Guillaume was born about 1645.

Guillaume D'Aoust, a tailor by trade, was originally from Sissonne in Picardie, France. Although it is not known when he arrived in New France, on January 12th 1675 he signed a document with Benigne Basset, a Montreal notary. He spent most of his life living on Lake St Louis at the western end of the island of Montreal. Several of those years were spent in Lachine. His signature is found on many entries in the register above: as a bridegroom, as a proud father, as a witness to events such as the Lachine massacre and a smallpox epidemic of 1703. [1]

Guillaume D’Aoust emigrated to New France and married Madeleine de la Londe in 1686. This means he was around 40 when he married! Since the records are lost from Sissonne, we cannot verify his actual birth date. If the year 1645 is correct, Guillaume arrived in New France c.1674 when he was in his late 20s. Considering the shortage of marriageable women in the colony, it could have been a few years before he found someone suitable. Madeleine was the daughter of his neighbour and quite young (around 12) when they were engaged in 1684. He married her 2 years later on February 18, 1686.[2]

The above source refers to two siblings, birthdates unknown - Madeleine who married Jacques de Lancy on Aug 6, 1668 in Sissonne. Marie who married Azor Frussart and had six children. [3]

IV - GUILLAUME D'AOUST (the 1st) born and baptized in 1645 in Sissonne, Laon, Picardie, France. Occupation: Tailor. He died Mar 8, 1729 (at age of 84) and is buried at Ste-Anne-de- Bellevue, Que. On June 12, 1675, Guillaume D'Aoust was listed as having a concession of land in Montreal. For him to already have his own land at the approximately age of 19, would presuppose he came from a well-to-do family in France. - Guillaume married Marie Madeleine de La londe (daughter of Jean de La londe and Marie Barban) on Feb 18, 1686 at the parish of Saints-Anges-Gardiens of Lachine. Guillaume was about 30 and Madeleine was only 14. Madeleine died Jan 3, 1761 (at age of 89).[4]

Biography from Genealogical Dictionary of Canadian Families; Genealogical Dictionary of Families of Quebec

Mary Magdalene was aged only fifteen years old at that time; and the baptismal events took place just before the French declaration of war against the Iroquois in May 1687; thus causing a hostile activity period Iroquois enemy on and around the island of "Mont-Real." Many French colonists, being neighbors, relatives and friends of William and Mary Magdalene were killed during this tumultuous period. The closest probably was the death of the father of Mary Magdalene, John La Londe said Hope, who was killed during an attack by the Iroquois in September 1687. The name of William appears when signatureau register and the priest François D'Urfé bury John, his stepfather, and those killed with him. All the activities of the parish cease after November 1687, and according to early records, it appears that these families have moved and are grouped with the people of Lachine, close. The hostile skirmishes continue, and two years Later came the horrible massacre of Lachine during the nights of 4 and 5 August 1689. The documents relating to this heinous event show that William and Mary Magdalene lived in this place in time; as well as his mother Mary our Barban, who had remarried. What followed was a massacre of 200 French colonists, 80 soldiers and the horrible fate of another 120 settlers kidnapped and tortured to death. Miraculously, the family survives this terrible event. The signature of William is still found five years later, in 1694, in the records of the late discovery of some skeletons captured during the nights .. William and Mary Magdalene had no child at the time of the massacre; but it was, no doubt, very frightening time. The subsequent documents relating to the history of D'Aoust is two years after the massacre, in 1691. William and his wife, Mary Magdalene, and saw happen survived birth their first child, Marie D'Aoust, Nae September 12 in Montreal. In testimony to the harshness of life of our colonists their lives, Marie D'Aoust, the first of D'Aoust born in this new world, died at the tender age of eight. A second child, a boy this time, William, is added to the family on October 30, 1694. The family moved to the northeast of the island of Mont-Real for a few years, while their next child, Augustine sees the day February 12, 1697 in Pointe-Aux-Trembles. In 1698, a peace treaty was signed with the Iroquois and many of the early settlers back around Lachine, whose family D'Aoust. Around 1700 and afterwards, William served as a captain in the militia for Lachine and LaPrairie the other side of the St. Lawrence River. Guillaume is also mentioned as living among the first families who cultivated wheat and it shares a community mill on the small island of Ile Perrot. Each family was known to have a large house of boisainsi a barn for animals. Most of the documents for the families of Ile Perrot are at the Parish of Ste-Anne de Bellevue Bout Island just across the Isle of Mount Real. It was a new parish with a new church, which included small settler communities in the entire southwestern tip of the island of Mont-Real, Fort Senneville Fort Rémy and several on opposite banks of the St. Lawrence River. The baptismal records for the youngest child in Bellevue indicate that William and Marie Madekeine lived within the territory of the new parish of Ste-Anne de Bellevue. In all, William and Mary Magdalene had eight children and records indicate they all lived in the Ile Perrot sector and at the southwest end of the island of Montreal for most of their lives. This area included Lachine, Ste-Anne de Bellevue at the End of the Island and Pointe Claire. In Collet report parishes in 1722, it enumerates William living in the parish of Ste-Anne de Bellevue Bout de L'Ile de Mont Réal; and William could sign his name on this report. Our Guillaume D'Aoust died on the eighth day of March 1729; and was buried nine of the parish of Ste-Anne de Bellevue Bout de L'IThe. The burial register indicates that he was aged eighty-four years, which gives us a birth year earlier than in 1645. His wife, Mary Magdalene our La Londe, survived more than thirty years before his own death and was buried on the third day of January 1761 at the age of eighty-nine. So this couple lived a long life despite the problems they had to face during their early years of marriage. He maried Marie Madeleine Angèle Lalonde # 40, married February 18, 1686 in Lachine, Quebec, Canada (6.8) divorced February 15, 1686 (sic), Saint-Anges, Lachine, Quebec, Canada (9), born in 1672 in Ste-Anne de Bellevue, Quebec, Canada (10), (daughter of Jean-Delalonde Lesperance # 242 and Marie Barbant- Barbary # 243), named in 1672 in Ste-Anne de Bellevue, Quebec, Canada; died January 2, 1761 in Ste-Anne de Bellevue, Quebec, Canada (10) buried: January 3, 1761 in Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue, Quebec, Canada (10).
