Our Ancestors

Until this week, I was under the impression that all Trottier in America came from my ancestor Jules (Gilles) Trottier. But I have since learned that an Arthur Trottier also from France started a branch in Manitoba.

From St-Martin-d'Igé, France (My ancestor)

Most of the Trottier in America appear to come from an ancestor that came to Québec in 1646 with his wife Catherine Loiseau and their six children, the last one having been born during the crossing. 

Jules (Gilles) Trottier was born about 1591 in St-Martin-d'Igé, Mortagne, Perche, France.  He died on 10 May 1655 in Trois-Rivières, Trois-Rivières, QC.  He was a farmer and carpenter. He was married to Catherine Loiseau in 1625 in St-Martin-d'Igé, Mortagne, Perche, France.  Catherine Loiseau was born in 1596 in St-Martin-d'Igé, Mortagne, Perche, France.  She died on 28 Jan 1656 in Trois-Rivières, Trois-Rivières, QC. He initially settled on a farm in Portneuf, then moved to Trois-Rivières and finally settled in Cap-de-la-Madeleine.

Jules Trottier is my eight great-grandfather via his son Jean-Baptiste. My great-grandmother was Marie Délima Trottier m.1887.

From France to Manitoba

Arthur Trottier, born in France on 2 Mar 1879 came to Manitoba in 1897 and worked as a laborer. This information was found on Ancestry.com and the data came from a database for the MacDonald District, Manitoba Census, 1901: Neepawa and Lansdowne. It was communicated to me by Jackie Drews of Missoula, Montana. If you have more information on this branch, please contact me since this branch in unconfirmed as of now.

Trotchie Reunions

Jackie Trotchie has a Trotchie connection which connects to Andre Trottier who married Marguerite Pacquette. However, Thomas Edworthy has made the connection from Andre Trottier to Jules Trottier. Jackie organized a reunion in Joseph Oregon in August 2001 and one in Montana in 2005. And Jackie tells me that this last one was also a success although it was smaller. If you would like to know more about it, contact Jackie.
