Michel was a Navigateur.
The navigateur, or navigator, was the person on board a ship responsible for its navigation — a set of tasks to determine the position of a boat or ship and the route to follow. The navigator's primary responsibility was to be aware of the ship's position at all times. Near coastlines, he had to avoid hazards by determining optimal routes depending on the shoals, the state of the tide, and the channels to follow. On the high seas, he had to be skilled in long-term forecasting in order to make the best possible decisions depending on the weather.

"The registries of Beauport are missing for the years 1675, 1676 and 1677, therefore Sainte's baptismal act has not been found. This 4th Grondin child became the wife of Jean Hayot on 17 February 1695, and was the mother of 6 children. After the death of her husband, she married a second time, to Michel Chartier (1667-1750), former seigneur or la riviere Decoudet (or riviere Saint-Jean), in Acadia. He even built a fort at Passamaquoddy. Expelled by the English in 1704, Michel went to live in New France. He was remarried on 15 April 1722 at Quebec to Sainte Grondin. She gave him a son, Joseph-Marie, who did not survive."
