Antoine or Louis Brule Descendants
Looking for any descendants of Antoine Brule dit Francoeur(b. circa 1667 in France) and his son Louis Brule (possibly b. circa 1712)in Quebec.
I don't know if I'm the one you're looking for,
but my father was Benoit L. Brulee, from Louisana.
I happened along this web site, after watching the
antiques road show on the PBS channel. This
sparked me to look up my ancestory. Then I happened
along this site and found your message. In the
previous pages there was a G.B. Brulee, who
I'll call tomorrow. This is facinating!

I think I can direct you to more Brule Family information.
Sandy, I know my grandfather, Henry Brule, came from Quebec, Canada. He was a lumberjack. He married Rosina-Anne Gray or Grey (not sure on the spelling of my grandmother's maiden name.
They moved from Canada to Massachusetts. (I'm not sure when.) My father is Oscar J. Brule, and was born in Westport MA. When my grandparents died they lived on Grove St.in New Bedford MA. Do you know anything else?
Antoine Brule dit Francoeur
I have an Antoine Brule dit Francoeur in my family tree, born 1655 in l'Ile-Dupas (France? Quebec?) He married Marie Angelique Melain (b. about 1686) on October 1, 1711 in Montreal. I have no Louis in any of my Brules.
Do you fit into any of these?
Denise - The Antoine,listed in "Dictionnaire Genlogique des Familles du Quebec," as one of the children of Antoine Brule dit Francoeur and Francoise Angelique Meline, is "my" Antoine Louis Brule. He was b. 9/22/1716. Antoine Louis m. Madeleine de Billy on 2/13/1736. Where does your family connect to the family? Sandy
My Antoine Brule was born December 29, 1724
and I have him married to Marie-Joseph Ethier
but don't have the marriage date.
I'm wondering if they are one and the same?
Sorry Sandy, I kind of gave you the wrong
impression in my previous message.
Your Antoine Louis is the brother of Joseph
Brule on my tree. So I guess, somewhere along
the way we could be related. Let me know if
you need any more info, or if you have any for
me, i.e. copies of birth certificates and marriages.
Brule Family in Early Quebec
Denise - Back in the early 1980s, I hired a researcher in the Trois Rivieres area to help me get started on tracing my family lines in Quebec. I read very little French so needed help making inroads into available early Quebec information. Once this researcher had given me some of the basic information, I was able to pursue research on my own. At that time, he sent me copies of "records" and you might be interested in the name of these records: 1)"Inventaire des Greffs des Notaires du Regime Francais - Presse, H. 1736-1746 Rigaud, E.F. 1750-1778." (Also, the name Jules Martel was on the front cover so he must be the compiler of the information.) This document had records of Antoine Louis Brule's daughter's wedding to Antoine Lupien-Baron in Jan 5, 1771. 2)"Repertoire des Actes de Bapteme, Mariage, Sepulture et des Recensements du Quebec Ancien"-Volume 27, Rive Sud de Gouvernement de Montreal 1730-1749. (Publisher: Les Presses de L'Universite De Montreal 1985.)This 2nd document had a records of St Pierre-de-Sorel marriages and had the record of the marriage of Antoine Louis Brule Madeleine Billi/or de Billy in 1736. This second document also had a record of the marriage of Joseph's and Louis' sister's wedding, Marie Madeleine marriage to Antoine Moreau. I only have the one page copied (#26)so the document might also have a record of the marriages of "your" Joseph? I believe Joseph was married 3 times?
Unfortunately,I do not know how you find these records I mentioned and, after so many years, I have not been able to relocate this researcher. Sandy
Thank you Sandy. I have a knowledge of the
French language but am not fluent. However,
my cousin gave me an address that you might
wish to try. I got a marriage document through
