Biencourt De Poutrincourt Jean De Baron De Saint Just 1557-1615
Had won distinction as a soldier in the service of France; and in 1604
sailed with De Monts and Champlain to Acadia. Was so charmed with Port
Royal that he determined to make it his home. De Monts made him a grant
of the lands about Annapolis Basin, which the king confirmed. Went back
to France and brought out his family to the new settlement. Accompanied
Champlain in his exploration of the Bay of Fundy. Jesuit missionaries
were sent out to Port Royal, whom Poutrincourt, although a good Roman
Catholic, found far from congenial. Their relations became more and more
strained, and when Poutrincourt sailed to France in 1613, the Jesuits
succeeded in having him thrown into prison. Regained his liberty and
returned to Acadia, but found Port Royal in ashes. Returned to France
and fell in the attack on Mery. =Index=: (Samuel de Champlain era) Goes with De Monts to
Acadia, 19; lieutenant of De Monts at Port Royal, 34; joins Champlain in
