Did You Know?Did you know...In the French-speaking parishes of the Province of Quebec, lutins are considered as mischievous, fun-loving little spirits, which may be protecting or annoying household gods or demons, according to the treatment that they receive from the inmates of the house where they have chosen to dwell. It generally takes the form of a domestic pet, such as a dog, a cat, a bird, a rabbit, or even a reptile of the inoffensive species, or, again, rats and mice that have learned to become familiar with the members of a household.

Jacques Archambault

Jacques Archambault is the ancestor single strain over twenty thousand descendants of Archambault.

In 1604, he was born in Dompierre-sur-Mer, Aunis, son of Antoine and Renee Ouvrard. It is assumed that his father lived products of the earth.

In 1629, he married Françoise Thoureault which, from 1630 to 1644, gave him seven children: two son and five daughters.

In 1645, he embarked for New France with six of her children.

From 1645 to 1647, he pledged to work in the field of Pierre Le Gardeur de Repentigny. In 1647, he rented the land of the lordship of Lachenaie to engage in agriculture, but without much success. In 1651, he acquired a concession in Cap-Rouge et Monsieur de Maisonneuve - a few months no more than thirty acres of land. His neighbors were Lambert Closs and Urbain Tessier dit Lavigne.

Archambault family living somewhere in Quebec or Montreal. We know he bought a house in Cap-Rouge in 1654 but he probably settled on the island of Montreal. On 11 October 1658, he dug the first well of the island of Montreal and then three more, was said dowser.

His wife died on 9 December 1663. The ancestor to took second wife Marie Denot, who was herself in her third husband.

He was buried in Montreal on 15 February 1688, when he was 84 years.

His descendants are found in the Montreal area, including: Pointe-aux-Trembles, Rivière des Prairies, l'Assomption, Lachenaie and Repentigny.

Their son Lawrence, husband of Catherine Marchand, had twelve children, but especially thanks to them that the descent was assured.

It was in this family that we owe the foundation of Saint-Antoine-sur-Richelieu, which was created after Peter, son of Lawrence, had accepted on behalf of his son, 15 June 1724, a lease of thirteen acres of land.

marriage Jacques Archambault married Francoise Chauveau Thourault -- Date: 24 JAN 1629 Place:  Luçon (Lucon), France

Family Group Record
St-Philbert, Lucon, Poitou, France

"Jacques Archambault and Francoise Tourault were married in France and brought 7 children into the world before coming to New France... Jacques and Francoise were both natives of Dompierre-sur-Mer, a village in the canton and arrondissement of La Rochelle, in the Charente-Maritime, previously the French province of Aunis. They lived at Dompierre, but more precisely in a hamlet called Lardilliere."

"Jacques, son of Antoine Archambault and of Renee Ouvrard, was at first a laborer and also probably a wine maker, since he sold three barrels of white wine to Jerome Bonnevie, on 15 August 1637."

"Jacques and Francoise were married on 24 January 1629 at Saint-Philibert du Pont-Charault, a locality in Chantonnay, arrondissement of La Roche-sur-Von, in the Vendee, the former province of Poitou."

"...The 7 children of the second generation...were all born in France. Only Louise did not cross the Atlantic, because she died before her family left France. The others came to New France with their parents. They arrived at Quebec, with Pierre Legardeur de Repentigny, director of the new Compagnie des Habitants; perhaps on 5 August 1645; but more probably on 23 September 1646."
