  • 1658
    Sebastien was hired by M. Pierre Boucher (sieur de Grosbois) in May 1658 to come live at Cap-la-Madeleine which had been first called Faverell River in 1647, then Cap-des-Trois-Rivières in 1651, and had become Cap-de-la-Madeleine on May 2 1652.

    The only requirement Mr. Boucher had made for his success in Canada was that Sebastien should not be lazy.
