d’Hauterive, Billaud & Allied Families: BK 1, CH 1



D’HAUTERIVE – “This would have been a place name.  Jean Antoine Bernard D’Hauterive assisted the authorities in the settlement of the early Acadians in the Attakapas area.  The name would have been Jean Antoine Bernard of the Hauterive (the high bank).” – from “The Origin of Southern Louisiana Family Names” in Acadiana Profile, Vol. 11.  Bernard seems to have been the family name.




The first D’Hauterive of record in the United States, who might possibly be related to our family, is RENAUD D’HAUTERIVE.  This gentleman was born in 1691 and was from Tours, the capital of the French province of Touraine, France.  He was the son of the “grand voyer” (highway commissioner or surveyor) of Tours.

“Corporal d’auterive” is on a list of those who embarked on the ship Marechal de Villars on January 26, 1719 for Louisiana from La Rochelle, France.  Later in 1719 he is listed as Commandant at Fort Saint Jean Baptiste des Natchitoches, Louisiana, during the absence of Louis Juchereau de St. Denis, its long-time Commandant.  On January 21, 1721 he is included on a “List of Officers who command 25 Companies of Infantry which the Company maintains in Louisiana – at Natchitoches replacing M. Blondel who has died.”  On November 23, 1723 he was a member of a Council of War held at the Fort of the Natchez which decided to grant peace to the Natchez Indians.  This information is from the Mississippi Provincial Archives, 1704-1743, by Rowland and Sanders.

From the “History of Acadiana” by Jim Bradshaw in the Lafayette Daily Advertiser of September 30, 1997:  “Opelousas owes its origin to a military post.  In 1719, Capt. Renauld D’Hauterive sent Ensign Nicholas Chauvin de la Freniere and two others to establish a military presence in the area.”

Renaud is found in an April 1, 1730 “List of Officers in Louisiana and Their Assignments” (Captain Renault D’Hauterive-New Orleans) and is mentioned on December 2, 1731 in a “List of Persons Comprising the Four Companies Stationed at New Orleans” (Renault D’Hauterive–Captain-absent in France).  He returned to Louisiana in 1731.  The above information is from First Families of Louisiana, by Glenn Conrad.

By 1731 he is confirmed as owner of a twenty-two arpent front tract of land above the city of New Orleans and on the same side of the river, on which there was a brickyard – almost certainly part of what later became the D’Auberville plantation.  Referring to a plantation on the Bayou St. John, “A map of the early 1730’s in the Library of Congress….marks a house on the former Langlois property as belonging to Capitaine du St. Derive, no doubt the abbreviation of Renaud D’Hauterive, subsequent owner of the Langlois plantation” – from Bayou St. John in Colonial Louisiana, by Edna B. Freiberg.

From the Census Tables of the French Colony of Louisiana, 1699-1733, by Charles Maduell: “Renault D’Hauterive purchased land from the widow Duval whom he married and by contract with M. de Bienville.  Listed in 1731 Census of Inhabitants along the River Mississippi was the brick manufacture of D’Hauterives, which included: 1 European worker, 1 man capable of bearing arms, 36 negro slaves and 2 negro children”.

On March 24, 1734 there is a sale of property of the deceased Sr. de Vilainville, “adjudication to Sr. D’Hauterive of said plantation on the river, measuring 12 arpents, frontage by ordinary depth for sum of 400 livres which he shall pay cash with costs.”

In the List by Bienville of Officers in Louisiana, on April 25, 1734: Renaudan town of that name near the field of battle, and was fought May 20, 1736.

D’Hauterive was in the second campaign against these Indians in 1740.  He was a member of the council of war, and advised the retreat of the French, from the country of the Chickasaw Indians, which advice was followed.”

Quoted in the Mississippi Provincial Archives, by Rowland and Sanders is a a letter dated June 29, 1736 from Bienville to Maurepas in Paris: “My lord will permit me to call his attention to the fact that on the entire staff here only Mr. Diron and I are decorated with the Cross of St. Louis.  I should be infinitely satisfied if he would procure one for Chevalier de Noyan, the major, another for Mr. D’Auterive, a former captain, who were both wounded in tD’Hauterive is listed as the “son of the surveyor of Tours in Touraine, served in France as Lieutenant….the ‘attache’ to the ‘bien faire’, came to the colony in 1720 as Captain….of good conduct and representation – age of 43 years.”

