  • Note: Mathurin Dube Biography

    Mathurin Dubé

    Like many immigrants to New France, Mathurin was probably shipped to the port of La Rochelle on one of the merchant ships that provided the link between the metropolis and its colony at that time. The recruiters of Poitou had a penchant for New France. Indeed, between 1608 and 1700, 569 Poitevins immigrated there. Mathurin is the only come from La Chapelle-Thémer, but there were 45 from Fontenay le Comte, capital of Bas-Poitou, south of the Vendee, about fifteen kilometers from the birthplace of our ancestor. Mathurin was an immigrant who contracted normally, like many of his contemporaries, hoped to improve his lot by crossing the Atlantic.

    There is no consensus among researchers about the date of arrival of Mathurin in New France. According to genealogist Michel Langlois, Mathurin Dubé "comes as the country started in 1663. "Most of the time immigrants were soldiers, sailors, craftsmen and poor people, some of whom committed to an employer by signing a contract that bound them to him for three years. Their contract ended, they could return to France or stay in America, carrying on business or own land. The agreement of Mathurin could not be found despite the research done in the Archives of the Charente-Maritime and Vendee. As Mathurin was granted a land in 1667, we can assume that his arrival back at least to the summer of 1664.

    In the census of 1666 found the first mention of the name of Mathurin, identified simply as "the appointed Dube, aged 33, from the twelve domestic servants in Bishop Laval in the manor of Beaupré . These servants, aged 18-40 years, practiced the trade of farmer, carpenter, mason, tailor and shoemaker. Called "Travaillan" as six of his companions, Mathurin was employed to work on the farm on the former estate near the creek that runs alongside the mill built in 1695 on the orders of Bishop Laval, now known as the mill of the Petit-Pré as a center of historical interpretation. The commitment should normally serve their master for three years before considering marriage. It often happened to be clothed, fed and housed, and even receive a small balance. Many had to wait more than three years before marriage, because of the lack of marriageable girls. In 1667, Mathurin becomes the owner of land on the island of Orleans. He is listed again under the surname "Duberg" among a group of singles, including two former companions of the Petit-Pré, and given 30 years. There he began his life of pioneer and his efforts to accumulate enough money for him to aspire to marriage.

    Anyway, Mathurin little time exploiting his leased farm on the island of Orleans. Indeed, his destiny takes him soon on the south shore of St. Lawrence. On Thursday, October 10, 1686, Mathurin Dubé, designated as "head of the Great Hanse, this is accompanied by his wife, Marie Campion, notary Gilles Rageot to award the contract to sell their land concession obtained in June 1667 Julien Dumont said Lafleur. Witnesses were Jean-Baptiste Morin said Rochebelle Metru and who have signed, while "lesd. Party (have) said to not know nor write of sign. This last assertion, constant Mathurin, was less accurate compared to Mary. So, after spending two decades on the island of Orleans, Mathurin settled with his family in late September or early October 1686 on Lot 30 of the lordship of the new Pocatière. It is the first farmer to lease and the first to reside in this area of Notre-Dame-de-Liesse (Rivière-Ouelle), a very large parish at the time.

    François-Madeleine-Fortune Ruette, Sieur d'Auteuil, probably informed by his grandmother Anne Gasnier qualities of the farmer Mathurin Dubé, granted a lease of our ancestor lease on the property of Marie-Anne de la Pocatière Juchereau. He acted as property manager and his wife, widow of François Pollet de la Combe Pocatière. So two weeks before the sale of its land on the island of Orleans, agrees Mathurin, Thursday, September 26, 1686, before the notary Gilles Rageot, operating lease as "the first may next for seven consecutive years (... ) Land and Lordship of the manor of Great Ansse Pocatiere in joining ... Dun side to Mr. de Saint Denis has an other land and home of William Dun Lisot after the Saint Lawrence River on the other end and depth of lad. land "with the house and other existing buildings. The Lord also undertakes to provide the animals, tools and "all the advances of grain that will be necessary to inoculate lad. land, whose residents must pay half the proceeds of the future harvest. Mathurin and Marie agree to "deliver and charge in the Longboat" sent by the lord Ruette Auteuil, each year, "saiz books boeurre room" in pots or tubs provided by the Lord, and that for each cow Herd, to share with the Lord "to moytié escroix", ie half of the calves and other products of the earth. Tenants will be to prohibit hunting on the field, with the exception of the partridge. Cookies are Nicolas Huot St-Laurent, head of the Bottles, and Pierre Mourier, a former neighbor of Mathurin the island of Orleans. The latter, as Mathurin Dubé, "said they know how to write of nor sign. Mathurin, however, left its mark. Mary tried to sign the contract and there has only been partially successful with his initials MA ... 'C. The lawyer confirmed Rageot indicating below: Signature of Mary Campion.

