This series of Early French Canadian Pioneers  microposts is dedicated to the earliest settlers of Quebec. If you are new to the genealogy of French-speaking Canadians, please be aware that the earliest French settlers can also descend from the Acadian pioneers who originally settled in what are now Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. In addition, please note that any Native related links refer back to other posts citing census, marriage or other documents with indigenous or Metis individuals of that surname, however those individuals do not necessarily descend from these particular French Canadian settlers. All these posts are intended as Finding Aides – a place to find possible clues and start your own research!


Filles du Roi is the name that’s been given to about 700/800 women who emigrated from France to Quebec in the middle of the 17th century. They were called the King’s Daughters because Louis XIV (King of France) had sponsored their trips to the New World. Each Fille received her passage, a hope chest and room and board until her marriage (read further at The Canadian Encyclopedia).

Anne Leclerc was a Fille du Roi. Her parents were Jean Leclerc and Perrette Brunet (later known as Brunel) of Dieppe (Seine-Maritime), France. She was baptized on February 21st, 1637 in St-Remy Parish. [Baptismal Record]  [for Quebec information see above]

Marguerite  Leclerc was also a  Fille du Roi. She was baptized on July 20th, 1629 in St-Symphorien Parish in Tours, Indre-et-Loire, France. Her parents were Pierre Leclerc and Nicole Petit. [Baptismal Record]  [for Quebec information see above]

  2. Guillaume LeClerc and Marie Therese Hunault were both killed by Iroquois. there was a daughter, Marie-Anne Leclerc (1685-1730) on November 21, 1712 in St-Francois. She married Jacques Lebelle (1688-1748) on November 21, 1712. This couple had at least 6 children.
    Jacques married Marie Suzanne Daze in 1730, after Marie-Anne’s death.

    • Michele, I knew that Marie Therese was killed by the Iroquois but I have no record of Guillaume was killed the same way. Certainly wasn’t killed the same time as his wife.
