St-Charles-sur-Richelieu Quebec

June 12, 2010
It is on the Richelieu River, northwest of St-Hyacinthe.
The land belonging to Saint-Charles seigneury, granted in 1698.

Two children of Jean-Baptiste Loiselle and Marie-Anne Beaudry settled in St-Charles-sur-Richelieu from Pointe-aux-Trembles.

  • Jean-Bapstie Loiselle b 1721 married Apoline Desbles on 1748 in Pointe-aux-Trembles. They had 14 children in St-Charles between 1750 and 1770. Jean Baptiste died in 1788 in St-Charles, his wife, Apoline Desbles died in 1797 in St-Marc.
  • Toussaint Loiselle b 1725 married Marie-Anne Hogue on 1752 in St-Charles.  He settled on land that was conceded from his uncle, Jean-Baptiste Beaudry. Toussant and Maire-Anne had 6 children from 1752 to 1761 in St-Charles. And this was the time frame when the “dit Sinotte” name was introduced.

It was a granddaughter of Toussaint Loiselle, Adelaide Loiselle that married Amable Hebert in 1817 in St-Marc. They settled in St-Charles having 10 children. Amable Hebert, as did some of his siblings, died in the Patriotes battle of St-Charles on Nov 25, 1837. This family seemed pretty settled there.

St-Charles was had an important role in the Patriotes Rebellions of 1837.

At the battle of St-Charles – lead by Thomas Storrow Brown on the Patriotes side with maybe 60 to 100 militia and by Lieutenant Colonel George Wetherall onthe Loyalist side – with 430 in his command. 3 English soldiers died, but from 60 to 100 Patriotes died depending on the source.   These included Amable Hebert b 1791 husband of Adelaide Loiselle m 1817 in St-Marc. As well as Amable Hebert’s brother Jean-Baptiste Herbert b 1793.

Some of the casualities from this battle are remembered on the Monument of Patriotes at St-Charles. 

Face is: “Killed in the battle of November 25, 1837: Abraham Remy Bellefleur, Joseph Boulé, Henri Chaume, Peter Emery Coderre, Joseph Comeau Joseph Fénix said Dauphinais, Dauphinais said Louis Fénix, Pion said Isaac Fontaine, Joseph Goddu, Gabriel Gosselin, Amable Hebert, Jean-Baptiste Hébert, Pierre Hébert-Lambert, Marc Jeannotte dit Lachapelle, Moses Lemoyne, Olivier Lescault, André Lévesque André Loiselle, “said Gabriel Amiel Lusignan, Lusignan said Amiel N. .. N. .. Menard, Francois Mingot Moses Pariseau, Xavier Pariseau, N. .. Provost and some other unidentified. “

In early 1800s the village flourished with trade associated with river transportation . But with the rail and roads, St-Charles lost its advantage of being on the river and returned to agricultural focus.

There are still Loiselle descendants in St-Charles today.

Early History of Montreal

June 11, 2010

Sep 14, 1535 – Jacques Cartier first arrives in Quebec City – the Iroquoian capital of Stadacona. [He had sailed to Canadian Atlantic Provinced, Gulf of St Lawrence and Chaleur Bay the year before in 1534 thinking that he had reached the Asian coast. ]

Oct 2, 1535 – Jacques Cartier firsts arrives in Hochelaga (Montreal) on the smallest of the three ships of his fleet. At Hochela he climbs Mont-Royal the next day. He was stopped from proceeding further by the rapids, which were thought to be the passage to China and thats why they were named Lachine Rapids.  Cartier, though, was one of the first to formally acknowledge that the New World was a separate land mass from Europe/Asia.

Jul 3, 1608 was when the first  permanent European settlement was established in Canada by Samuel Champlain in Quebec City.  He had previously participated in the settlment of Port Royal, Acadia in 1605.

Jun 1641, Maisonneuve and Jeanne Mance, with three other women and about fifty men, set sail to Canada and arrive in Quebec by end of August.  The intent was to set up a mission in Montreal. 

Jan 1, 1642 – There are 7 inhabitants in Montreal, 107 years after Jacques Cartier first landed there.

