About Philippe Mius

Philippe Mius d'Entremont was born in Normandy, France in 1609. In 1651, he met the Governor Charles de la Tour, who brought Philippe, his wife Madeleine and their daughter Marguerite to Acadia. On July 17, 1653, Charles de la Tour granted the Barony of Pombcoup to Philippe Mius d'Entremont and Pierre Ferrand, and named them Barons. Pierre Ferrand is believed to have remained at Port Royal. Philippe and Madeleine raised four more children, Jacques, Abraham, Philippe and Madeleine. The Baron was forced from his barony following an attack by a band of Dutchmen in 1675. In 1670, Philippe was appointed the King's Attorney General in Acadia. That is why in 1678, we find him with his family at Port-Royal. In 1688, Philippe Mius d'Entremont retired to Grand-Pré, where he died in 1699. Meanwhile, Jacques, eldest son of Baron Philippe Mius d'Entremont, took over the Barony. Those exiled from Pombcoup (today Pubnico) during the Deportations of 1756 and 1758 returned 11 years later in1767 to resettle the village. Pubnico is thus recognized as being the oldest Acadian village still inhabited by descendants of its founding families.

Philippe Mius d'Entremont of Cherbourg, Normandy, came to Acadia in 1651 as a lieutenant of Charles La Tour. Philippe was 50, married to Madeleine Hélie, and the father of a daughter, when he was named La Tour's adjutant. In 1653, during La Tour's second tenure as governor of the colony, he awarded the trusty D'Entremont the seigneury of Pobomcoup, now Pubnico, near Cap-Sable, where Philippe and Madeleine settled for most of their time in Acadia; Philippe thus became sieur d'Entremont, baron de Pobomcoup, lieutenant-major et commandant des troupes. In 1670, at age 69, upon the restoration of the colony to the French, Philippe became the King's attorney in Acadia. He served in this capacity until 1688, when old age and infirmity (he was 87!) compelled him to relinquish the post. He lived for a time at Minas and died c1700 at age 99, "with all his teeth."

Philippe MIUS d'ENTREMONT's grandfat her would seem to be Nicolas MIUS, a German who interpreted for Gaspard de COLIGNY, with who m he was massacred in 1572 during the St. Bartholomew Day's Massacre. One of his sons would h ave been adopted by Jacqueline d'ENTREMONT, widow of COLIGNY, whose name he would have adde d to his own, to make MIUS D'ENTREMONT. Philippe, born in 1609, would be the son of this adop ted son.

PARENTS: ACADIAN-FRENCH-CANADIAN@rootsweb.com. Posting forwarded from Jud Taylor in Oct 2008. French Huguenot, Gaspard De COLIGNY, Admiral of the French Army, b. 16 Feb, 1519, d. 24 Aug , 1572, France. Gaspard and his 2nd wife, Jacqueline Montbel 'ENTREMONT, b. abt 1540, d. betw een 1592-1634, had a daughter, Beatrix De COLIGNY, b. abt 1572. After the St. Bartholomew's D ay Massacre which took Gaspard's life, Jacqueline was imprisoned while still pregnant with Be atrix. Her mother died but Beatrix was taken and raised in a Catholic orphanage. I have her d . between 1613-1684. Beatrix m. (btw 1606-1638), Baron De MEVILLON, b. abt 1570.

Their dau. was Marguerite Muis-D'ENTREMONT, b . abt 1649 in Cherbourg, Fr., d. 1714, at The Mines, St. Charles Parish, Acadia. [However, P auline d'Entremont responded saying: "As far as I know there are no proven record regarding t he parents of Phillip with Beatrix. Only speculations." !FAMILY-ROYALTY: Clarence J. d'Entremont, "Communication," to the WALPOLE TIMES; 1925. The Ho use of d'ENTREMONT was one of the most ancient and illustrious houses of Savoy and France, or iginating in the Valley d'Entremont, located in the Savoyan Alps. Rudulf, Lord d'Entremont an d Montbel (born about 990-died 1040) was qualified Lord of the above territories in 1020. Oth er illustrious ancestors include the noble blood of the Pacheocos of Spain, one of the famil y being a commander in the army of Julius Caesar. Also descended from Gaspard de Coligny, Adm iral of France, Gouvenor of Paris, leader of the Huguenot party in the 16th century, who wa s the first victim of the St. Barthelemy massacre on the morning of 24 Aug 1572.

Born in 1601, Philippe arrrived from La Rochelle , France to Acadia in 1651, "en qualité de major-general" of Charles de Latour, who concede d him the seigneurie of Pobomcoup (Pubnico) at Cape Sable, where he settled.

Own entry on p. 1593 (Cap-de-Sable), contradicts, says born in 1609. Named Philippe MIUS , sieur d'ENTREMONT, seigneur de POBOMCOUP. Says originally from Normandy, but did arrive fro m La Rochelle, France. He arrived from France in the company of his wife and the oldest of th eir children. Gives date of seigneurie at Pobomcoup as 1653, where he settled. He was procure r for the King at Port Royal.

!IMMIGRATION: Came to Acadia with Charles de LA TOUR, who was named Governor a second time i n 1651 (first was in 1631), and came back to Acadia from France with Philippe, who was to b e his Major.

!RESIDENCES: He was to be the founder of Pubnico [before the Expulsion, Cape Sable]. "In 1653 , Charles de LA TOUR gave him the choice to settle wherever he would like. He chose what wa s then known to the Indians as Pobomcoup, meaning 'a place where holes have been made throug h the ice to fish.' Charles de LA TOUR erected the place into a barony, the first ever consti tuted in Acadia, and the second in all Canada. He gave to Philippe the title of Baron. The ce nter of the barony was located on the east side of the harbor, not far from its head. It wa s in this same year, 1653, that Philippe came to live here, with his wife, Madeleine HELIE, a nd their daughter Marguerite, who was born in France and was to become the wife of Pierre MEL ANSON [MELANCON], the founder of Grand-Pré."

The feudal castle was built near the entry to the na tural harbour of Pubnico, on the east side. D'ENTREMONT played an important part in the colony's history both because of what he did as a n administrator and because he was one of the rare Acadian seigneurs to concern himself wit h cultivation and with clearing land. He attracted to his estate several indentured workers a nd a few families from Port-Royal. 4.Title: Dictionnaire Généalogique des Familles Acadiennes Author: Stephen A.
