COURCELLES, Daniel de Remi, Seigneur de, French governor of Canada. He was sent out to succeed Mezy in 1666, and in the same year led an expedition on snow-shoes against the Mohawks, aiding Tracy in their reduction. In 1671 he determined to establish a post on Lake Ontario, to act as a barrier between the Ottawas and the Iroquois, and at the same time draw off trade from Hudson river. Having constructed a large plank flat-boat of two or three tons burden, provided with a strong rope to draw it over rapids and shoals, he left Montreal on 3 June, with a party of fifty-six. They reached Lake Ontario on 12 June, and selected a site for a post. The project of Courcelles met with the approval of Louis XIV. ; but he returned to France in 1672 on account of failing health, and it was left for his successor, Frontenae, to carry it out, which he did on 14 July, 1673, by the construction of a fort at Katarakoui (Kingston). See Margry's "D6couvertes et 6tablissements des Francais dans l'Am6rique septentrionale," i., 169, and Brodhead's "New York Colonial Documents," ix., 75.
