Denonville Jacques-rene De Brisay Marquis De
Eleventh governor of
New France. Colonel of Dragoons in French army; spent thirty years in
military service before coming to Canada, in 1685, as successor to La
Barre. Although a capable officer, found himself in a difficult
situation owing to the condition to which the country had been brought
by the failure of La Barre and the intrigues of the English governor of
New York. Adopted a severe policy with the Indians, and was condemned
for his treacherous seizure of Iroquois at Fort Frontenac in 1687. The
horrible massacre of Lachine was one of the consequences of his
maladministration. Succeeded in the government of the colony by
Frontenac in 1689. Died in 1710. =Index=: (Count Frontenac era) Succeeds La Barre as
