Good morning Bertrand,
Even with Bridget's contribution to Karin's maternal lineage, thus far,
in our sample group, only one oldest granny was a "Fille du Roi", and
she is Gisèle's ancestor Elisabeth CAMUS.
But the answers are still flowing in, and with everyone helping to fill
in the gaps of others, we might have quite a different picture by the
time I post the next recap at noon.

Also, I would like to know how many were King's Daughters. Here is mine: Françoise Moisan, from La Rochelle, daughter of Abel and Marie Simotte, who married Antoine Brunet in 1663 in Montreal. She was from the first groupe of the Fille du Roi.
