A Roy from Canada via Detroit and Illinois settled at Pointe Coupée during
the 1740s. Two of his sons moved to the Opelousas prairies in the 1780s.
During the early antebellum period, some of his grandsons settled at
Atakapas, but most of his descendants remained in St. Landry Parish. No
other Roy family in Louisiana, Acadian or non-Acadian, equaled this one in
numbers:
Descendants of Joseph ROY dit Châtellerault (c1709-1761)
Joseph dit Châtellerault, son of Emond Roy and Marie-Anne Janvier, born at
Ste.-Anne, near Québec, Canada, in c1709, got his dit from his paternal
grandfather, Michel Roy dit Châtellerault, who came from Poitou to Canada in
the late 1670s. Joseph "first worked out of Detroit, then settled for a
time in Kaskaskia, Illinois," where he married Marie-Madeleine Perthuis.
After his wife's death, Joseph drifted down to Pointe Coupée, where he
remarried to Pérrine, daughter of Nicolas Lacour of Natchez, in January
1744. Their daughters married into the Goudeau, Guilcrest or Gilchrist,
Hébert (French Creole, not Acadian), and Leonard families. Joseph dit
Châtellerault died at Pointe Coupée in October 1761; the priest who recorded
his burial did not give Joseph's age at the time of his death, but he
probably was in his early 50s. One of his daughters settled at Ascension.
His two married sons moved to the Opelousas prairies by the 1780s, where
they created vigorous lines of the family.
1
Oldest son Pierre died at Pointe Coupée in October 1748. The priest who
recorded his burial said that Pierre was 10 years old when he died, but,
judging from his parents' marriage date, he probably was younger.
2
Joseph-Noël, born at Pointe Coupée in May 1745, married Marie-Louise,
daughter of Gaspard Bélonie of New Orleans, at Pointe Coupée in July 1769,
and remarried to Anne, called Manette and Nanette, daughter of French Creole
Nicolas Bordelon, at Pointe Coupée in May 1770. They moved to Grand
Prairie, north of present-day Opelousas, in the 1780s. Their son
Joseph-Noël, fils was born at Pointe Coupée in May 1771, Jean-Baptiste was
baptized at Pointe Coupée, age unrecorded, in November 1775, Valerien, also
called Valéry, at age 6 months in March 1781, Leufroi was born probably at
Opelousas in c1782, and another Joseph was born in February 1784 but died at
age 9 in August 1793. They also had a son named Solastie or Lastie. Their
daughters married into the Bordelon, Dupré, Nezat, and Wyble families.
Joseph, fils served as major domo, or trustee, of the Opelousas church. His
first succession record, which called him a widower, was filed at the
Opelousas courthouse in October 1807. Joseph, fils, described as a "native
of Pointe Coupee and inhabitant of this parish of St. Landry for about 40
years," died "at his home at a place called 'Le vieux vilage (the Old Town)
and received all the sacraments with sentiments of a very strong faith and
great piety" in January 1817; he was 71 years old; his final succession
record was filed at the Opelousas courthouse in February 1818 Two of his
sons settled in St. Martin Parish, but his other sons and most of his
grandsons remained in or returned to St. Landry Parish. A few of his
descendants married Acadians, but most of them married Creoles and fellow
French Canadians. They were especially fond of spouses from the Nezat and
Fontenot families.

daughter of French Creole Joseph Carriere, at Opelousas in 1794 and

unrecorded, in March 1798, a child, perhaps a son, name unrecorded, died

records were filed at the Opelousas courthouse in December 1824 and
January 1825; he would have been in his early 50s.

DeVillier of Petit Bois, at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, in
January 1818. Their son Valière, fils was born in St. Landry Parish in
February 1818, Valéry le jeune in November 1824, Joseph le jeune in
August 1829, Lastie le jeune in March 1831, and Louis, a twin, in May

Nezat, and Wyble families. Valière, père remarried to first cousin
Marie Euphonie or Fannie, called Fannie, daughter of his uncle Solastie
Roy and widow of Sosthène Arceneaux, in a civil ceremony in St. Martin

born in St. Landry Parish in May 1851 but died at age 5 1/2 in September
1856, and Victor Henry Landry was born in February 1859 when his father
was in his early 60s. In November 1850, the federal census taker in St.
Landry Parish counted a single slave--a 50-year-old mulatto female--on
Valière's Roy's farm. Valière died in St. Landry Parish in September
1860; the priest who recorded his burial said that Valière was 64 years
old when he died; his succession record was filed at the Opelousas
courthouse 2 days after his death.

at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, in August 1835. Joseph Noël
III's succession record was filed at the Opelousas courthouse in January
1838; he would have been only 27 years old that year. Their daughter
married into the Carriere and Langlois families. Joseph and Uranie had
no sons, so this line of the family, except for its blood, did not
continue. In November 1850, the federal census taker in St. Landry
Parish counted 2 slaves--a 22-year-old black male, and a 10-year-old
black males--on Widow Joseph Roy's farm; this may have been Uranie
Bordelon.

emancipation in November 1834. He married Octavie, daughter of French
Creole Damonville Dejean, at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, in
