Jerry Baynard is a French Canadian hired boy whom Matthew Cuthbert hired to help with farmwork around Green Gables, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Baynard, and a love interest of Diana Barry.


Jerry comes from a very large and poor family of Acadian trappers. Instead of going to school, Jerry must work to help provide for his family.

Anne saw Jerry as a rival when he was hired as a farmhand at Green Gables. Anne wanted to prove that a girl could do all the things a boy could do and more, so that Marilla wouldn't be tempted to adopt a boy instead.
