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. The posts are intended as Finding Aides – a place to find possible clues and start your own research!

  1. There is a Francoise Loizeau in my line. She was a fille du roi who arrived in 1669 and married Mathurin Gregoire (Carignan-Salieres) according to notary and passenger documents. This pair is listed in Tanguay as a later marriage and wrong descendence though. I’d say it was an error.
    PRDH has her as the daughter of Nicolas Loizeau and Francoise Fregu from Soissons, France.
