All additions or corrections gratefully received
Checked, and numerous minor additions and modifications 16th January 2013

I thought I would include one or two of the historical family Genealogies I have prepared.  In this instance I have been fortunate enough to obtain sufficient information from public sources to set out this famous French/Canadian family from whom the Audcent family descend and have supplemented with additional known family information.  All assistance to clarify missing or confused information will be appreciated.  I must also thank a number of correspondants who send me information they have researched from original registers.  Thanks to Jacques, Leo, Luc, and Will among others.  My special thanks go to Yves who has checked from his own sources the information given and provided numerous corrections and additions (2006-2008).  Some of the data on the children who died in infancy in Quebec in the 17th and 18th centuries are taken from the PRDH database (University of Montreal's Historical Demography Research Program) www.genealogie.umontreal.ca (Yves Drolet).

GENEALOGY of the family

The family d'Aillebout are one of the most important of the French Canadian families, giving to New France, a governor, and numerous soldiers, sailors and traders.  Many of the members of this family, including my own direct forebears have already had their biographies in the  "Dictionary of Canadian Biography" and this has been a wonderful bonus, assisting considerably in providing me with data on my forebears.  Where I have been able to extend the known information, is in the line d'Aillebout d'Argenteuil for which I possess original family documents and letters which have been handed down the family and which link into the historical record as prepared by others.
