From Lucy LeBlanc Consentino: I asked Stephen White what he thought about Brenda Dunn's ten page article, etc. His response:
<< "Not much. One only has to refer to page 1425 of the DGFA to know that. The record of the rehabilitation of Jean Roy's daughter Anne's marriage in 1706 states quite baldly that Anne's mother was a "Sauvagesse." If her father were an African, would the same priest have described him simply as a native of St-Malo? I think not. Regarding the 1686 census reference to "Laliberté Le Neigre," I should perhaps have noted on page 1426 of the DGFA that the probable significance of "Le Neigre" is that Laliberté lived there, as Father d'Entremont suggested. This reference to Le Neigre might of course mean something else, perhaps even that this "Laliberté" was not in fact Jean Roy, but it cannot be taken to mean that Jean Roy was an African in the light of what it says in the above-mentioned record concerning his daughter. And given that the husband of the "Sauvagesse" was born at St-Malo, it is unlikely that he could have been the same Jean Roy who was a native of "Aluert," according to the 1673 census of Plaisance, unless "Aluert" should prove to be a place somewhere in the diocese of St-Malo. Unfortunately, given that no one has been able to identify "Aluert," it is unlikely that such a place does or did exist within the confimes of that diocese. Additionally, both Jean and Roy are very common names, and there is nothing surprising in the supposition that there might have been one man with the name Jean Roy in Plaisance and another with that name in Acadia. In my opinion, one must suppose that there were two Jean Roys, unless and until some solid evidence should come to light showing that they were one and the same.
'It is surprising, however, to see that Ms. Dunn on page ten of her article has failed to realize that the Joseph LeBlanc who aided Duvivier's expedition was the well-known Le Maigre, and not someone nicknamed "Le Neigre," which is a rather obvious misreading. >>
'I have noticed at least two more errors. On page two she says Charles Melanson had eight girls before he had a boy, but there were only five girls born before his son Charles (and she correctly calls Charles the sixth child on her page six, thus contradicting herself). The second mistake concerns Jean Belliveau fils, who she claims on page five was a sailor by 1683, but Jean was only nine years old then, so I think her claim is at the very least extremely questionable; the Jean Belliveau who was the sailor in 1683 must have been instead the boy's father, who was around thirty or thirty-one at the time.">> Lucie LeBlanc Consentino www.acadian-home.org -- Rice, Humphrey, Shattuck, Gervais, Beaudette, Angell and allied lines : Name: Jean Roy , dit Laliberte Birth: 1648 in St-Malo, France Death: in Acadia around 1671 Note: "Jean Roy (or Jean LeRoy also known as Laliberte or yet still Jean Roy dit Laliberte) was born at St-Malo, France in 1648.
