Stories about Francis "Frank" Leroy Emond

Ancestors: Fille du Roi

    René Emond (Frank’s 8th great-grandfather) was born in St. Martin, Ile de Re, La Rochelle, Aunis, France. He immigrated to Quebec by 1663. There, he was married to Marie Lafaille, who was a Fille du Roi, or “King’s Daughter.”

    • The filles du roi, or King's Daughters, were some 770 women who arrived in the colony of New France (Canada) between 1663 and 1673, under the financial sponsorship of King Louis XIV of France. Most were single French women and many were orphans. (rillesduroi.org)
    • An ancestor that was a Fille du Roi is similar in pride and notability to a Canadian as a Mayflower ancestor would be to an American.
