Guillaume Leclerc born 1645 in France

#4186
10th great grandfather of Kristina Lee Hewitt

Guillaume Leclerc was baptized on 12 Mar 1645 in St-Jean, Rouen, Normandy, France.  

On 24 Nov 1676 Guillaume Leclerc married Marie-Therese Hunault in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. He was 31 years old and she was only 13 years old.

After the tragic death of Marie-Therese in 1689 (she was cruelly slain by Iroquois in the barn), it does not appear that Guillaume married again, although he was left with several young children to raise.

Guillaume Leclerc died 2 Nov 1723 in Laval, Quebec, Canada, and was buried at St-Francois-de-Sales, Laval, Quebec, Canada.
