Denys Nicolas 1598-1688 Born At Tours Early Took To Sea And In
1633 became interested in the fisheries of Nova Scotia. A short time
after made one of the lieutenants of Acadia under the Company of New
France, and settled at Miscou. In 1647 his fort seized by D'Aulnay, who
had just been made lieutenant-general of the colony. In 1650 his
establishment in Cape Breton captured and he himself taken prisoner. A
second attempt to settle in Cape Breton frustrated by Le Borgne.
Returned to France in 1653, and received a grant of the islands of the
St. Lawrence, including a monopoly of the fur trade, and shortly after
became governor of that territory, together with Newfoundland. In 1667
obtained a confirmation of his rights, but in the winter of 1668-1669
his establishment at St. Peters completely destroyed by fire. In 1671
returned to France and engaged in the preparation of his work on Acadia.
About 1685 returned to Acadia, but his closing years darkened by the
scattering of his vast estates. Died three years later, at the age of 90
years. =Index=: (Samuel de Champlain era) Abandons Chedabucto and goes to Cape Breton, thence
