The French establish a Policy of non-exploration into the Indian Territories for the next 10 years.
The Metis and Coureurs des Bois, however, continue to conduct expeditions into the North and South West.
They are in the process of Nation building.


 

 

The following are, basically, Fort Detroit inhabitants who paid rent between 1707-1710, and includes those who paid no rent but are in the vicinity in 1701 or earlier, to 1710.
It would appear that rent was a form of taxation to cover the cost of government (protection) and the services of the Church.  Those who didn't pay rent, such as visiting traders, were forced to pay a Church tax anyway.  The renters, however, were required to obtain permission (permit) to leave the colony, whereas the non residents were freemen.  Some renters were, in fact, farming a fair distance from Fort Detroit, New France (Michigan),  but both farmers and town dwellers disappeared during the hunting or fur trading seasons.  Fort Detroit, New France (Michigan) was virtually empty except for the army.  It would appear that those who paid no rent are soldiers, indentured people, merchants, Coureurs des Bois, free traders, voyagers or those living among the Indians. 
It is noteworthy that the Native tribes were encouraged to settle around the Fort, and the Wendat, Oppenagos, Ottawas, Miamis, and Iroquois established settlements, immediately planting gardens.  Farming means living away from the Fort on a farm size property and may or may not include agriculture.

Lots within the palisades were generally 20 x 25 feet.  An arpent of land is 192 feet on a side.  A livre, a French coin was worth 20 cents.

The unmarried soldiers were encouraged to marry Indian woman.  It was not uncommon thing for a citizen of the fort to have left behind him a lawful wife and to have selected another in Detroit from some savage tribe.

The farm lands, so far as we now know, were nearly all granted up stream, from the fort.  One grant, and the only one of which we had positive knowledge, up to the discovery of the transfers have recently unearthed, was to de Lorme. This farm is still called the de Lorme farm, from its original  proprietor, and is situated in the township of Grosse Pointe, a short distance east of the present water works. Having the exact location of this farm, and the boundary lines of the others, it would not be as difficult a task to plan out the French concessions as it has been to map the ancient city.

A list of 31 of these farm grants; some were made to lot owners
in the city. The list of grantees is as follows:

1, Pierre Mallet;               2, Francois Fafard de Lorme;
3, Baptiste Gorion;            4, Jacob de Marsac;
5, Andre Bombardie;         6, Pierre Hemard;
7, Bonaventure Compien;  8. Jerome Marliard;
