Did You Know?Did you know...A common belief in old Quebec was that lutins [spirits] had the power to bring woe upon the people. If a lutin becomes offended, his master might discover his boots filled with peas or with pebbles. His pantaloons might be sewed up at the knee. He might find salt in his porridge, and pepper in his tea, and the meat in the soup kettle will be turned into pieces of stone. If he goes cutting hay or grain, he cannot get his scythe or his sickle to cut properly; in winter time the water will freeze in his well, and his wife never can cook a good tourtiere - meat pie - without burning the crust into a crisp.

Filles du Roi Filles du Roi1663-1673 Filles du Roi

"The filles du roi, or King's Daughters, were some 770 women who arrived in the colony of New France (Canada) between 1663 and 1673, under the financial sponsorship of King Louis XIV of France. Most were single French women and many were orphans. Their transportation to Canada and settlement in the colony were paid for by the King. Some were given a royal gift of a dowry of 50 livres for their marriage to one of the many unmarried male colonists in Canada. These gifts are reflected in some of the marriage contracts entered into by the filles du roi at the time of their first marriages.

The filles du roi were part of King Louis XIV's program to promote the settlement of his colony in Canada. Some 737 of these women married and the resultant population explosion gave rise to the success of the colony. Most of the millions of people of French Canadian descent today, both in Quebec and the rest of Canada and the USA (and beyond!), are descendants of one or more of these courageous women of the 17th century. "

Family Group Record
Drouin Collection records for Sainte-Famille begin in 1666.
According to PRDH, a marriage contract was signed in 1665 in an undetermined place in Quebec, Canada between Joseph Ozanie Nadeau and Marguerite Abraham. PRDH also indicates records of baptisms of their children, the first one in 1667 in Sainte-Famille.

"On Friday, 6 November 1665, Joseph-Ozanie Nadeau dit Lavigne, was at Quebec, in the house of the notary Duquet. Several witnesses had been summoned to mark the occasion. In civil law, the marriage contract always took on great importance. Even important people did not hesitate to travel to support their more common friends... Who was the future wife of Joseph-Ozanie? She was none other than Marguerite Abraham, a daughter of the king, born at Saint-Eustache de Paris, about 20 years old, daughter or Guillaume Abraham and of Denise Fleury... The day of the nuptial blessing was not recorded in the registry. We can assume that it was given by Father Thomas Morel, perhaps in the parish of Sainte-Famille. The sur name of Abraham implies that Marguerite was of Jewish origin."

marriage Marguerite Abraham married Guillaume Chartier -- Date: 31 January 1678 Place:  Sainte-Famille, L'Île-d'Orléans, Québec, Canada

Family Group Record
"On 26 January 1678, at the residence of the widow, the notary Pierre Duquet had come on snowshoes to settle the terms of the marriage contract. The Breton Guillaume Chartier, in New France since 1674, so of Olivier and of Marie Cornet, about 29 years old, originally from Sainte-Marie de La Haie-Fouassiere, canton of Vertou, arrondissement of Nantes in Brittany, committed himself to marry Marguerite Abraham... At the church of Sainte-Famille on the island on the following Monday, 21 January, the pastor Lamy blessed this union in the presence of the witnesses Noel Forestier, Michel Enaud, Jean Jouanne and Isaac Pasquier dit Lavallee... This marriage had no descendants and seemed to be strained."

Marguerite Abraham is my 8th gr grandmother! I have been trying to find descendants of my grandmother's siblings for about 15 years. Her family is from Quebec (Fournier & Tardif) and I am on several web pages with links, Today I saw a link concerning Tardif and Nadeau. Nadeau rang a bell and when I started to research it, it led directly back to Marguerite and her first husband Joseph Ossany Nadeau and their son Denis. Denis' son was Alexis and Alexis' daughter was Catherine, married to Etienne Tardif. Their son was Joseph, the first of 3 in line. Last Joseph was married to Marie Charette, and their daughter was Angeline. One of the few pieces of info I have ever paid for was Angeline's obit, in 1930. Angeline was married to Narcisse Fournier and their daughter was Annie Fournier, my namesake! Annie died shortly after my mom was born and the family had nothing to do with Grandma's family after that. So no one ever knew the Fournier/ Tardif cousins, and the name is just so popular in the SE Massachusetts area.
Thank you so much for such a great site with so much info. Now we are more than just poor farmers, we are descended from a Fille du Roi!
And my dad's family is right from Ireland! Again poor farmers! But at least we have someone who is listed in a list on the internet!
