Starting Six

From the Montreal The Gazette, the sports section no less! ...comes this article on the starting six players in Canada's foundation.

...Samuel de Champlain was the most famous original Habitant of New France. But many of his contemporaries made their mark, too. Herewith is a proposed all-star team - a Starting Six from the earliest days of the French presence in North America...

It seems my ancestor Étienne De Nevers sieur de Brantigny did not make the cut. Zut!

More founders of Canada and Montreal...

Vive le Roi!
Brantigny
