Notes for Louis GAGNE-GASNIER: Notes for Louis Gasnier-GAGNE: "I, Olivier LeTardif, associate in the BEAUPRE Company for a one eighth share, in my name as well as special and general counsel to Messrs. Berruyer and Cheffault, responsible for the operation of said company by an act passed before Morel and Vasseur, notaries in the district of Paris, the seventeenth day of April, 1646, recognized to have deeded under manorial lease, payable each year on the festival of St. Martin in winter, to Louis Gaigner, the number of five arpents of land, in field and woods, along the great river St. Lawrence with 10 perches of frontage for each arpent and with a depth of up to four and one half miles, situated between land belonging to Pierre PICARD on one side and nondeeded land on the other side along the great river, the remaining land borders on nondeeded property; provided that he is to establish residence there himself, or for someone else, in the current year and to pay on the day of Saint Martin in winter, for each arpent of land along the great river the sum of 20 sous in manorial lease and 12 deniers in fees and tithes when the lease takes effect, and for the said deed, two live capons or twenty sous for each capon at the choice and option of me, LeTardif, and of my successors having the right to the said position in the manorial residence of said BEAUPRE or other location where I happen to reside. The said lease includes lots, seizures, and foreclosures according to the customs of the PROVOST and viscounty of Paris, should occasion arise. Said Louis Gaigner may not hunt or fish on the present deed without the consent of his neighbors. There is to be a path 15 feet wide from one end of his holdings to the other and along the great river to serve as a path for navigation. In case the said LeTardif builds a mill, said Gaigner will be required to take his grain there to be milled. The common meadows that are in front of his property may not be mowed to his profit. To avoid any disputes and to maintain peace among his holdings, said Louis Gaigner is to gradually enclose his lands as they are cleared; in case this is not done, said Gaigner may not derive any benefit from the damages or offenses that his livestock may cause his neighbors. He and his rightful heirs are to use and dispose of this deeded property as they see fit. Accorded in witness thereof, I have signed the present deed in Quebec the 20th day of October,1650

A neighbor, Louis Guimont, was killed at Auriesville according to a letter dated June 8, 1661 in the Jesuit Relations, a multi-volume history of the missionaries of that era. [MASTER CLOUTIER.FTW]
