Did You Know?Quebec - Did you know? The Assomption (or arrow) sash is a symbolic piece of clothing central to the culture of the French-speaking population of North America. The item was widely worn for almost a century, from the end of the 18th to the end of the 19th century, before it fell into disuse, a result of the decline of the fur trade industry... In 1777, a German [probably Hessian] mercenary, staying in Saint-Anne-de-la-Pérade is more explicit in his comments: 'They wear a thick wool sash with long fringes around their hips and over their coat-they weave it themselves-these sashes are of a variety of colours, depending on the wearer's taste.'

Did You Know? What is a 'dit/dite' name?  When the first settlers came to Canada from France it was a custom to add a 'dit' nickname to the surname. The English translation of 'dit' is 'said'. The Colonists of Nouvelle France added 'dit' names as distinguishers. A settler might have wanted to differentiate their family from their siblings by taking a 'dit' name that described the locale to which they had relocated. The acquiring of a 'dit' name might also be the result of a casual adoption, whereby the person wanted to honor the family who had raised them. Another reason was also to distinguish themselves by taking as a 'dit' name the town or village in France from which they originated. This custom ended around 1900 when people began using only one name, either the 'dit' nickname or their original surname.

Ste Anne De Beaupre
marriage of Pierre Labbe and Marguerite Meusnier

"Pierre Labbe found some land which suited him in the parish of Saint Francois on the south coast of the island... Two months later, on 8 April, we find Pierre signing a contract of marriage with Marguerite Meunier, daughter of Mathurin and Francoise Fafart... Pierre escorted his young bride of 14 years and 8 months to the foot of the altar of the third church of Saint-Anne-de-Beaupre, where they were married by Father Fillon on 10 April 1674. Their honeymoon was spent in a boat crossing the ice-filled river between Sainte-Anne and Saint-Francois, Ile de Orleans."
