    • The Leaflet on the Vienneau family obtained in 1994, gives the sailing period from France to North America as sometime between 1750 and 1756. However, a son is baptized in Quebec city in November 1751 so the sailing must have occurred between 1750 and fall of 1751.-note by A.Owen, March2019

      In the article La Famille Vienneau written by Placide Gaudet and published in l`èvangeline newspaper on 12 July 1974, it mentions that 24 families left France to sail to Maghs (today Machias, Maine). For reasons that have never been known, the captain of the vessel landed them in Quebec city after having been aboard the ship for eleven months. Among these families was that of Michel Vienneau. Tradition reports that Michel was a cartwright and his wife was a shepardess...they arived in Quebec around 1750.

    • Article by Placide Gaudet in L'evangeline newspaper dated 16 Mar 1893 says that when Michel Vienneau died in Sep 1802 he was aged 102 which would mean that he had to be born in 1700 instead of 1710.
    Notes 
    • Discrepancy: Some genealogists and researchers believe that there were only 13 children and not 15 as per Gaudet's note regarding tradition saying there were 15 children. Twelve children are accounted for by baptisms, marriages, etc. It is possible that no children died on the voyage across the Atlantic in either 1750 or 1751.- note by A.Owen Nov 2010.

      From Vienneau Reunion in 1994: The Vianot's were wine-makers in Bollene, France. It is believed that the business fell on hard times due to weather conditions and that Michael Vianot left with his family to sail for North America.

      From Placide Gaudet's papers at CEA,Moncton (copied by A. Owen 1976).-arrived in Quebec with wife,Therese Baude in 1753 from parish of St Martin de Bollene, au diocese de St-Paul des Trois-Chateaux, France. Six of their children perished in the crossing which took many months. This family later settled at Saint Charles de Bellechasse and then around Memramcook. Tradition says there were 15 children from the marriage but the names of only 9 are known. Michel dit Michaud Vienneau died in Sept 1802 on the west bank of the river at Memramcook, aged 100 years and 3 months. His wife died in 1804 at 86 (and probably not 96 years as that would have made her 57 at the birth of her last child).

      From Bona Arsenault, vol.5,p. 2144 -This family was at Saint-Charles de Bellechasse in 1758 and later settled in New Brunswick.

      From Vienneau Family Tree from Philippe & Linda Vienneau - This family left France to move to Cape Breton but the ship did not make it to Louisbourg and landed in Machias, Maine. There they stocked up and then sailed down the St Lawrence River, arriving in Quebec City in 1753. Michel and his family left Quebec City in 1756 to relocate at St Charles de Bellechasse. In 1769 they moved along the St John River to Maugerville, 14 miles below Fredericton. Michel was a great skater and hunter. He became very popular with the Malecite after saving an Indian's life. In 1787 the family moved to Memramcook where Michel later died.
