A quote from 'French and French-Canadian Family Reserach' published by SUMMIT PUBL. PO BOX 222 MUNROE FALLS, OHIO 44252 by J. Konrad----'very early in the French colonization of Canada, the authorities became concerned about peopling the colony. The king himself, in 1663 directed the recruitment of young women of good quality for this purpose. They became knwon as 'Les Filles du Roi' or the King's girls. The one thing the girls had in common was poverty, so the king provided a dowry, which included clothing and the cost of their passage. In Canada, when they married, the newly married couples also received money to buy provisions and livestock. In the ten year period from 1663 to 1673, a total of 852 of these King's Daughter are said to have arrived in New France. In the year 1671, it is believed that 700 children were borne by them.' 'The province of origin of these 852, as well as their names and husbands' names, are listed in 'The King's Daughter' by Elmer Costeau. This article appeared in the magazine 'Lost in Canada' from April 1976 to April 1978.'
