The town was named for John W. Jeanerette, who came to the Teche country in the early 1800s from South Carolina. When Jeanerette first arrived in the area, he was hired as a tutor at one of the plantations in the area. A year later, he opened a store and a saloon. In 1830, he bought Pine Grove Plantation, eight miles below New Iberia, but apparently was more interested in playing cards than in raising sugar.
An early account describes John W. Jeanerette as "a man of affairs, and a great many of them--sugar planter, justice of the peace, our first postmaster, pioneer 'brag' player, and 'fine host of the inn.'" It said that "his friends claimed for him the character of the old, high-minded South Carolina gentleman."
His wife, according to the report "was a good, pious Methodist, (who) tried very hard to keep their only son, Tom, straight, but it was no use." The report says that "she did her level best to balance accounts in the family, always had a preaching place in the house, and there were often religious services going on in one part and a big game of cards in the other. Indeed, of all of (John Jeanerette's) many irons, this seemed to be the only one he did really keep hot. But his many pupils in 'brag' became experts, and so turned his lessons against himself that in 1837 he was sold out and the family removed to Alabama where it became extinct."
