Early French Families of Detroit (Le De'troit) Selected Biographies

SOURCE: http://www.geocities.com/histmich/frenchfamilys.html as retrieved on Sep 25, 2005

  • For full source view the book entitled Legends of Le Detroit published in 1889 pg 268-317.

History states that when La Mothe Cadillac landed at Detroit, he was greet by two Coureurs des Bois, Pierre Roy and Francois Pelletier. The latter, the Pelletier surname, can be found in every department of science and politics in Canada.

Nicolas, the first of this name, came from Beance, France, and married in 1675 to Jeanne Roussy. They settled in Sorrel, and had 8 children: Francois, who married Marguerite Madeleine Morrisseau, and had 10 children. One of them, Marie Angelique, married in 1709 to Antoine de Gerlais. Another, Francois, married in 1689 to Madeleine Thumes Defresne, the daughter of a surgeon, whose son, Francois Jean, was born in 1681 at Sorrel. Francois Jean married in 1718 to Marie Robert, in Detroit. She later married to Louis Campeau. Jean, the second child of Jeanne (Roussy) and Nicolas Pelletier, was Jean, who married in 1662 to Marie Genevieve Manevely de Rainville. She was the daughter of Charles and Francoise de Blanet, de Perche. They had a son, Jean Francois, who married in 1685 to Genevieve Le Tendre, and she later married to Etienne Volant de St. Claude. Pelletier's son with Genevieve was named, Jean Francois, and he married in Quebec to Catherine Arnaud.

ANOTHER POTENTIAL ANCESTRE (French)

Guillaume Pelletier Ancêtre des Pelletier d'Amérique (translates to Guillaume Pelletier, Ancester of the Pelletiers of America)

Plusieurs Pelletier vinrent s'établir en Nouvelle-France, dont Guillaume (Perche), Pierre (Poitou), Louis (Poitou) et Nicolas (Beauce). Parmi eux, Guillaume est à l'origine de la plus nombreuse descendance de Pelletier en Amérique.

C'est à Brésolettes qu'est né Guillaume Pelletier, en 1598. Il était fils d'Éloy Pelletier et de Françoise Matte. C'est dans l'église de Saint-Aubin de Tourouvre que le mariage fut célébré entre Guillaume Pelletier et Michelle Mabille, le 12 février 1619.

C'est Jean, venu avec ses parents de France en 1641, qui perpétuera le nom Pelletier au Canada. Quoique de naissance française, Jean Pelletier mérite d'être considéré comme le premier ancêtre "canadien" de cette branche des Pelletier qui s'est abondamment ramifiée au Canada, particulièrement dans la région de Québec, et plus encore dans celle du "bas du fleuve".

ANOTHER BIOGRAPHY

From this site: http://home.centurytel.net/gmgordon/peltr.html

Nicolas was born about 1590 at St. Pierre, Galardon, Chartres, France. He married Jeanne De Vouzy/De Voisy/Roussi about 1632 at St. Pierre, Galardon, Chartres, France.

Bio of Nicolas: Nicolas Pelletier, the first Pelletier known to emigrate from France to New France, is born about 1590. In 1632, Nicolas marries Jeanne de Voissy/de Vouzy/de Roussy, age 18, at Saint Pierre Church in Gallardon (Galardon). Gallardon is located in the Beauce region of France, southwest of Paris between Chartres and the forest of Orleans. Two of Nicolas' children, Jean (1633) and Francois (1635) are born in Gallardon. Nicolas and his family leave France in the Spring of 1636 and arrive in New France, at Quebec City, on June 11 of the same year. Arriving on the same ship is Charles Huault-de-Montmagny, the new governor general of New France, succeeding Champlain. Nicolas is a carpenter-woodworker, and among the Quebec City buildings he is known to have worked on are Louis Hebert's house, the first private home to be built outside the Quebec fortification, the frame of Notre Dame Church's steeple, and the roof of the Chateau Saint Louis. Six other children are born in New France, five girls, Marie (1637), Louise (1640), Francoise (1642), Jeanne (1644), Genevieve (1646), and another son, Nicolas (1649). In 1649, Nicolas is granted land outside Quebec city, to the southwest, adjacent to St. Francois Xavier Fort, near Cap Rouge, along the St. Lawrence River. In 1650, his family is attacked by two Iroquois Indians, but Nicolas successfully defends his family and the homestead against the intruders. In 1669, Nicolas rents out a large portion of his property to his son Jean for five years, and in 1670, he joins his son Francois, who now is known as Pelletier dit Ontaya (or Anthaia, later Antaya), and his family in Saurel (Sorel). In 1677, at the latest, Nicolas and his son acquire property across the St. Lawrence River at Dautray (Seignneurie d'Autray), near what is now Berthierville. It is here that Nicolas apparently dies in 1679, the exact date is unknown. His wife, Jeanne, dies at Sorel on December 12, 1669.

Left France spring 1636 and arrive Quebec City 11th June 1636.
