Pierre Godin and Jeanne Rousseliere

"Claude's son Pierre, born at Châtillon-sur-Seine in May 1630, emigrated to New France in his early 20s. He reached Montréal in September 1653 and married Jeanne, daughter of Louis Rousseliere, in October 1654. Like his father, Pierre dit Châtillon was a master carpenter. He and Jeanne left Montréal in 1664, lived at Charlesbourg near Québec, where they were counted in 1666, then at Québec, returned to Montréal in the 1670s, and went to Chignecto in Acadia probably with the sieur de La Valliere, the seigneur of Beaubassin, between June 1676 and June 1677 "to continue the construction work already under way." Pierre and his family lived with Roger Caissie at Chignecto while Pierre plied his trade. The family also owned land in the Port-Royal valley. Pierre died either at Port-Royal or Chignecto in the 1680s in his 50s. He and Jeanne had nine children, including four sons, three of whom created families of their own. Their daughters married into the Magdelaine dit La Douceur, Fortin dit LaGrandeur, Nepveu, Henry, and Martin families. Nearly all of these daughters settled in the St. Lawrence valley. The one exception was youngest daughter Anne dit Châtillon, born at Montréal in January 1672, who married Pierre, son of Pierre Martin of Port-Royal and an Indian woman, probably at Port-Royal in c1686. In the early 1700s, Pierre and Anne moved to Île St.-Jean, today's Prince Edward Island, probably to escape British authority in Nova Scotia. Anne died at St.-Pierre-du-Nord on the island in February 1742; she was 70 years old. "
