Folks,

Is there a list of known medieval connections to early New France (Quebec)
settlers? If so, would you be so kind as to share it, or let me know
where it is?

Cheers,
Kevan

I can think of the following connections in New France (mostly Acadian). If
any of these are important to you, I'll try to provide more information.

Jean Vincent d'Abbadie, baron de St.Castin

Charles de St.Etienne de Latour (gov.Acadie)

Jeanne de Roeux et Corcelles Motin (wife of Latour and Charles de Menou
d'Aulnay)

Louis d'Amours (de Louviere)

Gabriel Rousseau de Villejoin

Louis de Gannes, sgr. de Falaise

Michel Le Neuf

Marie Marg. Le Gardeur (wife of Jacques Le Neuf)

There are a couple of others that Denis Beauregard is working, presently.

The following have known ancestors, but decsendants are not known by me:

Charles de Menou d'Aulnay (gov.Acadie)

Charles de Biencourt (gov.Acadie)

le Sieur de Monts

A leading authority on this topic was the recently deceased Rene Jette of the
U.de Montreal. His works include:

Traite de Genealogie

Dictionnaire Genealogique des familles du Quebec des origines a 1730.

Many on topic articles.

Good luck,
Mike Talbot

PS: Also search the SGM archives, this topic has been discussed a couple of
times.

Hi,

I am happy that Mr. Mike Talbot answered for the Nouvelle-France part of
your question.

Now...for my part I could suggest (if you have not already done it) you have
a look at the book ¨de la Nouvelle-Angleterre a la Nouvelle-France¨ de
Marcel Fournier published by la Societe genealogique Canadienne Francaise
1992. In this book you will have a knowned list of captives (Deerfield, York
village, Saco, Corlear, Haverhill, etc...) taken to the Montreal area (for
the most part) and from which some of them remained and some got married to
French Canadian. So they are becoming part of our ancestors. What that will
do to answer your question is that some of them have knowned ancestry that
seems to have gatheways to nobility. In my own genealogy I can talk about
Jacques Roy married to Marguerite French (French-Catlin), Jacques Denoyon
married to Abiguail Stebbens (Stebbens-Alexander), Pierre De Lestage married
to Marie-Josette Sayward (Sayward-Rishworth). There are some gatheways for
those peoples on the Internet...I am still searching to see proof or
validity of those gatheways...

It could be looking very strange to look on the English side (for the French
Canadian descendants) to have more chances to get to Charlemagne or Edward I
or Edward III or John of Gaunt or Louis IX...

These are suggestions from an amateur...in genealogy

Yves Gagne is working on more lines. I am currently gathering a
database of Frenchs in North America before 1800 and I will add to
it the nobility lines from time to time. A lot of work to do just
to find those before 1750, my first target.

An old link with some lines:

indeed, no known descendant. Biencourt is a cousin (by the Salazar)
of Latour.

A leading authority on this topic was the recently deceased Rene Jette of the
Traite de Genealogie
TG91 below
Post by MTaHT
Dictionnaire Genealogique des familles du Quebec des origines a 1730.
The DGFQ has a few long lines but none to a king. The editor believed
the dictionary was thick enough. But I published the lines known in
1998 in my GDO (out of stock, but the new dictionary I am working on
will include this kind of material).

To complete the list:

the Billy line was published TG91 585-591, but there is a problem
in the chronology (p. 591-592) and I think this line is wrong at
that point and another link from BILLY to VILLIERS needs to be proven.

128. Antoine de BILLY, seigneur de Mauregard, cm 21-02-1403 (PA 2 118)
129. Pernelle de VILLIERS, or Petronille, daughter of Jean de
Villiers, seigneur de Domont. I see no problem to say that this Jean
is a Villiers de l'Isle-Adam, but 1) Jean is a very common name and
2) the father of Pernelle is only called a knight while the Jean
of the link is Marechal, a more prestigious title.


Levreau de Langis in TG91


Mr Beaudin insists on his connection between the Rene Lippe family
and the princes of Lippe but he has failed thus far to provide a
usable proof.


There is a link from the Adhémar de Lantagnac and Rigaud de Vaudreuil
to a king, but not descendant here (I was contacted recently by a
French descending from a sibling of Adhemar)


I know a few more lines are close to be published by Yves but he
asked me to give no details.

Among the old stock looking possible but not proven yet: the d'Anglure
line, the Rennel line, the Rolland des Pelteaux line (where there is
a problem of usurpation), the Otis line (New England, discussed here
earlier in 2003), one Chevalier/Courcelle line (the illegitimate
son of a baron, the first name of the father is missing and 2 possible
fathers, each with over 10 generations in France), de Belleau, a
Giffard line to Jehanne de BEAUVOISIN (no idea if descendants), the
Ruette line, the Gueret, the Boileau, etc.


Unproven claims, likely closer to wishes than to truth: a Dubois line,
a Coutu line, a Lavergne line (but it is possible one of our Lavergne
has something because of one dit names).


Give me some millions and I am pretty sure we will find a lot more !

