  • Notes 
    • He was a twin of Pierre.

      During the deportation of 1755, Ambroise and his wife Marguerite was a board a transport ship, the Pembroke, which was bound for North Caroli na. A revolt on board, led by Charles Belliveau, of the Acadian men ag ainst their English captors succeeded and the ship was turned around a nd sailed up the St. John River where the Acadians disembarked. Some o f the Acadians travelled on foot to Qué bec where Ambroise died durin g a smallpox epidemic that hit the area two years later, claiming th e lives of many of the Acadians who had escaped the deportations.
