About Jean de Lalonde dit L'Esperance

Tué par les Iroquois le 30 septembre 1687.

Jean Lalonde dit Lesperance was born in the Normandy region of France and had come to the colony of New France as a Carignan-Saliere (soldier). He had three marriage contracts that were annulled before finally marrying Marie Barbant, a "fille du roi", in 1669.

In 1687 he and nine other men were working together, and were attacked by an Indian raiding party. All the men in the group were killed. Jean and Marie were living in a most vulnerable spot at the point of Ile de Montreal. This attack preceded the Lachine massacre by two years.

Jean was reburied in 1866.

Jean had been the first church warden of the mission called St. Louis du Bout de l'Isle that had been established in the summer of 1685. Today outside Ste. Anne de Bellevue stands a plaque commemorating the men who had been killed in that raid in 1687.
