Carignan Regiment

Soldiers in the Carignan-Salières Regiment

By the mid 1600's the French in New France had developed very strong commercial ties with the Algonquin and Huron Indians in the fur trade. So when the Iroquois waged war on the Algonquins and Hurons, as they had for many years, even before the Europeans arrived in North America, the French went to the aid of their commercial partners. By doing so, the French earned the hatred of the Iroquois. Prodded on by the English, who also wanted the French out of North America, the Iroquois began raiding French villages and slaughtering the people.

When the Iroquois began raiding French villages and slaughtering the people, the French began to form military units under militia Captain Pierre Boucher. However, this wasn't enough so Governor Davaugour dispatched Pierre Boucher to France to seek help from King Louis XIV.

At that time, there was a regiment of seasoned soldiers in France known as the Carignan Regiment. It had been formed as a private army in 1644 by Thomas François de Savoie, Prince de Carignan. This was an army for hire, made up of hand-picked volunteers. The standards were very high and these men had to be big and strong physically with a strong fighting spirit. In the hire of the King of France, this regiment had just returned from a successful engagement against the Turks. Rather than demobilize the regiment, the King determined to send it to New France (Canada) to help the colonists. The Regiment was placed under the command of Henri de Chapelas, Sieur de Salières and was therefore renamed the Carignan-Salières Regiment.

In 1662, the Marquis Alexandre de Prousille de Tracy was named Lt. General of North and South America by Louis XIV. He was ordered to wipe out the Iroquois in New France. This was to be accomplished by the Carignan Regiment. In April of 1665, he left for New France, arriving in Québec on June 30th. Over the next three months the rest of the Regiment - officers and soldiers - arrived from France 1,200 strong.

Over the next two years, the Regiment manned garrisons and launched attacks on the Iroquois. By the end of this period, their task was accomplished. The countryside became peaceful for a time. About 800 of these soldiers went back to France. The remaining 400 stayed. The officers were encouraged to stay with promises of fiefs (land containing many square miles). Their troops were promised concessions of large tracts of land in these same fiefs. They could farm and start a new life in the New World.. this land called New France ~ Canada!

Please note that many of these Carignan soldiers married King's Daughters/Filles du Roi. These couples became our first ancestral parents from the Québec province.




Rather than designate company numbers or letters to identify them as armies do today, the Carignan-Salières Regiment named its companies after their company commanders. Some of these commanders remained in New France after their tour of duty was over and were given concessions of large Seigneuries. Now that they were Seigneurs, they lent their names to their Seigneuries. To this day, several of these names remain towns of Québec. Following are the Companies of the Carignan Regiment:
