Philippe Amiot migrated from France to New France.
He was born in Picardie around 1600. In around 1625 he got married in Brécy (St-Michel) (Aisne) in Soissonais with Anne Couvent the daughter of Guillaume Couvent and Antoinette de Longueval . We don't know much about the life of Philippe and Anne Couvent in France . We have found an act of sale from Antoine Courand notary . In this act of sale of the Notary Courand 20th january 1626 , we find out that Philippe Amyot bought the house of Antoinette Longueval in Estrée . Must have been a big house . According to the act , the house had 14 rooms and 32 acres of land. (32 arpents de terre )
In the spring of 1635 Philippe Amyot and his wife, their two sons , Mathieu and Jean, boarded a ship in Dieppe destination New France .In the beginning of the summer they arrived in Kébec. It was during the time of M.Champlain. I was not there , but I presume that M.Champlain was on the roads whit his straw hat , his whip and his wagon and his pair of bulls to greet these new arrivals , the minute they arrived .In those days it's was not often that a contingent of new arrivals landed . Usually it occurred only once a year .
What did philippe Amyot do in Kébec ? We don't know .When he died we still don't know ? However its certain that he died in the year 1639 . The burial act was not registered in the record of Quebec .
Certain allege that he died by drowning , and because his body was never found , they never registered his death . Other presumed that they just simply forgot to re-enter his burial act when they reconstructed the parish register after the fire in the chapel Notre-Dame de la Recouvrance in 1640 .

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.
