    Francois Belanger was baptized on October 7, 1612 at St. Pierre, Seez, Normandie, France. "O n the seventh day of October (1612) was baptized Francois Belanger, son of Francois Bellange r and Francoise Horlays. he was named after the honorable Francoise Dumes-nil, Squire of St.- Teny, and by the honorable Nicholas Bougis, Sieur de Fosses, and demoiselle Loyse Gurou, wif e of Squire Guillaume Lepaulnier, Sieurde la Chapell" On June 26, 1636 he witnessed the marri age of Robert Drounin and the ten year old Ann Cloutier. His bold signature to the marriage c ontract denoted a degree of education superior to that of the average settler. On July 12, 16 37 he took a thirteen year old Marie Guyon, dughter of Jean and Mathurine Robin. The marriag e contract was blest by Father Charles Lallemant, actign as curator of Notre-Dame-de-Agnes. F rancois Belanger was a mason, an active and resourceful, informed,and honest businessman. H e was soughtafter as an expert appraiser. He was also authoritative, violent, and tenacious i n his demands. He was better educated than his fellow citizens, and he sought to impose his w ill on them in a thousand and one ways. From the time of his arrival in Canada, Francois Bela nger worked for seigneur Robert Giffard. OnAugust 9, 1653 the Journal of Jesuits reports Fran cois Belanger was chosen for the important office of mayor of the citizens in the Quebec regi on near LonguePointe. This area would become the parish of St-Anne-de-Beaupre. Also elected t o the town council were Thomas Hayot, Charles Legardeur de Tilly, christopheCrevier dit Lames lee, Guilaume Peltier, Peirre Picard, and Francois Bissot. At this time Francois Belanger an d Masse Gravel worked a concession together on theBeaupre coast. On March 24, 1655 Gravel sol d his share of the business toBelanger for 100 livres per arpent, payable in three installmen ts on St.-Jeans's Day. Francois Belanger secured the debt by pledging all his property as wel l asthe present and futre inheiritance of all his children. On March 23, 1660 thedebt was pai d in full. In 1662 Francois Belanger was named trustee of the affairs of the children of Oliv ier Le Tardiff, co-seigneir and Justice of the Peace of Beaupre. Francois Belanger sold two o xen to Romain de Grepagny for the sum of 300 livres, payable in silver, in beaver pelts, or i n valid currency. In1667 Francois Belanger had 50 arpents under cultivation and thirteen anim als which made him one of the richest men of that time. In 1669 he was named Captain of the M ilitia of the Beaupre coast. As Captain of the Militia his duties were "the heads of municipa l organization in each village. he had to carry out the governor's ordinances, and supervis e the construciton and maintainceof roads." Francois Belanger earned a reputation as an hones t man but a hardman to dobusiness with. He had lawsuits against his brother-in-law Simon Guyo n that Belanger lost and had to pay damages. Earlier he lost another lawsuit to his former pa rtner Masse Gravel over property boundaries. He fought with his son-in-law, Bertrand Chesna y de la Garenne over accounts. He interferred in the affairs of his daughter Mathurine Belang er, our relative, the widow of Jean Maheu, concerning a house that bordered the property of E teinne Blanchon and his wife Anne Convent in the Lower Town of Quebec. In July 1, 1677 Franco is Bedlangerobtained a vast concession from Governor Frontenac, a league of frontage and tw o leagues of depth on the south bank of the river at Bonsecours. "The land israther level, sp rinkled with plowed up stones, and marginally produces all sorts of grains, vegetables, and p asturage. The fruit trees produce abundantly." The census of 1681 places the Belanger famil y in the seigneury of Bellechasse.Four servants worked for the family -- Jean de la Voye, Bar thelemy Gobeil, Pierre Lafaye, and Pierre Mataule. On October 25, 1685 Francois Belanger will ed all his property to his son Jacques,
