The site is entirely in French... but here is a rough English translation...
Jean Pérusse Ancestor of the america Pérusse (to see also the text on the ancestor Nicolas Rivard) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- .
John Pérusse is the first ANCESTOR to the country of the families Pérusse native of France. He is the alone family boss of this name that left descendants in this country. He is therefore the ancestor of all the Pérusse. He was a trade farmer. Jean Pérusse immigrated from France to Canada in the last years of the 17th century.Dès his arrival, we rediscover it established in the Seigneurie (Lordship) of Lotbinière.About 1697, Jean Pérusse married to Lotbinière, Marries Jeanne Barabé that devint our first aïeule.Of this union naquirent two boys and three girls.PÉRUSSE: a Noble family
The family de Pérusse de Cars one Limousin (Poitou) blasonnait; Of mouth (red) to the blade of vaire (represented fur by money pinnacles and of azure.His motto was: " Does this that has, happens that will be able."
This family dates back to the 11th century to Audouin of Pérusse, knight lord of St-Bonnet.
This is a descendant of this family, the marquis Louis Nicolas des Cars de Pérusse that eût it in charge of receiving on its earths a good number of acadiens in exile in France after deportation.
The marquis louis-nicolas des Cars de Pérusse was married to jeanne-marie Victory of the artaguette Hette of which the mother was a girl GUILLARD of the VACHERIE.
The father of the marquis louis-nicolas des Cars de Pérusse named itself Louis François de Pérusse, count des Cars and of St-Bonnet, marquis of Pranzac, aisse baron and Renaudie, lord of the Rock Bee, of Holy ibars and other places. ..en of other terms; "A big lord of the Limousin, with a lot of earths, of titles and of under."
362 families acadiennes, composed from 1,472 persons s'installèrent themselves on the earths offered by the marquis de Pérusse to the Poitou.Two years later, it did not remain anymore than 157 persons, the others having left the places while saying than the earths than the marquis offered to them, "were sterile, from the beginning of time" Amen!
The PÉRUSSE of here, VERY OBLITERATED PEOPLE' so that one some hears practically not to speak.A Pérusse is killed to the slaughters Lachine and a François Pérusse is involved itself to go to the draft of the furs of the Straits side in 1748.
For me, it's hard to make sense out of most of that, but the first few paragraphs give a wealth of info. So going on that, I searched online for information on Audouin Perusse... and found 5 men of great interest. See the post on "The Noble Perusse family of France" for more info.
