Huchet de Kernion was a native of Quimper and the son of Pierre Guillaume Huchet and his wife Thomase Renie Guidon. His bride-to-be was the widow of Antoine Rivart. The couple drew up an agreement concerning the property each would bring to the marriage. There were also provisions for the widow's two children by Rivart. Several prominent colonial officials and citizens were present at the signing of the document, including Governor Bienville, Mayor of New Orleans Noyan, and Attorney General François Fleurian. Also included were copies of two related documents - an inventory of the movables and slaves belonging to the community property of Huchet de Kernion (1736 October 3); and the settlement of the estate of Antoine Rivart and his widow's debt to the Company of the Indies (1736 October 6).
