OUR ORIGINS:

Among the many THIBAULTS who came from France and Switzerland, at least sixteen of them took root in America. The most prolific ancestor was François Thibault of Ile de Re, an island located in the Atlantic Ocean, four kilometers west of La Rochelle, France.  He arrived in Quebec in 1665, married Elisabeth-Agnes Lefebvre at Sainte-Anne-du-Petit-Cap, now Beaupre, in 1670, then settled in Cap-Saint-Ignace on the south shore where he passed away in 1724.
