The Great Migration



Immigration to New France was slow; therefore, early marriage was desperately encouraged amongst the immigrants. The fur trade attracted migrants, both noble and commoner. 15,000 explorers left Montreal in the late 17th and 18th centuries. 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 1755, 10,000 French Acadians refused to take an oath of allegiance to England and were deported to Louisiana. The French founded Lower Canada, thus becoming one of the two great founding nations of Canada. The distinguished family name Perriere has made significant contributions to the culture, arts, sciences and religion of France and New France. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name Perriere were Laurent Perrier who arrived in Quebec in 1690 from Guyenne; Peter Perrier arrived in America in 1774; Pierre Perrier arrived in Louisiana in 1752; George Perrier arrived in Philadelphia in 1805. In Newfoundland Dominic and Simon Perrier were fishermen at Sandy Point in George's Bay in 1871.