Indeed. This is why I tried a few times to get a list of known
Louisianese with descendants with limited success yet.

To this ROUSSEAU de VILLEJOIN line, I can like add the REGGIO if I
ever find the connection to the Italian family from:

REGGIO (de), François Marie (Charles & .. de CANAPAN)
* m vers 1751 Arkansas ? (990404, AR)
FLEURIAU, Hélène (François & Pélagie de MORIÈRES [118606])
(I presume they are the parents or grand-parents of Helene-Judith
below)

TOUTANT dit BEAUREGARD, Jacques-Élie (Louis & Victoire DUCROS)
* m 1808-08-29 Nouvelle-Orléans (St.Louis (cath.))
REGGIO (de), Hélène-Judith (Louis-Charles-Emmanuel DE-REGGIO & Judith
OLIVIER DE-VEZIN)
1) Alfred, m Nouvelle-Orléans (St.Louis (cath.)), Orleans
1850-04-24 Elmina DeBLANC de SAINT-DENIS
2) Angèle, m (possible) 1857-04-29 Mortimer BELLIE
3) Augustin, m Nouvelle-Orléans (St.Louis (cath.)), Orleans
1834-03-19 Adelaide REGGIO
4) Elodie, m Nouvelle-Orléans, Orleans 1843-01-30 Richard
PROCTOR
5) Françoise-Judith, m (possible) 1830-1840 Émile LeGENDRE
6) Judith Heleine Toutant, m (possible) vers 1847 James Robert
FAITH
7) Pierre-Gustave, m New Galvez (St.Bernard), St.Bernard
1841-09-18 Laure VILLERE, m St.James, St.James !1860 Caroline
DESLONDES
8) Pierre-Nicolas-Armand, m Nouvelle-Orléans, Orleans !1868
Alice CHAPMAN
(and there are descendants of that family)


Also, the COULON family, another with a long medieval line, has
descendant in Louisiana, but no connection to reoyalty found so far.

In Quebec, royal connection to one BELLEAU family with no descendant
(this one married to a descendant of Charlemagne) while the sibling of
the same has descendants, a few geneations back in France and when
Janko will publish it, a few more generations throught the Valpergue.
Another line with the RUETTE d'AUTEUIL (descendants include a former
Quebec premier). One line with DUPONT de CHAMBON but I don't know
descendants. The CHARTIER de LOTBINIÈRE has also some more
generations, my own BEAUREGARD then JARRET untel 1471 is likely the
second longer continuous male line in Quebec (after the BILLY).
One more long line with the CHAUBERT (descendants), the PASQUIER de
FRANCLIEU, the D'AILLEBOUST to the STEWARD from Scotland, etc. etc.

Folks,

Wooh, great material! I started working my wife's lines a few month with
much success. I've been using PRDH, some microfilms (to bridge the 19th
century), and other compiled sources. Many of the lines go back to the
early 17th century, and so, the origination of my question. Very
interesting, and thanks so much for the data.

Cheers,
Kevan

it is an act of division between the two daughters of Jean de Villiers
and Nicole d'Yvort. Jean de Villiers, note Jean de Villiers de
something-else, please. The families de Villiers are very complicated.
Don't add confusion. You have several families 'de Villiers' : de
Villiers de L'Isle-Adam, the most kown, may be, de Villiers le Bel, and
son on.

The father and mother of this Jean de Villiers seems to be another Jean
de Villiers and Marie de Mitry.

Monsieur Gérard

Please, explain the "note Jean de Villiers de something-else, please".
The reference you quote contains no "de something-else". What are you
trying to say here, that the reference should have further clarified
this?

What I can infer from this reference is:
that Jean de Villiers and is wife Nicole d'Yvort had three children,
Adam, Perennelle and Marguerite.
That Adam died without offspring
Perennelle married Antoine de Villy
Marguerite married Estienne de Villiers, hopefully not too close a
cousin
And that their was an official division between Perennelle and
Marguerite of the properties and holdings of their father, mother and
brother.

Is this the complete reference or does it further identify the
properties to be divided and who got what?

Thanks for the information, but again please explain your comments.

I'm sorry. It was a kind of stupid joke. I was trying to say, with my
poor american, that there were many Villiers families.

In France, in the Ancien Régime, you were *seigneur* of a place, which
today does not correspond inevitably to a city. Villiers is a very
common name, a very common toponym. So you can have many families that
have took the name of *de Villiers* without relantionship between them.

To differentiate the various branches from the same relationship, the
families could associate another ground name to their name, already
resulting from a first ground.

So from the *de Villiers*, you can have *de Villiers le Sec*, *de
Villiers le Bel*, *de Villiers de L'Isle-Adam* and may be other.

Yes, it's OK, but please read Antoine de Billy, and not Antoine de
Villy, I have done a typing error.

I'm not sure to understand what yoy want to say, because of my really
poor american. You can to know if in this act of division we can found
the properties given to each of the two sisters. ?

I did not make a complete statement. Just a very summary analysis of an
act consulted with the Archives nationales in Paris for antoher
research.

