FamilySearch.com does not check out posted info. I have no idea how the connection was made between Francois Beauregard, died 12 Jan 1709, Montréal, and Francois Davignon-Beauregard of Chambly. I have found no evidence whatsoever of any link. Francois Davignon-Beauregard is listed as coming from France on his marriage record, with no parents listed. He remains continuously in Chambly until his death in 1761. Francois Beauregard also came from France (according to the death record) and was born about 1659. PDRH has no further info about him.
The Beauregard families listed are all distinct, coming from separate immigrant ancestors in Canada. dit names can be considered nicknames, often picked up by the immigrant ancestor. These often become confused with the original surname, and sometimes replace it in many lines of descendants.
