By 1675, there were 7000 French in Quebec. By the same year the French Acadian presence in the Maritimes had reached 500. The French founded Lower Canada, thus becoming one of the two great founding nations of Canada. The family name Bodri has made many distinguished contributions in France and New France to the world of science, culture, religion, and education. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name Bodri were Pindence Beaudry who settled in San Francisco in 1850; Pierre Baudry who settled in Virginia in 1700; Louis Baudry, son of Toussaint and Françoise Archambault, who married Catherine Picard in 1720 and married again Marguerite Lacombe, daughter of Jean and Marie Millet in 1728.
