BEAUJEU, Hyacinthe Marie L. de (bo-zhuh), soldier, born in Montreal, 9 August 1711 ; killed in action, 9 July 1755. His first military experience was in the French navy, where he attained the rank of captain and was awarded the cross of St. Louis for distinguished services. He obtained the seigniory of La Colle on Chambly river, Canada, in 1733, succeeded Contrecour in command at Fort Duquesne in 1755, and planned the ambuscade that resulted in Braddock's defeat, 9 July. Beaujeu was in command of the French and Indians, and was killed by the first fire of the British. See " Relations diverse sur la battaille de Monongahela," collected by J. M. Shea (New York, 1860).
