From Fichier Origine of Michel Leneuf

LENEUF DU HÉRISSON, Michel
Statut: Célibataire
Date de naissance: Vers 1601
Lieu d'origine: Caen (Temple protestant) (Calvados) 14118
Parents: Mathieu LENEUF et Jeanne Lemarchand
Première mention au pays: 1636
Occupation à l'arrivée: Migrant arrivé avec sa mère
Remarques: Sa fille Anne Leneuf épouse Antoine Desrosiers à Trois-Rivières, par cm du 24-11-1647 greffe Boujonnier ; elle est dite née hors-union, faute de preuve du mariage de son père. [8]

To summarize and translate above data, Michel was son of Mathieu and Jeanne Lemarchand, and arrived in the colony in 1636 with his mother (and siblings). His daughter Anne Leneuf married Antoine Desrosiers at Trois-Rivières, by marriage contract of 24 Nov 1647, notary Boujonnier; she is said to be illegitimate, for lack of proof of her father marrying.

Research notes

FLOUR LA BOUJONNIER:

Le 10 février 1649, Flour La Boujonnier signe une pièce officielle comme secrétaire du gouverneur d’Ailleboust. Il était probablement arrivé dans le pays l'année précédente avec M. d’Ailleboust. Flour La Boujonnier fut le premier tabellion ou notaire des Trois-Rivières. Son premier acte est du 19 juin 1650. Il fut tué par les Iroquois le 18 août 1652. Les quelques actes reçus par Flour La Boujonnier sont disparus.[9] The above surmises that Flour la Boujonnier had arrived in 1648, but a search in Drouin collection finds him being godfather to a native child on 11 Aug 1647 in Trois-Rivières. Any actual contracts he may have done have reportedly not survived, so the marriage contract cited above cannot be verified visually. Although there must be some mention of it elsewhere for its date etc to be known about.

Le contrat de mariage du pionnier est cité dans un acte du 15-08-1691 greffe Séverin Ameau, à Trois-Rivières.[10]

From Antoine Desrosiers's fichier origine, we learn that his marriage contract with Anne Leneuf du Hérisson is cited in an act of 15 Aug 1691 of Notary Séverin Ameau in Trois-Rivières.


There is another woman named Marie Anne Leneuf, who is born around 1632 in Thury-Harcourt (daughter of Jacques and Marguerite Legardeur) That is the woman who would be named de la Poterie, since that was Jacques' title. Ours gets named du Hérisson or Leneuf only. The two may have been confused together. The 2 marriages run concurrently, with children born to both couples in same time period, so she is definitely a different woman. (verified in Drouin collection)

Marie Anne Leneuf, fille de Jacques, sieur de la Poterie et Marguerite Legardeur de Tilly, mariée à René Robineau, sieur de Bécancour et Portneuf, 21 Oct 1652 contrat Séverin Ameau Trois Rivières, née vers 1632 Thury-Harcourt (Calvados) première mention 1636 (source: Fichier Origine on the family)


Quand Michel Le Neuf meurt le 26 octobre 1672 à Trois-Rivières, il est âgé d’environ soixante et onze ans. Il est toujours célibataire ou veuf, Il ne s’est jamais marié en Nouvelle-France. Il laisse une fille Anne, notre ancêtre, selon toute probabilité une enfant illégitime. Le lien paternel est reconnu dans son contrat de mariage avec Antoine Desrosiers en 1647. Elle dispose d’une dot de 500 livres. Cette somme est importante, mais nettement inférieure à la somme que la sœur de Michel, Marie avait reçu en 1636 à son mariage avec Jean Godefroy, sieur de Lintot (1 800 livres).[11]


Les documents nous renseignent bien peu sur sa vie privée. À son arrivée en Nouvelle-France, il était célibataire, ou veuf, car il emmenait une fillette de quatre ans, toujours nommée Anne Du Hérisson, et non Anne Leneuf Du Hérisson. Il est possible, comme on l’a prétendu, qu’elle ait été sa fille naturelle. Aucune précision n’est donnée dans le contrat de mariage de cette jeune fille avec Antoine Desrosiers, le 24 novembre 1647.[12]

