The Genealogy of Jacques & Related Families
including The Mayotte (Maillot, Mailhot) Family
of Dickinson County, Michigan

*An index of pages in this Genealogy follows the narrative*
Please take your time & enjoy yourself while visiting, these pages were put together with much love and effort from the contributors.
New items are added periodically,
please come back again and again!

The founder of our family in Canada was Louis Jacques. He was born at St-Michel d’Amiens, Somme, Province of Picardie, France, 23 April 1664 and baptized 24 April 1664. He was the son of Nicolas JACQUES (born 1627, Franleu, France, died 1 May 1681 at St-Michel d’Amiens) [Franleu is near Moyenneville, in the area of Abbeville sur la Somme, Picardie]; and Marie SOYER (born abt. 1622 in Picardie, France; died 5 September 1676, at St-Michel d’Amiens. Marie was the daughter of Michel SOYER and Marie DuMONSTIER. Nicolas and Marie were married 27 May 1647, at St-Michel d’Amiens. (Please read the included (link below) story of Louis Jacques written by François Jacques, priest, published in Nos Ancestres. This gives very interesting information about Nicolas and Marie as well Louis.)

Scenes of Amiens

Louis JACQUES came to Canada in 1680 and is the only Jacques who came from France and raised a family in Canada. All the Jacques of Canada are, therefore, descendants of Louis Jacques.

La Nouvelle France
A short history of New France

Louis Jacques was married on 17 May 1688 at the Cathédrale Notre-Dame, Québec, to Antoinette Le ROUX (born 27 July 1669, at Beauport, Québec), who was a daughter of François Le ROUX dit CARDINAL and Marie RENAUD.

My thanks to Bob Jacques of Québec and Renée Cummings of the Quebec Research List at Rootsweb for these records

François Le ROUX was a native of Senille, diocese of Poitiers, Province of Poitou France. His parents were Jean Le ROUX and Jeanne LEBLANC. Francois and Marie were married 25 October 1668. 

Francois Le Roux dit Cardinal  arrived in Québec 12 September 1665 on the ship St-Sébastien with soldiers of the company La Fouille of the Regiment of the Carignan-Salières.

Marie RENAUD was a native of St. Marceau, diocese of Orleans, France. She was a Fille du roi -- a daughter of the king. Young women "recruited" by the government of Louis XIV and provided with funds from the royal treasury, clothing and in some cases dowries to come to New France in the mid-1600s. In 1639 the population of Québec was approximately 139, and marriageable young women were needed to help colonize New France. The women were mostly orphans, young widows, with a few from the merchant and noble classes and of good repute. When the women arrived in Québec they were placed with nuns, widows, or families. They were expected to choose husbands from the men already in the colonies. All descendants of the first French to come to Québec have at least one, and sometimes many Filles du roi in their lineage.

Louis and Antoinette had ten children, all born at Québec. The family moved to Bourg-Royal (Charlesbourg), a village ten miles from Québec. In the beginning Louis and Antoinette lived in the house of Louis’ employer François HAZEUR and in 1694 Louis was able to build his own house. It was at Charlesbourg that Louis Jacques died 22 February 1735, at the age of seventy-one. Antoinette died at Charlesbourg 17 April 1739, at the age of seventy. Louis was interred in the Chapel of the Congregation in Charlesbourg, as he was the premier member of this parish (See letter from La Sociétè historique de Charlesbourg).
