AUBREY, Captain d', knight of St. Louis, died 24 February 1770. He was an officer in the French army. On 14 September 1758, he defeated Major Grant at Fort Duquesne. In 1759 he was taken prisoner by Sir William Johnson at Niagara. In New Orleans he was commandant, and on 4 February 1765, succeeded to the government. He surrendered the colony to Ulloa in March 1766; but, after the expulsion of that governor in 1768, he resumed the administration until General O'Reilly came in July 1769. On his return voyage to France he was wrecked and drowned in the Garonne.
