Did You Know? Quebec - Did you know? The habitant had a profound belief in the supernatural, and was prone to associate miraculous handiwork with every unusual event. New France was full of legends and weird tales. Most of these legends had some moral lessons attached to them: they were tales of disaster which came from disobeying the teachings of the Church or of miraculous escape from death or perdition due to the supernatural rewarding of righteousness.

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.”
