Generation 2 – Joseph Loiselle married Jeanne Langlois, 1682, and settles in Pointe-aux-Trembles, Quebec

Joseph Loiselle was born in 1654, the only surviving son of Louis Loisel and Marguerite Charlot

Joseph Loiselle’s godparents were Paul de Chomedey, Sieur Masionneuve and Jeanne Mance, and was baptised on 25 November 1654 the day of his birth by the Jesuit missionary Claude Pijart.

The baptism was conducted in Latin: “En l’annee du Seigneur 1654, le 25e jour de novembre, moi, Claude Pijart pretre de la Societe de Jesus, agissant au nom de la Paroisse de Montreal, ai baptise en enfant ne ce meme jour, don le pere est Louis Loysel et (la mere) Marguerite Charlot, les epoux, a quii fut impose le nom de Joseph. Le parrain fut Monsieur Paul de Chomedey, gouverneur de ce lieu, la marraine Dame Jeanne Mance.”

In 1666 Census in Montreal, Joseph Loiselle was shown living with his family at age 12,  and just two families away, Jeanne Langlois, age 2, was listed living with her family.  So perhaps there were childhood sweethearts.

Joseph settled in Pointe-aux-Trembles (although still to confirm when).  Here is some history of the early days of Pointe-aux-Trembles.

I do see Jeanne Loisel married to Jean Beauchamp in Pointe-aux-Trembles as early as 1674-1676,  before the birth of their fourth child.  Joseph Loisel would be only 20 at that time and still single, so perhaps he follows his sister Jeanne to PAT.

On 8 Dec 1681, Francois Bau and his wife, sold their property in Pointe-aux-Trembles to Joseph Loisel, bought for 60 arpents. The property included “trois arpent de front sur le bord de la grande riviere (saint-Laurent) sur vingt arpents en profondeur ayant com voisin d’un cote Toussaint Beaudry dit Laubes. The buildings included a house of 20 ft, lambrissee et deux cabanes, une menuiserie, un foury (four) de 12 a 15 pieds, pour cuire le pain, une allonge qui fait une chambre et un grenier a la susdite maison et une grange de 24 a 30 pieds couverte de paille et un etable d’envioron 24 pieds de longueur”.  Toussaint Beaudry [his daughter comes up later in Loiselle family tree] became his neighbor.

And once a landowner after buying property in 1681 from Francois Bau,  this Joseph Loiselle married.  On 7 April 1682 he married Jeanne Langlois and together they  had 13 children. He was the only Loisel to pass on the family name.

It is likely that the girls and granddaughters of Loisel’s started to attending classes in 1680 and the new school house in 1690.   Marguerite Bourgeoys and soeur Marie Barbier and other women, had come to PAT to set up a “mission ambulant” and prepare the children of the community for their communion.   In 1690, Marguerite Bourgeoys build a wood school building. 

As the family settled in PAT, the fears of Indian raids/danger renewed and continued for several years.

Joseph and Jeanne had 13 children over a twenty year time span. Five children died at birth or as infants. There were three surviving sons and four surviving daughters.  Some of the surviving seven children stayed in PAT, but at least three moved away, spreading the family to nearbuy St. Charles-sur-Richelieu and Longueuil and as far flung as Kaskaskia IL.

In 1692, just after his father died, Joseph Loiselle was “Engageur Ouest” to Kaskaskia, IL. His father had been an “engageur ouest” just a few years previously in 1689, but his father died in 1691.  Joseph’s sister Barbe Loisel was married to Francois LeGantier that was also an engageur ouest, but Francois didn’t go out to Detroit area until 1708. 

Anyways it was likely this first interest that results in several of his children ending up in Kaskaskia IL as they grew up and married. 

In 1695 and again in 1722, Joseph Loisel, the son of the pioneer, fut mandate pour gerer les affaires de la paroisse de L’Enfant-Jesus.

  1. Henri Loiselle Says:

    My great grandad came to the prairies and settled in Oak Lake Man. in 1880 with 2 brothers Henri and Louis. (from the Richelieu area. I think Rock was another brother that stayed on the farm in richelieu. (apparently he diied from being attacked by a bull) Henri has a river or creek named after him in the Hudson bay area in Saskatchewan. He had no decendents that I know of.
    FX Loiselle was my great Grandad and he married a Robert ( she was 16) and he brought her back to Manitoba. They farmed there for about 25 years and had 11 children. they rlocated to Vonda Sask in about 1907.
    He died in 1959 at the age of 96. he had been run over by a car and survived but after a couple years passed away. He died while living with his daughter Rose in Gravelboug Sask.

      Hello Cousin!

      Thanks for sharing your Loiselle family stories.

      I read about your “branch” of the Loiselle family in a book “Vonda & Vicinity history book, the Histoire des Franco-Canadiens de la Sask”. It was Marc Loiselle sent the excerpt to me years ago.

      This is what I have about your great grandfather’s parents and siblings.
      I don’t have a Rock Loiselle that stayed in Richelieu…. but maybe I will find him.
      I did have a Henri Loiselle and showed him married with 12 children in 1911 Census and in 1900 Census showed him in North Dakota census.
      Does any of this ring a bell.

  2. Nancy Says:

    In checking re above found Mary Marcotte spouse of Henri Timothee had following children in R.M. of Sifton, Manitoba –
    Marie Antoinette Obeline – 19/03/1894
    Marie Emma – 25/03/1890
    Hormisdas Emile – 29/03/1893
    Joseph Daniel Napoleon – 09/03/1892
    Marie Anne Rosalia – 25/09/1887
    Could only find 9 children for Marie/Alma Robert spouse of Francois Xavier born in Manitoba.

    Karen – could use some help finding a Joseph A. Loiselle married to Antoinette Parisien – 1st child born 1915. Conceivably he could be son of Pierre & Genevieve but ?? Understand he did roam around Saskatchewan with spouse & children.
