Québec, Québec, Canada (Quebec City) - 1700 (Quebec)
The French population in the Colony of Canada numbered about fifteen thousand. The Crown ceded almost all the riverfront; from Quebec to Montreal. This opened nearly two hundred seigneurs for rural settlement, and three of four families engage in farming. Every year, four or five hundred voyagers received permission to enter the fur trade around the Great Lakes, and as many as five to six times that number went without permission.
