Hi, I am posting the 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. Enjoy, Janet

Descendants of Andre Parent

Generation No. 1

       1. Andre1 Parent was born about 1600 in Saitonge, France. He married Marie Condre. She was born about 1600 in Saitonge, France.
       
Child of Andre Parent and Marie Condre is:
+       2       i.       Pierre2 Parent, born about 1626 in Mortagne sur Gironde, Saintes, Saitonge, France; died 05 Aug 1698 in Beauport, QC.


Generation No. 2

       2. Pierre2 Parent (Andre1) was born about 1626 in Mortagne sur Gironde, Saintes, Saitonge, France, and died 05 Aug 1698 in Beauport, QC. He married Jeanne Badeau 09 Feb 1654 in Québec City, QC, daughter of Jacques Badeau and Anne Hardouin/Ardouin. She was born about 1638 in Ste. Marguerite of La Rochelle, Aunis, France, and died 22 Nov 1706 in Beauport, QC.

Notes for Pierre Parent:
He was from Mortagne on the Gironde, in the old province of Saintonge, about 1638. It is a commune in Charente Maritime today, in the Saintes district, in the south-east of Royan, in France. Pierre Parent was the son of Andre Parent and Marie Coudrey or Coudré. He signed a three year contract to work in New France and arrived at Beauport about 1650. Pierre could not sign his name so he assigned someone to sign for him. He was a master butcher. I am surprised that he never obtained the "dit name" (nickname ) of Boucher. Perhaps he did not wish to take on this dit name because there were about 6 other Bouchers in Canada at the time.
Pierre Parent married Jeanne Badeau in Beauport on February 9, 1654 in the house of Sieur Giffard.
His age varies in different census. In 1667 they recorded him as being 50 years old. In 1681 at Beauport, he was a butcher listed as being 55 years old with 13 Children (Joseph, Jean and Etienne were 7 year old triplets), 4 domestic workers, 4 rifles, 1 hand gun, 18 horned animals, 24 goats and he owned 100 arpents of land (about 150 English acres). This couple is very prolific. They eventually had eighteen children, of which fifteen carried out twenty-two marriages.
Pierre Parent died on Tuesday, August 5, 1698 and was buried the following day at Beauport. His wife Jeanne Badeau died on November 22, 1706, she was also buried at the cemetery of Beauport.

Notes for Jeanne Badeau:
She arrived in New France with her parents and siblings in 1647, when her father signed a contract to work in New France. She was about 9 at that time.
Jeanne was about 16 when she got married and had 18 children 1655 and 1683, when she was about 43 years old. She had triplets, the exact date of their birth has not been found, however they were listed as being 7 years old in the 1681 census. Jeanne also had a set of twins, Jean and Joseph. These twins had a double wedding and married Belanger sisters. The twins died within two months of each other and both at Hôtel Dieu ( this was the Québec City hospital for the very sick and dying at the time).
In the 1681 Beauport census her name was spelt "Badault". Whether it was spelt Badeau or Badault, the pronunciation was the same.

Notes for Joseph Parent:
He was a farmer, toolmaker and brewer. On 9 Mar 1706 he signed up to work for Cadillac for three years at his trade as a blacksmith. He was also hired by Cadillac as a brewer for Detroit. Against the clergy's wishes, there was an abundance of brandy always on hand in the public storehouse. As early as 1706 a brewery was erected. He was one of the first settlers in Cadillac's Village, now know as Detroit, Michigan in 1707. It has been said that some of the Detroit historians claim that Joseph Parent and Pierre Roy were living among the Indians in the neighborhood of Detroit, before the arrival of Cadillac and his party, so consequently that they were the first white people in this area of Michigan, but not directly in Detroit as Cadillac points out. Three of their daughters are listed as part of the first pioneers to settle Detroit. A young slave of about 21 or 22 years old named Joseph Paris, called Escabia, belonged to Joseph Parent . The Detroit directory states that he died on 21 Jan 1710.
