Daily Life in New France (www.chroniclesofamerica.com/ french/ daily_life_in_new_france.htm)
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.

Le Programme de recherche en démographie historique - Univeriste de Montreal


PRDH has no record of this marriage, however there are many records showing the baptisms of their children, the first one in 1647 in Trois-Rivieres.

"Certain genealogists assert that ancestor Lefebvre arrived in New France already married to Jeanne Aunois, but it is more likely that their marriage was celebrated at Trois-Rivieres about 1646. Neither the civil nor marriage record have been recovered. However, a contract recorded by Serverin Ameau, dated 2 September 1663, indicates that our ancestor was a native of Sceaux and that his father was also named Pierre."
