Having decided to settle at Ville-Marie (Montreal), Lauson bought 50 rods of land and a house from Urbain Tessier dit Lavigne, in March 1655. On 20 August of the same year there were added to this property, as grants from Maisonneuve, 30 acres “below the Coteau Saint-Louis” and one acre “within the town.” Being henceforth in a position to support a wife and family, Lauson married Marie Archambault, aged 12, daughter of Jacques Archambault and Françoise Toureault, on 27 Nov. 1656, at Ville-Marie. As a good citizen Lauson enlisted in the militia of the Sainte-Famille and held the position of churchwarden of the parish of Montreal from 5 Jan. 1670 to 11 Jan. 1672.       Marie Archambault died on 8 Aug. 1685, leaving 13 children; on 21 Sept. 1687 Lauson himself died.
