Marriageable Young Girls
The Hubou Migration
There were four members of the Hubou family to migrate to the Quebec Colony; all related as siblings or cousins and originating from the Parish of St André du Mesnil Durand, in Lisieux, Normandy, France.  They also had ties to the Heberts and the Jesuit Priest and Martyr, Rene Goupil.

Guillaume Hubou was born about 1604 and died on May 13, 1653 at Ville De Quebec.  He was the son of Jean Hubou and Jeanne Goupil, and married
Marie Rollet on May 16, 1629; the widow of Louis Hebert.  His sister Barbe, born about 1620; arrived in the Quebec Colony as a Filles A Marier, contracted to marry Jean Milloir.  The wedding took place on November 28, 1642; but Barbe died on October 31, 1651, without having children.

The next to arrive was Guillaume's cousin; Mathieu Hubou, who was contracted to marry
Filles A Marier Suzanne (Betfer) Bedford.  His sister Francoise would join him under the same scheme, contracted to Michel Desourcy.  He was born in 1625 at Sceaux, Antony, Paris, Ile De France, France, and the wedding took place on October 17, 1662 at Ville De Quebec.  They had a daughter, Marie-Madeleine, who was born on September 05, 1663 and died on July 16, 1711.  She married Andre Mufait and the couple had seven children.
Suzanne Bedford
Suzanne Bedford was born about 1635 in Gloucester, Angleterre,  England; the daughter of Gilbert Bedford and Anne Bonne.  Her parents, (or at least her mother), may have been hugenots in exile who moved back to France, allowing Suzanne to benefit from the scheme to colonize the small Quebec colony.
She married Mathieu Hubou on September 25, 1649 at Ville De Quebec and they would have nine children before his death on October 31, 1678 at Pointe Aux Trembles.
