Tobacco was also called Sot-Weed. John Barth's rambling picaresque novel The Sot-Weed Factor set in that early America is a good read. The main protagonist is actually based on a real person. It's very funny in places but also gives a good impression of the general free for all that went on in that early frontier and the rogues and rapscallions who inhabited it.

Thanks for posting...
I just finished reading The King's Daughter's and Founding Mother's (The Filles du Roi) 1663 - 1673. The idea was a knock off of similar successful programs under taken previously in New Spain & New England.
Cheers, Patrick

Casquette girls

Casquette girls another reminder of New France in the province of Louisiana..
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casquette_girl
Like in the Province of Quebec, Colony of New France their were more men than women in the colony.
So Fur Trader Colonists like Pierre & Paul Mallet of Montreal remembered in place names like The Canadian River, Bayou Mallet & Bois Mallet & others in Louisiana placed an order as well.

Why buy the cow when you can rent? The pirate Willem Albertse Blaeuvelt was married to Niuew Amsterdam's most successful madame. I'm guessing that that arrangement made shopping easy for Mrs Blauvelt come birthdays and Christmas and whatnot.

There was a pecking order involved even in Frontier Hierarchies. The women probably went to the best possible place they could given the choice.
Acadia was probably high on the list.. https://www.acadian.org/
Fur Trade Archaeology: A study of Frontier Hierarchies by Charles R. Ewen
A Coureurs de Bois (Independent Entrepreneurial who went native would be considered an out cast.
The system of Hierarchy was constantly reinforced even more so in the tiny Fur Trade Out Posts.
So a European wife became important to fit into society as Frontier Societies grew in North America.

One SF writer in the golden age (it may have been Sheckley) took up the theme in a story of a settler on some remote extra terrestrial planet who thaws out his cryogenic Mail Order Bride who turns out to be a long leged beauty who can't set a trap, skin a pseudobit or cook a phlanx let alone cure the skin of an exobear. He is most disappointed. He'd ordered the frontier model.

Kipling and and Candler both describe the "Fishing Fleet" which was an annual influx in British India of young(ish) ladies seeking suitable matrimonial partners,

Most Soldier Explorer's in the Fur Trade had at least two wives one Wintering Wife in Montreal and one or more Summer Wives in the field like William McGillivray @ North West Company Fort William named after him.
Sir George Simpson Hudson's Bay Company was known to be a rapacious womanizer every where he went and that was everywhere the company went in the British Empire.
Maybe the ultimate male sexual fantasy was that of the first President's of the United States like George Washington & Thomas Jefferson (Negro President: Jefferson and Slave Power by Gary Wills.
