LOMBARD, French missionary, died after 1744. He was a Jesuit, and the most successful of all the missionaries in converting the Indians of French Guiana. He came to that country in 1705, and was still engaged in missionary work in 1744. In 1730 he founded a Christian village that contained over 600 Indians, at the mouth of Kuru river, and in 1744 he established another at Sinamary. Condamine mentions in his "Relation abregee" that on setting out for Surinam he was furnished by the missionary with several Indian canoers. His works on two "Relations," which are dated at Kuru, 23 February, 1730, and 11 April, 1733, and published in the "Lettres edifiantes" (Paris, 1843). They contain an interesting account of the Kuru, Ouyapoc, and Galabi tribes. There is also another narrative addressed to his brother from Kuru, and dated 1723, which is inserted in the " Voyage de chevalier de Marchais" of Labat, where it fills sixty-four pages (Paris, 1730). He also wrote a grammar and dictionary of the language of the Galabis, on which he was engaged for more than thirty years.
