Biography

Simon Drouillard was born on 10 Nov 1668, baptized on the 28th in Marennes (St-Pierre)[1], son of Jean Drouillard and Anne Cheuron. His godfather was Simon Chaudard, sieur de St-Maurice; his godmother, the "honest woman" Marie Dumas.[2].

The first mention of him found in records was in 1698, he was a soldier in a marine detachment of troops, St-Martin company.

Simon married twice and fathered 20 children only one of whom lived to adulthood. He, his son Jean, and Jean's five sons are the ancestors of all the Drouillards in the Ontario region of Canada.

Marriage 1: Simon Drouillard, son of Jean Drouillard and Anne Chevrau (or Cheurau), of the parish of Marennes, Saintes diocese, married Marguerite Feret, daughter of Pierre Ferret and Anne Lannon, on 25 Nov 1698 in Québec (Notre-Dame)[3]. Named as present were Benoit Ferret, René Lanseleur, brother and brother-in-law of the bride, Thomas Ferret and Jean E. Dubreuil, officiating priest François Dupré. Simon, Benoit, Jean and another (illegible signature) signed the record, the bride is stated not to be able to.

7 baptisms found for this marriage, 4 funerals, only one marriage for the children, that of Jean Baptiste (named Jean only on baptism) Drouillard dit Argencourt to Élisabeth Rapin on 5 Feb 1731 in Lachine (Sts-Anges)[4]


Simon came to new France as a soldier with Lestringant de Saint-Martin and was in the campaign against the Iroquois below Montreal. He married at Quebec November 25, 1698, Marguerite Ferret, the eleventh of thirteen children of Pierre Ferret and Marie Lasnon. Simon and Marguerite had one child baptized at Montréal (ND), one at Repentigny, three more children were baptized at St-François-de-Sales, Île-Jésus. The family left their farm around 1707 and moved to Québec City where two more children were born. Marguerite died in 1711 at the age of thirty[4].

Simon was listed as a "soldat de la Mothe" (with Cadillac).

He was a sublieutenant at the time of his second marriage on 24 November 1712 at Pointe-de-Lévy (Lauzon) to Anne Cadoret, the daughter of Georges Cadoret and Barbe Boucher[5]. Simon and Anne had eleven children but the years from 1718 to 1736 held much sadness for them. All of the children died between the ages of one and nine years with the exception of Marie Catherine who married Charles Carrier.[4]

The 1716 census of Québec city shows the family as follows (enf de 2 lits means children of 2 marriages):
