Le Gardeur De Repentigny Jean Baptiste 1632-1709 Son Of Pierre Le
Gardeur (q.v.). His father brought him to Canada at the age of four
years. Resided in Montreal, 1642-1643; and in 1656 married Marguerite,
daughter of Jean Nicolet, the explorer. In 1663 elected mayor of Quebec,
but promptly resigned under official pressure, the policy of the
government being opposed to anything approaching popular government.
Raised a company of volunteers at Quebec in 1665, and accompanied the
regulars to Three Rivers, which they were just in time to save from an
Iroquois attack. In 1687 accompanied Denonville on his expedition
against the Iroquois. =Index=: (Count Frontenac era) Goes to France on behalf of Montreal
