My LaBauve history begins in 1659 in with Louis Noel De La Bauve born in France. Louis-Noël (de?) Labauve, called Noël, came to Acadia by 1678, the year he married Marie, daughter of René Rimbault of Port-Royal. They settled at Grand-Pré and then at Chignecto before moving back to the Minas Basin. They had a dozen children, including seven sons, five of whom created families of their own. Four of their daughters married into the Bastarache, Levron, Hébert dit Baguette, and LeBlanc families. One of their daughters, the one who later married an Hébert, had an illegitimate daughter at Port-Royal in 1713.
In 1755, descendants of Louis-Noël Labauve could be found at Minas, Chignecto, Chepoudy, Port-Royal, and on Île St.-Jean
In 1765 the LaBauve Family Started its migration to Louisiana.
