JEREMIE, French soldier, born about 1660; died after 1714. He served as ensign in Fort Bourbon, or Port Nelson, on Hudson bay, when it was attacked by an English fleet in 1696. When the English attempted a landing he formed an ambuscade with forty fusileers behind bushes, and poured such well-directed volleys into the first boats that advanced as to compel them to withdraw. The fort was afterward forced to surrender, and Jeremie, with the garrison, was taken to England, contrary to the terms of capitulation. He returned with D'Iberville to Canada in 1697, and remained there as interpreter and lieutenant under several commanders till 1707, when he went to Europe. He returned in 1708, was appointed commandant of Fort Bourbon, and held that post up to 1714, when he surrendered it to the English, agreeably to the terms of the treaty of Utrecht. He wrote "Relation du Detroit; & de la Baye d'Hudson, a Monsieur . . . par Monsieur Jeremie." Charlevois says that he knew the author, and that his relation is very instructive and judiciously written.
