Hocquart, chevalier, and seigneur d'Essenlis et de Muscourt. Held for a
time the office of commissary of marine, and in 1729 obtained from the
king a commission as commissary-general of New France. Arrived at Quebec
in 1729; and in 1731 succeeded Dupuy as intendant. After nearly twenty
years of service in New France, during which he devoted his energies
unselfishly to the welfare of the colony, returned to France in 1748,
and for some years filled the office of intendant at Brest. Appointed a
councillor of state, 1753. =Index=: (Wolfe / Montcalm era) Receives Montcalm at Brest, 2.
