     Joseph Robichaud was born circa 1704 at Port-Royal, Acadia, New France.1,2 He was the son of Charles Robichaud dit Cadet and Marie-Claire Bourg.

Joseph Robichaud married Claire LeBlanc, age 15 , daughter of André LeBlanc and Marie Dugas, on 30 April 1726 at St-Charles-des-Mines Paroisse, Grand-Pré, Colony of Nova Scotia, British North America.1,2,3 Joseph and Clairemoved. Joseph and Claire settled in the region of Cobequid (near Truro) at Village des Cadet after their marriage.4 The family was deported from Isle Saint-Jean to France in 1758. "They settled in the tiny village of Pleudihen on the outskirts of Saint-Servan and, like other Acadian families, were supported for some years by the French government. But they had difficulty adapting to their new life and dreamed of returning home."3,4 In the 1759 Census, Joseph was recorded living in Saint-Malo, Ille-et-Vilaine, Brittany, France.3 Joseph and Claire were found on a passenger list arriving in Saint-Malo, Ille-et-Vilaine, Brittany, France, in 1759.2,4 Joseph Robichaud was buried on 12 March 1759 at Saint-Servan, Ille-et-Vilaine, Brittany, France.2

Compeller's Notes:
The baptism of Joseph Robichaud, probably born in early 1704, is not in the Parish Record. The absence of Joseph’s expected baptism and the results of the DNA analysis strongly suggest that it is Joseph Robichaud who would have been born of a conception outside marriage."3
