Did You Know? Québec Généalogie - What is a 'dit/dite' name?  When the first settlers came to Québec from France it was a custom to add a 'dit' nickname to the surname. The English translation of 'dit' is 'said'. The Colonists of Nouvelle France added 'dit' names as distinguishers. A settler might have wanted to differentiate their family from their siblings by taking a 'dit' name that described the locale to which they had relocated. The acquiring of a 'dit' name might also be the result of a casual adoption, whereby the person wanted to honor the family who had raised them. Another reason was also to distinguish themselves by taking as a 'dit' name the town or village in France from which they originated. This custom ended around 1900 when people began using only one name, either the 'dit' nickname or their original surname.

Did You Know? Québec Généalogie - The Seigneurial System (1627 - 1854)
The seigneurial system was a form of land settlement modeled on the French feudal system. It began in New France in 1627 with the formation of the Compagnie des Cent-Associés (or Company of 100 Associates), which was initially responsible for handing out land grants and seigneurial rights. The land was divided into five by 15 kilometer plots, usually along major rivers like the St. Lawrence. They were then further subdivided into narrow, but long lots for settlement. These lots were usually long enough to be suitable for faming, and they provided everyone who lived on them with equal access to neighbouring farms and the river. There were three main groups of people who lived off the land in this system: Seigneurs, Habitants and Engagés

Mathieu AMYOT (AMIOT) dit VILLENEUVE was a habitant.
Habitants were usually farmers or labourers who were initially brought over from France to live on this land. They had to pay rent and taxes to the seigneur, though they co-owned the land with the seigneur, and even had to work entirely for the benefit of the seigneur a few days each year.

Source: Canada in the Making (www.canadiana.ca/citm/index_e.html)

What is a Habitant? Habitants played an essential role in creating a permanent, settled population along the St. Lawrence River. But it was not an easy life...

Habitants had to clear the land, build a homestead, and plant and harvest a crop. The first task was never-ending, while the last one was annual. Building and repairing the house and barn were continual tasks. So were cutting and hauling firewood. The habitants had to be largely self-reliant in looking after all routine tasks such as cooking, baking, making furniture, and repairing tools. They had to attend to the educational and medical needs of the family. They had to endure the harsh physical climate and rough terrain, largely unaided by government support. The habitants had to pay taxes to the seigneurs and the church.

ON AUGUST 26 1636, HE BAPTISED ANOTHER SON, CHARLES AT QUÉBEC.

FOUR YEARS AFTER HIS ARRIVAL IN NEW FRANCE, PHILIPPE AMYOT DIED. HOWEVER, THROUGH HIS SONS, MATHIEU AND CHARLES, HE ESTABLISHED A LONG LINE OF DESCENDANTS WHICH TODAY NUMBER IN THE THOUSANDS.

MATHIEU AMYOT WAS A DECISIVE AND ENTREPRENEURIAL MAN. HE WAS GRANTED LAND CONCESSIONS AT TROIS RIVIÈRES, SILLERIE, AND NEAT QUÉBEC. FROM THE LAST CONCESSION HE TOOK THE NAME VILLENEUVE SINCE IT WAS SITUATED NEAR POINTE VILLENEUVE.

WITH THAT PACE, IT IS NO WONDER THAT HE BECAME ONE OF THE NOTABLE SETTLERS IN THE COLONY.

THE INTENDANT, JEAN TALON, SOUGHT TO OBTAIN A TITLE FOR HIM FROM THE KING. THESE WERE GRANTED BY LOUIS XIV IN 1668, BUT UNFORTUNATELY MATHIEU AMYOT FAILED TO HAVE THEM REGISTERED WITH THE SOVEREIGN COUNCIL OF NEW FRANCE AND THEY BECAME WORTHLESS. ALTHOUGH HE...Read MORE...
