Pop-up Pedigree

Father   **Jean DeRainville1 b. circa 1585
Mother   **Jeanne Brechet1 b. circa 1600

Birth June 1619 Paul was born in June 1619 and was baptized at St Thomas de Touques, Normandy, France.1,2

The church of St. Thomas de Touques.  An interesting old church.  Travellers tell us that the churches of Normandy are very interesting, some with a thousand years of service; many of them partly rebuilt.  The façade of this church is very old, of Romanesque style; looks like the façade of the original church.  A portal of Renaissance style was added to the original façade.  The side walls, of a transition style, semi-Romanesque and semi-Gothic, do not seem to be as old as the façade.  The tower, of Gothic style, is of more recent date.  It is the church in which Paul de Rainville was baptized, where he was most probably married, and where his children were baptized.

Marriage 1638 Paul DeRainville married Rolline Poète 1638 in St Thomas de Touques, Pont-l'Evêque, France.1  

He was a sargent in the militia in Quebec.3

1665 Paul came to Beauport in New France with his family in 1665. They had four children that came with them.  This date may be a bit late. Several of their children were married in Quebec BEFORE 1665.

Marie about 21 years old
Marthe about 18
Charles about 13.4
They had at least 7 children, the 3 that died young were:
