    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.

    Marguerite married Joseph Élie Gauthier on 24 Oct 1663 in Château-Richer, Montmorency, Québec. Joseph (son of Samuel Gauthier and Hilaire Gourlartier) was born before 11 Oct 1643; died on 9 Dec 1700; was buried on 10 Dec 1700 in Sainte-Famille, Île-d'Orléans, Québec.
