Notes for Christophe Crevier, Sieur de La Meslee:
Christophe Crevier was baptized at Sainte-Cande-le-Jeune, Rouen, France, on February 17, 1611. He grew up in Rouen, where he met and married Jeanne Lenard or Enard. He was twenty-two and his bride was fourteen. They spent a few years at La Rochelle in Aunis before embarking, at the latest in 1639, for New France. They arrived as a family of three, daughter Jeanne having been born in France about 1636, and settled in at Trois-Revières where Christophe worked as a baker, but probably earned more as a fur trader.

He had his business as a baker in the settlement of Trois-Rivières. Christophe was married in the parish of St. Cande le Jeune de Rouen and he was born there. He died after his will of the 1 Dec 1662 by Ameau and the 26 Nov 1663 in Trois Rivieres. He was mentioned the 7 Dec 1639 in Trois Rivieres as a baker

According to Father Archange Godbout, Christophe Crevier was one of the earliest and best known inhabitants of Trois-Rivières. On 7 December 1639, we may read his name, entered for the first time, in the local registry, when he became godfather to a young Indian boy. On 6 January 1640, Jeanne Lameslée (Enard), wife of baker Crevier, was godmother to a small Indian girl. On the following 14 May, still at Trois-Rivières, Christophe and Jeanne had their son François baptized. On 3 April 1642, another son, Jean, was brought to the font: He would become the future Seigneur (lord) of Saint-François-du-Lac.

Sometime between 1643 and 1645 the family returned to France. We do not know exactly why, but our ancestor probably made this decision once his commitment contract was ended. Their first stay in Canada must have been for at least four years because they had four sons during this period: Antoine, François, Nicolas and Jean.

They lived at La Rochelle where Christophe worked as a merchant and wife Jeanne continued to have children. Daughter Marguerite was born in 1645 and Jérôme, Joseph, Marie, and Jean-Baptiste followed about yearly intervals. On January 20, 1647, Christophe attended the marriage of Barthelemy Gaudin at La Rochelle.

However, on November 1, 1650, we find our ancestor back in Canada where he bought a lot in the town of Québec with 80 feet of frontage on the north-west side of Rue Saint-Louis. Is was a good location, with the Palace of the Senechaussee on one side and the house of Charles Phelippeaux on the other. Nevertheless, it was resold to Antoine Leboneme dit Lalime for 600 livres, on July 13, 1657.

It appears that on this same November 1, 1650, our ancestor embarked onboard the ship "Le Chasseur," which was the last to leave for France that year. Back in La Rochelle, on July 8, 1651, the merchant Christophe Crevier paid off a debt of 42 livres 14 sols to Marie Capin, the widow of Martin Poirier.

Soon afterward, the family returned to Canada, probably at the same time as Father Lallemant, about October 13, 1651, aboard on of the three vessels whose arrival was noted at Québec on that day.

On their return to Canada, the Creviers settled in the seigneurie of Saint-Françôis-du-Lac, near Beauport. On November 19, 1651, Christophe bought a piece of frontage, 4 x 24 arpents, from Mathurin Francehetot, for 430 livres. In 1653, he ceded one arpent to Pierre Loignon; then the following year, two more arpents went to Pierre Paradis. On February 1, 1652, Crevier obtained
seven arpents of frontage in the same seigneurie, near the river known as the
Cabane-aux-Taupiers, from the Jesuits. This land was also resold in 1654 to Nicolas Le Vieux de Hauteville for 2500 livres because it had a house, barn and stable.

This last transaction marks the return of the Creviers to Trois-Revières. The impending marriage of eldest daughter Jeanne to Pierre Boucher, in 1652, which undoubtedly weighed heavily in the balance when our ancestor made this decision. To gain a son-in-law, he would come to lose a few sons to the wrath of the Iroquois.

François was killed on May 25, 1653; the other, Antoine, probably in 1652 and Jean in 1693. These incursions by the Iroquois were thought to be a result of the marriage of their daughter, Jeanne, to Pierre Boucher, Governor of Trois-Rivieres. The Jesuit Relations of 1661 tell of the fate of 14 year old son Antoine, by citing a letter from François Hertel: "As for the little Antoine de la Meslée, this poor child filled me with compassion, because he had become the servant of these barbarians, and they killed him with knife blows as they hunted him down."

