About Marie Chauvet dite Quinquenel

Pierre was from St. Pierre de Villefagnan, Angoulême, Angoumis, France; born there around 1637 to Jacques & Isabelle BEGUIN; nothing else known about his parents. Pierre's surname has been recorded as Faye, Failly, Fagnan, and Villefagnan in various records. He arrived in Canada on 18 June 1665 as a soldier with the Carignan Regiment.6Marie was a fille du roi from Ste. Marguerite, Tonny-Charente, Rochefort, Saintes, Saintonge, France. She was born there about 1641, a daughter of sailor Jacques & Michelle MICHELETTE; Jacques Chauvet died about 1668, which was when Marie came to Canada. She brought with her a dowry of goods worth about 300 livres.6There is no mention of her receiving the King's Gift of 50 livres after her marriage to Pierre on 16 August 1668. Their marriage contract was drawn up on 10 August 1668; neither party was able to sign it.6Marie seemed to be unable to settle into married life in the beginning. She carried on affairs with both Pierre Vivien and Étienne Le Roy. After discovering that her husband was aware of her dalliances, she appeared before the Conseil Souverain on 2 January 1669 and accused Vivien and Le Roy of rape in an attempt to save her reputation. It was an attempt that the Conseil saw through; and they charged all 3 parties with adultery.6Marie's sentence was the shaving of her head and being beaten with sticks in the public square, along with a prison sentence; the latter of which was postponed because Marie was pregnant. After giving birth to a son in April of 1669 (he was buried 4 days later), she fulfilled her debt to Canadian society on 8 July of that year. Marie's lovers were sentenced to 8 days in prison--shackled in irons and on bread and water rations. They also had to pay 28 livres each--15 to Pierre Faye, 10 to the hospital in Quebec, and 3 for court costs.6Pierre and Marie moved to Charlesbourg after this incident. They had 9 children altogether; their 5th child was Marie Anne. All but the aforementioned first child lived to adulthood.6Pierre Faye died on 27 December 1692 at the Hôtel Dieu du Quebec. Marie Chauvet died at Quebec City sometime after 10 April 1709.6
