Nicolas Antoine Boyer II was born on February 23, 1679, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, to Nicolas Antoine Boyer I and Marguerite Maclin. [Need birth documentation]
Louise Payet dit St. Amour was born March 5, 1687, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, to Pierre Payet and Louise Tessier. [Need birth documentation: Another note says "She was born March 5 1684/85"]
On August 5, 1689, when Nicolas was 10 years old and Louise was 2 years old, the Lachine Massacre occurred at Lachine, just south of Montreal. Their families would have spent several horrible hours crouched in the house with his family fearing the Iroquois Indians might break through the gates of Montreal.
Nicolas and Louise were married in 1703, the year the war of the Spanish Succession began. Since there was little conflict around Montreal during this war, they survived in relative peace. Nicolas and Louise would have 18 children, all born in Montreal, Canada. Due to the limited records, it would seem Nicolas and Louise lived a peaceful life, most likely as a farmer. [Need marriage documentation: Another note gives date as June 2, 1704, in Montreal, Canada]
