BOUCHER, Pierre, Sieur de Boucherville, Canadian pioneer, born in Perche, France, in 1622; died in Boucherville, Canada, 20 April 1717. In 1635 he came to America with his father. He was engaged in the wars with the Iroquois, whom he frequently defeated, and was also for many years an interpreter of the Huron dialect. He was sent as a deputy by the colony to France in 1661, to lay the condition of the country before the court, and this led to the publication of his little work entitled "Histoire vdritable et naturelle des mceurs et des productions de la nouvelle France" (Paris, 1663). He was ennobled for his services, made governor of Three Rivers in 1663, and, receiving a grant of the seigneurie of Boucherville, settled there in 1668. He was esteemed as a man of courage, intelligence, piety, and integrity. From him are descended many prominent families of Canada. "The Adieux of Grandfather Boucher," addressed to his children shortly before his death, is characteristic of the man and the times.
