Biard Pierre 1565-1622 Came To Port Royal In 1611 With Masse The
first of their order in New France. The relations of the Jesuits with
Poutrincourt and his son Biencourt were far from cordial; little or no
progress was made with the conversion of the Micmacs; and in 1613 Biard
sailed with Masse for Mount Desert, with an expedition sent out by
Madame de Guercheville. They had hardly begun the new settlement, when
Argall swooped down, seized their ship, plundered their property, and
carried Biard and some of his companions prisoners to Virginia. Argall
brought the Jesuit back with him to Acadia the same year; the vessel in
which he sailed was carried out to sea, and after a series of adventures
Biard finally reached France and remained there. =Bib.=: Biard,
