Aubain-Aubin family

Working on the Aubain family at St Benoit, I have Catherine's baptism 26 Sep 1804 at St Benoit and her marriage to Jacques Neveu 11 Aug 1835 also at St Benoit. The marriage registration for this couple shows her parents names and that Jacques Neveu was the widower of Catherine Drouin. Pulling up the marriage of Jacques Neveu and Catherine Drouin 5 Oct 1818 reveals his parents names.

Parents of Jacques Neveu were: Augustin Neveu and Marie Citoleux who were themselves married 6 Jul 1788 at Ste Geneviève.

Parents of Catherine Aubain were: Toussaint Aubain and Céleste Legault dite Delaurier who were themselves married 22 Sep 1794 at St Eustache. Their parents were listed on the marriage lines.

Parents of Toussaint Aubain were: Louis Amable Aubin and Marie Angelique Varrin dite Lapistolle. They were married 8 Jun 1761 at Longueuil. Their parents were listed on the marriage lines (below).

Parents of Céleste Legault dite Delaurier were: François Legault dite Delaurier and Céleste Lapierre dite Birond (sp). I have not yet located their marriage.

Continuing with Toussaint Aubain line, I found his grandparents.

Parents of Louis Amable Aubin were: Réne Aubin and Françoise Bigras who were themselves married 15 Jun 1716 at St Joachim, Pointe-Claire.

Parents of Marie Angélique Varrin dit Lapistolle were: Nicolas Barrin and Marie Suzanne Daunay who were married 7 Jan 1733 at Longueuil.

Looking at the parents of Louis Amable Aubin, I found his grandparents listed on his parents wedding lines.

Parents of Réne Aubin were André Aubin and Marie Nevine who married in France and Réne was also baptized in France.

Parents of Françoise Bigras were: François Bigras and Marie Brunet who were married 31 Aug 1693 at Montréal.

The parents of François Bigras were Mathurin Bigras and Catherine Parenteau who were married in France and did not come to New France.

The parents of Marie Brunet were Mathieu-Michel Brunet dit Letang and Marie Blanchard who married 10 Nov 1667 at Notre-Dame, Québec. They were both both born in France. This is the second child of this couple in the family tree. Her older sister Marie-Anne married Antoine Pilon 10 Jan 1689 at Montréal. I still need to verify the Pilon family tree though so will keep that thought on the side for the moment.

The parents of Mathieu-Michel Brunet dit Letang were Jacques Brunet and Jacqueline Recheine both of France.

The parents of Marie Blanchard were Jean Blanchard and Martine Lebas both of France. The marriage lines do give the parishes for the parents in most cases.

Tomorrow I shall continue working on my verification for these lines. I need to go back and work on the 3x great grandparents having completed the 2x great grandparents. I became distracted as I started to pull the proofs from the parish records.
