Philippe Noel-Genevive Leclerc

I must admit that the information for the children of this couple is rather sparse, as I've concentrated more on running down direct line ancestors in my years of research. But I hate to leave anyone completely out, either, so....

Phillipe Noel, son of Phillipe Noel and Marie Rondeau, was baptized 15 March 1705 in St. Pierre, on the Ile d'Orleans, Quebec.1

Philippe married Genevive Leclerc on 15 November 1729, in St. Pierre.1,2,3 Genevive had been born on 4 January 1711, at St. Pierre les Bescquets, Ile d'Orleans, to Jean-Charles Leclerc and Marguerite Morency Baucher.1,3 They are my 7th great-grandparents.

Philippe was appointed the first Seigneur of Lotbiniere.4 Philippe had some education, as he was able to sign his name; his signature appears on his son Antoine's birth record.3

Phillipe and Genevive had the following children:

Genevieve Marie Noël

Genevieve Marie was born 12 August 1730; place unknown. She died in St. Jean on the Île d'Orleans, Quebec,where she was buried 29 November 1745.1

Jean-Baptiste Marie Noël

Jean Baptiste Marie Noel was baptized 16 December 1731 in St. Pierre, Île d'Orleans.1 He was the Seigneur of Saint-Antoine-de-Tilly.4,7
On 14 January 1754, in St. Pierre, Jean-Baptiste married Renee Ferland.1,2 She was also a native of St. Pierre, born there about 1733 to Jean-Baptiste and Helene Crepeau.1
Jean Baptiste Marie and Renee had two children. Jean Baptiste was baptized 4 October 1754 at St. Pierre.1 Marie was baptized at St. Pierre on 11 October 1755 and subsequently buried 13 October in St. Pierre.1 The day after little Marie was buried, so was her mother. Renée Ferland was laid to rest in the same place on 14 October.1. It would be reasonable to assume that the ordeal of the birth was traumatic for both mother and child.
Eight months later, Jean Baptiste Marie married Genevieve Dussaut on 22 June 1756 at Levis, Île d'Orléans; she was the widow of Pierre Michel Ducas. Genevieve was the daughter of Pierre & Genevieve Huard; her baptism occurred 23 June 1736 at Levis. 1,8.
Their remarkable daughter, Marie Genvieve Noël was baptized at St. Antoine de Tilly on 13 January 1766. In the same location, on 14 October 1762, she married Joseph Drapeau. Joseph had been baptized 13 April 1762; his parents were Pierre & Marie Joseph Huard. Joseph Drapeau was successful; his many hats included shipbuilder, merchant, and landowner. Upon his death on 3 November 1810, his wife Marie Genvieve Noël was left a rich woman. She also became the owner of the seigneuries of Lessard, Rimouski, Métis, Nicolas-Rioux and Rivière-du-Gouffre. She even owned part of the Île d'Orléans. Marie Genevieve managed the properties efficiently and won the respect of her lessees and the admiration of her family and friends. Marie Genevieve Noël died about 1829.1,4
Jean Baptiste Marie Noël and Genevieve Dussaut's death dates are unknown.

Philippe Noël

Philippe Noël was born 13 march 1734 at St. Pierre.1 On 10 February 1755, there was celebrating in St. Pierre as Philippe wed Marie Agathe Aubin.1,2 Marie Agathe was the daughter of Pierre Aubin & Marguerite Marcoux; she had been baptized at St. Pierre on 9 April 1738.1
Philippe and Marie Agathe had six children, with four of them living to adulthood.1
The couple's death information is not yet known.

