Migration of the Defaies family to the New World and Oceana
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 Defaies 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 Defaies were C. Fay, aged 31; settled in New York in 1823; Eugène Fay settled in Philadelphia in 1876; Gabriel Fay settled in Philadelphia in 1865; John Fay settled in Philadelphia in 1838.
