Migration of the St Foy family to the New World and Oceana
Migration from France to New France or Quebec as it was now more popularly called, continued from France until it fell in 1759. By 1675, there were 7000 French in Quebec. By the same year the Acadian presence in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island had reached 500. In the treaty of Utrecht, the Acadians were ceded by France to Britain in 1713. In 1755, 10,000 French Acadians refused to take an oath of allegiance to England and were deported. They found refuge in Louisiana. In 1793, the remaining French in these provinces came under British rule. Meanwhile, in Quebec, the French race flourished, founding in Lower Canada, one of the two great solitudes which became Canada. Many of this distinguished family name St Foy were prominent in social, cultural, religious and political affairs in France and New France. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name St Foy were Louis Defoy, who was married in 1696 in Quebec; Charles Defoy was married in 1718 in St-Augustin; Antoine Defoy was married in 1783 in St-Augustin; Etienne Defoy was married in 1787 in the same town..
