The first Picot to come to Canada ( Port Royale) was Michel(Picot) Picotte (born abt 1685 in Chartres, France), son of Michel (Picot) Picotte (born abt. 1655 Chartres, France ) and Santine Veinarde.
He had a son with wife Isabel(Elisabeth)Levron dit Nantais (b. abt. 1688/1690 Port Royale, Acadie, Canada), who he also named Michel (born in Canada about 1711/12)and this son married Anne Blain (b. abt. 1715, Canada).
Hope this helps you. I found this stuff at Ancestry.com when I helped a 13 year old with her geneology project for an english class. We traced the Picotte family back 10 generations.
Did you know that Picot means small stiches, like in sewing or embroidery? The ending -te diminuifies the name, almost like -son on the name Johnson; John's son.
There is a whole Picotte line that is Native American. I think that the Picotte's might have been voyageurs or fur traders and trappers, some of whom married native women. Back in the 1600's through the early 1800's, not many european women would have come to live in the wilderness. I guess men really outnumbered available women then.
Have fun, I did. This geneology stuff is really addicting.
