A Marriageable Young Girl
Madeleine Mullois
Madeleine Mullois was born in 1642 at St. Honoré, Blois, Chartres, France; the daughter of Thomas Mullois and Sebastienne Hebert.  She arrived in the Quebec Colony as a Filles A Marier, contracted to be the bride of Etienne Pezard, Captain of Garrison at Trois-Rivieres.  They were wed June 20, 1664 in Montreal.

Etienne was born in 1624 at St. Honore; the son of Claude Pezard and Marie Masson.  I believe he may have been a relative of Champlain's, since his title alternated between Sieur De La Touche and Sieur De Champlain.  Etienne and Madeleine would have five children before his death in 1695.  Madeleine  followed on August 16, 1704 at Champlain, Quebec.
