After the British conquest of 1760, the English began to settle in Québec. Many former naval and army officers bought land. Many of the seigneuries in the Trois-Rivières/Bécancour/Nicolet area now had British owners, with names like Hart, Munro, Chandler, Cuthbert, and Gugy. In this episode, Julie and François also talk about different waves of refugees who fled to the area for safety.
