Exploring the Ancestry of Jacques BOURDON: Events, Pictures, and Documents

birth1645 Birth
5 June 1645
Rouen, France
BOURDON, JACQUES, process-server, clerk of court, and notary; baptized 5 June 1645 in the church of Saint-Godard at Rouen, son of Jean Bourdon and Marguerite Legris; buried 7 Aug. 1724 at Boucherville.

In our opinion, J.-Edmond Roy has wrongly identified Jacques Bourdon with the “J. Bourdon” who was a clerk in the court registry of the Conseil Souverain in 1664. It was rather at Montreal, in the autumn of 1666, that Bourdon began his career, as a process-server. But by 9 Oct. 1667 he had been dismissed from his office by Judge Charles-Joseph d’Ailleboust* Des Muceaux. Although he owned a few acres of land at Longueuil, he settled at Boucherville, where on 8 Feb. 1672 he married Marie Ménard and on 19 March 1673 bought from his father-in-law a piece of land measuring 2 arpents by 25. In 1681 he had only two acres under cultivation, and his live-stock consisted of one cow. It is true that since 1677 he had been acting as process-server, clerk of court, and notary of the Boucherville...Read MORE...
