Jacques Billaudeau, son of Pierre Billaudeau and Jeanne Fleuvie
Genevieve Longchamps, daughter of Pierre Longchamps and Marie des Antes

"Jacques Billaudeau had been married for almost two years when he received his concession from Charles de Lauson Charny. The marriage was registered at Québec on 28 October 1654, but the ceremony took place in the house of the Sieur de la Ferte. It was there we learn that Jacques was the son of Pierre Billaudeau and of Jeanne Fleurie, and that the bride, Geneviève Longschamps (sometimes spelled Deslongschamps), was the daughter of Pierre and of Marie Desanter. The document does not indicate the couple's place of origin, but the list of those confirmed at Château-Richer, says that Jacques, before coming to Canada, had lived in the region of Poitiers, but gave no further details. It seems that all the Billaudeau-Longschamps children were born, on the Ile d'Orléans, between 1656 and 1664. The baptismal record for Simon in1662, has been found at Château-Richer, as for the others, it is necessary to reply on the approximate age mentioned in the various censuses. On this subject, let us note the local census of the arriere-fief of Charny-Lirec which Charles de Lauson produced on 26 April 1661."

Arrived in the country in 1652, he settled in Sainte-Famille, Île d'Orléans in 1656. In the census of 1681, he owned 30 cattle and 40 acres of land.
