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 Langlois was a Fille du Roi. Anne’s parents were Philippe Langlois and Marie Binet of Meudon (Hauts-de-Seine), France. Anne was born on April 14th, 1652 and baptized two days later in St-Martin Parish. Her father was a mason. After her father’s death her mother married Jacques Doucet. [Parents’ marriage record]  [for Quebec information see above]

Jacqueline Langlois was also a Fille du Roi. Jacqueline was baptized on August 9th, 1630 in Limitz-Villez in St. Sulpice parish. Her parents were Claude Langlois and Jacqueline Gautier. She died or was buried in Montreal, Quebec on October 19th, 1709.  [Baptismal record]  [for Quebec information see above]
