Boulanger de métier
he is first married to Catherine (Housse/Ousse/Vanhousan/Vanhussa/Austenne/Vanhoosen/Vanhsasen... impossible to determine which) sometime before February 1808. The couple have 6 known children:
1- Élizabeth, born 25 october 1808 baptized on 29 december 1810 in Terrebonne; she marries Henri Michaud, widower of Geneviève Trudel, on 6 Feb 1826 in Ste-Élisabeth (Seigneurie Dautray)
2- Marie Charlotte, born 28 december 1810 baptized on 29 december 1810 in Terrebonne
3- Marie Adélaïde, born 15 august 1812 in Terrebonne; she marries Louis Maugin, son of Joseph Maugin and Marie Louise Rivet, on 7 Oct 1834 in St-Paul-de-Lavaltrie
4- Pierre Nicolas, born 5 december 1814 in Terrebonne
5- Anne, born 16 june 1817, baptized in Ste-Élisabeth (Seigneurie d'Autray)
6- Caroline after 1815, as minor when she marries in 1836; She marries Paul Jetté, son of Paul Jetté and Angélique Mandeville on January 11 1836 in St-Paul-de-Lavaltrie.
No record of date of marriage or Catherine's decease has been found yet.
In October 1834 when their daughter Adélaïde gets married, Charles is listed as living in Ste-Mélanie, QC, as also when Caroline gets married in 1836
Charles remarried with Catherine Savoie on 19 Feb 1821 in Ste-Élisabeth (Seigneurie Dautray)
Children from this marriage:
When his son Charles (2nd wife) gets married in 1845, he is listed as residing in St-Ambroise-de-Kildare
1851 census shows him residing in the sub-district of St-Patrice-de-Rawdon, which is near St-Ambroise. He was listed as a baker, which is known to have been his occupation.
actual 1851 census record has a notation in residence for him résidence si elle est hors des limites (residence if outside the limits), which gives St-Alphonse on it.
he is listed alone with no family, listed profession being baker. No trace of his possible 3rd wife below found after the birth of the last child.
He is absent from 1861 census
There is a Charles Boileau, widower, who marries a Charlotte Maréchal Gagné on 9 Aug 1833 in Berthier in the protestant church there. Both are listed as residents of the seigniory of d'Aillebout. Charles would logically have remarried, he had minor children from his second wife, who died in 1831. But on the baptisms of 3 children he is listed as cultivateur rather than baker, on baptism of François is listed as journalier,
It would appear this is another Charles Boileau, where that one came from is unknown. There is an Élisabeth Boileau listed as being aunt of one of the children here, the only Élisabeth found in the family would have been half-sister rather than aunt. Unless the listing is erroneous and she was indeed half-sister. Charles' 2nd wife's funeral lists him as cultivateur de Kildare.
bug on the database did not permit me to view actual record.
they have the following children:
They are listed as residents of St-Alphonse-Rodriguez (Joliette), which is somewhat north of Ste-Mélanie, in the same general area as Rawdon (sub-district per census)
According to the records of the Church of England parish at Berthier-en-Haut, Quebec, Sarah Boileau and my ancestor, Orrimill Gibbs, then a widower, both of the Seignory of d'Aillebout, were married on January 29, 1833. Orrimill was a witness, in August of the same year, to the marriage of Charles Boileau, widower, to Marechal [?] Charlotte Gagne. https://www.genealogy.com/forum/surnames/topics/boileau/75/ other research