From “Valliere-Vaugine Family” by Myra Vaughan, in the Arkansas Historical Quarterly, Vol. 15: “In 1736, in an account of the sanguinary and disastrous battle, fought near the present site of the city of Memphis, by the French against the Chickasaw Indians, D’Hauterive was wounded, and M. de Bienville speaks of him as ‘a Captain of Grenadiers’.  This battle was called Ackia, from the Indihe attack on the Chickasaws….These favors which it would please his Majesty to grant would fall upon good officers and would make no small impression on the others in the circumstance that we are in of a very active war.”

Gayarre, in his History of Louisiana, gives a 1740 list of the French officers, and in the report of Bienville accompanying this list, he says that Dauterive had been for a long time in the French service, before coming to Louisiana, and that he was a Captain when he came to Louisiana in 1720.  In 1736 he was made Chevalier of the Order of St. Louis….and in 1740 ‘then fifty-two years of age’, he was Major of New Orleans, a position of trust, which carried with it a salary of 1,200 livres per annum.”

From Mississippi Valley Melange, by Winston De Ville: “Although all male members of Louisiana nobility were by no means knights in the ‘Royal and Military Order of St. Louis’, that distinction was the highest honor to which a Louisiana colonial could reasonably aspire.”  Renaud D’Hauterive is described in 1740 by Jean Baptiste Le Moyne, Sieur de Bienville, the Governor of the Colony, as “D’Hauterive: He understands service and is faithful in performing well without prejudice; good conduct and of fine appearance.”

Renaud D’Hauterive was married in 1736 in New Orleans to CHARLOTTE BOSSUA, the widow of Francois Orbanne (Baume) Duval, the cashier of the Company of the Indies which was the private corporation commissioned by the King of France to govern the Louisiana colony.  Charlotte Bossua Duval and her daughter, Charlotte, had embarked from La Rochelle, France, on May 27, 1719 on the Marie, arriving in New Orleans in 1720.

Following his marriage to the widow Duval, D’Hauterive negotiated to pay Francois Duval’s debts to the Company.  In the Registry dated January 21, 1737, in a declaration by Mr. Renaud D’Hauterive, Marine Captain, acting as husband of Dame Charlotte Bossua, widow of Francois Orbanne Duval, it says that “he protests against appraisement of the lot formerly owned by the estate of deceased Le Blanc, sold to Mr. D’Auseville, as this land belongs to the Succession of the deceased Duval who acquired it from Sieur Brusle, who was then Agent of the Company of the Indies, on April 7, 1724.”  On 11 Oct 1737 D’Hauterive sold most of this land to Sieur Broutin, Engineer of the King, for 2,000 livres.

From Bayou St. John in Colonial Louisiana, by Edna B. Freiberg: “In 1737 Louis Brazillier quadrupled his holdings on the bayou by purchasing the adjoining Langlois plantation….from M. Renaud D’Hauterive….It is possible D’Hauterive sold the plantation because of the financial problems he and his bride were having with the estate of her former husband.  (On June 10, 1757, this land was adjudicated to Alexander Latil, {the father-in-law of Bernard Antoine Dauterive, Chapter 6-B} who sold it on August 26, 1771 to Juan Brazillier}.

Sr. Francois Duval, Cashier of the Company of the Indies from 1731 to 1735, had died owing his employer a large sum.  When his widow remarried plantation owner D’Hauterive, the couple assumed the debts of her former husband’s estate, and on January 15, 1736 acknowledged that Duval’s Succession owed the Company of the Indies 191,975 livres.  Nothing was done about the debt for over a year (until March 23, 1737) when D’Hauterives, sensing a superior bargaining situation, suggested to Commissary Salmon that a compromise be effected, by which the D’Hauterives be permitted to settle the debt for 20,000 livres.  Though this represented only a small percentage of what they owed, the Company, which was attempting to wind up its affairs in Louisiana, accepted the proposition, provided the whole debt be paid off within two years.  The D’Hauterives received their receipt for payment-in-full in September of 1739.”

In 1738 Renaud D’Hauterive was Commandant of the Post of New Orleans.  He was a senior officer, holding the position of Major (Commander of the Garrison).

In the “Records of the Superior Council of Louisiana”, dated September 21, 1739, in the Louisiana Historical Quarterly, there is a “Statement of Condition of Plantation of Mr. D’Hauterive”, when sold to Mr. Bobe Descloseaux, September 9, 1739.  It contained: a list and description of buildings; a list of Negro slaves; utensils, furniture and household goods; and utensils used in the manufacture of indigo and cattle.  It was signed: Charlotte Bossua D’Hauterive.  And, on December 10, 1739 there is a six-page record of the sale of land “fronting on the river and buildings thereon”, by Charlotte Bossua to Sr. Morand for 8000 livres “of which 7000 are to be paid to the Company of the Indies”.

From A History of the Bouligny Family, by Fontaine Martin: “When he died in 1743 he was a senior officer, holding the position of major (commander of the garrison) at New Orleans.”

In De Ville’s Gulf Coast Colonials, Renaud D’Hauterive is called: “Dauterive, Chevalier de St. Louis: Major at New Orleans who died in New Orleans, Louisiana, before December 18, 1745”.

From They Tasted Bayou Water, by Bergerie: “In documents of 1727-1730, found in the Louisiana Historical Quarterly, the name of Captain Renaut D’Hauterive is mentioned.  On two occasions, in legal papers dated 1734, Sieur D’Hauterive, Captain of a Marine Company in New Orleans, is referred to.  Whether this is the same family as Jean Antoine Dauterive is not known.”

From Alabama Church Records, by Winston De Ville: “18 December 1745: Dame Charlotte Bossua, died the same day, wife of deceased, Mr. D’Auterive, Chevalier de L’Ordre Militaire de St. Louis, Major de la Nouvelle Orleans.  De La Lande, king’s scrivner, at the funeral, is nephew of the deceased.”

Charlotte Boussa’s daughter from her first marriage to Francois Orbanne Duval was:


<1> SIEUR LOUIS CHAUVIN DE BEAULIEU I, the first husband of Charlotte Orbanne Duval, was born in Montreal, Canada, in 1678.  He was the son of Pierre Chauvin and Marthe Autreuil and one of St. Denis’s companions in the Texas Expedition.  Their marriage contract of 1724 was witnessed by: D’Hauterive; Charlotte Duval; Lt. Joseph Chauvin; Sir Nicolas Chauvin de La Freniere, his wife Marguerite Le Sueur, and his daughter Marguerite Chauvin de la Freniere.  Louis was in his forties and Charlotte was fifteen years old.  Some of this information is from A Dictionary of Louisiana Biography, Vol. 1, by Glenn R. Conrad.

From “The Chauvin Brothers” in Louisiana History, by Gary B. Mills: “Louis Chauvin and his brother Jean-Baptiste, both (Canadian) voyageurs, arrived in Detroit on June 14, 1706….apparently Louis remained only briefly in Detroit before continuing downriver to the Gulf Coast settlement to join his brothers in Mobile.  Louis was one of St. Denis’ companions in the Texas Expedition of 1716 and, with Joseph Chauvin Delery and Nicholas Chauvin la Freniere, bought property on the Chapitoulas Coast in 1719.  He is considered possibly the first inhabitant or property owner in what is now ‘Old Metairie’.”

A map called “Carte Particuliere du Flevue St. Louis” or “Newberry Library Map” (one of the most important maps in Louisiana history) shows an early view of the Lower Mississippi River settlements after 1720.  Just above New Orleans, on the same side of the river, is the Tchoupitoulas Coast which included the plantations of the three Chauvin brothers: Delery, Beaulieu I and La Freniere, all sons of Pierre Chauvin and Marthe Autreuil.

From Mississippi Provincial Archives 1729-1740, by Rowland and Sanders: “In a letter from Perier and de la Chaise to the Directors of the Company, dated 30 Jan 1729, it states that ‘Sieur de Beaulieu Chauvin of the Choupetoulas has just died of pleurisy.  He was the best of the three brothers.  We are sorry about it because he was always inclined to please the Company.'”

