John Blaney and Angélique Desnoyers

The first record of a Blaney in Québec found so far is that of the marriage of "Jean" (John) Blaney, son of Jean Blaney of Ireland and Marie Cunningham, to Angélique Desnoyers in St-Andre, Kamouraska on 30 April 1816. [1]

John Blaney and Angélique Desnoyers had the following children:

2 i. Marie Marguerite Blaney was born in 1814, 23 months before the marriage of her parents. She was listed as present at their wedding. She married Thomas Johnston on 22 August 1837 in Kamouraska. [8]
3 ii. John Blaney was born in St-André on 20 January 1817 and baptized the following day. [9] He was living in the parish of St-Roch in Québec City, working as a shoemaker like his father, when he died at the Hôtel Dieu de Québec on the morning of 8 March 1842. He was buried there the next day. [10] Although the burial record gives his age as 28, no record has been found for a John Blaney baptized c. 1812-14, nor is a son mentioned at the marriage of John's parents in 1816, although John's sister Marie Marguerite (born 1814) is mentioned as present at the wedding. The John who died in 1841 is very likely the same individual born in St-André in 1817.
4 iii. James Blaney married Emilie Fontaine at the Church of Notre Dame-de-Québec, Québec City on 20 April 1847. [11]
5 iv. Louis Blaney was born 25 August 1818 in Ste-Anne-de-la-Pocatière, Kamouraska. [12]
5 iv. Daniel Blaney was born 19 February 1822 in St. Patrice-de-Rivière-du-Loup. [13]
6 v. Jean Blaney was born 2 May 1826 in Rivière-du-Loup. [14]
7 vi. Théophile Blaney was born 4 July 1828 in Rivière-du-Loup. [15]
8 vii. Marie Blaney was born 25 October 1830 in Rivière-du-Loup. [16]
9 viii. Sarah Blaney was born c. 1831 and died 13 November 1859 in Québec City. [17]
10 ix. Thomas Blaney was born 2 August 1835 in Rivière-du-Loup. [18]
11 x. Brigitte Blaney was born 4 July 1838 in in Rivière-du-Loup. [19]
12 xi. William Blaney married Euphosine Fontaine on 17 November 1857 in Québec City. [20]
13 xii. Victoire-Philomene Blaney married Jean Baptiste Renaud on 23 June 1862 at Iles de Montréal, Québec. [21]
