    • Alias Villeneuve, lay, interpreter, Seigneur. Received a grant of land from Governor Louis D'Ailleboust at Three-Rivers in 1649 and in 1661 received a grant at Sillery from the Jesuites. September 6, 1669 he received from Jean Juchereau de Maur a property on Pointe Villeneuve. In 1685, he received a fief and Seigneurie from Jean Talon at Pointe aux Bouleaux. He received letters of patent (nobility) from the King in 1669 but these were nulled in 1669 because they had not been registered.

    • Le 2 octobre 1649, le Gouverneur D'Ailleboust concédait aux frères Mathieu et Charles Amyot " la consistance de 5 arpents de terre situés à Trois-Rivières " Cette concesion était faire routure et aux charges ordinaires. ( Actes de Audouart 20 octobre 1649 )
      Ni Mathieu, ni Charles s'établirent a Trois-Rivières. Ils vendirent leur concession quelques jours seulement après l'avoir reçue.

      Mathieu Amyot épouse le 20 novembre 1650 Marie Minville, fille de Pierre Minville dit le Suisse et de
      Charlotte Mugis. Ces dernier étaient des Suisses qui se sont épousé a Fribourg en 1629.
      Le 19 novembre 1650 le contrat de mariage fut érigés.
      Par ce contrat Mathieu recevait de son beau-père, Pierre Minville une terre situé sur la Grande-Allée a Québec, voisine d'une terre qui possède déja. Mathieu Amyot et sa famille vécurent de 1650-1667 sur cette terre.
      On le retouve sur le recensement de 1666 et de 1667 comme résidant de la seigneurie de Sillery appartenant
      au Jésuites. En 1665 Mathieu obtient deux autres concession. l'une de 3 perches sur 8, et une autre de 5 arpent et 20 perches au lieu appelé Legrangé, près du " Cap au Diamants " ( Terrier pp 42, 43m cf, p, 198)
      Mathieu Amyot et Marie Minville eurent quinze enfants.

      Le 3 janvier 1661 les Pères Jésuites concédaient a Mathieu Amyot encore dans la seigneurie de Sillery, une terre de 3 arpents de front sur 20 arpents de profondeur. Mathieu vécut sur cette terre de 1667-1669.

    • Mathieu Amyot dit Villeneuve

      Le texte suivant est tiré du Recueil de Généalogies, Frère Eloi Gérard, Mariste:

      Son fils Mathieu (fils de Philippe), fut anobli par le roi et reçut en fief la pointe-Villeneuve à Sillery. C'est depuis, que le nom d'amuot fut changé en celui de VILLENEUVE.

      Le texte suivant est tiré du Bulletin des Recherche Historiques :

      Fils ainé de Philippe Amyot et de Anne Convent (Philippe) était né à Chartres en 1628. il se maria à Québec, le 22 novembre 1650, avec Marie Miville, fille de Pierre Miville.

      Le 3 novembre 1672, l'intendant Talon concédait à Mathieu Amyot dit Villeneuve 'trente arpents de terre de front sur cinquante de profondeur, à prendre sur le fleuve Saint-Laurent, du côté du sud, depuis la terre des Ursulines jusqu'aux terres non concédées, en descendant le dit fleuve'.

      M. Amyot dit Villeneuve ayant retardé de prendre possession de sa concession les Dames Ursuline, qui avaient obtenues une augmentation de leur seigneurie, avaient fait par erreur défricher et concédé quelques terres dans la concession de leur voisin. M. Amyot dit Villeneuve ne voulant pas inquiéter ni avoir de contestation avec les Dames Ursulines, se fit concéder par MM. De Denonville et Champigny, le 16 avril 1687, 'l'étendue de terre non concédée entre la concession appartenant aux Religieuses Ursulines nommée Sainte-Croix, et celle de la veuve Duquet, contenant la dite étendue de terre soixante quatorze arpents de front sur deux lieues de profondeur.'

      M. Amyot dit Villeneuve n'habita pas sa seigneurie. Il s'établit à l'anse à Maheu, aujourd'hui dans Saint-Augustin de Portneuf. C'est là qu'il éleva sa nombreuse famille. Avant la construction de la première chapelle de Saint-Augustin, en 1694, c'est dans la maison de Mathieu Amyot que le missionnaire disait la messe dans ses courses évangéliques sur la rive nord du Saint-Laurent.

      Mathieu Amyot dit Villeneuve décéda à Québec le 19 décembre 1688.

    • AMIOT (Amyot), dit Villeneuve, MATHIEU, donné, interpreter, seigneur; b. between 1627 and 1629 probably near Chartres (Orléanais), son of Philippe Amiot and Anne Convent; d. 18 Nov. 1688 at Quebec.

      His father, who came originally from the neighbourhood of Soissons, was at Quebec from the summer of 1635 on. Mathieu, like his brother Jean, was for some years an interpreter for the Jesuits; he worked in their house at Trois-Rivières and perhaps also in the Huron country. Then he became a settler, and during the remainder of his life he managed to accumulate a fairly sizable number of properties. Thus, in 1649, Governor Louis d'Ailleboust made him a grant of land at Trois-Rivières; in addition, on the occasion of his marriage on 22 Oct. 1650, Marie Miville brought him as her dowry a property in the town of Quebec; in 1661 the Jesuits granted him a portion of land at Sillery, where he built a house for himself, whilst keeping his town residence; on 6 Sept. 1665 Jean Juchereau de Maur gave him an estate on Pointe Villeneuve, near Saint-Augustin de Portneuf, which he enlarged in 1677 and 1685; and on 3 Nov. 1672 Talon granted him another domain, as a fief and seigneury, at Pointe aux Bouleaux.

      As his possessions increased, Mathieu became a more and more important person in the colony. A notable at Quebec, he had taken part in the election of a syndic in 1664, and three years later the king acceded to Talon's request to grant him letters of nobility. However, when these letters arrived in 1668 the intendant did not know whether he should have them registered in the Conseil Souverain of Quebec or in the Parlement of Paris. While awaiting the reply from Versailles he learned that Louis XIV had abolished all titles not yet registered (1669). Three other settlers had received letters of nobility at the same time as Amiot. They or their descendants had them recognized despite the 1669 ruling. But as Amiot apparently made no claim in respect of his, they were finally annulled.

      Villeneuve left his heirs more debts and worries than assets. In 1703 the debts encumbering the estate still amounted to 700 livres, and Marie Miville, who had sold the lands for 1,500 livres, had died (September 1702), a victim of the distress caused her by a lawsuit which her son Charles, the eldest of her 15 children, had brought against her.
