Before the King's Daughters were the Filles a Marier or marrigable girls.  They came to New France between 1634-1662.  In all there were 262 of them.  Again these were not ladies of ill repute but adventurous pioneer women.  They all have there own stories .  They came to hopefully marry and make a life for themselves.  New France was desperate to keep men here but with the lack of woman to settle with them were leaving to return to France.
