"" "JAMES or JACQUES dit LANGLAIS, Guillaume [William] (son of
Nicolas James and Christine North), born in November 1683 near Winbron, county of Dorchester, England; baptized 06 January 1698 in Montreal; died
cote St. Leonard and buried 02 September 1722 at Riviere-des-Prairies;
etait a la Baie Verte (Terre-Neuve) en September 1696 ou il fut pris
janvier 1697 par Claude Robillard, soldat d'Iberville; pensionnaire chez Leonard Chaigneau in 1698; married on 05 February 1703 in Montreal to
LIMOUSIN, Catherine (daughter of Hilaire Limousin and Antoinette
Lefebvre); she remarried in 1724 to Mathieu MORIN"
NOTE: The "Jacques dit Langlais" were other names that he was
known by. I have found that this use of "dit names" was not uncommon with
French Canadian names in Quebec.
