Guillaume Blanchard was born about 1651 in Port-Royal, Acadie. His parents were Jean Blanchard and Radegonde Lambert  with Guillaume and Huguette listed together with Jean and Radegonde in 1678.
He married Huguette Gougeon around 1672 in Port-Royal. Together they had 12 children:
Unnamed Infant Blanchard ca 1676-
Jean BLANCHARD ca 1687-1701/
Guillaume and Huguette lived with his parents in 1678 and still in 1686. By 1693 his parents had died and Guillaume and Huguette had quite a large property of 30 arpents, 30 cattle and 40 sheep. They also had 8 of their unmarried children, and their daughter Marie and her husband and child living with them.. By 1698 their last baby was just 6 months old, and they were still living in Port Royal. Daughter Marie and her husband had moved out. They had acquired a little more property.
With Pierre Thibodeau he started "Village des Blanchard," what became Shipodie (Chipoudy) currently Hillsborough NB in 1698-99. He established two of his sons and a daughter with her husband at Petitcodiac. But there was controversy and in the end, the Blanchards had possession but Michel Leneuf de la Valliere (the elder) was granted seigneurial rights, a disappointment to the Blanchards.
Other notable events 
Aug 1695: Guillaume Blanchard took the oath of allegiance to the King of England at Port-Royal; he made his mark on the document.

27 Dec 1699: Chartering of a ship by Guillaume Blanchard to his associates Jean Labat and Christophe Cahouet, at a rate of thirty livres per month.
2 Oct 1702: Extract from a report by Mathieu de Goutin concerning the founding of Les Mines, requesting that Guillaume Blanchard be granted a half league on either side of the Petitcoudiac River: "the said Blanchard has a sailing vessel, and grown sons, sons-in-law and nephews, who will put the Pecoudiak the land along the Petitcoudiac River to use and will settle there many people, and in three years the colony will draw support from them ..."?
