Pontbriand Henri-marie Dubreuil De 1709-1760 Born In Vannes
France. In 1741 consecrated bishop of Quebec, and left Paris for Canada.
Soon after his arrival in Quebec engaged in a lawsuit with the nuns of
the general hospital as to the ownership of the episcopal palace, which
they claimed Bishop Saint-Vallier had bequeathed to them. The king,
however, confirmed him in its possession. Another royal decree
prohibited religious congregations from holding lands in mortmain, but
the bishop refused to enforce it. In 1760, after the fall of Quebec, he
appointed a vicar-general, admonished the clergy to observe strictly the
terms of capitulation, and went to Montreal, where he died after a short
illness. =Index=: (Wolfe / Montcalm era) Bishop of Quebec, urges inhabitants to take to
