Philippe Amiot (Amyot) dit Villeneuve (1602-1639) (9th great-grandfather) son of Georges Elie Amyot (1570-1620) and Louise Chichon (1580-1610) Birth 1602 • Soissons, Aisne, Picardie, France Death 26 AUG 1639 • Québec, Quebec, Canada Marriage 1625 to Anne Convent (1605-1675) • 1636, Coureur de bois near Trois-Rivières.
Philippe arrived in Canada in the summer of 1635. He was accompanied by his wife, Anne Convent, and two sons, Mathieu and Jean. In 1636, another son, Charles was born at Québec.
There is some evidence to suggest Philippe was a Coureur-de-Bois. Three years after his arrival in New France, Philippe Amiot died 26 Sep 1639, in Québec. However, through his sons, Mathieu and Charles, he established a long line of descendants which today number in the thousands.
Anne Convent (1605-1675), the daughter of Guillaume Convent & Antoinette De Longral, was born about 1604 in L'Estrée, France. Her second marriage on 26 September 1639 was to Jacques Maheu in Québec. Her third husband was Etienne Blanchon Larose. She died on Christmas Day and was buried on 26 December 1675 in Québec.

More from: Technological Adaptation on the Frontier: An Examination of Blacksmithing at Fort Michilimackinac, 1715-1781, by Amy S. Roache-Fedchenko, Syracuse University
An inventory of Amiot’s work from the time he worked for the French military includes the repair or furnishing of screws, sight beads, sights, cocks, ramrod guides, face plates, a bolt, springs, frizzens and tempering, sears, tumblers, a shoulder strap, and the assembly of fusils; all gun parts or gun related work (Amiot 1747 a, 1747b).
Other, non-gun related items listed within these work inventories includes picks, axes, tomahawks, daggers, swords, and darts (arrow points) (Amiot 1747 a, 1747b).
These objects indicate that the blacksmith may have been completing work for military personnel and for the purposes of trade relations between the French military and Native American groups. According to Amiot’s 1747 inventory he was repairing traps and trap parts (Amiot 1747). It is not known for whom Amiot made the repairs, although it is likely that traps were being repaired for traders and Native Americans.
Hoes were documented to have been repaired at the site and show up on French trader’s inventory lists as pioches (LeFeuure 1746; Amiot 1774).
Strike-a-lites, or firesteels, as referred to in historic documents, was another type of object that was documented to have been produced by the blacksmith at Fort Michilimackinac (Amiot 1774).
