I'm seeing/reading   "... Louis mignot et de Jeanne cheron les pere et mere de la paroisse de st germain de la seine(?) en brie Euesche(?) de sems(?) en Bourgogne ..."

The bold "s" identifies occurrences of the long or medial "s". I certainly think the first character after "... de la paroisse de st germain de la ..." is a long or medial "s".

Cannot read it as "Cime".

It is written St germain de la Sime , this place does not exist or did not exist . it was misunderstood in Canada and written de la sime . It should be St germain Laxis which was called in those days St Germain de Lacist.

I think Charon was not quite the name of Jean B 's mother , moreover different sites gives Charron, Chaillou, Chazou ...
The parish registers of St Germain de Lacist still exist for the years :1669 (from july to december), 1670, 1671. the registers from 1672 to 1729 are missing (destroyed ,robbed etc...). Then you have the registers from 1729 to 1770.

 This means that you cannot find your ancestors's baptisms, marriages or deaths.
I could try to decipher these registers to find a member of jeanne Ch? 's family, to get a more precise idea of her real name.
I'll let you know .

It is written St germain de la Sime ,

At least you have confrirmed the leading character is the medial "s"

Your input is much appreciated. I've spent many days on this and my conclusion is that when the document was written, the priest misinterpreted 'La -xis' as 'La-Sime'. This is the only document that I have reviewed with this name, so I feel that 'Sime' was an error and that this family married and raised their children in St-Germain-Laxis.
Thanks everyone.

1731. One can still argue that is is written CHAILLON. But it is not written CHARRON

This has been of major interest for me as I descend from two lines of MIGNOTS (who later became Labrie in Canada): Jean Mignot dit Labrie (Marie Sainte Boucher 1689), and Jean Mignot dit Chatillon (Louise Cloutier 1648).
Jean Mignot dit Labrie was the son of Louis Mignot/ Jeanne Charon.
Jean Mignot dit Chatillon was the son of Nicolas Mignot/ Madeleine de Brie. I have often wondered whether they were related, as Chatillon is not far from St Germain Laxis.
Of interest to me is that the two lines intersected in Quebec when Amable Mignot Labrie (descendant of Louis Mignot/ Jeanne Charon) married Marie Marguerite Collin (descendant of Jean Mignot/ Louise Cloutier) 1814, Kamouraska Quebec.
