"The name “Antaya” is associated uniquely with the descendants of François Pelletier and Marguerite Morisseau, who married on September 26, 1661, at the Mission Saint-Joseph in Sillery. François was the son of Nicolas Peltier and Jeanne de Vousy, originally from the parish of Gallardon, today within the department of Eure-et-Loir in France. He was the first to bear this name, and his descendants are the only ones to bear it today. It is therefore a name that belongs solely to these sons and daughters of Québec."

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.

'Francois traveled with his brother-in-law, Noel Jeremie, Sieur of la Montagne, interpreter and clerk at the trading posts of the Domaine du Roi (King's Domain). Francois married a native woman at the post of Tadoussac, in the presence of the Jesuit priest Albanel, in April, 1660 without any publication (of marriage bans) or advance notice of any kind. This caused a considerable reaction; this marriage was hardly accepted in the religious community - a white married to a pagan was not looked upon favorably. The young lovers were not happy for very long since on April 13, 1661, Francois' wife died at the Hospital in Quebec. No child was born from this marriage of Francoise Pelletier and Dorothee the Native (le Sauvagesse). Francois Pelletier, now a widower, becomes engaged to Marguerite Morisseau. After the publication of the three banns at the church of Sillery, they married on Sept 6, 1661 before Jesuit priest Pierre Bailloquet. their first six children are born and baptized in the...Read MORE...
