Pierre BLAIS (BLAYE) - Bio

"Pierre Blais probably left France from the port of La Rochell in the Province of Aunis in 1664, destination Canada. The Dutch ship, Noir, under the command of Captain Pierre Filly of Dieppe, had at least fifty men aboard. The twenty-four-year-old Pierre is mentioned on the crew manifest as coming from Chef-Boutonne, capital of the the Canton of Deux-Sevres. Pierre was the son of Mathurin Blais and Francoise Penigaut."
