Generation No. 1

       1. Antoine1 Dionne-dit-Sansoucy-Guyon was born about 1641 in France, and died 24 Dec 1721 in St. Jean de l'Île d'Orléans, QC. He married Catherine Ivory about 1660 in France. She was born about 1644 in France, and died Aft. 26 Mar 1709 in Île d'Orléans, QC.

Notes for Antoine Dionne-dit-Sansoucy-Guyon:
Antoine Dionne dit Sansoucy-dit-Guyon and is wife Catherine Ivory arrived in New France around 1661 with their son André. Antoine's brother Jean also came to New France. It is not known if they travelled together. Their origin in France and the name of their parents are unknown. These two brothers arrived in New France with the family name Guyonne and the nickname (dit) Sansoucy. At one time in France the name most likely was Guyon. In France many names were feminized, as a result Guyon became Guyonne. Once in New France their name Guyonne was soon changed to Dionne. At weddings and in the census, the government forced the people to sign with their parents original names. In the 1666 census, he was recorded as being Antoine Guyonne age 25. There seem not to be any rules with land purchases. At these times, he signed his name Antoine Dionne or Antoine Guyonne dit Sansoucy. We know that all the Dionnes that trace their genealogy to the mid 1600 in Canada, are descendants of Antoine.
Not much is recorded about Jean. All I know it that he he obtained land on 14 July 1662 and he was sighted in Québec City on 5 Mar 1663 when he became godfather for Anne Chalut and at the birth of his niece Anne on 27 July 1665 when he became her godfather.
When Antoine's son André died on 28 Nov 1664, the Abby Thomas Morel wrote in the cemetery register, that he was three years old. Since nothing was mentioned of his birth, it is assumed he was born in France.
Antoine and his family established themselves in the Orleans Island (Île d'Orléans), near Québec City. The first piece of land where they lived, in Canada, is now located at 2242 chemin Royal (Royal road) in Saint-Pierre, Île d'Orléans.
In the census at Île d'Orlean, he was recorded as being 25 in 1666, 26 in 1667 and 45 in 1681.
This is the ancestor of the Dionne quintuplets born in Canada on 28 May 1934. Before fertility pills quintuplets were very rare.
This couple had 12 children (3 boys and 9 girls). Two of the boys died at a young age. Their son Jean was the only one left to carry on the surname of Dionne.



Notes for Catherine Ivory:
When the records show that someone (like her son Antoine) died before 1681, this is because the child did not show up in the 1681 census.
Catherine died sometime after making a donation to Father Jacob on 26 Mar 1709 at Île d'Orléans.

Generation No. 2

       3. Marie2 Asselin/Ancelin (Rene1) was born 07 May 1651 in Ste. Marguerite, La Rochelle, Charente Maritime, France, and died 18 Apr 1729 in Kamouraska, QC. She married Pierre Michaud Nov 1667 in Château Richer, Montmorency, QC (ct 2 Oct, Aubert), son of Antoine Michaud and Marie Train/Juin. He was born about 1637 in Notre Dame de Fontenay le Comte, Maillezais, Poitou, France, and died Bet. 30 May 1702 - 08 May 1703 in Kamouraska, QC.

Notes for Marie Asselin/Ancelin:
She lived at Ange-Gardien with her father and stepmother. She was Marie Asselin, daughter of the thread-mill worker, Rene Asselin and the late Claire Rousselot. She first saw the light of day at La Rochelle, parish of Notre-Dame, in May 1651. Her father, three and a half years after the death of his first wife at La Rochelle, remarried to Marie Juin on 19 January 1665. The following spring they emigrated to Canada, bringing little 11-year-old Marie with them. At first the Ancelins lived at the Ange-Gardien where, in 1667, they owned 2 head of cattle and 6 arpents of cultivated land. Their neighbors were Abraham Fiset and Jacques Achon.
On 18 May 1669, Marie Asselin was godmother at the baptism of her half-sister, Marie, at Ange-Gardien. At this time she was not yet married to Pierre Michaud.

Notes for Pierre Michaud:
(This text is from "Our French Canadian Ancestors" by Thomas J. Laforest, Vol II, pages 159-1671)
Pierre Michaud, for the better part of his life, carried the family name Michel. Michaud means 'little Michel.'
Where did Pierre Michel come from? He was a Poitevan and originated from Fontenay-le-Comte, capital of the Department of the Vendee. The land surrounding this village, because of the excavations of flints and potsherds, archeologists believe to have been the home of prehistoric man, even before the time of Asterix the Gaul. It was only in 1242 that the specification 'le-Comte' was added.
Fontenay-le-Comte was a part of the Diocese of Maillezais for a long time; but at the time of our ancestor, the episcopal seat was transferred to La Rochelle in Aunis by Pope Innocent X, in the year 1648. More than 30 people emigrated from Fontenay-le-Comte for Canada. The names of some of these: Jacques Bernier, Andre Bonnenfant, Jacques Manseau and 3 other Pierres; Bourgoin, Cardinal and l'Ecuyer.
Pierre Michel was baptized in the Church of Notre-Dame, located in the Rue Pont-aux-Chevres. His parents were Antoine Michel and Marie Train. Pierre however did name his mother Marie Juin when he got married.
The church (where he was baptized), spires and all, was 240 feet tall, but in those days, did not have the clock displayed on the facade.
On the 27th of March 1656, before Notary Paul Moreau of La Rochelle, Pierre Michaud indentured himself to Jacques Pepin, a ships' factor and merchant of La Rochelle, to go to work in Québec for 3 years. His salary would be 36 livres (pounds) per year, with an immediate advance of 38 livres and 5 sols.
Pierre made the crossing 1656 from La Rochelle to Québec on the ship "LaFortune", owned by a Monsieur Auboyneau. This small ship of 100 tons displacement was commanded by Edouard Raymond, Master.
Pierre Michel was classed as a migratory worker. Established first on the Beaupre coast, he passed through the islands on the Saint Lawrence, then on to the south bank of the river, finally to die at Kamouraska.
ON THE BEAUPRE COAST
The first official mention of the presence of Pierre Michaud in Canada is found in the Register of Receipts and Expenditures of the Church of Saint-Anne-du-Petit-Cap in the year 1661-1662: 'to pierre micheau (Michel) for two days three livres.' Our ancestor seems to have done manual labor on the construction of the second church of Sainte-Anne.
In August, 1663, in a sales contract, we learn that Pierre Michaud is a partner of Michel Marquiseau in the ownership of a grant of 3 arpents (acres) in the village of Beaupre, to the east of the Riviere Sainte-Anne. Pierre sold it on 6 September 1665 to Francois Daniau.
After 1665, Pierre worked away from Sainte-Anne, probably as a hired farm hand. Perhaps he also enjoyed, for a time, the adventurous life of a coureur de bois (lumberjack); or perhaps even the campaigns with the Carignan Regiment, because, in the census of 1666 and 1667, no mention is made of his presence. But by the end of the summer of 1667, on 2 October, Pierre is present in the home of Claude Auber, in order to amend the text of his marriage contract. The notary wrote: 'Pierre Michel, habitant of Sainte-Anne du Petit-Cap, coast and seigniory of Beaupre.' This contract was never signed.
For some unknown reason, the celebration of the marriage of Pierre was delayed for about 3 years. Perhaps she was much too young. His girl friend lived at Ange-Gardien with her father and stepmother. She was Marie Asselin, daughter of the thread-mill worker, Rene Asselin and the late Claire Rousselot. She first saw the light of day at La Rochelle, parish of Notre-Dame, in May 1654. Her father, three and a half years after the death of his first wife at La Rochelle, remarried to Marie Juin on 19 January 1665. The following spring they emigrated to Canada, bringing little 11-year-old Marie with them. At first the Ancelins lived at the Ange-Gardien where, in 1667, they owned 2 head of cattle and 6 arpents of cultivated land. Their neighbors were Abraham Fiset and Jacques Achon.
On 18 May 1669, Marie Asselin was godmother at the baptism of her half-sister, Marie, at Ange-Gardien. At this time she was not yet married to Pierre Michaud.
ON THE ISLE OF ORLEANS
According to Leon Roy, Pierre Michaud obtained a land grant of 3 arpents of river frontage on the Île d'Orléans from Mgr de Laval in June 1667. It was within the boundaries of Saint-Jean parish, between neighbors Robert Boulay and Louis Bibet.
On 18 November 1670, we learn from the records
of Notary Pierre Duquet, that Pierre Michaud, habitant of the Île of Orleans, owed a debt of 21 livres 10 sols to Louis Boussot dit Laflotte.
His young fiancee now lived on the island, along with her parents. On 26 March 1670, Marie Asselin appeared as a godmother to the infant of Antoine Pepin-Lachance and Marie Tetu. Were Pierre and Marie married by this time? There is nothing to prove it. The opinion is that probably the marriage had taken place between 1669 and 1671, on the Île of Orleans, where they both lived. The missionary priest must have simply forgotten to record the act in the register of Notre-Dame de Québec.
In 1671, what a show took place! Pierre Michaud instituted a criminal suit against Mathurin Thibodeau dit Lalime, an unsuited colonist of Saint-Jean parish. We don't have the space to lay out the 13 pieces of judicial proceedings, which are, nonetheless, most interesting. It seems to have been a matter between fighting cocks, and the consequences be damned.
Pierre must have had the fidgets again; because he left the island in search of greener pastures.
THE ISLAND OF THE GEESE
After 1671, Pierre Michaud and Marie Asselin lived on the Île-aux-Oies. The proof comes when their first child, Pierre, born 11 February 1672, was baptized by Father Morel on 8 March. His godmother was Anne Macart, wife of the Sieur de Granville, a resident of the island in question. Moreover, on 9 September 1673, 'Pierre Michel living on the Île aux Oyes,' sold his land on the Île of Orleans, where he had cleared 5 arpents, to Jean Mourier.
Pierre Michaud probably worked in the service of Sieur de Granville for 3 years; then he exercised his right to move over to the twin, Island of the Cranes. This Île-aux-Grues is just opposite Cap-St-Ignace. It was here that his eldest daughter, Marie-Anne, was born on 12 November 1675. In effect, on 17 July 1674 the seigneur of these two little islands granted 6 arpents of frontage to a depth of the entire island to Pierre.
His neighbors would be Jean Soucy and Pierre Terrien. On 28 April 1675, Pierre acted as godfather to Marie-Anne Soucy, born on the Île-aux-Grues. By the winter of 1681 the Michaud family, with 5 children, was still living on their island farm. They had 6 arpents of land under cultivation, 10 animals and a hunting rifle.
Pierre had battled his record of instability and lost. Already he was looking southward!
At 44 years of age, our ancestor Michaud climbed into his boat, followed by his family, and crossed over to the south shore of the river, to a place called l'Islet. Here he remained for 11 years, and it was here that his last 5 children were baptized.
In 1692, Dame Genevieve Couillard, widow of the late Sieur du Tarte, enticed Michel to move to her fief at Saint-Jean-Port-Joli. A concession (grant), privately granted, was made on 19 October 1695 by the Seigneuries, but two years later was resold by the Michauds to Pierre Lessard.
Now, to where would the meandering Michauds move? By 30 June 1695, Pierre and Marie held official title to a concession of 12 arpents of frontal property on the river, at Kamouraska. This was large enough to satisfy the most numerous and needy of families. It is possible that they already had lived on this land for a few years; moreover, the parents of Marie, Rene Asselin and Marie Juin, established a home at Kamouraska about this time.
This was the last place the family lived. Kamouraska became their homestead and the cradle of the multitude of descendants of the Michauds of America.
THE LAST PORT
The Michauds certainly did not lack courage. Kamouraska was their final surge of effort. Pierre was enduring a cancer of the mouth, caused by pipe smoking. In 1701 Pierre and Marie made their will, with the consent of their children. The assets would go to the survivor of the two of them.
Pierre died in 1702, sometime between the 28th of May and the 15th of September. The widow Marie Asselin, on 18 October 1704, obviously with her children in mind, convinced the Seigneur Louis Aubert de Forillon to make a small addition to her land. He added 8 arpents of width to the 12 already existing! An inventory of her possessions was not made until 20 April 1724. Nine days later Marie gave her assets to her son, Joseph, and placed herself in his care. She died and was buried at Kamouraska on 18 April 1729.
They named two of their sons Pierre: Pierre-dit-l"aine (the elder) and Pierre-dit-le cadet (the younger).

