Nicholas Babineau came from France to Southern Acadia North America from 1665-1685 (Sources disagree. See below).
Acadia was a French colony in North America which covered todays Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, part of New Brunswick and Quebec Canada and Maine
The French were expelled from the southern area by the British in 1755. The Babineau's moved to Richibouctou Village near St. Louis and ended up in St. Louis de Kent, before moving to Massachusetts in the early 1900's.
33% of the people in New Brunswick today speak French and English,. 9% speak French only.
There were other Cyrille and Edmond Babineaus in Kent Parish, but it looks like the ones in St. Louis, Kent County are part of this line.
New Mills is where Arthur Joseph Babineau McBride's McBride ancestors lived after they left Scotland in 1851. Thomas left for California in 1870. Donald died in New Mills in 1879.

Around 1687, Nicolas married Marie-Marguerite Granger, daughter of Laurent Granger and Marie Landry. Between about 1689 and 1709, Nicolas and Marie-Marguerite had six children: René (dit Renaud), Geneviève, Clément, Joseph (dit Deslauriers), Marie, and Jean (Jean-Pierre dit Deslauriers).
They lived in Pentagouët where they were listed in the 1693 Acadian Census, which is now part of the USA at Penobscot, Maine.
Nicolas moved to Port Royal Nova Scotia in 1701 for reasons unknown, when he purchased a homestead on the Dauphin (Annapolis).
