"Gilbert Barbier was one of the pioneers that arrived at Ville-Marie in 1642. While he was not present at the founding of Ville-Marie in May 1642, he joinedthe group later in the season.

Because of his small size, he was called “Le Minimie”.

During the early years of Ville Marie, Barbier lives in Box, probably in the huts built for the artisans.

On January 13, 1648, Gilbert Barbier was witness at the wedding of Louis Loisel and Marguerite Charlot who were married at the home of Jeanne Mance. [The grandchildren of Gilbert Barbier and Louis Loisel would later marry (Joseph Loisel m. Marguerite Beaudry, 1710).]

In 1650 he married Catherine Delaval. They had 8 children."

"On August 15th the first reinforcement of thirteen men arrived, sent under M. de Repentigny, as admiral of the Company's vessels by the Associates at Paris, through the funds collected, as mentioned, on February 2d. With them there came a most useful man to the colony, the pious and brave carpenter, Gilbert Barbier, surnamed "Minimus" for his short stature. Altar, furniture and other valuables arrived, and Gilbert Barbier immediately set about constructing a worthy chapel of wood, while wings were added to make the mission settlement house."