It was on March 9, 1653, that the said Christophe Crevier, Sieur de la Meslée, received two parcels of land, each two by five arpents, on the Ile Saint-Christophe, from the Jesuits, along with Jacques Bertrand, Bacques Brisset, Pierre Danommeau and Michel Lemay, all inhabitants of Trois-Rivières. During the ensuing years, Crevier bought out the shares of his neighbors and this land came to be known as the "Fief St-Christophe." It is still called St-Christophe today. On August 20, 1656, his son-in-law, Pierre Boucher, accepted these lots in trade for a much larger piece which was washed by the waters of the Faverel River at Cap-de-la-Madeleine. Christophe Crevier acquired other lands, chiefly in the neighborhood of Trois-Rivières and in the commune of Lac Saint-Pierre, in addition to owning his homestead in Trois-Rivières, on the present day corner of rues Nortre-Dame and des Casrnes. What's more, toward the end of his life, he was ceded a seigneurie on the Gaspé peninsula, but he was too old to work it.

In June 1655, Benjamin Sulte reported that the first hearings of the newly established court of Trois-Revières opened with the Crevier-Laframboise case: Jeanne Enard, plaintiff, versus Marie Sedillot, defendant wife of Bertarnd Fafard dit Laframboise, involving the care of a calf by Enard on behalf of Sedillot. In payment, Jeanne Enard wanted half of the calf when it was slaughtered. Judge Pierre Boucher, faced by his complaining mother-in-law, rendered a judgment worthy of Solomon himself: The amount of the claim would be paid in kind to the plaintiff when the calf was killed, specifically, some of the veal would be given her. This resulted in an award considerably less than desired by the plaintiff, thus reinforcing the reputation of Pierre Boucher for bravery in the line of Duty!

On November 3, 1657, Christophe was cited in the "Journal des Jesuites" as having led Iroquois prisoners from Trois-Rivières to Québec. This resulted form an incident in which Christophe brought five Mohawk prisoners to the governor for questioning concerning the murder of three colonists at Montreal.

On December 1, 1662, our ancestor had his will recorded, "being in bed sick in body but nevertheless sane inspirit andjudgment." Shortly thereafter death took its toll. In November 1663, two documents certified that Christophe had indeed died. Jeanne Enard lived several more years. She kept active by dealing in the fur trade and, in conjunction with her sons and sons-in-law, in the less honorable business of eau-de-vie (spirits, brandy). This was one of the reasons for the exparation and departure of Pierre Boucher from Trois-Rivières to his Eden on the Ilse Percée (Boucherville).

On April 17, 1675, an act by notary Ameau reveals that Jeanne Enard was still living: She gave Louis Gaultier de la Vérendrye, a homestead situated up-river from Trois-Rivières. It was the same property in the commune of Lac Saint-Pierre ceded to Christophe Crevier in 1658. In the census of 1681, Jeanne Enard, age 62, lived in the region of Montreal, probably at the home of her daughter Marguerite, widow of surgeon Michel Gamelin dit Lafontaine. Mentioned with her are her grandchildren Marguerite and Jean Gamelin. After this, the last general census of the seventeenth century, Jeanne Enard seems to have fallen into oblivion.

According to genealogist Archange Godbout, at least ten children, six of whom left progeny, were born to Christophe Crevier and Jeanne Enard. Jean, the third son, was the best known of all: He was the seigneur of Saint-François-du-Lac and left many children. To the everlasting embarrassment of Pierre Boucher, his "in-laws" engaged in he shady business with ardor and elan. They traded powder, shot, firearms, blankets, clothing and brandy for furs.

