John, I am sorry. I should get to the Genforum' forum more consistently.
athe Tesson history is one of my outstanding research issue as Laurent Tesson my ancester might very well be related to Honore Tesson the immigrate.
Your message is addressing a document in old French that you have hard time to read and/or understand. If you wish, I could help you providing you have a scan version that could be e-mail to me.
However, I know now the date of Honore immigration from the harbour of La Rochelle. Also we should know that sevearl of my ancester sin the village of "Beaulieu-sous-La Roche" were millers (or "meunier" or "farinier" in French, or "fariners"). I am not surprise to read that he was enrolled as a fariner, and that his father as well as his son were also "meuniers".
Honore, as most of the immigrants of that period, leaving France to the "new continent", was enrolled for 100 pounds per year of wadges, plus a shot of alcool every morning (during the journey).
Form the family tree, I found that the surname Gaultier is also related to us. The village of "Le Poire-sur-Vie" is only 15 miles away from "Beaulieu-sous-La Roche".
You mentioned that Honore had to certify he was not maried at the time of his mariage in Quebec. the between-quote senetnce means: "The said Honore Tesson having certified he is not maried in France".
Concerning their mentor Jacques-Alexis de Fleury d'Archambault, I think he was from "Saint-George de Montaigu" a bit north (about 20 miles) of Beaulieu and Le Poire. It looks that Jacques-Alexis was recruiting in his district any guy of some skill to populate Quebec. Do you know a bit more about him ? Do you konw the name of the ship he was owning ?
