Some of the first settlers of this family name or some of its variants were: Pierre Duquet, a royal notary, who married Anne Lamarre in Quebec in 1675; and Daniel Duchais, who settled, with his wife and his eight children, in Pennsylvania in 1683. Pierre Duquet de la Chesnaye (1643-1687) was an explorer, a property owner, a lord and a judge in Quebec. The son of Denis Duquet and Catherine Gauthier, he married Anne Lamarre, originally from Saint-Sulpice in Paris, in 1666. He was one of the first students of the Jesuit College of Quebec and then went on to become deputy Attorney General, from 1675 to 1681.
