The Marriage of Pierre LeBlanc and Françoise Landry – 1711

On 16 Feb 1711, Pierre LeBlanc, son of Antoine LeBlanc and Marie Bourgeois, married Françoise Landry, daughter of the deceased Antoine Landry and the deceased Marie Tibeaudeau. Pierre LeBlanc and Françoise Landry are the parents of all the Leblanc children whose records I’ve shown over the past couple of weeks.

Thanks once again to Gilles of The Nomadic Researcher for helping me translate difficult sections of this document. Regarding one section with which I had difficulty, Gilles wrote that this section was written in “what we call now «au son» or in a phonetic way”.
