    Notes 
    • Pierre Miville, known as "le Suisse," emigrated to Canada. The research of historian-genealogist Marcel Fournier revealed that under the French Régime, 106 Swiss immigrants, six of whom were women, came to New France. Of the 106, 41 married and settled permanently.

      Pierre Miville, born c1602 in the canton of Fribourg, was the first Swiss to immigrate to Canada. He was in Québec City with his wife and six children by 1649. He was in France in the second half of the 1620s. He may have been one of Cardinal Richelieu's Swiss guards. Perhaps he was one of those who laid siege to the city of La Rochelle in 1627. Eventually, he came to Brouage, the hometown of Samuel de Champlain, where he was married, c1630, to Catherine Maugis, a Saintongeaise from Saint-Germain-de-Lusignan. The couple settled at Brouage, where their seven children were born. The eldest, Gabriel, died at the age of five. Raymond Ouimet, related to the Miville family through his mother, wrote a book on Pierre Miville. He pointed out that Miville must have belonged to a coterie of people devoted to Cardinal Richelieu's interests, as all his children's godparents were either people in the cardinal's orbit or officials of the town.

      Following the death of Richelieu in 1642, a number of people associated with him had to leave Brouage. This may well explain Pierre Miville's departure for La Rochelle in 1646. (from http://www.bryan-martin.net/genealogy/getperson.php?personID=I2530&tree=gam)
