Evelyn in Montreal: Francois Blondeau m. Nicole Rolland des Pelleteaux
I am trying to find anything on Francois Blondeau (1642?-1702)and his wife Nicole Rolland in Quebec. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Melissa Harvey
Francois Blondeau was born about 1630 in Saumur (Notre-Dame-de-Nantilly) (Maine-et-Loire), France, to Daniel Blondeau and Francoise Duvau.
He was an early Quebec settler (defricheur) and his first appearance in Quebec records was in 1651.
On February 8th, 1655 he married Nicole Rolland Des Pelleteaux in Notre-Dame parish in Quebec.
There are records in France for two brothers – Philippe who was baptised on May 1st, 1632 and Daniel who was baptised on August 9th, 1629.
Francois died (or was buried) on April 4th, 1702 in Charlesbourg, Quebec.
