Generation: 1

  1. 1.  Madeleine Têtu was born between 1628 and 1641 in Saint-Sauveur, Rouen, Seine-Maritime, Normandy, France (daughter of Aimé Têtu and Élizabeth Delacour); died on 26 Mar 1703 in Beauport, Québec; was buried on 27 Mar 1703 in Beauport, 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.

    In 1676, she was godmother to Madeleine Boismé, who would grow up to become her daughter-in-law.

    Madeleine married Jean Joubert on 4 Nov 1669 in Québec City, Québec. Jean (son of François Joubert and Jeanne Maillet) was born before 18 Mar 1642; died after 1713. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
