The Great Migration



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 Crevet 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 Crevet were Jean Crevier, who married Marguerite Hertel in Trois-Rivières in 1663; Jean-Baptiste Crevier, who married Charlotte Chorel in 1682 in New France; Claude Crevier, who married Marie-Jeanne Petit in Trois-Rivières in 1706.
