Francois Blondeau m. Nicole Rolland des Pelleteaux | Evelyn in Montreal

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.

This is one of a series of posts organized under the heading Evelyn in Montreal where I chronicle some of the work I have done with other family historians and genealogists. Some information is original to this site but some has previously appeared at Genforum, Rootsweb and other genealogy boards. I am reproducing them here as those boards are closing down in order to preserve my connections with those family researchers.
