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).

Marie Martin was a Fille du Roi. Her parents were Jacques Martin and Marie Bonnault (or Lemaistre)  of La Rochelle (Charente-Maritime), France. Her siblings included Catherine and Theodore).  [Marie Martin’s marriage record]  [for Quebec information see above]

  2. Hi Evelyn, I am trying to find information on a Jean Osou who is listed as the husband of Isabelle Martin. They had a daughter, Marie Magdeleine Osou, (Information taken from Church Baptism Entry Three Rivers on November 19th, 1671). I found a death entry for a Jean Osou, Notre Dame, Montreal in the year of 1707. His age was written as either 96 or 86. I also found another entry for Jean Osou, who was baptised on November 18, 1674 and whose parents were listed as Jean Osou and Isabelle. He was marked as Illegitimate.
    Marie Magdeleine Osou is an ancestor of my husband. I know that in the Quebec, Genealogical Dictionary of Canadian Families (Tanguay Collection), 1608-1890 that Isabelle Martin is listed as married to Jean Ozannes.
    I was just wondering if you could help clarify whether the “Jean’s” are the one in same or different families. I have copies of all the church documents if they are needed. Please don’t hesitate to email me.
