Biography

Notables Project
Louis (Liénard) Liénard de Beaujeu de Villemomble is Notable.

"Dictionary of Canadian Biography, Volume V (1801-1820): 'LIÉNARD DE BEAUJEU DE VILLEMONDE, LOUIS (baptized Louis-Joseph), army and militia officer and seigneur; b. 16 Sept. 1716 in Montreal (Que.), third son of Louis Liénard de Beaujeu and Thérèse-Denise Juchereau de Saint-Denys, née Migeon de Branssat; d. 5 June 1802 in Cap-Saint-Ignace, Lower Canada.

Born into a noble family with a long military tradition... He and his brother Daniel-Hyacinthe-Marie Liénard de Beaujeu sailed in June 1746 with Jean-Baptiste-Nicolas-Roch de Ramezay’s expedition for Baie-Verte (N.B.). On 22 September he was sent by Ramezay to receive orders for his troops from the Duc d’Anville [La Rochefoucauld], who had come from France with a large force to clear the British out of Acadia. Beaujeu fought in the battle of Grand Pré on 11 Feb. 1747 against Lieutenant-Colonel Arthur Noble*. During the Acadian campaign Beaujeu, who was a pious Roman Catholic, killed a British soldier who was also Catholic and, according to the author Philippe-Joseph Aubert de Gaspé, this incident still affected Beaujeu at the end of his life... On 18 July 1747 at Quebec Beaujeu married Louise-Charlotte, daughter of François-Étienne Cugnet, member of the Conseil Supérieur..." [1]

"Dictionary of Canadian Biography, Volume III (1741-1770): 'LIÉNARD DE BEAUJEU, LOUIS, officer in the colonial regular troops; b. in Paris, France, 16 April 1683... Three sons survived him: the scholarly Louis-Joseph, the officer Daniel-Hyacinthe-Marie, and Louis Liénard de Beaujeu de Villemomble, the last French commandant at Michilimackinac, who distinguished himself during the American revolution.'"

why is he categorized with Great upheaval and American revolution? He was not an Acadian who got deported, he was a military man.
