The distinguished guests were Jean de Lauzon, Governor of New France; Father Francois Lemercier, head of the Jesuits; the Normand priest Lean Lesueur, chaplain of the Hotel-Dieu; Anne Gasnier, widow of Jean Clement, Sieur DuVault; Denis-Joseph Ruette, Sieur d'Auteuil, son-in-law of Anne Gasnier; Jean Bourdon from Rouen, the administrator of the Communaute des Habitants of New France; Seigneur, the Venerable Guillaume Couillard, bourgeois; Louis Couillard, Seigneur for part of the Ile aux Oies; and Martin Grouvel."

"Who was the future bride? Marie-Madeleine Francois or Lefrancois, who had been in the country for a short time, appeared as a worthy 21 year old orphan. Her late father Squire Isaac Francois had been the Captain of a company of light horse cavalry in France, obviously a nobleman. Her mother was named Esther Paigne. Marie-Madeleine was born in Lorraine, about 1633."

A brilliant citizen from Batiscan, the widower of Marie Richard since 31 May 1695, the father of seven children, a Normand by origin, Francois Fafard, 60 years old, entered the heart of the widow Thibault... In early spring, on 8 April 1696, Madeleine and Francois were married a second time, at Chateau-Richer... The new Lefrancois-Fafard couple moved to Batiscan..."
