Marie LeBlanc

[On the 17th day of April of the year 1729]
I, the undersigned missionary priest
in l’Acadie have baptized and
administered the ceremonies to Marie,
born on the 7th of April of the present year,
daughter of Pierre LeBlanc and
Françoise Landry. The Godfather
was Antoine LeBlanc; the
Godmother was Agnès LeBlanc, who have
declared that they do not know how to sign.
          Ant[oine] Faulin, pr[iest]

This record can be found as image 252/317 in the Acadia French Catholic Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1670-1946 on Ancestry.com in the records for St-Charles-les-Mines Baptêmes 1707-1733. The record appears on page 247.

The actual record does not state on what day the baptism occurred, but the records immediately preceding and following Marie LeBlanc’s record both state that those baptisms occurred on 17 April 1729, leading me to conclude that Marie’s baptism also occurred on that day. Marie was born on 07 Apr 1729, a date consistent with the presumed baptismal date of 17 Apr 1729.
