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.

Etienne, son of Pierre and of Francoise Prieur, was a thirty year old carpenter originally from Saint-Laurent-de-la-Barriere, in Saintonge (Charente-Maritime). He married fifteen year old Marie, daughter of Gaspard Boucher and of Nicole Lemere. Marie was the sister of Pierre Boucher, the future governor of Trois-Rivieres."

1665 - Death
Death found at Immaculee Conception, Trois Rivieres in Drouin Collection

15 Sept 1665

Etienne Lafond (also called Stephanus Lafond in body of death record)

'The civil registry of the three-rivers parish may have had some deficiencies more or less, but on 15 September 1665 the missionary priest did not fail to record the death of our ancestor Etienne. Written in Latin, the inscription reads: 'Repentia et improvisia mort abiit.' That is to say that the passage from this life to the next is sudden and often unexpected... Etienne was about fifty years old and, since he was a man of uncommon stature and quality, his mortal remains were interred in the church itself.'
