I remember this being discussed on the Acadian-Cajun List some time ago.
Try searching their archives and see what you get. There are a few great
Acadian researchers on that list.

Stephen White in the DGDFA gives the following
Savoie v 1651 ( married about 1651)
Franocis Savoie n v 1621 ( Rc PR 1671 50a);laboureur
Catherine Lejeune ( soeur d'Edmee Lejeune espe Francois Gautrot) n v 1633

Francoise married Jean Corporon
Germain married Marie Breau dit Vincelotte
Marie married Jacques Triel dit Laperriere
Jeanne married Etienne Pellerin
Catherine married Francois Levron dit Nantois
Andree married Jean Prejean dit le Breton
Marie married Gavriel dit Pierre Chaisson

I would be interested in anything you find out about this couple as they are
my husbands 8th and 9th grandparents 4 times over

A friend send me this question!
Anyone ever research Francois SAVOYE & Catherine LEJEUNE mar.1652 Port Royal
Acadia. It is said that he is the son of Tomaso Francesco de Savoy & Marie
de Soissons de Bourbon mar 14 April 1625 in Paris France, but Francois was
born in 1621 Turin, Piedmont, Savoy, Italy. The story is that he's their
illegitimate son , the Savoye is a royal's never been proven that he is their son...but info saying so was
found from more than one source.
Would some one have the exact marriage date for Francois & Catherine and
maybe the parents.
While the had many children only one son, Germain, would carry on the Savoie
name (in Acadia).
Thanks for your help