Villiers de L'Isle-Adam, the most kown, may be, de Villiers le Bel, and

Pourquoi un autre ?

Jetté citant Oscar de Poli, 1894, Inventaire des titres de la maison
de Billy:

"Pernelle de Villiers de l'Isle-Adam, fille de Jehan, chevalier,
seigneur de Domont.", Jetté présume: d'après le texte du contrat de
mariage que Poli aurait lu. Mais disons que c'est Villiers tout
court.

Aumont est une seigneurie des Villiers-le-Bel dont un descendant,
Pierre, fait l'acquisition de L'Isle-Adam en 1364.

Le contrat de mariage datant de 1403 (PA) ou 1404 (Poli), si Pernelle
est appelée de Villiers de l'Isle-Adam, le lien de parenté n'est pas
très éloigné.

D'après PA, on aurait:

1 Jean x Marie de l'Isle
1.1a Adam x Alix de Cressy
1.1a.1a Pierre x Jeanne de Beauvais
1.1a.1b Pierre xx Marguerite de Vendome,
acquiert la seigneurie de l'Isle-Adam en 1364
1.1a.1b.1 Pierre x Jeanne de Chatillon **** lien selon TG91
1.1b Adam xx Marie de Mery (ou Jean x Marie de Mitry ?)
1.1b.1 Peronnelle de Villiers, x Charles de Montmorency, xx
Guillaume d'Harcourt
(aurions-nous ?)
1.1b.2 Jean x Nicole d'Yvort, parents de Pernelle

On perd la lignée vers la royauté puisqu'elle passe par Marguerite de
Vendôme.

un index des articles, quand il y a 3 générations toutefois. Mais
j'ai bien l'impression que quand j'aurai fini de tout intégrer ce que
j'ai, il me faudra relire au complet chaque numéro.

Une partie de mes informations est sous forme de texte et j'ai
1,5 m de documents sur papier, dont les photocopies que Jetté m'avait
données il y a quelques années. En plus, il y a les 10 000 pages de
recherches faites en France par Godbout en 1925-1935. Et dans tout
cela, il y a de temps en temps une lignée qui émerge, mais Godbout
(décédé en 1960), puis Jetté (décédé en 2003) ont publié ce qu'ils
avaient déjà trouvé et qui aboutissait au loin. Gagné publie au fur
et à mesure que ses dossiers sont complétés, ainsi que Dulong il me
semble. Pavsic semble avoir du matériel intéressant encore inédit.
Du côté de la Nouvelle-Angleterre, Roger Lawrence, que j'ai vu en
septembre dernier, semble aussi avoir du matériel inédit. Et de mon
côté, j'ai voulu attendre que le filon des trouvailles faites dans le
cadre du Fichier Origine s'atténue avant de publier une nouvelle
compilation de ce que tout le monde a trouvé.

Kevan,

In addition to the French Canadians already mentioned, the ancestry of
following gateway ancestors can be traced to the medieval period and
to royalty & nobility: 1. Catherine Baillon, wife of Jacques Miville.
See the book "Table d`ascendance de Catherine Baillon" by Rene Jette,
John P. DuLong, Roland-Yves Gagne, Gail F. Moreau & Joseph A. Dube,
published by SGCF (www.sgcf.com) 2. Marie Martin, wife of Christophe
Fevrier, see Qui était Jehan de Monteth, écuyer, seigneur
d'Argentenay, ancêtre des d'Ailleboust? (Roland-Yves Gagné), Memoires,
SGCF, vol. 51, #1 (#223)& Ascendance de Claude Aubelin, ancêtre des
d'Ailleboust (Roland-Yves Gagné), Memoires,SGCF, vol. 51, #3 (#225).

Articles about additional ancestors who can be traced to the medieval
period are likely to be found in one of the following periodicals
which specialize in French Canadians: Memoires (SGCF); The following
publications are in English: Michgan's Habitant Heritage (French
Canadian Heritage Society of Michigan; www.fchsm.habitant.org). They
published an English Translation of the ancestry of the LaNeuf
Brothers by John P. DuLong (10/02; 1/03 & 4/03); The American-Canadian
Genealogist (The American-Canadian Genealogy Society of New Hampshire;
www.acgs.org); "Je Me Souviens" (American-French Genealogical Society;
www.afgs.org).

The publications of these groups are indexed in PERSI. The journals
are available in many large public libraries as well as in areas with
a heavy concentration of French Canadians, such as the New England
States, Michigan & Wisconsin. Reprints are also available from the
Societies.

Since French Canadians are just as susceptible to faulty genealogy as
those discussed about American gateway ancestors, you should consult
one of the two main resources for tracing your French Canadian
ancestors prior to 1800: 1."Dictionnaire genealogique des families du
Quebec" by Rene Jette. This covers the period up to 1730. Although
written in French it is very easy to use because it uses standard
abbreviations: birth = n; baptism = b; marriage = m & burial = s. The
book also publishes the known ancestors of the immigrant ancestors at
the time of publication (1983). Biographical information can be
translated with the help of a pocket dictionary or AltaVista's
translation software (http://babelfish.altavista.com/translate.dyn).
2. PRDH (http://www.genealogy.umontreal.ca/en/main.htm), a very
reasonable subscription service which covers the period to 1799. The
minimum subscription costs $13.65 (at today's exchange rate) for 150
records or about 9.1 cents per record. The rate decreases
substantially with subscriptions for more records or hits.

