This series of Early French Canadian Pioneer  microposts is dedicated to the earliest settlers of Quebec. If you are new to the genealogy of French-speaking Canadians, please be aware that the earliest French settlers can also descend from the Acadian pioneers who originally settled in what are now Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. In addition, please note that any Native related links refer back to other posts citing census, marriage or other documents with indigenous or Metis individuals of that surname, however those individuals do not necessarily descend from those particular French Canadian settlers. The posts are intended as Finding Aides – a place to find possible clues and start your own research!

 

 


Filles du Roi is the name that’s been given to about 700/800 women who emigrated from France to Quebec in the middle of the 17th century. They were called the King’s Daughtersbecause Louis XIV (King of France) had sponsored their trips to the New World. Each Fillereceived her passage, a hope chest and room and board until her marriage (read further at The Canadian Encyclopedia).

Jeanne Auger was a Fille du Roi.  She was baptized on June 2nd, 1650 in Paris and her parents were Savignian Auge and Marie Harel. Her father was a book gilder. She died or was buried on October 18th, 1735 in Beaumont, Quebec. [[Genealogical notes – in French]

Some Lagasses of Maine/Massachusetts/New Hampshire | Evelyn in Montreal

Earlier this week I was contacted by Peter Lagasse of the Maine Mignier(Meunier)/Lagaces(Lagasse). Peter had already completed his line from Andre Mignier dit Lagace down to himself but wanted to doublecheck the data he’d collected against what I had in my database. The good news is that (with one exception see L.St-Hilaire) I was able to confirm Peter’s Quebec marriage dates with original documents or reputable indexes. This didn’t surprise me because Peter’s Reference List includes a wide-range of high quality sources that show him to be a methodical family history researcher. Continue reading

“You like po-tato and I like po-tahto!” Pt.2

Earlier, I had promised specific examples of the various Lagace dit Mignier surnames that have emerged out of  a recent spate of emails between five of us who are researching descendants of  Andre Mignier dit Lagace and Jacquette Michel.  Today (with their express permission) I’m sharing some excerpts from those emails. I begin with Fred who inspired these posts.

Fred Legacy is a direct descendant of Andre Mignier dit Lagace and Jacquette Michel through  Andre / Michel / Michel / Basil / Joseph / Pierre / Hypolite / Abraham  / Joseph / Walter / Joseph Lester.

Fred Legacy says:

Our line moved through Grand Falls, Van Buren, Jacquet River and Lepreau, New Brunswick. I reside on Campobello Island . … I descend from from Basile and Madeleine (Leclerc) through their son Joseph. The spelling variations of the name are very interesting.  In my own line, my Great Grandfather Abraham was a Lagace, however through records, Walter, my Grandfather, changes to Legace.  Walter’s children, are all recorded as Legacy.  It is said that Walter did not know how to read.  As with many French names, Lagace was written differently by English people trying to spell French names.  Walter relied that the spelling was correct when he said the family name.  I believe, from my research, that my line is the only one that ended up with the spelling as Legacy.  Could you confirm that?

 and the next day:

You know, after my last email to you, I started to wonder about my own questions to you, regarding whether my line was the only line to adopt the Legacy spelling. In all my research and document gathering, I never asked my Father to see his birth certificate!  Amazing how the simple things get over looked in favour of all the complicated ones. My research had shown that Abraham and Walter (my G/Grandfather and Grandfather respectively) were  Lagace and Legace, and then Walter’s children (my Dad and uncles) had become Legacy. You will never believe this…my Father, a few years ago got his birth certificate in preparation for retirement.  He showed it to me tonight, and his last name is spelled LAGACE !  With an accent over the last E.  This means that my father and his siblings were taught incorrectly (we believe at school) to spell his last name Legacy.  His father Walter did not know how to read or write and I know from a 1911 census that his Grandfather Abraham and Grandmother Louise did now know how either.  So with no one to tell the children any differently, they adopted Legacy and all important records (military, marriages, birth certificates of their children and even death records of my uncles) have this Legacy name. Just amazing isn’t it? Now this does not answer the original question are we the only “Legacy” branch – but it is an interesting story, and I know that it is actually my generation that is the official first of it!