Notes for Jacques Bertault:
Bertault, established his residence in the Three Rivers area. On March 9, 1655, he acquired one seventh of "Ile de Mileu", the largest island in the area. Christophe Crevier owned two sevenths, and the remainder was owned by equal shares by Jean Pacaud, Michel Lemay, Pierre Dandonneau dit Lajeunesse, and Jacqwues Brisset. In the following five years, Crevier would buy his neighbor's shares and would become sole proprietor. The island was then renamed Ile de St. Christophe, after its new owner. Bertault also acquired another property from Father Delaplace on June 4, 1656. There was also a third parcel which had been conceded to his wife by Governor d'Ailleboust on June 7, 1650. In 1668, Bertault decided to build on the last parcel, the location of which was described as being between the heirs of Sebastien Dodier on the southwest and by the palisade on the northeast.

It does not seem as if Bertault spent much time farming for himself. Two records in notary Ameau's minutes seem to confirm this theory. On August 16, 1656, he bought grain from Jean Picaud. Had he been cultivating his own farm, there would not have been a need for this purchase. The other contract dated April 26, 1662, was the settlement, by arbitral judgment, of differences he was having with Michel Leneuf du Herrison, for whom he was working as a farmer, Bertault was also a Locksmith and it seems unlikely that he could work two farms and also work at his trade.

He was a hard working individual who provided well for his family because they seemed to have lived quite comfortably. The Bertaults, who had seemingly lived a quiet, uneventful life rearing their children and tending to daily obligations, were to end their days in the most tragic manner imaginable. Their
names would brush the lips of every Frenchman in the colony.

The story revolves around their fourth child, Elisabeth Therese, more commononly called Isabelle. At the age of ten, she was promised to Charles Denart dit Laplume, son of Simon Denart and Simone ______ ?. The contract, drawn up on February 14, 1669, was annuled on August 1, 1670. Denart most likely returned to France because their exists no further mention of his name in any documents. What is perplexing and daunting to the imagination is why Bertault was so anxious to marry his daughter at such an early age. Although a girl of twelve was of legal age to marry during this era, not many did. Moreover, there were more young men than young women in the colony. This was the time when contingencies of young girls were being brought over from France to help balance the inequity of the population.

But then, Bertault believed in early marriages for his daughters; Marguerite was married at twelve, and Suzanne at fourteen. Another daughter, Jeanne, married at twenty, most likely because she had a choice in the matter, since her parents had both died soon after her twelfth birthday.

After the annulment of Isabelle's marriage contract, Bertault wasted no time in looking for another husband for his daughter. Madame Bertault had been called away, with her husband's permission, to help with the delivery of a new baby at the home of Sieur Aube, when her husband was approached for his daughters hand. The young man in question was twenty-nine year old Julien Latouche, Sieur de Champlain, native of La Rochelle, Aunis, France. He had arrived in the colony with the Carignan Regiment in the Company of Grandfontaine. Bertault felt that Latouche had a promising future and would be able to provide a comfortable life for his daughter. He had been working as a farmer for Madame de Lafontaine, with whom he had obligated himself for a period of five years, giving him ample time to earn enough money to purchase a farm of his own.

Isabelle protested against the marriage as much as a young, obedient child could. She pleaded with her father to change his decision, confessing that she did not like this man, but Bertault held firm; he knew best. Isabelle's only hope was that her mother could intercede in her behalf.

When Madame Bertault returned home, the news of the impending marriage was broken to her. As she glanced across the room at her daughter's red and swollen eyes, she knew that all was not well at home. At the first opportune moment, Madame Bertault approached her husband to voice her dissaproval of this union, affirming that she could never consent to this marriage. Bertault was not pleased that his wife disagreed with his good judgment. They quarrelled, but neither could change the others mind. In the end, Bertault shouted that he was the master of the house and that the marriage would take place as he had
planned.

It was not a blissful union from the onset. Latouche proved himself to be lazy, domineering, uncaring, abusive, and addicted to alcohol. Bertault soon had to admit that he had erred when he had forced his daughter to marry this man. Not having a farm of his own, Latouche had undertaken to work the farm of Lafontaine Poulin and later, the one of Jutra Lavallee. He lost them both, either through laziness or drunkeness. Bertault concluded that he and his wife could accomplish more work with a pickaxe than Latouche could with two bulls and a plough. Besides not working, Latouche did not even provide for the everyday necessities of his child bride, including food. Very often, Bertault would send over eggs, bread, and meat, to his daughters home, or else he would invite her for dinner. Not having enough to eat was the more merciful part of Isabelle's existence, the more tragic and more heartbreaking part was that her husband beat her frequently, sometimes until she was bloodied. A child of twelve could not defend herself against a twenty-nine year old man, much less one who had been trained in the military. When he beat her, she would scream at him, "I wish that you were dead".