In addition, the marriage records of many Quebec parishes and Ontario
parishes (with a heavy concentration of French Canadians) have been
published and/or filmed by the LDS. The microfilms are available from
FHC. Records are in French.

Hope this helps,

The surnames de Jarlais and de Montigny do not appear in Gadoury's list of
nobles,
but keep in mind that her list is not all inclusive. The use of "de" does
NOT indicate
nobility. However, if you see in original records that your ancestors are
referred
to as an écuyer (esquire), then you have a very good clue that they were
perhaps
nobles.

Which DE MONTIGNY ? I found one long line of a DE MONTIGNY in a web
site, but it has no source and I feel the author of the site didn't
made the search himself. They are not the MINET dit MONTIGNY nor the
PAPINEAU de MONTIGNY, but a later line.

As for the GERLAISE or JARLAIS, this doesn't look like a noble line.

Is there a list of known medieval connections to early New France (Quebec)
settlers? If so, would you be so kind as to share it, or let me know
where it is?
The best list of nobles in New France would be found in:
Gadoury, Lorraine. La Noblesse de Nouvelle-France: families et alliances.
Ville La Salle, QC: Éditions Hurtubise HMH ltée., 1991.
This book is a historical demographic study of French nobles in Canada.
The extensive lists and bibliographies (pp. 161-208) she offers are the best
places to start to see if you have a French Canadian ancestor who was noble
and to check if there is anything published on the family. Be warned that
she does miss some nobles. For example, she does not list Catherine
Baillon.

You can learn more about these nobles by looking them up in the Dictionary
of Canadian Biography at http://www.biographi.ca/EN/index.html.
Keep in mind that many of these nobles were recently ennobled members of the
nobility of the robe. You only have to go back on or two generations to
find their bourgeois origins. Nevertheless, a few of them will have
pedigrees that extend back to the French nobility of the sword of the Middle
Ages.

As was pointed out in a previous posting, René Jetté documented the Baillon
and Le Neuf lines back to Charlemagne. I am confident other lines will
eventually be documented. Perhaps Denis Beauregard would be kind enough to
repost his list of possible royal gateways. (Denis, I tried searching your
website for
this list yesterday, but could not find it.)

Be forewarned that, as with other ethnic groups, there are many claims to
ancient noble families for colonial French immigrants that just do not hold
up when critically analyzed.

For resources you can use to trace French nobles, I suggest you visit my
"Bibliography for Tracing French Noble Families" web page at
http://habitant.org/tools/noblebib.htm. There is a whole section on the
nobility of New France.

I hope this information helps.

Hi Kevan,
I have 2 leads in my family. My grandmother on my father's side is a Courville dite De Billy. I have the generations back into france with them. I was always told there was a connection there to a king. Which one, I'm not too sure. Antoine De Billy, s/o Jean De Billy and Jeanne De Puiseux, married on Feb. 21, 1402/03 to Pernelle De Villiers, d/o Jean de Villiers and Jeanne de Vallengoujart. Pernelle was supposed to be the cousin to a king... I have been trying to find the cousin link, but still do not know where it is exactly.
On the other hand, my great grandmother on my mother's side was a Beauchamp who married into the Belanger line. I have gone back down the Beauchamp line to 1560, and from there I hit a wall. So I tried coming back from the first Beauchamp in France. One went to fight in England with William duke of Normandy. He and his family became very wealthy. The daughter of Thomas Beauchamp, the then Earl of Warwick, married 3 times her name was Marguerite Beauchamp. She had children with her first husband, and a daughter with the last one. The daughter was Margaret Beaufort, her father was the earl of Beaufort. She became the mother of King Henry VII and the grandmother to Henry VIII. I am looking to see who came back to france to form my great grandmother's line, but I have been hitting walls for a long time. So, now you know of at least 2 families that came west. I also have Abraham Martin's line since his daughter married a "Ratie"(Rate) and a son of hers Pierre Rate had a daughter who married into my mother's line the Paradis. I have the Paradis line, back into France in 1575, and the Martin line to about 1451 in Germany with Viet Martin.
My father's line is the "Dubois" line. I go back to 1645 in St.Hilaire-Foissac in what is now Bas-Limousin.
So, if you wish you can contact me at... ***@gmail.com. I will help all I can. Good luck with your searches. Nicole Dubois

The parents of the pioneer are unknown. Anything you will read about
his "parents" is bogus, hypothetical, wrong, fiction, unproven (chose
your word).

This for parents of Jean François de Billy

This looks like bogus. You should indicate who is the immigrant, i.e.

wrong...

Just sharing something about the chevalier François Marie DE REGGIO:

It is "said" that he was a "cousin' of governor DE VAUDREUIL. (possibly through his brother D IBERVILLE ?)

