TRANCHEPAIN DE SAINT AUGUSTINE, Marie de, mother superior, born in Rouen, France ; died in New Orleans, Louisiana, 11 November, 1733. She belonged to an old Huguenot family, but became a Roman Catholic, and, shortly after her conversion in 1699, entered the Ursuline order. She conceived the idea of founding a convent in this country, and, although she met with great difficulties, finally procured money and companions for her purpose. She sailed for Louisiana on 22 January, 1727, accompanied by seven professed nuns, a novice, and two seculars, and reached New Orleans on 7 August The Ursuline convent that she founded was not opened until 1734. The building is still standing, and is the oldest in the city. She also managed a hospital, an academy for young ladies, a school for the poor, an orphan asylum, and an institution for the religious instruction of negroes.
