The King’s Daughters and the Carignan Soldiers

FCHSC member Dorothy des Lauriers has traced her Canadian ancestry to eleven King's Daughters (Filles du Roi) and six soldiers of the Carignan-Salières regiment. This is actually a rather small number of representatives from these groups, but Dorothy's ancestry is only 1/4 French-Canadian. Below is the direct lineage between Dorothy and her seventh great-grandparents, Marguerite Viard and Mathurin Bénard dit Lajeunesse. Marguerite was a Fille du Roi and Mathurin was a soldier in the Carignan-Salières Regiment. Marguerite married three times and by 31 Dec 1729 her descendants numbered 133.