Moreover, it is also said that he was linked to the family D' ESTE.

Send anything serious to ***@hotmail.com ! Thank you and regards from France.

D'Iberville is a Lemoyne, not a Rigaud or Reggio.

Louis Philippe RIGAUD de VAUDREUIL married a Lemoine, so linked
to d'Iberville.
Post by a***@gmail.com
Moreover, it is also said that he was linked to the family D' ESTE.
The family sheet of Reggio:

[128066] REGGIO (de), François Marie (Charles & .. de CANAPAN
[134645]), né vers 1732 Alba, Piedmont (Italie)
* mariés vers 1751, de Arkansas ? (Arkansas)
FLEURIAU, Héléna (François & Pélagie de MORIÈRES [118606]), née avant
1739 Nouvelle-Orléans (Saint Louis), Orleans (Louisiane)
1) Louis-Charles-Emmanuel, né 1759, marié Nouvelle-Orléans ?
(Louisiane) avant 1793 Judith OLIVIER DE VEZIN

Main source : New Orleans Genesis (16) 257

I don't think François is a cousin of Vaudreuil.

There is a very important gateway to canadians, Catherine Baillon who has several descents from Charlemagne through her father and she is ancestor for example of Angelina Jolie and Celine Dion.

The main contributor is Roland Yves Gagné who publishes about 4 or 5
articles with deep ancestry in Memoires de la Société généalogique
canadienne-française since a few years, but no new royal gateway
since 3 years.

Yves Drolet published an ancestry of the Crisafi brothers but I don't
see a royal line. Some Grimaldi, so with a deeper work, it is possible
there will be some royal connection, but anyway, the Crisafi have no
descendants.

I may add lines with no publication, so you won't notice that by
looking at only the references in that page.

Anyway, do you know any new royal line in New France or Acadia
from a reliable source ?

Bonjour Denis,

Thank you for all of your work. I'm sure you know of Adrien d'Abancourt dit La Caille. If you didn't hear already, some smart person found a document of him from when he was in the army in Saint Waast, northern France that states he was from la paroisse de Saint Paul de Beauvais, and so would probably be a younger son of Jean III d'Abancourt et Ide de Neufville, not the previous suspected parents. Aubert de la Chesnaye des Bois gives the eldest son for Jean but leaves open any younger children. Adrien is the family name down the male line. From there,

Adrien II d'Abancourt -
Raoulette de Caux -
Thomasse de Tournebu -
Roger de Tournebu -
Marie Paynel -
Guillaume Paynel, sire de Milly et Marie d'Harcourt -
etc. etc. - - -

Hello Denis,

I agree with the names, it needs specific proof to put on an official list. If I remember correctly everybody made up some other d'Abancourt parents for him online like they always do, but someone found the document (I can't remember it could have been you), that he was born in St-Paul de Beauvais. It is all circumstantial (however likely) that he is from the Adrien d'Abancourts of Beauvais (like you say which one for sure?). Unfortunately La Chesnaye des Bois only gives the eldest son for the couple from around the same time and place Adrien La Caille was born.

I briefly emailed Roland Gagne about the problem they had with the Longueval family record over in France (they nailed the info for the Joyeuse), and I know he does not like conjecture, but I have a hard time believing our predecessors picked a town (Estrees=Coeuvres?) and just made up a place of origin for Antoinette de Longueval's family (I know many "gaps" were "filled" in the family lists back then but that seems pretty specific). With a 20+ year gap in records for Antoinette's family (vers 1580-1605), more for the parents, just about anything could have happened prior to the time they ended up in Epieds. As I'm sure you know more than me, most of these could probably be answered by more digging in the registers and/or archives over there, but I can't do it right now.

All the best,

Jacques (Jamie) Robert Lavigne

Le mieux que nous obtenons sur l'internet est "Dictionnaire de la Noblesse..."

"Jean d'Abancourt IIIeme du nom . . . . Il avoit épouse, par contrat . . . . . Demoiselle Ide de Neufville, dont pour fils ainé :

Francois d'Abancourt, IIeme du nom. . . . "

c'est tout. . .

On sait que les deux sont de la famille "d'Abancourt", et de la ville de Beauvais dans la même époque. C'est probablement écrit dans une archive dans Beauvaisis.

Denis,

Je n'ai pas d'email pour vous mais j'essaierai quand même de vous demander en tous cas. J'écrirai en anglais parce que ton anglais est meilleur que mon français.

I am not a genealogist by profession, but a land surveyor (arpenteur), so I do know registers and civil law, and I do know a lot about history. In the SGCF article with the Longueval Project, in the several notarized transactions they found for a "Charles de Longueval" in Epieds, Picardie between 1607-1616, I noticed the two that mention "Louise de Joyeuse" as widow "veuve" of "Charles de Longueval", it does not mention with any title, but another act lists a "Charles de Longueval" as present and with no wife mentioned as "seigneur en partie de Sivry et Vuallicourt (Walincourt)". To me this could be another person entirely, obviously if not the same man then probably a son with the same name, and could easily have been lost to the records by disinheritance and/or debt like the mother's family (de Joyeuse).

