Thanks to Micheline MacDonald for providing this information.
Did You Know? Quebec - Did you know? An old farmer in a parish [in the province of Quebec] gave a good thrashing to a boy who had innocently killed a small yellow snake which he had seen crawling along the grass in front of his house. The old man said that he would have preferred losing his best horse rather than see that snake killed. It had been living in his cellar for some years past, and he considered it as a good lutin [spirit] which brought him luck and prosperity.

Guillaume THIBAULT was the son of Nicolas THIBAULT and Elisabeth ANTHIAUME


Notre-Dame-de-Quebec, Quebec, Canada

"On Monday, 16 November 1654, Guillaume required the services of the notary Audouart to draw up his marriage contract at Fort St-Louis in Quebec. The distinguished guests were Jean de Lauzon, Governor of New France; Father Francois Lemercier, head of the Jesuits; the Normand priest Lean Lesueur, chaplain of the Hotel-Dieu; Anne Gasnier, widow of Jean Clement, Sieur DuVault; Denis-Joseph Ruette, Sieur d'Auteuil, son-in-law of Anne Gasnier; Jean Bourdon from Rouen, the administrator of the Communaute des Habitants of New France; Seigneur, the Venerable Guillaume Couillard, bourgeois; Louis Couillard, Seigneur for part of the Ile aux Oies; and Martin Grouvel."

"Who was the future bride? Marie-Madeleine Francois or Lefrancois, who had been in the country for a short time, appeared as a worthy 21 year old orphan. Her late father Squire Isaac Francois had been the Captain of a company of light horse cavalry in France, obviously a nobleman. Her mother was named Esther Paigne. Marie-Madeleine was born in Lorraine, about 1633."

"After ten years of widowhood, the banked fires of love flared anew in the heart of Madelein Lefrancois. A brilliant citizen from Batiscan, the widower of Marie Richard since 31 May 1695, the father of seven children, a Normand by origin, Francois Fafard, 60 years old, entered the heart of the widow Thibault... In early spring, on 8 April 1696, Madeleine and Francois were married a second time, at Chateau-Richer... The new Lefrancois-Fafard couple moved to Batiscan..."

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)
