    BERTRAND
    1. Clément Bertrand & Huguette Lambelot.
    Explanatory Note [by] P. Gallant
    Some have claimed that this Clément was the father of Claude, the husband of Catherine Pitre. Nothing permits such an affirmation. The 1671 census states clearly that Clément had no children. It must be noted that even when they were married the children are listed with their parents in this census.

    Note de P. Gallant
    D'aucuns prétendent que ce Clément est le père de Claude, époux de Catherine Pitre; rien ne permet de l'affirmer. Le recensement de 1671 dit bien que Clément n'a pas d'enfant. Il faut remarquer que dans ce recensement, même s'ils sont mariés, les enfants sont mentionnés avec leurs parents.
