The Great Migration



Migration from France to New France or Quebec as it was now more popularly called, continued from France until it fell in 1759. By 1675, there were 7000 French in Quebe c. By the same year the Acadian presence in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island had reached 500. In the treaty of Utrecht, the Acadians were ceded by France to Britain in 1713. In 1755, 10,000 French Acadians refused to take an oath of allegiance to England and were deported. They found refuge in Louisiana. In 1793, the remaining French in these provinces came under British rule. Meanwhile, in Quebec, the French race flourished, founding in Lower Canada, one of the two great solitudes which became Canada. Many of this distinguished family name Dicaire were prominent in social, cultural, religious and political affairs in France and New France. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name Dicaire were 80 individuals of the lineage who arrived from France onto Canadian shores between 1600 and 1900. Most settlers arrived in the nineteenth century, but a few immigrated earlier, such as the widow Decary, who lived in Isle-de-Montreal in 1781. Toussaint Decarie was a blacksmith in St-Philomene in 1871.
