Jean LECLERC & Perrette BRUNELL (or Brunet) lived in the parish of St. Rémi in Dieppe, France.3,4 They had four children, but only three are known to us:


Marguerite- Marguerite was baptized 12 February 1640 in the St. Remi parish of Dieppe, France. She was a fille a marier who came to Canada in 1661.3
On 11 September 1661, Marguerite entered into a marriage contract with Nicolas Leblond; neither of the pair could sign the document. The wedding took place 13 October 1661. Nicolas was the son of bourgeois Jacques Leblond & Françoise de Nolan, about whom nothing else is known. Nicolas was born about 1638 in the Notre Dame parish of Honfleur, Lisieux, Normandy, France. Nicolas' year of immigration is not known, but he was in Chateàu-Richer on 2 February 1660, the date of his confirmation. Nicolas and Marguerite had ten children; two of them,
Nicolas and Marie Madeleine enrich this line with descendants.1,3,4
Nicolas Leblond died at the Hôtel-Dieu de Québec in September of 1677. Marguerite remarried a year later, on 8 September 1678, to widower Jean Rabouin at Ste. Famille, on the Île d'Orléans; the marriage contract had been penned the day before. Jean was born about 1636 in La Rochelle, Aunis, France; his parents were François Rabouin & Marguerite Chassay; their wedding day was 28 April 1633. François Raboiun was a plowman from Surgères, Aunis, France; Marguerite Chassay was from Fontenay-le-Comte, Poitou, France. She was buried 14 September 1657 at St. Sauveur, La Rochelle.3,4
Jean Rabouin & Marguerite Leclerc would have three children together before Marguerite's burial 24 January 1675 at Ste. Famille. Jean would marry again in 1706 at the age of 79 and father one more child before dying 7 December 1707. He was buried at St. Jean the following day.1,3,4

Anne- Anne Leclerc was the baby of the family, born about 1645 in the same St. Remi parish as her brother and sister. In 1668, she immigrated to New France as a fille du roi, joining her siblings Jean and Marguerite.3,4
Anne married Vincent Chrétien sometime in 1668, somewhere on the Île d'Orléans. Vincent was born about 1643; his place and family of origin are a mystery. He appears in the 1667 census on the Île d'Orléans as a bachelor. Anne and Vincent had eight children together.4
Vincent Chrétien died at the Hôtel-Dieu de Québec 3 June 1700. Anne Leclerc died at St. François on the Île d'Orléans 4 October 1716.4

Nothing else is known about Jean and Perrette.
