Antoine Pilon was born June 24, 1664, in Bayeux, Normandy, France to Thomas and Madeleine Rouault Hughes. He emigrated to New France (now known as Quebec) before 1689.

On January 10, 1689, he married Marie Anne Brunet (dit) Letang (or L'Estang). Their union would produce 13 children of whom 9 would live to be adults: Marie Jeanne (m. Jacques Proulx Potvin), Jean Baptiste (m. Marie Anne Gervais), Pierre (m. Marie Anne Jeanne Daoust), Antoine (who died at 1 month), Marie Elisabeth Isabelle (m. Guillaume Daoust), Antoine (who died at 5 months), Mathieu (m. Marie Madeleine Daoust), Jacques (who died at 14 months), Marie Marthe Madeleine (who died at 17 years), Antoine (m. Marie Josephe Roy), Marie Anne (m. Jean Baptiste Dubois Laviolette), Marie Louise (m. Andre Presseau Gauthier) and Jacques (m. Marie Jeanne Messague Laplaine).

On September 19, 1706, Antoine bought Lot 154-D from Madeleine LeMoyne, widow of Jean-Baptiste Beauvais. He had previously bought the adjoining lot, 155-D from her. Lot 154 D was then three acres of frontage on Lake St. Louis, 20 deep. On this land Antoine build the family home and the three youngest children were born in that house. This house is located at 258 Bord-du-Lac Pointe-Claire, Québec, Canada and still stands today. It is one of the oldest buildings of Pointe-Claire.

Antoine Pilon died February 21, 1715, and was buried the next day in Pointe-Claire, Quebec. When Antoine died their youngest child Jacques was about 3 years old. Upon Antoine's death the house and land went to his widow, Marie-Anne who then gave it to their son Mathieu on January 22, 1729. The deed implies a land of five acres in front by 20 deep, which was the formed when combining Lots 154-D and 155-D.

The next owner of the family home was Gabriel Pilon, son of Mathieu and Marie-Josephte Daoust acquiring the lot 154-D when measured on 3 acres 28. The next owner was Pierre Pilon, son of Gabriel Pilon & Suzanne Meloche, an innkeeper & farmer, who inherited the land Dec 7, 1799. The Pilon's finally left the lot, on 1 July 1826, when they sold it to carpenter, W. Glasford.

Marie Anne remarried on June 26, 1719, to Laurent Chatillon Godin. Marie's second husband was buried May 1, 1737, at Rivière-des-Prairies. Marie Anne died on November 6, 1747, and was buried the next day in Pointe-Claire, Quebec.

Reference to 5 generations of Pilon: Antoine Pilon(V) was a voyageur, likely in the employ of one of the partners of the Northwest Company when he traveled through the Détroit River area and settled there, marrying Archange Cuillerier dit Beaubien on October 30, 1809 in the church of Assumption, Windsor, Ontario, CANADA (he had apparently fathered 2 children with Archange previous to their marriage).

In the Assumption Church registry, his father is given as Pierre Pilon and his mother, Françoise Larose (m. 1779). He is said to have been from the parish of Ste-Anne, Ile de Montréal. A slight problem occurs in that there never was a Pierre Pilon married to a Françoise Larose. However, there was a Pierre Pilon who married Françoise Robidoux, whose mother was a Bellerose.

Pierre Pilon (IV), Antoine's father, was the son of Antoine Pilon (III) and Marie-Josephte Roy (m. 1729).

Antoine (III) was the son of Antoine Pilon (II) and Marie-Anne Brunet (m. 1689 Montreal).

This last Antoine (II) (son of Thomas Pilon (I) and Madeleine Hugues dit Ruault) arrived in New France likely earlier in the 1680's, being from Bayeux, Normandy, while Marie-Anne Brunet was born in New France[2]
