About Gillette Bertault (Baune)

Both Jacques and Gillette were executed for the murder of their daughter's husband ( Julien Latouche). Executed by being hanged, strangled on the cross of St Andrew and broken on the wheel with a metal bar. He and his wife, Gillette Bonne killed their daughter, Isabelle's husband, Jean DeLaTouche who was drunk and beat their daughter.

Gillette and Marin had Marie who was baptized Sept 8, 1650 at Trois Rivieres. She was their only child for Marin Chauvin died at Trois Rivieres some time befeore June 7, 1651, when Monsieur d' Ailleboust granted Gillette 1/3 of an arpent in the town site of Trois Rivieres, but Sebastien on the southwest on and palisade on the southwest on that condition that bulid a house and have it reclosed with a good fence.

In 1653 Gillette married Jacques Berault in Trois Rivieres.

In 1671 their daughter Élisabeth married Julien Latouche while Élisabeth was mere 12 and Julien 30. Julien was unsuccessful farmer in Trois Riviere and Jacques and Gillette often had to send food to the couple or have Élisabeth come eat and drink with them. What is more, Latouche allegedly beat Élisabeth; the beatings and the failure took place at the farm, were both, apparently, the result of heavy drinking on the part of Latouche. So with apparent knowledge and complicity of their daughter, Jacques and Gillette poisoned their son in law.

Both Gillette and Jacques were sentenced to death by the criminal court of Quebec for the murder of their son in law. They both appealed to the conseil Souvrain. Élisabeth was also found guility of that crime, but did not appeal. The council rejected the appeal and sentenced Gillette and Jacques to be hanged. Before the hanging they were to have a rope around their necks and be lead nu en chemise with a torch in their hands to the doors of the church where they were to kneel and beg for forgiveness for their crimes to God and the King. They were to be hanged on scaffolds set up grande place in the haute ville. In addition, Jacques was to have his arms and legs broke with a rod which Gillette and Élisabeth were both forced to watch before the execution of Gillette.

Gillette had a tragic life. She was recruited to Quebec in or before 1649 ar about the age of 13 years old. About 1649 she married Marin Chauvin of Trois-Riviers who had been recruited in 1648 by Noel Juchereau for 3 yrs at 40 livres per year. They had a daughter before he died in 1651. She had 6 children by Jacques Bertault. They allowed their daughter to marry Julien Latouche in Aug 1671 when Elisabeth was only 12 year old. he apparently was a brutal alcoholic who beat her and failed at farming so they hadn't enough to eat also. Jacques and Gillette often had to send them food or have Elisabeth eat with them. Apparently with Elisabeth's knowledge, they poisoned him and were all three found guilty of murder. The parents were condemned to hang. After being forced to carry torched to the door of the church and beg for forgiveness, Elisabeth was made to watch her father's arms and legs be broken and both parents hang. Her younger siblings were Jeanne, 12 yrs, and Nicolas, 10 yrs,. Their property was confiscated and a fine was paid for 60 livres with the surplus, after court costs, being given for the support of the minor children.
