to have settled in Port-Royal about 1687.
This was not his first trip to North America - two years before he purchased a property in Wells, Maine.On this 100 acres property there was a house and a third of a sawmill. A few month before purchasing his Maine property, Louis bought a share of
50 percent in a ship called Endeavour. Since he spoke English fairly well, trade with the New England merchants was no problem.
Around 1689, Louis married Marguerite Bourg, daughter of Antoine Bourg and Antoinette Landry.The marriage took place in Port Royal.She bore two children: Pierre, who settled at Grand-Pré, and Marie who in 1715 married Nicholas Gauthier, a leading
Acadian personality of his day.
Louis sold his old Wells property after 1720.He settled in Blelair, in the vicinity of Port-Royal.There he built a grain mill and a saw mill.In addition, he plied this trade in a coastal vessel trading with the Bostonians.
Louis formed a partnership with Jean-Baptiste Naquin - called L'Étoile - who had also married a Marguerite Bourg and who lived on the upper part of the Port-Royal river.When Jean-Baptiste Naquin died in 1706, Louis Allain bought his property.
Louis corresponded with the governor of New France, Pierre Rigaud de Vaudreuil.However some of his letters sent by the French governor fell into the hands of the British governor of Annapolis Royal, Jean Doucett.Recognized as a businessman with a
strong character, Louis was used by the French authorities as a negociator for the exchange of French and Acadian prisoners in Boston.
Louis retired from business at an advanced age and passed on his property to his daughter Marie and her husband Nicolas Gauthier.Louis Allain's possessions included mills, houses, a store and several ships. After Louis Allain died at Port-Royal on
July 16, 1737 Nicolas Gauthier continued his father-in-law's commerce and became one of the wealthiest Acadians in Port-Royal.
In 1744, when France and Britain went to war again, Duvivier led an expedition to capture Port-Royal.He established his headquarters on Nicolas Gauthier's property at Belair.The attempt failed and Gauthier was accused of collaboration with the
enemy with the result that the Annapolis Royal government confiscated all his possessions.He had to flee with his family to Ile Saint-Jean (Prince Edward Island).
Pierre Allain, son of Louis and of Marguerite Bourg, settled at Grand-Pré where he married Marguerite LeBlanc in 1717.He was likely in partnership or employed by his brother-in-law, Nicolas Gauthier.He is presumed to have been a navigator like his
father, and he died at Brest during a voyage to France around 1745.
Pierre had thirteen children, including four boys: Louis, Pierre, Benjamin and Jean-Baptiste.Louis Allain married in 1748, at Beaubassin, Anne Léger, and settled at Petitcodiac, New Brunswick.Fearing deportation, he sought refuge with his family at
Miramichi which was under the protection of commander Charles de Boishébert.He later settled at Bouctouche leaving his son Michel, married to Josette Savoie, at Néguac.
Pierre married Catherine Hébert and after the Deportation they settled in Louisiana.
Benjamin married Marie-Rose Bujold and settled at Carleton in the Gaspé peninsula where his descendants are numerous.Jean-Baptiste married Marguerite Cormier, in 1762, at Bécancourt.Jean-Baptiste was at Saint-Ours, Que., in 1782.