May 5, 1642 – Paul de Chomdey de Maisonneuve leaves Quebec for Montreal, he and 50 others founded the post of Ville-Marie (Montreal).  On May 18, the first mass in Ville Marie was celebrated by Barthelemy Vimont, the superior of the Jesuits, with both French and Indians present.

Jun 9, 1643 – The Iroquois kill their first victims in Montreal. Forty Iroquis warriors suprise six frenchmen hewing timber within a gun shot of the fort, the Iroquis kill three of them and take the remaining three as prisoners.  For the next two years, the Iroquis continue to harass Montreal with attacks on March 16, 1644, and March 30th.    At this time, the inhabitants of Ville Marie were living for the most part communally in barracks within the fort, with only a few living on their own private means.

Jan 12, 1644  – Jeanne Mance opens the first hospital in Montreal within the fort.

In 1645,  Maisonneuve granted the first concession outside the fort to Jeanne Mance so that she could build Hotel Dieu de Montreal.

1646 – The Palisade of Fort Ville Marie was complete, after started in 1642.

Feb 27, 1647 – the first ball in Montreal.

Aug 1647 –  Louis Loisel first arrived in Montreal on Maisonneuve‘s second recruitment trip to France. Marguerite Charlot was on the same ship.   At that time, the situation in the colonies was becoming quite dangerous with the Agniers and the Iroquois, limiting movement outside the fort – not even able to go to collect firewood without armed guards.

Jan 4, 1648 – Pierre Gadois is awarded by Chomedey, then governor of the colony, the first land grant  outside  the fort and is the first farmer. But in 1645 his house is broken into on several occasions to steal food and he returns to Quebec city from 1646-1647.   [A map of the early land grants in Montreal are provided here.  My Louis Loisel got his first land grant in 1655.]

Jan 13, 1648 – Louis Loisel and Marguerite Charlot are married at the home of Jeanne Mance, with Paul de Chomedey, Gilbert Barbier and Charles le Moyne in attendence.

Nov 24, 1648 – Barbe Meusnier, daughter of Mathurin Meusnier and Francoise Fafart, is the first white child born  in Montreal -she died shortly thereafter [Dec 3, 1648].

Jul 24, 1649 – Jeanne Loiselle is born, she is the first white child born in Montreal to grow to school age and adult hood.

Jan 1, 1650 – Montreal has 196 inhabitants.  That is the year that Michel Chauvin is accused of bigamy.

1650 – Father Claude Pijart is appointed to Montreal, coming from Ste-Marie among the Algonquins.  He will later baptise Francoise and Joseph Loiselle.

1650 – Maisonneuve builds a house for himself of Rue Saint-Paul. Between 1650 and 1672, 94 houses were built in Montreal. Louis Loisel’s house being #51 on map of Montreal on 1672.

Jun 18, 1651 – Montreal battles 50 Iroquois and in July 26, 1651 – Iroquois attack the hospital.  

The start of the 1650s, Ville-Marie (Montreal) was in danger. The settlement was under constant attack by the Iroquois and there were only a few dozen men left to defend the colony. Some of the first to arrive here became discouraged and returned to France, their homeland. 1651 was a particularly difficult year. No one dared go out unarmed and no month went by without victims. Jeanne Mance had to abandon the Hôtel-Dieu and take refuge, like many others, in the Ville-Marie fort.

Feb 26, 1652 – Francoise Loiselle is born. She was baptised by Claude Pijart, her godparents were Lambert Closse and Francoise Gode

April 16, 1652 – “Le Cid” is performed in Montreal. Kind of fun to imagine Louis Loisel and Marguerite Charlot watching the play – although their second daughter Francoise is just about two months old at the time – would Marguerite have gone to the play?

Sep 22, 1653 – 100 soldiers arrive to defend Montreal against the Iroquois. They were recruited by Jeanne Mance, who used the money that was to be spent on the hospital, the Grande Recrue.

1658 –  Maisonneuve contracts Jacques Archambault to dig a well it the Fort Ville-Marie

Feb 6, 1662- Lambert Closse died fighing the Iroquois.

Aug 30, 1663 – Barbe Loiselle is born in Ville Marie – the day before the eclipse of the sun in New France. At the start of the year, there were 2,000 inhabitants of the town.  That was also the year of the Earthquake in Montreal. The earthquake last more than 6 months from February 5th to the month of September.

