  • Notes 
    • In 1670 her aunt Marguerite Bourgeoys, having founded the Congregation of Notre Dame of Montreal as an uncloistered religious order for women, found herself in conflict with François de Laval, the Apostolic Vicar of New France, who was attempting to impose enclosure on her order. Marguerite therefore traveled back to France to seek letters patent for her order from King Louis XIV, a task she completed by May 1671. Returning to Montreal, she brought three of her nieces, all daughters of her sister Marie: Marguerite, Catherine, and Louise Soumilard. Margaret and Catherine later became sisters of the Congregation, while Louise married, first, François Fortin (d. 1690), then Jean Fleuricour.
