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.

Marie-Anne FAVREAU was the daughter of Pierre FAVREAU dit DESLAURIERS and Marie BENOIT

"After the death of his wife, Antoine Emery could have cursed his fate and folded his arms. At the age of 44, he decided that he still had a long way to go and that he should begin again."

"He met Marie-Anne Favreau, born about 1672, daughter of Pierer and of Marie Benoit. Antoine and Pierre knew each other in the Carignan Regiment since they were members of the same company. Widower Coderre proposed marriage to Marie-Anne. She accepted on Saturday, 5 June 1688, in the presence of the notary Moreau at the home of her parents who were living on the ile Saint-Joseph de Boucherville... Alas! this religious act is not to be found in our parish registries..."

"With Marie-Anne Favreau, he had enriched the country by nine new members: Antoine, Marie-Anne, Louis, Catherine, Joseph, Jean, Jacques, Francois and Gabriel. All reached adulthood..."
