We next meet Jean-Baptiste Villain at Montreal. On 18 Oct. 1670 he was present as cousin of the fiancée at the signing of the private marriage contract concluded between Mathurin Bernier, a native of Bessay (near Luçon), and Jeanne Villain, “daughter of Jean Villain and of the late Jeanne Barbé, her father and mother, of the parish of Saint-Jacques-la-Boucherie in Paris.” Ten days later the parish priest of Notre-Dame in Montreal drew up the marriage certificate of the Berniers; in it Jeanne Villain is called “daughter of Jean Villain, master gold- and silversmith in Paris, and of Jeanne Barbé.”
