Jeanne Perrin was born on May 26, 1615, in La Rochelle, Aunis, France. She was baptized in the protestant temple there (St-Yon temple) on 31 May, daughter of David Perrin and of Jeanne Daniau[1]

She was married around 1638 in La Rochelle with Pierre Duteau.

She was hired on contract by Pierre Denys de La Ronde in La Rochelle, contract dated 16 Apr 1658 before notary Teuleron, to go work for Jacques Le Neuf.

Elle s’engage avec sa fille cadette Madeleine à Pierre Denys de La Ronde, le 16 avril 1658, pour aller travailler à Québec au service de Jacques Leneuf de La Porterie durant cinq ans, à titre de servante, à raison de 50 livres pour les deux. Ne signe pas. Elle quitte La Rochelle, à la mi-mai, à bord du navire Le Prince Guillaume et arrive à Québec le 11 juillet suivant.[2][3]

She came to the colony aboard the ship Pierre Guillaume (or Prince Guillaume) in 1658, from Aunis province of France, with her 3 children, Marie, Charles and Madeleine. No trace of abjuration of the protestant religion was found in the records in the colony, so it can be thought that the family abjured in France before leaving.[4]

Her children are also stated as having been hired by contract (on their individual fichier files).

Her daughter Marie Dutost (sic) married Pierre Lemay on 15 June 1659 in Trois-Rivières.[5] That record does not state whether Marie's parents were deceased or not.[6]

Her son Charles married Jeanne Rivard in 1669 (contract)[7]

Contrat de mariage entre Dutos, Charles, de Champlain, fils de Pierre Dutos et de Jeanne Pairain, de La Rochelle; et Jeanne Rivard, fille de Nicolas Rivard et de Catherine Saint-Père, de St-Éloy (22 avril 1669) Vol XXVI pg 247 Notaire Jacques de La Tousche[8]

Her daughter Madeleine married Nicolas Leblanc dit Labrie in 1664 (contract)[9]

Contrat de mariage entre Nicollas Leblanc dit Labrie, fils de Nicollas Leblanc dit Labrie et de Pierrette Chesnart; et Magdeleine Dutos, fille de Pierre Dutos, du pays d’Aunis (2 novembre 1664). Vol XXVI pg 209 Notaire Jacques de La Tousche[8]

Per this bio of the family (in French), none of the marriage records or contracts of her children state whether she was deceased or not. Her contract to Jacques Le Neuf was for 5 years. Prefen Jeanne Perrin et ses enfants They state Jacques Le Neuf was resident of Québec, but most traces of him are in Trois-Rivières, where he was residing in 1666 census.

She probably died in Trois-Rivières. She does not appear in 1666 and 1667 censuses, although those are notoriously sketchy on the names of servants. Only one woman is actually named as domestic servant in 1666 census in Trois-Rivières. Trois-Rivières parish records of the period are also fragmentary. Unless she returned to France.

Is Jeanne Pouvreau really her sister? Thought is strange that her mom-in-law turned out to be her sister.......
