|Father||**Adrien d'Abancour dit laCaille d. 26 May 1641|
|Mother||**Simone d'Orgeville d. 14 January 1649|
|Birth||circa 1618||Marie was born circa 1618. This date is using census information.1,2
|1635||Marie emmigrated to Canada around 1635 with her parents, when Marie was about 16 years old.2
|Marriage#1||9 October 1639||Marie d'Abancour married Jean Joliette 9 October 1639 in Notre Dame of Quebec, Quebec, Canada. They had at least fourchildren:
Marie Joliette bca 1648
Louis Jolliet born in 1645, died in 1700. This man was the explorer of the Mississippi.
Adrien bca 1643 and
Zacharie bca 1650.
It appears that they lived on the shores of Beaupré. The Bourdon map of 1641 records a piece of land co-owned by Simone d'Abancourt, mother of Marie, and Jean Jolliet her son-in-law, five kilometres from the Montmorency Falls, on the banks of the St-Lawrence.3,2
|Marriage #2||19 October 1651||Marie d'Abancour married **Godfroy Guillot dit Lavalet, son of **Jean Guillot and **Jeanne Coutin, 19 October 1651 in Quebec, Quebec, Canada. They had at least two daughters and a son:
Elizabeth who is followed further and
Louise who married Gabriel Gosslin and Mathurin Reneau. Dates not known. They also had a son, Jean b 26 Nov 1653. He married Marguerite Dusson in 1672. Jean died 12 July 1692 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.1,4
|Godfroy Guillot registered Adrien and Louis at the
Jesuit College therefore Godfroy and Marie must have been relatively
well off as the fees for College were quite expensive. After
graduation, Adrien became a leader of the 'coureurs des bois' and a
reputed military deputy in his era; in 1670, Talon sent him with Jean
Peré to investigate the copper deposits at Lake Superior. Louis
followed the profession of his brother and eventually was sent on a
major exploration mission himself and became the discoverer of the
Mississippi . Father Marquette was credited too much for this
exploration trip; his only contribution, but an important one, was to
write about it.
|On Aug 9, 1655 Godfroy signed an acknowledgement
of indebtedness to the estate of the deceased Pierre Delaunay for 60
livres with notary Audouart, probably in payment of some merchandise.
On April 15, 1659 he obtained some land at Château-Richer. On
February 2, 1660, Godfroy was confirmed at Château-Richer by
Monseigneur Laval, being one of eight celebration of general
confirmation organised by Mgr. Laval in 1660-62. Was Jean Guillot also
In August of 1660 his step-son Adrien Jolliet participated in an expedition to the Great Lakes. He was 17 and lived at Trois-Rivières. Louis Jolliet, aged 15, was then a cleric at the seminary of Québec. This was established in 1659 within the premises of the Jesuit College and preceded the foundation of the Quebec Seminary in 1668.
Guillot had to borrow six bushels of wheat to fulfill his tithe in 1662 (Aubert document; Aug 20, 1662) from the mill of Château-Richer. The rate of the tithe was 1/21 of the production of the land
An inventory was taken after the death of Godfroy Guillot on July 18, 1665 (Aubert) at Québec. The family lived at Château-Richer, and had probably done so since the spring of 1659.2
|Marriage #3||8 November 1665||Marie married Martin Provost on 8 Nov 1665 in Kebec (Quebec). She is listed as the widow of Godfroy Guillot.
Martin Prevost, b-1611, died January 26, 1691 was first married to Marie Oliver Sylvestre Manitouabewich, Huron or Algonquin Indian, b-1620 daughter Roch Manitouabewich and Outchibaha Manikoue.5
24 November 1678
|Marie died after 24 November 1678 and before the 1681 census.2|
