  • Notes 
    • Etienne Hebert came to Acadia with brother & sister-in-law about 1640.

      Five Hebert families and two single Hebert men settled along the first Louisiana Acadian Coast in St. James Parish, while the two single men settled in the Attakapas country by 1766. One of the five St. James Parish families was headed by Claire Robichaud, the widow of Jean Baptiste Jebert from Memramcook. In 1767, nine more Hebert families arrived in Louisiana from exile in Maryland and settled near present day St. Gabriel in Iberville Parish.

      One of the Hebert families that arrived from Maryland provided Louisiana with its 15th governor. Paul Octave Hebert, the great-great-great-great grandson of the original Estienne Hebert, was Louisiana's governor from 1853-1856. He was born and raised on a sugar plantation a few mile downriver from Plaquemine in Iberville Parish. His father was Paul Hebert, who married Eugenie Hamilton in 1817.

      A number of Heberts eventually settled along the Bayous Teche and Vermillion. At least one of the sons of Jean dit Emmanuel Hebert (who married Magdelaine Dugas) of Memramcook, Belony, was one of these settlers. He and his wife Jeanne Savoie, and at least two of his sons, Joseph Pepin (who married Madeleine Trahan in 1771) and Jean Charles (who married Madeleine Robichaud in 1773) settled alone the Bayou Vermilion. Many of their descendants still live along the bayou in Lafayette and Vermilion parishes.
