Please enjoy this short story of the Berthiaume Family!!

Short Story of the Berthiaume Famly From: The Blessed Sacrament Father's Gooding Ave., Leicester, England LE3-1JS June, 1968

THE NAME: The name in France was and still is spelt Bertheaume, with an "e". The 3rd or 4th Generation in Canada began spelling it Berthiaume. Today in the United States and Canada the spelling is mostly Berthiaume. Today in the United States, we also find the following changes; Berttro, Brigham. The name seems to be of Saxton origin. Thus, Berht or (Berth) meaning Brilliant and Helm meaning helmet. This would suggest that the first man to whom was giving, Berhthelm, was either; 1.) a Saxon solider (with a brilliant helmet) in the service of France as a mercenary; or that he was; 2.) one of the Northmen ( Normands) from Scandinavia, who invaded the North of France in the 9th century, and stayed there. BAS-POITOU; The Bertheaume family is found in Bas-Poitou at the beginging of the 15th century. Some say that it originated there. In 1600 the family separated into many branches. One "branch" went to Normandy. A "twig" of this branch migrated to Canada. His name was Jacques, son of Pierre Bertheaume and Jacqueline Brion. He was born in 1632 in the Parish of St Benin, Diocese of Bayeux, Calvados, Normandy, France. CANADA: Jacques Bertheaume came to Canada abt the yr 1663, docking at Quebec City. He seems to have been a skillful fisherman. He was also a lumberjack and a maker of charcoal, besides being a farmer. At the census of 1666 he is called "habit-ant", which indicates that he already was a landowner. By the time of his death he was one of the richest landowners of Quebec Region. He owned what is today the City of Ste. Foye and more besides. The parish church and cemetery of Ste. Foye are on part of his land. It extended on the south towards the vallage of Sillery and the famous 'Pont de Quebec'; on the North it descended behind the city up to the present Railroad tracks of the Canaian Pacific. Near the church "Notre-Dame de Foy", opposite the Rectory is a street called "Avenue Jacques Bertheaume". Presumably, this was the road leading to the home of Jacques. After living in Canada some 44 yrs., he died at Ste Foye on July 9 1707. This can be verified in the Parish Records. Jacques had also lived in nearby village of Cap Rouge.... where Jacques Cartier, The Great Explorer had hibernated in 1541-1542. Jacques contracted marriage on Nov. 5th, 1667 in Quebec to Catherine Bohomme. She was only 12 yrs, 1 month and 15 days old at the time. The actual marriage must had taken place in 1670. Their first child was born in 1671. They had 7 children. All Bertheaume's in Canada and the USA descend from Jacques. His descendants to this day, a span of over 300 yrs. number in the tens of thousands to this day. Our Bertheaume line lived in Canada almost 200 yrs. They inhabited mostly the towns and villages between Quebec and Montreal, along the beautiful and majestic St. Lawrence River: Namely, Cap Rouge, Lorette, Yamachilche, Louiseville and Pointe du Lac. The most of our Canadian ancestors were farmers. UNITED STATES: The children of Augustin II (Generation VII A), after their father's death, came to the US with their Uncle Louis-Joseph and his children ( Generation VII B). They settled in Massachusetts.... all of them within 20 miles from Worcester. The yrs seems to be between 1845 and 1847. The descendants of these 12 pioneers, ( 7 men and 5 woman) are legions. The purpose of this study is to give and outline of the descendants of the 12 first "American" ancestors; Joseph A, Domitilda, Augustin III, Severe; and Louise (m. Collum), Marguerite (m. Berthiaume), Antonie, Louis , Zoe (m. Morway), Moise and Barbara (M. Barill). Dommitilda (M. Jos Moussotte). This is what was sent to me. Still a lot work has to be done.

Hi Alice,

Thanks for all your work on WikiTree. I noticed that you are adding profiles for the pre-1700 ancestors you have found in your search. Congratulations on getting back that far!

Since you are now back in the time period where many people can be descended from those ancestors, we need more details in your source area. As collaborative genealogists, we need to use reliable sources to provide evidence for the profiles. That lets us work together to create the most accurate profiles

The Sources - Examples section more fully explains what information needs to be included in source citations for pre-1700 profiles and the Pre-1700 Profile FAQ explains more about reliable soruces.

We're looking for reliable sources to add to the various lists. Would your source be a good addition?

Hi Alice,

The Willcoxson surname appeared on other information that had been previously introduced to me. I missed a step on how to correct that information. I've updated the profile and think its ready to be merged. Thank you for all of your great work.

Thank you for the merge of Marie Fontaine. However, I changed back her name to remove the middle name. At that time, the fr. canadians used both names as a first name (See the Quebecois project for more info).

Thanks for the quick merge. I have no idea why her name didn't pop up when I went to add in Tardif's parents. His father didn't, either.

Hi Alice: The Ontario Project is identifying Ontario politicians and adding information and categories to their profiles, which is why I've been working on the profile you manage for Andrew Monteith. If you have any questions, please drop me a line. Thanks!

Thanks for the merge! We're eleventh cousins now. Let's see how much closer we can get as we consolidate profiles!

Hi Alice! I'm finding lots of duplicate profiles in France and Quebec. Could you help me search for them and propose the merges? I don't want to just clobber you with dozens of emails.

We don't put the dit names as part of the Last Name at Birth, so you wouldn't have found them at creation time with the longer last names. When you're creating more French language profiles, you can search for the first several characters with a wildcard, such as Boucher*

I know you'll fit more closely into our family tree once we merge the duplicates back into a single profile for each ancestor. It will be great to see your DNA test appearing on even more ancestor and cousin profiles. Thanks for your help!
