Pierre Bourgouin (or Bourgoin) dit Bourguignon was born 1639 - 1641 in Fontenay-le-Comte (Fontenay the Count) of the Diocese of La Rochelle in Western France and was baptised in the parish of Notre Dame. Pierre arrived in Quebec City of New France. The first record of Pierre in Quebec City is reported as July 27, 1662 by genealogist and historian Marcel Fournier and 1665 by Archange Godbout in "Our Ancestors in XVII Century". During a census in 1666 Pierre is found to reside in Beauport, Quebec, at the residence of Jean Gibaud, reported as 25 years old and engaged in domestic work.

Beauport now part of Quebec City is located a few kilometers north of the centre of Quebec City. Catherine Basset arrives in Quebec City in 1667 and is a "la fille du roi" or "daughter of the king". On October 15, 1667, Catherine Basset who is Calvinist converts to Catholic and Pierre marries Catherine in Beauport, Quebec on October 17, 1667. The marriage contract is initialed by the notary, Gilles Rageout, on October 9, 1667.

In 1681 the Bourgouin family is residing in St, Antoine Tilly; however during 1681 Pierre is awarded 4 arpents (acres) of land at Pointe aux Trembles near the north end of the Isle de Montreal, Quebec under the Seigneour de Villiers; also a son Pierre is born here in 1681. In 1687 Pierre acquires land at Ste. Antoine Tilley. A later daughter, Marie, is born in Quebec City in 1683. Ste. Antoine Tilley is south of Quebec City on the south side of the St. Laurence River.
