We hope you enjoy the story as much as we do.

Informative. Lynne was very interesting. Thanks.
A note: The term “Quebec” was used only for the town and the region. The colony was called Canada. After the Conquest, the English first used the term Lower Canada and then extended the name Québec to what is more or less the province we know today.
Women had one year to marry or else face a return to France. If any unmarried women were sent back, men who were still bachelors (hadn’t snapped up a wife) were fined as a punishment. Marriages had nothing to do with romance.
We all have many filles du roi ancestors.
