Biography Jean Gazaille Bellet

Jean Gazaille aka Bellet, was often confused with or merged to Jean Gazaille aka St. Germain, and for cause! Both individuals were baptized under the name Jean Gazaille at Sarrazac, Dordogne, France. Both of them were soldiers of the Regiment of Carignan-Salieres arriving in New-France in 1665. And their respective wives are both named Jeanne! Furthermore, we suspect them of being cousins because on the baptismal acts of the register of Sarrazac, the godfathers and godmothers of the other children are related to these two families.

Let us clarify at first that Jean Gazaille aka Bellet was soldier of the Company of Pierre de Saint Ours, Esquire of l'Eschaillon, in the Regiment Carignan-Salieres.

He is the legitimate son of Pierre Gazaille Bellet and of Françoise Reparat Jardinier, residents of the Burg of Sarrazac. He is probably born in 1643 but we have no precision on the date. He is baptized on the 13th of September 1643 at the parish St. Hilaire of Sarrazac, Dordogne (24), France. His godfather is Jehan Gazaille and his godmother Jehanne Reparat. The marriage of his parents has not been found yet. It is likely that it took place at Sarrazac, about or before the year 1638, year of the baptism of the first known child. Jean is the third child of a family of four (found so far): Simon (1638), Marguerite (1639) and Anne (1645).

He left La Rochelle, France, on 24 May 1665 aboard the ship St. Sebastien, (or Justice?), and arrived in New-France, on 12 Septembre of the same year. He received the Mount-Carmel scapular in Quebec, on 21 Septembre, 1665. In 1668, he got a concession of two acres frontally by thirty deep acres in the Seignory of St. Ours. A marriage contract is established by the notary Adhemar between Jean Bellet dit Gazaille and Jeanne Bouveau, on 16 April 1674. The couple settled in St. Ours, along the St-Lawrence River.

This couple had 9 children, 7 of them got married and had descendants under the surname Bellet (Blet) for most of them, and also under Gazaille. According to the documents found, Jean is said soldier, farmer and agriculturist. He possibly died in St. Ours, August 17th, 1722 and was buried the same day in Contrecoeur at the age of 82 years old.

We trace his descendants mostly in the region of Sorel, Contrecoeur and Vercheres. From the 17th to the 19th century, the Gazaille aka Bellet were mostly agriculturists even though we see them today in all spheres of the society.

Note on the Regiment of Carignan-Salieres:
Its duty completed, the regiment was called back in February 1668, and returned to France except about four hundred soldiers and thirty officers who preferred to stay to clear the land and settle for ever in the colony. The King of France promoted the settlement. He offered vast Seigniories to the officers who could afford to colonise them. He gave a granting of 150 pounds to sergeants and of 100 pounds to simple soldiers. Officers and soldiers of Carignan settled along the shore of the Richelieu River which had been the theater of their feat of arms.
