Moreover, in that era the rules of spelling were flexible, to say the least.
The different spellings used for the family name of the child and his father can be explained by the fact these names had perhaps previously been written down only rarely.
From 1604 to 1607, the search went on for a suitable permanent site for them.
It led to the establishment of a short-lived settlement at Port Royal (Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia.) While the settlers were tilling, building, hunting and fishing, Champlain carried on with his appointed task of investigating the coastline and looking for safe harbours.
What are the chances of finding another baptismal certificate dating from this era where the names are identical to those we find in other historical documents? However, even though the family names of Chapeleau and Champlain are similar, this small difference — understandable as it may be — cautions us not to jump to conclusions.The three years stay in Acadia allowed him plenty of time for exploration, description and map-making.He journeyed almost 1,500 kilometres along the Atlantic coast from Maine as far as southernmost Cape Cod.But things were to take a different turn in the spring of 2012 when Jean-Marie Germe, a French genealogist, was examining the archives of the Protestant parish of Saint Yon de La Rochelle.In Champlain’s time, La Rochelle was a neighbouring town and rival of Brouage. Germe found there was the baptismal record of Samuel Chapeleau, son of Antoine Chapeleau and Marguerite Le Roy, dated August 13, 1574.He visited Porto Rico (now Puerto Rico,) Mexico, Colombia, the Bermudas and Panama. He was an indefatigable explorer – and an assistant to other explorers – in the quest for an overland route across America to the Pacific, and onwards to the riches of the Orient.[“Concerning the Primitives: Or Travels of Samuel Champlain of Brouages, Made in New France in the Year 1603”], Samuel de Champlain indicated that he was a native of Brouage in the Saintonge region of France.In 1608, Champlain proposed a return to the valley of the St.Lawrence, specifically to Stadacona, which he called Quebec.However, by the time he undertook his voyages of discovery and exploration to Canada, he had definitely converted to Catholicism.The marriage contract between Samuel de Champlain and Hélène Boullé, dated 1610, shows that he was the son of the then-deceased sea captain, Anthoine de Champlain, and Marguerite Le Roy.
