2007 10 28 search at Ancestry.com for Jean Chauvin b.1561 France turned up 42 member trees, none of which offer a father or mother for Jean.

A search for René Chauvin turned up hundreds of trees which dead end at Jean.


Of the five trees shown above, only one names Jean as father of our René Chauvin.

René Chauvin b.1759 and 1804 are not the same person as our ancestor born about 1600, and the remaining René Chauvin trees do not list parents.

The Genforum threads shown below confirm that, so far, no investigator has been able to go beyond Jean Chauvin.

Author notes: In event you were wondering, the theologian Jean Chauvin, known to the western world by his Latinized name John Calvin, is not our ancestor though his parernts may be.

Calvin was born with the name Jean Chauvin (or Cauvin, in Latin Calvinus) in Noyon, Picardie, France, to Gérard Cauvin and Jeanne Lefranc. Noyon is located about midway between Paris and Dunkerque [Dunkirk] in Picardy not far from the border of Normandy where many of our ancestors originated.

There is extensive information about his life and work at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Calvin and the links to that article. His only known child died in infancy. He had three siblings according to published history sources. Whether or not any of those were ancestral to our Jean Chauvin is open to question at the moment.

Hi, I too am researching this family but not actively at this time.
Marie Marthe Autreuil (Hautreux) was born about 1636.Her parents were Rene Hautreux and Francoise Lachaumerlier. They were married or lived at St Germaine d'Noyen-sur-Sarthe, La Fleche, Angers,Anjou, France. Marie died Feb 25, 1714 at St Francois, Ile Jesus, New France and was buried Feb 22, 1714. She married Pierre Chauvin Sept 16, 1658 bt contract # 15 Basset in Montreal, Quebec, New France (Canada).

I descend from the first daughter Marie Marthe Chauvin.I have copies of the 1666 census of Quebec which show Pierre and Marthe and three children. Also a couple of other articles etc. Lil

I have quite a bit of information on the Chauvin line descended from Rene Chauvin and Catherine Avard - married in 1610. I am descended from their son Pierre b. 1631 in Anjou, France, d. 4 Aug. 1699. Pierre married Marthe Autreuil (b.1636) 25 Feb. 1714. They had 11 children:

Marie-Marthe, Pierre, Barb-Therese, Gilles, Michelle, Jaques, Joseph, Nicholas, Louis, Paul, and Jean Baptise. Joseph, Nicholas, and Louis respectively were surnamed Chauvin-Delery, Chauvin-Lafreniere, and Chauvin-Beaulieu. All three were identified with the very earliest history of the province of Louisiana. They came with Iberville, Sauvolle, and Bienville and took part in the earliest exloring expeditions. The Chauvin brothers were with Iberville and Bienville in the expedition to find the mouth of the Mississippi and assisted in the exploration of the river. Their names are prominent in the early settlement of Louisiana.

I am still researching this line, but I have more information about the 11 children, as well as the descendents of Louis Chauvin Beaulieu(b. 17 Feb 1678 d. Nov 1730). If anyone can give me more information about his father Pierre, grandfather Rene Chauvin and grandmother Catherine Avard I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks for the info. The website is wonderful, and has lots of information on the Chauvins. Rene's parents were JEAN CHAUVIN and RENEE LUDEC who both died before 1620. Catherine Avard's father was MAURICE AVARD who died in Vion, Sarthe, France on April 9, 1627. Catherine had two siblings - Jehanne, and Jehan. Rene & Catherine had 6 children - Jehan, Jean, Renee, Francoise, Pierre, and Antoine.