1666 – another Census is completed.

1666 – The boys school is opened in Montreal.  The boys of the colony at that time, were attending Marguerite Bourgeois’s school with the girls. Did Joseph Loiselle attend, he would have been abut 10 at that time?

1669 – Louis XIV institutes mandatory military service for all valide men of NewFrance between ages 16 and 60 with each parish having its militia.  Which is just at Joseph Loiselle turns 16.

1670 – the first map demonstrating that the Great Lakes were all connected, the year that the Hudson’s Bay Company is founded. 

1674 – Pointe-aux-Trembles is founded.  Laurent Archambault and Francois Bau were elected churchwarded for the construction of the church in Pointe-aux-Trembles.

1680-1685 – More and more voyageurs, coureurs des bois and missionaries exploring the regions upriver from Montreal toward the Great Lakes, impacting the fur fairs in Montreal.

In the Montreal census of 1681, Louis Loisel, locksmith, 64 years old, and Marguerite Charlot, 57 years old, had as neighbors Jean-Vincent Philippe, Sieur de Hautmesny, and Charles d’Ailleboust, Sieur des Mousseaux. Louis and Marguerite owned 1 gun, 2 head of cattle, and had 30 arpents under cultivation. A single son, Joseph, still lived with them.

Dec 9, 1681, Joseph Loisel bought land in Saint-Jean (later Pointe-aux-Trembles) from Francois Bau and his wife.

On 26 May 1682, Paul Aguenier was ordered to pay the damages that his animals had caused to the grains of Louis Loisel

1682 – Rene Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle, travelled all the way to the mouth of the Mississippi River. 

8 August 1684,  Loisel won his case against Marthe Autreux, wife of Pierre Chauvin, who had killed one of the plaintiff’s pigs after having surprised the animal in the act of ransacking his fields

18 June 1686, Loisel was ordered to do so because he had refused to ‘have thrashed les fredoches, which spoiled a homestead”.

On 2 August 1688, Louis Loisel (engageur ouest) with some partners, Antoine Bazinet, Jacques Chaperon, Pierre Janot and Robert Janot all invested in a trading journey to the West.  Bazinet, Chaperon and Janot would make the trading journey and return in the autumn of 1689 in order to pay the creditors in good beaver pelts and to share the profits.

Oct 3, 1706 – Margureite Charlot dies at Pointe-aux-Trembles , 15 years after her husband.

Kaskaskia IL

June 7, 2010

As early as 1688/9, Louis Loisel, of Montreal was “engageur ouest” to Kaskaskia, IL. He died in 1691.

In 1692,  after his death, Louis’s son, Joseph Loiselle organized trade voyages to Kaskaskia as “engageur ouest” as well.  He had a son Joseph born that year 1692.

In 1708, Barbe Loisel, Joseph Loiselle’s sister, with her then husband Francois LeGantier were both in Ste-Anne-de-Detroit, MI.

Toussaint Loiselle b 1689, the oldest surviving son of Louis Loisel,  married Cecile Brunet in 1723 in Kaskaskia IL. They settled and raised their family and future Loiselle’s in the area of Fort de Chartres.   One child Toussaint Loisel b 6 Feb 1726 in Fort de Chartres IL and he died  10 Dec 1746 in Kaskaskia. 

 There are other Loiselle’s shown born in this area after 1723 that may be their children:

Madeleine Loisel married Andre Chevalier 1758 in Kaskaskia and then Pierre de Giradeau in 1760 in Fort de Chartres, IL.  

There is a Joseph Loiselle married to Genevieve Kensero in 1754 in Kaskaska. Not sure how he is connected to Toussaint’s Loiselle. 

There is an Antoine Loisel b 1726 in Fort de Chartres, IL and marrie d Joseph Texier in 1743 in Fort de Chartres.  Toussaint Loisel  had business in 1726  related to custody of the late Pierre Milleret to be transfered to Jean-Baptiste Texier, brother in law and tenant of the said children.  So Antoine Loisel may be someohow related to Toussaint Loisel.

There was a Nicolas Loisel in some records, but I wander if  he might might be the Nicolas Loisel from St-Martin Parish, LA.

