The wife of Urbain Tessier dit Lavigne was Marie Archambault. Marie was baptized in France on 24 Feb 1636. In those days infants were almost always baptized within a day or two of birth. Urbain and Marie married in Quebec on 28 Sept 1648, and their first child, Charles was born in Montreal on 19 July 1649 and died 6 days later. Marie went on to have 15 more children,the last in 1679. Ten of these children married. ultimately. I'll do the math for you. Marie was 12 years, 7 months old when she married Urbain; and 13 years, 5 months old when she had her first child. Her children were born over a 30 year period. Did this stop her? Apparently not! She died at age 83, 30 years after Urbain. Let's give a cheer for the French-Canadian women.
