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

François BELANGER 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.

Marie GUYON (GUION) was the child of Jean GUYON and Mathurine ROBIN


Notre-Dame-de-Quebec, Quebec, Canada


"On 27 July 1636, Francois Belanger was mentioned for the first time in New France... On 12 July of the following year, Francois took himself a wife. His union with the thirteen year old Marie Guyon, daughter of Jean and Mathurine Robin, was blessed by Father Charles Lallemant, acting as the curate of Notre-Dame-des-Anges. The marriage act, drawn up in 1640, tells us that Francois was a mason by trade."
