First two Bayards came to Canada(Nouvelle-France). François and Jacques.
Both came as soldiers.
Here I'll have to make some remarks as to the various names
1) Tanguay gives the following variations:
Baillac, Baillard, Bainla, Bainlast,
Bangaille, Banhiac, Banlia, Banliard,
Baya, Bayac, Lamontagne
2) Drouin gives: Baillard, Bayart, Banliac, Banhiac, Montagne
3) Amrecican-French Genealogical Society
A) François Banliac/Bayard dit Lamontagne
son of Jean Banliac and Françoise Petit
born around 1641 in Chantrezac, Angoulême,
He came to Canada in 1665 aboard the ship "La Justice" as a
soldier in the "Régiment de Carignan-Salières" from the
company 'La Fouille' under captain "Sieur Guillet"
However Drouin give the name Bayard to him.
He married Madeleine Doyon in 1677 and remarried with Angélique
Pelletier in 1680
B) Jacques Bayard
