Biography

(version française ci-dessus)

Guyon Chiasson called Lavallée was born around 1641[1][2], possibly 1638[3][4] in La Rochelle, France. He was the son of Pierre Chiasson and Marie Peroche[1]. Variations in Guyon's first name were Dion or Denis, and his last name was Giasson.[3] or Giason.[2] One source identifies his parish as St-Sauveur-d'Aunis, where his sister was baptised.[4]

Guyon had two wives. He married the first in Acadia.[1] Around 1666 he wed Jeanne Bernard, daughter of Unknown Bernard[5] and Andrée Guyon[3]. He first settled in Port Royal (Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, Canada).[3] Then between June 1668 and October 1674, the family lived in Mouchecoudabouet[3] (Musquodoboit Harbour, NS near Halifax).[9]

Between around 1667 and 1680, the couple had eight children: Gabriel (dit Pierre), Françoise (dit Lavallée), Sébastien, child unknown, Jean, Michel, Marie, and Anne (dit Lavallée).[3]

By 1682, the family had moved to Beaubassin.[6][8]

Around 1683 Guyon married Marie-Madeleine Martin, daughter of Pierre Martin and Joachine Lafleur. The marriage took place on the 7th October 1683 in Quebec (City), where Marie-Madeleine resided. However, Guyon was identified as a resident of Beaubassin[1]. Between 1684 and 1993, the couple had four girls at Beaubassin: Angelique, Geneviève, Marie-Madeleine, and Anne.[3]

By 1686 the family farm was prosperous. They had 40 arpents[8] of cultivated land, 20 cattle, 12 sheep, and 15 hogs.

Guyond died before the 1693 Census, leaving his widow and younger children at Beaubassin.[3]

thanks for quick reply Jacqueline. I also notice that the Acadian Project WikiTree is one of the profile managers. Tagged Acadian.

Re question from Denise Chiasson, it looks like someone attempted to put him in the Quebecois project but the template has an error so not showing up. From the bio, it looks like he did emigrate to Port-Royal, so he would qualify for the Acadia Project. Just add him if you wish and remove the Quebecois attempt.

Updated to say that it seems to now be determined that there were only two marriages, in large part thanks to Stephen White's Dictionnaire Généalogique des Familles Acadiennes by Stephen White. It is explained well in David L. Chiasson's website

= I'm not sure of protocol for sorting things like this out...

You only have two wives listed? Bona Arsenault shows Guyon having three wives:

  • around 1666 to Jeanne Bernard (mother of Gabriel & Marie 1667, Jean & Francoise 1668, Sébastien 1670 and Michel 1675.
  • around 1677 to Marie Béliveau (Antoine et Andrée Guyon) from Port-Royal - one child, Anne 1680
  • Oct 7, 1683 to Marie Madeleine Martin (Pierre et Jacobine Lafleur), de Sillery. Mother of Angélique and Marguerite 1684, Geneviève 1685, Marie 1691, Anne 1692.

Also, there are two Anne's on this list; I'm not sure which one is the orphan Anne le Cadet would be from the third marriage ("cadet" means "younger").
