Notes générales :
Marguerite LePeuvier was a "Filles du roi" or King's Daughter.
Filles du roi were some 770 women who arrived in the colony of New-France, Canada between 1663 and 1673, under the financial sponsoship of King Louis XIV of France. Most were single French women and many were orphans. Their transportation to Canada and settlement in the colony were paid for by the King. Some were given a royal gift of a dowry of 50 livres for their marriage to one of the many unmarried male colonists in Canada. These gifts are reflected in some of the marriage contracts entered into by the filles du roi at the time of their first marriage.
The filles du roi were part of King Louis XIVs program to promote the settlement of his colony in Canada. Some 737 of these women married and the resultant population explosion gave rise to the success of the colony. Most of the millions of people of French-Canadian desect today, both in Québec and the rest of Canada and the USA are descendants of one or more of these courageous women of the 17th century.