Little Isabelle cried many times on her Mother's shoulder and her mother cried with her. Isabelle begged and pleaded with her mother to find a way to get her out of this marriage. The poor child could not bear her ntolerable existance. On several occasions, her father had tried to reason with Latouche, to have more patience with his young wife, but all pleas fell on deaf ears.

The days, the weeks and the months went by, and the Bertaults agonized as they watched their child in such dire misery. The pain og guilt added to their burden, because Isabelle had been forced into this brutal, loveless union. They helped their child in whatever fashion or manner possible, but this did not alleviate the pain that she went through. To the Bertault's their seemed to be no end, no way out of this trajedy. Although the Bertaults had difficulty in finding a solution to their problem, there were different avenues open to them. They had recourse to the courts and if, for some reason, this had not proven satisfactory, they could have taken their daughter home. Unfortunately, they did neither.

On Sunday afternoon, May 15, 1672, Bertault, his wife, and Isabelle crosed the river by canoe to go to work on the family farm. At the same time, Latouche and Jean Gauthier were leading cattle across the river, during which time, Latouche told the family that he would meet them the following day.

Latouche kept his word and met them on Monday. By this time, a plan had been contrived by Bertault, his wife, and their daughter, Isabelle. There was a poisonous plant known to the settlers that killed their hogs. Madame Bertault felt that these tiny leaves, half the length of a finger, could resolve all of their problems and they could live in peace once again. There had to be a plan, one that could not fail. They decided that in soup, which already had so many other ingredients in it, the leaves would go unnoticed. Madame Bertault prepared the soup and when it came time to add the poisonous herb, she decided that four or five leaves would be sufficient. When it was time to eat, the potion was served to Latouche.

What went through their minds as they watched him eat the soup? Were they nervous? Could they feel their hearts poundingfrantically? Isabelle, at age thirteen knew right from wrong, but was she mature enough not to be influenced by her parents? What kind of people were the Bertaults? The father had forced his daughter into an early marriage, yet he had shown compassion toward his child in her time of need. The question remains, what kind of people resort to murder to resolve any problem.

When the soup was served, Latouche ate heartily. They watched for a sign. Perhaps he would bend over with stomach cramps, or gasp in pain, or perhaps his color would turn to sickly green. Latouche finished his soup and to their astonishment, he did not show any ill effects whatsoever. The plan had failed.

The following day, one hour after sunset, Madame Bertault went to see her son-in-law who was in the barn. As she entered, she said to him mockingly, "Now there's a nice son-in-law!" Latouche snarled back, "Why aren't I very nice?" They continued to scream insults at each other until Madame Bertault, who could no longer stand the sight of her son-in-law, picked up a hoe, which was leaning against a barrel and struck him. The blow had no effect on him. He lunged forward and grabbed her. As they scuffled, Latouche bit her fingers. Madame Bertault could not overcome his strength. She yelled, "Isabelle, Isabelle, come and help me." The young girl wanted to help her mother, but she could not find the courage within herself. To poison someone is one thing, but to beat someone to death, is another. Monsieur Bertault heard the commotion and ran to the barn. As he entered, he saw Latouche and his wife struggling. He tried to seperate them and as he did, Latouche grabbed him by the hair, pulled it and yanked at it. In the melee, Latouche grabbed madame Bertault by the collar, attempted to kick her, but Monsieur Bertault managed to stop him. Madame Bertault grabbed the hoe, swung it a second time hitting Latouche on the head. The blood streamed down his face and he fell. Bertault grabbed the hoe away from his wife, believing she did not have sfficient strength to strike the blows. Isabelle closed her eyes; she could not watch this. As Bertault lifted the hoe to strike another blow, Latouche sacreamed, "Help! You're killing me!" The hoe fell on its target and there was more blood. Latouche felt weak. He grabbed his father-in-law, but was easily repelled. Latouche continued to scream. the tension was mounting and Madame Bertault did not want her husband to reconsider because of Latouche's incessant screaming. she yelled, "Kill him! Kill Him!" Bertault struck his son-in-law again and again. With each blow there was more blood. It was everywhere. Bertault went to hit him again, stopped in mid-air, and threw the hoe down. The deed was done. Latouche lay dead. Bertault wiped his blood covered hands on his blood soaked clothes and winced in disdain. It was time to go home.

