Notre-Dame de Fontenay, Poitou, France
From 'Our French Canadian Ancestors' Vol. 2 by Thomas J Laforest

'Our readers would be surprised to learn that the ancestor Pierre Michaud, for the better part of his life, carried the family name Michel. Michaud means 'little Michel.' Where did Pierre Michel come from? He was a Poitevan and originated from Fontenay-le-Comte, capital of the Department of the Vendee. The land surrounding this village, because of the excavations of flints and pot sherds, archaeologists believe to have been the home of prehistoric man, even before the time of Asterix the Gaul. It was only in 1242 that the specification of 'le-Comte' was added. Fontenay-le-Comte was a part of the Diocese of Maillezais for a long time but at the time of our ancestor, the episcopal seat was transferred to LaRochelle in Aunis by Pope Innocent X, in the year 1648. More than 30 people emigrated from Fontenay-le-Comte for Canada. Let's repeat the names of some of these: Jacques Bernier, Andre Bonnenfant, Jacques Manseau and...Read MORE...

MICHAUD - derived from MICHEL, from the Hebrew name 'Mikha'el' which means 'who is like God', evokes the Archangel Saint Michael who struck down Lucifer. Or, of 'Michot' which in language of oil indicated a man of not very open spirit. Pierre Michaud was born around 1637 in Notre-Dame, Fontenay-le-Comte, Vendée, France. Son of Antoine Michaud and Marie Train, he married Marie Ancelin-Asselin, daughter of René and Claire Rousselot, on October 2, 1667 in Château-Richer. Arriving in the country in 1656, he was hired by Jacques Pépin, a merchant from La Rochelle. He settled in Île-aux-Grues, then in Cap-St-Ignace. The date of his death, which occurred before the marriage of his daughter Elisabeth, on May 8, 1703, remains unknown.
