Premier Canadien à épouser une Autochtone de la Nouvelle-France

PRÉVOST (Provost), MARTIN, un des pionniers de Beauport, près de Québec, né vers 1611, fils de Pierre Prévost et de Charlotte Vien, de Montreuil-sur-le-Bois-de-Vincennes (aujourd’hui Montreuil-sous-Bois), près de Paris, décédé à Beauport le 26 janvier 1691.

C’est le premier mariage entre un Français et une autochtone dont fassent mention les annales du Canada. La jeune épouse avait été donnée par ses parents à l’interprète Le_Tardif-3|Olivier Letardif, qui l’avait fait élever à la française, chez les Sœurs Ursulines après lui avoir servi de parrain et plus tard, chez Guillaume Hubou et sa famille.

Après son mariage et jusqu’à sa mort, on voit Martin Prévost établi à Beauport comme habitant, c’est-à-dire résident permanent de Nouvelle-France, ce qui lui permis d’avoir un emplacement et une maison à Québec, en 1667.

Il épousa en secondes noces (1665) Marie d’Abancourt, veuve de Jean Jollyet (Jolliet) et de Gefroy (Godfroy) Guillot.

Vers la fin de sa vie, il signait Provost. Ses descendants ont adopté l’une ou l’autre orthographe.

Biography

PRÉVOST (Provost), MARTIN Martin Prévost, born January 4, 1611 in Montreuil (Seine-Saint-Denis) and death January 27, 1691 in Beauport ( Québec ), is a pioneer of French Canada and ancestor of a large part of Prévost's North America.

Pioneer of New France as Pierre Tremblay and Julien Mercier, Martin Prévost was born January 4, 1611 in Montreuil (Seine-Saint-Denis) and is baptized the same day in the church of Saint-Pierre-et-Saint-Paul de Montreuil 1. He sailed for Canada in 1638. On November 3,1644 he married in Quebec Marie-Olivier-Sylvestre Manitouabeouich a native Amerindian girl. They then settled in the Seigneurie of Beauport where they had eight children, all baptized in Quebec. Martin Prévost died January 27,1691 in Beauport ( Québec ).


PÉVOST (Provost), Martin: One of the pioneers of Beauport near Quebec; b. c. 1611, son of Pierre Prévost and Charlotte Vien, of Montreuil-sur-le-Bois-de-Vincennes (now Montreuil-sous-Bois), near Paris; d. 26 Jan. 1691 at Beauport.

Prévost’s presence at Quebec is referred to in the documents of the notary Piraube as early as the year 1639. On 3 Nov. 1644, he married, at Quebec, (baptised) Marie-Olivier-Sylvestre (born) Manitouabeouich. This is the first marriage between a Frenchman and a native mentioned in Canadian historical records. The young bride had been given by her parents to the interpreter Olivier Le Tardif, who had been her godfather and had then had her brought up as a French girl in the home of Sieur Guillaume Hubou.

From the time of his marriage until his death, we find Martin Prévost settled at Beauport as an “habitant,” or farmer, which did not prevent him from having a piece of land and a house at Quebec in 1667. He was married a second time in 1665, to Marie d’Abancourt, the widow of Jean Jollyet (Jolliet) and of Gefroy (Godfroy) Guillot. Prévost had at least nine children by his first wife.

Towards the end of his life, Prévost signed his name “Provost.” His descendants have adopted one or other of the two spellings.

Marie Olivier Sylvestre-1st Recorded Marriage in Quebec Between Frenchman and a New-France native woman

Marie Olivier Sylvestre was a native woman of the Algonguin nation (amérindienne de la tribu des Algonquins (selon le père Hierosme (Jérôme) Lalemant) whose name was Manitouab8ich. Her marriage to Martin Prevost was the first recorded marriage of a frenchman and a native woman in Canada. As a young girl she had been baptized with the consent of her father, and given the Christian name of Marie Olivier Sylvestre, to be raised and educated in the French manner; she was so named in honnor of her godfather, Olivier Le Tardif who came to Canada between 1618 - 1621. He was an interpreter for the Huron & Algonquin native languages. He was a close collaborator of Samuel de Champlain and he was one of the officials in the fur trade for the Cents Associés Company. He was a big help to the Jesuits in helping to evangelize the natives. (See:http://www.biographi.ca/fr/bio/letardif_olivier_1F.html) .

