Conversos in Colonial French Canada

Surnames: Galipeau, Galapo
Can anyone shed any light on what is known about Conversos who possibly emigrated to Acadia and Quebec? My grandmother as a child lived with her Galipeau relatives who were from Quebec. She recalls that on Friday evenings, her grandfather would put a close fitting hat on his head, her grandmother would light candles, and they would say prayers in a language that my grandmother did not speak (she knew English and French). The name could have also been spelt as Galapo in earlier documents and the family lived in SW France in the 1500s.
