VALINIERE, Pierre Huet de la (vah-leen-yare), Canadian clergyman, born in Brittany in 1732 ; died in Canada in 1806. He entered the Sulpitian order and went to Quebec, where he was ordained priest in 1757. After the English conquest he excited the hostility of the government, and was sent as a prisoner to England, where he remained eighteen months, He then returned to France, but was received coldly, and went again to Canada. He was advised to leave the country by Ms superiors, who feared complications with the government, lie then travelled on foot, to New York, and became pastor of the French and French Canadians in that city. Shortly afterward he spent several years in "travelling through Louisiana and part of Spanish America. In 1790 he settled among the Canadians at Split Rock Bay, where he built a church and residence. His eccentricities excited so much hostility among his flock that, in order to force him to go away, they burned his house and church. He published an account of his travels in verse, entitled " Vraie histoire, on simple precis des infortunes, pour he pas dire persecutions qu'a souffert et souffre encore le Reverend P. H. de la V." (Albany, 1792).
