    Notes 
    • Note that Monsieur Pierre Le Clercq subsequently found a notary document that proved that Gail Moreau-DesHarnais was correct in claiming that Catherine Byot was baptized on 25 May 1631 in Saint-Jean in Joigny. In notary Bouyn's records in the Archives, a contract written on 2 May 1660 under the watchful eye of a constable named Edmé Maure, in which Françoise Bossuat, as well as her five surviving children and her son-in-law Antoine Roy, who were all Jacques Byot’s lawful heirs, gave several plots of land and meadows in Bussy-en-Othe and Avrolles to Edmé Byot, a ploughman living in Avrolles, and to Nicolas Préau, a lawyer dwelling in Bussy-en-Othe. (Source: Archives départementales de l’Yonne (France), bundle 3 E 40 - 3)

      Just because Antoine is representing Catherine Byot in this contract, we cannot tell if she is still living or already deceased because at that time in France a woman did not have rights except through her husband, unless she was a widow which is why Françoise Bossuat is mentioned in the contract.

(source Archives départementales de l’Yonne (France), bundle 3 E 40 - 3) The fact that her son-in-law, Antoine Roy is representing his wife, Catherine Byot, does not indicate that she deceased at the time of this contract, since women in France at the time only had rights as a widow and not as a wife.].
