Tupperville is a community in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia, located in Annapolis County . Before it became known as Tupperville it was once Girouard Village, home of many generations of the Girouard family from 1690-1755 starting with Jacques Girouard (b-1648 d-1703) and his wife Marguerite Gautrot Girouard. Jacques was the eldest son of Francois Girouard and Jeanne Aucoin Girouard. The Girouard's built a number of homes and worked the land which also once belonged to Charles D'Aulnay, Governor of Acadie from 1636-1650. Tupperville was named after Canada's sixth Prime Minister Sir Charles Tupper who was said to frequent the area.
