Migration of the Delagrout 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 Delagrout 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 Delagrout were Jacques Grouard, who married Marie Têtu in Quebec City in 1689; Jean Grou, who married Jeanne Cousineau in Montreal in 1708; Jean Grou, who married Agathe Hay in St-Laurent in 1726.