There is mention of Regis Loisel in the Kaskaskia area, a missionary and his father  Regis Loisel, a fur trader,  born in Montreal area about 1773 and becoming involved in fur trade early on and in St-Louis by 1793.  They are descendants of  another Louis Losiel born about 1676 in Liseiux, Bayeux, Normandie. He came to Canada as a soldier at Fort Quebec in 1693 and died in Charlesbourg, QC in 1743.  There is no known relationship of these Loiselle’s to the Louis Loisel descendants born 60 years earlier and settled in Montreal when he came to Canada in 1647.

[Will add more Loiselle connections to Kaskaskia as I get to them]

The route from Montreal to Kaskaskia was generally from Montreal they would go on the Ottawa River and across to Lake Nipissing. Then down the French River to Lake Huron. They would then travel to where Lake Huron, Lake Superior, and Lake Michigan all meet and go down Lake Michigan (called Lake Illinois or “lac des Illinois” by the French).

In 1673, Jesuit Father Jacques Marquette and French-Canadian explorer Louis Joliet go south from Green Bay, up Fox River and down Wisconsin River to Mississippi.  But  on return trip, they describe going along the Illinois River east to Lake Michigan instead.

Rob Louisell provided this photograph taken by his wife Linda. It is a photo of a sign in Mackinaw City which details the French explorers’ travels around the Great Lakes.


And from there, along the Mississippi St. Louis, Pairie du Rocher and Ste Genevieve to Kaskaskia.

What a trip of over 1,300 miles by canoe and trekking.

Here are some of the early marriages in Kaskaskia and this one lists the three Loisel marriages there.

Lambert Closse

June 6, 2010

Son of Jean Closse and Cecile de la Fosse, born in Lorraine Region of France.

He crossed to New France in 1647 and settled in Ville Marie.

He was equerry (in charge of the stables) and Sergeant Major of the city garrison.

He replaced the governor, Paul de Chomedey de Maisonneuve, during his absences.

On Feb 26, 1652, Lambert Closse and Francoise Gode were godparents to Francoise Loiselle, b. Feb 26, 1651 in Montreal, QC

In 1651, on Sainte-Anne’s Day, 200 Iroquois attacked Ville-Marie, particularly the hospital. Lambert Closse and his men continued this desperate struggle throughout the whole day. The attackers lost a lot of men. Denys Archambault, oldest son of Jacques Archambault, while lighting a cannon for the third time, “was killed by an explosion from this weapon which shattered and killed a lot of the enemy”.

He was given a land grant in Montreal in 1658.

Lambert Closse married Elisabeth Moyen on 12 Aug 1658 and they had two daughters.

Lambert was killed in combat against the Iroquois on 6 Feb 1662 in Montreal.

Jean Desroches and Francoise Gaude

Francoise Gode or Gaude was named after her mother.
Arrived in Ville-Marie in 1642 with the whole family. She was from Perche Region of France and was nine years old at the time.
She married at age of 14, in 1647, to Jean Desroches. This was the first wedding celebrated in Ville Marie.
The couple had 13 chldren, Francoise died at Pointe-aux-Trembles on 9 Mar 1715 at 82 years of age.

Their two sons, Jean and Nicolas, were one of the first students of Marguerite Bourgeoys’ first school in Montreal, in 1653 – with Francoise and Jeanne Loisel.   The boys went to school with the girst until mid 1600s.  Later the Suplician priests, in particularl, Gabriel Souart, taught the boys.

Marguerite Bourgeoys

June 6, 2010

There is a great Biography of Marguerite Bourgeoys in wikipedia.  She was sixth of 12 children and when her mother died when she was 19, she took care of her brothers and sisters. Her father died when she was 27. She was recruited by Paul Chomedey to come to New France as a teacher and sailed to New France in 1653.  She initiated the building of Notre Dame de BonSecours Chapel and opened her first school in 1658. 

The Loisel’s were among some of her first school children.  Including Jeanne and Francoise Loisel, the daughters of Louis Loisel. Jeanne Loisel was the first student  of Marguerite Bourgeoys that survived to grown age. 

