MAILLARD, Abbe, born in France late in the 17th century; died in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1768. He was a priest of the Society of foreign missions of Paris, and was sent to Canada about 1738. He was afterward appointed vicar-general of Acadia. After the capture of Louisburg in 1758 he remained in the neighborhood, hiding in the woods during the daytime, and at night attending to the religious needs of the fishermen that were allowed to stay in the country. On the conclusion of peace in 1760 he left his retreat, and labored among the Indian tribes and in the few Acadian villages in Cape Breton and on the coast of Miramichi. The Micmack Indians, a partially converted tribe, at this time inflicted considerable losses on the English colonists, who found it impossible to reach them. The Abbe Maillard was requested by the governor of Halifax to use his influence to stop their cruelties, and was entirely successful. He was then invited to settle in Halifax, and a church was built for him by order of the English government, to which the Micmacks and scattered Acadians came to worship. He was buried at the expense of the English authorities.
