I have been asked for the ancestors of Madeleine Favreau who married Zacharie Tessier dit Lavigne's grandson Paul on 19 April 1728 at Boucherville. All information is from Rene Jette's "Dictionnaire genealogique des familles du Quebec, orignes a 1730".
JEAN FAVREAU's ASCENDANCY:
Jean Favreau & Jeanne Meunier m. 23 Jan 1702 at Boucherville, prov. of Quebec
Pierre Favreau & Marie Benoit m. about 1668 at Contrecoeur, PQ
Origins of Pierre Favreau and Marie Benoit unknown but likely they both were born in France, especially Pierre who was a soldier in the famous Carignan Regiment.
JEANNE MEUNIER's ASCENDANCY:
Pierre Meunier dit Lapierre & Barbe Richaume m. 12 Oct 1675 near Montreal (marriage record never found but contract of marriage was made on date given before the notary Basset who operated in the Montreal Area)
Bertrand Meunier & Guibor m. probaly before 1641 a and probably at City of rennes, Britainy, France. Neither came to North America.
BARBE RICHAUME's DESCENDANCY
Pierre Richaume dit Petrus & Marthe Arnu m.16 Aug 1658 at Montreal.
Simon Richaume & Catherine Belier probably m. before 1634 proably at Hiers-Brouage near Rochefort, diocese of Saintes. Neither came to France
MARTHE ARNU's DESCENDANCY
Marc Arnu & Louise Brodeur m. about 1630 at La Rochelle, France. Parents of both are not known. Marc never came to North America. Louise came probably as a widow and married here.
Sorry folks this is more work than I had envisioned so I have to cut back on interpreting Jette for this Forum.