 In 1653, Marguerite Bourgeoys found only a few children in the young colony because the first children born in the small colony did not often survive.  She didn’t find but the small Jeanne Loisel that she gave lessons to.  “on a ete environ huit ans” dit la soeur Bourgeoys, “sans pouvoir garder d’enfant a Montreal. La premiere qui est restee vivante  fut Jeanne Loysel, que l’on me donna a quatre ans et demi, et qui a ete elevee et a demeure a la maison jusqu’a son mariage avec Jean Beauchamp”

The “stable” school was first opened in 1657, when Jeanne Loisel was about 8 years old.

The school was in an old stable. The ground floor was the classroom and the attic was the dormitory for the teachers.

On the first day of school 30 April 1658:  She and her sister Francoise joined other children at the school – there were enough surviving children by then: Jean and Nicolas Desroches, Adrienne Barbier, Catherine Daugigeon, Marie Lucault and Jean Leduc.  Jeanne at 8 years 9 months, was the oldest. Jean Desroches, born 11 Dec 1649 was the first son to survive in the Montreal settlement.  The two youngest, Jean Leduc and Catherin Daubigeon didn’t reach their 5th birthday, Adrienne Barbier, later married Etienne Trudeau. 

The students of the time, they learned religion and reading, writing and arthmetic. The girls would have also been taught sewing and cooking to help them manage households and farms in that time.

In these first years, brothes Nicolas and Jean Desroches and Jean Leduc  attended Marguerite Bourgeoys school which boys attended with the girls until  the mid-1660s. Later the Suplician priests, in particularl, Gabriel Souart, taught the boys.

Jeanne Loisel was raised by Marguerite Bourgeouys from age 4 and a half until Jeanne married at age 17 to Jean Beauchamp. 

After two return trips to France to recruit more women teachers, she started the Sisters of the Congregation of Notre Dame.

In 1680, Marguerite and Marie Barbier, went to set up a mission and school in Pointe-aux-Trembles, again likely teaching the daughters of  Joseph, Jeanne and Francoise Loisel as well as other children of the early inhabitants of Pointe-aux-Trembles.

In 1693, Soeur Marie Barbier, daughter of Gabriel Barbier, succeeded Marguerite Bourgeoys in heading the Congregation.  Marie Barbier was the first Canadian born to join the congregation.

Marguerite Bourgeoys died Jan 12, 1700.

I thought that this is a great activities book for school visits to the Marguerite Bourgeoys Museum.

Generation 2: Jeanne Loisel m Jean Beauchamp

June 6, 2010

Jeanne Loisel was the eldest daughter of Louis Loisel and Marguerite Charlot.

Jeanne’s baptism was conducted in Latin: “En L’anne de Seigneur 1649 le 24 juillet, moi Jean Dequen pretre de la Societe de Jesus, agissant au nom de cette paroisse, ai baptise une enfant du pere, Louis Loysel et de la mere, Marguerite Charlot, nee to jour susmentionne. Le parrain fut Jean Pappe et la marraine Roberte Gadois, (de celle) a qui on a impose le nom de Jeanne.”

Volume 18, page 152 of Our French Canadian Ancestors, translated into English Thomas LaForest says, “Jeanne was raised by Margurete Bourgeoys(now a Saint of the Catholic Church, 2005). She lived with the nuns beginning at the age of 4 and one half until her marriage. She was the first daughter of the French nation, born at Montreal, who was married and became a mother of a family. She married Jean Beauchamp, 28 years old, on November 23 Notre-Dame of Montreal, and knew the joys of 8 births. She was buried on 4 October 1708.

Jeanne Loisel was the first student  of Marguerite Bourgeoys that survived to grown age.  In 1653, Marguerite Bourgeoys found only a few children in the young colony because the first children born in the small colony did not often survive.  She didn’t find but the small Jeanne Loisel that she gave lessons to.  “on a ete environ huit ans” dit la soeur Bourgeoys, “sans pouvoir garder d’enfant a Montreal. La premiere qui est restee vivante  fut Jeanne Loysel, que l’on me donna a quatre ans et demi, et qui a ete elevee et a demeure a la maison jusqu’a son mariage avec Jean Beauchamp”

The “stable” school was first opened in 1657, when Jeanne was about 8 years old. Jeanne is reported to have lived with Marguerite Bourgeoysfrom the age of 4 until age  she married Jean Beauchamp. That suggests that Jeanne would have lived in the loft of the Stable school when it was built, as that was where Marguerite Bourgeoys lived.

