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]
