Puce  Notes générales :

One of the pioneers of Beaupré, and later the first seigneur of Bonsecours, L'Islet, Québec. Born in 1612 in Saint-Pierre, village and church of Seez in the south of Normandy, he joined a group of pioneers lead by Robert Giffard.
In the 1667 census, he is shown as having 50 arpents under cultivation and 13 beasts in his stable. He was later the captain of police for Beaupré. In 1677, he became a seigneur. Came to Québec in 1636 (1634?) and married in 1637. RecordsofNotre-Dame-de-Québec, marriages shows François and Marie Guyon had two children married there, Marie Madeleine & Nicolas (who married Marie de Rainville).

FIRST DOUBLE MARRIAGE IN QUÉBEC on 27 July 1636, François Bélanger was mentioned for the first time in New-France: He was a witness at the signing of the marriage contract of Robert Drouin and the ten year old Anne Cloutier. His bold signature denoted a degree of education superior to that of the average settler. On 12 July of the following year, François himself took a wife. His union with the thirteen year old Marie Guyon, daughter of Jean and Mathurine Robin, was blessed by Father Charles Lallemant, acting as the curate of Notre-Dame-des-Anges. The marriage act, drawn up in 1640, tells us that François was a mason by trade. That same morning, at the same place, Anne Cloutier and Robert Drouin were united in a church wedding delayed because of her age. This was the first double marriage ceremony celebrated in QUÉBEC.
