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 those 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 le Seigneur was a Fille du Roi. She was baptized on March 1st, 1649 in St-Maclou parish in Rouen, France. Her parents were Guillaume  Le Seigneur and Madeleine Sauve. Anne died or was buried on July 4th, 1733 in Chambly.

Marie le Seigneur was a Fille du Roi. She was born about 1652 in Paris, France. Her parents were Jean Le Seigneur and Jeanne Godailler. She died  in Charlesbourg, Quebec before April 9th, 1692.
