Did You Know? Québec Généalogie - What is a 'dit/dite' name?  When the first settlers came to Québec from France it was a custom to add a 'dit' nickname to the surname. The English translation of 'dit' is 'said'. The Colonists of Nouvelle France added 'dit' names as distinguishers. A settler might have wanted to differentiate their family from their siblings by taking a 'dit' name that described the locale to which they had relocated. The acquiring of a 'dit' name might also be the result of a casual adoption, whereby the person wanted to honor the family who had raised them. Another reason was also to distinguish themselves by taking as a 'dit' name the town or village in France from which they originated. This custom ended around 1900 when people began using only one name, either the 'dit' nickname or their original surname.

Jacques MASSÉ dit BEAUMIER married flag female ancestor Marie-Catherine GUILLET-- Date: 18 November 1669 Place: , Québec Province, Canada
Le Programme de recherche en démographie historique - Univeriste de Montreal

Marie-Catherine GUILLET was the child of Pierre-Simon GUILLET dit LAJEUNESSE and Jeanne ST-PERE dite CHAMPOUX

NOTE: Marie Catherine Guillet is referred to as widow of Jacques Masse in her second marriage to Sebastien Provencher -- Drouin Collection

According to PRDH, a marriage contract was signed between Jacques Masse and Catherine Guillet at an undetermined place in Quebec, Canada in 1669.

"...on 18 November 1669 before notary Jean Cusson, he signed a marriage contract uniting his destiny to that of Marie-Catherine Guillet, daughter of Pierre Guillet and Jeanne de Saint-Pere, living in Cap-de-la-Madeleine. Catherine had been born at Quebec on 18 June 1656. Her father was a master carpenter and it was he who seems to have built most the first houses at Cap-de-la-Madeleine. In the marriage contract, Jacques is mentioned as being the son of Jacques Masse and Philippe David, from Saint-Pierre-Chausse (Chole or Cholet), in Anjou... At his marriage, for which the religious act is lost, Jacques was 28 years old (even though the census of 1666 gives him 30 years) and Catherine was but 13."
