Laurent Granger was born in 1637 at Plymouth, England. He is part of that small percentage of Acadians who do not have their roots in France. Having arrived in 1659, he married an Acadian, Marie Landry. From this union 8 children were born.
Joseph Granger (third generation of this same lineage) born in 1707, was deported to Falmouth, England where he died in 1757.
