    Notes:

    From the Dictionary of Canadian Biography:

    RICHARD, dit Lafleur, GUILLAUME (styled Sieur de La Fleur), soldier of the Carignan-Salières regiment, captain of the Canadian militia, and at one time churchwarden; b. 1641, son of Jean Richard, seedsman, and his wife, Anne Meusnier, of Saint-Léger, bishopric of Saintes, France; d. 1690.

    A strong family tradition states that Richard was the descendant of John Richards, a Welshman, who, as a member of the king's bodyguard, assisted the French king, Charles IX, to escape through the back gardens of the palace during the frightful massacre of St. Bartholomew, 14 Aug. 1572.

    Richard entered the French army as a young man, joining the Carignan-Salières regiment at its formation in 1664. On the last day of May of the following year he embarked for New France with his regiment, as a soldier in the company of Roger de Bonneau de La Varenne, arriving at Quebec on 19 August, after a long and tempestuous voyage. Two years later, when his regiment returned to France, Richard chose to remain in Canada. Shortly thereafter he was appointed sergeant in the Canadian forces, in which rank he accompanied governor Frontenac to Cataracoui where Fort Frontenac was founded in 1673. He remained at the new post as its first commandant when the French returned to Quebec. Richard continued in that capacity until the return of Cavelier de La Salle in 1675, and was still at the fort in September 1677, according to a census of its garrison. Shortly thereafter he was appointed sergeant of the garrison at Montreal. By 1684 he was lieutenant of the vanguard company of that post and later he was captain of militia in the parish of Pointe-aux-Trembles de Montréal, where he had maintained his residence since 1679. Guillaume Richard, dit Lafleur, met a soldier's death on 2 July 1690, near Bout-de-l'Île de Montréal, when his small party of 25 was overwhelmed by a band of Iroquois warriors. Six days later the bodies of the fallen were buried hurriedly where they fell. In 1694 their remains were exhumed and reinterred in the cemetery of Pointe-aux-Trembles.

    Guillaume married Agnès Tessier on 26 Nov 1675 in Montréal, Québec. Agnès (daughter of Urbain Tessier dit Lavigne and Marie Archambault) was born before 23 Mar 1659; died before 24 Jan 1733; was buried on 24 Jan 1733 in Pointe-aux-Trembles, Québec. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Notes:

    Born about 1624 (census 1666) or 1619 (burial 1689). He was a sawyer. His 1651 grant of land in what became Montréal appears to have included portions of the Place d'Armes and of the Palais des Congrès de Montréal, site of the 2009 World Science Fiction Convention.

    From his Wikitree page, citing a Rootsweb page that appears to no longer exist:

    Urbain Tessier received a land grant in Montreal January 10, 1648, from M. de Maisonneuve. He was also one of the first five colonists to have a child baptized in Montreal. He also received a later grant. The following inscription is found sculptured into a building block of the facade of The Royal Trust Company, Rue St-Jacques in Montreal, Canada: THIS BUILDING IS ERECTED ON PART OF THE ORIGINAL CONCESSION TO URBAIN TESSIER DIT LAVIGNE BEING THE 8th GRANT MADE TO AN INDIVIDUAL IN THE ISLAND OF MONTREAL. Urbain Tessier was taken prisoner by the Iroquois March 24, 1661, along with others, and for some time the family did not know if he was alive or dead. Some of these prisoners were tortured and killed; Urbain Tessier lost a finger. He was finally liberated, through negotiations, along with the other last eight prisoners, by Père Simon Lemoine on August 31, 1661.
