Information: Antoine was the first husband of Anne D'Anneville. Also found another web site with extensive information:

The second ancestor is Anthoine Fillion originating from Paris, like his parents and grandparents. His grandfather, Edmond Fillon (and not Fillion) and his father André, were "master blacksmith baudroyor", craftsmen specialized in the finishing of leather. Anthoine was born towards 1637 in Paris where he was master ironmonger. He was first married, towards 1656, to a girl of which we are unaware of the name. The couple will have at least a son, who was named Pierre. Probably following the death of his first wife, Anthoine married again towards 1664 with Anne D'Anneville, originating in the Saint-Eustache parish in Paris.

Anthoine and his wife Anne D'Anneville, accompanied by her sister Gabrielle and her mother Marguerite LeRoy, two "Filles du Roy", embarked at La Rochelle on April 27, 1665 on board "Cat de Holland", a trading vessel of 250 barrels. They arrived in Québec on June 18, 1665. Anthoine had two children in New-France: Jean-Baptiste, baptized on July 17, 1666 and which did not survive three months, and Jean, born on October 31, 1667, who will be at the origin of the many descent of Anthoine in America. The last presence of Anthoine is announced in August 1668 and the confirmation of his death was revealed in 1669. Anne d'Anneville will remarry in November 1669 with Jean Charron Dit LaFerrière, who was a "taillandier".

Anthoine had at least a brother, Michel Fillion, born towards 1632. This brother was the first of the family to settle in New-France (Beauport). He had there a beautiful career: an usher in 1658, a tax prosecutor in Beauport in 1658, a clerk of Sénéchaussé of Quebec City in 1662, a royal notary as of September 23, 1662, a clerk of the Sovereign Council of New-France on September 24, 1664. Michel married on September 26 1661 Marguerite Aubert, widow of Martin Grouvel. He remained without descendants and died on June 6, 1689 in Beauport.
