NARBONNE, Peter Rend, Canadian insurgent, born in St. Remi, Canada, in 1806; died in Montreal, 15 February, 1839. He was active in the Canadian troubles of 1837, and after the defeat of the insurgents at St. Charles he escaped to the United States. He enrolled himself in the band that was organized by Lucien Gagnon (q. v.), returned to Canada, and took a conspicuous part in the unfortunate affair of Moore's Corner. After this defeat he placed himself at the head of a body of insurgents from Deux-Montagnes and fought at St. Eustache, but was taken prisoner near Sherrington and led to St. Jean. His wife was not allowed to see him, and died of grief a few days afterward. He was released in July, when an amnesty was granted to the insurgents by Lord Durham, but took part in the rising of 1838, and commanded a body of Canadians at Napierville and Odeltown. He tried to make his way through the lines after the latter engagement, but was arrested and taken to Napierville. He was tried at Montreal for high treason, 26 January, 1839, and hanged.
