Biography

He is the 9th child of Nicolas and Madeleine. He is also the last man to have left an offspring. We enter the lineage of travelers. He will be one of the first clearers of the rank of Bois-de-l'Ail and what will become Pont-Rouge. The story begins early in 1711, Alexis at 19 years old.

The present survey was carried out following the opening of a new lease in the seigneury of Neuville, in Bois-de-l'Ail, whose lands were offered to the inhabitants of the Seigniories of Neuville and Cap-Santé ( Portneuf); On February 6, 1711, four inhabitants of Cap-Santé, namely François Tellier, named Langlois, named Richard and Alexis Matte, presented themselves for the delivery of land, but they changed their minds when they saw that best of them had already been delivered to the said Champagne and Constantineau.

             As we see in the minutes of April 1 and 2, 172, this has not stopped.

His wife, Marie-Françoise Carpentier is the daughter of Jean Baptiste Carpentier and Marie Françoise Gentil.  She was born on 10 March 1702 in Neuville, Portneuf, Quebec. Was baptized the next day by Father J. Basset, parish priest. His godfather and godmother were Benoît Carpentier, his paternal uncle, and Anne Coutancineau, widow of Nicolas Pinel. The spouses did not know how to sign their name. Present were: Noël Pelletier, brother-in-law and Marie-Marie-Madeleine (6.2.1, -1) the groom's sister; Pierre Hardy, lieutenant of militia; Mathurin Louis Motard, Nicolas Matte (5.2, 1, -1), brother of the groom; Benoît and François Carpentier, uncles of the bride; François Laroche, nephew of the groom; Jean Laroche and Joseph Galarneau, cousins of the bride; and Alexis Richard.

  This rank « Bois de-l’Ail » was called "Meloizes". With the enumeration of 1725, François Biron is the first to be conceded there a land (lot 12) in 1722 by the lord of Neuville, Nicolas Renaud of Avène des Méloizes hence the name of the rank.

When the count of 1725 there are no houses, some clearers are at work: Nicolas (lot 13) (2,3,2,1, -1) son of Laurent (3,2,1, -1 ), Jean Petit (lot 14) Marie-Françoise's husband, their brother-in-law, Laurent Matte (lot 16) (1,3,2,1, -1), Jean Carpentier (lot 17), Jean-Baptiste Bertrand (lot 19) and Pierre Richard (lot 21). The last 4 owned a barn.

He too will have a civil responsibility vis-à-vis the children of Jean-Baptiste Carpentier, resident, Sainte-Famille, Cap-Santé, and the late Marie-Françoise Genty (kind). February 18, 1736. This begotten some papers, the donation and the lifting of the responsibility.
