Although technically not a Quebec Pioneer, Philippe was the father of several.
Philippe Amyot arrived in Canada in the summer of 1635 from Soissons. He was accompanied by his wife, Anne Convent, and two sons, Jean and Mathieu.
On August 26 1636, he baptised another son, Charles at Québec.
Four years after his arrival in New France, Philippe Amyot died. However, through his sons, Mathieu and Charles, he established a long line of descendants which today number in the thousands.
