Françoise Savoie, daughter of François Savoie and Catherine Lejeune, was born c.1653[1] probably in Port-Royal, Acadie, Nouvelle-France. Her parents married in 1651 and had nine children;[2] she was their first.

She married Jean Corporon in Port-Royal in c.1670,[1] estimated by the age of their first listed child, a unnamed girl, 6 weeks old at the time of the 1671 Port-Royal Census. By 1686, still in Port-Royal, they had seven more children;[3] by 1693 two children were gone with nine remaining at home.[4]

In 1698 they were still living in Port-Royal, and had nine children remaining at home; Charles was not counted.[5] They were counted there again in 1700 with nine children; Charles and Ambroise were missing.[6]

Francoise Savoie, Madame Corporon, was buried on 27 December 1711 at St Jean Baptiste Parish, in Port Royal. The date of death is not mentioned in the register.[7]

Savoie-19 and Savoie-10 do not represent the same person because: different genders
posted by Maggie N.
Savoie-622 and Savoie-10 appear to represent the same person because: Similar names, same parents, sibs, close birth and death dates. Could be sibs with same name?
posted by Jacqueline Girouard
Savoie-625 and Savoie-10 appear to represent the same person because: Francois Savoie and Catherine Lejeune only had one Francoise and her DOB was 1652
