About Joseph-Ozanie Nadaud / Nadeau dit Lavigne

Joseph-Ozanie Nadaud dit-LaVigne (also Osanny)

First Nadeau to arrive in New France (Québec) (from France).

b Genouillac Confolens, Angoulême France (somewhat competing locations),_Creuse (old capital of Angoumois )
  • 1660 - Most likely arrived in the summer of 1660 engaged in service to the French government for 36 months of service.
  • 1662 - He was Confirmed in the Catholic Church at Château-Richer (pre-New France) on April 11, 1662. person #3 of 47 Joseph Osany Nado, d'Angoulesme ( Angoulême, a commune in southwestern France. It is the capital of the Charente department, in Poitou-Charentes. Based on a plateau overlooking a meander of the Charente River, the city is nicknamed the "balcony of the southwest" )

  • 1663 - On February 3, 1663 he received from Charles de Lauzon 3 arpents of land facing St-Famille Parish on the Île d'Orleans, in the Charny-Lirec sub-fief.
  • 1666 - It is noted in the 1666 Census that he owned 7 arpents of land, and was 29 years old.

The surname "Nadeau" comes from the name Nadel or Natal, which takes its roots in the Latin adjective "nataslis," meaning "Nativity" - or Christmas.

dit LaVigne In the earliest documents of Trois-Rivieres, dating back to 1651, Nicolas Rivard was referred to with the title "Sieur de la Vigne". Nicolas, oldest son of Pierre Rivard, was the first of the family to arrive in New France in 1648. Nicolas' mother, Jeanne Mullard, owned a small piece of land in Tourouvre, named "Clos de La Vigne". This LaVigne location exits in Tourouvre to this day, where one of our cousins visited and kindly provided us with a picture of a local road sign. Nicolas' oldest son Nicolas and youngest son Antoine also used the dit name LaVigne, but the dit name was not routinely used after the first three generations. While most families in this line retained Rivard, we have recently discoverd numerous families in Quebec that dropped Rivard and kept Lavigne as the surname. Many of the Lavigne families were from the Nicolet area.

Quick background of Quebec (from Wikipedia)

 1608 founded by Samuel de Champlain
 1627 after meeting with Samuel de Champlain, Cardinal Richelieu granted a charter to the Company of One Hundred Associates (or Company of One Hundred Associates). This gave the company control over the booming fur trade and land rights across the territory in exchange for the company supporting and expanding settlement in New France
 19 July 1629, with Quebec completely out of supplies and no hope of relief, Champlain surrendered Quebec to the Kirkes without a fight.
 1632 Treaty of Saint-Germain-en-Laye that Quebec and all other captured French possessions in North America were returned to New France. Champlain was restored as de facto governor but died three years later.
 1640 only 300 settlers
 1641 On the verge of bankruptcy, the company lost its fur trade monopoly
 1662 finally dissolved
 1663 The establishment of the Conseil souverain, political restructuring which turned New France into a province of France, ended the period of company rule and marked a new beginning in the colonization effort.
