Notes:
From the Viens Family Genealogy Web Site:
Two notarized transactions dating from 1669 and 1672 seem to indicate that Vivien Jean and his wife would have come over in a contingent brought by Intendant Jean Talon. Talon was Intendant or Royal Governor for New France from March 1665 until Octovber 1668. During his term as Governor he tried to establish three model towns, which he called Bourg Royal, Bourg-la-Reine, and Bourg Talon, named after himself. He established the towns over the objections of the Jesuits who were segneurs there. He wanted these towns to be close to each other so that they could help each other, especially agains Indian attacks. Talon himself recruted colonists in France in 1665. The Viens/Drouet couple seem to have come by design of and under the protection of Talon. Notary Romain Becquet's contract of March 7, 1669 dealt with land in Bourg Talon, which could be cultivated with pick and hoe. Vivien Jean took a harvest lease for two years. He was promised seeds and necessary victuals during the first year, the cost of which was to be deducted from the revenue from the first harvest. Jean was also to be helped by one man to thrash the grain. The contract did not delimit the extent or boundaries of the land, on which stood a cabin and a barn. At this time, 1669, Viven Jean was 50 years old.

Their first child was a girl, Marie, born on October 15, 1669 and baptized on October 20 by a priest at the Seminary of Quebec. The baptismal record indicates that she was the daughter of "Vien Igeon and Elisabeth Drouet". A second child, called Pierre was born on September 19, 1672 and was baptized in the chapel of Beauport, northeast of Quebec by Father Guillaume Mathieu, on September 25, 1672. After the birth of their son Pierre, the couple moved to Beaumont on the southern shore of the St. Laurent River. There is a baptismal record of a Jean-Baptiste Gonthier, on December 26, 1680, where Elisabeth Drouet was the godmother. Marie Jean received the sacrament of Confirmation at Beaumont on August 9, 1681, when she was 11 years old. Strangely the family is not listed among the residents of Beaumont when the census was taken in the fall of 1681. At that time there were only 20 households in the town, including 5 bachelors.
