Jean Elie/Hélie/Hély dit Breton

Jean Elie/Hélie/Hély dit Breton

Jean Elie was born in Ménéac about 1621. He was married to Jacquette Chorret and was the son of Jean and Jeanne Musnier. He emigrated about 1666 to New France. I am looking for any further information about Jean Elie, Jacquette Chorret, and the Musnier family in France. All of the information that I have been able to find of his life in France ends with the above basic information. I am grateful for any help you can provide.

It seems his parents were married in Ménéac (in the departement of Morbihan) on September 17, 1615 but his birth date is unknown (the one born on September 7, 1617 would be a namesake whose parents are Jean ELIE and Jeanne NORMAND).

See his file on the "Fichier Origine" project:

You'll find more about these families on, a lot of french genealogists put their datas online there (the registration is needed to see results but free). Try also all surnames spellings as free membership won't allow you a global search...

For example:

You'll also find the Morbihan records online: but the handwriting will be quite difficult to read so far back in time...

Good luck! ;)
