biographical name Sieur d' 1661-1706 Pierre Le Moyne French-Canadian explorer & founder of Louisiana

Britannica Concise

French-Canadian colonist and explorer. Son of a Montreal fur trader, he led raids on English fur-trading posts on Hudson Bay. He commanded expeditions against British settlements that by 1697 had expanded the area controlled by New France. He was sent south to fortify the Mississippi River delta and secure claims by R. La Salle. The settlement he founded on Biloxi Bay (1699) and forts he built below present-day New Orleans (1700) and on the Mobile River (1702) led to the later colonization of Louisiana.
