Anne Gasnier

1611 - 1698

After the death of her husband in France, Anne Gasnier embarked for the Nouvelle France in 1649. For years, she took care of the poorest, even assuring them a decent burial. In the 1660s, Mrs. Gasnier became the woman behind the Daughters of the King project, young women to whom the crown paid dowry and travel if they agreed to found a family in New France. Anne Gasnier contributed to the arrival of hundreds of young women in Quebec and thus to the demographic expansion of the colony.
