About Marie Fayet, Fille du Roi

Marie Fayette était "fille du Roy".

"Typical of these annulments is one taken from J. and V. Durand’s Jean Durand et sa Posterité, as quoted in Reisinger and Courteau’s The King’s Daughters: Jean DURAND signed a contract as a recruit for New France 3 March 1657. By 1660, DURAND had completed his three years of service and obtained a land concession at Cap Rouge. On 3 October 1661, before witnesses which included Squire Pierre BOUCHER, Sieur de Grosbois and Governor of Trois-Rivieres, he contracted to marry Marie FAYETTE, a File du Roi who had arrived that year. DURAND returned to Cap Rouge and Mile. FAYETTE remained in Trois-Rivieres with the nuns until DURAND would return for the church ceremony. However, on 12 January 1662, Mlle. FAYETTE appeared before a civil notary and had the first agreement annulled. She then contracted to marry Charles POULIOT but had that agreement annulled as well. Finally, on 26 July 1662, she married Nicolas HUOT. What happened to Jean DURAND? Did he die of a broken heart? Not likely! On23 September Ibb2 in Quebec, he contracted to wed an orphan Huron girl who had been raised in the Ursuline convent at Québec since 1654. She was probably 14 when they married and while we do not know if they lived happily ever after, we do know that their descendants in Canada and the United States now number in the tens of thousands.
