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.

Madeleine TRAHAN was the child of Guillaume TRAHAN and Madeleine BRUN


Jacques Léger dit La Rosette, born probably in France in c1668, served as a drummer in the sieur de Villeu's company of troupes de la marine at Fort St.-Joseph, Nashouat, on Rivière St.-Jean, during the early years of King William's War. (Genealogist Bona Arsenault says Jacques served in the Carignan-Salières Regiment, but Arsenault may have confused the regular regiment, which served in Canada, with the colonial detachments of Marine.) Around 1693, after his discharge from the King's service, Jacques married Madeleine, daughter of Guillaume Trahan, père and Madeleine Brun, at Port-Royal and took land on the south side of Rivière-au-Dauphin, above Port-Royal. Jacques and Madeleine had 11 children, including four sons, three of whom created families of their own.
