Looking for info on Simon Bourg m. Helen Comptee.
Simon is the father of Antoine Bourg.
My line is Antoine-Abraham-Charles-Joseph-Charles-Leandre Charles-Adam Joseph-John Joseph-Me! Any help is appreciated.

Do you know if he had a daughter named Perrine. I have a father Bourg b. 1583 France, but no first name.

Yes, I show that Simon had a son, Antoine Bourg, and daughter, Perrine Bourg.(b.1626?) Perrine, her second husband, Rene Landry, Antoine, and his wife Antoinetee Landry(Rene's sister) were some of the first families to arrive in Acadia. "Records show that they probably came from the estates of Charles D'Aulnay or from the estates of D'Alunay's mother, noear or in Martaize, department de la Vienne, France."

Still trying to find info on Simon and wife, Helen Comptee.

Helene Comptee
Birth: 1579 in Martaizé, Vienne, Poitou-Charentes, France Death: 1628 in Martaizé, Vienne, Poitou-Charentes, France
The records show her dying in Martaize which is a pretty good distance from Loudun where Simon died. This may need further research.
Antoine Bourg
Birth: 1609 in Martaize, Loudun, Vienne, France
Death: 1686 in Port Royal, Acadia, Nova Scotia, Canada
Perrine Bourg
Birth: 1620 in Loudun, Vienne, Poitou-Charentes, France Death: 1686 in Spain
Antoine's spouse
Antoinette Landry
Birth: 1618 in Loudun, Vienne, Poitou-Charentes, France, Death; 1686 in Port Royal, Acadia, Nova Scotia, Canada
1.) Antoine Bourg and Antoinette Landry married in France and renewed their marriage vows in Acadia. That's why you see two marriage citations with two different dates. People did that when they left the old country for the new.
2.) Martaize, France – current population 414
Center of France, southwest of Paris
The timezone in Martaize is Europe/Paris
Latitude. 46.9166667°, Longitude. 0.0666667°
Forest(s); an area dominated by tree vegetation.
2.) There is a DNA group for the Bourg family.
4.) So far there are no hard copy or internet records on Simon Bourg to be found. Researchers deny Granddejean. That is also a nickname for Big John.
5.) If you do a Google search for Antoine and Antoinette you will come up with a website for a couple who visited Martaize and posted photos.

No evidence supports Antoine Bourg and Perrine Bourg being brother and sister. In fact, absence of dispensations for subsequent generations marrying would seem to demonstrate that they were NOT brother and sister.

Sorry -
Yes dispensations prove relationship.
BUT lack of dispensations does not prove NOT a relationship.
It only implies.
Look in your own tree especially with 2nd cousins that should have dispensations but do not. It is only as good as what the people tell the priest.
