LES BAS POITEVINS DU CANADA

“La Revue de Bas-Poitou, liv. I et III, 1919, compiled by Paul Beauchet-Filleau,Chef-Boutonne, http://collections.banq.qc.ca/ark:/52327/3246665

The term Les Bas-Poitevins refers to the portion of settlers to New France who originated from the Province of Poitou.

The lists below are from an annotated translated extract of an extract from “La Revue de Bas-Poitou, liv. I et III, 1919, compiled by Paul Beauchet-Filleau,Chef-Boutonne.  Please note that this is not to be considered an original or primary source, but a jumping off point for further corroboration of details. 

The original of this extract is available via http://collections.banq.qc.ca/ark:/52327/3246665.  

M G Clouzot, one of the primary collaborators of the original work referenced, was from the Vendée region himself, particularly Niort, and likely would have had a personal interest in gathering information relating to other families who settled early in the establishment of New France and who originated from the same region of France. 

Column headings are clearly set out per section, however, the following items should be noted:

  • Groupings, grouping headings and order within each grouping are true to the original extract, but presented in table format for clarity. Note that there are sometimes more than one table for the same area (i.e. Luçon)
  • Pay particular attention to dit names (new to French Canadian naming? See here where I discuss naming conventions in France and French-Canada)
  • Years of birth are cautioned by M. Beauchet-Fillieu, who states that other records tend to contradict the given birth years within a 5 year margin
  • Note that the surname of the father is not given, as it is the same as the migrant, however the maiden name of the mother is provided
  • Many entries were poorly written or hard to read, and so I have added an additional column to separate out Mr. Beauchet-Filleau’s alternative suggestions for locality names.
  • Some entries had additional information regarding the parents or spouses. This is included in the “notes” column where that information is provided.  
  • Annotations by KinQuery are in italics, all other text is as translated from the source document.

“People from Lower Poiteau to Canada”

“My dear Director

Related by M. G. Clouzot, of Niort (Vendée), with Canadian scholar,  M. Godbout, who have undertaken to put together everything that might be of interest for the descendants of the first French immigrants to Canada, the last lists of arrivals to Canada from 1608 to 1765 and who are classified in four categories: the first who came from Poiteau, without additional info; the second form those originating from the diocese of Maillezais; the third from the diocese of Luçon; and the fourth those from the diocese of Poitiers.

The lists include the date of their arrival to Canada, followed by their place of origination, identification (although sadly many times the lists are poorly written or hard to read).  Following the name of the individual is the date of birth, although the exactitude is questionable, as the documents that allow for confirmation of these dates often have a difference of 5 years or more.  Finally they have indicated the names of the father and mother, often these indications are lacking.  M. Godbout would like to have diverse information on these immigrants, of their families, their connections, their ancestors, occupations, where they lives, their motives for leaving their places of birth, etc., etc.  I do not think it necessary to insist on the interest which could result from the information provided by these lists both for the descendants of these immigrants and for those of their parents who remained in France, if there are any still; also, not being able, because of the work of the Dictionary of the Poitou Families, to give to my correspondent a very effective collaboration and persuaded that a work of a large scale also can arrive at a satisfactory result only by a community of a people of good will I will allow myself to submit to your readers:  First, the list of original names of the Vendee; 2nd of the names of the crippled or poorly read parishes and where I was unable to identify from the names of the people originally given. 

Any of your readers who would like to take on this work could send me the fruit of their researches, or, if they prefer, they could send them directly to the author, at the following address: Monsieur P.A. Godbout, “La Resurrection”, Rosemont à Montreal. 

Please accept, my dear director, the expresson of my most devoted feelings, 

Paul Beauchet-Filleau, Chef-Boutonne, le 29 Juillet 1918″
