In Reply to: Charron-dit-Ducharme, Piette, and other related families by Julie Chlarson of 66

I am descended from Pierre Piet dit Trempe, the brother of your Marguerite Piette. Their father was Jean Piet who immigrated from Saintonge, France in 1665. He lived in Sorel, Quebec. Story has it that Jean Piet was nicknamed Trempe la Croute, because, due to dental problems, he had to soak his bread to soften it before he ate it. Around 1670 Jean Piet married Marguerite Chemereau of France. Marguerite is included in the list of "The King's daughters" , a group of over 700 young women of marriagable age who were sent from France to Quebec between 1663 and 1673 by King Louis XIV.

Jacques Trempe has done extensive research on the descendents of Jean Piet dit Trempe.