    Although it is not tied to a system of serfdom as European farmers at the time, Mathurin must still meet certain obligations. Indeed, he is obliged to pay annual rent to a lord (rent a farm) to grant him three or four days of work, usually devoted to pile up the good harvest in the barn to grind his corn mill lord and pay an application fee of usually four per cent of the harvest. Mathurin has certainly grown mainly wheat, like other farmers in time, in order to generate sufficient revenues. But also other commodities as crops of rye, barley, buckwheat, oats, lentils, cabbage, millet, beans, flax and hemp were reputed to do well on lands region. In less than two years, our "ancestor-farmer" was awarded two contracts letting people of high rank and the privilege of raising her family on the manor. These contracts and the concession obtained from the bishop, after having worked for him for some time, we conclude that Mathurin was a good worker and he knew something about agriculture. Unfortunately the lack of documentation does not allow us to assess and quantify the results of work on this Mathurin manor.

    We do not know exactly where Mathurin had his house on the large manor. The house no longer exists, although we spotted today on the hill, a very large house that may have been the site of the manor in La Pocatière. Louis Dubé, retired professor from Laval University and a senior member of the Association of American Dube, writes (Le Bé, No. 16, December 2000): "If we check carefully where the land William Lizot east and the boundary of the lordship St. Dionysius to the west, where were sent Mathurin and his family may be in this section (26 acres) of fee is known as being Pollet the estate in the cadastre of Leo Roy. The place is known as the Great Brook, is also along this small stream that was built the mill of the manor. According to Leon Roy (Land of the Great Cove Aulnaies and Port-Joly, p. 147), John LeRouge paced the manor in 1692 and he described the manor:

    "A beginning has terminal that I have planted that separates the aforesaid. lordship that of M. de St. Denis and since lad. Terminal I have measured up to the river with 14 acres or is Basty the mill and since dad. Riviere til Labita guillaume Lissot there are 9 acres and 9 perches after diceux I have drawn a line in the northwest to the southeast until Costeau lad. separation line making the field of lad. Lordship of Mr Dauteuille housing guillaume Lissot and lad. I have planted two line terminals Pierre Assistant which is buried pieces of brick. "

    Leon Roy added that the surveyor should have 12 acres instead of 9 acres and 9 perches between the Great Brook and the land of William Lizot, since the field extended over 26 acres in front.

    Dube's family has played a role, although minor, in national history during his stay at Domaine La Pocatière. During the incursion of a fleet of 34 British ships from Boston and headed by Sir William Phipps in 1690, Father Pierre Terrier Francheville gathered 38 young men and citizens to confront the invaders. Several of them, because the intersection of families, are our ancestors. The priest, wearing a long coat and carrying a musket, led his parishioners during the night and put them in ambush behind the bushes. Mathurin was among them, most likely with his boys Mathurin, aged 18, and Louis, aged 14 years. The detachment sent in supplies on the shore by Phipps, thanks to the tide, was greeted by a volley of muskets and disbanded in panic. Local tradition has devoted companions of the shot as the Hero of Ouelle River, and was associated with the preservation of New France. The brief skirmish was immortalized in Rivière-Ouelle by erecting a plaque in honor of the combatants. Inaugurated in 1946 under the initiative of Father Armand Dube (1906-1987), historian Ouelle River, the monument reminds present generations of bravery performed by residents under the guidance of a humble priest campaign. Phipps has been received in the same way wherever his troops tried to gain a foothold on the shore. Lacking food and being powerless before the forces of Governor Frontenac, he could not support his head and returned to Quebec to Boston.

    In September 1686, Mathurin sign the lease must run "for seven consecutive years. In an article (Le Bé, No. 16, December 2000, p. 18), Louis Dube wrote: "How long Mathurin Dubé he was the first tenant to lease the Lordship of Grande-Anse? We always thought he had fulfilled his own 7-year contract, that is to say from 1686 to 1694. Louis is the problem of the end of the lease after reading a paragraph published in 1972 by Theresa D. Ferland in his book The Family of Auteuil in Canada. She says: "In spring, the prosecutor must terminate the lease granted a year earlier to Mathurin Dubé in the Lordship of Grande-Anse. It has obtained a concession in Rivière-Ouelle and prefers to settle there. He offers his son Junior Mathurin to work on the farm in his place. Ruette Auteuil agreed and continue clearing the Pocatière with Dube son at least until 1694. "

    We would like to know the sources on which Ms. Ferland supports the termination. For his part, Leo Roy says Mathurin Dubé was the tenant of the lord of Auteuil when Jean LeRouge surveyed the manor in 1692. According to records of Raymond Dube, Mathurin acquires 5 December 1690 a land of 4 acres of river front to Ouelle. Michael Lee writes that the term of his lease in 1694, Mathurin "receives the lord of the land Bouteillerie two arpents by forty-two acres deep in Anse-aux-Iroquois. The land adjoining the one he bought previously Nicolas Cantin.. However, Leon Roy does not mention these two lands acquired in 1690 and 1694 in speaking of our ancestor. We found records showing that Michael Lee erred in awarding the concession from 1694 to Mathurin, Sr., then it should have been attributed to Mathurin, son. Even if we deny that Mathurin, father, has requested a transfer of his lease to his son Mathurin early as 1687. It seems that Mathurin father had taken his new land in Rivière-Ouelle to 1691 and again played the role of pioneer before his death.
