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.

  • Misc
    'We are unaware of almost everything about the life of Mery Blouin in France, except that he came from Saint-Pierre-d'Etusson, where he was born about 1641. The son of Andre Blouin and of Francois Bounin was not educated. In Canada, he dared to write his name only once... In addition, our man was also called 'Laviolette', an affectation which fell into oblivion with the death of its bearer.'

    Our French-Canadian Ancestors : ...

  • 1664 France to Canada
    '... it is probable that it was one of these sailing ships which transported Mery Blouin to the colony in 1664.'

    'According to the established custom, ancestor Blouin would live in the country as an indentured servant for three years, before being recognized as a full citizen.'
