The Allard Family

Valerie Allard was a descendent of François Allard and Jeanne Anguille. François was one of the first farmers in Quebec. He and his brother, Julien, set out for New France from Blacqueville, a village near Rouen, Upper Normandy, in 1666 to seek out opportunities that would lead to them owning their own land. Jeanne Anguille was one of the "Filles du Roi" - The Kings Daughters, and she came from Artunne, a little village about 15 kilometres from Tours. She came from a family of above average means who were able to provide her with a dowry of 300 livres.

François and Jeanne were married in a little chapel in Beauport on November 1, 1671.
