Biencourt De Poutrincourt Charles 1583-1638? Son Of Jean De
Biencourt. Accompanied his father to Port Royal in 1605. Returned to
France in 1610; made vice-admiral in the seas of New France, and,
somewhat unwillingly, brought with him to Acadia in 1611 the Jesuits
Biard and Masse. While absent from Port Royal, the fort was attacked and
burnt by Argall in 1613. Biencourt partially rebuilt Port Royal, and was
still there in 1618. Returned to France some time before 1621, and
appointed director of the Royal Academy of Paris, which position he held
up to the time of his death. =Bib.=: Parkman, Pioneers of France;
