When the 200 Canadians with 140 Caughnawaga and Abenaki Indians commanded by Jean Baptiste Hertel de Rouville attached Deerfield MA in late winter on 11 Mar 1703/4, Jacques deNoyon was living there with his new wife, Abigail STEBBINS. They had been married by the protestant minister, John Williams. on 14 Feb 1704 in Deerfield. Although other families suffered severely from the Indian attack, the Stebbins family was not molested. The family of STEBBINS went to Canada with the French and Indian party, partly as captives, partly as relatives of Jacques deNoyon. In the attack 49 persons were killed and about 109 made prisoners. There were 133 survivors left in Deerfield, some wounded.
The captors and captives camped the first night about ten miles from Deerfield, deep snow making an attack on them unrealistic without snowshoes. They traveled northward to Canada in deep snow by the Connecticut Valley, the White and Winooski Rivers to Lake Champlain and then the Richelieu River. Enroute two prisoners made their escape, but 20 were killed. Of the remaining 87, fifty were redeemed before 1731. Most of the prisoners went with the Mohawks to Sault Saint-Louis (Caughnawaga) or with the Abenakis to Saint-Francois-du-Lac. The Stebbins were allowed to go to Boucherville after a short period In Chambly likely under the charge of Hertel.
The ancestry of the STEBBINS family probably goes back to John da STUBING of Essex, England who Is recorded on the chancery rolls in 1201, where there is a town or parish called Stebbing, or to Rlchard de STEBING, living at Great Dunmow, Essex Co. ENG in 1275. No direct connection between the earliest known STEBBINS and the STEBBINS in America or Canada has been established.
Jacques DeNOYON, baptized on 12 Feb 1668 at Trois Rivieres: the son of Jean and Marie CHAUVIN was a coureur de bois and explorer. In 1688 and 1689 with two companions, he traveled Into the northwest from Lake Nipigon as far as Lake of the Woods, Rainy Lake and the present Winnipeg River in Manitoba. All this was when La Vernderaye, the future explorer of the same region was only 2 to 3 years old. So to De Noyon and his companions belongs the honor of the discovery of these western lands. We was on voyageur trips for the fur trade in 1690, 1691,1692 and 1693. On 26 Nov 1700 he (as Jean DENOYON) with Louis GOSSELIN asked the governor of New York to trade and stay at Albany; he was apparently not happy in New France. Suspecting spying intentions, the governor of New York was not favorable. Later in Boucherville Jacques was a sergeant in the Company of Alphonse Tonty. Overwhelmed with debts DeNOYON went to New York first and later to Massachusetts. On the 3rd of February (OS) 1703/4 he was married as James DENYO at the age of 36 in Deerfield MA with 20 year old Abigail STEBBENS by the Protestant minister, Rev. John WILLIAMS. Within that month the French and Indians attacked Deerfield on 29 Feb 1704 (OS) or 11 March 1703/4 (NS), sparing him and his wife's family.
Accompanying the retreating attackers and their captives, perhaps of necessity, he and his wife went to Boucherville PQ, but he left within a few months for Fort Pontchartrain at Detroit. Jacques & Abigail had ten children born in Boucherville from December 1704 to June 1724. An eleventh child was born in Montreal in 1711. Their twelfth child, Marie-Anne, was born at Deerfield MA the 17th of February 1726 where Abigail was visiting and was baptized at Boucherville the 5th of November of the same year shortly after their return to Canada.
The oldest child. Rene DENOYON, having visited his grandparents in 1714 at the age of ten, decided to stay in Deerfield. He was known there as Aaron DENIO and he remained in Deerfield where his grandfather willed him some land. His mother, Abigail STEBBENS visited Deerfield after her father's death where her last child was born. Aaron inherited much of his grandfathers property. He was a shoemaker by trade, but also operated a tavern In Greenfield MA. He served In several military campaigns against the French.
The children of Jean Denoyon and Abigail Stebbins have In interesting history from both sides of their parentage. Jacques DeNOYON was the grandson of Marin CHAUVIN and Gilette BONNE, on his maternal side. When his grandfather, Marin CHAUVIN died at a young age, only one child, Jacques mother, had been born to his grandmother. Gilette BONNE, the widow, at the age of about 17 years, married secondly Jacques BERTAULT.
Gilette Bonne and Jacques Bertault had 6 children. One daughter, Elisabeth, was engaged by a marriage contract at the age of 10 years in 1669 to Charles Denart, a youth of 20 years. The contract was annulled the same year. At the age of 12 and a half Elizabeth Bertault wed Julien de La Touche, a 30 year old veteran of the Carignan Regiment. His farm apparently did not thrive, since Jacques Bertault often invited his daughter for meals and sent her food. La Touche drank heavily and did not get along with his wife. In frustration. Jacques Bertault and Gilette Bonne attempted to poison then killed La Touche. Their crime discovered, they were sentenced to be executed 9 June 1672. Their daughter Elisabeth was sentenced to observe the execution and to pay a fine. In 1673 she married Noel Laurence a 28 year veteran of the Carignan regiment, and later married a third time Jean Baptiste Pilon. The DeNoyon-Stebbens descendents have therefore an ancestry with an execution of a female ancestor, and also origin from an English lineage.
Only after three of her children had been baptized In the Catholic church, was Abigail baptized by Father MERIEL as Marguerite STEBBENS, 24 yrs of age, from Deerfield New England, on 28 May 1708 at Notre Dame de Montreal. Her parents are given as Jean STEBBEN end Dorothee ALEXANDRE. The godparents for Marguerite were Philipe DeRIGAULT Sieur DeVAUDREUIL, Governor General of New France and Marguerite BOUAT.
On 9 July 1708, Abigail petitioned the King's Council for a concession with separate property from her husband, he apparently not being a good provider, and was granted a farm of 75 arpents in Boucherville. The Denoyon family was living with Marie CHAUVIN, Jacques' widowed mother. Detailed information of the family is found in the article by MONTY. In a deed drawn 24 Aug 1708 by Notary Tailhandier, Abigail Stebbens received a farm of 3 arpents frontage by 25 arpents of depth with a house, shed and stable.
Abigail Stebbins received permission along with Andre GRAIN (her brother-in-law), Nicolas PINET (her son-in-law) and Rene LEBEAUX (nephew of captive Christine Otis of Dover NH) to go to Deerfield to visit her relatives. Permission was granted for 3 months leave. Abigail's father had died a few years prior, but her mother was still living, and her oldest son. Jacques Rene / Aaron was in Deerfield. Permission was granted in August 1725 for the group to go by canoe, with a stop at Fort Chambly to report. They went to Albany first then by the Connecticut River southward. Abigail stayed in Deerfield for the birth of her daughter on 27 Feb 1726, then returned to Boucherville about October of that year. She had been gone for about 14 months.

After Ebenezer Stebbens arrived in Canada he lived at the home of Jacques de Noyon in Boucherville. Ebenezer STEBBENS was baptized as Ebenezer Jacques Charles, age 28, at Ste Femille de Boucherville 29 June 1708 just one month after his sister Marguerite was baptized. In May 1714 he received his naturalization as citizen of New France. The godparents were Jacques Charles de SABREVOIS and Jeanne CREVIER, wife of Pierre BOUCHER. Since SABREVOIS was commandant of Detroit from 1714 to 1717, Ebenezer STEBBINS may have gone west with him and settled there. Fournier (1992) says that Ebenezer returned to New England. The History of Deerfield says that Ebenezer was in Canada in 1723.
