|Name Variation||Antoine Dionne
was also found as Antoine Dione. This name has morphed in Quebec
to include Dion and others. The Dionne quintriplets are
descendents of this man.
|Birth||1641||Antoine was born in 1641 at Montfort-la-Morille, Chartres, France. He was possibly the son of Jean GUYONNE dit SANSSOUCY.2,3,4,5
|According to some recent discoveries, Antoine
DIONNE (GUYONNE)-known as SANSSOUCY would be originating in the old
French province of Nivernais, today the department of Nievre. One
believed for a long time that name DIONNE came from the name of the
department of Yonne, in the north of Nievre, in the old French province
of Burgundy, close to Nivernais. However the department of Yonne is
thus named only since 1790. The Name DIONNE would come rather from the
old Gallic name "Divona" (or "Divonna"), derived from Latin Devos (god,
divine) and of the suffix - onna (source, fountain), which indicated
initially a "crowned source" or a "fountain of the gods", then a
locality located close to this source or this fountain. As in the Latin
word vivenda become "French meat", the "v" between two vowels were
erased and "A" final gave the "E" dumb.6 (translated from French)
|Marriage||1660||Antoine Dionne married Catherine Yvory 1660 in Bougogne, France.
According to certain sources, Antoine would have married Catherine (dau. of Jacob IVORY, born in 1644), February 24, 1660, in Coutran (Laferte in Champagne, France). But according to Voice's of Dionne, vol.13, No 3, Automne.1999, this marriage certificate could not be confirmed. It is known however that it arrived to New-France, with a small family, in 1663.
But http://www.hypernews.org/HyperNews/get/laliberte/7/34/1.html says that Antoine Dionne was the only one of that name to arrive from France to Canada. Antoine and Catherine Ivory had 12 children but only one son, Jean, had descendants. All others died young.
The first piece of land where our ancestors lived in America is now located at 2242 Chemin Royal (Royal road) in Saint-Pierre, Île d'Orléans.3,4,7
||During the summer 1663 Antoine DIONNE
dit-Sanssoucy, his Catherine wife and their 2 year old son
André, embark for New-France, undoubtedly on board the one of
these five ships which came to Quebec that year, that is to say the "Phoenix de Flessingue", June 30, "the Bull", after July 24, a vessel of Normandy, July 30, and two ships of Roy, "the Gold Eagle" and "the Garden of Holland", September 22. (cf Langlois, Mr., "List of the ships come to News-France, 1657 to 1665", the Ancestor, vol. 3, No 3, p. 3).
Although these five ships transported all of those people committed for New-France, our ancestors most likely made the crossing on board the one of the two last. In fact indeed the vessels of Roy, because of their strong tonnage, transported the majority of the immigrants. The date of arrival of these boats in addition would be brought closer that of November 22. It is known Antoine DIONNE was already present on the Island of Orleans on or before November 22, 1663 (cf Bulletin of Association Dionne of America, vol.1, No 2, pp 12-15).
Antoine is 22 years old and Catherine is 18.
|In 1667 Antoine appears on the census of New France as Antoine Dionne dit Sansoucy.
He is 26 years old, wife is 24 years old, they have one daughter
who is 2. They own one cow and 8 arpents of land on Ile
d'Crleans. Some of their land is cleared.
|Death||24 December 1721||Antoine died on 24 December 1721 at Isle de Orleans, Montmorency, Quebec. He was buried on Christmas Day.2,3 He was about 80 years old.|
