Called La Chine

Claude Dudevoir dit Lachine and Barbe Elisabeth Cardinal were my daughter's 9th great-grandparents.  It's an assumption that Dudevoir and Dudenois were two names for one individual; both are represented below.

On the 19th of June 1721, Montreal experienced the worst fire in its history.  At least 126 homes and buildings were partially or totally destroyed.

Claude dit Lachene and Barbe Cardinal were parties to a contract in May of 1725:

Contract between Julien Trotier Desrivieres and....Dudenois, called La Chine, and his wife, Barbe Cardinal (excerpted below):


Contract....for a fur trading expedition to Miamis and Ouiatenon.
