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).

Marie Paquet was a Fille du Roi. Marie’s parents were Pierre Pasquier (Advisor to the King and lord of Francelieu) and Marie De Portas. She was baptized on February 24th, 1638 and died or was buried in Quebec City on June 26th, 1685.

  3. Hi, my name is Ernest Larocque. I am looking for information on my grandmother Marie Ann Aglae Larocque (born Paquette). She was born 1891 in St-Venent-de-Paquette, East Hereford, Quebec. She married my grandfather Felix Albert George Larocque September 28, 1910 in Riviere Qui Barre, Alberta and died in New West Minster B.C.May 18, 1978. Both my parent have past away and our family doesn’t really know much about the Paquettes so I really am grasping to find information about the Paquette family.
    I don’t have access to records and wondered if you would have any way to determine who Marie Ann Aglae’s parents were.
    Any help you can provide would be appreciated.
