Jacques Desmarest et son épouse Marie Marthe Laporte sont tous deux cités défunts au mariage de leur fils Paul en 1681 en Nouvelle-France.

Paul Desmarest, fils de feu Jacques Desmarest et de défunte Marie Marthe Laporte, de la paroisse de St-Sauveur de la ville et archevêché de Paris, âgé de 25 ans, épousa Marie Tétreo, fille âgée de 18 ans de Louis Tétreo et de Marie Noëlle Landeau, le 14 octobre 1681 à Champlain.[1]


Détaché de/detached from Phebe du Rieu,

Aucune source ne prouve qu'elle était sa mère, la seule source avancée mettrait sa naissance en Angleterre, très peu probable pour l'époque. Voir discussion G2G.

No source proves she was his mother, the only source brought forward would have put his birth in England, highly improbable for the time. See G2G discussion linked above.

From Vol. 1 of The Demarest Family, compiled under the auspices of the Demarest Family Association, Hackensack, NJ, Voorhis D. Demarest, President and published in 1964. Full text of the publication can be found here:

This Bio compiled by William DeMorrow, 8th great grandson of Jacques V. This edit is on 27 Sep 2020 and is a work in progress.

There are a lot of Jaques in this family so it's hard to keep them from stumbling into each other. This Jaques I have named Jacques des Marets V. Some researchers have him being born in France which means his father, Francois, who was born in Norfolk, England, would have returned to France sometime between 1610 and 1620. The Edict of Nantes, which ended the civil war with the Huguenots and restored their civil rights, was signed in 1598. The peace lasted only until 1643 when King Louis XIV ascended the French throne and the persecution began again. Right now I don't believe Francois would have returned to France. I am working on finding some evidence of Jacques V birthplace.

Background on Jacques IV's Grand Father from page XVI of the source:

Francois de Marets, or de Mares, as his name appears, was born about the year 1555. At Norwich he was a lieutenant of the Walloon Militia, a body to which the colonists were entitled. He probably lived the last years of his life at London, where most of his children are found registered in the French Church. Francois de Mares married twice. His first wife, Elisabeth Herbecq, died between 1601 and 1604. On December 24, 1604, he remarried at Norwich with Phebe du Rieu. Of the first marriage there were five, of the second, six children. Only the last child of the first and all the children of the second marriage were baptized in the Walloon Church of Norwich.

On September 10, 1605, Francois de Mares transferred for himself and for his minor children, named Jacques, Jean, Elisabeth, Anna and Esther, represented by their guardians, Nicolas de Mares and Philip Carlier, to Jean de Mares, son of Nicolas, rsiding in the Land of Cambray, the fief of Cauroit, near Cambray, inherited by him from his father, Jacques de Mares, in 1604. Witnesses to this transaction were Nicolas de Mares and Louis de Mares, brothers. (editors note: Persecution of Huguenots in France was severe at the time. Huguenots could not own property. This transfer was to a relative who was catholic and could own the property. This looks like an attempt to preserve his inheritance)

The children of Francois de Mares were: 1. Jacques, born about 1590 (Note: This is our Jaques IV) 2. Jean, born about 1592 3. Elisabeth, born about 1598 4. Anna, born about 1598 5. Esther, born at Norwich and baptized there, May 24, 1600

Note: I'm still digging, hoping for more intel on Jaques life after fleeing France.
