I have recently discovered that I am descended from this lady who was born in PARIS, probably in the 1650s. She came to CANADA as a FILLE du ROI, sent by LOUIS XIV to marry a settler & thus help populate "NEW FRANCE". I know these girls were orphans, or widows, but I wonder is there any way to find out more about her & her family? She married my
ancestor, ANTOINE CAILLE in LAPRAIRIE,QUEBEC, CANADA about 1674.

Are you talking about ANNE AUBRY? She married Antoine Caille dit Brulefer et Biscornet at LaPrairie. Anne was born about 1654 in Paris; the names of her parents are not known. She came to Canada in 1671 at about age 17 and was a witness to the marriage contract of fellow Fille du Roi Jeanne Quelve, drawn up 19 April 1672 by Notary Duquet.

No marriage contract has been found, it is known that Anne could not sign her name.

Antoine Caile was born about 1651 in La rochelle. His nickname Brulefer ("burn iron") most likely comes from the fact that he was a blacksmith. He is listed in the 1667 census as a servant at the farm of the seigneurie of Beauport.

Antoine and Anne settled at Laprairie and had seven children. Anne was baptized 5 July 1675 at Laprairie, followed by Jean-Baptiste (11 August 1677), Jacques (30 April 1679), and Pierre (22 December 1680). Sadly, Jean-Baptiste died before the 1681 census. Son Antoine was baptized 25 March 1683, followed by Marguerite (24 May 1688) and Jeanne (29 December 1690).

Antoine Caille dit Brulefer et Biscornet died at Laprairie between 7 February 1707 and 24 October 1708. anne Aubry died after 10 May 1723.

I, too, descend from Marie Aubry and Antoine Caille. I am interested in exchanging information.
