About Pierre Gadois Pierre and his sister Roberte came to New France in 1636 with their parents, who were recruited by Robert Giffard. After a stay in the Québec City region, Pierre moved to Montréal with his parents about 1647 and became the first altar boy in Montréal, according to Marguerite Bourgeoys. His father is known as the first habitant of Montréal, since he received the first land grant from Governor Maisonneuve in 1648. Pierre probably learned the trade of gunsmith from Jean Tavernier dit La Forest et La Lochetière and may in turn have taught his brother Jean-Baptiste the trade.
