Was my ancestor a Carignan soldier?

My Andre I'm told,was born April 28, 1666 in St Porchaire,France, came to New France and married a Fille du Roi who was 20 years older than he. (Married for less than one year to FdR Francoise Baiselat in 1693. He then married Charlotte Poutre dit Lavigne in 1695.)I've seen him mentioned as a Carignan soldier on a Fil du Roi site as Francoise's third marriage. Wasn't he born too late to be considered one of the Carignan?? Could the Tranchmontagne listed on the 1668 Carignan list for the area of La Brisardiere be a different person? What proof can I have that my Andre Corbeil dit T. was a soldier-or something else?

Re: Was my ancestor a Carignan soldier?

Yes, I agree that he was not a Carignan soldier. André Corbeil dit Tranchemontagne was a soldier in the Crisafy company, which was part of a later military unit in New France, and he was not part of the Carignan-Salières Regiment. René Jetté (Dictionnaire..., 1983, at p. 269) lists his marriage to Françoise Baiselat on January 4, 1693 in Pointe-aux-Trembles. They had one child. Françoise was the widow of Pierre-François Marsan dit Lapierre, her 2d marriage (in 1670), with whom she had 10 children; and she died months after her marriage to André, on the day she gave birth to their child, and was buried the same day, May 30, 1694 in Pointe-aux-Trembles. Her first marriage was to Laurent Cambin dit Larivière (he had died;they had married in 1668), and they had one child.

André then married Charlotte Poutré on Feb. 14, 1695 in Pointe-aux-Trembles (marriage contract Feb 12th before notary Adhémar). It was her first marriage, and they had 11 children.

Françoise's 2d husband Pierre was a Carignan soldier from the Chambly company; her first husband Laurent was a sargeant in the DuGué company, Chambellé Regiment, seconded to the Carignan Regiment. Françoise was from Paris; André was from St-Porchaire (Saintes), Saintonge, in Charente-Maritime.
