Description

Who are these young women, mostly poor and orphans who, between 1663 and 1673, left France and braved the perils of the sea to come and make a living in distant New France? Among them, 71 dared to go up the river to Ville-Marie to settle on this island full of dangers, to get married there and raise their family. What has been their life in this country?   Here are Les Filles du Roy pioneers of Montreal and their families. Immigrants rooted in New France, they helped to populate and develop French America. This is their story.