At night there is a stilness in the air, a silence that makes every sound reverberate for a long distance. It was because of the quiet of the spring evening that someone heard the commotion emanating from the Bertault barn.

Jean Gauthier was with his brother-in-law, Louis Petit, on the other side of the river that evening. Gauthier and Petit knew Latouche well. In fact, Gauthier had spent the previous Sunday in his company. They heard a voice, which to them sounded like Latouche's screaming, "Oh my God, I am dead! You're killing me! You'll be hanged!" For an hour and a half, they listened to these repeated cries and they could even hear the blows as Latouche was being struck.

When the Bertaults came out of the barn, Gauthier shouted at Monsieur Bertault, "Go, wretch that you are! You killed your son-in-law, you'll be hanged. There are enough witnesses." Bertault turned to his wife and said, "Haven't I always told you that his would happen!" Madame Bertault was surprised and shocked that they had been witnessed, so much so that she remained speechless. The family went home. They were in trouble. After some thought, they returned to the barn. There was always a slight cance that Latouche was alive. As they entered the blood splattered barn, they saw that it had been wishfull thinking. What to do? The body could not remain in the barn. It was late and it was dark. Isabelle, who had passively watched her mother and father kill her husband, now had to help them. The three of them grabbed Latouche's lifeless and bloodied body and dragged it to the nearby river, where they disposed of it by throwing it into the water. If the body were ever recovered, no one would ever know how Latouche had died.

The following day, Gauthier and Petit had decided to cross the river in an attempt to find Latouche's body. Perhaps it was out of fright that they had brought along Pierre Pepin and Jean Herou dit Bourgainville, or perhaps their freinds insisted on accompanying them, having learned that Latouche had possibly been murdered the previous evening. The foursome found nothing but saw Bertault entering his house and decided to pay him a visit. Bertault came out of the house with his musket, removed it from its case, checked to see if it were loaded, and cocked it. To their questions, he answered that they would not find Latouche. The young men said "Then, you have killed him!" Bertault told them that he had not seen him since Monday because Latouche had gone to New England.

The following day, Thursday, May 19, Gauthier and Petit made there way to the Bertault barn to see what they could find. As they looked inside the barn, they gasped in horror. There was blood everywhere, on the ground, on barrels, on a hoe, and on an iron bar. They even found some stockings and some teeth which they believed to have belonged to the deceased. If they had any doubts in their minds about what they had heard the previous evening, the sight of what laid before them eliminated all doubt. They felt ill and needed fresh air. They walked out of the barn, stunned and a little afraid. They drew in deep breaths in an effort to revitalize themselves and stood there for a moment motionless, in disbelief. The night before, it had been a nightmare; but today, it was areality.

The young men left and went to the authorities to report their suspicions based on what they had heard and what they had seen. Their depositions were taken which led to the arrest of Jacques Bertault on the very same day. His wife and daughter had fled into the woods and could not be found.

Backround information:
Jean Gauthier, was the son of Gabriel Gauthier and Jeanne Chardavouenne.
Louis Petit, was the son of Nicolas Petit and Marie Pamponelle.
Jean Herou dit Bourgainville was the son of Jean and Marie Boyer.
Pierre Pepin, was the son of Guillaume Pepin, and Jeanne Mechin.

