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.

Mathieu dit La Citardy spelled his surname Brasseur and sometimes Brasseux and LeBrasseur, so he probably was not a kinsman of Pierre Brassaud/ Brassaux, who had come to the colony by c1691. Mathieu married Jeanne, teenage daughter of André Célestin dit Bellemère and Perrine Basile, at Port-Royal in c1702; Mathieu, interestingly, was 39 years older than his wife. They settled at Minas, where Jeanne gave Mathieu 11 children, including five sons who created families of their own.