From Shamrocks and Fleurs-de-Lis, by Leland Dudley O’Brien: “Louis Chauvin took the name of Beaulieu.  Later, inheriting a plantation from his uncle, Paul Chauvin de Montplasir, Louis added another name, becoming Louis Chauvin Beaulieu de Montplasir”.

According to the Census of 1726, Louis Chauvin de Beaulieu and Charlotte Orbanne Duval had three children.  “Two of these, Louis Chauvin de Beaulieu, Jr., and Francois Chauvin de Montplasir, were both officers of the Coast Guard Militia at Tchoupitoulas at the end of the French regime in Louisiana” – from Chauvin dit Charleville, by Elizabeth Shown Mills.

From “The Chauvin Brothers” in Louisiana History, by Gary B. Mills: “Although he left two sons bearing the name of Chauvin de Beaulieu, their Louisiana descendants have faded into obscurity.”

<1>A. FRANCOIS CHAUVIN DE BEAULIEU DE MONTPLASIR was born about 1725 In Biloxi.  When he was baptized his godfather was his uncle, Paul Chauvin de Montplasir.  Some records point to the fact that he married MARIANNE DE LA LANDE DAPREMONT, the daughter of Pierre de la Lande Dapremont (a Captain of Louisiana Troops who was burned at the stake by Chickasaw Indians on June 5, 1736) and Malanta Talla, a native of the Alabama nation.  Marianne was the granddaughter of Pierre de la Lande-Guyon and Therese Juchereau, the sister of Louis Juchereau de St. Denis (St. Denis Geneo) and a cousin of Charlotte Orbanne Duval’s 4tth husband, Charles de la Lande Dapremont.

Francois and Marianne may have had two children: Robert Chauvin Beaulieu de Montplasir who never married, and Marie Francoise Chauvin Beaulieu de Montplasir who was born in New Orleans in 1755, married Michel Dragon in 1775, and died in New Orleans in 1822.

From Old Families of Louisiana, by Stanley Clisby Arthur: “Louis’ posterity is not known outside of the descendants of a granddaughter, Francoise Chauvin Beaulieu de Montplasir, born in New Orleans, May, 1755, who married Michel Dragon, whose daughter in turn married Andrea Dimitry….A son was Francois Chauvin Beaulieu de Montplasir, born at Biloxi, who married Marianne la Lande d’Apremont born at Fort Conde.”

From Early Settlers on the Delta, by Shirley Chaisson Bourquard: “On April 12, 1819 before Christoval de Armas, Notary Public, he (Michel Dragon) gave recognition to his daughter with Marie Francoise Montplasir Chauvin Beaulieu, named Marie Anne Dragon, age about 42 years and wife of Adrian Dimitry.  He recognizes her as his natural daughter, conforming to the law.  She would have been born around 1777.”  There is a portrait of Marianne Celeste Dragon, painted about 1796, in the building next to the Cathedral of St. Louis in New Orleans which gives her dates as 1777 to 1856.

But, according to the Sacramental Records of New Orleans, Francois, in his death record, is listed as a bachelor, age seventy-seven.  He died in his house on the coast of Chapitoulas and was interred on October 2, 1802 in St. Louis Cathedral in the first section of the nave of the chapel of St. Francis.

<1>B. LOUIS CHAUVIN DE BEAULIEU II was born before 1729 and in 1762 he was married to MARIE MARGUERITE HAZEUR in New Orleans.  The witnesses for the groom noted on their marriage contract were: “Francois Chauvin Montplasir, his brother; Francois Demouy, also his (step) brother; Mr. Delalande, Councillor Assessor of the Superior Council, acting Procureur General of the King, his uncle by marriage; Sir Nicolas Chauvin Boisclair, Officer of the Coast-guard Militia, his first cousin; Sr. Antoine Chauvin Desillet, Officer of the Coast Guard Militia, also his first cousin.  Witnesses for the bride were: Marie Joseph de Lusser Hazeur, her mother; Madame de Bombel, her aunt; Sieur Jean Pierre Devel de Chevenne, her first cousin; by Madame Devel, her aunt; by Mr. Francois Simars de Bellisle, Knight of St. Louis, Major of New Orleans, her friend; by Mr. Simars de Bellisle, Jr., Officer of the Colonial Troops, her cousin by marriage, and by Madame de Bellisle, his wife”.  The contract was signed by the following: “Chauvin Montplasir, Demouy, Duval, officer, Belisle, fils, officer, Devel, officer, Boisclair, militia captain, Marie Joseph Lusser Hazeur, Lusser Devel, Darensbourg Boisclaire, Demouy, Chauvin Boisclair, Constance Hazeur, Charlotte Demouy, Genevieve Demouy, Demouy Jalliot, Margueritte Devel, Bonitte Bonbelle, and L’Ange.” These quotes are from “Records of the Superior Council of Louisiana”, in the Louisiana Historical Quarterly, and the Sacramental Records of New Orleans.

