The name in the summary is Marie-Therese Duquet, but I see Françoise in the actual entry. Can someone with Drouin access verify please.

Best answer

Dawn, in the FamilySearch image, I'm reading it as Marie Therese at the end of the second row of her baptism text. I would transcribe it like this:

Le dix-neuvieme jour du mois d'avril de l'an mil six cent quatre vingt dix a été baptisé par moy françois dupré curé du quebec--marie therese née aujourdhuy fille du jean duquet dit desrochers et catherine ursulle arniot...

The 19th day of the month of April of the year 1690 was baptised by me François Dupré parish priest of Québec, Marie Therese born today, daughter of Jean Duquet called Desrochers and Catherine Ursule Arniot...

We should get confirmation from a real French speaker though - I just play one on TV. : )

"Québec, registres paroissiaux catholiques, 1621-1979," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-1942-28005-32725-79?cc=1321742 : accessed 7 April 2016), Québec > Notre-Dame-de-Québec > Baptêmes, mariages, sépultures 1679-1692 > image 463 of 490; nos paroisses de Église Catholique, Quebec (Catholic Church parishes, Quebec).

Interesting. That is not the same image as the Genealogiequebec image, though it looks to be the same handwriting, just a neater version. The image at genealogiequebec has the signatures on it. Now that I see both side by side, I can pick out her name, and yes, I see that the François is the name of the priest.

Thank you, that helps.
Karen, thank you very much for taking the time and energy to help Dawn with this... very generous.  Have a nice day :)
