note
 [*]  Estimated year
 [1]  Guillaume Fournier may be originated from Coulimer or Coulmer, both villages located in Orne (France). Coulimer is part of Perche but not Coulmer. The surmane Fournier is still used in Coulimer today but not in Coulmer.
 [2]  There is no documented evidence that Eloi Tavernier moved to Canada. According to Mrs. Montagne, he attended the wedding of his daughter Marguerite on May 1, 1644 in Quebec, but according to PRDH, he is not mentioned in the marriage record.
