    Residence:
    • This map shows the property of Francois Belanger and Marie Guyon

    Fact 1:
    • Québec. Francois was born in 1612 in Saint-Pierre, village and church of Seez in the south of Normandy. He was brought over by Robert Giffard in 1636 (according to a note of the Jesuits) and married in 1637. Records of Notre-Dame-de-Québec, marriages show François and Marie Guyon (July 12, 1637) had two children married there, Marie Madeleine & Nicolas (who married Marie de Rainville).. He married thirteen year old Marie Guyon, daughter of Jean and Mathurine Robin. This union was blessed by Father Charles Lallemant, of Notre-Dame-des-Anges. The marriage contract was signed in 1640. This document described him as a mason by trade. It was drawn up by Jean Guyon, notary royal of Canada. This couple had 12 children, of which 10 had children of their own.

    Fact 2:
    • November 7, 2013
      Francois Belanger and Marie Guyon
      Francois Belanger, a Hogue ancestor, was born around 1612, probably in Normandy, France. He was a mason by trade, but we don't know exactly when he came to New France. He was certainly here by July 27, 1636 when he was a witness to the marriage contract between Robert Drouin and Anne Cloutier. On July 12, 1637 he married Marie Guyon, daughter of Jean and Mathurine. This was the first double wedding in New France, on the same day as Robert and Anne's wedding.

      By 1641 Francois had land on the Beaupré coast as seen in this map, where he is next to another ancestor Zacharie Cloutier (junior).

      Francois was apparently an educated man and became very successful in New France. He was appointed Assistant Administrator for Longue Pointe in 1653. Civil records document numerous lawsuits indicating that he "earned a reputation as an honest but hard man with whom to do business". (Source: Our French Canadian Ancestors by Thomas John Laforest (Palm Harbour, Fla. : LISI Press, c1983, Vol. 6 page 22).

      In 1669 a militia was formed to defend the colony, and Francois was named Captain of the Beaupré coast. In 1677 Frontenac, the Governor of New France, made him a Seigneur, and granted him the Seigneury of L'Islet-de-Bonsecours, about 100 km east of today's Quebec City.

      We don't know exactly when he died but it was between October 1685, when he gave property to one of his sons, and 1687, when Marie signed a document that indicates she was a widow. Marie died October 1, 1696.

      Francois and Marie had twelve children. We descend from Charles who married Barbe Cloutier, a granddaughter of Zacharie Cloutier and Xainte Dupont. Two other siblings also married grandchildren of Zacharie and Dupont. You see how intertwined these families were!

      Here is our descent from Francois Belanger to Pépère:
