NOUE, Charles Edouard de la (noo), French explorer, born in Anjou in 1624; died in Versailles in 1691. He entered the priesthood, but devoted his time to science, and was sent in 1665 to explore Tierra del Fuego and the western coast of Patagonia, over which France claimed jurisdiction. He wandered for several years through Patagonia, was taken prisoner by the Indians, and, adopting their dress and habits, lived with them, learned their language, and won their confidence so far that he was allowed to embark on a passing vessel, and returned to France. He published "Memoire a sa Majeste sur la mission de l'abbee de la None a la Terre de Feu, et dans le pays des Patagons, avec un vocabulaire du langage de ces peuples" (2 vols., Paris, 1675). This work, by its true description of Patagonia, prevented any further attempts of the French to establish settlements in that country.
