Did You Know?Quebec - Did you know? Habitants spent the wintertime cleaning and repairing tools and tending the animals. In spring they planted crops, took animals to pasture, and fixed fences. They ploughed the land with a team of oxen, then seeded it. They also cultivated a vegetable garden. In summer the entire family worked in the fields from sunrise until sunset. In late summer, they harvested grain crops and took them to the seigneur’s mill for grinding. In the autumn, they put up preserves, chopped and stacked firewood, brought in animals, butchered and salted the meat, which they put into barrels, and prepared the soil for next season’s crop.

NOTE: PRDH has no record of the marriage or a marriage contract, however it has many records of this couple due to the baptisms of their many children, the first one being in 1669 in Montreal.

"On Saturday, 14 September 1669, the pastor at Ville-Marie, Gilles Perot, drew up the baptismal act of Jean-Baptiste Lamoureux, son of Louis, 'habitant of Monsieur Le Moyne,' and of Francoise Boivin. The priest from Saint-Sulpice did not suspect that his document served as both a baptismal act and a marriage certificate. Louise Lamoureux had been married to Francoise Boivin since 1668. Neither parish registry, nor notary's notes attest to this fact. We only learn at her death that Francoise Boivin was a Normande by birth."

Fille du Roi
Boivin, Françoise, m. Lamoureux, Louis, 1668

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.
