Dan Donahue sent me the following link:
this article has a lot of references to the Baudoin family (note spelling) and the reasons for emigration from Ile de Re, France.
>From page 27, I have the following translated quote:
"The rhétais traders grouped together in both main ports of the island, Saint-Martin and La Flotte, were in close relation with the rochelais traders and often united with them by familial links. For example, the trader Jacques Baudoin, the brother of the emigrant of the same name, was born in Saint-Martin but lived in La Rochelle. His children, Jean-Charles and Marie Baudoin, were also born in La Rochelle and got married there. This last one married Louis Lepays, sieur de Bourjoly there, before attempting the adventure towards Saint-Domingue."
This is further confirmation that Solon Baudouin had 2 sons, both of which he named Jacques. The first, born about 1644, married Marie Massiot and moved to the Caribbean to start the lineage down there.
The second, Jacques, born 1645, married Francois Durand and moved to Quebec, Canada.
Francois Marchi, corroborates this on his site:
