Hi, I am posting the data and notes that I have for some of my pioneer ancestors, in hopes that they may be of interest to some of you that are doing research on your ancestors.

Descendants of Jean Cochon/Cauchon
Compiled by Janet Manseau Donaldson
Use as a guide

Generation No. 1

       1. Jean1 Cochon/Cauchon was born about 1591 in Seine Maritime, Dieppe, Rouen, Normandie, France, and died 11 Jul 1673 in Château Richer, Montmorency, QC. He married (1) Marguerite Cointel/Conterel about 1619 in St. Jacques de Dieppe, Rouen, Normandie, France. She was born about 1595 in Seine Maritime, Dieppe, Rouen, Normandie, France, and died 09 Jan 1633 in Seine Maritime, Dieppe, Rouen, Normandie, France. He married (2) Jeanne Abraham 02 Apr 1633 in St. Jacques de Dieppe, Rouen, Normandie, France. She was born about 1603 in St. Jacques de Dieppe, Seine Maritime, Normandie, France, and died 19 Nov 1674 in Château Richer, Montmorency, QC.

Notes for Jean Cochon/Cauchon:
He originated from Dieppe in Normandie, now the department of the Seine-Maritime. Jean Cochon/Cauchon was born about 1591. His name is quite interesting. When I made a computer translation it came up "Jean Pig".
He was married twice in this city. First of all in 1619, with Marguerite Cointerel who died in January of 1633. Then on April 2 (the same year), he married Jeanne Abraham.
This pioneer first arrived in New France with his second wife Jeanne in 1638 and children from both of his marriages.
John Cochon/Cauchon must have been educated in France, during an era where illiteracy was the norm. He signed his name in a very beautiful writing. His friends and neighbors often requested his services. As early as 1652, he becomes fiscal procurer of Château Richer. He also filled the job of church register, for the parish of Notre Dame, at Château Richer.
He is recorded in the 1666 Beaupre census as being 75 and his wife Jeanne Abraham was 63. Their son Pierre Couchon-dit-LaFontaine was living with them at age 35. His other children are listed separate with their families.
Jeanne Abraham died before her husband, sometime between 1667 and 1673. The ancestor John Cauchon died on 11 July 1673.

Notes for Marguerite Cointel/Conterel:
She most likely died of childbirth, when she gave birth to her son Nicolas.

Notes for Jeanne Abraham:
Jette has her as dying in France. I find it difficult to believe that after her husband died she went to France while in her 90s. It was too difficult to travel by sailboat in those days.

Notes for Marguerite Drouin:

Children of Jean Gagnon and Marguerite Drouin are:
       40       i.       Jean4 Gagnon, born 02 Jul 1672 in Château Richer, Montmorency, QC; died 03 Aug 1748 in St. François de l'Île d'Orléans, QC. He met (1) Marguerite-Marie Bouchard about 1693 in Unknown, QC; born 10 Mar 1674 in Ste. Anne de Beaupré, Montmorency, QC; died 08 Feb 1724 in Rivière Ouelle, Kamouraska, QC. He married (2) Anne-Marie-Jeanne Mesny, (Etienne & Cath. Laine) 16 Feb 1699 in St. François de l'Île d'Orléans, QC; born 13 Nov 1679 in St. François de l'Île d'Orléans, QC; died 28 Jan 1750 in St. François de l'Île d'Orléans, QC.

