You're welcome! ;)

As for Jean Baptiste's ancestry, yes I think so, provided he was really your ancestor and not just an homonym. If so, Charles was in fact born in France (in St.Thomas parish of La Flèche, departement of Sarthe) while his wife Marianne BASTARACHE is said to be born in Port-Royal. Her parents were from Bayonne, in the "Basque Country", an area of France near the Spanish frontier which has a strong cultural identity:

I've found many different birth dates for Charles Orillon which can be explained because we don't have the original parish records anymore for this period. Only indexes survived but there is listed a baptism for one Charles ORILLON on April 29, 1666.

These data seem quite correct:

You'll find Sarthe archives on-line here:
- choose FLECHE (LA) to get the list of all available records
- microfilm 1Mi_270_R01: parish St. Thomas, répertoire des baptêmes garçons /filles = baptisms index boys/girls (an V = 1797)
. page 58: Charles Orillon baptism listed (29 avril 1666)
. page 235: Marriage of Julien "Apurillon" et Anne Roger (14 sept 1659)
. page 33: Baptism of Jullien Aurillon (20 avril 1633)

Also, one of their Canadian descendent, Michèle CHAMPAGNE has studied this family in details for many years and she's even published a book about them:

Sorry, all this is in French but you'll get at least an idea of the content with|en|

Good reading!
