In 1643, 109 years after the first landings by Cartier, there were only about 300 people in Quebe c. Migration was slow. The fur trade attracted migrants, both noble and commoner. 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 Budreau 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 Budreau 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.
