Did You Know? 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

Louis LAMOUREUX was a habitant.
Habitants were usually farmers or labourers who were initially brought over from France to live on this land. They had to pay rent and taxes to the seigneur, though they co-owned the land with the seigneur, and even had to work entirely for the benefit of the seigneur a few days each year.

(CANADA) - PRDH - Universite de Montreal

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."
