I hate to burst your baloon: All Peloquins are descendants of Francois; of three colonial era Peloquins (Pelloquin) only he had progeny;the othertwo,one accompanied LaSalle and returned to France, the other Batholomew,a Huguenot came by way of England and left no descendants. The herald spoken of is not necessarily correct;I know of two others and I have not yet determined the connection Francois was not of the regiment C arrignan Salieres Hwe was in infancy when it was deployed to canada. He was a member of the Les troupes de la Marine and was wounded in Quebec in 1690 when Phipps attacked from Boston. He is listed in the annals of l'Hotel Dieu (hospital),stayed 10 days,age 26,from St Andre de Niort. I saw the original penned book kept by the diarist of the time. Be most careful to accept reported facts V.G. three copies of francois wedding give three divergent assignations of him as a military;a number of books repeat errors. I verify all I write,have in my possession notarial,ecclesisatical and government document to verify everything. It is a slow but rewarding process. I have labored 40 years and continue. Each little new bit adds to the sum! Do you know of the Peloquin lesser noble from l'Ile Bouchard or the knight commandants of the 1500's-interesting persons but as of yet I have not made a positive connection. The last with documentationis francois grandfather also named Mathurin but carrying the variation of Ploquin ;his wife Francoise Chasteignier.
