Did You Know? Quebec - Did you know? In the French-speaking parishes of the Province of Quebec, lutins are considered as mischievous, fun-loving little spirits, which may be protecting or annoying household gods or demons, according to the treatment that they receive from the inmates of the house where they have chosen to dwell. It generally takes the form of a domestic pet, such as a dog, a cat, a bird, a rabbit, or even a reptile of the inoffensive species, or, again, rats and mice that have learned to become familiar with the members of a household.

Marguerite ABRAHAM married immigrant flag Joseph-Osanny NADEAU dit LAVIGNE-- Date: 6 November 1665 Place: Québec, Canada, New France
Le Programme de recherche en démographie historique - Univeriste de Montreal 


Drouin Collection records for Sainte-Famille begin in 1666.
According to PRDH, a marriage contract was signed in 1665 in an undetermined place in Quebec, Canada between Joseph Ozanie Nadeau and Marguerite Abraham. PRDH also indicates records of baptisms of their children, the first one in 1667 in Sainte-Famille.

"On Friday, 6 November 1665, Joseph-Ozanie Nadeau dit Lavigne, was at Quebec, in the house of the notary Duquet. Several witnesses had been summoned to mark the occasion. In civil law, the marriage contract always took on great importance. Even important people did not hesitate to travel to support their more common friends... Who was the future wife of Joseph-Ozanie? She was none other than Marguerite Abraham, a daughter of the king, born at Saint-Eustache de Paris, about 20 years old, daughter or Guillaume Abraham and of Denise Fleury... The day of the nuptial blessing was not recorded in the registry. We can assume that it was given by Father Thomas Morel, perhaps in the parish of Sainte-Famille. The sur name of Abraham implies that Marguerite was of Jewish origin."

"On 26 January 1678, at the residence of the widow, the notary Pierre Duquet had come on snowshoes to settle the terms of the marriage contract. The Breton Guillaume Chartier, in New France since 1674, so of Olivier and of Marie Cornet, about 29 years old, originally from Sainte-Marie de La Haie-Fouassiere, canton of Vertou, arrondissement of Nantes in Brittany, committed himself to marry Marguerite Abraham... At the church of Sainte-Famille on the island on the following Monday, 21 January, the pastor Lamy blessed this union in the presence of the witnesses Noel Forestier, Michel Enaud, Jean Jouanne and Isaac Pasquier dit Lavallee... This marriage had no descendants and seemed to be strained."