Text:

In the early history of Canada, it was not until Olivier LeTardif became the personal representative and interpreter for Samuel de Champlain that we first hear the nameRoch Manitouabewich. This young Canada native of the Algonquin Nation, had been hired as LeTardif's own scout and traveling companion. Manitouabewich had been converted to Christianity by the French missionaries, and as part of the baptismal ritual, had been given the Christian name of Roch, in honor of St.Roch, the patron saint. Olivier LeTardif and Roch Manitouabewich traveled together for many years. After eight years in the field, LeTardif was promoted by Champlain and became the head clerk (equivalent to Secretary-Treasurer) of the fur trading company. It was then that Le Tardif settled down to a more normal way of life, conducting the "inner affairs" of the Company at the main office at Quebec (Basse-ville). Roch Manitouabewich also settled down to a more domestic way of life, but in his own environment of the Huron settlement at Sillery near Quebec. The bond off friendship, trust, and loyalty between these two men was very strong, and, although each lived in his own "milieu", they never lost contact one from the other. It was when Roch Manitouabewich and his wife had a daughter and had her baptized that LeTardif became "Godfather" for the baby girl, and in accordance with the custom of the times, LeTardif gave the girl his own name of Olivier. In addition, the missionary performing the baptism gave the girl the name Marie, in honor of the Virgin Mary, and he also gave her the name Sylvestre, meaning "one who comes from the forest" or "one who lives in the forest". When Marie Olivier Sylvestre was ten years old, Olivier LeTardif, in his generous way and because of his respect for his friend and servant, Roch Manitouabewich, adopted the young Indian girl as his very own daughter (she never carried the family name of LeTardif). This enabled her to be educated and reared in the same manner as a well-to-do French girl. First he placed her as a "live-in border" and student with the Ursuline Nuns at Quebec, and later he boarded her with a French family where she was privately tutored. It was in the atmosphere of this respected family of Guillaume Hubou and his wife Marie Rollet (when she married Guillaume Hubou, she was the widow of Louis Hebert) that Marie Olivier Sylvestre met and married Martin Prevost, friend of the Hubou family and a very personal friend of Olivier LeTardif. This marriage was to be the first marriage on record between an Indian girl and a French colonist. The marriage took place on the third of January 1644 at Quebec. Recorded as witnesses to the ceremony was Olivier LeTardif and Quillaume Couillard (father-in-law of LeTardif). Manit8eabe8ichit Roch Manitoueabeouichit was baptized on 14 Nov 1636. His wife was Outchibahanoukoueou. There is no record of their marriage. François Derré de Gand was his godfather, from whom he received French clothing. He put his daughter into the care of Olivier Letardif, who entrusted her to Guillaume Hubou, the second husband of Marie Rollet, Louis Hébert's widow. She was brought up as French by Guillaume. She was given the christian name of Marie Sylvestre Olivier at her baptism. She married Martin Prévost on 3 Nov 1644 at Québec. Martin & Marie had eight children. Marie is known legally by her father's name Manit8eabe8ichit or Manitoueabeouichit.

Note: It has been said that Marie Olivier Sylvestre was of the Huron nation: This isincorrect. Image 2 states that she was Algonkian - as stated by father Jérome Lalemand, in a sales contract, Further more, the area where Marie Olivier was living was not populated by Hurons, but by Algonkians. Moreover, the names of her parents are both Algonkian.

According to Tanguay, Martin Prévost & Marie (Ouchistaouichkoue) Olivier Sylvestre had three sons named Jean: 1. Jean-Baptiste, no baptism date (married first to Marie Girou and then to Geneviève Sedilot) 2. Jean, b. 1660 (married to Françoise Leblanc) 3. Jean-Baptiste, b. 1662 (married to Françoise Cadieu). I always seem to see them conflated somehow, usually without showing the marriage to Leblanc.
