Barkley Charles William 1759-1832 Served In The East India
Company; sailed on a trading voyage for sea-otter skins to the
Company Of Rouen And St Malo Champlain's Company
the instance of Champlain, in 1614. The shares were divided among the
merchants of Rouen and St. Malo. The terms of their charter required the
Company to bring out colonists, but as usual they did not take this
obligation very seriously. They did, however, make one notable addition
to the population of New France, for in the spring of 1617 they brought
out Louis Hebert and his family. Hebert's experience as a colonist was
not such as to encourage others to follow his example. The Company's
monopoly was cancelled in 1620. =Index=: (Samuel de Champlain era) Formed by Champlain, 122;
