  1.   Réal Rodrigue. Rodrigue Families Association.

    The parents of João Rodrigues were João Rodrigues and Susana da Cruz (in the notarized acts in which he was a party, he named his parents as Jean Rodrigue and Suzanne Lacroix; it was most likely a francization of the names; the restoration of the real names is quite evident in the case of the father [Jean Rodrigue = João Rodrigues], but less in the case of the mother [Suzanne can be translated by Susana, but Lacroix can be either Cruz or da Cruz]; most likely, it is to better identify himself with his new environment that he chose to give his parents and himself French-sounding names).
