Notes for Guillaume/William Longpre:
There is a possibility that Lydie Madeleine Longley, born on 12 April 1674 in Groton, New England, USA, was the sister of Guillaume/William Longpre.The mother of Lydie was Delivrance Crisp. Lydie was taken by the Abénaquis Indian on 27 July 1694.In 1696 she had been living with the Nuns at Congregation of Notre Dame for about a month, when she was baptized as a Catholic on 24 April 1696.We know that her parents were Protestant from Grotien near Boston, New England.Lydie became a professional nun known as Sister Sainte Madeleine, on Sept. 16, 1699.

Generation No. 2
2.Guillaume2 Allard-dit-Longpre (Guillaume/William1 Longpre) was born about 1697 in Colonies Anglaises (the United States Colonies), and died 04 Feb 1761 in Longue Pointe, QC.He married Marie-Catherine Bleau/Blot 15 Jan 1720 in Notre Dame de Montréal, QC (ct 14, LePaille/Paillardur), daughter of Francois-Jean Bleau/Blot and Marie-Catherine Campeau.She was born 27 Mar 1699 in Montréal, QC, and died 31 Oct 1780 in Longue Pointe, Montréal, QC.
Notes for Guillaume Allard-dit-Longpre:
Jette on Page 741, claims that he may have arrived from the area of Quefille, Nouvelle Angleterre (this translates to New England which later became the USA).Perhaps from Deerfield, Franklin, Mass.Guilliaume aka William claims to be 23 in 1720 and was contracted to work Ouest (west) on 28 Apr 1721.
Guillaume Longpre took on the "dit' name Allard.This was his mother's surname.His descendants took on either name.
According to "Les histoires captifs Anglo Americain au Canada entre 1675-1760 de la Nouvelle-Angleterre à la Nouvelle France - auteur Marcel Fournier - this is a translation of document.
William Longpré was born 1695 or 1697 in Deerfield,Franklin county Mass son of William (Longpré) and Jane Alart.The identification of this individual causes many problems. We presume that the name of this family could be Longley or William but without any proof. William Longpré was made prisoner during an attack in Deerfield on august 22, 1703. He was a captive of the Abénaquis and was probable baptized by a missionary priest (proof lost) under the name of William. His name of Longpré was given by his Indian captives. He lived among the Abénaquis for many years doing the fur trade with the white man. He was among them until he moved to Montréal in his late teens. On January 15 1720 he married Catherine Bleau born 1699 d.o. François Bleau and Catherine Campeau. The couple lived in Montréal then moved to Pointe-aux-Trembles where they raised 10 children between 1720-1738. William Longpre did travel out West . He died in Pointe-aux-Trembles February 6, 176l. His wife died in Longue-Pointe on October 31, 1780.
Variation of name - De Lompreé, Allard dit Lonpré, Longley and William.
Parchemin - banque de donneés notariales (1626-1784) BMSE -
28-4-1721 (1719-1726) (David, J) (Mlt)
The above are only theories.His name was not on the list of individuals captured in Deerfield on August 22, 1703.Others were captured during this period at other times.I found no connection between Longpre and Longley, yet I realize that names were often misspelled during that era, and changed during translation from English to Indian to French..

Hi, I have decided to post all my Québec pioneer ancestor at the different GenForums because a lot of individuals doing genealogy research don’t realize that their ancestors can be found as early as the 1600s.
My resources are limited because I live in Oregon. I hope that you use this information only as a guide. I welcome corrections and additions from anyone that has access to the original files.
Originally I paid a genealogy society to trace the direct lines for 6 of my 8 great grandparents. They used the books that were compiled by volunteers for each parish. Because so many individuals had the same name, I eventually found some errors in these books. Then I used Tanguay and found out that he may be about 75% right and Jette (that goes to 1730) is about 90% right. Then just as I thought that I was finished, I found PRDH (University of Montreal) and I believe that they may be 98% right and still make corrections to their records. They go up to 1799 for marriage contracts and 1850 for some deaths. Some people have the luxury of having the original records at their disposal. I do not have that and with 17,000 individuals in my data base, I can not afford to pay for copies of all the originals. At that point I confirmed every that I had with the records at PRDH. Whenever I say “about” for a birth date it means that PRDH did not find it or if it is in the 1800s, I did not look it up because of my lack of resources.
PRDH uses the most common spelling variation for the names. This makes it easier to trace the families. They do not always use the original name that appears on the contracts or birth records. That is ok with me, because many individuals before the 1900s could not sign their names and did not even care how others spelt it. As a result the same person’s name took on a variety of spellings. I also kept the “dit” (aka) names because eventually brothers from the same family, picked a different aka name.For a very small fee PRDH has all the Canadian records from 1600-1799 and some death dates up to 1850.Their records are about 18% accurate.They can be found at:
As for the pioneers, I also used Peter Gagné’s English books on the single girls that arrived in New France between 1634 & 1662 and his book on the single girls that are referred to as the King’s Daughters that arrived between 1663 & 1673. These girls were recruited and paid by the King to go to New France (Québec) to get married and colonize the area.
For the 1800-1900s I paid to prove my direct lines.My data for their extended family come from people on the web. The program that I use does not allow for baptismal dates, so if I don’t have a birth date, I use the baptismal date. The same goes for death vs. burial dates and actual wedding vs. contract dates. The newer programs have these features, but I will not be going through 18,000 records to make the changes.
Use this information as a guide only. I view genealogy as a hobby and not as pure science.As for the stories, I got them all in French on the web and I translated them for my grandchildren.I had not read or spoken French in over 40 years, so it was difficult and may not be the best translation.