There were only a handful of branches of the Longueval dynasty in Picardie at this time, and several are known to have married members of the Joyeuse dynasty. I keep going back to the original legend, now disproven, with the seigneurs de Haraucourt (Jean-Antoine de Longueval et Anne de Maridor), however a younger brother was named Charles de Longueval, but was killed in battle in 1595. This Charles de Longueval is not listed with any wife or children in Aubert de la Chesnaye, unlike all the siblings. Any genealogist knows that even people in Haute Noblesse families would be expunged from these old books if the next generation was demoted or dishonored.

As I said, there is no description in the two notary transactions in Epieds for the deceased husband of Louise de Joyeuse, so what if the then living Charles de Longueval at that time listed alone in person in the other transaction is a forgotten son. Both of their daughters have the same names as siblings of the Charles de Longueval from the Lords of Haraucourt (Antoinette=Jean-Antoine, Anne=Anne), and both families (Longueval de Haraucourt/ Joyeuse de Grandpre)have the same links to the d'Estrees and Bourbon families through their grandfathers and great grandfathers, which could explain such a marriage arrangement. We have no records of the family of Antoinette de Longueval between 1563-1603, so there is a lot missing here, and the maison de Longueval was one of the leading families in Picardie.

Roland-Yves Gagne obviously did not want to hear it since understandably it gave them so much trouble trying to find it, but I think the children (Antoinette, Anne, et Charles??), could have ended up cut off somehow like they found with the family of de Joyeuse, which would explain no writings or records for them between 1563-1603. Also there is a lack of records overall because this was the Wars of Religion and Picardie was the worst hit, with Spanish invasions, which ended up killing both Jean-Antoine de Longueval and Charles de Longueval, and I think might be why they could be related but the wife and children ended up relatively ruined. I do not know where this connection between Antoinette de Longueval and the seigneurs de Haraucourt originally came from, but it seems to have been old, like from Godbout or Tanguay, maybe you know. I have looked deep online, there are no more records there, any would be in the registers somewhere in that part of France, and it is disturbing that Roland Yves Gagne and his team looked hard and didn't find any, although I do not think they checked the "seigneurie de Sivry (Sivry-les-Buzancy) et Vuallicourt (Walincourt-Selvigny)". Any thoughts if you have any would be nice.

Merci,

Jamie Robert Lavigne

mention "Louise de Joyeuse" as widow "veuve" of "Charles de Longueval", it does not mention with any title, but another act lists a "Charles de Longueval" as present and with no wife mentioned as "seigneur en partie de Sivry et Vuallicourt (Walincourt)". To me this could be another person entirely, obviously if not the same man
then probably a son with the same name, and could easily have been lost to the records by disinheritance and/or debt like the mother's family (de Joyeuse).

Yves is aware of a lot of stuff. He spent a lot of time on this and
other cases, using original records.

There were only a handful of branches of the Longueval dynasty in Picardie at this time, and several are known to have married members of the Joyeuse dynasty. I keep going back to the original legend, now disproven, with the seigneurs de Haraucourt (Jean-Antoine de Longueval et Anne de Maridor), however a younger brother was
named Charles de Longueval, but was killed in battle in 1595. This Charles de Longueval is not listed with any wife or children in Aubert de la Chesnaye, unlike all the siblings. Any genealogist knows that even people in Haute Noblesse families would be expunged from these old books if the next generation was demoted or
dishonored.

I thing Aubert de la Chesnaye made no original research and only
copied other sources. So it is surely not the best tool to find
more.

As for the Maridor daughter, this Antoinette was too young and anyway
married to another guy. So there is no reason to keep this
possibility.
Post by John P. DuLong
As I said, there is no description in the two notary transactions in Epieds for the deceased husband of Louise de Joyeuse, so what if the then living Charles de Longueval at that time listed alone in person in the other transaction is a forgotten son. Both of their daughters have the same names as siblings of the Charles de
Longueval from the Lords of Haraucourt (Antoinette=Jean-Antoine, Anne=Anne), and both families (Longueval de Haraucourt/ Joyeuse de Grandpre)have the same links to the d'Estrees and Bourbon families through their grandfathers and great grandfathers, which could explain such a marriage arrangement. We have no records of the family
of Antoinette de Longueval between 1563-1603, so there is a lot missing here, and the maison de Longueval was one of the leading families in Picardie.

Again, your opinion is based on what is available online.
Yves made a lot of travels to France and was helped there
with local genealogists.

