YVES D'EVREUX, Pierre (eev-day-vrS), French missionary, born in Normandy about 1570-d. in Evreux about 1630. He entered the Capuchin order and was prior of the convent at Evreux in 1611, when he was named one of the three missionaries to accompany Claude d'Abbeville to Brazil. They anchored opposite Marajo island, at the mouth of the Amazon, built houses and a chapel on the island, and were soon on friendly terms with the Indians. Father Claude returned to France in 1612, and Yves led an expedition through the interior of Brazil, collecting medicinal plants and specimens in natural history. Early in 1613 Razillv sailed for La Rochelle, leaving about twenty soldiers to guard the fort, and promised re-enforcements and supplies; but they never came, and Father Claude freighted a schooner, which carried the settlers and missionaries to the West Indies. Yves wrote an account of his voyage to Brazil which was published at the end of Claude d'Abbeville's narrative, "Histoire de la mission des P. P. Capucins, a I'lle de Maragnon et terres circonvoisines" (Paris, 1615), and was reprinted with notes and an introduction by Ferdinand Denis, from the only known copy, which is preserved in the national library at Paris. It is entitled "Voyage dans le nord du Brdsil, fait pendant les anuses 1611 a 1614" (Paris, 1864).
