The murder of the Emoneau (Eminaud) family in 1791 has fascinated genealogists and amateur historians for decades. The Emoneau deaths of 1791 at the hands of two Boutilier brothers were the first murders in Lunenburg since the community had been settled in 1753. The nature of the murders and the trial have been viewed as controversial since evidence to convict the Boutilier brothers was largely circumstantial and scant at best. Interestingly, the lawyer for the Crown published the transcript of the trial in 1791, but the trial faded from memory until 1895 when historian and judge Mather Byles DesBrisay published the History of the County of Lunenburg in which he devoted five pages summarizing the unfortunate events of March 1791. This summary of the murder and trial revived interest in the murders that persists into the 21st century.

Historian and genealogist Dr. Kenneth S. Paulsen has taken the 1791 transcript and annotated it to provide background information on everyone involved in the trial from the judge to the jury and witnesses. The participants in the trial represent a cross section of Lunenburg's multicultural settlement. Additionally, an introduction provides context on the Emoneau family. Genealogies of the Emoneau and Boutilier families complete the book. Dr. Paulsen's interest in the murders and trial is more than an historical curiosity as he is a direct descendant of murdered Emoneaus as well as a sibling of the murderers.
