About Pierre Tremblay


Demographics On August 6, 1647, in the port of Quebec, three ships from the Motherland, just wet: the Saint-Francois-de-Dieppe, and La Marguerite La Marquise, having sailed in early June in La Rochelle. Pierre de Repentigny Legardeur armed them in conjunction with the Christmas Juchereau Châtelets. It is actively recruiting colonists in the provinces of Perche and Normandy, for the manors of Sieur Giffard and the company of Inhabitants. Among the newcomers, a young man of twenty-one years and hisguardianPierre Tremblay and Martin Huan.

His father disappeared and Guillaume was large enough to support the farm. Pierre was carried away by his love of adventure and decided to go to the new countries o <u it may be easier to improve his lot. He Is a minor (the age of majority is twenty-five years at the time), her mother agrees to her departure provided it is accompanied by an older man who will serve during the crossing guard and early days of New France. That's why we find Margin Huan and Pierre Tremblay signing a contract of April 9 1647 to Christmas Juchereau before Master Choiseau, notary Tourouvre. The contract has a term of three years and states the annual salary of ninety pounds for Martin Huan, locksmith, and seventy-five pounds for Pierre Tremblay.

Pierre enters the service of Christmas Juchereau.

The commitment form the bulk of emigration, and we know called and those who can not afford to pay their passage to remain committed to the colonies for several years in the service of a colon, a merchant who advance travel expenses

(Debien, G: Committed to Canada in the seventeenth century saw La Rochelle, page 178)

The work to be done: to fell timber, tasks in port or on the farm, etc.. Pierre was able to perform these different tasks or be employed in the Company store people, specializing in the fur trade. Undeniable fact, during the settlement of the estate Juchereau Christmas, his executor includes the number of debts, a sum of seventy-five pounds payable to Pierre Tremblay for the second year of its services.

While many involved do not hesitate to return to their native village at the end of their contract, Pierre Tremblay took the decision to settle in New France. Among those who drop in this year 1652: Jean Trehard. Randonnai compatriot, he was certainly the easier life than Pierre. Unable to support himself, forty pounds to borrow Pierre Jean Trehard.

The time of departure approaches. Jean Trehard in the presence of Peter, is an obligation to award the sum of forty pounds, and a letter from attorney stating, that on his return, Jeanne Cognet, mother of Peter, will reimburse the full amount of the loan.

1657. In New France for ten years already, Pierre thinks of marrying. Each year comes from France, a lot of girls,precursors' of 'the king's daughters. Ozanne Auchon is one of the eighteen that newcomers are as follows: thirteen of La Rochelle, four in Paris and Touraine. Likely transient vessel Virgin, with the boatswain F. Marot, she is a native of Puyravault, a small village a few miles northeast of Surgères alder. Daughter of John and Helen Regnaud, it houses on its arrival at Madame D'Ailleboust, responsible for the well-being of marriageable girls'in this country. She received the advances of a man of thirty-one years, Pierre Tremblay, working for wages in various inhabitants of the coast of Beaupré. Uncovering many affinities with each other, they pass a marriage contract in lieu of formal engagement, September 19, 1657, to Claude Auber, notary and several friends. The church is the publication of three bans the 21.23 and 30 September. Father Gabriel de Quylus celebrates the union Tuesday, October 2.

Pierre and Ozanne probably lived on the Beaupré coast, but do not yet own home. During this period of establishment, was born the eldest of the thirteen children that constitute the family of Peter. He gives the name of Mary Magdalene. She was baptized July 9, 1658, the day of his birth.

At the beginning of 1659, Jean de Lauson undertakes the land grant in its stronghold of Lothainville, located in L'Ange-Gardien. He attributed one of the first batch Pierre Tremblay, April 4, 1659. Its neighbor on one side, the land of the lords of Beaupré and on the other, Adrien and Rodolphe Hayot. Its field extends across the width of two acres and the depth of a league and a half. Pierre Tremblay must comply with the standard terms of a concession: pay the seigneurial rent of one pound per acre of forehead and two capons to the day of the feast of St-Remi, keep hearth and home, to grind his grain mill when it is built, closed its land, agree to the construction of public roads. And so on.

The times are not easy. Pierre was obliged to borrow money. There is a particular method of settling the situation, the November 6, 1661, he became the farmer Michel Fillion. The nature of this agreement is said March 12, 1662. He acknowledges having to Michel Fillion, the sum of seven hundred twenty-one pounds ten floors and another, smaller, sixty-five pounds fifteen floors to repay immediately. In addition, he wintered a calf and a heifer for the salary of twenty pounds. As for Michel Fillion, he promised to buy Pierre, sixty cords of wood at twenty-five or forty each soil to deliver this winter and the other twenty in that of 1663.

