MIMEURE, Victor Emmanuel Leon de, Canadian missionary, born in Quebec in 1723 ; died in Dinan, Brittany, in 1791. He was the son of the Marquis de Mimeure, who at his death was a lieu-tenant-general and in command of Fort Oswego on Lake Ontario. The son entered the army as lieutenant in 1740, but, resigning a few years later, became a Jesuit, and was employed in the Uruguay missions till 1767, when, owing to the ruin of his establishments by the Portuguese army under Freire de Andrada (q. v.), he returned to France. He lived in his castle near Dinan till 1791, when he was killed during the riots in the latter city. He published "Histoire des etablissements de la compagnie de Jesus dans les provinces du Paraguay et de l'Uruguay" (2 vols., Dinah, 1781); . 'Origine, histoire, description et statistique du pays des Sept missions," which may be considered as an official history of the Jesuit domination in south Uruguay (9 vols., Dinan, 1785);"Histoire des etablissements fondes par les Jesuits dans l'Amerique du Sud, depuis sa decouverte jusqu'en 1750" (4 vols., Dinan, 1787); and other works.
