  • This family tree and history was the work of Michel Caseault, a cousin from Quebec, who also collaborated with other relatives in Ohio, Idaho, Washington, Ontario and France.

  • Recently I met Father Philip Salois who resides inNorth Smithfield, RI. His Great Grandfather is the same as mine, Charles Casault. He has also done research into our family tree and supplied me with G6 and G7.

  • There is more of the family history that needs to be researched.

This was the first Grandfather to settle in North America in 1759. He was well known Navigator living in the area of St-Pierre Langers France and most likely sailed from the nearby port of St-Malo (Home of Jacques Cartier, who explored the
St. Lawrence River area during the early 1500's). Jean-Baptiste probably arrived in May of 1759 just after the ice broke on the St. Lawrence River. HIs ship consisted of a contingent of 20 vessels that avoided the British blockade of the river. They surprised the Brittish by arriving that early in the season.. After the defeat of Quebec City on the Plains of Abraham, his ship would have been captured by the British and he would have been stranded in New Canada. More research is on going.

The house he built in 1767 is still standing and is a National Historic Monument.

An Earlier History? (Research done in France by the Casault Family)

A possible earlier spelling of our name could be Caso with an origin possibly back to ancient Rome? If so, did the original members march into Gaul with Julius Caesar during 58-51 BCE and intermingle with the Gauls during garrison duty and eventually adapt the spelling of the name to a local variation?

Many people mistake the Romans as having Italian lineage. Legend and some history tell another story. Around 1200 BCE, when the ancient Greeks were conquering, and then destroying, the ancient city of Troy (Remember Helen of Troy in Homer’s Iliad?), a group of Trojans led by a prince, named Aeneas, escaped into the Mediterranean Sea using about 100 ships. One of their stops was at the North African city of Carthage. From there they went to their destiny which is now Rome. They conquered the inhabitants and formed the Rome and Julio-Claudian dynasty. Virgil’s Aeneid traces this flight and the eventual founding of Rome. Julius Caesar’s family claimed that he was descent from Venus through Aeneas’s son Iulus.

Why do I think this is a possible scenario?

Based on my National Geographic GenoGraphic Project results, I believe this is a possibility. The resultant map shows a distribution of the Cazeault DNA throughout Northern Africa (Carthage), Eastern Turkey (Troy), Russia and Europe (Italy and France or Gaul), including the United Kingdom. Again, this is based on an historical legend. This could be distinct possibility. Click on the Trojan Helmet for more information include the Genographic Project results.