Roland-Yves Gagne obviously did not want to hear it since understandably it gave them so much trouble trying to find it, but I think the children (Antoinette, Anne, et Charles??), could have ended up cut off somehow like they found with the family of de Joyeuse, which would explain no writings or records for them between
1563-1603. Also there is a lack of records overall because this was the Wars of Religion and Picardie was the worst hit, with Spanish invasions, which ended up killing both Jean-Antoine de Longueval and Charles de Longueval, and I think might be why they could be related but the wife and children ended up relatively ruined. I do
not know where this connection between Antoinette de Longueval and the seigneurs de Haraucourt originally came from, but it seems to have been old, like from Godbout or Tanguay, maybe you know. I have looked deep online, there are no more records there, any would be in the registers somewhere in that part of France, and it is
disturbing

The Haraucourt is based on a theory by Denis Amiot but it is
from printed books and not from records. Since that Antoinette
is too young, we should completely ignore this theory. Denis

What were the connections between the Joyeuses, on one hand, and the Longuevals, d'Estrees and Bourbons, on the other hand?

Hello/ bonjour,

I believe it was Tanguay/ others who mentioned a town of Estrees associated with the Couvents originally, the article in SGCF thought it was one of the towns named Estrees today in another diocese, but to me it is clearly the town of Coeuvres in diocese of Soissons, made marquisate de Coeuvres, then Duche d’Estrees and was known as Estrees, today called Coeuvres, seat of Jean d’Estrees and his wife Catherine de Bourbon, parents of Francoise d’Estrees wife and mother of de Longuevals de Haraucourt. Coeuvres is also abutting the town of Montgobert, seat of Robert de Joyeuse and his wife Marguerite de Barbancon, dame de Montgobert, grandparents of the Joyeuse of the Couvents. The three families married a number of times (Francois-Annibal d’Estrees + Gabrielle de Longueval, etc. etc.). This is all in online records. The Maison de Longueval is one of the highest dynasties of Picardy so there is a story there with the paternal side of Antoinette de Longueval.

No connection with Estrees (misreading for Epieds) and Bourbons
(hypothesis abandonned for many years).

As for the Longueval-Joyeuse connection, you may begin with

http://www.francogene.com/genealogie-quebec-genealogy/196/196445.php

Ignore the DNA signature.

There is a long path before reaching the nobility and it is not
with the Bourbon.

Tanguay and others did not misread Epieds with Estrees, and specifically said it was in the "eveque de Soissons" just like Coeuvres is. They themselves read and wrote more scribbly cursive writing on these old records than anyone. Coeuvres was called Estrees and is in the Eveque de Soissons, there is a Charles de Longueval in this family from the same time, place, and family names with Antoinette de Longueval, those are facts. Charles de Longueval, seigneur de Prouville born vers 1555 in same area as Epieds, no family given. Those are facts. He was a grandson of the daughter of the Bourbon Batarde de Vendome, another fact. You all did not see that Coeuvres was called Estrees up until the Revolution, these are all facts. I think Tanguay, Godbout, Amiot, etc., all had access to other records or family information linking the Couvents to the Duchy of Estrees (Coeuvres) that is lost or missing. I give the original genealogists more credit than this, and while I applaud the work you and others have done in recent years for Canadian family histories, think you all need to be more cautious before dismissing certain things.

Even without the Picquigny line, isn't it true that the de Marle's have royal descent through Thomas de Marle, Count of Amiens (died 1129/30 in captivity) who descends from both Aethelred King of England, and also from Henry the Fowler, Holy Roman Emperor?

I understand the hesitation with the de Billy line, although the circumstance seems to be indicated by the marriage with Catherine de La Marche, who was from the same family and town (Sommereux-Beauvais) of the same de Billy line with Francois de Billy, seigneur de Baricourt. Both he and Jean-Francois had major problems, both personal and legal (apparently several arrests and court records found for Jean-Francois, at least one if I can remember back in France, which explains the sudden excursion to far flung Canada), Jean-Francois did not keep his nobility. His "dit" name could have been from a personal relationship to the senior line of that family "seigneurs de Courville", or just to take the most well known family branch name to differentiate from the commoner Billy habitant that settled in Canada the same time.

The timeline definitely does not fit for Pernelle de Villiers, in 1403/04 it would have had to have been an infant contract marriage for her as daughter of the Marshal of France, and the account of the son, Jean II de Billy being ransomed by the King in 1422 would have be the wrong date too in "HISTOIRE GENEALOGIQUE ET CHRONOLOGIQUE DE LA MAISON ROYALE DE ..., Volume 2: p. 118". The parents must be the Jean de Villiers and . .. de Mery given on this page.

Thank you for all the helpful posts,

I know everyone here thinks they are done with Pernelle de Villiers, but I found this on the town history website for Yvorts-

"LES SEIGNEURS

A Nivelon succède son fils Gérard d’Ivors non comme Burgare*, mais comme Seigneur. Il est qualifié de Chevalier. Viennent ensuite Baudet 1 et Baudet II. Ce dernier fut le père de Marguerite Baudet laquelle épousa en 1301 Philippe de Billy-sur-Ourcq. D’où le passage de la seigneurie de Ivors dans la maison de Billy. Philippe fut père de Jean de Billy qui se suicida.


UN SUICIDE AU MOYEN AGE

Ce suicide assez rare au Moyen-Age, entraînait de graves conséquences.

