"Jacques Archambault and Francoise Tourault were married in France and brought 7 children into the world before coming to New France... Jacques and Francoise were both natives of Dompierre-sur-Mer, a village in the canton and arrondissement of La Rochelle, in the Charente-Maritime, previously the French province of Aunis. They lived at Dompierre, but more precisely in a hamlet called Lardilliere."

"Jacques, son of Antoine Archambault and of Renee Ouvrard, was at first a laborer and also probably a wine maker, since he sold three barrels of white wine to Jerome Bonnevie, on 15 August 1637."

"Jacques and Francoise were married on 24 January 1629 at Saint-Philibert du Pont-Charault, a locality in Chantonnay, arrondissement of La Roche-sur-Von, in the Vendee, the former province of Poitou."

"...The 7 children of the second generation...were all born in France. Only Louise did not cross the Atlantic, because she died before her family left France. The others came to New France with their parents. They arrived at Quebec, with Pierre Legardeur de Repentigny, director of the new Compagnie des Habitants; perhaps on 5 August 1645; but more probably on 23 September 1646."
