    Notes 
    • 1667 Census declares him as living on Charlesbourg at the age of 44 years.
      "On 22 Feb 1671 Guillaume Fournier, from the St Charles area of Quebec offered (Jean Prou) 150 livres for his property..."
      "Charlotte de Poitiers should have inherited the som of 1660 livres from her first husband after having her marriage contract reviewed by the Sovereign Council in 1663. The money seems to have gone to her in-laws, Guillaume Fournier and Francoise Hebert who, by way of compensation, offerend her 11 arpents of cleared land in the Grande-Alee...feeling that she had been cheated Charlotte bought suit against her relatives before the S.C. on 26 Jan 1664. On 11 Nov 1668, a special commission was named to estimate the real value of the 11 arpents; it made a report on 27 Mar 1670 decreeing that the land was worth but 525 livres. In order to make up for the missing 1,000 livres, Simon and Charlotte asked the heirs of the Hebert family to relieve them in perpetuity of all rents, both in silver and in capons, on their concession on the St-Charles river. The council found this offer to be reasonable and approved it in a judgement rendered on 14 Apr 1670.
      "In his catalogue of immigrants, the historian Marcel Trudel mentions that Guillaume was among those to arrive in a fleet in 1651, the first ship of which arrived on August 18."
