Hi Peter,
I do not have any info about the Peloquin family crest but I do have a fair amount of info about your origins. My mother is a Peloquin!

I believe that most Peloquin in North America are descendant of Francois Peloquin dit Credit who was the son of Mathurin & Ambroise Syllart from Niort, Poitou, France. Francois came to Canada probably in 1665 with the Regimant de Carignan Salieres as he was a soldier in the St-Ours Company. He married Marie Niquet in Trois-Rivieres on July 20, 1699 and he died in St-Ours in 1727 at the age of 70. Most of his descendants are in the Sorel, Quebec area where I am from.

If you need more info, please e-mail me.
