Eleventh Generation


1330. Pierre DULIGNON DE LA MIRANDE was baptized on 20 January 1656 in La Rochefoucauld (Temple calviniste) (Charente) (Poitou Charentes Region), France.1770 According to a book written by Germain Lasage entitled "Histoire de Louiseville", the Dulignon de la Mirande family was one of nobility. Pierre was, supposedly, the eldest of a Protestant family ennobled by King Henry IV. Pierre came to Quebec as a Sergeant in company of Joseph de Jardy, Lord of Cabanac. The lieutenant and his crew of about 500 left La Rochelle in 1685. Joseph (Jordy) de Cabanac and his nephew, François, were on the ship "La Diligente" with the officers, the Governor of Denoville and Bishop of Saint-Vallier. The enlisted soldiers were on the ships "Le Fourgon" and "Le Mulet". Pierre Dulignon, because of his nobility, was probably on the first ship. They arrived at Québec in July. In 1686, they began the four-year Iroquois War and fought the English beginning in 1689. At the end of the Iroquois War, Pierre Dulignon settled at La Rivière-du-Loup. He was buried on 14 February 1736 at Saint-Antoine-de-la-Rivière-du-Loup in Louiseville (Québec Province), Canada. His burial record showed his age as about 80 years old.1,1852 Marguerite DE GERLAISE and Pierre DULIGNON DE LA MIRANDE1994 signed a marriage contract on 27 July 1703. They were married in (Québec Province), Canada but their marriage record has not been found. (Note: The marriage date was originally thought to be 10 January 1704 (Montreal, Quebec Province, Canada) but I've been unable to find that record on that date. I had also found reference to another date for this marriage (27 Jul 1703) but was also unable to find a marriage record for this couple on this date. The 2nd date, however, is likely a reference to the marriage contract.)
