Did You Know? Québec Généalogie - The Seigneurial System (1627 - 1854)
The seigneurial system was a form of land settlement modeled on the French feudal system. It began in New France in 1627 with the formation of the Compagnie des Cent-Associés (or Company of 100 Associates), which was initially responsible for handing out land grants and seigneurial rights. The land was divided into five by 15 kilometer plots, usually along major rivers like the St. Lawrence. They were then further subdivided into narrow, but long lots for settlement. These lots were usually long enough to be suitable for faming, and they provided everyone who lived on them with equal access to neighbouring farms and the river. There were three main groups of people who lived off the land in this system: Seigneurs, Habitants and Engagés

Quentin MORAL was a seigneur.
Seigneurs were the most important colonists, as they were usually in the military or aristocracy prior to being a settler. These seigneurs then were charged with the task of subdividing large parcels of land into five by 15 kilometer concessions, then renting this land to a habitant. Under regulations set up by the French government in France, the seigneur could also set up a court of law, set up a mill on his land and organize a commune.

Exploring the Ancestry of Quentin MORAL: Events, Pictures, and Documents

MORAL, Quentin... who, during his lifetime, was a judge and a civil and criminal lieutenant for the king in Trois-Rivières. His exact arrival date in Canada is unknown but it could have been around 1645. He was born in a village called St. Quentin in Lorraine, France about 1620. In approximately 1652, he married the widow of Jacques Hertel. The woman was Marie Marguerie, sister of the well-respected interpreter and fur trader, François Marguerie. Marie Marguerie inherited land on the island called l'Île de la Trinité from her brother, François when he died in 1648. After the Moral-Marguerie marriage, the island was renamed l'Île Saint-Quentin. Besides land, Marie Marguerie brought three young children to the marriage, aged 10 to 3.

On 17 November 1663, Quentin Moral was appointed royal notary but does not seem to have taken up the office, which was entrusted a year later to Séverin Ameau.
