Biography

Protestant, son of Pierre Charron, master tanner, and Judith Martin.

Meaux, his birthplace was a very active city regarding Protestantism where hundreds of Protestants were massacred during the wars of religion.

Around 1615 the Quebec branch of Pierre Charron became a convert to Calvinism. Pierre Charron was therefore Calvinist.[1]

Occupation

Occupation: Maitre mégissier (master tanner)

He was a master Tanner like his father

Note: He never carried the name Ducharme (it is a mistake to Jetté). The name Nicolas is also a mistake, he gets called that on the marriage record of his son Nicolas (sic). [2]

Birth

Birth Date: 21 Oct 1635
Place: Meaux, Champagne, France[3]

Baptism

Baptism: Baptism in Meaux, France/ Champagne (Seine Et Marne), France
Date: 28 OCT 1635[4]

His date of birth and baptism were confirmed when he sold and/or gave 2 properties in Meaux in February 1661, where he presented his baptism, and where he stated he was about to undertake a voyage from which he was unsure whether or not he would return (document 2):

Document no 1 : Vente de la maison de la Couronne sise au Grand Marché de Meaux, par Pierre Charron à Jean Guerreau.

Meaux, 28 février 1661. En présence notamment de Jean Giroust, second époux de sa défunte mère Judith Martin, Pierre Charron vend, pour la somme de 105 livres toumois, payée comptant, sa part (le tiers en fait) d'une maison située au Grand Marché de Meaux, rue Cornillon, maison dont les autres propriétaires sont les héritiers de Gilles et Étienne Charron, ses oncles, frères de son père. Ainsi que ce contrat l'indique à la deuxième ligne, Pierre Charron est alors majeur, puisqu'il est âgé de plus de 25 ans, ce qu'il prouve en présentant un extrait de son registre baptistaire. Il est donc né avant le 28 février 1636.[5]

Document no 2: Donation d'une maison sise au Grand Marché de Meaux, par Pierre Charron à son cousin Nicolas Mansart.

Meaux, 9 avril 1661. Visiblement, Pierre Charron met de I'ordre à ses affaires. Moins de six semaines après la vente effectuée le 28 février, il donne à un parent, Nicolas Mansart, une autre maison également située au Grand Marché de Meaux, tout juste derrière l'église St-Martin. Le notaire qui rédige ce contrat est méticuleux: pour notre plus grand bénéfice, il précise (lignes 2 et 3) que le certificat baptistaire de Pierre Charron (sans doute le même que pour le contrat précédent) démontre qu'il est né le 21 octobre 1635, et qu'il fût baptisé le 28 octobre de la même année. Qui plus est, le notaire prend soin de nous informer (lignes 20 et 21) que Pierre Charron s'apprête à faire un voyage dont il n'est pas certain de revenir.[5]

Note that he signed both contracts. On the first contract, he sold his share of the house (1/3), the co-proprietors being his uncles Gilles and Étienne Charron. Transcription of the contracts is included in the source document.
