     At the time of François' birth, tradition wanted the Godfather to leave his first name to his Godson. This sometimes caused difficulty, especially if the Godfather had social stature. Thus, François had as his Godfather François Clement, one of the one hundred Swiss in the king's guard corps, and as his Godmother, Suzanne Poirier.
     François inherited his parent's property. When François signed his marriage contract before notary Paul Vachon on 31 January 1679, Jacques Vezina and Marie Boisdon took advantage of the occasion to give François all their furnishings and real estate. François was charged with caring for them during their lifetime, and after their death to pay one hundred sixty livres to his siblings, "including 100 livres tournois given to each at their marriage contracts, on the condition that the above mentioned ceded to François all their rights to the future succession of the said Jacques Vezina and Marie Boisdon." Jacques and Marie spent their old age at their home, which had become the home of François. (4)
