Because of war with England (Anglo-French War (1627–1629)), the first two convoys of ships and settlers bound for the colony were waylaid near Gaspé (Gaspé, Quebec) by British privateers under the command of three French-Scottish Huguenot brothers, David (David Kirke), Louis and Thomas Kirke. Quebec was effectively cut off. On 19 July 1629, with Quebec completely out of supplies and no hope of relief, Champlain surrendered Quebec to the Kirkes without a fight. Champlain and other colonists were taken to England, where they learned that peace had been agreed (in the 1629 Treaty of Susa) before Quebec's surrender, and the Kirkes were obliged to return their takings. However, they refused, and it was not until the 1632 Treaty of Saint-Germain-en-Laye (Treaty of Saint-Germain-en-Laye (1632)) that Quebec and all other captured French possessions in North America were returned to New France. Champlain was restored as de facto governor but died three years later.

Kirke and his brothers captured Tadoussac in 1628 and demanded that Samuel de Champlain surrender Quebec (Quebec City). When their demand was refused they left, but captured a French supply fleet near Gaspé (Gaspé, Quebec), putting Quebec into precarious condition.
