Did You Know? Québec Généalogie - What is a 'dit/dite' name?  When the first settlers came to Québec 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.

Marie NIQUET was the child of Pierre-René NIQUET (NIQUETTE) and Françoise LEMOINE


Cathedral de Trois-Rivieres

"On July 20, 1699 Francois Pelloquin was married to Marie Niquet in the church of Notre Dame in Three Rivers, Quebec. From the certificate of marriage, we learn that Francois Pelloquin dit Credit, a professional soldier from the parish of Saint André of Niort was married to Marie Niquet, the widow of Dominique Jutras, who had lived in the parish of Champlain. This marriage document created a misunderstanding that Francois Pelloquin was assigned to the Company Saint-Ours and by extrapolation it was assumed that he came to Canada with the Carrigan Regiment. This is unlikely, however, since Francois was but two years old at that time. There are four entries of this event in the registry. The original document reads: 'Francois Pelloquin dit Credit, soldier in company M. ---[ blank ]. Unfortunately the name has been erased. The second document which was produced at the same time indicates: 'Francois Pelloquin soldier of company M. of Saint-Martin'. The two other copies were made recently, one is the same as the original, while the other attributes Francois to the company of Saint-Ours. It is believed that the document that attributes him to the company M. of Saint-Martin is correct."

"On 8 July 1699, a few days prior to the wedding, the notary, Severin Ameau, of Three-Rivers drew up the marriage contract. It records that Francois Pelloquin born in the Parish of Saint-André de Niort in Poitou, the son of Mathurin Pelloquin who lived on Niort and the deceased Ambroise Syllard. His betrothed, Marie Niquet, the widow of Dominique Jutras, and daughter of Pierre Niquet and Francoise Lemoine, lived within the manor of Saint-Francois. Through this marriage Francois became the patriarch of Marie Niquet's five children from her previous marriage. They were: Marie-Ange,14 years Michel, 11 years Jean-Baptiste,8 years Catherine,6 years and Francoise, 18 months. The contract of marriage was countersigned by De Ramesay, Credit Francois Pelloquin, Francoise Lemoine and others whose signatures are unreadable."

webusers.warwick.net/ ~u1025211/ peloquins.html 

Marie-Françoise HAREL was the child of Jean-Marie-Victor-François HAREL and Marie PESCHER


"On 23 December 1708, Francois sat with the notary Pottier in Three-Rivers to draw up a contract for his marriage to Marie-Francoise Harel the widow of Pierre Blanchet. Francois had been employed as a miller, living at the grist mill of Mr. Framboise. Both brought three children into the marriage. The five children of Marie Niquet were taken in by their grandfather Pierre Niquet of Saint Francois-du-Lac. This document has been preserved and is contained in "La Collection de Pieces Judiciares et Notaires 1638-1759" in the National Archives in Quebec. Francois retained possession of his farm at Baie Saint-Antoine on which he had a cedar barn covered with sod and hay. His fiancee also had a farm centrally located within Baie Saint-Antoine. A document drawn up by the notary Chambalon in Quebec on 30 October 1710 indicates that Francois owned a milling business in Quebec and at the time lived in Beauport. In addition, the document also remitted to Sebatien Trocat the farm of Marie-Francoise Harel which had been granted to her first husband Pierre Blanchet on 21 September 1706. Two years later, on 3 October 1712, again before notary Chambalon, Francois Pelloquin remitted his farm to Mr. Courval on the condition that he dismiss arrears in taxes and rents due. The reason for this action was that the farm was not being worked. At this time, Francois was in fact a miller living at the mill of Mr. Forillon at Points-aux-Lievres near the city of Quebec. Mr. Forillon was Louis Albert de Forillon, Lord of Kamouraska."
