Generation: 1

  1. 1.  Françoise Duval was born between 1647 and 1653 in Saint-Nicolas-des-Champs, Paris, France (daughter of Pierre Duval and Jacquette Durand); died before 27 Oct 1725; was buried on 27 Oct 1725 in Québec City, Québec.

    Notes:

    She was a fille du rois, a "daughter of the king." By 1660 or so it had become apparent that the fledgling North American colony of New France was badly short of marriageable women. To ameliorate this, between 1663 and 1673 the French government recruited respectable young women of limited prospects and, after vetting them for suitability, provided each of them with a small dowry, a chest of clothes, and one-way passage to Quebec. The approximately 800 women who made this journey became known as the "filles du roi", the "daughters of the King." Millions of modern French-Canadians can trace their descent from them, quite often from several.

    Françoise married Pierre Courraud on 16 Nov 1671 in Québec City, Québec. Pierre (son of Pierre Courraud and Jeanne Papot) was born about 1630 in Saint-Germain, Poitiers, Vienne, Poitou-Charentes, France; died on 4 May 1680; was buried on 5 May 1680 in Beauport, Québec.
