Text: In the XVII century, the Perch had too many people for agriculture and small trade. A new attraction for independence and a better knowledge of the New World would generate a move for migration. In 1627, Robert Giffard, physician from Mortagne in Perche, arrived in New France and settled in Beauport, east of Quebec City, where he became the Lord of the place. Wanting to stay there and to found a new establishment, he returned to Perche to recruit fellow citizens. In St. Come he held meetings at the Cheval Blanc (white horse) Inn, in the center of the village. About 35 inhabitants, from 13 families, including the Rocheron/Rochon and the Bisson, decided to follow him, between 1644 and 1662. The Perch, an old French province, with Mortagne as the capital, was located between Normandy and Maine. Today, St. Come en Varais is located in the Loire Country (diocese) of Mans, north of the Sarthe Department (arrondissement) of Mamers, on the N138 Road, at 14 kilometers South-East of Belleme and at 12 kilometers of Mamers. The Municipality has about 1,500 inhabitants. A commemorative plaque hangs in the church and lists the names of the families who arrived in New France at the same time as the Rocheron/Rochon. And thus Simon, Gervais and Marie Rochon arrived in New France in 1657. Mautherine Bisson, 15 years old arrived with her parents Florent Bisson & Jeanne Yvon, and her brother Michael, 13 years old. Later, her second marriage would be to Simon Rocheron. At the time of the census of the Intendant Jean Talon in 1665-66, only 3,215 people from European origin were living in the colony. We think , but it is not without certitude, that the father of Simon, Gervais and Marie was Julien Rocheron, born between 1596 and 1612 (probable in 1607) in Sisson, and died in August 1650. He married Matrine Lemoyne (Lemoine, Lemaire), born around 1611, in St. Cosme en Varais, in Perche on November 1, 1634. Martine died on August 3, 1650. Julien had a sister, Catherine Rocheron, born on June 4, 1606 in St. Come. However doubts subsist if this Julien is in fact the first ancestor of the Rochon in America. The adoption of the Rochon, instead of Rocheron, appeared in New France as soon as the second generation.
