bullet Martin PREVOST was baptized on 4 Jan 1611 in Montreuil-Sous-Bois, Ile De France, France. He was born about 4 Jan 1611 in Paris, France. He died on 27 Jan 1691 in Beauport, P. Q.. He was buried on 28 Jan 1691 in Beauport, P. Q.. Thanks to Aaron Roy of Colchester, Vermont for sending me the following information on Martin Prevost. This marriage is reportedly the first Franco marriage to a Native Indian woman. Source: from a passage in a chapter of a book entitled "Portraits of Pioneer Families", Vol I, by Robert Prevost, Editions Libre Expression, Montreal, 1993. Here it is in part. "Our sons will marry with your daughters and we will become one people;" thus said Samuel de Champlain to the native Indians in 1633. "You always say something to cheer us replied a feathered chief; "If this comes to be we will be very happy". But the first such marriage did not occur for 11 years, until November 3, 1644, when our ancestor, MARTIN PREVOST, married MARIE MANITOUABE8ICH, an indian. The number 8 in her name is not a printing error. In the first half of the 17th century, printers generally used "8" as a "w"; the letter "w" had not yet been borrowed from the Germanic languages. Martin Prevost had been born at Montreuil-Sous-Bois (in the outskirts of Paris) and was baptized on Jan 4, 1611. He was the son of Pierre Prevost and Charlotte Vie or Wien. He was the youngest of 5 boys. A sister who was born much later, married Gaston Guay from the same parish. One of their sons, Mathieu took the surname Gastonguay. It is not know for sure when Martin Prevost arrived in New France, (Quebec), but it is certain that he was in Quebec in December of 1639 as his signature is present on a marriage contract dated December 27, 1639. Did he cross the Atlantic at the same tie as the first Ursulines and Hospitalieres, who are known to have arrived on August l, 1639? It seems that this is very likely. the Company of 100 Associates, which had been established by Cardinal Richelieu to begin the colonization of Quebec, had probably recruited him in France. On arrival in Quebec his job was that of Clerk or Agent at the stores run by the Company at Cape Diamond, below the cliffs of Quebec. At that time Algonquin and Montagnais Indians often came to the installations at Cape Diamond. During the Autumn of 1637 an Indian couple with a least one son and one daughter, in thier search for safe haven, came to pass the winter in the near vicinity of the French. The French Missionaries baptized the 2 children. The boy was given the name of Francois, after Francois de Re, Sieur de Gand, who was to be his godfather. The girl was given the name Marie. It is not clear who her godfather was, but it is likely that it was Olivier Le Tardif who at the time, was Commissioner General of the Company of 100 Associates. He subsequently adopted her as his daughter. Le Tardif entrusted Marie to a very fine home, that of Guillaume Hubou and Marie Rollet. Marie Rollet was the widow of Louis Hebert who was the esteemed first colonist of Quebec. MARTIN PREVOST , no doubt was very much aware of the exotic charm of MARIE-OLIVIER MANITOUABE8ICH, for he saw her every day strolling by the Company store. Marie de L' Incarnation and Madame de la Peltrie who were the founders and heads of the Ursuline Convent, made certain that she continued her scholastic development. She was considereed quite attractive; also the missionaries said of her brother that he was a very fine child. On November 3, 1644 (Most genealogy documente give the date of Jan 4, 1644), father Barthelemy Vimont consecrated the marriage of Martin and Marie in the presence of Olivier Le Tardif and Guillaume Couillard, son-in-law of Louis Hebert. Two years earlier, in 1642, Vimont had celebrated the mass at the time of the establishment of the new colony at Montreal (Ville-Marie), Three months after their marriage, Martin obtained land located in the Seigneurie of Beauport, a little to the west of the Montmorency Falls, where today stands the church of Courville. The marriage lasted for 20 years. Marie died in 1665 and was widely mourned. They had 8 children, but only 4 survived through the marriage and establishment of families. These 4 were Louis, Jean, Jean-Baptiste and Therese. Louis married Francoise Gagnon in 1672 and then Marguerite Carreau in 1681. Jean who later took the name of his godfather, Paschal, married Francoise Cadieux in 1690. Jean-Baptiste married Marie-Anne Giroux in 1683 and then Genevieve Sedilot in 1712. Finally Therese married Michel Giroux. Louis had 9 children in his 2 marriages., Jean Paschal had one child, a boy who died the day of his birth. Jean-Baptiste had 14 children in his first marriage and 11 more in his second. Therese had 12 children fom her marriage to Michel Giroux. As a widower with 4 children, Martin did not delay in remarrying. On november 8 1665, he married Marie D' Abancourt who was widowed in two previous marriages. First to Jean Jolliet and then to Geoffroy Guillot. SHE WAS THE MOTHER OF LOUIS JOLLIET, "THE" LOUIS JOLLIET, "EXPLORER" who discovered the Mississippi River in 1683. It is not known exactly when Marie D' Abancourt died, but it is known that she dictated a will in December of 1678 and that she is not listed in the census of 1681. Martin Prevost, without a doubt, worn out by a lifetime of labor, entered the Hotel-Dieu hospital in July of 1690 and again in January of 1691. He participated in the successful defense of Quebec against the British siege and invasion led by Admiral Phipps. Martin died January 27, 1691 and was buried at Beauport the next day. Martin Prevost and Marie Manitouabe8ich were the ancestors of a large proportion of the current day Prevosts and Provosts in North America. A Plaque dedicated to their memory was unveiled in 1983 in Paris, France by Quebec Premier , Rene Levesque and erected on the baptistery of the church of St. Pierre et St. Paul at Montreuil-sous-Bois. From Paris the Metro goes to Mairerie de Montreuil and the church is nearby the station. *Note:The reader should be aware that there are several other Prevost, Provost families from France whom were also pioneers of Quebec. These other branches are not related to Martin Prevost. Parents: Pierre PREVOST and Charlotte VIEN.
