Gilbert Girouard was born in Sainte-Marie-de-Kent on October 26, 1846. All of the lumber needed for the construction of the convent was cut, free of charge, at his sawmill in Bouctouche. A politician and a patriot, he was elected Member of Parliament for Kent County at the federal elections of 1878 and 1882.
