About Madeleine Allen

De son vrai nom: Sarah Allen. Née en 1684 ou 1692, originaire de Deerfield, comté de Franklin au Massachusetts de l'union d'Edward Allen (1663-1740) et de Mercy Painter (1664-?). Ses parents s'étaient mariés à Deerfield. Le 11 août 1704, elle est faite prisonnière par les Indiens lors de l'attaque du village. Amenée à Kahnawake, Sarah Allen y séjourne quelque temps avant d'être rachetée par Jean Quenet, marchand de Montréal. Le 30 mai 1705, elle est baptisée sous le nom de Marie-Madeleine-Hélène Sire à Ste-Anne-du-Bout-de-l'Île(Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue) en présence de son parrain, Pierre Lamoureux, et de sa marraine Etiennette Hurtubise, épouse de Jean Quenet. Le 27 avril 1710, Sarah Allen épouse à Ste-Anne-du-Bout-de l'Île, Guillaume Lalonde dit Lespérance, agriculteur né en 1684, fils de Jean Lalonde et de Marie Barbant. En mai 1710, elle obtient sa nationalité française. Le couple Lalonde aura trois enfants entre 1712 et 1734 qui seront baptisés à Ste-Anne-du-Bout-de-l'Île et à l'Île-Perrot. Guillaume Lalonde décède à Saint-Joseph-de-Soulanges le 21 août 1752. Sarah décède dans la même paroisse le 25 décembre 1764.

Another interesting person in our French Canadian line is SARAH ALLEN. SARAH was a 12-year-girl living in the Puritan village of Deerfield Massachusetts, when it was raided by a group of French and Native forces just before dawn on February 29, 1704. In the attack, 44 villagers were killed and 109 were captured.

The captives were marched 300 miles north to Canada, during the middle of winter, arriving in Quebec by early April 1704. Only 89 captives survived the journey. Many of the captives were ransomed and returned to Deerfield, Sarah however, did not. She was baptized Catholic and her name changed to MARIE-MADELINE HELENE SIRE on May 30, 1705 at Ste-Anne de Bout de L'Ile near Montreal. At that time, she was living with, and working as a maid for Jean Quenet. 5 years later she married GUILLAUME LALONDE, the son of JEAN LALONDE, another Carignan soldier. GUILLAUME and SARAH went on to have 12 children.
