Here is a history page for Thibodaux.
Founded on Bayou Lafourche, Thibodaux was a trading post between New Orleans and the Bayou Teche country in the late 1700's. In 1808, once the Louisiana Purchase was completed, the community became the parish seat of Lafourche Interior.
Thibodaux was named for Henry Schuyler Thibodaux who was one of the early settlers. His property was divided up into lots to be sold. It was originally incorporated in 1830 as Thibodauxville, but the name was changed in 1838 by Governor E.D. White, a resident of the parish, to Thibodeaux. In 1918, the official spelling was changed to its current form, Thibodaux.
