|Before 14 AD: The Roman emperor Augustus wanted an East-West road to link Lyons to Saintes, then inhabited by a Celtic tribe called Santons, to disseminate Roman ideas throughout the empire. The wealth accrued through the salt trade was often spent on endowing churches, hostels and abbeys.
419 AD: The Saintonge region was conquered by the Visigoths (West Goths).
987 AD: Hugh Capet, elected king of France in 987, founded the Capetian dynasty. The Capetians initially controlled only the duchy of France (Paris and Orleans), but owing to a shrewd and persistent policy of annexation their jurisdiction extended to other regions. The Truce of Chinon on September 18, 1214 enabled Philip Augustus (1180-1223) to confiscate from the English monarch John Lackland (later, King Henry III of England) the territories of Anjou, Maine, Normandy, Poitou, Saintonge (on the Bay of Biscay), and Touraine.

March 8, 1625: Pierre Charron (parents unknown) was born in St Eutrope De Saintes,
Saintonge, France (now called the Department of Charente Maritime). He was christened in the
Rochelle, Aunis, France. The Department of Charente-Maritime is situated in the southwest region of France. The region was carved out in 1790 from pieces of the ancient provinces of Aunis, Poitou and Saintonge. The region is divided into five arrondissements (or Districts): Jonzac, La Rochelle, Rochefort, Saintes and
Saint-Jean-d’Angély. Until 1941, the department was known as Charente-Inférieure.
1626: Gabrielle Beaumont (parents unknown) was born in Saintonge, France.

February 27, 1646: Jean Baptiste Charron Dit LaFerrière was born in St. Eutrope,
Saintes Parish, Saintonge, France. He was engage (enlisted) at La Rochelle (A fishing village founded in the 10th Century) on March 15, 1657 at 16 years of
age with the Carignan
Regiment, LaFouille Company. It is indicated he was from Brouage at that time. Brouage
(pictures of Brouage 1 2
3 4)was established in 1555. The harbor of Brouage was the first European place for trading in salt. In the first half of the 17th century, Richelieu transformed it into a Catholic bastion in order to fight against the rival town of La Rochelle. The walls, built between 1630 and 1640, surround the city in a square enclosure of 400 meters on each side. The walls are representative of the art of the fortifications before Vauban.
1656: Anne D’Anneville and
Antoine Filion marry in Paris, France. Anne and Antoine are blessed with the following children:
Jean Filion born October 31, 1667

June 18, 1665: Jean Baptiste Charron Dit LaFerrière (son of Pierre Charron and Gabrielle Beaumont) arrives in Quebec as a
Carignan Regiment Soldier in the LaFouille Company. According to the rolls of the Carignan Regiment, Jean was a Taillandier (an artisan who makes and sells cutting tools like scissors, chisels, shears, etc.). The La Fouille Company came across from France on the ship La Justice that departed La Rochelle on May24, 1665 and arrived on September 12, 1665 accompanying the Saint Sébastien. From these two ships, which sailed together, more than 20 men had died at sea and 130 were too weak to make it ashore by themselves.
1666: The Carignan-Salières Regiment destroys five Mohawk villages, eventually leading to peace between the Iroquois and the French.
1668: The Carignan Regiment is recalled to France. Over 450 members of the Carignan Regiment elected to stay in New France (Quebec) to establish a permanent settlement. Many of the soldiers married a Filles du Roi (King’s Daughter. These were the approximately 770 women who arrived in the colony of New France (Canada) between 1663 and 1673, under the financial sponsorship of King Louis XIV of France. Most were single French women and many were orphans. The King paid for their transportation to Canada and settlement in the colony. Some were given a royal gift of a dowry of 50 livres for their marriage to one of the many unmarried male colonists in Canada. These gifts are reflected in some of the marriage contracts entered into by the Filles du roi at the time of their first marriages. The Filles du Roi were part of King Louis XIV's program to promote the settlement of his colony in Canada. Some 737 of these women married and the resultant population explosion gave rise to the success of the colony.
1669: 'Question Extraordinaire' (torture used to extract
testimony) was used in New France at least 30 times against men and

Company of St. Ursula (Ursulines): In the early part of the
seventeenth century an appeal was made from Canada for bands of
religious women to undertake the arduous task of training the Indian
girls to Christian habits of life. It met with an instant and generous
response. In 1639 Madame de la Peltrie, a French widow of comfortable
means, offered herself and all that she had to found a mission in
Canada. In May of that year she sailed from Dieppe accompanied by three
Ursulines and three hospital sisters. At Quebec the latter founded a Hôtel-Dieu,

The Hôtel-Dieu: One of the countries most renowned hospital facilities in terms of the quality of health care is also the oldest hospital north of Mexico. So it came about that on August 1, 1639, the three nursing sisters from Dieppe — Mother Superior Marie Guenet de St-Ignace, and Nuns Anne Le Cointre de St-Bernard and Marie Forestier de St-Bonaventure disembarked for Quebec and started work on establishing the first hospital in the Americas north of Mexico. For more than three hundred years, the Order of Augustinian Sisters tirelessly dispensed health care and spiritual guidance to generations of sick people who came to this hospital. The Hôtel-Dieu has been located on its present site since 1644. From the start it had a missionary purpose and dispensed spiritual as well as bodily care to the sick. In those days its patients were accommodated in two wards holding about forty beds each. In spite of a difficult environment and very modest resources, the Hôtel-Dieu was far from being an antechamber of death: nine out of ten patients emerged cured or at least in remission.

