  • Death: Jean Baptiste Godefroy died on March 26, 1678, at age ~70, in Trois Rivieres, St Maurice, Quebec, Canada.
  • Note: Originating from Normandy, JEAN GODEFROY de LINTOT... arrived in New France in 1626 with his brother, Thomas Godefroy de Normanville. It is told that Thomas had an uncommon ability to learn the native languages and was a brilliant and impressive interpreter. He spoke Iroquois, Huron and Algonquin fluently.

    Jean Godefroy was first known as a fur trader living in the woods with the Indians and as an interpreter under the government of Champlain. During the British occupation of the Kirkes, the Godefroy brothers stayed with the Hurons for three years from 1629 to 1632. Jean Godefroy subsequently established himself in Trois Rivières in 1634.

    In December of 1637, he received a tract of land in Trois Rivières, a seigneury, where he would oversee the land clearing for cultivation and encourage settlers. Jean Godefroy was part of a family alliance of provincial noblemen from the Caën area of Normandy who arrived in the summer of 1636. The families of Godefroy, LeGardeur, LeNeuf du Hérisson brought with them Marie LeNeuf du Hérisson who would become the bride of Jean Godefroy de Lintot in December of that year. These families were merchants and entrepreneurs intent on establishing a successful fur trading enterprise with the Indians. To that end, Jean Godefroy was an interpreter.

    From 1646 on, he was a member of the Communauté des Habitants which was founded, in part, by his brother-in-law Michel LeNeuf, along with assorted members of his extended family... also known as le pacte de familles.

    Jean Godefroy and Marie LeNeuf had nine sons and two daughters. Their first child, Michel born in October 1637 is considered to be the first white child born in Trois-Rivières. The second son, Louis born in 1639, was a procurer for the King of France. Third son, Jacques de Vieuxpont, born in 1641, was a renown interpreter and fur merchant. In 1661, he left on a fur-trading mission with another Frenchman and some thirty Indians. On the way, they were attacked by of band of about eighty Iroquois who they resisted for more than two days. In the end, he fell to the Iroquois gunfire. Only one of his companions, an Indian, survived the attack. The Iroquois lost about a third of their party.

    Daughter, Jeanne born in 1644 joined the Ursulines in Quebec. The second daughter, Marie-Reine (Renée), was born in 1652 and married Pierre Boulanger in 1677.

    On Intendant Jean Talon's first census in 1666, Jean Godefroy de Lintot was listed as 58 years old and living in the Trois-Rivières area as an habitant and seigneur from Normandy. Living in the same household were his wife, Marie du Hérisson, aged 55, a midwife. Also living with him were his youngest 6 children. Elder sons lived nearby, one of them Louis Godefroy de Normanville, a seigneur in his own right.

    Jean Godefroy's brother, Thomas, had been killed by the Iroquois in 1652, in 1661, Jean Godefroy's 20-year old son, Jacques, was also killed by the Iroquois. The price of fur trading in North America was indeed high.

    Jean Godefroy died in 1681 in Trois-Rivières, his wife died in 1688.

Thomas Godefroy

M, b. circa 1610, d. August 1652

Parents

Biography

  • Birth: Thomas Godefroy was born circa 1610 in Seine Maritime, Haute-Normandie, France.
  • Death: He died in August 1652 in Québec, Canada.
  • Note: GODEFROY DE NORMANVILLE, THOMAS, interpreter, brother of Jean Godefroy de Lintot; b. c. 1610 at Lintot in the district of Caux, Normandy; d. 1652 in the Iroquois country.

    Thomas Godefroy arrived in New France about 1626, together with his elder brother, Jean Godefroy. After serving Champlain as an interpreter, he went to live among the Indians while Quebec was under English occupation from 1629 to 1632. When the French returned he settled in the Trois-Rivières region, as did his brother and his relative Jean-Paul Godefroy. But, unlike these, he continued to act as an interpreter.

    Normanville was one of those go-betweens or interpreters (truchements) of the early days of New France who were so well able to reconcile the interests of business and religion. One often finds him assisting and even replacing missionaries; he catechized Indians, led them in prayer, sometimes even baptized them. Speaking Algonkian, Iroquoian, and in all probability Huron, he rendered invaluable service to the colony.

    His bravery was well known. On three occasions he fell into the hands of the Iroquois: in February 1641, when he was captured with his companion, François Marguerie; in the spring of 1648, and in August 1652. On the first two occasions he escaped without too much difficulty. In 1652, however, the Iroquois carried him away to their cantons and killed him.

    In 1641-1642, Normanville had accompanied Father Paul Le Jeune to France on a trip made for “the common and public weal of the colony,” and in 1651, he, along with Father Buteux and three other Frenchmen, had been the first white men to travel up the St. Maurice River as far as the territory of the Attikamegues.
