  • Note: LOUIS HEBERT
    RENOWNED AS FIRST CANADIAN COLONIST
    YOUR ANCESTOR
    Ed. Note: This short history is an extract from Volume 3 of the “Red Druin” set,
    known more formally as the Dictionnaire National des Canadiens Français by
    Gabriel Drouin.
    Louis Hebert is the head of the first family that settled at Quebec, "the first Canadian colonist." Louis
    Hebert's life is part of the history of the country. It is he who, after Champlain, provided the greatest
    share in the establishment of Quebec.
    Louis Hebert, as the first colonist of Quebec, had preceded the Recollets (missionaries) at this location,
    not in building structures but in clearing lands on which he had the intention of settling.
    This is what historian Faillon, in his Histoire de la colonie Français en Canada, tells us about this noted
    individual whom you count among your ancestors. "Following a miserable if not to say cruel design, the
    various societies of merchants which had gone to settle at Quebec had not cleared, after twenty-two
    years, one arpent and a half of land, in Champlain's testimony, and had never wanted to give the
    inhabitants the means to cultivate their lands. "One of the inhabitants, however, Louis Hebert,
    received, shortly after his arrival, a concession of land which he undertook to clear for planting the
    following spring. Hebert, who owned ten arpents, was the only person who could provide for himself
    and his family.
    "It had been on the insistence of Champlain that in 1617 Louis Hebert decided to go to Canada with his
    family. Perhaps, in order to make the associates more easily consent to receive this first colonist,
    Champlain cited another motive of public utility more likely to make an impression on these interested
    merchants. Hebert was an apothecary and therefore could become useful to these gentlemen's
    employees. Hebert justified Champlain's hopes in being the first in Canada, to apply himself to
    agriculture."
    On the concession of land he had obtained, your ancestor, Louis Hebert, built a modest lodging: the
    lower part of the edifice was of stone and the gable of wood. An interesting engraving reproduced
    [below] shows first of all the "Habitation" built by the different companies. What interests us especially
    is your ancestor Louis Hebert's house on the cliff.
    Speaking of the pioneer, Louis Hebert, one historian says of him: "You can call him the Abraham of the
    colony, the father of the living and the believers, his posterity has been so numerous that it produced
    many officers, of the robe and of the sword, merchants adept at trading, some very worthy ecclesiastics;
    in addition, a great number of Christian colonists many of whom have suffered much while others were
    killed by the natives for the benefit of the country."
    Hebert numbers among his many descendants some of the most illustrious families of Canada: Joliette,
    De Lery, De Ramesay, Fournier, and of no less illustrious individuals, the Bishops Taschereau, Blanchet,
    and Tache.
    The third centenary of the arrival in the country of your ancestor, Louis Hebert, was celebrated with
    great fanfare at Quebec in 1917. His descendants were invited to attend the feast. On this occasion a
    monument to him was erected at Quebec which his descendants must not overlook: that is why it is
    being reproduced [above].

Simon Pajot

M, b. November 9, 1513, d. November 19, 1553

Parents

Family: Jehanne Guerineau (b. circa 1521, d. October 3, 1572)

Biography

  • Birth: Simon Pajot was born on November 9, 1513 in Paris, Paris, Ile-de-France, France.
  • Death: He died on November 19, 1553, at age 40, in Paris, Paris, Ile-de-France, France.
  • Occupation: He was a Candle Maker.
  • Note: About the middle of sixteenth century,in the vicinity of the church Saint-Gervais, there lived a candlestick maker named Simon Pajot. He belonged to a family of the Parisian middle-class and had ten bothers and sisters. He was married with Jeanne Guerineau. She gave him four sons and two daughters. However his principal merit, in our eyes, was to have been the grandfather of two of the first Canadian colonists, but he hardly suspected it when he died in 1563. Although he left a young child, Jean, approximately 13 years old, he had, as a father of family, time to provide the others with assured trades or alliances. The elder Guillaume, married Marguerite of Boissière, and fathered two girls Jeanne and Marie. He was, accoding to the tradition, chancellor of tallow and middle-class man of Paris. The second Hughes, called such to be distinguished from a first cousin who had the same first name and same trade, married Barbe Mallardot, goint on to have seven children.

    The elder of those, Guillaume, became the future notary in Châtelet, (has which we owe several interesting acts?). The third son, Isaac, then of 17 years, future candlestick maker, was to marry Cahterine Gaude and to be father of two girls Catherine and Claude; this one, by her marriage to Jean de Biencourt, sior of Poutricourt, was going to join her family to nobility and history. As for the two girls of Simon Pajot, one, Jeanne, had married Mathieu Bedeau who, also, was a candlestick maker, and the other, Jacqueline, already twice widowed, was remarried in 1564 to Nicolas Hébert, apothecary and grocer. Though her hsband did not work in tallow, she did not, by this third marriage deviate from the family tradition: her uncle Étienne Pajot was an apothecary and her aunt Jeanne Pajot had married a grocer.

    All the family ssemed very close; with the death of the patriarch, they grouped around his widow Jeanne Guerineau. The division of his estate was done without discussion; he left revenues and several houses: that of the Notre-Dame image, street of Joury; two contigous houses, one street of the Fig tree and the other on the corner of this street and of the street of Joury, while going towards St-Paul and finally a country house surrounded by vines at Saint-Mandé. Two batches were made, but the property of the houses remained undivided between the widow and the minor offspring and the older ones. A fifth house soon was added to the others: that of d'amour Dieu, located within the Old Cemetery of St-Jean. Jeanne Guerineau and her son Hugues acquired it, on January 28, 1568, to make their residence in it, in exchange of 500 Pounds and an annual rent of 200 Pounds that had yielded a few years before to them by Jean de Peiras, usher in Châtelet, and Nicole Tartarin, his wife.

    It is in this house that, on October 3, 1572, Jeanne Guerineau, had the neighbor, notary Puthomme came, and dictated her last will to him. After having chosen to be buried "in the chruch Saint-Gervais,in the vault of Carbonne, she bequeaths her goods to her son Jean approximately 23 years old, who lived with her and who holds the occupation of wood merchant. To avoid any difficulty in the division which her death would create, she specifies that "all the wood of chesne, water, house as far as can be seen", belongs to this son. She aknowledges her grandchildren, at least some of them: thus the children of Isaac, of Jeanne and Jacqueline share the sum of 1,200 Pounds tounaments "for ayder with the pouveoyer in marriage or differntlly and so that those children took God for it." Lastly, she acknowledges her Hébert kin, a great respect by choosing him executor. A little later the grandmother died and, on October 16, Nicolas Hébert drew up the inventory of the goods from her estate.
