(Template:Migrating Ancestor)



Francois was born around 1621.[1]

Many people say that Francois was the illegitimate son of Tomaso Francesco, but this has not been proven or disproven. It is most likely the wishful thinking of researchers who want to find a royal connection.

He probably came to Acadia in the 1640s.

Francois married Catherine Lejeune around 1652 in Port Royal.[2]

"Né en France vers 1621, François Savoie est arrivé en Acadie avant 1651, date où il s'est marié à Catherine Lejeune. Neuf enfants sont issus de leur mariage, dont Germain, né vers 1654, qui épousa vers 1678 Marie Breau, fille de Vincent Breau et de Marie Bourque"[3]
