Another Louis Jacques ?

 

According to Le Consulat Général de France, in Montréal, there is a Louis Jacques (not related (?) and who should not appear in the family tree) who came to Québec as a clergyman.  He did not reside in the province, it would seem that he travelled across Canada to evangelise the native Indians. He came back to Charlesbourg and died a few weeks later.  The only official records for this person are his birth - 1662, his arrival in Québec in 1679* and of his death in 1712*.

Just a word of caution for Louis the clergyman, the word clergyman was translated from the French term ''Reiligieux'' which designates a person belonging to a religious congregation.  This person was not necessarily a priest. He could have been a friar, a lay brother, monk, ... etc.

This information received from Robert Jacques of Quebec.
