Does anyone have a Rene Fontaine in their tree?

+4 votes

Rene Fontaine born approximately 1682 or 1686.

Worked for the France Marine Bureau, as Secretary to the Last New France Govenor.

Disappeared after 1710 French  defeat with the British.

Could have gone back to France or left off at Cape Brition, or elsewhere?

 He had a son born 1707 called Louis dit Bilneau Fontaine.

One record states that he was baptised under his mother's maiden name :Isabelle/Elizabeth Corporon.

Could be an illegitimate child?

Never heard of again?

Lived in Port Royal,N.S.Canada

I have hit a brick wall on locating his whereabouts. ( tried for 15 years!)

Any leads?would help.

I have posted on numerous Genealogy sites and Fourms.

This is not the Rene Fontaine born 1682 or 1686.

If you can read French:


Rene and Elisabeth Isabelle Corporon did not marry. Louis was born on August 19, 1707 and baptized on September 11 as Louis Corporon. The father is not named, but it is known that his father is Rene. In October 1710, when Port-Royal is taken, Rene Fontaine is sent back to France. Louis's wedding record in 1730 does indicate Rene as his father.
