Interesting story ..... Antoine Salardin was a friend and work companion of Louis Sédillot. Both had signed engagement agreements with the Compagnie de la Nouvelle-France on 2 November 1637. Likely due to their friendship, Antoine was named as the godfather of the first child of Louis and Marie Grimoult, Jacqueline, who was baptized on 21 December 1637 at Québec.
Salardin was married to Olive Grimoult dite Chégremond. It's unknown if she was related to Marie Grimoult although there is suspicion that the two couples had arrived, possibly, on the same ship from France in 1637. It seems that Olive had quite a volatile personality.
On the morning of 26 April 1638, after a quarrel for reasons unknown, Olive hurled herself at Marie Grimoult, wife of Sédillot, and wounded Marie in the head with a knife used for scraping turnips. Olive then struck Marie in the stomach while holding her on the ground. Supposedly, Grimoult dite Chégremond would have even burned Marie with firebrands if Louis Sédillot had not intervened in time. It appears that Olive's husband, Antoine, also got involved in the altercation after calling Marie "bougre, and other atrocious things" (bougre translates to "devil" or "damned"). The wounds suffered by Marie were, apparently, severe enough that the surgeon Adrien Duchesne was summonned to treat her.
Two days after the altercation, Duchesne was required to make a report before the court. According to his testimony, Marie had received a serious head injury. Governor de Montmagny, responding to a complaint by Louis Sédillot, released the accused from prison ordering her not to do it again, to pay 12 livres to Marie Grimoult as compensation, to pay another 12 livres to compensate the surgeon Duchesne, and 6 livres to the Church of Nôtre Dame of Québec. After this incident, it appears that the Salardins returned to France and are not believed to have returned to New France.
