    • His first wife, Dorothée, was a native. He married her in April 1660 at Tadoussac and she died and was buried 13 April 1661, leaving no issue.

      According to the Pelletier family association, this François "is known to have been a fur-trader in the company of Noël Jérémie dit La Montagne, who wed François’ sister Jeanne in 1659. Many years later, on October 22, 1675, François Pelletier dit Antaya and his wife, Marguerite Morisseau purchased the Seigneurie d’Orvilliers from Philippe Gauthier de Comporté. Found on the north shore of the Saint Lawrence River, this fief ran one and a half miles along the river and extended three miles inland. François and Marguerite went on to bequeath one-half of their estate to son Jean-Baptiste dit Pierre Pelletier dit Antaya (1676-1757), while dividing the remaining half among their other surviving children: Michel (c. 1674-c. 1744), Marguerite (1666-????), Marie-Angélique (1662-1741), Geneviève (1668-aft. 1716), and Catherine (c. 1672-aft. 1716)."