There was more damaging evidence. Bourgainville testified that on the previous Ssunday, Bertault had said to him that Latouche would die. "by no other hand than my own". Their own son, ten year old Nicolas, also testified against them. He related that his parents had left on the preceeding Sunday to go to their farm and they had subsequently returned. He added that his mother and sister had fled into the woods on Wednesday, but that his father had been arrested by two soldiers who had bound his feet in irons. He claimed that he had recently heard his mother say that she would kill Latouche some day and that he had also heard his sister say that she wished her husband was dead.

The official report reads as follows:

" The year one thousand, six hundred and seventy-two, the nineteenth day of May, I Severin Ameau, undersigned scribe of in Three Rivers certify having been told that last Sunday afternoon, Julien de la Tousche accompanied by his wife left with his father-in-law and mother-in-law, Jacques Bertault and Gilette baun, his wife, to go to their farm situated on the other side of the river of Three Rivers, facing their said home to plasnt their garden. And the following Tuesday, the said Julien de la Tousche was heard screaing, "Help, they're killing me" and a woman was heard saying, "Kill him, throw him into the river", After which the said Jacques Bertault would have returned to his house n Three Rivers, but the said de la Tousche did not return. Someone had crossed the river of Three Rivers in a canoe and having transported himself from the place which he had heard the screams, saw the said Jacques Bertault holding a gun. We believe that it was the said Bertault who killed that said de la Tousche, in view that he had formerly threatened him. Based on these assumptions, Sieur Jacques de Labadie, commandant of the said Three Rivers, had the said Bertault incarcerated. The said Gilette baune and her daughter, wife of the said de la Tousche, have fled. We have gone into their home where we have seized their possesions and have taken an inventory thereof in presence of Nicolas Bertault, son of the said Bertault, about ten years f age..."

The next day, Friday, May 20, appeared before Louis de Godefroy, Sieur de Nrmandville, fiscal procuror of Three Rivers, for questionning. At this articular time, the judge's bench may have been vacant or the judge may have een absent. For one of these two resons, the case was handled by the fiscal procurer When questioned, Bertalt claimed that he had not killed his son-in-law and that he did not know where he was. Whewn asked about the blood all over the barn, he answered that, that was the blood of three sturgeons which he had caught on the line of sieur de la Valliere. When asked if he had threatened to kill Latouche, he answered no and did not want to comment further. After Bertault was questioned he was confronted by each person who had testified against him, one at a time. In each case, he was asked if he knew them, if he believed them to be honest men, and if their existed any animosity between them.In each case, except for his son, Bertault answered tha he knew them and that each of them meant him harm.

The following day, Gillette Baune and Isabelle Bertault were found in the woods and arrested. They were brought before Louis de Godefroy for questioning.

Madame Bertault testified that Latouche had beaten his wife, that she and her husband had come to their daughters rescue, and a scuffle had ensued, whereby she had hit Latouche with a hoe in order to help her husband and with the intention of stopping the fight. She said Latouche fell on the spot. She added that during the melee both her and her husband were bitten by Latouche and showed her fingers as proof. Believing that Latouche was shaken, they returned to their home. Half an hour later, they returned to the barn and found him dead and dragged his body to the river.

Later in the day, Bertault and his wife were confronted and her depostion was read before both of them. Bertault was asked why his testimony differed so sharply from that of his wife's. He answered that he had not wanted to say anything until after his wife had been questioned and for this reason, he had denied all the testimony brought forth by the witnesses. He further avowed that her testimony was true.

After the prelimanary investigation, the htree prisoners were sent to Québec, where they could undergo a fair and equitable trial. The case was turned over to Intendant Talon, who gave copies of the sworn testimony to Monsieur Penseret, fiscal procuror. He, inturn, made a requistion to swear and interrogate the prisoners once again. To accomplish this, Talon turned the caseover to Sieur Chartier, lieutenant general, civil and criminal, on June 1.

The same day, Monsieur Chartier began the interrogations of the prisoners. The first one to be sworn in was Isabelle. She repeated more or less what she had testified to in Three Rivers concerning the murder, that it was in self defense. Among the questions asked and the answers given were:

Q. "When you were married , did you love your husband?"

A. "Not at all".

Q. "Why didn't you love him?"

A. "My father made me marry him without my consent, because he had a nice place on the farm of Madame de Lafontaine, for whom he was a farmer for five years, during which time he could earn enough money to buy himself a nice farm. The wife of Sieur Aube ws ready to have her baby asnd he asked my father to send my mother to help and she went. During this time, my father arranged the marriage. My mother did not want to consent to the union, but my father said, he was the master and the wedding took place."

Q. "Why did you not tell the priest (during the marriage ceremony) that you did not want Latouche for your husband?"
A. "My father was there, but my mother wasn't. If she would have been there I would have declared it."
Q. "Did your mother like Latouche at the time you married him?"
A. "Yes."
Q. "Are yu happy your husband is dead?"
A. "No, and I wish I were dead insted of him."
Q. "Why did you hit your husband and why did you help your father to kill him?"
A. "I did not help."
Q. "Why did your mother and father threaten your husband often?"
A. "They have not threatened him, neither one nor the other."
Q. "Why did your brother say to your mother that they had killed his brother-in-law?"
A. "He did not say that."
Q. "Why did your father say that the deceased was in New England after he had murdered him?"
A. "You will excuse me sir, he did not say that."
Q. "Wasn't your husband's voice heard in Three Rivers while he was being murdered?"
A. "It was my father who was screaming like that."

As Isabelle was questioned further, she maintained the innocence of her parents and insisted that her husband was killed in self defense.

The second one to be questioned was Jacques Bertault. By this time, he had serious doubts as to whether or not their story of self defense would hold and he was also very aware of what the punishment was for murder. He may have worked hard to provide a comfortable living for his family, but h was weak and spineless. When he was questioned, he attempted to shift the blame onto his wife. He related how his wife had tried to poison Latouche and when this plot had failed, she had struck Latouche with a hoe the following day.

"How did you plan to kill your son-in-law

"My wife said to me, 'Let's go to the farm.' Once we were there, she implored me many times until we killed my son-in-law. Our daughter never spoke to me about her problems, but spoke to her mother about getting rid of her husband. Sometimes I was even forced to leave the house because my wife was so relentless about getting rid of our son-in-law. I delayed hoping she would change her mind."

"How many times did you strike him?"

"I don't remember the number, but I believe it was less than ten when he died."

As Bertault was being interrogated he said that he knew that his daughter had watched her husband being murdered, but that he didn't know if she had struck him. To protect himself further, he added, "I never meant my son-in-law any harm. What I have done was but in obedience to my wife."

Gillette Baune was interrogated next. She admitted to having tried to poison Lastouche and gave explicit details of the murder.

"What kind of plant did you use to try to poison your son-in-law, Julien Latouche?"

" I dont know what kind of plant it is, but it isn't any bigger than half the length of a finger. I only used four or five leaves which didn't do him any harm."

"Did you go into the barn to see your son-in-law one hour after sunset, where you said to him, 'Now there's a nice son-in-law.'?

"Yes, and he answered me, 'Why aren't I very nice?'

"Did you not take a hoe that was next to a barrel and use it to strike your son-in-law?"

"That is true."

"Did your husband come in at the same time to take the hoe to finish killing your son-in-law?"

"That is true."

"Did you call your daughter to help you kill Latouche?"

"Yes, but I don't know if my daughter struck him."

"How many times did you strike the deceased?"

"I gave the first blow, but it did not draw blood. Then I hit him again on the head and he fell to the ground. My husband came in at the same time. I dont know how many times he struck him but after many blows, he died."

"After you killed your son-in-law, what did you do?"

"When we knew he was dead, the three of us threw him into the river."

At the end of her interroagtion, Gillatte Baune admitted that they had maliciously killed Julien Latouche. She said that they had thought about it for a long time, because they never had any peace of mind since the marriage of Latouche to their daughter and because he was worthless.

