The Great Migration



In 1643, 109 years after the first landings by Cartier, there were only about 300 people in Quebec. 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 Calvein 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 Calvein were C. Calvin, aged 30; who settled in New Orleans in 1821; Francis Calvin settled in Virginia in 1654; James Calvin settled in Georgia in 1734; James Calvin settled in Philadelphia in 1848.
