About Jean Gélinas-Bellemare

Jean Gélineau devenu Gellyna, Gélina puis Gélinas, ancêtre des Bellamare (prononcé Bellemore) et des Lacourse


The general census of New-France for 1666 denotes Etienne and Jean Gellineau as living in Trois-Rivieres. The census for 1681 denotes Jean Gellineau and family living at Cap-de-la-Madeleine, owning a gun, six head of cattle and working four arpents of land. Ending a contract for farming employment with Nicolas Gastineau-Duplessis, a pioneer of the Trois-Rivieres region, in 1677, Etienne and Jean went their separate ways, with Jean and his family settling a piece of land near Lake Saint-Paul, on the south bank of the Saint-Lawrence across from Cap-de-la-Madeleine; Etienne agreed to serve seigneur Charles LeGardeur de Villiers at l'Arbre-de-la-Croix in exchange for food and lodging, until meeting the widow of Sebastien Langlier five years later (source: "Your Ancient Canadian Family Ties", FCGSC Library).
