From Robert Prévost, Éditions Libre Expression (Charron History)

The other pioneer to arrive during the seventeenth century — with the given name Jean, and known as Laferrière — was from Saintes. In 1669 at Quebec City, he married Anne d'Anneville, daughter of Brice d'Anneville and Marguerite Roy, and widow of Antoine Filion. He was a tool-maker, and belonged to the Company of La Fouille of the Carignan Regiment. Nine children were born of this union, of which five were daughters. Four of these founded households: Jacqueline with Antoine Plumeteau (1687), Marie-Anne with Joseph Charpentier (1689), Geneviève with François Bienvenu (1701) and Marie-Madeleine with Michel Chabot (1703). Of the four sons, the genealogical dictionaries mention only one who married: Jean-Baptiste, in 1710, to Geneviève Dupil, who also gave him nine children, of which one was a son.
