Jeanne Aucoin is the ancestral matriarch of the Acadian Aucoin/Girouard family. Jeanne was baptized on November 26, 1630 at the parish of Sainte-Marguerite at La Rochelle, Aunis (today Charente-Maritime), France. Her parents were Martin Aucoin and Barbe Minguet and her god-parents were Arnaud Gyon and Jeanne Riou.
According to the 1767 depositions of their descendants, Jeanne came to Acadia with her husband François, but it's unclear if that means they were already married when they came.
Around 1647 Jeanne married François Girouard. Between about 1648 and 1660, Jeanne gave birth to five children: Jacques (dit Jacob), Marie, Marie-Madeleine, Germain, and Anne (Anne Charlotte).. They raised their family in Port Royal as they were found there in 1671, 1678, 1686 and1693.
Jeanne Aucoin, widow of Girouer le Pere, passed away in Apr 1718, aged more than 90 years and was buried 18 April 1718 at Port Royal, Acadia.
