Re: Filles du roi - Marie Selle m. Nicolas Guillemet

Hi! In his book "The Filles du Roi 1663-1673", Peter Gagne notes that Marie Sel was born about 1647 in the parish of Sainte-Trinite in Bois-Guillaume (archdiocese of Rouen), Normandy. She was the daughter of Guillaume Sel and Marguerite Dormesnil, who were married July 12, 1639 at Sainte-Trinite. After her father's death, Marie left for Canada in 1667 at the age of 20. Marie had a dowry of 200 livres. As you probably know, Marie married Nicolas Guillemet on October 17, 1667 at Quebec City. I don't have information at this time regarding the ship she sailed on or an exact date of arrival.

Good luck in your research. Let us know if you find any further info concerning Marie's arrival in New France.