A long friendship and an old debt to regulate in the year 1669: Martin Huan made the donation in person at Pierre Tremblay. Too old and too weak (sixty) only to meet his needs, he moved to Pierre where he knows he will receive excellent care ainsya good and true to peult amy has another . In return for all his goods, furniture, pensions, inheritance and other income and the work he is fit for the firm, Martin was offered room and all the necessities of daily life requires.

In 1678, Pierre and Michel, the elderly, reaching respectively eighteen and sixteen, Pierre thinks of their establishment. All lands of the coast of Beaupré were granted, it aya a long time, and few are offered for sale. Monseigneur de Laval, back from France, is considering developing the Baie St-Paul in a farm and non-industrial heard as Jean Talon, Intendant of New France. The latter, in the absence of the bishop, had improperly awarded land for the exploitation of tar, encroaching on the area of ​​Beaupré. Even before this unfortunate incident is resolved, François de Laval in 1676 commits Claude Bouchard and Simard said Lombrette Christmas in 1677.

Comes the turn of Pierre Tremblay in 1678. He does not hesitate to leave its share of the Guardian Angel in the hands of Martin Huan and younger boys. Before Romain Becquet, royal notary, and Louis Ango Maizerets of Messire François de Laval, first bishop of New France, Pierre Tremblay hire on 1 December 1678 for a period of five years, effective on the date of Easter in the year that is, next April 2nd, 1679. It should clear and cultivate ten to twelve acres of former estate and called Pitoin Dupré, build a house, a barn and a stable, give up half of all crops, forestry practice which he will sell the products at the Seminar, etc. . Many clauses concern the cattle that the seminar gave the land, six oxen, eight cows, two sows, one pig and six nourritoreaux.

The visit of Louis Ango Maizerets in August 1679, shows the strength of Peter. It was noted the presence of children of the farmer, probably Peter, the eldest and Michel.

The 5 Augusst 1679, I went to the Maizerets Easting

the Bay St. Paul convict trembled with articles

which contain all the following work faicts

both by him and by his children till the aforesaid.

A pr have learned to wit the wood of the

barn, made roads, sand and stone

pr the sand masons, sawn board, cleared

land and other work, six hundred pounds for

provided that any neantmoins complete cleaning

stumps and place where he had made

his garden till the standing timber.

(Text quoted by Father Honorius Provost's Pioneers in the Bay St. Paul, page 509)

The census-General of the Lordship of Beaupré in 1680 imparts to us another less detailed description.

Demeter said another item instead of the Bay St. Paul

Which is a farmer Pierre Tremblay,

... Containing approximately acres, which Demeter

Is similarly to house, barn, established,

Short, cardin, cropland, Piar and standing timber.

(Text quoted by Paul in Médéric gentlemen of the Seminary, page 162-163)

Pierre Tremblay does not renew its lease in 1684. He comes to live with Michel on the land granted to the latter October 12, 1685 at the Petite-Rivière-Saint-François. Similarly, Peter son becomes the next census, October 13.

The ancestor of American families Tremblay died probably in 1689. Ozanne Achon widow expresses for the first time, the marriage of his daughter Louise Gagné Ignace November 6, 1689. If we rely on official documents, Pierre died between April 14, 1687 (marriage to Marguerite Tremblay and John Savard) and November 6, 1689. Yet the act of burial is revealed as found at the Bay St. Paul's L'Ange-Gardien, or in any other register of New France. The most plausible explanation that would give, who died in the winter of 1688 or 1689, or in spring or fall when communications are difficult, Pierre, a resident of Little River, was buried by a missionary priest , returned to his parish, wrote from memory the various acts. She had to default in the case of Peter.

Ozanne Achon, seriously ill, is on the list of entries at the Hotel-Dieu June 20 of that year. She died at the Guardian Angel and will be buried on Christmas Eve 1707, aged seventy-five years.

The ancestral couple Tremblay gave life to thirteen children of whom eleven reached maturity and married.

Original feature, Peter, son, becomes, by his second marriage to Marie Roussin, both the brother and the son of Nicolas Roussin. Indeed, he had married in 1671, the death of his first wife, mother of Marie Roussin, Mary Magdalene, eldest daughter of Pierre Tremblay and Ozanne Auchon. Companion of his father in Baie St-Paul, Peter, son, settled in the area and buy the Lordship of Landslides in 1710.

Louis Michel, and follow his trail. Also decide to contribute to the development started by their father. Their descendants will pave the way to Ile-aux-Coudres and Lake St. John.

The youngest son, John, drowning in 1684 at the age of nine years, the land of the paternal Guardian Angel returns to Jacques, by gift from his mother March 9, 1696.


NOTE: For historical accuracy, "Montmorency" was removed from the County field in locations because Montmorency did not exist until the 14th legislature (1830-1834). There were no counties in effect in the 1600s. The places and cities remain the same.
