Biography

Jeanne was born around 1658. [1] She was listed in the 1671 census of Port-Royal at age 13 in her family’s household.[2] Jeanne and Étienne Pellerin were married about 1675, probably in Port-Royal since they appear in the 1678 census of Port-Royal with their two daughters age 2 and 6 months. [3] They own 1 arpent of land, and 4 head of cattle. Between about 1676 and 1699 they had ten children: Madeleine, Marie, Pierre, Anne, Jean-Baptiste, Jeanne, Charles (dit Toc), Bernard, Alexandre, Marguerite.

Their growing family was counted in Port-Royal again in 1686 [4], 1693 [5], 1698 [6], 1700 [7] and 1701[8]

Jeanne passed away in 1735 in Port-Royal at the age of about eighty according to the burial record. She was interred on 3 November 1735. The date of death is omitted in the register.[9]

Hi,

Does Marquerite Pellerin already exist as a child of Jeanne and Etienne under an alternate name? I've found a path to Jeanne Savoie, but it's so far back, it may already be discredited and I'm too new at this to feel comfortable adding siblings. The only record I find to a Marguerite is from nosorigines and Ancestry family trees.

Marguerite Caron-223, Marguerite Gaudet -465, Marguerite Pellerin-116 (I added this record and am concerned it needs to be merged).
