It was a young population and very predominantly a male one in NewFrance. Some of the soldiers married the local girls of the colony.For others, there was a need for young girls to emigrate to Canada andbecome wives of these new settlers. The authorities in Franceencouraged emigration of young women to Canada by paying for theirocean transportation; providing them with some articles in a smallchest: one head dress, one taffeta handkerchief, one pair of shoeribbons, one hundred sewing needles, one comb, one spool of thread,one pair of stockings, one pair of gloves, one pair of scissors, twoknives, one thousand pins, one bonnet, four lace braids, and twopounds in silver money; and a dowry of 50 livres from the King if theymarried a soldier. The authorities were careful in their selection,and tried to send to the ports of embarkation, only young honest girlsfrom good families, who were, for the most part, orphans of the poor,that were raised by the state: the reason for why they were called"les fille du Roy." The intendant of New France, Jean Talon, built hostels to house thegirls, who were cared for by the Ursuline nuns until they foundhusbands. The aim was to get the girls married as quickly as possible. Toencourage this, after the arrival of the immigrant ships, bachelors inthe colony were forbidden to go hunting or fishing or engage in thefur trade until all the King's daughters were married. The filles du Roy were courageous, adventurous, daring spirits, whosaw New France as a means of escaping the depressing future that wouldbe their lot in France because of their relative poverty. The majorityof them were from the larger towns of France, and the adaption to theprimative living conditions of the wilderness in the New World, musthave been extremely difficult. Françoise Bourgeois became one of the King's Daughters and began hernew life as the wife of one of the former soldiers of theCarignan-Salières Regiment, Paul Vigneault dit Laverdure.
Ile d'Orléans, Québec (New France)
Paul and Françoise Vigneault first settled in the parish ofSainte-Famille, ile d'Orléans, Québec, on the fief Maheu, sometimesreferred to as "les habitations Maheu." This seigneury was granted byBishop de Laval, on 15 January 1651, to René Maheu and his wifeMarguerite Corriveau. The fief consisted of five rotures (numbers: 66,67, 68, 69 and 70) of three arpents of river frontage by 15 arpentsdeep. It was located almost in the centre of the Island of Orleans,boardered from the south side to the north-east by the riviere Maheu(Saint-Louis River in 1659), by Claude de la Barre, and to the southwest by Jean Leblanc. Paul Vigneault dit Laverdure had leased 3arpents of land on roture number 68, from Barthélémy Verreau, whoacquired it from an exchange made with Noel Rose-dit-Larose. In 1682,Verreau, "by means of exchange," ceded this land to Jean Charest... Paul Vigneault held roture 68 (lots 241 and 242) by lease from 1671to 1681, then moved his family to the parish of Saint-Laurent, on thesouth-west side of the Isle d'Orléans. Paul bought the title deed ofroture number 48, with 2 1/2 arpents of frontage, from VincentGuillots. This sub-fief was ceded by Monsieur de Lauson, on 6 May1653, to the Ursuline nuns. The Ursuline's fief included roture numbers 46b to 49, with 8arpents of river frontage. It was known as "Terre des Ursulines orarriere-fief des Ursulines." In the census of the parish of Saint-Laurent, in 1681, page 86b,Paul Vignault, 40 years old, had 2 arpents "en valeur" (ploughable, orcleared) land, between Pierre Garand and Thomas (Clement) Ruel. On the 1689 map by Villeneuve, page 171, Paul Vigneau owned lotnumbers 57 and 58, with a barn, between Louis Savadier and Jean Cotte. On the 6th of May 1691, Paul Vignaux-dit-Laverdure transferred bymeans of exchange, to Louis Savadier, 2 arpents less 7 feet offrontage, with buildings, land between Louis Savadier and Jean Cotte.
The death of Paul Vigneault and his wife Françoise Bourgeois,occured before 1695, when their son, Maurice, aged 21 years, signed adocument by the notary Louis Chambalon, that obligated him to pay forthe pension of his little sister, Marie, aged 12 years, to theHôpital-General of Québec.
