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 Lefleur 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 Lefleur were Jean Fleurant, who arrived in Quebec in 1656; M. La Fleur, who was living in Fort Louis de la Mobile in Louisiana, in the year 1711; M. La Fleur, a wagon maker, who was living in New Orleans in 1725.
