Migration of the Remillot 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 Remillot 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 Remillot were François Roumihat, who married Anne Gaboury in L'Islet, in New France in 1681; and who died in St-Michel-De-La-Durantaye in 1700. His descendants have used the Rouillard and Remillard forms of the name. Franç.
