Jesuit missionary in the Huron country, 1643. Had been
a professor of rhetoric in France, before coming to Canada. When the
Hurons were driven from their country by the Iroquois, in 1649, he and
Garnier led their demoralized flock to the Island of St. Joseph, in
Matchadash Bay, an inlet of Georgian Bay. Even here the Iroquois
followed them, and attacked the mission of St. Jean, Dec. 7, 1649.
Chabanel had left the place a short time before, and so escaped the
general massacre. He, however, fell a victim to one of his own Hurons,
who confessed that he had murdered the missionary and thrown his body
into a river. =Index=: (Bishop Laval era) Died a martyr, 62. =Bib.=: Parkman, Jesuits
