Etienne Trudeau, the Ancestor of all the Trudeaux
"Etienne Trudeau, the Ancestor of all the Trudeaux, was said to be the son of Francois, Master Mason, and of Catherine Matinier, of Notre-Dame-de-Cogne, in the city of La Rochelle. He had been baptized in another parish of the same city: Saint-Marguerite, on 15 September 1641. His godparents were Etienne Vilain and Catherine Boulliot. This robust fellow, a master carpenter at eighteen and already noted for his fine work, decided to try an adventure in Canada. On 8 June 1659, before notary Demontreau and Jerome Le Royer, the Representative of Monsieur de Queylus, he signed a contract 'to do five years of military service in New France.' (1) Etienne left La Rocehlle on 2 July 1659 aboard the Sainte-Andre, a ship of 300 tons. Also aboard during the same crossing were Marguerite Bourgeoys, Jeanne Mance and two Sulpicians. (2)"

The donation called for the son to take care of the old folks by giving them butter, milk, and eggs, in addition to wheat, peas, etc. For this the son was heir not only to the land, but also to four oxen, six cows, two horses, four pigs, six ewes, and twenty-four chickens.

Etienne Trudeau died at Montreal where, on 22 July 1712, he was buried... On 19 December 1717, Adrienne Barbier proceeded to partition the considerable wealth that remained to her among her children.
