Subject: [QUEBEC] Fw: [ACGSTalk] Thomas DRUE/DREUX & Marie BANQUART/BUNKER; m. before 1670

After I asked the following message I went surfing and found the following on Ancestry.com:
Thomas DRUE (s/o William DREW & Elisabeth MATHEWS) m. Marie BANQUART Sep 1683 at Dover, Stratford, NH. Thomas b. 1665 at Oyster River, Stratford, NH; d. 1734 (place not given). Marie b. 1664 at Dover, Stratford, NH. William b. 1627 at Devonshire, England. Elisabeth b. 1628 at Devonshire, England.
Further PRDH does have the 20 October 1709 baptism at Quebec of Marie-Anne-Lydia DREU, age 13 (d/o Thomas [Tonnelier] & Marie BUNKER both of "Oister River"). The footnote says that Marie-Anne was born in the Spring of 1696 in New England; was taken by the Abenakis in the month of June 1707; and was presently living at the home of M. DESMONSTIER. M. DESMONSTIER was shown as the secretary to Philippe DERIGAULT DEVAUDREUIL, Governor General of Nouvelle France who also witnessed the baptism. Jette shows the baptism of Marie-Anne-Lydia DREW.
So I now have the story on my ancestor but can anybody cite a recognized authority for the information about the birth/death/marriage years/places for William & Elisabeth and William's parents? Does Drouin's "Dictionnaire national des Canadiens francais" (DNCF) mention Thomas and/or Marie?

I have just came across a third brick wall in my ancestry. PRDH tells us that Thomas & Marie married before the end of 1696 but location and parents are not given. The only child of record is their daughter Marie-Anne who married Etienne LAFOND in Batiscan in 1732. Tanguay and Jette don't mention Thomas & Marie.
Need additional info on Thomas & Marie.
