Dedicated Web Site:Puramore - The Lute of Pythagoras

Etienne Truteau (1641 - 1712), primogenitor of Trudeaus of North America, disembarked from the St Andre sailing ship that anchored off the shoreline of Quebec City, Quebec sometime during 1659. A carpenter by trade, he's listed alone with no family members accompanying him on the ship's passenger manifest. The ship transported him and a score of other French immigrants, mainly tradesmen, from France to assist in the build out of New France settlements, such as Montreal. They also served to help defend the Quebec City settlement from being overrun by hostile Iroquois tribesmen soon after their arrival.

Both Garry and the late former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau descent directly from Etienne.

In 1803, noted French economist and author Pierre Samuel du Pont de Nemours, Éleuthère Irénée du Pont's father, acted as President Thomas Jefferson's principal negotiator during the final stage of the Louisianna Purchase. In fact, it was Pierre who suggested the transaction to Thomas in the first place. Above all others, the deal may have been Thomas's finest contribution to American history.

After the consummation of the deal, our cousin Don Zenon Trudeau served as the first lieutenant governor of the American territory. A Revolutionary War commander, he played a particularly fascinating, yet largely unsung role in American post-Revolutionary War history, particularly with regard to his personal involvement with the Louisiana Purchase.
