    Notes 
    • Noel was the ship's navigator when Seigneur Robert Giffard or Gifford brought his groups of colonists to Quebec

      Noel Langlois, a courageous fisherman and pilot was born in France in 1606; he settled at Beauport in 1634 and married Francoise Garnier at Quebec on 25 July 1634. They had ten children. Noel is the first ancestor of this large family that is known today under the names of Langlois and Langlais. After the death of his first wife on 1 November, 1665, he married Marie Crevet, widow of Robert Caron on 27 July, 1666, at Chateau-Richer. Noel died at Beauport, on 15 July, 1684.

      The following are extracts from French Canadian & Acadian Review Vol 9:

      P 208-209 Noel Langlois was a native of Saint-Leonardes-Parcs, Canton of Courtomer, arrondissement of Alencon, Department of Orne. This village is in Normandy, close to its boundary with Perche. Actually it is nearer to Mortagne than it is to Alencon...... It has been said that Noel Langlois was a pilot. This is unlikely, since he could neither read nor write. However, it can be said that he was a ship's carpenter, a trade that his sons Jean Langlois dit Boisverdun and Jean Langlois dit Saint-Jean both practiced. As was the custom, they undoubtedly learned this trade from their father.

      In 1665, when Noel Langlois was 59, his wife was gravely wounded. In anticipation of her death, the couple on 31 Oct, 1665, made donations of their property to their two youngest sons. Francoise Garnier died, as expected, and was buried on 1 Nov, 1665.

      In the following year, there was a family dispute over the inheritance of the 3 sons of Noel Langlois. The issue arose over the ownership of property on the Isle of Orleans. In 1663, Nicholas Juchereau de Saint-Denys cosiegneur of the fief La Chavallerie on the Isle of Orleans, son of Jean Juchereau de Maur, granted a concession of this fief to the two youngest sons of Noel Langlois. However, upon the marriage of his oldest son, Jean Langlois dit Boisverdun, to Francois-Charlotte Bellanger, in 1665, Noel Langlois purported to give this property to the young couple. This was followed by the donation of the Beauport property to the two youngest sons. The dispute was settled according to the intentions of Noel Langlois, and the property on the Isle of Orleans went to Jean Langlois dit Boisverdun.

      On 17 July, 1666, Noel Langlois married Marie Crevet, widow of Robert Caron, whom she had married in 1637 at Quebec. Noel Langlois died on July 14, 1684, at age 78 yrs