Notes for Marguerite-Marie Bouchard:
She was born on 10 March 1674 and baptized on the 16th at Sainte Anne de Beaupre. When she was 19 years old, Marguerite had her first of three illegitimate children, Jean Gagnon, born on 17 Sept. 1693. His father was Jean Gagnon, the son of Jean Gagnon and Marguerite Drouin. Marguerite Bouchard's son Jean Gagnon married Marguerite Marquet in 1722.
Then on 19 Oct.1696, we find her (in the birth information at PRDH) listed as the mother of another illegitimate child. This daughter named Marie Francoise Dubroc, born on 19 October 1696, was baptized at Rivière Ouelle on 25 January 1697. This daughter was the issue of another liaison, with the Bayonnais merchant Pierre Dubroc who, on 30 July 1697 (contract Chambalon), promised to pay Francois Dutertre 300 livres if he agreed to keep the child, raise her and educate her as if she was his own daughter. This child's father is listed only as Dubroc. Marguerite Bouchard's daughter Marie Francoise Dubroc married Alexis Lavoie on 7 Jan. 1724.
On 29 July 1697, Marguerite Bouchard was married for the first time. She married Francois Dutartre. He born in 1670's son of Claude and Marie Giloux, from Saint-Michel d'Angers, Anjou (Maine-et-Loire). He was noted as being at the Hôtel Dieu in Québec City on 17 Nov 1695 at the age of 25. That August, Marguerite found herself pregnant once more. Together Francois and Marguerite had only one child. A son, Francois was born on 11 May 1698. It seems that Marguerite's husband did not stay around for the birth of his son. Jette claims that he left for Old France 12 years before he died there in 1709. This would have put him in Europe in 1697. He never returned to Canada. Their son Francois Dutarte married Marie Gertrude Dube in 1721.
On 21 July 1704 (while her husband was still alive in Old France), Marguerite gave birth to another "Enfant Naturel" (illegitimate child) named Jean Baptiste-dit-Guillaume Soucy. His father was Guillaume Soucy/Lavigne. Their son Jean Baptiste married Catherine Demers/Dumais in 1726.
Life must has been very difficult for Marguerite during those pioneering days in New France (Canada). Her mother died before she turned 8 and her father then married a widow with two young children of her own. Those times were difficult even when ones husband was around to help provide for the family. In order to survive with her children, she may have had to live with her father . She died on 8 Feb. 1724, just one month after her daughter married Alexis Lavoie.

Court Cases
In 1693, Marguerite's father Michel did not hide his shame to see an illegitimate child born to his minor daughter Marguerite. The child was baptized at L'Ancienne-Lorette on 17 September by the Jesuit Michel-Germain de Couvert. He was given the same first name as his father Jean Gagnon. For Michel Bouchard, the matter did not remain there. He demanded reparation from the young man who had seduced his daughter and he sued him until he received satisfaction. The matter was brought to the Provost of Québec who, on 14 November, condemned Gagnon. The latter filed an appeal on the 18th and brought his case before the Sovereign Council which heard it on the 23rd of the same month. The tribunal of the lower court had ordered Gagnon to take care of the child and to feed and raise him in the Catholic and Roman religion until he reached an age to earn his living and learn a trade. Meanwhile, he must pay 20 sols a day to Marguerite Bouchard, in addition to giving alms of 100 sols to the poor of the General-Hospital of Québec and to pay 200 livres in damages to the mother.
The case was continued on 22 December 1693 and 11 January 1694. At that time, the Council ordered the suit be continued "for reasons of crime of Rape and subornation and drugs claimed given to the said Bouchard in order to make her lose the child with which she was pregnant".
During the lawsuits, the child would be entrusted to a nurse to whom Gagnon would provide the necessary clothes in addition to 10 sols daily.
The suit ended on 27 February, in an out-of-court settlement, reached before the notary Chambalon between Michel Bouchard and Gagnons lawyer, Charles Aubert de la Chesnaye. The latter insisted on ending the lawsuits, in order, he said, to terminate the lawsuits. Such continuation, he reasoned, would only serve to destroy Gagnon and use up the parties assets. The agreement provided that Gagnon take charge of the child, have him fed and supported by his nurse until the age of 20, in addition to paying the 230 livres which the lawyer paid to Michel Bouchard in order to put an end to the case.
The last years of Michel Bouchard give us a glimpse of what had become of the man in his new city environment. He was not only a tavern keeper but also a businessman with all the problems which that brought. We see him also fulfilling his religious duties. The unfortunate adventure with his daughter Marguerite being amicably settled, Michel Bouchard went on to live his life in moments of calm interrupted with a few other lawsuits, less important than the other ones. On the first of March 1694, the carpenter Robert Choret had the Sovereign Council intervene to carry out a sentence from the Provost against the tavern-keeper Bouchard from whom he claimed 70 livres for food provided to Marguerite's child for two months and ten days. We know now who kept the child during this time. Settled at Québec since his remarriage to Marguerite Lerouge in 1686, Choret already had a large family of 17 children between two marriages.

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.

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.

Most of my information for the 1800-1900s comes 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.

It is like I said in the beginning; 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
