Rene Maheust and Jeanne Garnier

"A happy couple lived on the Beaupre Coast at what is now L'Ange-Gardien. They were Rene Maheu and Jeanne Garnier, married at Quebec on 30 July 1657. Rene, baptized on 2 July 1632 at St-Langis-le-Mortagne, was the son of Zacharie Maheu dit Point-du-Jour and Leonarde Foucquest. The bride Jeanne Garner, daughter of Sebastien and of Marie Roux, was born at Saint-Denis, Ile d'Oleron, arrondissement of Rocherfort, diocese of La Rochelle, in Sainteonge, today la Charente-Maritime. This twenty-one-year old girl had contracted for Canada on 10 April 1657. She was a strong and courageous woman. Rene and Jeanne had their only son Rene baptized at Quebec on 10 June 1658, by the Sulpicien Gabriel de Queylus. Alas! Jeanne Garnier's husband died before the spring of 1659."

"Pierre Gendreau dit LaPoussiere, the godfather of Pierre Delamarre, was willing to protect his godson and his mother. On 12 January 1663, notary Audouart drew up a third marriage contract for Jeanne Garnier. The thirty-three year old Pierre Gendreau, accepted Jeanne as his wife and lawful spouse, at Chateau-Richer on 24 January... There were ten years of happiness which made six flowers of life bloom, six Canadian branches of the Gendreau family. But the youngest, Genevieve Gendreau, was still unborn when her father left Jeanne Garnier before 12 October 1673."

"After the loss of her third husband, Jeanne Garnier remained bewildered. She lived in mourning for eight years with her nine children from three marriages. They say that time heals all wounds and helps one to forget. Jacques Barbeau, a 58 year old bachelor shoemaker, proposed marriage to her on 22 October 1679. The contract drawn up by notary Auber was accepted, but it was only on 9 February 1681 that Jeanne and Jacques were joined in bonds of matrimony, at the church of L'Ange-Gardien. This fourth husband died on 18 November 1687."

Fille a Marier

"When the Company of 100 Associates began their settlement scheme, their plan of recruiting only families proved to be too costly, so instead they signed on single men; tradesman and labourers; who would be indentured for three years. However, this meant that more than 80% of the colonists were men, so even if they decided to stay at the end of their term, there was little hope of them starting a family, unless they chose a Canadian girl. But, since her family would never allow her, or her children, to leave their village; the company directors needed to avoid this from happening.

So instead, they began recruiting "marriagable young girls", who would first sign a contract in France and then be given passage and a small dowry to become the wife of a Quebec settler. You might wonder why these young girls (many under 16), would risk the dangers and hardships, which by now most of France were well aware of; but believe it or not; for many it was the best option.

At the time, marriages were arranged, so if the girl's family did not have the means to provide a sutable dowry, her only option was to become a nun, if she was Catholic; or marry beneath her station. In the case of the young Filles a Marier, though a marriage contract must be signed before departure, she had every right to refuse the union, once she met her husband-to-be. As a matter of fact, many of them did just that, and were provided safe passage home." (http://www.thinal.co.cc/weallcamefromsomewhere/Kebec/filles_marier.html)

"Jeanne Garnier must not have believed in the charlatans, either, but when she left her native Saintonge in 1657, she was undoubtedly far from suspecting what fate had in store for her in the new colony her entire life was marked with cruel trials and overwhelming sorrows."