Il faut dire tout d’abord que Jean de Billy se suicida par mélancolie, frénésie, probablement atteint de folie. Il avait marié son fils aîné à la fille du Seigneur de Villiers de l’Isle Adam et pour faire ce brillant mariage, il avait dû faire de grands sacrifices, ensuite ce fils tomba grièvement malade. Un autre de ses fils fut aussi atteint de maladie. Tout cela avait fortement ébranlé les facultés cérébrales peu solides sans doute du pauvre Jean.


La chronique du temps rapporte qu’il se jeta d’une fenêtre de son château de Roissy (Seine & Oise) «.la teste en dessous, nu en sa chemise, la chandelle benoiste (bénite) en la main, faisant de son pouvoir semblant de repentance et de contrition de cœur, et merci à Dieu».

Le suicide était alors considéré comme criminel et puni de peines très sévères. La sépulture ecclésiastique était refusée au suicidé, son corps était pendu ou brûlé, et ses biens confisqués au profit du roy.

Mais en considération des services rendus par Jean de Billy, de son vivant, écuyer et de ses prédécesseurs en compassion à l’égard de sa veuve et de ses enfants, le roy fit grâce de la confiscation des biens et le clergé enterra en l’Eglise de Roissy le corps du suicidé avec les cérémonies accoutumées.

Il y avait déjà à cette époque des accommodement avec le ciel.

SUITE DES SEIGNEURS D’IVORS

La terre d’Ivors revint ensuite à Antoine fils de Jean et qui avait épousé Perrenelle de Villiers de l’Isle Adam, puis à Jean Il son fils qui trahit son Roy Charles VI pour passer aux anglais. Après lui, viennent Perceval de Billy puis François de Billy grand maître des Eaux et Forêts du Valois et enfin Louis de Billy ce dernier fut le père de Marie de Billy qui épousa en 1578 Jean de Nicolaÿ, premier président de la Cour des Comptes."


So as this passage shows the seigneurie d'Yvorts-en-Valois was already in the de Billy family since 1301 (Philippe de Billy ep. Marguerite (Baudet) d'Yvorts-en-Valois). Also, l'Abbé Charles de Billy, given as a younger son of Pernelle de Villiers de l'Isle Adam, died in 1524 at the abbaye de Bussieres (Meaux), so would have been over a hundred years old if he was born a generation earlier. I am not saying people on this blog are lying but this all doesn't make sense.

I have found the notarized act for Pernelle de Villiers found and referenced above on the Archives Nationales website.

Reference code : T//37/17
Terre de Domont : baux, partages de terres, titres de procédure.(1312-1594)

Since I am 101 million in the list to receive a copy over the internet, I will take the gentlemen's word above for the content of it.

Merci beaucoup

I have to keep pushing this along because I do not currently have the means to look through registers in Northern France. I know that it is confusing, but all of the names and dates do match up for the family of Antoinette de Longueval and the Charles de Longueval of Prouville (de la seigneurs d'Haraucourt). Charles born around 1555, Antoinette around 1581. There is a gap of ten to fifteen years from when it is known the seigneur de Prouville was killed in battle (1595), and the first notarized transactions the Longueval Project found in Epieds for those Longuevals (1605,1607 if I remember without looking it up). This is plenty of time for a family to lose its finances and status, just as the very astute SGCF members found for the mother's side (de Joyeuse). This would mean the living Charles de Longueval recorded alone at a notarized transaction at Epieds in 1609 would have to be a derogated or un-cataloged son (like the Francois de Joyeuse) who if born around the time of Antoinette would have been around 27 or 30 years old at that point.

I hope people better at navigating the online archives and web pages than me will look at this, the seigneur de Prouville was also seigneur proprietaire of a fief ferme at Sauvresis

https://books.google.com/books?id=DPRAAAAAcAAJ&pg=PA187&lpg=PA187&dq=Charles+de+Longueval+Cessi%C3%A8res+Sauvresis&source=bl&ots=kywun3xs0U&sig=ACfU3U05B-F41JTJXb96GNVpSCysMsKlCQ&hl=en&ppis=_e&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjAqtaAoIrlAhVvc98KHbzNAfsQ6AEwDXoECAkQAQ#v=onepage&q=Charles%20de%20Longueval%20Cessi%C3%A8res%20Sauvresis&f=false

and until more information is found either way, it ties into everything found by the SGCF team, the story of Denis Amiot, and the history from the annals, more than anything else.

I hope people keep looking because the identity of the father Charles is not known, and there are pieces scattered that need to be put together. Any answers would likely be in records (.ca 1550-1610) for Walincourt -Selvigny and/or Sivry-Buzancy. Whether it is in provincial roles that would be Archbishopric (Archevecque) of Cambrai in Cambrai for Walincourt, and County of Champagne I think for Sivry. I will not be able to get abroad anytime soon but let's all look hard and finish the hard work of the SGCF! Merci

The research of Roland Yves Gagné and his colleagues (and not of the
SGCF which is only the publisher here) was made in the French
archives that are not available online. As long as the pandemic will
run, archives will be closed so no search for a while. And once a
case is closed, Yves works on another case.