The family lived at the Chapitoulas Plantation on the Mississippi River near New Orleans.

According to the Sacramental Records of New Orleans, Louis Chauvin de Beaulieu II was interred on October 11, 1801 in the St. Louis Cathedral in the first section of the chapel of the Most Holy Virgin of the Rosary.

Louis II and Marie Marguerite Hazeur had eight children, including:

1) Marie Marguerite Chauvin de Beaulieu was born in 1763 in New Orleans.  When she was baptized there later that year, her sponsors were Joseph Demouy, officer of a detached naval company, and Marguerite Develle.  Marie Marguerite Chauvin de Beaulieu died in 1844 in New Orleans.

2) Marie Nicolas Clemence Chauvin de Beaulieu was born and baptized in New Orleans in 1764.  Her baptismal sponsors were Nicolas Chauvin Lafreniere, royal procurator general and councilor in the royal council, and Marie Joseph Lusser, widow Hazeur.  In 1785 Clemence married Charles Joseph Francois Hardy de Boisblanc.  He died in 1812 and she died in 1842, both in New Orleans.

Their daughter, Genevieve Hardy de Boisblanc, married Norbert Fortier, and their son, Xavier Alexandre Edouard de Boisblanc, married Norbert’s cousin, Victoria Judovica Cydalise Fortier.  Their son, Louis Hardy de Boisblanc, married Charlotte Adele Bienvenu, the daughter of Antoine Bienvenu II and Marie Charlotte Pascalis Volant de la Barre.

3) Pierre Louis Chauvin de Beaulieu was born in New Orleans in 1765.  He was baptized later that year and his witnesses were Pierre Chabert, captain on half-pay, and Barbara Ursule de Bonitte, widow Bombelles.  In 1791 he married Marie Therese Beaudoin in Natchitoches.

<2> FRANCOIS DEMOUY, the second husband of Charlotte Orbanne Duval, had arrived in Mobile from France about 1720.  The date of their marriage is unknown but five children of this marriage have been discovered:

<2>C. CHARLOTTE DEMOUY was baptized in New Orleans in 1730.

<2>D. MARGUERITE DEMOUY was baptized in 1731.  Her sponsors were Marguerite Lesseur and Renaud D’Hauterive.  She was married in 1750 to WILLIAM JACQUES NICOLAS LANGE.

<2>E. ELIZABETH DEMOUY was baptized in 1732.  Her sponsors were Jacques Bellaire and Charlotte Duval.

<2>F. JOSEPH FRANCOIS DEMOUY was baptized in 1733.  His sponsors were Joseph Delery and Renault D’Hauterive.  On his death record, he is referred to as a native and resident of New Orleans, a former official in the service of His Christian Majesty, the King of France, and a bachelor.  He was buried in St. Louis Cemetery in New Orleans in 1814.

<2>G. CHARLES ORBANNE DEMOUY was born about 1734 and lived in Mobile in 1764.  A native of New Orleans, he was married in 1770 in Mobile to Marie Louise Rachon, a native of Mobile, the daughter of Augustin Rachon and Marie Jeanne Simon dit Lapointe.  When their daughter, Marguerite Demouy, was married in 1759 to Jean Baptiste Roujot, their wedding witnesses included “Pierre Rene de Lagautrais, widower of Therese Nepveu, apparently remarried to Louise Marguerite Belzaguy (who was present), and his son, Pierre Harpin Delagautrais, surely the son of Captain Pierre Rene Harpin de la Gautrais and Therese Nepveu” – this information is from Love’s Legacy, by Jacqueline Vidrine.   But this seems to be an error since my research shows tha Rene de la Gautrais II, the widower of Therese Nepveu, was the son of Pierre Rene de Lagautrais I, not his father.   

