Translated from French:

With the death of Jacques, about 1544, one difficult period opens for Tremblay. Its heirs are obliged to alienate a part of their grounds. However in 1565 one finds the trace of a regrouping carried out by "honest person" Gallien Tremblay, wire of Jacques (1). But they are insulated acts. Another, utilizes Thomas Tremblay, one of wire of Gallien, in 1565 (2). It is here a question of a double sale in favour of Thomas Freschot, remaining in the parish of Conturbie: initially, of a ground half-newspaper located to the Hermitage and dependent on the stronghold of the Trap door, then of one arpent ground separate of the first part by the way which goes from Conturbie in Chennebrun. The first wedges in the grounds of Tremblay known as "Barons", which gives to suppose that the salesman, Thomas Tremblay, holds it by heritage by way of descendant of these Tremblay known as "Barons"; at the other end, it is limited by the ground of a Michel Tremblay. As for the second, along which also the road of Conturbie passes to Chennebrun, it touches by an end with the river of Avre and extends between grounds belonging, on a side, in Jean Tremblay, ironmaster, and other, in Mathry Tremblay. The years which follow devote little by little the disappearance of their inheritance. In 1577, the monks institute an investigation "of control unit and incommodo" about the baronnie formerly held by Jacques Tremblay. Indeed Cisterciens which is the lords since centuries, put it at the biddings. December 13, 1577, Injury Marguerite Auvé, widow of Claude Gruel of the Hoop, high and powerful lord of Ventrouze (3), makes carry in Evreux of the offers to these biddings for Conturbis. But as of the following day it is still in Tremblay that the baronnie is allocated (4). The field will passerra of a branch of the Tremblay family to the other, sign revealing as much of the importance of this although solidarity binding the descendants of Gervais of Tremblay. The descendants of Jacques Tremblay are thus drawn aside from the field. As much the cause the prosperity of the ironmasters is known to us, as much those of the misfortune of the "Barons" escape to us.

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.
