Genealogy of the French in North America

Captives (preliminary version)

Captives are prisoners taken during a raid at the time of colonial wars (known as French and Indian wars in USA), opposing New France and New England. The list also include persons killed during raids.

This is a preliminary list that will be improved with next releases.

General Statistics

In the whole population of the province of Québec (computed from 100 couples married in 1939 and 1940), about 26% would have at least one English Captive line in their ancestry. Moreover, about 29% of the Quebecers with old French roots have some Captive blood that can be found with a paper trail. Denis Beauregard can perform the relevant research for a fee.


Background colors mean:

  • Green: indicates there are descendants after 1899 in the database.
  • Blue: indicates there is no descendant after 1899 in the database but living descendants may exist

Notes :

  • The column "Descendants" indicates the marriages in the complete database, where some genealogies are private.
  • 11/2032 means 11 generations and 2032 marriages of descendants in the database (duplicates not filtered).
  • () indicates the most recent marriage in the database.
  • [] indicates the most recent marriage in completely male or female line in the database (for DNA analysis)
  • The column "Estimated Living Descendants in Quebec" is based on 100 genealogies from couples married in the province of Québec in 1939 and 1940.

English Captives in Quebec

This table is a list of captives from English colonies (New England or Newfoundland) taken by natives and/or French during the French regime. Most of them were taken to Quebec or Acadia after they were taken. Some died during an attack.

Captives were often taken during raids organized by French accompanied by natives during colonial wars. They became slaves in most cases before being purchased by some French or by English (ransom). Many were naturalized and were married in New France.

While there are many lists of prisoners on each side of the border, most names are from individual records.

Many accurate dates of birth are given. In most cases, these dates are from Quebec records and not from records found in USA. If the record is from an American register, the source is indicated in the CD-ROM version (but not on the Web version).

French Captives in Quebec

People shown below are French or Canadians made prisoners during colonial wars and living within the modern border of the province of Québec when they were caught.

Usually, English led their Native allies (Mohawk or Iroquois agniers in French) to make raids but didn't accompany them. Thus, there were few if any integration of French captives to the English families even if some French likely joined some Mohawk nation after being taken. Mohawk villages or far from English settlements, which explain the limited moves to English villages. However, some French families lived voluntarily, at least temporary, in New England. These families are not shown here.

Possible English Captives in Québec

This table is a list of Englishmen from colonies (New England or Newfoundland) that may be taken by Natives and/or French during the French period. This list is based on English people appearing in Québec records during the French period but not yet linked to an indice of captivity (usually, this is shown in some vital records and there are some lists of captives).

Many accurate dates of birth are given. In most cases, these dates are from Quebec records and not from records found in USA. If the record is from an American register, the source is indicated in the CD-ROM version (but not on the Web version).
