Tanguay's Dictionnaire généalogique des familles canadiennes (Vol. I, p. 243) states that Marie Françoise Forget, who married Maurice Pasquier/Pasquet, was the daughter of immigrants Nicolas Forget/Froget dit Despatis & Madeleine Martin, but it doesn't show any baptism date, which suggests uncertainty.
Généalogie Québec says she was the daughter of Jacques Forget & Renée Guillocheau, but their footnoted sources for this claim refer only to emails from individuals and the text of the emails isn't provided. Confusingly, the same QC profile says she was peut-être (maybe) daughter of Nicolas & Madeleine.
Here on WikiTree, her parents are Jacques & Renée, but the same confusing text appears in her profile: she was daughter of Jacques & Renée and she was "maybe" daughter of Nicolas & Madeleine.
It looks like there's a marriage record of Françoise & Maurice, 29 Jul 1659 in Poitiers - it's mentioned in various profiles with Maurice's parents and both parties' ages, and one hopes that the parish record would also name Françoise's parents, but I haven't seen a specific citation or image of the original.
A possible small clue: Jacques & Renée are said to be from Poitiers, while Nicolas & Madeleine are said to be from Alençon, and those places are not particularly near each other. So if the 1659 marriage took place in Poitiers, that's at least circumstantial support for Jacques & Renée as parents.
A conflicting small clue: the QC profile says she was also known as "dite Despaties", which was Nicolas' dit-name and not Jacques'. But the footnoted source for this claim refers only to an email from an individual.
I was wondering whether LeBoeuf's Complément to Tanguay might have updated information about Françoise's origins, but it's only available in library hard copy and libraries are closed at the moment. I suspect if LeBoeuf had it we'd be seeing it with better sourcing, but it's worth a try.
Does anyone have primary sourced (not Google, not Nos Origines, not other people's trees) information about the parents of Françoise?
Thank you anonymous! Yes, the sites say a marriage contract notarized by Berthonneau and they don't provide the name of the parish. Poitiers has a bunch of parishes.
The internet also thinks that Françoise's mother Renée Guillocheau remarried Maurice's father Émery/Méry Pasquet/Pasquier, also in 1659, referencing a marriage contract also notarized by Berthonneau. Aha! On NosOrigines for this couple, it says the information came from Jetté's Dictionnaire généalogique des familles du Québec. That book seems to be hard copy only, too.
On Geneanet, there's a text-only index of Poitiers marriage contracts, and both of the above contracts are in it - the children and the parents - on the same date. It doesn't say what the primary source for the index is, though.
Thank you Doug! Here on WikiTree, there's a link to an image of a 1666 baptism record for Jeanne Pasquet, daughter of Maurice & Françoise Forget, at St-Jean-Baptiste parish in Poitiers. I was able to find the same record in the microfilm archives on FamilySearch. It says her parents live in the parish of St-Hilaire-entre-les-Églises.
St-Jean-Baptiste images for 1659-1661 are missing. St-Hilaire-entre-les-Églises images don't start until 1668.
Thank you Danielle! Here is the 1663 baptism record for Marguerite, daughter of Maurice & Françoise Forget, at St-Porchaire parish in Poitiers.
The search continues!
Merci à tous!
