The Great Migration



France was active as a cultural leader in the early 16th century. One particular area in which they lead was the exploration of the New World. The explorers, like Jacques Cartier in 1534, led the way to North America. Champlain, in 1608, made the first of twenty voyages to France to attract settlers and brought the first migrant in 1617. By 1675, there were 7000 French in Quebec, and 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 Ocoin 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 Ocoin were Jean-Baptiste Aucoin married Marie-Anne Saulnier in Québec in 1784; Alexis Aucoin married Marie-Joseph Babin in Québec in 1784; Alexis Aucoin, widower of Marie-Josephe Bain, married Thècle Leureau, daughter of Simon and Marie-Marguérite Loignon, in 1763 in Québec..
