Pierre is said to have been born in 1652 at Libourne, Bordeaux, France. The location of his birth is from the marriage record but the date of birth, although widely published, does not seem to be documented. Some listings in the IGI give his date of birth as "about 1671", "about 1675" etc. At the time of his marriage he was in the military. My guess is that he was part of the force put in place by the King of France after the Lachine Massacre. Some later birth records of his children indicate he became a labourer after he left the military. His parents were François SAUVÉ and Marie MALLERET. His father François was a master tailor. Pierre died May 4th, 1737 at Bout-de-l'Ile, Montréal. According to Jean Sauvé Pierre was "Inhumé sous l'église.."

Marie-Renée was born June 18, 1677 at Montréal. Her parents were Jean MICHEL and Marie Marchesseau. She passed away November 19th, 1750.
