    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.

    She arrived on the St Louise de Dieppe on 25 September 1667.

    Jeanne married André Poudret on 3 Nov 1667 in Québec City, Québec. André (son of Pierre Poudret and Philippe Roquet) was born between 1638 and 1646 in Saint-Géry, Valenciennes, Nord, France; died on 1 Jun 1724; was buried on 2 Jun 1724 in Pointe-aux-Trembles, Québec.
