Pierre then moved his family to LaRochelle. Once settled there, in 1646, he obtained a piece of land and contracted to build a rather large house. However, the contract was annulled, and shortly after, the family immigrated to New France. They came on one of two ships, the “Grand Cardinal” or the “Notre Dame”. They departed from LaRochelle on 29 May 1649. The latter docked at Quebec on 24 August and the former on 27 September. The first record of the Mivilles in Quebec came quickly as his daughter, Marie, is noted as being a godmother on 5 October of that same year. Because of his skills as a woodworker, the family was welcomed and on 29 October the Governor granted the family 3 pieces of land. Two of them on the plain of Abraham, one 3 arpents [570 feet]by 40 arpents [7600 feet] deep assigned to Pierre, the other 4 arpents [760 feet] by 40 arpents [7600 feet] deep, located further up river, was assigned to his oldest son, 15 year old Francois. 1667, Charlotte and her husband, Pierre, were listed on the Canadian Census in Levis County, Quebec, Canada.
