       1. Sebastien1 Cordeau was born about 1610 in Eure-et-Loir, France. He married Lubine Sappelliere. She was born about 1610 in Eure-et-Loir, France.
       
Child of Sebastien Cordeau and Lubine Sappelliere is:
+       2       i.       Jean2 Cordeau-dit-Deslauriers, born about 1635 in Dangeau, Chateaudun Beauce, Eure-et-Loir, France; died Bet. 03 Feb 1678 - 21 Jan 1681 in Île d'Orléans, QC.


Generation No. 2

       2. Jean2 Cordeau-dit-Deslauriers (Sebastien1 Cordeau) was born about 1635 in Dangeau, Chateaudun Beauce, Eure-et-Loir, France, and died Bet. 03 Feb 1678 - 21 Jan 1681 in Île d'Orléans, QC. He married Catherine Latour 17 Nov 1659 in Notre Dame de Québec City, QC (ct 09, Audouart), daughter of Francois Latour and Catherine Charland. She was born about 1639 in Ste. Eustache, Paris, Île de France, France, and died 03 Feb 1678 in Ste. Famille de l'Île d'Orléans, QC.

Notes for Jean Cordeau-dit-Deslauriers:
A baker, Jean was born about 1635 in Dangeau (near Châteaudun) in the Beauce region of Orléanais, the son of Sébastien Cordeau and Lubine Chapelier or Sappillière.
His surname was Cordeau and his nickname was Deslauriers (of the laurel tree). This most likely was his military nickname. All French soldiers received a nickname when they enlisted in the army. This name identified what company he was in.
In La Population du Canada en 1666, Marcel Trudel lists Jean as "already married in France," with Catherine as "wife #2, illegitimate."
The family may have already moved to the Île d'Orléans by the time daughter Marie was baptized on 05 November 1664 at Château-Richer. The parish of Sainte Famille was not created until 1666, and Château-Richer was the closest parish at the time. Pierre was baptized at Sainte Famille, Île d'Orléans on 06 August 1667, but sadly he, Marie and Augustin all died some time after that year's census. In the 1666 census at Île d'Orléans he was recorded as being 30 years old and 32 in the 1667 census.
Jean Cordeau dit Deslauriers died on the Île d'Orléans some time after Catherine and before 21 January 1681. Nicolas Delaunay was named guardian for son Jacques (called Jean in court records), with Jean de Blois as trustee.



Notes for Catherine Latour:
"Filles à Marier", page 188, Catherine LaTour was born about 1639 in the parish of Saint-Eustache in Paris, the daughter of master surgeon François Latour and Catherine Charlay. She came to Canada in 1659, as a single girl.
On 17 November 1659, Catherine married Jean Cordeau dit Deslauriers in Québec City. Neither spouse could sign the marriage contract drawn up 09 November by notary Audouart. She was listed as being 28 in both the 1666 and the 1667 census.
Catherine Latour dite Sirnonet died 03 February 1678 and was buried the next day at Sainte Famille, lie d'Orléans.

=======================
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:
http://www.genealogie.umontreal.ca/en/leprdh.htm

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