Louis Noël

Louis Noel was baptized 12 July 1735 in St. Pierre.1 He married Marguerite Paradis on 20 November 1758 in St. Pierre.1,2 Marguerite was a native of St. Pierre, having been baptized there 29 September 1738. Her parents were Ignace & Marie-Anne Turcot.1
Louis and Marguerite relocated to the St. Laurent section of the Ile d'Orleans and had 5 known children, two of whom we are concerned with:

  • Therese- Married Charles Labrecque on 16 August 1790 at St. Laurent. Charles was the son of Pierre & Cecile Baillargeon. Nothing else is known about this couple.
  • Geneviève- Married her second cousin Charles Paulet on 16 July 1792 at St. Laurent.2 Charles was the son of Jean François & Marie Louise Noël; he was baptized 6 February 1756 at St. Pierre.1
    Louis Noël was able to write his name, as his signature appears on the marriage record of brother Antoine .
    That is all that is known about either Louis Noël or Marguerite Paradis.

    Marie Thecle Noël

    Marie Thecle was born 23 September 1737 in St. Pierre.1
    Marie Thecle married Etienne Prisque Paquet on 18 October 1756 in St. Pierre. He was from Ste. Famillie, Île d'Orléans, a son of Francois & Angelique Paradis . The dates/places of death for Etienne and Marie Thecle are unknown.

    Marie Joseph Noël

    Marie Joseph was baptized 24 September 1739 in St. Pierre.1 She married Jean Ferland on 26 January 1761 at St. Pierre.1,2. He was the son of Jean Baptiste & Helene Crepeau. Nothing else is known about this couple.

    François Jean Marie Noël

    François was baptized 19 February 1742 at St. Pierre. The rest of his information is incomplete. It is known that he lived to adulthood, as he signed as a witness at the marriage of his brother Antoine.3 Nothing else is known at this time.

    Joseph Noël

    This sweet little boy was baptized 3 May 1744 and buried 26 February 1749 at St. Pierre.1

    Pierre Noël

    This little guy was baptized 15 September 1746 and was most certainly a playmate for sweet little Joseph. And Joseph must have been heartbroken when Pierre was buried 4 March 1749 at St. Pierre; just 2 months before his own short life ended.1 Pierre would be the third child of the family to have been buried in the space of four years. How heartbreaking....

    Marie Genevieve Noël

    The above saga continues right on into this section. Marie Genevieve made her appearance into the world right after the burial of her brother Pierre; she was baptized 7 March 1749 at St. Pierre.1
    Poor Philippe and Genevive! If it was an illness that took their two little boys, they had to be besides themselves with worry that either the pregnant Genevieve or the new baby might contract the illness and suffer the same fate. Or that the strain of the deaths of her children could bring on early labor or cause other complications for the expectant mother. What an ordeal this must have been! Luckily, mother and baby survived.
    Marie Genevieve married Louis Gabriel Aubin on 7 July 1767 in St. Pierre.2 He was baptized 15 December 1739, son of Pierre & Marguerite Marcoux.1 Nothing else is known about this couple.

    Antoine NOËL

    Marie Victoire Noël

    Marie Victoire was baptized 4 July 1753 at St. Pierre. Pierre Poulin was the son of Pierre & Marie Anne Doyon, baptized 20 March 1746 at St. Joachim, Québec.1
    Pierre & Marie Victoire wed on 5 October 1772 at St. Pierre.2 That is all that is known about this couple.

    Therese Noël

    Therese was baptized 30 April 1756 in St. Pierre.1 Charles Roberge was the son of Ambroise & Marie Louise Goulet, baptized on 2 March 1746 in St. Pierre. They were married 25 August 1775, also at St. Pierre. That is the sum total of information on this couple.

    Philippe Noël and Genevieve Leclerc lived their entire lives, raised and--sadly buried some--of their children at St. Pierre. They watched their surviving children go on to have husbands and families and happily enjoyed their grandchildren and even more happily the great-grandchildren.
    Philippe died and was buried at St. Pierre on 12 March 1760, at 55 years of age.1,5 He had been married to Genevieve for 30 years.

    Genevieve lived to the ripe old age of 81, dying on 29 March 1792. She was buried the same day at St. Pierre.3
