About Catherine Guichelin / Guisselin

The idea that the filles du roi were prostitutes has been an insidious rumor ever since the inception of the program in the 17th century. However, out of nearly 800 filles du roi, only one, Catherine Guichelin, was charged with prostitution while living in Canada, abandoned by her husband. She appeared before the Sovereign Council of New France under the charge of carrying out "a scandalous life and prostitution" on 19 August 1675. Her two children were 'adopted' by friends, and she was banished from Quebec City. She was reported to have turned to prostitution after her husband, Nicholas Buteau, abandoned the family and returned to France. She later gave birth to many children out of wedlock. Guichelin had at least two marriage contracts cancelled. She also wed twice more after returning to Sorel, Quebec, then Montreal, Quebec.'s_Daughters#Rumours_and_legends
