Area 10,000 square miles. Discovered by Brebeuf and
Chaumonot, 1640. It is possible that the lake may have been first seen
by white men at a still earlier date, when the Franciscan friar, La
Roche Dallion, visited the Neutral nation, 1626, but there is no direct
evidence. The lake is mentioned under its present name in Lalemant's
Relation of 1641, as well as in that of Ragueneau, 1648. La Salle's
Griffon was the first ship to sail its waters, 1679. First clearly
shown on Sanson map of 1650. =Bib.=: Chaumonot, Vie; Harris, Early
Missions; Parkman, Jesuits in North America.