On the 8th of June, the fiscal procuror rendered his verdict. He asked that the trhee prisoners be executed and that no allowance be made for Isabelle because of her age, as she also had been involved in the murder. Sitting on Monsieur Chartier's court were Juchereau de la Ferte, Ruette Dauteuil, de
Barmen, Duquet, Morin de Rochebelle, and Simon Denis. They showed no pity for Jacques Bertault and Gillette Baune, but in spite of the petition of the fiscal procuror, they were merciful to Isabelle because of her age. The official verdict reads:

"...we have declared that said Jacques Bertault, Gillette Baune, his wife, and Isabelle Bertault, their daughter, tried and convicted of the said crimes of imprisonement and murder committed against the person of the said Julien de la Tousche. For reperation of which, we condemned and are condemning the said Bertault, Baune, his wife, and their daughter, to be taken from and removed from the prisons of this jurisdiction by the executor of high justice, led with a rope around their necks, an ardent torch in their hands, before the door of the parish church in this city.

There, the said Bertault, bare headed and in his shirt, and the said women, dressed in their shirts to the waist, will kneel and ask forgiveness of God, the king, and justice, for the said crimes by them committed. Thereafter they will be led by the said executioner to the scaffold that will be erected
for this purpose in the public square of the "haute ville". There, will be a cross of St. André on which Jacques Bertault will be lain to receive a swift blow on the right arm, then strangled. After his death, another blow will be struck on his left arm and a blow on each of his thighs. The said Gillette Baune will be hanged and strangled on a scaffold which will be erected for this purpose at the said place and the said Isabelle Bertault will witness the said executions with a rope tied around her neck as previously stated. After the executions, the body of the said Jacques Bertault will be placed on a wheel at
Cap aux Diamants, the usual site, to remain and serve as an example. We further condemn the said Bertault, his wife and his daughter, to one hundred "livres' fine payable to the Seigneurs of this region and to court costs. The remainder of their property will remain secured and confiscated and distributed to whomever it should belong."

Bertault and his wife appealed their sentences to the Soverign Council. On June 9, the Council, presided over by Governor de Courcelles and assisted by de Tilly, Damours, de laTesserie, Dupont, Bonamour, Roussel and the fiscal procuror, rendered their verdict. They upheld the verdict of the lower court and only modified the judgement as to the fine. Bertault and his wife were fined 60 'livres' to be divided thus: one half to the Recollets Fathers to pray God for the repose of the soul of Julien Latouche and to court costs; the other half and the surplus of their estate to Nicolas and Jeanne bertault, the minor children of Jacques Bertault and Gillette Baune.

The cost of the trial came up to about 139 "livres". This included the salaries of the judges, the fiscal procuror, the scribe, the bailiffs, and the executioner. Included in this sum was 15 "livres" for the nourishement of the three prisoners for over a month.

The sentence was rendere in the morning and immediately delivered to the prisoners. Only one appeal was granted to prisoners and judgement was rendered swiftly. On the same day, June 9, 1672, at four o'clock in the afternoon, Jacques Bertault and Gillette Baune were executed.

Jacques Bertault had been condemned to the punishment of the wheel. This punishment is of German origin and dates back in France to 1534, when it was introduced by an edict of Francois I. It was reserved for particulary serious crimes such as murders, poisonnings, nighttime thefts in homes when violence
occured, and highway robbery.

For this procedure, a scaffold was erected, usually in the town square. A cross of St. André was built on the center of the scaffold, laying flat. It was constructed of wood with two joists secured in the center where they join, forming anoblique cross. Grooves had been carved into the wood to admit the thighs, the legs, and the upper and lower arms of the convicted.

The criminal was usually clad in a long shirt which the executioner raised at the sleeves and at the hem up to the thighs, to secure the prisoner at each joint onto the cross. His head was lain on a stone and turned toward the heavens.

The first phase of the punishment was a beating to break the extremities. The executioner armed himself with a metal pipe, one and a half inch in diameter, with a ball on one end which served as a handle. With this weapon, he would strike an arm and a leg two times each. Then striding the body, he would break the two remaining extremities with two blows each. Lastly, he would give three more blows on the chest. The condemned was thus struck a total of eleven times with the bar. It was impossible to break the spinal column, as it was protected by the back of the cross.

The punishment of the wheel was never applied to
