Hi, Cecile has documents that say "natif dequefille, colonie de la nouvelle angleterre" this translates to "native of quefille, colony of new england".The country of England was not referred to as a colony.Jette a reknound genealogist said that "quefille" was a village in the area of what is now know as Mass.The notary that wrote their marriage contract even recorded it as fact.I would never second guess the original documents.
Google does not have the answer to everything.I googled "quefille" and came up with Cecile's post and many others.
At message #344 Cecile Longpre wrote: I'm a french canadian descendants of Guillaume Longpré. I'm just find your forum on my family. It's very interesting I'm sory my english is not very good. It's 15 years ago i'm looking for our real name in State but i'm not lucky because I found noting. I have a copy of parish Notre-Dame de Montreal for the mariage of Guillaume and Catherine Blot and the prist wrote anglais de nation et la ville quefille I have too a copy of our contract of Notary and he wrote natif dequefille, colonie de la nouvelle angleterre and he wrote too his father is dead but his mother Jeanne Allard is life.
To suggest that Longpre comes from royalty Longespee is way too far off beat for me.If it were even possible history tells me that our Longpre would have been a pesant working the land, etc.
