  • Marriage: Simone PICHENEAU before 1592 in Gallardon, France
  • Died: 1610-1612, Gallardon, France

bullet  General Notes:

Information on this family is from Pelletier family web site, based on parish registers of St. Peter. St. Paul churchin Gallardon, and Nicolas's apprenticeship contract.

It appears that Francois died when Nicholas was rather young - if 14 is a young age to be apprenticed. Probably this prevented Nicolas' father from teaching him his own trade, whatever that was. Could have been carpentry for all we know. Four years seems like a rather short time for an apprenticeship. Nicolas' mother did contract for his apprenticship within at most two years, maybe soon after his father's death. She may have been left short of means to support her family.

Death/ burial registers do not exist from that time, but the frequent reuse of the same names among the children of this family suggests a large number of the children died.

Pelletier was a common name in the small city of Gallardon at the time. Probably Francois' family went back a ways in that city.


Francois married Simone PICHENEAU before 1592 in Gallardon, France.
