The names of Robert Edmunds and Reynald Kelley are found among those persons who took the oath of fidelity in 1674 at Pemaquid, so the families were living at the Eastward. That they were captured between the dates given above is shown by the following record in the Quebec parish register: Nov. 5, 1695, baptized by F. Dupré Marie Margueritte aged 17 months or about that, born in New England, daughter of Jean Batiste Edmon and Marie his wife. In the margin is "Angloise" and "June 1694"— the probable date of the birth?

And a few days later, on Nov. 18, 1695, was bap. by me Francois Dupré curé of quebec, Charles Jean, born this day, son of Jean batiste aidmont and marie chelay, his wife. The godfather was the Sr Charles Chartier, citizen merchant and the godmother elisabeth Chast, wife of nicolas pré, locksmith, citizen of quebec, who have signed."

In ten days the child "son of b. aidmont and marie quelay" was buried. In the margin in different handwriting is "Edmund."
