Françoise Savoie, daughter of François Savoie and Catherine Lejeune, was born c.1653
probably in Port-Royal, Acadie, Nouvelle-France. Her parents married in 1651 and had nine children; she was their first.
She married Jean Corporon in Port-Royal in c.1670,
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;
by 1693 two children were gone with nine remaining at home.
In 1698 they were still living in Port-Royal, and had nine children remaining at home; Charles was not counted.
They were counted there again in 1700 with nine children; Charles and Ambroise were missing.
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.

wife, Catherine LeJEUNE 38;
children: Francoise 18,
