NOGRE, Vincent de (no-gray), French administrator, born in Blois in 1629; died in Paris in 1694. He was the son of a judge in the parliament of Paris, and, after studying law, was admitted to the bar, but as his voice was weak he accompanied his cousin, De Maisonneuve, the agent of the Montreal company, to Villemarie as his secretary, which post he retained from 1653 till 1663. Maisonneuve never undertook anything without consulting him, and on several occasions he helped the company out of difficulties in questions of jurisdiction with the governor-general of the colony. When in 1659 the Viscount d'Argenson came on a visit to Villemarie and demanded the keys of the fortress, Nogre suggested to Maisonneuve a practical course by which the latter was enabled to retain control of the fort without offending the governor-general. Returning to France in 1661, Nogre sought in vain for several years to recover his salary, which was in arrears, and refused brilliant offers from the Hundred associates, as he claimed that the protection afforded by the company and the crown to the settlers was inadequate, and would cause the loss of the colony. His memoirs to the king on the state of the colony of Canada caused a sensation, and the members of the Montreal and Hundred associates cdmpanies, fearing that his revelations would be injurious to them, persecuted him, destroyed the copies of his works, and caused several pamphlets to be printed in reply. Nogre's principal works are "Expose de l'etat de la colonic de Villemarie depuis sa fondation jusqu'en 1660" (Paris, 1667) and "Histoire des etablissements fondes par Ies Francais darts la Nouvelle France du Nord depuis sa decouverte par Jacques Cartier jusqu'a l'administration du Vicomte d'Argenson, avec un recit des guerres soutenues contre les Hurons, les Algonquins et les Iroquois" (2 vols., Amsterdam, 1675).