In the early settlement of this area for the fisheries of white whale, the territory was "desservi" by a priest missionary once or twice a year.

Caution should also be maintained as a lot of birth and marriage noted on loose leaves were register as far as Levis and Québec City without further indications.

=======================
Hi, I have decided to post all my Québec pioneer ancestor at the different GenForums because a lot of individuals doing genealogy research don’t realize that their ancestors can be found as early as the 1600s.

My resources are limited because I live in Oregon. I hope that you use this information only as a guide. I welcome corrections and additions from anyone that has access to the original files.

Originally I paid a genealogy society to trace the direct lines for 6 of my 8 great grandparents. They used the books that were compiled by volunteers for each parish. Because so many individuals had the same name, I eventually found some errors in these books. Then I used Tanguay and found out that he may be about 75% right and Jette (that goes to 1730) is about 90% right. Then just as I thought that I was finished, I found PRDH (University of Montreal) and I believe that they may be 98% right and still make corrections to their records. They go up to 1799 for marriage contracts and 1850 for some deaths. Some people have the luxury of having the original records at their disposal. I do not have that and with 17,000 individuals in my data base, I can not afford to pay for copies of all the originals. At that point I confirmed every that I had with the records at PRDH. Whenever I say “about” for a birth date it means that PRDH did not find it or if it is in the 1800s, I did not look it up because of my lack of resources.

PRDH uses the most common spelling variation for the names. This makes it easier to trace the families. They do not always use the original name that appears on the contracts or birth records. That is ok with me, because many individuals before the 1900s could not sign their names and did not even care how others spelt it. As a result the same person’s name took on a variety of spellings. I also kept the “dit” (aka) names because eventually brothers from the same family, picked a different aka name. For a very small fee PRDH has all the Canadian records from 1600-1799 and some death dates up to 1850. Their records are about 18% accurate. They can be found at:

As for the pioneers, I also used Peter Gagné’s English books on the single girls that arrived in New France between 1634 & 1662 and his book on the single girls that are referred to as the King’s Daughters that arrived between 1663 & 1673. These girls were recruited and paid by the King to go to New France (Québec) to get married and colonize the area.

For the 1800-1900s I paid to prove my direct lines. My data for their extended family come from people on the web. The program that I use does not allow for baptismal dates, so if I don’t have a birth date, I use the baptismal date. The same goes for death vs. burial dates and actual wedding vs. contract dates. The newer programs have these features, but I will not be going through 18,000 records to make the changes.

Use this information as a guide only. I view genealogy as a hobby and not as pure science. As for the stories, I got them all in French on the web and I translated them for my grandchildren. I had not read or spoken French in over 40 years, so it was difficult and may not be the best translation.

Enjoy, Janet
