- This room is named after the hostess' paternal family name. All the Doirons (& Durants), in North America, family lineages can be traced back to the one who arrived in the New World aboard the ship l'Oranger on August 3, 1670 in Fort Pentagoet at the mouth of the Penobscot River. His name was Jean d'Oiron. Around the year 1671 he married Marie de Canol, who also came to the New World aboard the l'Oranger. Around 1693 he remarried to Marie Trahan. Jean had 19 children between the two marriages, 12 boys & 7 girls.
- This room is named after the host's paternal family name. The Benoits were one of the founding families of Tracadie arriving about 1772 from Arichat on Île Madame, Cape Breton. The Benoits began settling in Pomquet due to marriages to the local inhabitants. By 1794, there were eight families of Benoits in Pomquet and Tracadie. The Benoits from these communities are descendants of Guillaume Benoit and Marie-Josephe Gauterot, who were married in 1729 in Pisiquit (Windsor, N.S.). In 1750, the family took refuge in Île Royale (Cape Breton). While there Guillaume constructed and operated a sawmill as there was an abundant supply of softwood and hardwood trees. Today some of the descendants now go by the name Bennett.
- This room is named after the hostess' maternal family name. The Vincents are one of the founding families of Pomquet. Simon Vincent his wife Théotiste Cyr and their daughter Félicité-Jeanne arrived in Pomquet in 1773. Simon and his brother, Germain, were deported from Île-St. Jean (PEI) to St. Malo, France arriving on January 23, 1759. Simon and Théotiste were married in St. Servan, Côtes du Nord, France on February 11, 1772. Although there are many descendants of this couple, there is only one family bearing the Vincent name in Pomquet. The Vincents have occupied the same land grant for over 200 years at Pomquet Point.
- This room is named after the host's maternal family name. The Boudreau family first came to Pomquet between 1785 & 1794, Jean-Cyprien Boudrot and his wife Elizabeth Broussard along with their first two children. Although Jean-Cyprien was born in Mordreaux, France his parents Basile & Marguerite Girouard (grand-daughter of Jean d'Oiron's 2
marriage above) were married in Pisiquit, Acadie (Windsor, Nova Scotia), but were deported with their children from St. Pierre du Nord (PEI) in November of 1758. The most probable reason why Jean-Cyprien came to Pomquet was because most of his wife's, Elizabeth Broussard, family and relations were already settled in Pomquet. Although the family name no longer appears in Pomquet it is carried in places in New Hampshire and Massachusetts and most families in Pomquet can trace their ancestry to this couple.
