3206. Noël MORIN was born about 1606 in Brie-Comte-Robert (Saint-Étienne) (Seine-et-Marne) (Ile-de-France Region), France.1770 Although the actual date of his passage to New France is unknown, he appeared in the records of notary Martial Piraude on 27 December 1639. Noël Morin and Hélène Desportes appeared in the 1666 Census. Living with them were five of their children (Nicolas, Jean Baptiste, Alphonse, Charles and Marie Magdelaine) as well as a domestic engagee and the widow (Marie Charlotte dePoitiers) of Hélène's son, Joseph Hébert. Noël and Hélène appeared in the 1667 Census on the "Costes de Ste.Genevieve, St.Francois and St. Michel". Living with them were three of their children (Alphonse, Charles and Marie Magdelaine) as well as a 17-year-old apprentice and 1 domestic. He died on 10 February 1680 in Riviere-du-Sud (Québec Province), Canada at the home of his son, Alphonse.1,2453 He was buried on 15 February 1680 at Notre Dame in Québec (Québec Province), Canada.1,2453 Hélène DESPORTES and Noël MORIN signed a marriage contract on 27 December 1639. They were married on 9 January 1640 in Québec (Québec Province), Canada.1,2454

3207. Hélène DESPORTES was possibly born in 1620 in Québec (Québec Province), Canada. She is often referred to as the first white child born in New France although some have suggested that she might have been born shortly before her parents arrived in New France. She was possibly baptized in 1620 in Québec (Québec Province), Canada but the actual date of her birth and baptismal has not been proven. She was, supposedly, the first white child (who survived) baptized in New France. Her godmother was Hélène Boullé - the young wife of explorer Samuel de Champlain. In 1629, Champlain was forced to surrender control of Qubec to the Kirke Brothers who had seized it for England. At that time, Hlne and her family were deported back to France. Her mother died while the family was in France and it is possible that her father died on the return trip to New France in 1632. It appears that she might have continued her return voyage with her aunt and uncle - Marguerite Langlois and Abraham Martin. The ships were named "La Salamandre and La Lionne". The vessels left Honfleur on 18 April 1632 but traveled to Le Havre to pickup/exchange passengers. They departed Le Havre on 21 April 1632. When Samuel de Champlain died on 25 December 1635, his will revealed that he had bequeathed 300 livres to Hélène in recognition of the fact that she was the godchild of Champlain's wife, Hélène Boullé.2455 She was a "Sage Femme" (Mid-wife).2456 Hélène's husband, Guillaume Hébert, died on 23 September 1639 leaving her with three young children. A month later on 21 October, Hélène requested that the Judiciary appoint a tutor/guardian for her minor children. Three months after the death of her husband, she married for a second time to Noël Morin.1,2457 Noël Morin and Hélène Desportes appeared in the 1666 Census. Living with them were five of their children (Nicolas, Jean Baptiste, Alphonse, Charles and Marie Magdelaine) as well as a domestic engagee and the widow (Marie Charlotte dePoitiers) of Hélène's son, Joseph Hébert. Noël and Hélène appeared in the 1667 Census on the "Costes de Ste.Genevieve, St.Francois and St. Michel". Living with them were three of their children (Alphonse, Charles and Marie Magdelaine) as well as a 17-year-old apprentice and 1 domestic. Hélène died on 24 June 1675 at the age of 55 in Québec (Québec Province), Canada.
