This series of  Early French Canadian Pioneer 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 Talbot was a Fille du Roi. She was born on July 31st, 1651 and baptized on August 31st of the same year. Her parents were Isaac (also know as Eustache)  Talbot and Marie Delalande (m. February 19th, 1645). Anne and her parents were from Rouen, France (parish of St. Maclou).  [Anne’s baptismal record]

  2. Hello Robert,
    If you are referring to the Gareaus in the post itself then the answer is no. If you need information about parents in France you can tell me which you are interested in and I’ll add the information.
    If you are referring to the Gareaus in the links in the section “First Nations Marriage Records – Gareau Surname”, then I don’t know because I haven’t constructed those family trees.
    I hope that is helpful and if not please leave any further question that you have.
    Evelyn
