LECLERC - agglutination of 'the clerk', from old French, means anyone who knows how to read and write, making a living. Nickname given to a clerk, a secretary, an assistant to a lawyer, or a civil servant. Jean Leclerc was baptized on August 24, 1635 in St-Rémy, Dieppe, Seine-Maritime, France. Son of Jean Leclerc and Pierrette Brunel, he married Marie Blanquet, daughter of Adrien and Catherine Lafrenière, around 1657 in Dieppe, France. From this union were born 9 children. Arriving in the country in 1660 with his wife and son Pierre, this cloth weaver settled in Sainte-Famille, Île d'Orléans. He carried out several exchanges and rentals of land and other goods there. Back in France in 1679, he was still there when his daughter Anne married on February 2, 1680. He apparently died there in 1680, since his wife was widowed in the 1681 census.
