This is their story

Mathurin Meunier, also known as Lemonnier, Monier, and Meusnier, was born 20 Apr 1619, and baptized 22 Apr 1619 at St-Lambert de Clermont, France, son of René Lemonnier and Marie Lemoux.

She was the daughter of Jean Fafard and Elisabeth Thibout, born sometime between 1621 and 1622. [3]Françoise is aged 25 at her marriage to Mathurin in 1647, likely the most reliable record pertaining to her age.

20 Apr 1644, on his 25th birthday, Mathurin signed a contract notarized by Pierre Teuleron in La Rochelle, France, for employment by Jérome Le Royer de La Dauversière, head of the Société Notre-Dame de Montréal. This job required Mathurin to travel to New France, specifically, to the town of Montreal, where he would perform digging work under Paul de Chomedey sieur de Maisonneuve for a period of five years. Many of our ancestors paid their way to the New World by hiring themselves out before ever setting foot on its soil.

In Oct 1647, a ship arrived in Montreal with Chomedey sieur de Maisonneuve. Sieur de Maisonneuve, a French aristocrat, was also hired by Jérome Le Royer de La Dauversière, to lead the colonists at Montreal and to build a society mission on the the Isle of Montreal. It’s not certain if Mathurin had arrived earlier, or if he came over at the same time. If he did arrive aboard the ship, then he arrived on the same ship with his future bride, Françoise. Where Mathurin had the job of digging, Françoise had the job of marrying her future husband, for she was a Filles à marier or “marriageable girl” brought over for the sole purpose of becoming a wife. In New France in 1647, men outnumbered women 6 to 1, so officials in France recruited single women to enter into marriage contracts and then make the voyage to settle in the new world. Place an emphasis on then. These ladies came over with no idea whom they were marrying, just that they must marry soon after arriving.

Less than one month later, on 3 Nov 1647, in the first marriage of whites recorded in Montreal, Mathurin Lemonnier, aged 28, and Françoise Faffart, aged 25, were married at Notre-Dame-de-Montreal, in the presence of Chomedey sieur de Maisonneuve, Gilbert Barbier Lenivernais, and Jean Destpere Legastinois.

This was the start of Montreal!

On 24 Nov 1648, just like clockwork, Mathurin and Françoise welcomed the first white child recorded as born in Montreal, Barbe.

On 03 Dec 1649, exactly one year from the death of their first child, Mathurin and Françoise had twin boys, Mathurin and Charles [9]Institut généalogique Drouin, Le LAFRANCE, acte 39436, citing image d1p_11000014.jpg; last accessed 23 Nov 2020.

Finally, on 8 Jan 1651, Jean breached Françoise womb and entered the world. [11]Institut généalogique Drouin, Le LAFRANCE, acte 87252, citing image d1p_25390125.jpg; last accessed 23 Nov 2020.

Why the couple had relocated temporarily to Trois-Rivières is not known, but by this time, Mathurin would be free from his engagement with Jérome Le Royer de La Dauversière.
