My name is Christopher martin, I am a decendant of Mathurin Banlier dit Laperle.
He himself is a decedant of the Banlier family of the city of Poitiers, France.
Mathurin was born abt. 1635 in Poitiers,Poitou, France, later on in life he joined the Carinigan Regiment which was sent to New France(Quebec) in the Mid 1600's to protect the colony from Indian attacks. He was part of the St. Ours Company attached to the Regiment. He married Francoise Antoinette Vernin(my ancestor) abt. 1678 in St. Ours.,Quebec.
He died 21 Jan. 1720 in Contercoeur,Quebec.
If there are any Banlier familes in France who have done any Genealogical Research in the City of Poitiers please contact me.
Thank You very much
