About Jean Cusson

  • Sources:
    • Drouin Institute (Archived marriage record - see attached in Media tab)

Marriage 1656 to Marie Foubert (1640-1715) • Jean Cusson and Marie Foubert had 18 children. Six of his sons, Jean, Michel, Charles, Ange, Nicolas and Joseph were all active as fur-traders from 1690 to 1713, having all received permission to travel to the west. The west, in this case, was probably no further than the Great Lakes. To control the fur trading and collect appropriate taxes, the French government issued passports (permits), a form of license. They were difficult to acquire since in many years, only 25 were issued. To conduct fur trading or to travel west without a passport was considered illegal and subject to punishment, most often fines or the confiscation of furs.They travelled with Nicolas Perrot and Bissot de Vincennes, noted fur-traders and interpreters, to distant places like Indiana, passing by Detroit, Lake Erie and Lake Superior. • 1690, Voyageur for Nicolas Perrot to the 8ta8ois (Ottawa Indians). • 1704, July 4, Jean Cusson's engagement to Jean Baptiste Bissot de Vincennes to go to the land of the Outaouais.
