Marie-Thérèse Viel

Wikipedia: The King's Daughters (French: filles du roi; filles du roy) is a term used to refer to the approximately 800 young French women who immigrated to New France between 1663 and 1673 as part of a program sponsored by Louis XIV. The program was designed to boost Canada's population both by encouraging male immigrants to settle there, and by promoting marriage, family formation and the birth of children. While women and girls certainly emigrated to New France both before and after this time period, they were not considered to be filles du roi, as the term refers to women and girls who were actively recruited by the government and whose travel to the colony was paid for by the king. They were also occasionally known as the King's Wards, where "wards" meant those under the guardianship of another.

Story (source:  Marie-Thérèse Viel arrived in New France in 1671.  She returned to France in 1676 to claim her inheritance, but returned to New France, pregnant by the explorer, Médard Chouart, Sieur DesGroseilliers, husband of Marguerite Hayet.  Their daughter, Jeanne-Élisabeth, was baptized 14 January 1677 in Québec.  DesGroseilliers admitted to the relationship, but denied being the father of the baby.  The Prévote Court fined him for having damaged Marie-Thérèse Viel's reputation, but ordered her husband to raise the child.  In August 1699, Marie-Thérèse Boyer was talking to Madeleine Bailly and accused her of being a flirt.  Madeleine tore off Marie-Thérèse's hat, and was ordered by a tribunal to replace the hat.  Both women were warned not to speak ill of the other.  Marie-Thérèse Viel returned to France after Étienne Boyer's death on 3 October 1700; she died in France after 28 July 1710 [Gagné, pp. 556-557; Jetté, p. 254].
