    • - BOUCHER DE GRANDPRE, LAMBERT, officer and town major of Trois-Rivieres, where he had been baptized on 21 Nov. 1656 and where he was buried on 4 April 1699. The son of Pierre Boucher and Jeanne Crevier, born 12 Aug. 1656, Boucher de Grandpre took up a military career. In 1689 he was an ensign in Guillaume de Lorimier’s company; the following year he took part in the defence of Quebec and for his conduct received, on 16 March 1691, royal confirmation of his ensign’s rank. First Brisay de Denonville and then Frontenac Buade praised him, and the latter granted him (1691) the rank of lieutenant on half pay, which the king confirmed on 1 March 1693. The previous year, on 7 April 1692, Louis XIV had appointed him major of the town of Trois-Rivieres. Owner since 1681 of part of the Ile Saint Joseph, Lambert Boucher acquired part of the Grosbois fief from his father, on 2 July 1692, although he had no time to undertake its settlement. Indeed he died prematurely on 3 April 1699 and was buried at Trois Rivieres the next day. He was survived by his wife, Marie-Marguerite Blason de Vauvril, whom he had married at Quebec on 13 Aug. 1693, and two children.
