Biography

Antoine Desrosiers, a lot has been written about him in books and especially on the Internet and we have to separate facts from fiction. On August the 8th, 1691, he passed away at his home in Champlain Québec at the age of 90 years old(*1). An inventory listed these tomes: some works on law and history, the “Coutume de Paris” in two volumes, the “Ordinances Civile”, and six small books by various authors. In 1668 became a colonist of Champlain, he was named fiscal manager of the new “seigneurie” and a trustee and a “seigneurial judge”. (*2) Witnessed by Michel Leneuf Sieur Duhérisson, Antoine married Anne Duhérisson on August 6th, 1648 in Trois-Riviere, Québec, they had eight children.(*3) The first mention of Antoine Desrosiers in Nouvelle France was on July 10th, 1642 were Antoine's name appeared in the baptismal book at Sillery, Québec as godfather for Antoine Abakouakich(*4)

Antoine Desrosiers passed away at the age of ninety which means he was born about 1601 and on his marriage contract mentions that he was from Renaison, France but the church registry in Renaison only start in 1615, he might have live there but he was actually born in Roanne, August 4th 1600 12km from Renaison (*5)

It said that Antoine Desrosiers had a heart and admired justice and detested chicanery and I am proud that he is part of my ancestors.

Footnotes

Since Antoine Desrosiers didn’t specify his parents name and only that he came from Renaison, France, I’m going by his date of death that he was 90 years old and the Registry in Renaison only started their Registration in 1615 which doesn’t make sense that he was born there but if you look nearby there if a village called Roanne just 12km from Renaison. These handwritten documents are very hard to read since they were written with a feather and could be misinterpreted, looking at the birth I notice that the mother was not mention so his mother I'm using the marriage of Benoit, I leave it up to you if you decide if I’m wrong.