 Marguerite Bourgeoys Stable School in MontrealThis is the image of the stable school that they showed us when we visited the Museum de Marguerite Bourgeouys on our trip to Montreal on Jun 29, 2013.  586px-Montreal-Marguerite_Bourgeoys,_Blvd_St_Laurent_-_Rue_le_Royer_Est

When we were in Montreal on weekend of Jun 29, 2013, we stopped at the corner of Blvd St Laurent and Rue Le Royer E which is proported to be the location of the Stable School.

On the first day of school 30 April 1658:  Jeanne Loisel and her sister Francoise joined other children at the school – there were enough surviving children by then: Jean and Nicolas Deroches, Adrienne Barbier, Catherine Daugigeon, Marie Lucault and Jean Leduc.  Jeanne at 8 years 9 months, was the oldest. Jean Desroches, born 11 Dec 1649 was the first son to survive in the Montreal settlement.  The two youngest, Jean Leduc and Catherin Daubigeon didn’t reach their 5th birthday, Catherine Barbier, later married Etienne Trudeau.

The students of the time, they learned religion and reading, writing and arthmetic. The girls would have also been taught sewing and cooking to help them manage households and farms in that time.

A few years later, daughter of Gilbert Barbier, Marie, started school and was the first Montrealer to become a member of the Congregation of Notre-Dame and later succeeded Mere Bourgeoys as superior in 1693-1698.

Jeanne was later married in the house of Marguerite Bourgeoys – in Nov 1666 to Jean Beauchamp.

Jean Beauchamp came to Montreal from France when he was 14 years old, he accompanied his older brother Jacques Beauchamp, and his wife, Marie Dardenne.

Jeanne and Jean Beauchamp had three children in Montreal.  They moved to Pointe-aux-Trembles between 1672-1676 where they had five more children.

On 13 Mar 1678, Honore Langlois, her father, and Jean Beauchamp, husband of Jeanne Loisel participated in the blessing of the new church in Pointe-aux-Trembles after the building was complete.

In 1681, Jean Beauchamp and his family are recorded in the census at Pointe-aux-Trembles. “Jean Beauchamp, 43 years, Jeanne Loisel, his wife 34 years, their children Marie 12, Francoise 10, Jean 5, Pierre 2, 1 rifle, 3 animals with horns, 9 arpents in value”. Four more children will be born to Jean and Jeanne.

It is likely that the Beauchamp children (girls and granddaughters) would have attended the school lessons that Marguerite Bourgeoys and Soeur Marie Barbier set up in 1680 to prepare the children for their communion. And attended later at the wooden school house that was built in 1690.

On 27 January 1693, he receives from the priest and the parish trustees of Pointe-aux-Trembles a plot of thirty-five feet in frontage by seventy feet in depth on Rue Saint-Jean, and, on the following 4 March, the landlords of the Isle of Montreal grant him, at the same location, on Rue Saint-Francois, a plot of twenty-six feet by nineteen feet.  The combination of these two pieces of land that are next to each other amount to 3244 square feet, or three quarters (0.75) of an acre.

Not long thereafter, on 8 February 1693, his brother Jacques dies, and Jean Beauchamp is called to act as administrator on behalf of his nephews, for the distribution of his brother’s estate.

January 21, 1700 ” ill at home, sitted on a chair, but in good spirits” Jean settles his debts before dying with Pierre Lamoureux de Saint-Germain, including 769 pounds, 4 properties, 4 money debts.  Jean Beauchamp was in debt most of his life but was sure to pay off all his debt before he died. He then dictates his will to the notary Adhemar. He has a requiem mass and gives 200 pounds to Father Chaigneau who must do with it what he has told him secretly. He died at Pointe-aux-Trembles on May 4, 1700.

The notary Cusson drew up an inventory of Jean Beauchamps goods on January 5, 1701. His widow, Jeanne Loisel, survives  him by a few years and was buried in Montreal on October 4, 1708.

Pointe-Aux-Trembles, Quebec

June 6, 2010

Most of the children of Louis Loisel ended up moving to Pointe-aux-Trembles Quebec just across from Ile of Montreal.

