The Great Migration



Approximately 110 years after the first landings by Cartier, there were only about 300 people in Quebe c. France gave land incentives for 2,000 migrants during the next decade. Early marriage was desperately encouraged amongst the immigrants. The fur trade attracted migrants, both noble and commoner. 15,000 explorers left Montreal in the late 17th and 18th centuries. By 1675, there were 7000 French in Quebec. Migration to New France (Quebec) continued from France until it fell in 1759. In the year 1675 the Acadian presence in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island had reached 500. In 1755, 10,000 French Acadians refused to take an oath of allegiance to England and were deported to Louisiana. The French founded Lower Canada, thus becoming one of the two great founding nations of Canada. The distinguished family name Boodrow has made significant contributions to the culture, arts, sciences and religion of France and New France. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name Boodrow were Jean Boudreau, the son of Martin Boudreau and of Marie Foucault, of Saint-Porchaire, in Charente-Inférieure, who arrived in New France around 1667. In 1671 he settled in the village of Royal, where he married Marie-Rose Vivien in 1673. He became a widower and later married Élisabeth Pivain in Charlesbourg in 1689. Pierre Boudrot, Michel Boudrot, Amant Boudrot, Joseph Boudrot and his wife, Marie, and Remis Boudreaux all arrived in Maryland in 1763. Étienne Boudreault settled Quebec, where he was a solicitor from 1817 to 1825.
