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!

 


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 Labbe was a Fille du Roi. Anne was baptized on August 29th, 1627 in Huisseau-sur-Cosson (Notre-Dame) (Loir-et-Cher, France) Her parents were Etienne and Guillemette Guillemin.

Jeanne Labbe was also a  Fille du Roi. Jeanne’s parents were Charles Labbe and Marie-Francoise Bertrand. She was baptized in Paris on March 26th, 1640. Her father was master jeweller.
