L'AUBERIVI'ERE, Francis Louis de Pour-roy de (lobe'-ree'-vyair'), Canadian R. C. bishop, born in Attigny, France, in 1711; died in Quebec in 1741. He belonged to a noble family, and possessed very great wealth, which he intended to spend in establishing institutions of religion and charity in Canada. He was consecrated bishop of Quebec in Paris in 1739, and embarked for Canada. During the voyage a contagious disease broke out on board, and his attendance upon the sick produced the malady of which he died. When he arrived in Quebec in 1740, a report was spread that he had wrought miracles on board ship, which caused him to be received with great enthusiasm. Before he had time. to become acquainted with his flock he was attacked by the fever that proved fatal. It was claimed that miracles were wrought at his tomb, which is still visited by Canadian Catholics, who have faith in the power of his intercession.