"The documents provide us with very little information about his private life. When he arrived in New France he was single or a widower, for he brought out with him a little girl of four who still bore the name Anne Du Hérisson and not Anne Leneuf Du Hérisson. It is possible, as has been claimed, that she was his illegitimate daughter. No precise information is given in this young woman’s marriage contract with Antoine Desrosiers dated 24 Nov. 1647." [13] (NOTE: Elle est nommée Anne Leneuf dans au moins 2 documents, des baptêmes des ses enfants/she gets named Anne Leneuf on at least 2 documents, baptisms of her children ref Coll. Drouin)

MICHEL LeNEUF du HÉRISSON
His only child and daughter, Anne born 1632 in the bourg of Thierry in Caen, Normandy married Antoine DesROSIERS in 1649 is my direct ancestor.
Antoine Desrosiers and Anne duHérisson had eight children. Sons Jean born 1657 and Antoine born 1664, were members of an association created in 1683 between nine men from Champlain for the purpose of fur trading. The composition of these associates is noteworthy in that it concentrated the power of three influential families in the region: Dandonneau (Huguenot fur-trading merchants), Chorel and Aubuchon. Jean's wife was Françoise Dandonneau. The association dissolved after the summer of 1688 when Jacques Babie, merchant and principal investor, died.
All the sons were involved in the business of procuring and selling furs. Son, Michel dit Desilets born 1652 married Thomasse Artault the daughter of an Algonquin and a fur trader, son Jean dit LeFrenière married Françoise Dandonneau as mentioned above, Antoine dit DuTremble was part of the syndicate mentioned above and received a passport in 1689 to trade in the west. The west, in this case, was probably no further than the Great Lakes. To control the furtrading and collect appropriate taxes, the French government issued passports (permits), a form of license. They were difficult to acquire since in many years, only 25 were issued. To conduct fur trading or to travel west withouta passport was considered illegal and subject to punishment, most often fines or the confiscation of furs.
Son, Pierre dit Dargy born around 1667 married Marguerite AUBUCHON whose uncle was active in the trade.
Anne LeNeuf duHérisson died in Champlain in October 1711 at the age of 79.

What is this obsession with Anne Leneuf? A while back I mention the name Michel Leneuf to a French Quebequer friend of mine and he told me that Ici-Radio-Canada had made a film on him, a feisty hot-tempered individual accompanied with a black man in the back woods of Nouvelle-France. There is no record that he ever married or had children, only that he was a judge at Trois-Riviere.

There is an article on Ancestry, about Michel Le Neuf du Herrison's and Anne's arrival and life in Canada. one portion states. "Was Michel married? If so we know nothing about his wife. We know he came to Canada with an infant of about 4 years. by the name of Anne. Fr. Godbout expresses the idea that she was perhaps "the fruit of a misalliance"

It also states that the Leneuf family was of the nobility. A fact that they had to prove in a judgement of the Kings Council on Sept 1, 1667. This was recognized and the judgement was registered by the Sovereign Council, Sept 23, 1675.

OK cousins, we need to eliminate her purported mother, who was in fact her grandmother. The grandmother arrived with her children and any spouses and their children in 1636. Image 3 above is of her grandfather's family, not her father's. The Anne named in that family was not their daughter. Abbé Tanguay erred. Her mother is unknown. Have gone through various sources in both French and English on her, and they all agree her mother is unknown. Let me know your comments please.

Duhérisson-3 and Leneuf du Hérrison-1 are not ready to be merged because: Michel le Neuf du Hérisson (Le Neuf du Hérisson-1) did not marry and did not have any children, he was only present at the wedding and gave a dowry to her, too many managers on WikiTree only copy and plagiarize information from other Genealogy sites and none of them produced the actual act of marriage on November 24, 1647 in Trois-Rivieres, Canada so until then an Unmerged Match will remain

Genealogy of Canada has some very different information:

Mathieu LeNeuf (b 1575) married Jeanne Lemarchand (b 1575)

Their children are Michel (1600) , Jacques (1604), Madeleine (1605) and Marie (1611).

Michel is the Father of Anne LeNeuf ( b 1631)not her husband.

It is unknown whether Anne's mother died before her passage to Canada or that Anne might be an illegitimate child. Michel never married again.
