Maisonneuve Paul De Chomedy Sieur De
In this "devout and valiant
gentleman," as Parkman says, lived again the spirit of Godfrey de
Bouillon, leader of the first Crusade. He had seen much service in
European wars, before the opportunity came to consecrate his sword to
the church in Canada. A group of enthusiasts in France had obtained a
grant of the Island of Montreal from Lauson and the Company of New
France, and purposed to establish there a religious colony, of which
Maisonneuve was appointed governor. Sailed from Rochelle, in 1641, with
a company of soldiers and artisans; wintered at Quebec; and on the
eighteenth of May, 1642, landed on the same spot where Champlain had
stood thirty-one years before. Here he and his men set to work to build
a chapel, fort, and their simple habitations, thereby laying the
foundation of the future city of Montreal. Was for 22 years governor of
Montreal, but through the jealousy of De Mesy, governor-general of
Canada, was recalled to France by De Tracy in 1664. Though no charges
were made against him he found no possibility of reinstatement in office
and resigned in 1669; died in 1676. =Index=: (Count Frontenac era) Conducts mission colony
