Immigrant Ancestors for Cordélie Olivier

As I wrote previously, my great-grandmother Delia Rosanna Bacon was almost 100% French.

I have finally finished tracing every branch of her family tree back to the original immigrant ancestors (with one possible exception).  For the immigrant ancestors of her father you can visit this link: Immigrant Ancestors for Jean Gregoire Bacon.

These are the immigrant ancestors for her mother, Cordélie Olivier (1850-1918).  Cordélie died in the Spanish Flu Epidemic of 1918 just four days after her daughter Delia did.

You will note in the following list that there is one ancestor who is not traced.  Marguérite Dusson (1656-1731) has no documentation as to her parentage, marriage [she was married in 1671 at a church whose records start in 1675], nor where she was born.  It’s very likely she was born in France, but it’s possible it was her parents who were born there.  In either case… she’s French.

Many of the immigrant ancestors of Delia were the so-called “Filles du Roi“, Daughters of the King.  They were women of modest means who were enticed from France with a financial incentive and dowry to come to Canada and marry the male settlers of “Nouvelle France”, what we call Québec.

“The program was designed to boost Canada’s population both by encouraging male immigrants to settle there, and by promoting marriage, family formation and the birth of children.”

This is why you’ll see so many women from Paris, Normandie, and other Western parts of France among my French immigrant ancestors.

About cthomas1967

Seeking to bring my ancestors out of the shadows of history and into the light. I have always been interested in history, and at a few different times I tried to do a family tree, but wasn't able to do it with the technology that was available then. On a business trip I visited the World War I Museum in Kansas City, MO and it was a very impressive establishment. While I was there I remember thinking, "Didn't my great-grandfather father fight in World War I? And wasn't his brother killed alongside him in some famous battle? I wonder if I can find out where he died." That's what started it all. View all posts by cthomas1967

    Hello there 🙂
    I am an ancestor (ofcourse very far) of the Pierre Papin (1629-1715) & Pierre Chaperon (1645-1728) family. I just wanted to let you know that Pierre Papin was part of ‘La Grande Recrue” (1653) in which part a ship brought 100 settlers to help, as well as Marguerite Bourgeoys, who was New France’s first teacher. He is on the list of the commemoration in Montreal. It’s very easy to google this ship/event, as it was very important for colonization 🙂

      Thanks Sophie. That was a very interesting event to read about! It was a touch-and-go time back in the early days of Québec. Les Filles de Roi, and all that. Basically a population arms race with Britain.
