Our History

Edwin St. Aubin is justifiably proud of three centuries of family roots in Detroit. The St. Aubin family was among the original founding families of the city. To this day, there is a street running through downtown that bears the family name. 

John Casse dit. St. Aubin was born in France, in 1659, and became a sailor. As a young man, he migrated to Canada. When Antoine De La Mothe de Cadillac was looking for men to establish Fort Pontchartrain at Detroit, John signed on. Cadillac and his party landed at Detroit on July 24, 1701, and laid the foundation of our present city. John Casse dit St. Aubin died at the age of 100, and was buried in Detroit on February 27, 1759.

This is the signature of Jean Casse dit St. Aubin and his wife Marie Gaultier from a hotel register in Montreal in the late 1600’s. Many of Caddilac’s men were named for the towns in which they were born. Saint Aubin was the name of the town in France where Jean Casse’ was believed to be born in 1659. He is said to have died in Detroit in 1759.

The sign shown below was discovered by a Detroit Edison worker several years ago in a loft above a garage on St. Aubin street. It turns out that at the begining of the early 1900’s my grandfather Edwin was selling what remained of the St. Aubin farm and homestead.
