LeBoeuf Genealogy
     Although the LeBoeuf name is not Acadian, most LeBoeufs have Acadian bloodlines and most Louisiana LeBoeufs that I know consider themselves Cajun.  Most of Francois Dominique's descendants married into Acadian-Cajun families and have inhabited south Louisiana for generations.  This page will look at the history and genealogy of the LeBoeuf family.

LeBoeuf's in early Canada
     Around 1666, Jacques LEBOEUF left his home in Giray, France (near La Rochelle).  He was the son of Thomas LEBOEUF and Nicolle GAZELLE.  He moved to Montreal.  Though other LEBOEUFs may have come to the New World, Jacques was the progenitor to many of today's LEBOEUF descendants.
     His first wife, Anne Javelot ("fille de Roi") died after two years of marriage.  Neither of their 2 children survived to adulthood (though I found a marriage for Jean???). 
     Jacques remarried Antoinette Lenoir (another "fille de Roi").  Their first child, a girl, was born and died the same day.  They had 2 sons that are the progenitors of many LEBOEUFs in Canada and Louisiana.  Son Jean Baptiste married Therese LIMOUSIN and they had nine children, all of whom stayed in Canada. 
     Son Pierre married Marie Francoise AUZON and they had ten children.  Two of these children moved to other French territory in North America ... Louisiana. (Tanguay V. 1: 357; Gerbel 1976, 350)
LeBoeuf's Move to Louisiana
     Pierre's sons Charles Hyacinthe and Francois Dominque moved down to the Louisiana territory in the late 1740s.  They settled along the Mississippi River in St. John the Baptist parish, where they set up farming operations.  (Tanguay V. 5: 221; Gerbel 1976, 350)   We can find records of their dealings in the parish.  (Conrad 1972, 3, 7, 59)  According to a census in 1763 (Voorhies 1973, 82), Charles Hyacinthe had 4 ox, 12 cows, and 21 arpents of land on the Mississippi River; Francois Dominique had 2 ox, 6 cows, and 8 arpents of land nearby.
     Charles Hyacinthe bought some land in 1752 and was given land along the river by Balthazar Marx (his father-in-law) the following year.  In 1762 he bought a farm for 3000 livres.  But things didn't work out so well.  He and a Pierre Vaudry bought some land from Fournier & Saint Pé (N.O. merchants) in 1769, but they must have had problems paying it off.  In 1770, the land and effects were sold (by Francois LeBoeuf, acting as an agent for Fournier & Saint Pé).  Charles Hyacinthe  left the area in 1770 to become a hunter.  He was in the Ouachita area in the 1790s.  Baptisms of the children of Simon, Charles, and Andre were recorded between 1795 and 1802 at the Avoyelles Post (though most of the children were born in the Ouachita area).  (Ducote 1980, 49, 50)
     Francois Dominique's family remained along the Mississippi River.  The 1766 census lists Francois Dominique as having five sons (but doesn't name them).  In the 1780s, Francois Dominique's family moved to St. James parish.  His sons started their families on land near present-day Vacherie.

     There were several other (unrelated) LEBOEUFs who came to Louisiana; most of these left no descendants we know of.   For example, a Rene LEBOEUF was at Mobile in 1713. (DeVille, 1968s, 45)  There was a Rene Henri LEBOEUF and family at the Natchitoches Post from the 1740s to the 1780s, but we can't find records of his descendants. (E. Mills 1977 38, 65, 132, 148; E. Mills 1981, 27, 39, 44)   At the beginning of the 19th century, a Marcial LEBOEUF debarked at New Orleans from Gironde, France.  He obtained land around Pointe a la Hache on the Mississippi River and along Bayou Lafourche.  (ASP 2: 323, 415)