In “The French in Mobile, British West Florida, 1763-1780” from the New Orleans Genesis, by Albert Tate, Charles Orbane-Demouy is found on the list of French inhabitants of Mobile who have taken the oath of allegiance to the British King George III in 1763 and to the Spanish King, Charles III, in 1780.

In Louisiana Troops, 1720-1770, by Winston De Ville, there are two De Mouys listed (probably Francois and Charles Demouy); “De Mouy, Second Lieutenant, 1 February 1754, ensign en pied, 15 May 1762; De Mouy, Second Lieutenant, 1 February 1758, ensign en pied, 15 May 1762.”

<3> CHARLES MARIE DE LA LANDE DAPREMONT (D’APRESMONT) was the third husband of Charlotte Orbanne Duval and the widower of Marie Anne Chauvin, the daughter of Jacques Chauvin, who was a brother of Louis Chauvin de Beaulieu (above).  He was a cousin of Marianne de la Lande Dapremont who married Francois Chauvin de Beaulieu de Montplasir (above).

In Love’s Legacy, by Jacqueline O. Vidrine, the author refers to Charles Marie de Lalande as royal scribe; “Had been garde magasin at Mobile since 1732….In 1735 he was guardian of the royal storehouse in New Orleans.  He and Charlotte Duval signed a marriage contract in 1735 in New Orleans.  The couple lived in Mobile until at least 1746.”

According to their marriage contract, dated May 7, 1735, Charles was the son of Louis Pascal de la Lande and Marie Charlotte Despre.  Witnesses included: Bienville, de Beaulieu, Bizoton, le Bretton, Demouy, Charlotte Duval, Pellerin, D’Hauterive, la Freniere.

From Mobile Land Grants, by Andrews and Higgins: In January 1737 there is a “conveyance of the St. Louis Plantation by the heirs of M. Dixon to Charles Maria de La Lande”….On June 6, 1746 there is another “conveyance of the St. Louis Plantation from Charles Maria de La Lande to Joseph Barbeau de Boisdore”.

Charles Delalande is called the guardian of the minor grandchildren of Charlotte Bossua, the widow of Messire Rene Dauterive, Major at New Orleans on December 28, 1747 in “Records of the Superior Council of Louisiana”, in Louisiana Historical Quarterly, Vol. 13.

From The Last Years of French Louisiana, by Marc du Terrage: “Charles Marie de La Lande d’Apremont, Councilor Assessor of the Superior Council from 1748 to 1769….In 1761, La Lande replaced Raguet as acting attorney general, a post which the latter had held since 1753.”

Dapremont died in 1778 and his inventory was done at the home of his stepson, Francisco Beaulieu Montplasir Delery.  In his Will, dated October 30, 1778, and found in the files of J. Garic, the New Orleans Notary, Pierre Clabert, a son-in-law, was named Testamentary Executor.  A public auction for a sale of the effects was carried out on November 12, 1778 and the proceeds were divided equally between his five children.  His inventory is noted in the “Index to the Spanish Judicial Records of Louisiana” in the Louisiana Historical Quarterly, Vol. XIII.  It states that eight years before his children had “made an amicable division of the property left at the death of his wife, Carlota Duval, giving each one his share, 2803 pesos.  The value of the present inventory was 247 pesos, 3 reales.”

Charles de la Lande Dapremont and Charlotte Orbanne Duval Chauvin de Beaulieu Demouy Dapremont had five children:

<3>H. JEAN LOUIS DE LA LANDE DAPREMONT, a Captain of the French troops, was married in 1772 in New Orleans to Marie Jeanne Baure (Bore).  He is listed on the 1791 Census as a resident of Orleans Street in New Orleans.


<3>J. CHARLOTTE DE LA LANDE DAPREMONT married PIERRE CLABERT, a Captain of Infantry in the service of France.  Her Will is dated October 1, 1788.

<3>K. ROSA DE LA LANDE DAPREMONT is absent in France at the time of the inventory of her father’s estate in 1778.

<3>L. MARGUERITE DE LA LANDE DAPREMONT is absent in France at the time of the inventory of her father’s estate in 1778.  Her Will is dated April 15, 1777.
