Re: Roy dit LaPensee - Beauharnois By Diana Cockwill November 21, 2009 at 12:08:56 In reply to: Re: Louis Roy dit LaPensee m Angele Leger Ernest Lapensee 7/30/00
There were three Roys exiled to Australia in the wake of the 1838 Rebellion. They were pardoned in 1844 and returned to Canada in 1845. The three were Charles Roy dit Lapensee and his two nephews Joseph and Basile (who were cousins).
Charles Roy Lapensee - Son of Basile Roy and Marie (Henriette) Hebert. Farmer of Beauharnois, 52 years, 5' 8", illiterate. Uncle of Basile Roy and of Joseph Roy, exiles. Husband of Monique Tougas (Chateauguay, November 12, 1810), daughter of the late Charles Tougas and Charlotte Biscornet, of La Prairie. Five sons and three daughters, of which only three are still minors when he left in exile: Joseph, Monique, Felicite.
Joseph Roy* - Son of Louis Roy and Catherine Thibert. Labourer of Beauharnois, 24 years, 5' 5" illiterate. Cousin of Basile Roy, nephew of Charles Roy. Husband of Marie-Domitilde Gendron (Beauharnois, February 6, 1838), daughter of Joseph Gendron and the late Marie-Anne Guy. One daughter, born during the rebellion: Philomene (November 8, 1838). Domitilde Gendron died at Beauharnois on December 21, 1842, age 25 years, during the exile of her husband. He learned the news on August 15, 1843, in Australia. Second wedding to Angele Lemay (Beauharnois, May 20, 1845), daughter of François Lemay and Marguerite David.
Basile Roy - Born at Chateauguay, on December 3, 1797, son of Basile Roy and Josephe Chatigny. Farmer of Beauharnois, 42 years, 5, illiterate. Nephew of Charles Roy, cousin of Joseph Roy. Husband of Josephe Henault (Chateauguay, January 27, 1817), daughter of Joseph Henault and Archange Lefebvre. Children: Basile, Antoine, François. Second marriage to Julie Dandurand (Beauharnois, May 21, 1833), daughter of Jean-Baptiste Dandurand and Ursule Lefebvre. Children: Jean-Baptiste, Wenceslas, Joseph.
This information comes from "Journal d'un patriote exilé en Australie, 1839-1845 By François Maurice Lepailleur, Georges Aubin; pp 392-3."
Basile Roy and Marie Henriette Hebert had 10 or 11 children. As far as I can figure out their children were: Pierre, Basile, Joseph, Louise, Louis, Catherine, Paul, Marie Archange, Charles, Etienne, and Marguerite. The records that I've located have been mostly from Châteauguay, Ile-Perrot, and Beauharnois.
There is a parish record at St-Timothée, Beauharnois for the 24 Nov 1840 marriage of Louis Roy, son of Jacques Roy & Elisabeth Haunault?, and Angele Leger, daughter of Francois Leger dit Parisean (or Pariseau) & Josephte Pitre (deceased).
