Terriot’s in the Acadian Colony

Before entering into the life of the young Acadian, Charles Terriault in the Madawaska no-man’s territory, ‘DESTINATION: MADAWASKA’ , a bilingual book (French and English), presents a short history of the founding of the Acadian colony and life of the Terriot family in early Acadia in the 1630’s.


The short history continues by connecting each generation of the Acadian family up to Charles, the 7th generation who was born and raised during the early days of the 19th century in St Paschal de Kamouraska, in Québec.

This story as told by DESTINATION: MADAWASKA is interesting whether you are a member of the Terriot/Theriot/Theriault family or not because it tells the story of Acadia, the story of the expulsion of the Acadians and the story of the migration of the Acadians as it applied to all Acadians. It is an important part of our North American history.

The book is available on Amazon.com now. Order a copy for your children or grandchildren. They may not learn this history from their school.

  1. Thank you for sharing with me Joe. I enjoy reading about the Theriaults even if they don’t know how to spell our names. (that’s a joke son). I do enjoy reading about our family history. Keep up the good work. Hugs Mickey
