Nicolas PINEL (1605-1655)

In the October 2008 issue (Vol. 136, No. 9)
of the
Revue Sainte-Anne
you'll find an interesting article about the ancestor of the PINEL's in QUÉBEC.
Born in Campagnolles, Normandie, FRANCE, Nicolas PINEL married Madeleine MARANDA dit MARAULT in 1630 in Ste-Marguerite-de-LaRochelle. The couple had 5 children:
Pierre (1-died very young)
Gilles (twin) married Anne LÉODET in 1657,
Pierre (2) married Charlotte FOUCHERAT in 1662,
2nd marriage to Barbe (Anne) DUPONT in 1692,
Gilles is the only child to have assure the survival of the PINEL surname, although some of his children took on the name of LAFRANCE. In 1729, the PINEL's had 276 descendants.
