If I am not mistaken, Les Filles du Roi came in different waves of immigration. In each wave they came from different parts of society. Many came from fine families who put down ample dowries for their daughters' new lives, including the one I descend from.I don't know where that prostitute rumour started...
Thank you for the information regarding New France being a penal colony-even if for a short few years. In all the historical research I have done, I had never come across this nugget of information.Certainly something they did not wish to advertise,unlike Australia.