Here are some of the early inhabitants of Pointe-aux-Trembles, most coming from Montreal.

  • Francois Bau
  • Toussaint Beaudry married to Barbe Barbier, daughter of Gilbert Barbier
  • Joseph Loiselle m. Jeanne Langois in PAT in 1682, and they had 13 children in PAT.
  • Laurent Archambault, son of Jacques Archambault.
  • Honore Langlois, father of Jeanne Langlois that married Joseph Loiselle in 1682. 
  • Jean Beauchamp, wife of  Jeanne Loisel, their fourth of 8 children was born in Pointe-aux-Trembles in 1676.
  • Guillaume Labelle

Point-aux-Trembles is on the north est of the Ile of Montreal.   It was 27 years after the foundation of Ville-Marie, that the first concession of land in Pointe-aux-Tremble was given by the priests of the seminar of Saint-Suplice de Ville-Marie.

Pointe-aux-Trembles is located where the St Lawrences and the Rivieres-des-Prairies join and was selected as a location to help defend Montreal.

On 5 April 1669, M. Queylus, gave 60 arpents of land to Jean Oury dit Lamarche and to others with the condition that a church and moulin be built. 

Toussaint Beaudry bought, for 220 livres his first property there on 9 September 1670, from Pierre Bareau dit LaGogue, a soldier at the garrison of Montréal – between Pierre Papin and François Bau. He settled their with his wife Barbe Barbier and their 10 children.

The construction d’un moulin a farine was not built until 1672.  As the population grew, the priests started having mass and administering sacrements in the house of a colonist Francois Bau and his wife, Francoise Bugon.

The Sieur Picote de Belestre was granted the concession on 28 July 1671 establishing the parish of L’Engant-Jesus. A wooden fort was build at Pointe-aux-Trembles as early as 1675, a windmill followed in 1677 and in 1678 the church was built

A priest from the Sulpiciens would celebrate mas every Sunday for three years at Pointe-aux-Trembles.  It wasn’t until 1674 that the community started planning for the building of a church.

On 18 Nov 1674, “les principaux habitants du bas de l’ile de Montreal” met with M. Jean Fremont, piete of Seminaire Montreal at the house of Francois Beau and decided to build a church with the  people of the parish given what they could. They also elected two marguiliers: Francois Beau and Laurent Archambault, de la cote Sainte-Anne, were unanimously elected.

The building complete, on 13 Mar 1678 it was blessed by l’Enfant-Jesus by M. Lefebvre, superier de Seminaire et vicaire general. Assisted by monsieur le cure Seguenot and monsieur Jean Cavelier, frere de sieur LaSalle. Also attending included Honore Langlois, Jean Beauchamp, epoux de Jeanne Loisel, Francois Bau, ancien marguillier, Toussaint Beaudry, wife of Barbe Barbier and “gendre” of Gilbert Barbier, the builder of Ville-Marie.

This was the first church, L’Enfant Jesus,  build outside of Montreal itself. It was a stone church that measured 36 feet by 24 feet.

Pointe-aux-Trembles, known back then as Saint-Jean, was rapidly developing in 1680.  Marguerite Bourgeoys was requested to set up a “mission ambulant”, and some of the women working with her came to PAT including soeur Marie Barbier, helping prepare children for communion.  In 1690, Marguerite Bourgeoys was asked to establish a permanent establishment and a wood building was built. It is likely that the girls and granddaughters of Loisel’s went to classes in this building.

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.

Jul 2, 1690, there were a number of people killed by the Iroquois (Joseph Cartier, Jean Delpe, John Jolata, Nicolas Joly, Jean Raynaud and William Richard).

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.  In 1739, his son Jean Baptiste Loiselle was elected Marguillier. In 1690, Jeanne’s father Honore Langlois was elected Marguillier. In 1693, Jean Beauchamp, his brother in law, was elected member of the counsel  de la fabrique.

In 1718, a windmill was built by master mason, Jean-Baptiste Deguire.  In 1721, the mill is leased to Jean-Baptiste Gibala. In 1837, the windmill is sold to Anne Smith, wife of Louis Mignault.  He sells it in 1906.

Here is a picture of the windmill after it was restored in 2007.  At three stories is is the tallest windmill in Quebec that still stands.  It is at the corner of Notre Dame Street and Third Avenue.

Here is an online version of the Repetoire of th Marriages of L’Enfant Jesus de la Pointe aux Trembles.

Will add additional information as I come across it.  Would love to hear from you if you have other information to recommend.

Montreal Land Grants 1650-1666

June 6, 2010

Paul Chomedey de Maisonneuve would act as governor of the colony. On January 4, 1648, he granted Pierre Gadois  the first concession of land of 40 acres. Others including Charles Lauzon, Robert Lecavelier et Adrienne Duvivier, Jean Desroches, Urbain Tessier dit Lavgne and Jacques Archambault.

My ancester Louis Loisel was granted his first property in 1655 – but outside of the “old city” . See the map  of Montreal here.

The following is the call out of the land usage within the “old city” of Montreal in 1655. Notice that Adrienne Vivier is the only woman named on the property list. And this website provides details of the property ownership in the years aftwards as well as the 1655 map.

And this is a map of Montreal in 1672 but it doesn’t show details of the property owners.

Map of montreal 1672


Some of the land grants given included:

  • Pierre  Gadois is awarded the first land grant in Montreal on Jan 4, 1648
  • Gilbert Barbier in 1650 and again later in 1662
  • Jacques Archambault in 1651. in Dec 1663, after the death of his wife Francoise Tourault, he leases his farm in Montreal to Pierre Dardenne for three years, the transaction was done in the presence of his son in law Jean Gervaise.
  • Urbain Tessier in 1651 (son in law of Jacques Archambault)
  • Louis Loisel in 1655. He later liquidated his property in Montreal in Mar 1690 at the age of 72, going to live with his daughter Barbe Loisel then married to Francois LeGantier.
  • Jean Gervaise in 1655 (son in law of Jacques Archambault)
  • Lambert Closse in 1658 – he lead a defense of the Palisade of l’ Hotel Dieu in 1651 against an Iroquois attack with many losses including Denys Archambault.

See the PDF of the map here: Montreal Land Grants 1600s   which was sourced from some Archimbault research that I read.

There are some interesting anticdotes in the timeline of Montreal on Wikipedia.

Jacques Archambault (1641-1695)

June 5, 2010

Jacques Archambault with his family immigrated from France to Quebec City sometime between 1645-1647.   He was probably recruited by Pierre Le Gardeur de Repentigny, Director of Embarkations at La Rochelle from 1645 to 1647, and who was also Commander of a ship called Le Cardinal.

 It was in 1652 that Jacques Archambault  moved to Montreal where he was commissioned to built Montreal’s first well.   He was one of the first settlers provided a land grant by Paul de Chemedey in 1652. See the map of early land grants here. A well in the fort would help the colonists withdstand any siege from the Iroquois.

Mr. Gabriel de Queylus, a Sulpicien and founder of the Saint-Sulpice Seminary of Montréal, asked the colonist Archambault to dig a well “…in the garden of the hospital…” after his success in building the one a few years earlier for the Montreal fort.  And Jacques Archambault was asked to build many more of the wells of Montreal over the years.

Here is a great write up of Jacques Archambault’s experience in Canada. I came across the write up on that world wide web, it was written  by Pierre Archambault, Archivist.

Two of Jacques Archambault’s children ended up on Pointe-aux-Trembles, so it is not  unexpected that the families would become connected. When Louis Loisel moved to Pointe-aux-Trembles, he was a neighbour of Toussant Beaudry.  

 Marie Anne Loiselle is the 2nd great-granddaughter of Jacques Archambault. Marie Anne Loiselle is daughter of Marie-Anne Beaudry (m Jean Baptiste Loiselle), daughter of Francois Archambault (m. Toussaint Beaudry), daughter of Laurent Archambault, son of Jacques Archambault.

Marie-Anne Loiselle married her second cousin Jean-Baptiste Gervaris.   Jean Baptiste Gervais is also a descendant of Jacques Archambault. He is son of Nicholas Gervaise (m. Madeleine Payet) who ended up in Pointe-aux-Trembles, son of Anne Archambault (m. Jean Gervaise), daughter of Jacques Archambault.
