Migration of the Lejullien 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 Lejullien 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 Lejullien were François Julien who settled in Quebec in 1769; Louis Julien settled in Quebec in 1829; Jean Julien settled in Quebec in 1816; Nicolas Julien settled in Quebec in 1813.
