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

Jean JUCHEREAU 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.

Jean was a Marchand, seigneur, coureur de bois with the Compagnie des Cent-Associés.
A marchand, or merchant, was a trader who sold a specific type of merchandise or product. Merchants handled most of the supply and distribution of products that came from Europe.

JUCHEREAU DE LA FERTÉ, JEAN, merchant, member of the Conseil Souverain; b. c. 1620 perhaps at La Lande-sur-Eure (France), son of Jean Juchereau de Maur and of Marie Langlois; d. 16 Nov. 1685 at Quebec.

Juchereau de La Ferté was the eldest son of the family; he arrived in Canada with his parents in 1634 and married Marie Giffard on 21 Nov. 1645 at Quebec. He played a distinguished part in the trade, magistrature, and society of the new-born colony. On 7 Sept. 1661 he received a grant of land on the Île d’Orléans from Charles de Lauson. On 18 Sept. 1663 he was appointed a member of the newly instituted Conseil Souverain. The following year, with the majority of the members of the council, he opposed the appointment of a syndic for the settlers. Consequently on 19 Sept. 1664 Governor Saffray de Mézy relieved him of his duties, together with three other members of that body.
