About Nicholas Quevillon

From "To Avoyelles With the Couvillion's", Couvillion, Ira S., 1966

Page: 29



NICHOLAS QUEVILLON was born close to the coast of the English Channel at Dieppe, France, around 1598, of a family who apparently enjoyed comfortable means. He seems to have been fairly well educated, this being a privilege enjoyed by few during his time. We know but little else about him excepting that he was born at a time when the world was still well excited about this new land that Columbus had discovered and shortly after France had once more taken hold of its political powers after the Hundred Years War.

His marriage to Marie Vanquelin in 1630 resulted in the progeny of the Quevillons in Canada and later the Couvillons in Louisiana as we know them now. It was one of their sons, ADRIEN, who had ventured from the old country to brave the wild and unsettled "la-Nouvelle France" in "le-Amerique."
