parent surname ancestors

Journal by jrobidoux1

I have been searching for years for my ancestors on the Parent side of the family. I have read that there were originally 3 families of Parent who came to Quebec from France I believe at the request of the king. Starting at the top with who I believed was my oldest ancestor, Andre Parent and his son Pierre, I can't connect the genealogy to the bottom of my family tree starting with me (maiden name Parent). My father was Bertrand Parent (1922-1984), his father was Napoleon Parent (1890-1972), his father was George Parent (1857-1931). The problem is that I am having trouble with the next name after that. I found a Charles Parent (1833-1906) that I believed was George's father but I can't get anywhere after that. So either Charles is not the next grandfather in line or this name is keeping me from progressing any further. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Thank you. I thought that I was part of the Andre Parent lineage but obviously I had t he wrong child from his marriage to Marie Coudre. I did have several sources that said that andre's father was another Charles (1564 or 65) followed by Jules (1544) then Augustin Cesar (1523-1603. Have you ever come across these names? How did you get your information? Thanks again fo this information.
