Marguerite MANCHON married Ancestor is complete!immigrant flag male ancestor Sebastien PROVENCHER-- Date: 22 January 1663 Place: Cap-de-la-Madeleine, Canada, New France
NOTE: First wife of Sebastien mentioned as Marguerite Manchon in second marriage to Marie Catherine Guillet -- Drouin Collection

Drouin Collection marriage records for Cap-de-la-Madeleine begin in 1673

"The entry of the marriage act of ancestor Sebastien in the civil records of Cap-de-la-Madeleine, as well as the contract drawn up by notary Louis Laurent on 22 January 1663, have vanished. These documents, which did exist, would have provided the name of our pioneer's parents for posterity, as well as their place of residence in the mother country."

Thomas J. Laforest
Our French-Canadian Ancestors : Volume V, Page 203

"... on 22 January (1663), Provencher presented himself at the home of the notary Louis Laurent, along with his dearly beloved, "King's Daughter" Marguerite Manchon, for the purpose of making a marriage contract. The religious ceremony in the tiny chapel of Sainte-Madeleine must not have been delayed since the couple's first child, Marie-Madeleine, probably was born in 1664... A disaster whicho our ancestors surely never forgot during their lifetime followed just a few days after the marriage contract was signed: the terrible earthquake of 5 February...
On 28 January 1688, there came the first great mourning in the family: Marguerite Manchon had died. She was buried at the age of fifty-one, in the small cemetery in front of the church of Cap-de-la-Madeleine. Sebastien remained a widower for three years."
