Greetings Corporal...I had not heard of the "New France" you mentioned. I of course was using the term as it pertained to the historical holdings of France in North America. Pleased you have enjoyed my postings, check under the spelling "Deveau" as well. That is a mispelling that became (unfortunately) very common...there is more there.
As for Michel, given his "dit" name "Dauphine" I believe him to have come from that old province in France, but we shall likley never have any hard evidence of his origin since the record of his marriage in 1693 at Beaubassin has bnot survived. I have a website which includes an extensive discussion of the history of the name and the family. Contact me directly at: email@example.com. (RCAF, eh? I put in 25 years as a USAF pilot). Cheers, John
