Who won that one? Did the French surrender?

British and Prussians won. It actually was the Seven Years War, a World War, with the American component called the French and Indian War.

Russia, Austria, and France all ganged up on Prussia; Frederick the Great beat them all (barely, after fortuitously getting the Russians to withdraw from the war) in Europe.

Here, after some initial French success, the British took Quebec and therefore captured Canada from the French.
