"At this stage of the research, the first hypotesis would be that Louis would be an adopted son of Joseph Gaudreau and Marie-Louise Constantineau who were established since 1758 at the foot of the mountain in Montreal.The second hypothesis would presume that Louis Chavaudreuil dit Gaudreau is the grandson of Ursin Dutalme dit Chavaudry.Notary Besquet stipulates that she is the widow of Jacques Bourre dit Lachapelle and that she had a son named Jean-Baptiste Chavaudray from her first marriage.Born in 1729, Jean-Baptiste Chavaudray is the only son of Ursin Chavaudray with the possibility of having a descendant born in 1748.The third hypothesis would suppose that Louis would be a descendant of the Marquis de Vaudreuil.The last hypothesis would presume that he is of native Indian adoption.

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.
