Paul Jean Bertrand dit St-Arnaud was born on 27 Nov 1661 in Ste-Madeline de Verneuil-sur Havre, Normandie, Pays d'Ouche, Perche France.  He died on 27 Jul 1739 in Ste-Genevieve de Batiscan. He was married to Gabrielle Baribeau on 3 Jun 1697 in St-Francois Xavier de Batiscan.  

Present at the marriage of Paul Bertrand and Gabrielle Baribeau were Paul's fellow soldiers, Francois DuMontie, surgeon Jean Baradat, Antoine Brule, Jean-Baptiste Papillau. Jean Grimart, pioneer of Batiscan, who was also present at the marriage of Gabrielle and Guillaume and a friend of both the Baribeau's and Bertrand's. The marriage ceremony took place in the home of Gabrielle's father, Francois, one of the main inhabitants of Batiscan. Gabrielle had two children, François and Louis Bellec from her previous marriage to Guillaume Bellec. Paul Jean Bertrand settled on the Batiscan River in 1697, early records of the family are from the parish of St-Francois-Xavier (1682) , the first church of the town and later in the parish of Ste-Genevieve-de-Batiscan (starting in 1727).

Gabrielle Baribeau was born on 17 Dec 1672 in Charlesbourg, Evesche , PQ.  She died on 2 Mar 1725 in Batiscan , PQ.  Paul and Gabrielle had 8 children, 2 boys, 4 girls and 2 other children that died shortly after birth.


Jean Bertrand was born between 1630 and 1640 in Normandie, Region of Pays d'Ouche, Perche, France. He was married to Marie Nees between 1658 and 1660 in Verneuil-sur Avre , Parish of Sainte-Madeleine. Jean Bertrand and Marie Nee(s) had at least one another child, named Jean. Being named after the father one can assume that he was the first born. I can find no records of Jean at this point other than  he left property to his brother Paul Jean in his will. Paul was assumed dead in New France during the settlement of Jean's estate in Verneuil-sur-Avre. Eventually Paul Jean gave up his claim to his brothers estate because of the cost of lawyer fees and comissions of go-betweens envolved in settlement and travel between Canada and France. It was becoming an exercise of diminishing returns and Paul left it to the decisions made by his brother's daughter who eventually had to sell the bulk of her fathers estate for taxes (and again lawyers) by selling it to an order of nuns in Verneuil. What it does bring to light is that Paul had a brother and the brother a daughter who may have continued the Bertrand family in France. 
    Marie Nees was born between 1630 and 1640 in Normandie, Region of Pays d'Ouche, Perche, France.  Jean Bertrand and Marie Nees had two sons, Jean Bertrand and Paul Jean Bertrand dit St-Arnaud (our ancestor).
