Brebeuf Jean De 1593-1649 Born Of A Noble Family Of Normandy
Came to Canada, 1625; spent the winter of 1625-1626 among the
Algonquins. In the latter year, after a long and difficult journey by
way of the Ottawa and Lake Nipissing, reached the villages of the
Hurons, on Georgian Bay, where he established the first mission.
Returned to Quebec in 1629, and in 1634 re-established the Huron
mission. In 1640 made an unsuccessful attempt to establish a mission
among the intractable Neutral Nation, north of Lake Erie. Returned to
the Huron mission, where, in 1649, he was captured by the Iroquois, and
burned at the stake with unmentionable cruelties. His skull is preserved
in the Hotel-Dieu at Quebec. =Index=: (Samuel de Champlain era) Sails for New France on De
