SEE ENTRY IN ANCESTRY OF EUPHROSINE HAMELIN LEADING TO WM. She and Jean are parents of Francois Guyon de Buisson dit Despres.

Mathurine Robin (1597-1663) Mathurine Robin was born about 1597 in St. Jean, Mortagne, Perche, France; the daughter of Thomas Robin and Madeliene Avard. She arrived in the small French colony as a Les Meres D'Immigre and was one of the first settlers of Quebec. On June 12, 1615; she married Jean-Francois Guyon at St. Aubin De Tour, Montagne, Perche, France. Jean-Francois was born on September 18, 1592 at St. Aubin-de-Tourouve; the son of Jacques Guyon and Marie Huet. He grew up in Tourouvre and on May 18, 1614; there is a record of the repayment of a loan to him by Pantaleon Bigot, a farmer from Autheuil; the payment of which included "a small gold pistol, several gold crowns and silver pieces." Evidence that he was doing quite well.

The same year that he and Mathurine were married, he constructed a thirty-step, stone staircase leading to the bell tower of the church at St. Aubin, where he had been christened. Remarkably, that staircase is still intact.

Mathurine would start off her married life with the addition of her mother-in-law, who came to live with them after the death of Jean's father. The family moved to the parish of St. Jean, where they would remain until Jean's mother passed away in 1626; and from there to Notre-Dame in Mortagne.

There was a lot of restoration work required in Mortagne, after the devastation of the Religious Wars, and her husband's skills as a stone-cutter, brought him to the attention of Robert Giffard when he was establishing his seigneury at Beauport Quebec. The family left Dieppe in May of 1634, on a ship commanded by Captain De Ville, and arrived in Quebec on August 8, 1634.

However, there were a few problems from the beginning. Mathurine's husband had teamed with Zacherie Cloutier; the two of them planning to pool their resources; but when the joint contract was drawn up, the clerk, instead of writing in 1000 arpents of land each for a total of two thousand; mistakenly wrote down 2000 arpents each! When the error was caught, the men tried to have Giffard honour the document as written and the legal case went on for some time. Finally, the new governor, Montmagny had to intervene, and settled in favour of Giffard.

The first task for Jean was to help in the construction of a manor house for Seignuer Giffard, which was a two story masonry dwelling, 32 feet long by 16 feet wide with 6 foot clearance under the beams; overlooking the St. Lawrence. It became known as "Le Manior de Beauport" and survived until 1879 when it was destroyed by fire and was demoloshed in 1880. During the war with the English it served as Montcalm's headquarters.

In addition to the construction of the home of Robert Giffard, his contract called for a three year obligation to supervise the tilling of fields and to provide fire wood for Giffard and his family. Zacharie and Jean were slow in complying, resulting in legal actions, and they always found it difficult to accept their former friend Giffard as their 'Lord and Master'.

Jean Guyon was a well educated man and wanted the same opportunity for his children. The boys were sent to the Jesuit College and the girls instructed by the Ursuline nuns, who later wrote; "There is no other family whose zeal for education has been more transmitted from generation to generation during the past hundred years than that of Jean Guyon".

Mathurine and Jean had a total of fifteen children; six they brought with them, and had five additonal born in Quebec. Their fief in Beauport located near the Riviere de Buisson, adopted that name and Jean and Mathurine assumed the titles Sieur and Madame Du Buisson. This title would later fall to their son Jean. Mathurine died April 16, 1662 and Jean the following year on May 30, 1663. The Next Generation Marie-Andree Robin Guyon - Was born about 1616 and died unknown in St. Jean.
