  • Notes 
    • Liana Trombley's work found in the scrapbook section of Jean Baptiste Trembley of Newport, MI, states that Pierre Trombley's birthplace is: about 1627 in LaFilioniere, Saint Malo Parish, Rondonnai, Canton of Tourouvre, Arrondisement of Mortagne, Perche, France. Source for my data is Fr. Christian Denissens' work on French Canadian Families of the Deteroit Area.

      According to Liana Trombley, above citation, Pierre Tremblay, laborer, of the village of La Filionnaire, France, and Martin Huan, locksmith, signed a contract on 9 April 1647 in the said village to go to New France to do work for three years for Noel Juchereau, Sieur des Cahtelets of Quebec City, Canada. The contract being in April, we can assume that 1647 represents the date our ancestor Pierre Tremblay came to the New World. Pierre was to be paid the sum of 70 livres annually for his labors. Martin Huan, the locksmith, got 90 livres annually for his work. Pierre indicated to the notary that he did not know how to sign his name. This contract in its entirety is cited in translation in Lianna Trombley's research cited above.

      Pierre's death date and cemetery is cited by Liana Trombley, but declares the date is in dispute.

      Liana also states there is a statue in the village of L'Ange Gardien commemorating the 300th anniversary of Pierre Trombley's marriage to Ozanne-Jeanne Achon, placed there in 1957. Ozanne was a "King's daughter" sent to New France by King Louis XIV to take control of New France by way of populating it with the French People and their offspring. The statue portrays the original land contract for two arpents, or acres of frontage on the St Lawrence river and extending back 1/2 a league (1 and one half miles). It gave Pierre Trembley and his heirs, hunting, fishing, and pasturing rights, provided he pays each year on the feast of St. Remy the sum of one pound for each arpent of frontage and 2 chickens for the whole concession to Jean, Lord of Lauzon and Lothainville and Knight Grand Marshall of New France. The land conract is translated and found in Lianna Trombley's research. It was dated April 4, 1659, 12 years after his arrival in the New World.

      Denissen indicates he was a farmer in France.

      Pierre Tremblay's birth date of 1626 is consistent with his father Philibert-Gilbert Tremblay's birth date of 1604. But the dates of other members of this family in France are contradictory and need further research. Wives in most instances are unknown for the family in France.

      Neoella Reid Gold (noella@fungold.com) states that Pierre embarked on a caravel called "The Marguerite" on June 6, 1647 in the port of LaRochelle and after two months at sea arrived in Quebac. While in Quebec he first worked at the docks, then turned his atention to farming.
