GUYON DU BUISSON, JEAN (senior), master mason, pioneer at Beauport; baptized 18 Sept. 1592 at Tourouvre (Orne, France), son of Jacques and Marie Guyon; m. 2 June 1615 Mathurine Robin; d. 30 May 1663.

On 14 March 1634, at Mortagne, Guyon and his fellow-countryman Cloutier signed an undertaking with Robert Giffard. Guyon settled at Beauport that year with his wife and most of their children, of whom there were at least eight. When he received from Giffard an arriere-fief near the Rivière du Buisson, he assumed that nobiliary surname. Several of his descendants now bear the name Dion.
