It is not properly prefaced with the term dit in this case, as TEINTURIER simply was his trade, that of 'tinter', or dyer of wool and cloth, spelled Teinturier.

Chatillon is the proper spelling of that name as opposed to Chatillion which is commonly misspelled in old records etc.
Pierre Godin who arrived in Canada in 1653 had the middle name Jacques.

Pierre`s wife Jeanne ROUSSELIERE was the daughter of Thomas Roussel.

His son was the godson of the founder of later Montreal, Paul de Chomedy and Pierre`s son was titled Sieur de Beausejour.
Gabriel wasnt an early settler of Saint Anne, he was the founder of Saint Anne.
"Pierre and his wife were both part of “La Grande Recrue de 1653"
Technically, the "One Hundred Men Who Saved Canada" as one writer styled the men aboard the ship LaFleche, were the La Grande Recrue. The women followed but it was the men who were captioned as the party of the grand recrue.
"Notes for Andree-Angelique JEANNES: Name also appears in some records as Andree Angelique COCHON, however the COCHON family has never been connected to the GODIN’s."

There were two Pierres so perhaps that is the confusion here but the second did marry Andree Cochon which as you may know means Pig in French as they were suspected Jews. The Godins themselves were on the Spanish Inquisition death list of condemned Jews or suspected Jews.
"Baptized at St. Vorle Church, Montreal".
There is no such church in Montreal, its in Chatillon.

PS: I have the Godin family history outlined on my website for any who care to peruse.