June 2, 1880; United States Census: Tiverton, Rhode Island Census records for June 2, 1880 places Louis and his family at 15 Shove Mills Block in Tiverton, Rhode Island. Shove Mills Block was a series of houses owned by the Shove Mills. At the time of the census over 275 people were renting in the Shove Mill housing complex and almost all the tenants were French Canadian. Shove Mill housing was newly built, and contrary to the horrible conditions of other mill housing in the city it was very attractive. The Shove Mill Houses were built on very high ground just over the Massachusetts state line in Rhode Island. The mill owners stated purpose for this was to save money on taxes since Rhode Island taxes were much lower than Fall River, Massachusetts taxes at the time. Mill operatives would offer a different point of view for this geographic strategy. Operatives stated that the housing was built just over the line in Rhode Island in order for the mill owners to skirt Massachusetts law, which limited work hours and prohibited the use of young children in the mills. Rhode Island law allowed 12-hour workdays and permitted the use of child labor. The housing at Shove Mills did not have the sewage problems that plagued many other mill housing developments. Water was obtained from wells and hydrants in the yards.
Statistics of Labor for Fall River, Massachusetts during this time period show what the cost of living was for a French Canadian family working in the mills. Note the following example:
Laborer in the Mill
Father $402.00 per year
Son (Age 15) $188.00 per year
Condition - family numbers 6, with parents and four children from three to fifteen years of age; two go to school. Have a tenement of 4 rooms with good surroundings. The house is poorly furnished. Family dresses moderately well.
Lifestyle & Annual Costs of Living
Breakfast would consist of bread, butter, molasses, and coffee.
Dinner would consist of meat, potatoes, sometimes vegetables, and bread.
Supper would consist of bread, butter, and tea.
Dry Goods $12
You can see that the average family had very little left over after working 70 hours per week. The advantage that
Louis LaFerrière and his family had over many other families was in their numbers. They were young adults who were able to work. If the younger children earned $188 each and the older children earned an average of $300 per year, the family would have had a yearly income of about $2000. Their yearly living expenses would extrapolate out to about $1350. This would leave the family with a cushion and the ability to eventually move out of the mill housing and find other more inhabitable living quarters in a relatively short period of time.
Mill work was however quite brutal. The day usually started early and ended at 5pm - 6pm. The mills were hot, stuffy, choked with cotton lint, and just down right dangerous to work in. A lot of injuries occurred while working the spinning machines and many operatives succumbed to lung borne disease later in life undoubtedly due to the cotton fibers inhaled over many years of work. Operatives usually worked more than one machine at a time with children use as setup personnel and runners. Workers would make their lunch the night before because there was little time in the morning to get ready for work. The workers carried their lunch to the mill in a metal can and ate it there. Supper was usually served at 7pm and workers were in bed by 8pm. Mill operatives also worked on Saturdays, which meant that the only day off was Sunday. Sunday was spent attending mass and seeing to the chores that could not be attended to during the week. In essence, an operative spent very little time at home except to sleep. It should also be noted that French Canadians were at the bottom of the pay scale for wage earnings. German and Irish workers received higher wages than most other nationalities working as mill operatives.
The Shove Mills where Louis and his family worked actually consisted of three mills (one on Laurel Lake and one in Globe Village, Fall River, MA. The other was over the line in Tiverton, R. I.), which were started in 1872 and closed in 1932. The Shove Mills operated 77,728 spindles.
1813 - 1916 Fall River, Massachusetts:
With the Whaling Industry on the decline the first textile mill was
built in Fall River, Massachusetts in 1813. By 1913, Fall River had over
100 mills making Fall River the largest producer of of cotton in the
1880 – 1910: The Canadian Migration to the United States. During the second half of the 19th century, the eastern U.S. witnessed phenomenal growth in its textile industry, beginning in the northern states and expanding into the South. Faced with a shortage of workers following the Civil War, mill owners looked abroad to supplement their workforce. Immigrants flooded in from Canada and Europe, some coming alone and others bringing entire families to work in the mills. By the end of the century, foreign workers outnumbered native workers in all New England states. The majority of textile workers were French Canadian, with children comprising a large percentage. For example, among male and female employees under the age of sixteen, the percentage of Franco-Americans in Maine and Rhode Island was greater than the percentage of Franco-Americans overall.

Joseph LaFerrière and Marie-Margurite
Marcoux) migrates to Tiverton, Rhode Island. The Fall River, Massachusetts census of June 2, 1880 places Louis and his family at 15 Shove Mills Block in Tiverton, Rhode Island. Most of the family worked in the cotton mills for many years. Louis and his family lived at the following locations:
