Behind digitized silhouettes we guess singers, dressed in black, lined up in two rows of five stories that make up the imposing tower. When the Director "Dominique Tille" raises his arms and the singers emit the first note in unison, it's a powerful wave sweeping the field Beaulieu.

More than 36,000 people cheered the "Wall of Sound" presented this weekend in the gardens of the Palais de Beaulieu in Lausanne Switzerland Le Comptoir. The show allied multimedia choral and pyrotechnics.
At a height of 18.5 meters and a width of 26 meters, the facility had five floors of which were distributed 200 singers and 40 musicians. It was also used as a projection screen for archive images.

The concept of the show was conceived in Quebec in 2009. It was first organized in Europe by its creator Olivier Dufour.

Derrière des silhouettes numérisées on devine des chanteurs, tout de noir vêtus, alignés en deux rangs sur les cinq étages que compte l’imposant échafaudage. Lorsque le directeur "Dominique Tille" lève les bras et que les choristes émettent la première note à l’unisson, c’est une onde puissante qui balaie le terrain de Beaulieu.

Plus de 36'000 personnes ont applaudi le «Mur du Son» présenté ce week-end dans les jardins du Palais de Beaulieu, durant le Comptoir suisse de Lausanne. Le spectacle alliait multimédia, chant choral et pyrotechnie.
D'une hauteur de 18,5 mètres et d'une largeur de 26 mètres, l'installation comptait cinq étages sur lesquels étaient répartis 200 choristes et 40 musiciens. Elle servait aussi d'écran de projection pour des images d'archive.

Meixiu Liang=What she is called by others in the gang.
    Nickname: Mei

-ex. Mélanie Beaulieu-Birthname [[only her boss and higher ups know this]] This is a name is wanted by the Green Tigers for blackmailing money off her father.
-ex. Lily Reiner- It used to be her alias until Vance died. It is what is used on many official documents.
-Mélanie Sheridan-What her actual name should be by marriage to Gabriel. Only Gabriel[and family, family friends etc] would know her by this. Her brother does also, but he is unable to place a face with it.
-&& she was called ‘mon papillon’/my butterfly by Alain [her first ‘love’/French tutor]:butterfly:
This girl…she goes through as many names as her clients do first aid kits.

Age: 33
Gender: Female
Gang status:President [Permission given by the lovely Kimichii]
She owns an underground BDSM Club—The 8th Circle[so it's really her gang status too...] which is located on the borders of the purple territory [it provides a 'safe' getaway if she finds herself in a pickle during her wanderings]
The place which has many dominants, dominatrixes and submissives to feed anyone’s fetish.
[it runs on the money her husband gives her as well as 40% of her profits]
It’s main rule:No sex with customers during work hours, it’s not a brothel.
From time to time, she will choose to include/indulge herself in the activities there.

Height: 173 cm but she wears 6 inch heels so 188.4cm[[omg…she’s a giantTT^TT—but what can you say…she loves being on top;D//shot]]

:bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack:Personal information::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack:

There are three personalities you will commonly see with Meixiu[in order of commonness]:

~La Domme~
Proud | Wild | Teasing | Dominant
    Mei, as her job description suggests, has a very dominant personality and seems to have a fondness for both male and females. The woman often emits her dominance through actions rather than words[raising her voice is something that she is uncomfortable with]She can only get turned on if she inflicts pain upon others and gains some adrenaline rush after it [being a sadist]. Mei is a woman that dislikes seeing herself under someone, making her a woman with a wild, fiery personality that is difficult to tame that often enjoys teasing people and is quite playful[she loves irritating and mindfucking]. When family isn’t involved, she can be quite fearless -though she is wanted by the Green Tigers, she sees no restrictions in places that she can go. When with clients, she will put on a mask and do everything that will satisfy their twisted fetishes with ease[there are some that she will have no trouble doing]. Now with age, she has managed to control her cravings and restrict it to consensual people, unlike when she was younger. She has her many mood swings due to many things that can range from a problem at the club, recalling an unpleasant memory or even if her coffee isn’t up to her preference. If in an unpleasant mood, her clients are often having to be sent to hospital [with satisfied grins on their faces]

~La mère~
Caring | Motherly | Protective
    However, when out of the Dominatrix phase, she can be quite motherly. Being old[er], she takes on a maternal role of a mother hen, not having children herself due to her job and being unable to. She finds happiness in spoiling people, protecting them, looking after them. It was something she had rarely had as a child. She personally takes care of her employees talking to them, and even giving the massages. It is rare for her to voice it out verbally, it is often shown by her actions. She holds no strong hatred to the rival gang unless one of her own is harmed and there is also no discrimination to the uncoloured. They are as welcome to her club as anyone else. However, due to the gang needing money…the colourless are often charged more than the normal rate. This, she does with reluctance but her gang always comes first.

~La Fille~
Guilty | Religious | Switch [in certain cases] | Chaste
    Every human would feel guilt after killing at least that was after she had met Vance. Though she may almost seem to kill mercilessly, when alone, she releases her pent up guilt. Even after her client’s, when her pleasure dissipates, she will feel bad after and decide to drown it in a glass of wine. When she was younger and during her early adult years, she seemed to constantly be on & off with her guilt. One period, she would do terrible things then sooner or later, she will be consumed by guilt and the cycle continued to repeat with the ‘terrible things’ being an outcome of her guilt as it kept her mind busy. However, now you could say she has matured from that confusing stage. She can be quite religious sometimes[save the drugs and alcohol] always believing herself to already be set for Hell[not that it bothers her really--she did name her club after a circle of Hell]. She often sends a prayer every time she has killed someone as well as closing their eyelids out of respect. You could say that it’s her way of relieving her guilt of ending a life. She even attends church every now and then [and attempts to dress smart] If ever falling in love, her Switch personality will come out as it had for her previous love and gone will be her spiky exterior of a Dominatrix. She will never ever admit her feelings though, as she has too much pride. Strangely, she will never be the one to make the first move. This is also the one that holds Alain's words dear to her. Due to that, Mei has remained chaste for 13 years and still counting.[It's not really believable--due to her being in the seedy business as well as the jokes she likes to pull and as much as she denies it--it's true...I pinky swear to it]

She also enjoys living a decadent lifestyle, dressing up in silks and having the habit of lavishly over-decorating her club [to many people’s horror].

Positive personality traits:
-Can stay calm in most situations
-She is far from shy

Negative personality traits:
-Untamemable/wild personality [except for her boss-and that’s only just—and other moments] & she is a very proud woman and this may often be seen as rude by others.
-Her vengeance twists her into a very ugly person.
-Impulsive [and it is worsened by her volatile moods]
-Fearless[the danger gives her some form of thrill]
-She’s not fully honest with people.
-She’s a sadist [meaning she gains pleasure from inflicting pain as well as it being the only way she'll get turned on] and it is often a form of comfort to her as it has been for most of her life.

:bulletblack: the ability to break many grown people
:bulletblack: Running in heels-kicking, skipping, hopping included
:bulletblack: Speaking French.
:bulletblack: She has strength in her leg muscles which is good for running and close combat.
:bulletblack: Shooting/hitting moving targets from long distances with great precision and accuracy with ranged weapons/projectiles. However, when it comes to strength…it’s another matter.
:bulletblack: Drinking games [[she has a very high tolerance for alcohol]]
:bulletblack: Giving food to stray cats in the back alley of her club.
:bulletblack:…she can lick her elbows? is ambidextrous

:bulletwhite: Yoga [it helps with her flexibility & relieves stress form rowdy customers]
:bulletwhite: Being a masseuse[she takes care of her employees]
:bulletwhite: Eating French cuisine [she adores French food] –only if her cooking was just as good
:bulletwhite: Target Practice. [she still keeps working in order to improve herself to what is expected of her]
:bulletwhite: Dancing [but probably very rusty, seeing as it was ~18 years ago]
:bulletwhite: Using a whip. Varying the way she can choose whether she would want to bruise or break the skin.
:bulletwhite: Cosplay. Girl loves her cosplay.

-Her love for dominance & her ‘wildness’ makes it common for her to twist herself around rules set. This often makes her appear rude when with higher-ups.
-Her close-combat skills are lacking in arm strength. Compared to others who had been in the ‘gang-life’ the same amount of years, she is seen to be quite inexperienced—having not been brought up knowing combat and having only starting the hard-core training in her late twenties. [However, her accuracy is perfect when it comes to ranged weapons and she can still hit hard when it comes to corporeal punishment]
-She is very impulsive when it comes to anyone in her ‘family’ getting harmed as well as her urges.
-Many rumours have occurred, either including her old high-class heritage or the fact that she was wanted by the Green tigers and thus joined the Purple Lions etc. Her reasons for joining to many may have seemed impure/selfish.
-Good-looking intimidating Men with many tattoos [& a sadistic streak]—it brings back memories of the man who broke her when she was 18.
-People’s tears. [they just get to her as much as she would like to ignore them—at least if it isn’t consensual]

:bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack:Background information::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack:


Mother: Jiao Liang| Chinese | Deceased [but Mei doesn’t know this]| Death: Stress Cardiomyopathy | Born in X-city | ex. Non-coloured
Born in X-city, she fell in love with an older foreigner at a tender age as he came to see her dance one day. Though he had countless affairs, she stayed loyal to him and gave him children. He was the knight in shining armour to send colour to her dull world.
She was a Non-coloured until she married. After marriage, she decided to become an author due to her husband finding it unsafe for her to be wandering the city.

Father: Josce Beaulieu | French | Deceased | Death: Execution| Brought up in France before moving to England| ex. Green Tiger
He had the same good-looks and charisma that have supported him most of his life as a politician. He is a man who enjoys living in his luxury[a trait he shares with his daughter]-one of the reasons why he chose to move to this ‘paradise city’- spending it in many affairs but he held most of his love for Jiao Liang, the brazen lovestruck teenager who confessed to him. He was a high-ranking subordinate of the Green Tigers due to his success as a politician. Though the Green Tigers treated politicians as their piggy banks, Josce held no dislike towards them. He saw them as ‘the way forwards’ unlike the Purple Lions which he saw as ‘inexperienced and unfit to rule X-city’.

Brother [unknown to Mei]: Adrien Beaulieu | 19 | Green Tigers
He inherited his father’s blonde hair and his mother’s brown eyes. He was born slightly after the period when Mei left the house. Unlike Mei, Adrien had spent most of his time with his father, learning whilst he watched. When he was 4, his father was executed and his mother died soon after.
Due to his young age, he was adopted into another family that supported the Green Tigers. He was brought up knowing that he had a sister who had been the main cause for both his parents’ deaths. His vengeance is disadvantaged as he only knows her as Mélanie Beaulieu/Sheridan and only has old photo documents of her [of when she was a chubby little kid].


Brother of ‘Lily Reiner’ [not by blood but by name]: Vance Reiner | Deceased | ex. Purple Lion Streetfighter | Death: Stabbed
Described in history.

Vance’s girlfriend: Elise Taylor | 25 | Non-coloured Prostitute in a Green brothel
After Vance’s death, Mei had taken this girl under her protection. This brown haired, green eyed girl is, you could probably say, the closest person to Mei and probably a bit more~but the girl's clearly hands off. If wanting a 'day off' whilst visiting the girl, Mei would often wear the disguise of a non-coloured businesswoman.

Mystery Man: ??? | ? | Gang-member | Sadist
Mei met this man at the age of 18. He is/was the only man who ever broke her, she became his submissive for a year and a half before he left. She was left pregnant with his child and was forced to abort it…as well as that she was left barren and left with the memories of tattoos. He is her second love.[sort of] More explained in history.

Husband: Gabriel/ Gabe Sheridan| 36 | English | Unknown, last seen enjoying himself in Hawaii
He is the son of Josce’s close friend who is also a politician overseas in England. Mei and Gabe are still married[in a very open marriage—from both parties]. Gabe is following in his father’s footsteps as a politician and he helps fund his wife’s club in return for inside information about X-city[seeing as the outside still portrays it as a paradise]. Like Meixiu, Gabriel doesn’t take their marriage seriously & now they're sort of phone/webcam buddies/partners in crime.

:bulletblack: (0-5 years):

Curiosity killed the Cat

She was officially born, in X-city, as Mélanie Beaulieu but her mother gave her a Chinese name: Meixiu that wasn’t down on paper. As soon as she was born, Mélanie was married, married to Gabriel Sheridan who was only 4 years old at that time…and in another country at that.
Born into a rich household, a girl could have everything…that was except for company.
Her mother only saw her to home-school her the basics before she could have a proper debut into education. Her mother fawned over her, played with her. However that was until her father came back. In her mother’s life, her father was always first.
Her father rarely visited her, only during her birthdays did he. It was only short before he was once more consumed in his work.
The young girl grew up lonely; she had no one to talk to…even her fabled fiancé. Even young, she had already grown a dislike for the Green Tigers for taking her father away from her.
Though she had rarely seen her father, when she came of age to differ human from animal, she noticed the many women that followed her father up to his chambers. ‘Playmates’, her mother told her with a small hesitant smile. The small girl’s curiosity took over. Probably she could have playmates too? Her isolated life had made it just sound more appealing.

Nearer, she edged towards the door and pushed it open, only to see an act that was burned in her mind.

The woman looked so happy.

Mélanie crawled towards the bed and tugged the blanket that covered her father’s back.

“Can I play too?”

:bulletblack: (5-10 years):

Her father never gave her anything for her birthdays, until her sixth one.

No one knew that it was an offering of guilt for allowing his daughter to witness such a thing.

He gave her Alain Lévesque-the 20 year old man to teach her subjects, mainly French, from a very young age under her father’s commands.

Upon the birthday he met her, he gave her a small puppy which she soon named JoJo. Immediately, she didn’t see him as just a tutor, he was a friend.
When teaching, he allowed her to play with his long hair, even braid it. He also spent time with her outside lessons, especially outside in the garden gazebo watching as she sang to the flowers in French. Mélanie’s French flourished as every day, she looked forward to his lessons with enthusiasm. It came to the point when her French was more fluent than her English in only the short span of a few months.

Age 7: Though her relationship with her father was anything close to a father and daughter’s, it was only politeness that she would give him a present. Despite her reluctance, Alain had convinced her along with his help in picking one out as well as him using the family card to pay for it.

The little girl was examining many of the men’s jewellery that lay, snug in velvet cushions, behind the glass counter, with little interest…until the front door was kicked open.

It was a robbery…in broad daylight. What would have just been an innocent day of shopping, turned out to be a day where two people were shot, one dead as well as the robbers successfully escaping before the police came. The girl was left distraught after witnessing, filled with confusion.

Her cheek was pressed against his chest, tears soaking his white shirt grey.

“Wh-Why , why was he allowed to go?” She spluttered out, her words weren’t about the school nor the authorities. She was trembling as she recalled the words that was hammered into her head during those many Sunday mornings spent in Church, ‘good people shall be rewarded’.

Alain’s hand paused stroking her hair. “What if he had a family, a family to feed? Good people also do bad things, mon papillon.” His tone held a hint of sadness to them as her arms tightened around him. She was soon lulled to sleep by his hand on her head.

‘Good people also do bad things.’

Little did she know how much was behind those words.

:bulletblack: (10-15 year):
There was a day of the year that the girl dreaded, and it wasn’t a trip to the dentist. It was the day where her father held a party for his close colleagues who brought their families along with them. One close friend, brought their son, Lucas.

He was the type who was spoilt rotten by both his parents as well as school. He was blessed with good looks, a good body…and a rotten personality. He seemed to have great amusement in bullying the podgy little girl known as Mélanie. She hated it most when he pulled on her pigtails as if they were handlebars on a bike. Alain was always requested to join the adults, it was the only time when Mélanie had felt alone and helpless.

However, when she was 11, someone came to her rescue:

…her puppy, Jojo.

The small scrap of fur bit the boy upon hearing its owner’s sobs. However, it wasn’t such a happy ending. Upon hearing that Lucas was bitten by the dog, there was an outrage from her father’s associate. He demanded to have the dog put down, as it was too ‘wild’ to be allowed to live around the home.
Lucas, taking chance in the moment bawled his eyes out, sobbing to his father about how the owner should be the one to do it, Mélanie, as it was partially her fault that the dog was so ‘untrained’.

Placing a gun in the young girl’s hand, her father told her to lest the family be shamed in front of the many there as well as sued.

Tears came to Mélanie’s eyes as she turned towards the puppy that was happily wagging its tail. It was so innocent, it only protected her. She was close to throwing the gun down and running away…but run away to where? She was but an 11 year old girl…
She took a shakey breath and loaded the gun, Jojo’s head turned to her, deep brown eyes sparkling.
‘Good people do bad things…’ the girl had repeated in her head, She was good right…she was doing it for the family, for her father. The girl continue to fog her mind up with excuses, avoiding the fact that Jojo was innocent.

Her finger pulled the trigger.

Jojo dropped dead.

2 years passed. What was once a cheerful little girl was now a ball-ful of nerves and hormones. The guilt only heightened her tantrums, her mood swings. She took out her stress on everyone about everything, everything apart from Alain. During all this turmoil, he was her anchor.

It came to one night, when Alain was tucking the girl to sleep whilst she was asking about why her father was allowed so many ‘playmates’, with a hint of jealousy.

Alain chuckled, “You should be with the one person you love,” his eyes softened ever so slightly upon saying these words, “And you, mon papillon, have your husband overseas,” he pressed a finger to her lips, preventing any further argument.

The black-haired girl managed to pull it away with a hand, a scowl on her face, “But what if he’s really ugly?”

Again, the Frenchman chuckled. However, when he turned the girl still held tightly to his finger.

“I-I love you…Mons--Alain.”

“But mon papillon, I’m over twice your age,” Alain shook his head, smiling.

“I don’t care. A-Alain, stay with me tonight?”

Alain had spent the night with her, though not in the way she was asking for…but she was still satisfied nonetheless.

However, the next day…Alain was gone, as was the family’s money in the bank.

It took a mere few days for the Green tigers to find the Frenchman. Nothing could be hidden from the people who ruled X-city, especially when it was [indirectly] their money that was stolen.
Alain was brought, beaten and bruised, no longer holding that clean appearance that he had when he had first approached Mélanie. However, his eyes were still the same kind ones, even if touched by tears as he looked to her with a look that told her he was sorry, even when her father’s bullet was put through his head.
Her father had to keep up appearances in front of his superiors, yet Mélanie didn’t know that. She took it as that her father didn’t care for her, that he was just one of them, that he only listened to them. The shot of the gun only brought her down the tragic memory lane of a few years ago, when she was the one to fire the bullet.

Words were soon carried round the household. Alain had a family, apparently, a wife even. They needed money and there was news of a politician seeking a tutor for his daughter, a rich politician. There was news of the Green tigers having hunted down his family and killed them. They were shot in cold blood.

Though he had used her, Mélanie didn’t hate Alain.

‘Good people also do bad things …’

The words rung out hollowly in her mind.


Mélanie’s moods worsened even more, into violent fits. It came to the point when she was to spend her time out of her room until it was all repaired. She was bruised all over from when she had thrown her body into various furniture and walls, and her face and arms full of cuts when she had shattered windows and mirrors.

One night, she was sat downstairs, in front of the fire. It was an attempt from her parents to calm her, believing that Alain’s death was the sole reason to her violent outbursts, that he had angered her, that the room that he had last spent in with her was the thing that brought back memories.

It wasn’t.

They had sent a maid to console her…like how Alain used to.

She wasn’t Alain. And the fact that her parents would simply think that he could be easily replaced as well as the maid thinking she had the gall to take Alain’s job.
Mélanie was lost in her anger, her irritation, her grief. She soon found herself wielding a hot fireplace poker against the maid. Each strike vented out her negative feelings. Every beg for mercy or cry to stop from the maid had sent an adrenaline rush through Mélanie’s veins. No, she would no longer bow down to her father as she did when Jojo died, she was in charge. The maid’s gasps of pain struck a chord within Mélanie as she was reminded back to that lusty scene she had witnessed when she was little. That only heightened her surge of hormones as it weaved with the adrenaline.

In the year since Alain died, never did she feel so…good.

No one could explain the sudden disappearance of the maid after that day, and no one could explain the lessening of Mélanie’s tantrums either.

However one day, Mélanie was caught by her mother, caught with an unconscious stable boy in the stables.

Immediately, the 15 year old girl was sent to a shrink but that had proved unsuccessful. The family, though not quite religious believed in there only being two things that could sort out their daughter’s ‘problems’: God and discipline—so they sent her off to a private Catholic school on the other side of the city.

’There’s nothing wrong with me!”

“There is Mélanie, you’re just 15…” Her mother’s eyes remained fixated on the scene outside the window, unable to look at her daughter.

Oblivious to her mother’s pained words, Mélanie took it as her mother being disgraced, digusted with her own daughter.
Her fingers pulled open the door lock, and she pushed the car door open.

“Mélanie! What are you-“

“I’m not crazy! You’re the one who’s crazy ’ma mére’ letting Josce fuck with whoever he wants in front of you. You should be the one to go, not me!”
Sending one last glare to her stunned mother, Mélanie threw herself out of the car, onto the pavement of X-city.

:bulletblack: (15-20 years):
The only way she could survive, was to sell herself. She was unsure as to what she was saving up for…an apartment perhaps, though many of the landlords shut their doors to her due to her being at such a young age.

Being only 15, she serviced as a dancer in a brothel. Though so young, they still hired her, she was unfamiliar with the typical wages so the brothel manager was able to trick her into believing that her meagre pay was enough. Mélanie was naive, inexperienced with the city-life. No longer was the girl the chubby little child, her constant exercise [and excessive makeup] had transformed her into something different.

Upon reaching 18, she was finally at the ripe age where she could start earning more money, to finally buy an apartment and no longer have to spend her nights sleeping in the ones provided by the brothel.
And it was just her luck. Virgins sold for the highest prices. She was sold to a man thrice her age.
Her first time was unpleasant, and it didn’t improve. She felt no pleasure as the men satisfied their own needs in such a monotonous fashion. Every night, it pained her as she recalled Alain's words about sleeping with the one person you love.

There were rumours of a surfacing gang, the Purple lions to oppose the greens…but the treatments of the uncoloureds such as herself, didn't improve.

One day, a man came to the brothel…a new customer…who soon became Mélanie’s second love…her infatuation.[[I say love…but it was really just a purely physical relationship…and the fact that it was just some unrequited infatuation from her behalf]]

Though he had pleasant looks, he held an intimidating aura around him, one that frightened most of the other prostitutes…but not Mélanie. He was different from the others. She held an interest in him as he had for her…but his for different reasons.

He, too, was a sadist, and was aware of this girl’s history back at home…gossip always did spread fast.
And what better way to torture a sadist, than having them go on their knees?

And thus began the two’s strange relationship. At first, she disliked him…hated him even but she wasn’t allowed to refuse, he was a customer after all and paid the manager handsomely.
Moments with this man were dangerously addictive; he had shattered her pride countless times before allowing her time to build it back to only shatter it once more. She was excited by the sight of her bruises, of her own blood but it was the pain she dreaded.
He had stretched her limits, challenged her. He held a possessive hold over her, only he could be her customer.
She had lived those two years as a submissive under him and had grown to believe that she had loved him, that their relationship extended more than a D/s, that he too felt the same.
She was naive.
As she turned 20, he left.
She was left with not even a name…just the vague fact image of many tattoos under the dim lighting…
and his child.

Mélanie was forced to abort the child, and not by the way that included a consumption of drugs…it was something that an uncoloured prostitute like her would be unable to afford.
She ended up with many bruises on her stomach, and she wouldn’t stop bleeding for a day. The woman mentally pulled herself out of prostitution, unable to do it anymore with the guilt she had felt. She had killed the only link she had to that man…After that day, she was left barren.

She tried finding other jobs around the city but with her lack of official documents, previous job, she wasn’t as readily hired compared to others who applied. She soon came to the option of starting her own business…a club in fact.

But first she needed money.

She knew exactly where to get it.

Her hatred for her father still remained, even after all those years…this action, she believed, would be the perfect punishment she could deal onto her father. Though she had rarely seen him as a child, she still was aware as to where he picked up his ‘playmates’ and what they wore—whilst their clothes were still on anyways.

Spending the amount of money that she had originally saved up for an apartment, she bought herself expensive clothing and makeup. Normally, it would have been counted as treating herself but this was instead tools, tools for her planned revenge. Knowing her father’s tastes, she easily enticed him especially with the fact that he didn’t have to spend a dime on her…even on the hotel room after.

That night, Mélanie committed a sin that she would have later believed to ‘seal her fate in Hell’.

The morning came and she was waiting for him, not having slept a night due to her burning excitement. She watched him as he downed the last bitter remnants of coffee.

He smiled at her yet it brought no warmth to her heart…he hadn’t even smiled at her when she was young. Was she so worthless compared to a one night stand.

She placed an sd card daintily on the tabletop, hungrily watching the stumble in his expression: confusion to shock to his politician’s poker face. She had wanted to drag out conversation before showing him but it was by reaction to the sudden surge of irritation upon seeing him smile.

He then chuckled, “I could get you arrested.”

It was this time, Mélanie smiled, a cold smile. “I am your daughter, Mélanie.” She answered him in fluent French.

There, she had the satisfaction of watching his façade shatter as did the mug that slipped from his fingertips. There, she saw fear, pain and disgust.

M-Mélanie? You must be out of your mind, why are you-

All for the sake of money, mon père…” She smiled, “Cash would be nice.

That day, money had disappeared from Josce Beaulieu’s account, and the next day his daughter was found dead at her apartment, apparently overwhelmed by the guilt of her act that she killed herself---the investigators only had a briefly written note and a body, face too shattered on the pavement.

Josce was soon interrogated. He had given away his money, the Tiger’s money and a staggering amount at that. Even though a successful politician, Jin gave Josce no mercy…to the possessive boss, a loss couldn’t be ignored. Finally two words were uttered.

‘M-My daughter.’

From then, Josce faced his imminent execution under Jin’s hand.

No one knew this though, all the media said was that it was a car accident involving some reckless joyrider.

Mélanie was still alive, having thrown an unfortunate victim killed by streetfighter from her apartment. However, it would only guarantee her a brief time out as the Tigers would pull an autopsy on the body. She knew how fast they had hunted…they had done it with Alain.

Wanting to grab her last shreds of money from the brothel, she stumbled to a halt as she turned the street corner.

The brothel was up in flames.

The Green Tigers knew who did it….they were hunting her.

And they would give her no mercy.

:bulletblack: (20-27 years):
She fled.
And what was the safest place to flee to? Their rival gang.

The Purple Lions.

She had expected them to reject her completely, she was suspiciously without any identity and was out of breath. However, they seemed to accept her readily [due to the small numbers]…it almost felt nice…that someone wanted her…that is if it wasn’t for the fact that she was to be ‘branded’ with the gang’s tattoo. The woman only scowled sourly as they inked her, with a slouched back.

At least this was better than torture.

She explained most of the story, missing out the part about the stolen money with the blackmail and instead replaced it with the fact that she had threatened an important member of the other gang. Though she was now a purple lion, she wasn’t so ready to trust them nor did she share the fact that that politician was in fact her father. She also kept her lips sealed upon the matter of the staggering amount of money she had hidden inside her backpack.

However, she was soon forced to tell the truth to the leader, to Chrome. Though she had had many answers prepared in case any interrogations would happen…She blurted out the real truth of her story to the man she had just met. There was something about him, something that seemed to cause her façade to falter.

He was truly a lion.

But even if he was a king of the jungle, she wasn’t one to stray from her initial path.

”Allow me to keep the money, and I’ll eventually make it worth your while.”

The deal was soon struck, her position in the gang wavered on the vague success of her club when she came to having it built.

The gang was low on money so a surgery on some ‘newcomer’ would obviously cause some controversy. Thus, they opted to having her hair bleached a startling brassy ginger as well as new documents and brown contacts.

No longer did she go by the name of Mélanie Beaulieu…

She was now Lily Reiner, Streetfighter of the Purple Lions.

But she wasn’t as welcomed as she had hoped. Many rumours had spread round, speaking of her selfish reasons to joining as her possible ties with that politician. Many found it hard to believe that a mere insult to a green tiger pawn would spark such danger to cause her to flee to them. However, as questions were fired, Lily brushed it off with a remark or even ignored them entirely. Many replied with isolating her, avoiding her. Streetfighters often went round in groups, two at the least…but no one went with her.

Lily built up her wall, closed herself off from everyone else. No, she didn’t need their help let alone want it. The girl’s pride only grew. Each of her irritations, guilt[which were immense…seeing as she was the cause of a whole brothel massacre], and the feelings of loneliness, she brought it out on the people she came across the street, non-coloured, green tigers…even a few Purple lions…she gave no care, all she did was drown out her feelings as she did when she was 13. Her bandaged hands were soaked red and caked with dirt, and many bruises always marred her face. Many a time she was at a disadvantage compared to the gang-members, not experienced with combat. One time, she had narrowly escaped from a Green tiger with a knife wound to her back as well as nearly revealing her identity as the wanted ‘Mélanie Beaulieu’. It was too close.

It came to the point when the girl needed to be controlled. She was a risk to the gang, she could be easily captured by the rival gang and tortured for information, and she had ‘brawled’ with many of her fellow gang members, some she had managed to severely harm.

But every member was precious to the Purple lions, they wouldn’t rid her so easily.

After that certain incident where her identity nearly slipped, they put her under another streetfighter’s care. Vance Reiner, a ‘cover-up’ brother to Lily Reiner. He was to further solidify her identity. However, instead of beginning with a lecture on rules that she would have to strictly follow, he gave her his life story. Normally, she would have fled upon hearing those words or yawned and rudely fallen asleep, but she didn’t.

He weaved his tale of how he had fallen in love with a prostitute, and how he had originally joined the gang with the intention to gain enough money to buy her out until the brothel she had worked at was taken under the control of the Green Tigers. However the gang wasn’t as rich as he had expected, but he still gains protection from them as well as for his love. He aims to become a future battler so he could train himself stronger.

She found herself captivated as he told her how much killing he had done and becoming a battler would only make it worse, but he wanted to do it, to do it for him and his girlfriend, Elise. Lily was reminded of Alain, of how his story played close to Vance. They both did it for love, they sacrificed most of their morals in order for the people they cherished.

As time went by, Lily once more had an anchor. She no longer had to drown her sorrows through hurting others, all she had to do was let Vance take her out for a drink, it felt as if he was truly her brother. They laughed together, he showed her the city that she had been closed off to, even to see his girlfriend. She had soon matured, gained a conscience. Even as she killed people, she sent a small prayer along with them, sometimes even closed their eyelids. It had been an example from Vance—respecting the dead…even enemies. The man calmed her down, every time it had felt like she was going to snap off into another guilt-ridden tantrum, he shoved a mug of beer into her face.

But things can’t always have been that perfect.

At 27, she had heard the news that Vance was stabbed after a brawl with a green tiger after a visit to Elise.

:bulletblack: (27-33 years):

Lily didn’t break, not this time. She had promised Vance that she wouldn’t.

Instead, she became a battler, the idea of long strenuous training as well as being paid to fight, was appealing. She could gain strength in order to protect Vance’s girlfriend as he was hoping to.

At 27, Lily also decided to start her club, the BDSM club, The 8th circle to be exact. It had been 7 years since the incident so the waters were calm enough for her to bring out the club’s debut as well as to start working on that deal that she had made with Chrome. Due to its large initial funding, it was quite successful but it was still not enough to bring out her part of the deal. It also became her part-time occupation, working as a Dominatrix—a way to gain pleasure from consensuals.

She had even asked to change her name once more, every time she heard the name, Reiner…her heart was pained as her memories traced itself back to Vance.

She was rejected and was punished with receiving a lecture on how she was taking Chrome’s kindness for granted. She had yet to still be trusted. Though she wasn’t allowed a change in name, Lily changed her appearance once more, or more like returned back to her normal black haired and blue eyed image.


Lily had overestimated her strength as a Battler. Even after having three months of training, she was nothing compared to her opponents. She had lost her first game within five minutes.

Already, the future was looking bleak but she didn’t give up. Even though great pressure lay on her shoulders and once more she returned to the time when fellow gang members would give her withering resenting looks, she still remained strong and determined.

She was going to win this.

She lost her second match the week after. However, no longer would people have taken it as a ‘newcomer’s loss’, she had no excuse as she had in her first game. Many demanded a punishment, to open her eyes. They all saw her as a proud stuck up person just in it for the money, proud she was but she wasn’t stuck up nor did they know about the amount of money at her fingertips already.
She was punished by the gang's 'The Henker'. Luckily for her, death wasn’t her punishment. The Purple Lions needed every member possible. In its place, she received twenty-five lashes and for once in her life, her head was hung low in the humiliation.

From that day, she spent tireless nights in training, losing the third match would certainly bring a punishment that would make the lashes seem like child’s play. Though she had spent long in practice, her strength was little in comparison to others. Thus, she started to work on her agility, making use of her lithe form. In the previous matches, she was easily thrown or knocked back, so Lily started to work on her balance. From then on, she had never worn flat shoes, torturing her feet in high heels until they were no longer a bother to her.
The countless hours in training meant no time would be spent at the club. This only made her adrenaline soar higher as well as her growing frustrations when she had entered the match.

In that third match, her opponent had nearly died.

Most battles after that seemed to be narrowly successful, there were a few that she had lost but she had soon made up the following week.
At 32, Lily had gained the gang enough money and chose to quit being a battler. She then began to devote herself to her club, helping it thrive and nurture it out from the time where her Battler days had starved it of her visits.

By 33, she had kept to her part of the deal to Chrome, supplying the gang with a share of her profits, soon exceeding the amount of money she had blackmailed. She was soon promoted to President seeing as she had no other wish than to manage her club.

Upon receiving the title, she had finally gained the amount of trust to change her name. For five years, she was Lily Reiner, constantly reminded of her dead brother. Lily Reiner, the girl who was isolated from many gang members.
No longer did she hold such a childish grudge against her mother, this would have been some form of honouring her even after the spiteful words Lily had parted with.
Choosing a name that her mother had given her when she was born-

She became Meixiu Liang.

Gang history: She joined at the age of 20. Due to her taking a lot of money from the Green Tigers through her father’s blackmail, Mei/Mélanie was a wanted person. Thus the only way to survive was to seek help…and the only place that the Green Tigers would be unable to touch…The Purple Lions. She joined, safe under their protection as well as them helping her to build up a new identity. It was somehow a selfish choice as she only joined for her own safety, not to aid the Purple Lions in their cause. However, now she has grown to see them as family and fights, still not for their cause, but so they won’t have to get hurt.
Age 20-Streetfighter
Age 27-Battler
Age 32-Chrome gave her a year to fulfil the deal
Age 33-President


Weapon 1: A single tailed whip with a hard leather end coated with a thin layer of kevlar[that she keeps secured around her right leg—a Domme can’t be left without her toys;D] as well as extremely sharp nails[she is known to sometimes had bladed tips on fake nails]

-She does wear normal clothes as well but only when out in the streets/being ready for a fight.
-Her gang tattoo is located on the back of her neck[as shown] –one of the reasons being that she doesn’t want to be reminded that she belongs to someone[at least it was like that when she joined]

:bulletpurple: Sean Terrell/Sean~He crossed her at the wrong time, thus resulting in her finding the need to tease his virgin mind mercilessly. Mei only knows his name as Sean and is oblivious to his status in the gang. His irritation seemed to go after she had stolen his first kiss as did his peaceful nights' sleep. Even though she was in an unpleasant mood that time, Mei wouldn't ever say no to a bit more of fun, playing with him would also aggravate would be killing two birds with one stone.

:bulletpurple: Leo Vierra/Sean's girl/Nameless lion~Seeing Sean up against the wall with Mei had indeedly put Mei on the hit-with-a-bat-list. Mei, being a ballsy bitch, only seemed to find amusement in the girl's fiery personality and chose to ruffle the girl's feathers further. Mei doesn't know the girl's face though, seeing as they were in a dark alley that time.

:bulletgreen: Dylan Masa/Nameless tiger with the hot bod~ Distracted from her way to pay a visit to Elise, Mei couldn't help but be the kind knight to save the damsel from falling...with ulterior motives of course. The girl calling Mei 'Ma-am' had indeed given Mei the impression of the girl as being polite, innocent and naiive[as if everyone was to be trusted] and it only made Mei want to play with her further under the disguise of a Green tiger businesswoman. Upon receiving information about the girl's job being in a flower shop, Mei wouldn't mind to pay a visit sometime to feast her eyes

Seigneurie de La Prairie-de-la-Magdeleine

It is on January 15, 1635 that Sieur François de Lauzon de Lirec gets a field from "Compagnie des Cents Associés" in front notaries Huart and Muret. This domain began at the Richelieu River to the Chateauguay River, including the island of Montreal, this act is signed by Abbé Gabriel de Thubière de Lévis de Queylus (Caylus) et Ragois. Charles Huault, chevalier de Montmagny yield the land, called "Seigneurie de la Citière" to Sieur François de Lauzon de Lirec on ​​July 29, 1639 in Trois-Rivières, in the presence of Nicolas Trevet (prosecutor François de Lauzon), the Sieur Paul de Pouterel, Jean Guitet, the Sieur Jean Bourdon dit Rommainville and Guillaume Hébert

No it was not an "April Fool" ... it was April 1, 1647 that Sieur François de Lauzon de Lirec, advisor to the King of the Bordeaux parliament, conceded some of his fief to Jacques de la Ferté, abbé de la Madeleine (Paris), a member of the "Compagnie des Cents Associés", which immediately yield to Jesuits. Two leagues front four leagues deep in front of the Island of Montreal on the south side, starting from the island Sainte-Hélène continuing in the direction of the Saut Saint-Louis to fourth place beyond of a prairie of the Magdelaine. Then in 1648, the Sieur François de Lauzon de Lirec gives "Seigneurie de la Citière" to Louis de Lauson de La Citière (1630-1659).

One of the first colonization of Nouvelle-France goal has been clearly identified as the conversion of "sauvages" (indians) by, at first, the "Société de Notre-Dame de Montréal pour la conversion des Sauvages de la Nouvelle-France", and later by "Messieurs du Séminaire de Saint-Sulpice" ( [link] ). After more than a decade, finding the few results wandering mission was made. For best results, it should settle the "sauvages" near the French settlement. It is to this end that the Jesuits created the "Seigneurie de La Prairie-de-la-Magdeleine", in front to Ville-Marie, on the other side of the river.

However, due to a war with the Iroquois, Pierre Rafeix has taken possession of the Seigneurie, for the Jesuits, that July 14, 1667, the date of the opening of the parish registers of "La Nativité-de-la-Sainte-Vierge". The new Seigneurie, besides the village Kentake (La Prairie), a total of 35 fiefs. The Jesuits remain in the village where they say Mass in a poor building that serves as chapel. Then in 1668 Pierre Raffeix founds the Tonsahoten mission, that the Jesuits named as Saint-François-Xavier-des-Prés (now Caughnawaga or Kahnawake) for converted Iroquois, Oneida (one of six Iroquois nations) he brought back from the south.

It is on November 19, 1670, that the celebration of the first marriage in the parish of "La Nativité-de-la-Sainte-Vierge", that of Pierre Gagné Catherine Daubigeon. The village then has five huts in which housed twenty families from different Indian nations (Mohawk, Huron, Onondaga, Andastogués, Andastes).

The Jesuits concede to their secretary Joseph Tissot, a location of "6 perches by 1 1/2 perch" in the village on November 4, 1671. A grist mill was built on the road leading to the village Saint-Jacques River and the "censitaires" are forced to grind their grain. In 1673, the count (official) of the Seigneurie population reached 99 people, 36 single men, 15 couples and 33 children. In fact, the presence of village in seigneuries was rare in Nouvelle-France at that time.

Some "sauvages" who wished to settle in the island of Montreal, the "Messieurs de Saint-Sulpice" began the erection of a camp on the southern flank of Mont-Royal in 1676 ( [link] ). As noted Sister Marguerite Bourgeoys: "was the first of the island where "sauvages" came to be educated". In 1683, the mission already had 210 Indians in 26 homes.

As soon as Louis Tronson (1622-1700), director of the "Séminaire de Saint-Sulpice" in Paris, had learned the establishment of the mission of the Mountain, he wrote no stone unturned to first win the hearts of "sauvages" children, and open schools for them to be educated:
"M. Colbert approuve extraordinairement votre dessein pour l'établissement de petites écoles de sauvages ; il est persuadé qu'on ne saurait rien faire de plus utile. C'est une oeuvre où il faut s'appliquer tout de bon, et à quoi il faudra donner tout ce que l'état de la maison pourra permettre. Ainsi n'épargnez rien pour l'instruction de ces enfants. Vous voyez combien tout cela vous oblige à supprimer les missions du lac Ontario, que M. Colbert croit d'ailleurs être très-peu fructueuses. Je dînai chez lui il y a quelques jours, et il me dit la grâce de me bien écouter sur toutes nos affaires."
Extract from the letter of Louis Tronson to Guillaume Bailly, on April 22, 1678.
In the wake of recommendation M. Tronson, in 1683 they opened the first school of the "Seigneurie".

When the canonical erection of the parish of Saint-François-Xavier in 1692, the population of the seigneurie is 181 people. On June 7, 1697 The Jesuits concede the factory this parish some plots, on inside and outside of the fence, 450 yards to the needs of the church and cemetery, and 900 yards to the rectory and garden.

In the eighteenth century, the population of French settlers increased significantly, but remains, for reasons of safety, confined within the stockade. The 1705 years saw the erection of the first stone church. Because of its geographical position, the village of La Prairie quickly established as a place of transit required for trade between Ville-Marie and New England. After the conquest of 1759-60, many English traders came to settle there. The fence, enlarged several times, became obsolete and gradually disappears, new homes beyond the scope of this fortification.

The constant crossing of passengers and goods brought by steamboats for trade between New England and Lower Canada, enriches. These steamers appear in La Prairie in 1808. A major fire occurred in 1846, triggered by embers from the furnace of a steam locomotive belonging to the Champlain & St. Lawrence Railroad (C&SL - formed in 1832), and the construction of the Victoria Bridge (1860), bringing the railway of the same company, sounded the slow economic decline of the region in the second half of the 19th century.

The Battle of La Prairie

La Prairie is strategically located in the corridor by the Richelieu and Hudson, can be used to track intrusions carried out by the British and / or the Iroquois. This seigneurie of the Jesuits remained for a long time the most advanced position to defend Montreal against these invasions. The village is surrounded by a palisade stakes standing so that people and animals can find refuge in case of attack. After two French raids in New England, the British organized a rematch. As part of the "First Intercolonial War", August 11, 1691, about five o'clock in the morning, the village is attacked by a troop of 146 Mohawks and Wolves and 120 militiamen from Fort Orange (Albany, NY) controlled by the Dutch Major Pieter Schuyler.

From English point of view

After leaving his canoes on the river, the Dutch Major Pieter Schuyler went to La Prairie de la Magdeleine by land, reaching the fort on a rainy night, August 10. An hour before sunrise on August 11, the sentinel of the fort fired. The "Capitaine de Saint-Cirque", the old captain who was in command instead of the Governor of Montreal, Louis-Hector de Callière, the disease kept in bed in Fort Ville-Marie, made ​​a sortie. Discharge of musket mortally wounded and the sieur d’Escairac (Desquairac). The Sieur d'Hosta (Dosta) reformed captain was killed instantly.

A second contingent, commanded by Jean Bouillet de la Chassaigne (Chassagne) arrived at that moment and rushed headlong upon the men of Schuyler, who, after a vigorous resistance, withdrew in good order. Schuyler then toward the Richelieu River, where he had left his canoe but it was intercepted by the contingent sent to protect the Fort Chambly. Philippe Clément Du Vuault, sieur de Valrennes and Jean Le Ber dit Duchesne deployed their troops behind the trees and the English fought battle for an hour and a half. Schuyler and his men managed to make their way through the French ranks and achieve their canoes. As he told the provincial council in New York a few weeks later: "We resumed our way back and on the way met five elk which reinvigorated the whole company [...] In that expedition, we have lost 21 Christians, 16 Mohawk, 6 River Indians, and 25 men were wounded [...] Let us estimate have killed about 200 French and Indians."

The bravery and skill that had shown the militiamen of Fort Orange (Albany, NY) made ​​a very good impression on the Indians of the Five Nations were convinced when the English were able to fight and that they were willing to risk their lives in war.

One of the descendants of the Dutch Major Pieter Schuyler, who commanded the Anglo-Iroquois troops, William Douw Schuyler-Lighthall (1857-XXXX) immortalized the "Bataille de La Prairie" :
THAT was a brave old epoch,
Our age of chivalry,
When the Briton met the French-man
At the fight of La Prairie;
And the manhood of New England,
And the Netherlanders true
And Mohawks sworn, gave battle
To the Bourbon’s lilied blue.

That was a brave old governor
Who gathered his array,
And stood to meet, he knew not what,
On that alarming day.
Eight hundred, amid rumors vast
That filled the wild wood’s gloom,
With all New England’s flower of youth,
Fierce for New France’s doom.

And the brave old half five hundred!
Theirs should in truth be fame;
Borne down the savage Richelieu,
On what emprise they came!
Your hearts are great enough, O few:
Only your numbers fail,—
New France asks more for conquerors
All glorious though your tale.

It was a brave old battle
That surged around the fort,
When D’Hosta fell in charging,
And ’t was deadly strife and short;
When in the very quarters
They contested face and hand,
And many a goodly fellow
Crimsoned yon La Prairie sand.

And those were brave old orders
The colonel gave to meet
That forest force with trees entrenched
Opposing the retreat:
“De Calliére’s strength’s behind us,
And in front your Richelieu;
We must go straightforth at them;
There is nothing else to do.”

And then the brave old story comes,
Of Schuyler and Valrennes,
When “Fight” the British colonel called,
Encouraging his men,
“For the Protestant Religion
And the honor of our King!”—
“Sir, I am here to answer you!”
Valrennes cried, forthstepping.

Were those not brave old races?
Well, here they still abide;
And yours is one or other,
And the second’s at your side;
So when you hear your brother say,
“Some loyal deed I ’ll do,”
Like old Valrennes, be ready with
“I ’m here to answer you!”
The capitaine Saint-Cirq
Here, about the personage that our stories usually called "M. de St-Cirque", some notes a little or not known.

Jean-Louis de Jadon, écuyer, sieur de Saint-Cirque, having "served in the best regiments of France and have commanded a battalion in Sicily" came to Canada in 1685, the new Governor General, the Marquis de Denonville.

January 6, 1687, being with troops stationed in Montreal, he attended and signed on the marriage contract between Jacques Maleray, Sieur de la Molerie, lieutenant, and Françoise Picoté de Belestre (Basset). In the following June he took part in the expedition against the Iroquois, and then returns to live in Montreal, as it appears in an act of Adhemar of 1688.

On September 1, 1689, Mr. Jadon St. Cirque consented a 631 livres obligation to Abraham Bouat, the hotel's trendy Montreal at that time, for his expenditure mouth him and his vallet (Adhemar) .

That same year, he seems to have been to Niagara with a party.

In August 1691, during the attack of Laprairie by Major Schuyler, M. de Jadon de Saint-Cirque took charge of the defense of the fort, replacing Mr. de Callière, governor of Montreal was sick.

The unfortunate captain was wounded in the thigh by a bullet that cut her vena cava and he died on the way to the fort.

Were killed with him, Dosta, a reformed captain and Domergue, a reformed lieutenant and 14 other soldiers or inhabitants (Tanguay, I, 553).

This is certainly among the "14 other soldiers or inhabitants" that were unfortunate that the five Montrealer that the Villemarie register have been reported killed in Laprairie on August 11, 1691 and whose names are:

Nicolas Barbier, aged 33, son of Gilbert Barbier, one of the Montreal pioneers. Nicolas was part of this group of men who tried to found a community of teaching Priest in Montreal in 1686.

Jean Barbeau dit Boisdoré

It is also known under the name "François Jean Barbeau dit Boisdoré", "Jean Baptiste Barbeau dit Boisdoré", "François-Jean Boisdoré dit Barbeau", "Jean Barbot", "Jean Barbeau" and "Jean Barbot dit Boisdoré".

John was born about 1664 (based on his age at death) of the union of the bourgeois Pierre Barbeau and Madeleine Babin. The "Programme de Recherche en Démographie Historique" (PRDH) says he was born in the parish of Saint-Vivien in Pons, as mentioned in his marriage in 1686. But according to the origin file, the original parish would rather Saint-Martin, also located in Pons, France. It is usually named "Jean" in most documents mentioning, but at the wedding of his daughter Marie appears as "François" and "Jean-Baptiste" on other occasions.

Jean arrived in Nouvelle-France with the "Troupes de la Marine" as a soldier in the company of Capitaine Saint-Cirq. One of his comrades was Pierre Fontaine dit Bienvenue (1668-1738) that will leave its mark in history as one of the state military who helped Marie-Madeleine Jarret de Verchères, mother of "Madeleine de Verchère" ( [link] - [link] ) to defend Vercheres against an attack by the Iroquois October 22, 1690. In April 1692, six months before the exploits of the young girl, Pierre became uncle in law of "Madeleine de Verchère".

After signing a marriage contract before the notary Michel Moreau dated November 15, 1686, Jean Barbeau dit Boisdoré marries Marie-Françoise De Noyon ("Marie Denoyan", "Marie De Noyon", "Marie Denoyon", 1671-1750) on November 18 at "Sainte Famille de Boucherville" ( [link] ) church. The couple settled to "Boucherville" to found a family where 16 children were born: Geneviève (1689-1773), Jean-Baptiste (1691-XXXX), Gabriel (1694-1751), Marie (1695-1743), Madeleine (1697-1733), François (1698-XXX), Joseph (1700-XXX), Jean-Baptiste (1701-1701), Marguerite (1702-1769), Pierre (1704-1725), Louis (1705-1706), Charlotte (1706-1706), Marie-Charlotte (1707-1744), Marie-Thérèse (1709-1747), Louise (1710-1711) and Jean (1713-1730).

The couple had no children and Joseph died in 1749 in St. Louis Plantation near "La Mobille" Louisiane.

The documentation concerning the first settlers in Hancock County in the eighteenth century is rare. Much of the records were destroyed in the fire that destroyed the courthouse in Gainesville on March 31, 1853. But Spanish records, dating from 1788, mention the names of two prominent French citizens living in Mobile: Charles Marie de La Lande and Joseph Barbant [Barbeau] of Boisdore. The two men owned land adjacent to that of Jean Claude Favre to Mobile along the river "East Pearl". The families Favres, Rouceve and Barbeau dit Boisdoré to be among the first non-natives settlers of the "East Pearl" River area.

Marie Jeanne Deslandes

Charles Rocheron was born July 4, 1673 in Quebec. On 1698, in "Kaskaskia" in Upper Louisiane, Charles married Henriette Colon, Métis daughter of Jean Baptiste Colon Dit Laviolette (1665-1725) and Catherine Exipakinoea (1675-1707) of Kaskaskia, Illinois' Country. The couple had nine children: Charles (1715-1747), Pierre (1717-1771), Marie Henriette (1719-XXXX), Marie Joseph (1722-1752), Louis Augustin (1724-1779), Marie Therese (1725-1732), Jean (1728-1763), Marguerite (1731-1786), Oliver (1732-1732).

Charles became a trapper and was associated with Henri de Tonti, an Italian soldier, explorer, and fur trader in the service of France, accompanying him on many of his expeditions. In 1701, the two friends came to settle in Louisiane, near "La Mobille" in the colony of Fort-Louis-De-La-Mobille. In 1704, Henri, who contracted yellow fever, died there September 4, 1704. In 1706, with Pierre LeBoeuf, Gilbert Dardenne and Claude Parent, Rocheron left Fort-Louis-De-La-Mobille to settle at the mouth of the river. Prosperity gained by these four men had led to the relocation in 1711, the activities center of "La Mobille". Some time later, Charles moved to the mouth of the "Dog River" where he established a plantation (St Louis Plantation), which included most of what is now known as the island of Hollinger. Charles Rochon died on March 21, 1733 in this property remained in the hands of his children until 1848.

Marie Jeanne Deslandes (May 8, 1732-circa 1798), daughter of François Deslandes and Magdeleine Boyer, married to Charles Rochon, son of Charles Rocheron (July 4, 1673 - March 21, 1733) and Henriette Colon (November 27, 1698 - February 28, 1733), was born in "Dog River" from "La Mobille" on January 11, 1745 "Notre Dame Du Fort Conde De La Mobille" Louisiane. The couple had two children before the untimely death of Charles in 1647: Issac (1746-XXXX) and Charles (1747-1747).

Joseph Barbeau ???

Joseph Estienne (Joseph-Étienne) was born February 23, 1727 in "Notre-Dame-Du Fort Conde De La Mobille", Louisiane, son of "Joseph Barbeau or Boisdore" and "Marie Louise Brette". He married Marie Jeanne Deslandes on January 3, 1749 at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception From "La Mobille" Louisiane. He died in March 1765.

From this point, the documentation becomes difficult to obtain. Several documents were lost during the conquest by the English, fire in buildings sheltering them, ships sunk by the French enemies' (English, Spanish), etc ... We loses track of this family for the next fifty years. It was not until 1807 that found a Joseph Barbeau said Boisdoré La Prairie-de-la-Magdeleine.

House Joseph-Barbeau-Dit-Boisdoré

The origins of the concession of the lot 135 of the official cadastre of the village of La Prairie back to February 4, 1794 when the Jesuits in grants rights Louis Bauzet (1763-1798). After his death, his widow, Geneviève Renaud dit Lachapelle (1768-XXXX), remarried Joseph Nolin in 1799. On November 7, 1801, not having need of it, she sells the land to Joseph Amable Guerin dit Lafontaine (1761-1832). On March 8, 1803 Joseph Amable exchange the land with Joseph Decombre Porcheron (1770-1846) who, March 19, 1807 sells physician-surgeon Robert Sheldon undertaking to build a wooden house, but just one month later , sharing everything with Joseph Barbeau dit Boisdoré. Joseph takes the work of doctor Sheldon and is finishing the house with stones.

A plaque affixed to the front of the house. The plaque reads:
La concession du terrain remonte à 1794 au moment de l'expansion du faubourg. La maison fut construite vers 1807 par Joseph Barbeau dit Boisdoré. Lors de l'incendie de 1846, les flammes l'ont lourdement endommagée, et on a reconstruit les murs-pignons en brique. La maison a momentanément servi d'auberge après sa reconstruction.

Initiative de la Fondation Histoire et Patrimoine de La Prairie, avril 2004.
It can be seen on the facade of the building, large "S" wrought iron. These hooks black iron shaped "S", called "essepris" or "hook brace" help keep the straight walls, especially when the roof is curved, because the walls tend to take the same form as the roof , that is to say to diverge towards the base.

Seigneurie de La Prairie-de-la-Magdeleine

C'est le 15 janvier 1635 que le Sieur François de Lauzon de Lirec obtient un domaine de la "Compagnie des Cents Associés" par devant les notaires Huart et Muret. Ce domaine commençait à la rivière Richelieu, jusqu'à la rivière Chateauguay, y compris l'ile de Montréal, cet acte est signé par Abbé Gabriel de Thubière de Lévis de Queylus (Caylus) et Ragois. Charles Huault, chevalier de Montmagny cède ces terres, nommées "Seigneurie de la Citière" au Sieur François de Lauzon de Lirec le le 29 juillet 1639 aux Trois-Rivières, en présence de Nicolas Trevet (procureur de François de Lauzon), le Sieur Paul de Pouterel, Jean Guitet, le Sieur Jean Bourdon dit Rommainville et Guillaume Hébert.

Non ce n'était pas un "poisson d'avril"... c'était bien le 1 avril 1647 que le Sieur François de Lauzon de Lirec, conseiller du Roi au parlement de Bordeaux, concèdait une partie de son fief à Jacques de La Ferté, abbé de la Madeleine (Paris), un des membres de la "Compagnie des Cents Associés", qui la cède immédiatement aux jésuites. Deux lieues de front sur quatre lieues de profondeur en face de l'île de Montréal du côté sud, à commencer depuis l'ile Sainte-Hélène en continuant dans la direction du Saut Saint-Louis jusqu'à un quart de lieu au delà d'une prairie de la Magdelaine. Puis en 1648, le Sieur François de Lauzon de Lirec cède la "seigneurie de La Citière" à Louis de Lauson de La Citière (1630-1659).

L'un des but premiers de la colonisation de la Nouvelle-France a été clairement identifié comme étant la conversion des "sauvages" par, dans un premier temps, la "Société de Notre-Dame de Montréal pour la conversion des Sauvages de la Nouvelle-France", pui plus tard par les "Messieurs du Séminaire de Saint-Sulpice" ( [link] ). Après plus d'une décénnie, on fit le constat du peu de résultats des missions errantes. Pour de meilleurs résultats, il fallait sédentariser les "sauvages" et les établir près des Français. C'est à cette fin que les Jésuites créèrent la Seigneurie de La Prairie-de-la-Magdeleine, face à Ville-Marie, de l'autre côté du fleuve.

Cependant, à cause d'une guerre avec les Iroquois, Pierre Rafeix n'a pris possession de la Seigneurie, pour les Jésuites, que le 14 juillet 1667, date de l'ouverture des registres de la paroisse de "La Nativité-de-la-Sainte-Vierge". La nouvelle seigneurie, outre le village de Kentake (La Prairie), compte au total 35 côtes. Les Jésuites demeurent dans le village où ils disent la messe dans une construction de fortune qui tient lieu de chapelle. Puis en 1668 Pierre Raffeix y fonde la mission Tonsahoten, que les jésuites ont baptisé sous le nom Saint-François-Xavier-des-Prés (aujourd'hui Caughnawaga ou Kahnawake) pour des iroquois convertis, les Onneiouts (Oneidas, l'une des six nations iroquoises) qu'il a ramenés du sud.

C'est le 19 novembre 1670 qu'a lieu la Célébration du premier mariage dans la paroisse de "La Nativité-de-la-Sainte-Vierge", celui de Pierre Gagné à Catherine Daubigeon. Le village compte alors cinq cabanes dans lesquelles logent une vingtaine de familles provenant de différentes nations (Agniers, Hurons, Onnontagués, Andastogués, Andastes) amérindiennes.

Les jésuites concèdent, à leur secrétaire Joseph Tissot, un emplacement de "6 perches par 1 1/2 perche", dans le village, le 4 novembre 1671. Un moulin à grain est construit sur le chemin qui conduit du village à la rivière Saint-Jacques, et les "censitaires" sont obligés d'y faire moudre leurs grains. En 1673, le dénombrement de la population (officielle) de la Seigneurie atteint 99 habitants, soit 36 hommes célibataires, 15 couples et 33 enfants. Au fait, la présence de village dans les seigneuries était rare en Nouvelle-France à cette époque.

Certains "sauvages" ayant manifesté le désir de s'installer dans l'Île de Montréal, les "Messieurs de Saint-Sulpice" commencèrent l'érection d'un campement sur le flanc sud du Mont-Royal en 1676 ( [link] ). Comme le faisait remarquer Soeur Marguerite Bourgeoys : "ce fut le premier lieu de cette île, où les sauvages vinrent pour être instruits". En 1683, la mission comptait déjà 210 Amérindiens répartis dans 26 habitations.

Aussi tôt que Louis Tronson (1622-1700), directeur du "Séminaire de Saint-Sulpice" de Paris, eut appris l'établissement de la mission de la Montagne, il écrivit de ne rien négliger pour gagner d'abord le coeur des enfants "sauvages", et d’ouvrir pour eux des écoles pour les y instruire :
"M. Colbert approuve extraordinairement votre dessein pour l'établissement de petites écoles de sauvages ; il est persuadé qu'on ne saurait rien faire de plus utile. C'est une oeuvre où il faut s'appliquer tout de bon, et à quoi il faudra donner tout ce que l'état de la maison pourra permettre. Ainsi n'épargnez rien pour l'instruction de ces enfants. Vous voyez combien tout cela vous oblige à supprimer les missions du lac Ontario, que M. Colbert croit d'ailleurs être très-peu fructueuses. Je dînai chez lui il y a quelques jours, et il me dit la grâce de me bien écouter sur toutes nos affaires."
Extrait de la lettre de Louis Tronson à Guillaume Bailly, du 22 avril 1678.
Dans la foulée des recommandation de M. Tronson, au cours de l'année 1683 on ouvre la première école de la "Seigneurie".

Lors de l'érection canonique de la paroisse Saint-François-Xavier, en 1692, la population de la seigneurie est de 181 habitants. Le 7 juin 1697 Les jésuites concèdent à la Fabrique de cette paroisse des emplacements, de parts et d'autres de la palissade, 450 toises pour les besoins de l'Église et du cimetière, et 900 toises pour le presbytère et son jardin.

Au XVIIIe siècle, la population de colons français s’accroît de façon importante mais reste, pour des raisons de sécurité, confinée à l’intérieur de la palissade. L’année 1705 voit l'érection de la première église de pierre. À cause de sa position géographique, le village de La Prairie s’impose vite comme un lieu de transit obligé pour les échanges commerciaux entre Ville-Marie et la Nouvelle-Angleterre. Après la Conquête de 1759-60, de nombreux commerçants anglais viennent s’y installer. La palissade, agrandie à quelques reprises, est devenue désuète et disparaît peu à peu, les nouvelles maisons débordent le périmètre de cette fortification.

Le passage constant de voyageurs et de marchandises amenés par les bateaux à vapeur, pour le commerce entre la Nouvelle-Angleterre et le Bas-Canada, contribue à enrichir La Prairie. Ces bateaux à vapeur apparaissent à La Prairie vers 1808. Un incendie majeur, survenue en 1846, déclenché par des tisons provenant du fourneau d'une locomotive à vapeur appartenant à la Champlain & St. Lawrence Railroad (C&SL - constituée en 1832), et la construction du Pont Victoria (1860), amenant le chemin de fer de cette même compagnie, sonneront le lent déclin économique de la région dans la seconde moitié du 19e siècle.

La bataille de La Prairie

La Prairie occupe une position stratégique dans le corridor qui, par le Richelieu et l'Hudson, peut servir de voie aux intrusions menés par les Anglais et/ou les Iroquois. Cette seigneurie des Jésuites demeure pendant longtemps le poste le plus avancé pour défendre Montréal contre ces invasions. Le village est entouré d'une palissade en pieux debout afin que les habitants et leurs bêtes puissent y trouver refuge en cas d'attaque. Après deux raids français en Nouvelle-Angleterre, les Anglais organisent une revanche. Dans le cadre de la "Première Guerre intercoloniale", le 11 août 1691, vers cinq heures du matin, le village est attaqués par une troupe composée 146 Agniers et Loups et 120 hommes de la milice de Fort Orange (Albany, New York), commandés par le major hollandais Pieter Schuyler. En quelques heures, les troupes françaises sont anéanties et les pertes sont très élevées, 14 habitants de la seigneurie sont tués. L'envahisseur qui sort vainqueur de cet engagement, se replie vers Saint-Jean, afin de rejoindre ses embarcations et, sans doute s'élancer ver Ville-Marie. Au moment où se déroulait cette attaque du fort de La Prairie, un détachement de 160 à 200 hommes sous le commandement de Philippe Clément Du Vuault, sieur de Valrennes était en route pour le fort de Chambly. En entendant les coups de feu, les soldats français firent demi-tour et, à mi-chemin entre les deux forts, ils aperçurent les troupes du major Schuyler. Ils prirent rapidement position sur un coteau afin de bloquer la route vers Saint-Jean et de forcer les anglais d'engager le combat qui fut gagné par les hommes de Valrennes. Le curé Geoffroy "certifie avoir enterré Messieurs St Cirq capitaine en pied, Dosta capitaine réformé et Domergue lieutenant réformé tués dans le combat qui s'est donné ici ledit jour avec 14 soldats et habitants tués aussi sur place qu'on a pas reconnu".

Du point de vue des anglais

Après avoir laissé ses canots sur le bord de la rivière, le major hollandais Pieter Schuyler s’était rendu à La Prairie de la Magdeleine par voie de terre, atteignant le fort par une nuit pluvieuse, le 10 août. Une heure avant le lever du soleil du 11 août, la sentinelle du fort fit feu. Le Capitaine de Saint-Cirque, ce vieux capitaine qui assumait le commandement en remplacement du gouverneur de Montréal, Louis-Hector de Callière, que la maladie retenait au lit dans le fort de Ville-Marie, fit une sortie. Une décharge de mousquet le blessa mortellement ainsi que le sieur d’Escairac (Desquairac). Le sieur d'Hosta (Dosta), capitaine réformé, fut tué sur le coup.

Un deuxième contingent, commandé par Jean Bouillet de la Chassaigne (Chassagne) arriva à ce moment et se lança tête baissée sur les hommes de Schuyler qui, après une résistance vigoureuse, se retira en bon ordre. Schuyler se dirigea alors vers la rivière Richelieu où il avait laissé ses canots mais il fut intercepté par le contingent envoyé pour protéger le fort Chambly. Philippe Clément Du Vuault, sieur de Valrennes et Jean Le Ber dit Duchesne déployèrent leurs troupes derrière les arbres et livrèrent combat aux Anglais durant une heure et demie. Schuyler et ses hommes réussirent à se frayer un passage à travers les rangs français et à atteindre ses canots. Comme il le déclara au conseil provincial à New York quelques semaines plus tard : "Nous reprîmes le chemin du retour et en cours de route rencontrâmes 5 élans ce qui revigora toute la compagnie [...] Dans l’expédition, nous avons perdu 21 Chrétiens, 16 Agniers, 6 Indiens de la Rivière, et 25 hommes furent blessés [...] Estimons avoir tué environ 200 Français et Indiens".

La bravoure et la compétence dont avaient fait preuve les hommes de la milice de Fort Orange (Albany, New York) firent très bonne impression sur les Indiens des Cinq-Nations qui furent convaincus dès lors que les Anglais étaient capables de se battre et qu’ils étaient prêts à risquer leur vie à la guerre.

Un des descendants du major hollandais Pieter Schuyler, qui commanda les troupes Anglo-Iroquoise, William Douw Schuyler-Lighthall (1857-XXXX) immortalisa la "Bataille de La Prairie" :
THAT was a brave old epoch,
Our age of chivalry,
When the Briton met the French-man
At the fight of La Prairie;
And the manhood of New England,
And the Netherlanders true
And Mohawks sworn, gave battle
To the Bourbon’s lilied blue.

That was a brave old governor
Who gathered his array,
And stood to meet, he knew not what,
On that alarming day.
Eight hundred, amid rumors vast
That filled the wild wood’s gloom,
With all New England’s flower of youth,
Fierce for New France’s doom.

And the brave old half five hundred!
Theirs should in truth be fame;
Borne down the savage Richelieu,
On what emprise they came!
Your hearts are great enough, O few:
Only your numbers fail,—
New France asks more for conquerors
All glorious though your tale.

It was a brave old battle
That surged around the fort,
When D’Hosta fell in charging,
And ’t was deadly strife and short;
When in the very quarters
They contested face and hand,
And many a goodly fellow
Crimsoned yon La Prairie sand.

And those were brave old orders
The colonel gave to meet
That forest force with trees entrenched
Opposing the retreat:
“De Calliére’s strength’s behind us,
And in front your Richelieu;
We must go straightforth at them;
There is nothing else to do.”

And then the brave old story comes,
Of Schuyler and Valrennes,
When “Fight” the British colonel called,
Encouraging his men,
“For the Protestant Religion
And the honor of our King!”—
“Sir, I am here to answer you!”
Valrennes cried, forthstepping.

Were those not brave old races?
Well, here they still abide;
And yours is one or other,
And the second’s at your side;
So when you hear your brother say,
“Some loyal deed I ’ll do,”
Like old Valrennes, be ready with
“I ’m here to answer you!”
Le capitaine Saint-Cirq
Voici, sur le personnage que nos histoires nomment généralement "M. de St-Cirque", quelques notes peu ou point connues.

Jean-Louis de Jadon, écuyer, sieur de Saint-Cirque, après avoir "servi dans les meilleurs régiments de France et avoir commandé un bataillon en Sicile" vint au Canada en 1685, avec le nouveau gouverneur général, M. le marquis de Denonville.

Le 6 janvier 1687, étant avec les troupes cantonnées à Montréal, il assiste et signe au contrat de mariage entre Jacques Maleray, sieur de la Molerie, lieutenant, et Françoise Picoté de Belestre (Basset). Au mois de juin suivant, il prend part à l'expédition contre les Iroquois (B. R. H., VII, 156), puis revient résider à Montréal, car il figure dans un acte d'Adhémar de 1688.

Le premier septembre 1689, M. Jadon de Saint-Cirque consent une obligation de 631 livres à Abraham Bouat, l'hôtelier à la mode de Montréal, à cette époque, pour sa dépense de bouche à luy et à son vallet" (Adhémar).

Cette même année, il paraît avoir été à Niagara avec un parti.

Au mois d'août 1691, lors de l'attaque de Laprairie par le major Schuyler, M. de Jadon de Saint-Cirque prit la direction de la défense du fort en remplacement de M. de Callières, gouverneur de Montréal qui était malade.

L'infortuné capitaine fut blessé à la cuisse d'une balle qui lui coupa la veine cave et il mourut en rentrant au fort.

Avec lui furent tués Dosta, capitaine réformé, Domergue, lieutenant réforme et 14 autres soldats ou habitants (Tanguay, I, 553).

C'est certainement parmi ces "14 soldats ou habitants" malheureux qu'étaient les cinq montréalais que le registre de Villemarie rapporte avoir été tués à Laprairie le 11 août 1691 et dont voici les noms :

Nicolas Barbier, âgé de 33 ans, fils de Gilbert Barbier, l'un des pionniers de Montréal. Nicolas avait fait partie de ce groupe d'hommes qui tentèrent de fonder une communauté de Frères instituteurs à Montréal, en 1686.

Louis Ducharme, âgé de 31 ans, époux de Marie Anne Mallet.

François Cibardin, âgé de 31 ans, époux de Louise de Guître. Cordonnier de métier, il avait acheté deux mois plus tôt, en compagnie de Baillet, la tannerie de MM. Dédieu et Mouchère, à Villemarie (Adhémar, 15 juin 1691).

Jean-Vincent Le Ber Duchesne, âgé de 24 ans, fils de Jacques Le Ber, marchand.

Pierre Pinguet de Montigny, âgé de 33 ans, époux de Catherine Testard de Folleville.

Pierre Cabazié, âgé de 19 ans, fils du notaire et sergent royal, Pierre Cabazié.

Trompé par la similitude des noms, Mgr Tanguay, vol. I, 97, a fait mourir le père en 1691, mais au vol. II, 513, l'auteur donne la vraie date du décès qui est 1715.

Il est probable que dans le registre de Laprairie de 1691 dont le double n'existe pas aux archives de Montréal, on trouverait la liste des autres soldats ou habitants qui succombèrent dans ce combat.

Jean Barbeau dit Boisdoré

Il est aussi connu sous le nom de "François Jean Barbeau dit Boisdoré", "Jean Baptiste Barbeau dit Boisdoré", "François-Jean Boisdoré dit Barbeau", "Jean Barbot", "Jean Barbeau" et "Jean Barbot dit Boisdoré".

Jean est né vers 1664 (basé sur son age à son décès) de l'union du bourgeois Pierre Barbeau et de Madeleine Babin. Le "Programme de Recherche en Démographie Historique" (PRDH) affirme qu'il est originaire de la paroisse Saint-Vivien à Pons, comme le mentionne son acte de mariage en 1686. Mais selon le Fichier Origine, sa paroisse d'origine serait plutôt Saint-Martin, aussi située à Pons en France. Il est généralement prénommé "Jean" dans la plupart des documents le mentionnant, mais lors du mariage de sa fille Marie il apparaît comme "François" et "Jean-Baptiste" à d'autres occasions.

Jean est arrivée en Nouvelle-France avec les troupes de la Marine en tant que soldat de la compagnie de Capitaine Saint-Cirq. Un de ses compagnons d'armes est Pierre Fontaine dit Bienvenue (1668-1738) qui laissera sa trace dans l'histoire comme état l'un des militaire qui aida Marie-Madeleine Jarret de Verchères, mère de "Madeleine de Verchère" ( [link] - [link] ) à défendre Verchères contre une attaque des Iroquois le le 22 octobre 1690. En avril 1692, six mois avant les exploits de la jeune fille, Pierre devint l'oncle par alliance de "Madeleine de Verchère".

Après avoir signé un contrat de mariage devant le notaire Michel Moreau en date du 15 novembre 1686, Jean Barbeau dit Boisdoré épouse Marie-Françoise De Noyon ("Marie Denoyan", "Marie De Noyon", "Marie Denoyon", 1671-1750) le 18 novembre à l'église Sainte Famille de Boucherville [link] . Le couple s'installe à "Boucherville" pour fonder un foyer où naîtront 16 enfants : Geneviève (1689-1773), Jean-Baptiste (1691-XXXX), Gabriel (1694-1751), Marie (1695-1743), Madeleine (1697-1733), François (1698-XXX), Joseph (1700-XXX), Jean-Baptiste (1701-1701), Marguerite (1702-1769), Pierre (1704-1725), Louis (1705-1706), Charlotte (1706-1706), Marie-Charlotte (1707-1744), Marie-Thérèse (1709-1747), Louise (1710-1711) et Jean (1713-1730).

Joseph Barbeau dit Boisdoré (grand-père)

Joseph est né le 20 mars 1700 à Boucherville, septième enfant de Jean Barbeau dit Boisdoré et Marie-Françoise De Noyon.

Le 6 avril 1726, Joseph se présente devant le juge de paix Louis Auguste de la Loire Flaucour et le curé Mathias de Sedan de la paroisse "Notre-Dame-Du Fort Conde De La Mobille", accompagné de Claude Parant (Parent) et son épouse Catherine Christophe comme témoins, pour certifier qu'il n'est pas déjà marié. Les deux notables lui signifient qu’ils lui font "dresser cette acte pour notre sureté". Joseph Barbo dit Boisdoré épouse Marie-Louise Bret (1700-1747), fille de Louis Bret (Brest, Brette, Brete, Le Bret, 1676-1726), maître tailleur, et Élizabeth "Isabel" Le Roy (Rouet - 1685-avant juin 1721), le 8 avril 1726 à "Notre-Dame-Du Fort Conde De La Mobille", en Louisiane (Mobile, Alabama). De cet union naquirent dix enfants (les noms sont rapportées tels qu'ils apparaissent au registre des baptêmes) :
  • Joseph Estienne (Joseph-Étienne) est né et baptisé le 23 février 1727 à "Notre-Dame-Du Fort Conde De La Mobille", Louisiane, fils de "Joseph Barbeau or Boisdore" et "Marie Louise Brette". Il a épousé Marie Jeanne Deslandes (8 mai 1732-vers 1798), fille de François Deslandes et de Magdeleine Boyer, le 3 janvier 1749 à la Cathedrale de l'Immaculée-Conception De "La Mobille", Louisiane. Il serait décédé entre 1765 et 1794.
  • Claude est né le 13 mars 1729 et baptisé le 14 mars 1729 à "Notre-Dame-Du Fort Conde De La Mobille", Louisiane, fils de "Joseph Barbeau or Boisdore" et "Louise Bret". Il est décédé le 5 mars 1746.
  • Louis est né et baptisé le 3 janvier 1731 à "Notre-Dame-Du Fort Conde De La Mobille", Louisiane, fils de "Joseph Barbeau or Boisdore" et "Louise Bret".
  • Jeanne Louise est née le 13 juin 1732 et baptisée le 15 juin 1732 à "Notre-Dame-Du Fort Conde De La Mobille", Louisiane, fille de "Joseph Barbeau or Boisdore" et "Louis Brette". Elle est décédée le 2 septembre 1732.
  • Marie Louis (Marie-Louise) est née le 7 février 1733 et baptisée le 8 février 1733 à "Notre-Dame-Du Fort Conde De La Mobille", Louisiane, fille de "Joseph Barbeau or Boisdore" et "Louize Brete".
  • Louise est né le 7 novembre 1733 et baptisé le 8 novembre 1733 à "Notre-Dame-Du Fort Conde De La Mobille", Louisiane, fille de "Joseph Barbeau or Boisdore" et "Louise Bret".
  • Marie Joseph est né le 2 décembre 1735 et baptisé le 3 décembre 1735 à "Notre-Dame-Du Fort Conde De La Mobille", Louisiane, fille de "Joseph Barbeau or Boisdore" et "Louise Bret". Elle est décédée le 4 novembre 1737.
  • Jean Claude est né et baptisé le 4 novembre 1737 à "Notre-Dame-Du Fort Conde De La Mobille", Louisiane, fils de "Joseph Barbeau or Boisdore" et "Louise Bret". il est décédé le 5 mars 1746.
  • Juan Antonio est né en 1738 à "Notre-Dame-Du Fort Conde De La Mobille", Louisiane, de "Joseph Barbeau or Boisdore" et "Louise Bret". Juan Antonio a épousé Françoise Veillon (1742-XXXX).
  • Genevieve (Geneviève) est né le 18 sptembre 1745 et baptisé le 19 sptembre 1745 à "Notre-Dame-Du Fort Conde De La Mobille", Louisiane, de "Joseph Barbeau or Boisdore" et "Louize Bret".

Dans les différents actes où est inscrit la profession de Joseph, il est mentionné qu'il est maître-tailleur comme son beau-père.

Marie-Louise Bret décède le 27 mai 1747. Joseph Barbeau dit Boisdoré épouse le 6 ou le 13 octobre 1747, en seconde noce, à "Notre-Dame-Du Fort Conde De La Mobille", Louisiane, Marguerite Colon dit Laviolette (1717-XXXX), la fille de Jean-Baptiste Colon dit Laviolette et de Marguerite Praux. Le couple n'aura aucun enfant et Joseph décède en 1749 à St Louis Plantation près de "La Mobille", Louisiane.

La documentation concernant les premiers colons à s'établir dans le comté de Hancock au XVIIIe siècle est rare. Une grande partie des registres ayant été détruit dans l'incendie qui a ravagé le palais de justice de Gainesville le 31 Mars 1853. Toutefois des registres Espagnols, datant de 1788, mentionnent les noms de deux éminents citoyens français vivant à Mobile: Charles Marie de La Lande et Joseph Barbant [Barbeau] de Boisdore. Les deux hommes possédaient des terres voisines de celle de Jean Claude Favre à Mobile le long de la rivière "East Pearl". Les familles Favres, Rouceve et Barbeau dit Boisdoré seraient parmi les premiers colons non-autochtones de la région de la rivière "East Pearl".

Marie Jeanne Deslandes

Charles Rocheron est né le 04 juillet 1673 à Québec. En 1698, à "Kaskaskia", en Haute-Louisiane, Charles a épousé Henriette Colon, la fille métisse de Jean Baptiste Colon Dit Laviolette (1665-1725) et de Catherine Exipakinoea (1675-1707) de Kaskaskia, pays des Illinois. Le couple aura neuf enfants : Charles (1715-1747), Pierre (1717-1771), Marie Henriette (1719-XXXX), Marie Joseph (1722-1752), Louis Augustin (1724-1779), Marie Therese (1725-1732), Jean (1728-1763), Marguerite (1731-1786), Oliver (1732-1732).

Charles est devenu un trappeur et était associé à Henri de Tonti, un soldat italien, explorateur, et commerçant de fourrure au service de la France, l'accompagnant dans plusieurs de ses expéditions. En 1701, les deux amis viennent s'établir en Louisiane, près de "La Mobille" dans la colonie de Fort-Louis-De-La-Mobille. En 1704, Henri, qui a contracté la fièvre jaune, y meurt le 4 septembre 1704. En 1706, avec Pierre LeBoeuf, Gilbert Dardenne et Claude Parent, Rocheron quitte Fort-Louis-De-La-Mobille pour s'installer à l'embouchure de la rivière. La prospérité acqise par ces quatres hommes avait entrainné la relocalisation, en 1711, du centre d'activités de "La Mobille". Quelques temps après, Charles déménage à l'embouchure de la "Dog River" où il établit une plantation (St Louis Plantation) qui comprenait la majorité de ce qui est aujourd'hui connu comme l'île de Hollinger. Charles Rocheron est décédé le 21 mars 1733 dans cette propriété qui est restée entre les mains de ses enfants jusqu'en 1848.

Marie Jeanne Deslandes (8 mai 1732-vers 1798), fille de François Deslandes et de Magdeleine Boyer, a épousé Charles Rochon, fils de Charles Rocheron (04 juillet 1673 - 21 mars 1733) et de Henriette Colon (27 novembre 1698 - 28 février 1733), est née à "Dog River" de "La Mobille", le 11 janvier 1745 à "Notre-Dame-Du Fort Conde De La Mobille", Louisiane. Le couple aura 2 enfants avant le décès prématuré de Charles en 1647 : Issac (1746-XXXX) et Charles (1747-1747).

Joseph Barbeau

Joseph Estienne (Joseph-Étienne) est né le 23 février 1727 à "Notre-Dame-Du Fort Conde De La Mobille", Louisiane, fils de "Joseph Barbeau or Boisdore" et "Marie Louise Brette". Il a épousé Marie Jeanne Deslandes le 3 janvier 1749 à la Cathedrale de l'Immaculée-Conception De "La Mobille", Louisiane. Il serait décédé en mars 1765.

à partir de ce point, la documentation devient difficile à obtenir. Plusieurs documents seraient disparues lors de la conquête par les Anglais, des incendies d'édifices les abritant, des navires coulées par les ennemis des Français (Anglais, Espagnols), etc... On y perd donc la trace de cette famille pour les cinquante prochaine années. Ce n'est que vers 1807 qu'on retrouve un Joseph Barbeau dit Boisdoré à La Prairie-de-la-Magdeleine.

Maison Joseph-Barbeau-Dit-Boisdoré

Les origines de la concession de ce lot 135 du cadastre officiel du village de La Prairie remontent au 4 février 1794 alors que les Jésuites en accorde les droits à Louis Bauzet (1763-1798). Après son décès, sa veuve, Geneviève Renaud dit Lachapelle (1768-XXXX), s'est remariée avec Joseph Nolin en 1799. Le le 7 novembre 1801, n'en ayant plus besoin, elle vend le terrain à Joseph Amable Guerin dit Lafontaine (1761-1832). Le 8 mars 1803 Joseph Amable échange ce terrain avec Joseph Decombre Porcheron (1770-1846) qui, le 19 mars 1807 la vend au médecin-chirurgien Robert Sheldon qui entreprend d'y construire une maison en bois, mais à peine un mois plus tard, échange le tout avec Joseph Barbeau dit Boisdoré. Joseph reprend les travaux du docteur Sheldon et fait finir la maison en pierres.

Une plaque commémorative est apposée à l'avant de cette maison. Cette plaque dit :
La concession du terrain remonte à 1794 au moment de l'expansion du faubourg. La maison fut construite vers 1807 par Joseph Barbeau dit Boisdoré. Lors de l'incendie de 1846, les flammes l'ont lourdement endommagée, et on a reconstruit les murs-pignons en brique. La maison a momentanément servi d'auberge après sa reconstruction.

On peut voir, sur la façade de cet immeuble, des grands "S" en fer forgé. Ces crochets en fer noirs en forme de «S», appelés «essepris» ou «crochet de contrevent», permettent de garder les murs droits, surtout lorsque le toit est courbé, car les murs ont tendance à prendre la même forme que le toit, c'est-à-dire à s'écarter vers la base.

George Boleyn, Viscount Rochford (c.1503[1] /c. April 1504;[2] 17 May 1536) was an English courtier and nobleman, and the brother of queen consort Anne Boleyn. This made him the brother-in-law of King Henry VIII and the maternal uncle of Queen Elizabeth I of England. A prominent figure in the politics of the early 1530s, he was convicted of incest with Anne during the period of her trial for high treason. They were both executed as a result.

George was the only surviving son of the courtier and ambassador Sir Thomas Boleyn and his wife, Lady Elizabeth Howard, daughter of the 2nd Duke of Norfolk.

Thomas and Elizabeth had a number of children, including two sons named Thomas and Henry who failed to reach adulthood. Three children survived: George, Mary and Anne. There has been much debate over the centuries as to the age of the three Boleyn siblings, but there is general agreement that George was born c.1504. This stems from a number of different sources. George Cavendish says in a poem that George was about 27 when he gained a place on the Privy Council in 1529. Cavendish gives this as a maximum age in order to make his tortuous verses more rhythmic (such as "thrice nine"). In addition to Cavendish's verses, foreign diplomats believed George was too young to be appointed as Ambassador to France in October 1529. Mary's date of birth is again generally accepted as being c.1500 but there is some disagreement as to Anne's date of birth with arguments for 1501 and others for 1507.[3] However, following the executions of Anne and George in 1536 their father wrote to Cromwell and in his letter he stated that upon his marriage his wife gave him a child every year.[4] As Thomas and Elizabeth were married between 1498 and 1499, if Thomas is to be believed this indicates that all five Boleyn children, including the two who failed to reach adulthood, were born between 1500 and 1504, and if we accept as the evidence suggests that George was born in 1504 this is persuasive evidence for suggesting he was the youngest Boleyn child. This is the current thinking of the vast majority of modern historians with only one notable exception.[5] George and his sisters were probably born in Norfolk at his family's home of Blickling Hall. However, they spent most of their childhood at another of the family's homes, Hever Castle in Kent, which became their chief residence in 1505 when Thomas inherited the property from his father.

Like his father, it was understood that George would have a career as a courtier, politician and diplomat. The monarchy was the font of all patronage and potential wealth and it was only through service to the Royal Family that a family could hope to achieve or protect their greatness and social position. With this in mind, George was introduced to Henry VIII's court at the age of ten, when he attended the Christmas festivities of 1514–15. He attended an indoor melee with his father and acted in a mummery with his father, and the likes of the much older Charles Brandon and Nicholas Carew, who would later prove to be such enemies of the little boy (Brandon sat on the jury which tried him and Carew helped coach Jane Seymour on how best to win the king's heart).[6] Thanks to his family's influence and the fact he obviously impressed Henry at an early age, he became one of the King's pageboys shortly afterwards.

Since learning was highly praised at Court and essential for a career as a diplomat, George received an excellent education, speaking fluent French together with some Italian and Latin. Although his two sisters were educated abroad (Mary from 1514 to 1519, Anne from the spring of 1513 to late 1521), George remained in England throughout his formative years. George's earliest biographer suggests that George may have spent time in France as a child when his father was on embassy from January 1519, and suggests this as a reason how George could speak such perfect French from a young age and as an explanation as to how Anne and George remained so close during their formative years.[7] However, this is pure speculation. Whatever the case, there is a long-standing tradition that George attended the University of Oxford when he was not in attendance at Court, although he does not appear in any of the university's record — a relatively frequent occurrence in the period before the English Civil War, when few of the aristocrats who attended either technically matriculated or graduated.

There is less known about George's personal life than his celebrated court career, but what is known is that he married Jane Parker sometime during 1525. They were certainly married by January 1526 because a note of that date in Wolsey's hand confirms that an extra £20 a year had been awarded to "young Boleyn for him and his wife to live on".[8]

There has always been much speculation as to whether the marriage of George and Jane was a happy one, but there is no way of knowing for certain, as the state papers are virtually silent with regard to Jane. There is no mention of the couple having any children, which as the brother-in-law and sister-in-law to the King of England, there surely would have been if such a child existed. It had been thought that George Boleyn, dean of Lichfield, may have been their son; but it is more likely that he was a distant cousin. There is no record of the couple having a child, and Jane makes no mention of a child for whom she is responsible when she wrote a begging letter to Cromwell following George's death.[9]

Whether or not the marriage of George and Jane was happy, George had a reputation as a womaniser. George Cavendish, Gentleman Usher to Cardinal Wolsey, in his poetry entitled Metrical Visions lambastes the young man for his womanising, saying:

I forced widows, maidens I did deflower.
All was one to me, I spared none at all,
My appetite was all women to devour
My study was both day and hour.
Yet in the same poem Cavendish, who was a staunch Catholic and hated the Boleyns and what they stood for, acknowledges George's good looks and intelligence, saying:

God gave me grace, dame nature did her part,
Endowed me with gifts of natural qualities:
Dame eloquence also taught me the art
In meter and verse to make pleasant ditties.[10]
Likewise Thomas Wyatt in his poetry also recognises George's "Great wit" (although wit in the 16th century could suggest that a person was witty and charming, it mainly meant intelligence, and it is George's intelligence that Cavendish and Wyatt were referring to.) Wyatt's verse with respect to George reads:

Some say, 'Rochford, haddest thou not been so proud
For thou great wit each man would thee bemoan
Since it is so, many cry aloud
it is a great loss that thou art dead and gone.[11]
Historian David Starkey recognised George's intellect when he referred to him as having "many of Anne's talents and all of her pride".[12]

For all George's good looks and talent, as can be seen from the above verse, Wyatt, who was a friend of the Boleyns', also says that George was too proud. Although Wyatt's poem is often used to suggest George was hated due to his arrogance there is nothing to support this. Despite George's pride Wyatt acknowledges that at his death many cried out loud that his death was a great loss. It may also be that the allegations of George's womanising are exaggerated, because there was no scandal surrounding the Boleyns' marriage and no other Boleyn enemy felt that George's behaviour towards women was base enough to comment on. Likewise neither Cavendish nor the Imperial Ambassador, Eustace Chapuys, who was actively looking for faults in order to demonise the Boleyns, make any mention of him being particularly arrogant. Chapuys only complaint was that George could not resist entering into Lutheran discussion whenever he was being entertained by him.[13]

One modern historian, Retha Warnicke, believes that the men accused of being Anne's lovers were chosen because of ambiguity over their sexuality. This has led to an increasingly enduring myth that the men were charged with sodomy as well as treason. In fact none of them were charged with sodomy and there were no extant rumours of homosexuality relating to any of them.[14] Warnicke's theory was put forth in her 1989 biography of Anne Boleyn, but it has been criticised by many other historians due to there being no evidence to substantiate it.[15]

However, recently Alison Weir has resurrected the theory regarding George's sexuality by using the same arguments that Warnicke used 20 years previously.[16] In addition to this Weir also suggests that by his use of the phrase forced widows, Cavendish was insinuating that George was a rapist. As with the theory of George's sexuality there is no evidence to support the notion that he was a rapist. If he had been guilty of the criminal offences of rape, buggery and/or homosexuality, and if Cavendish knew about it, then so did the rest of the court. Yet no one ever commented on George's supposed bisexuality or even hinted at it, not even enemies of the Boleyns, such as Chapuys.[original research?]

Metrical Visions are Cavendish's interpretation of George's scaffold speech when George said he was "a wretched sinner deserving of death".[17] Despite the current vogue for believing Cavendish was speaking of homosexuality, his 16th century interpretation was that George was apologising for his promiscuity, which he may or may not have been. To use Metrical Visions and George's scaffold speech as the sole pieces of evidence to support an argument for homosexual activity is problematic in that it creates a paradox. The verses in Metrical Visions are on the basis of Cavendish's interpretation of George's scaffold speech, and now, nearly five hundred years later, Warnicke and Weir re-interpret George's scaffold speech on the basis of Cavendish's metrical visions; hence the paradox

George is first mentioned as an adult in 1522 when he and his father received a joint grant of various manor houses in Kent. The grant was made in April, suggesting that George was born in April 1504 and that this grant was an 18th birthday gift.[18] He received the first grant in his sole name in 1524, when at the age of 20 he received from the King a country mansion, Grimston Manor.[19] It is supposed that this was an early wedding present made to a young man who was rapidly coming into favour. He was a firm favourite of the King and is regularly mentioned in the Privy Purse expenses as playing the King at bowls, tennis, card games and archery. He also hunted with the King and bet large sums of money with him. He won huge sums off the King but probably lost just as much, if not more. Gambling was one of the European aristocracy's favourite pastimes in the period.[20]

In 1525, George was appointed gentleman of the Privy Chamber, functioning as the male equivalent to the King of what a lady-in-waiting was to the Queen. As part of a reorganisation of the Court structure, known as the Eltham Ordinance, Cardinal Wolsey, an opponent of the Boleyns, ensured that George lost this position six months later when he halved the number of gentlemen in the Privy Chamber. Wolsey used the reorganisation to get rid of those whom he perceived as a threat, which was something of a backhanded compliment to the 21-year old Boleyn boy whose court prominence was already being acknowledged. As compensation, George was appointed Royal Cupbearer in January 1526 in addition to his award of an additional £20 a year for him and his wife to live on.[21]

Following her return to England in 1519, Mary Boleyn became Henry VIII's mistress. It is not known when that relationship started or when it ended or indeed for how long it lasted. It was certainly over by 1526 when the King's eyes turned to another Boleyn sibling, Anne, and by 1527 he was seeking to marry her. Much of George Boleyn's career was in furtherance to the King's desire for a divorce from his first wife to enable him to have Anne.

In June 1528, George contracted the disease known as sweating sickness whilst with the King and Catherine of Aragon at Waltham Abbey. In a letter to Anne, who also contracted the disease while at Hever Castle, Henry told her of her brother's illness and recovery.[22]

Later that year, George was appointed Esquire to the Body and Master of the King's Buckhounds in 1528.[23] Throughout the late 1520s grants continued to be bestowed upon him. On 15 November 1528 he became keeper of the Palace of Beaulieu and on 1 February 1529 was appointed chief steward of Beaulieu (later in October 1533 he would be granted a life interest in the Palace).[24] On 29 July 1529 he was appointed Governor of Bethlehem Hospital (Bedlam), which was a profitable sinecure.[25]

George's diplomatic career took off in late 1529 when he was knighted and regained his former position as a member of the Privy chamber. It was also in December 1529 that he was ennobled as George, Viscount Rochford, and undertook his first assignment as a diplomat to France as Ambassador. Because of his youth, (he was only 25), it is believed that Anne's influence secured him this post, although there is no evidence that he lacked the ability to undertake the role. The French ambassador, Jean du Bellay, commented that George was considerably younger than many of the other foreign diplomats and that the appointment of a boy barely out of his teens would cause amusement. But he also goes on to say that George should be shown more honour than was ordinarily necessary, and that his reception would be well weighted.[26]

Irrespective of his age, George quickly established a good relationship with the King of France and did well in his first embassy. George attended a total of six foreign embassies to France. The first was between late October 1529 and late February 1530. George attended with John Stokesley, the Dean of the Chapel Royal.[27] Their mission was to encourage the universities of France to support Henry VIII's divorce from Catherine of Aragon. The universities' response was initially negative, but George encouraged King Francis to write a strong letter in favour of the divorce, which was later used to reverse the universities' decision.[28]

The second was in March 1533 when he informed the King of France of his sister's marriage to the King of England. George was also instructed to encourage Francis into giving Henry more support, and following a lengthy debate George succeeded in obtaining a letter from Francis asking the Pope to concede to Henry's wishes.[29] Not everyone was happy with George's success. The Bishop of Rome, who had found George's youth so amusing, described him as "the most unreasonable young man who ever crossed the sea". Yet despite the criticism Du Bellay grudgingly gave praise for the respect George Boleyn inspired at the meeting and the strength with which he argued the case.[30]

George's third embassy was between May and August 1533 when he travelled to France with his Uncle the Duke of Norfolk to be present at a proposed meeting between the King of France and the Pope. It was during this mission that news reached them that the Pope had excommunicated Henry. It was George who returned to England to inform Henry of the Pope's actions.[31]

On 10 September 1533, George carried the canopy over his royal niece the Princess Elizabeth (later Queen Elizabeth 1) at her christening, along with his uncles Lord Thomas Howard and William Howard, 1st Baron Howard of Effingham as well as John Hussey, 1st Baron Hussey of Sleaford.

His fourth embassy was in April 1534 when George was again appointed to encourage the French King to give more support to Henry's cause, to pass similar legislation against the Pope as had been passed in England, and to arrange a meeting between the two Kings and Anne.[32]

In July 1534, George once again attended the French court, this time to rearrange the meeting that had been arranged between the kings due to Anne's pregnancy (she later miscarried). In George's instructions is a passage stating he is one who the King "specially loveth and trustith".[33]

George's final embassy was in May 1535 when he and his uncle were appointed by the King to negotiate a marriage contract between the King of France's third son and the baby Princess Elizabeth, George's niece.[34]

When George was not abroad, he often escorted foreign diplomats and ambassadors into the King's presence. Chapuys in particular regularly refers in his dispatches to meeting "the ladies brother". In October 1529, immediately prior to George's first embassy abroad, he was instructed to escort Chapuys on his first audience with the King. Chapuys refers to meeting "a civil gentleman named Bollen". Ironically, Chapuys had liked George, before he became aware who he was.[35]

In addition to his diplomatic career, George was an acknowledged court poet of considerable merit, and was also much admired as a talented linguist and translator. He was passionate about religious reform and translated from French into English two magnificent religious texts as presents for his sister Anne, which he dedicates "To the right honourable lady, the Lady Marchiness of Pembroke, her most loving and friendly brother sendeth greetings."[36] The translations codify the Lutheran doctrine which both Anne and George were so immersed in, and emphasise the joint commitment of both siblings to reform of the Church. When Anne was sent a religious pamphlet by Simon Fish, "A Supplication for the Beggars", it was George, according to Fish's wife, who encouraged Anne to show it to the King.[37] In matters of religion Anne and George Boleyn were very much a team. Though Anne had far greater influence due to the King's infatuation with her, her brother clearly identified both of them with the new religious ideas.[38]

George's own religious views resulted in him having an influential role in the Reformation Parliament between its conception in late 1529 and his death in 1536. Both siblings were gifted debaters on the issues of religious philosophy and it was George whom Henry chose in 1531 to argue the case for royal supremacy over the Church, before the Church's advisory body, Convocation.[39]

On 5 February 1533, George was formally called to Parliament and his attendance rate was higher than any other Lord despite his other onerous duties, clearly indicating his commitment.[40] He obviously voted in favour of the statutes which brought to an end the Pope's powers in England, and his commitment to religious reform earned him many enemies who held true to the Catholic faith. Various peers who were opposed to the legislation were excused attendance provided they appoint a proxy. George twice held the proxy vote of Lord LaWarr, an adherent to the old religion. Unfortunately for George, LaWarr later sat on the jury which tried him.[41]

George also used his fine talent, intellect and religious fervour for a less savory purpose. In 1535 he was one of the special commissioners at the trial of Sir Thomas More and at the trial of three Carthusian Monks, all of whom, because of their religious convictions, had been unable to swear allegiance to the Acts of Succession and Supremacy which had been passed the previous year. George, his father, the King's illegitimate son Henry Fitzroy and all other courtiers of rank were present at the monks' brutal executions which took place on 4 May 1535.[42] In his scaffold speech at his own execution George said, "Truly and diligently did I read the Gospel of Jesus Christ, but I turned not to profit that which I did read; the which had I done, of a surety I would not have fallen into such great errors". His religious dogmatism had led him into errors rather than saved him from them. That may or may not be true, but from the contents of his scaffold speech, it was certainly something George believed.

In June 1534, George was appointed Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports and Constable of Dover Castle.[43] These were the highest appointments in the realm and, as usual, he committed to them with zeal. He is regularly referred to in the State Papers in his position as Warden sitting at the Warden's court at Dover. From Thomas Cromwell's point of view, George's influence as Lord Warden was a thorn in his side. On 26 November 1534, George wrote to Cromwell expressing fury that Cromwell had undermined one of his orders made as Lord Warden

In 1536, Anne Boleyn miscarried a son. Her failure to provide Henry with a male heir coincided with Henry's infatuation with Jane Seymour, one of his wife's maids-of-honour. To rid himself of her, Henry and his chief advisor, Thomas Cromwell, devised a plot whereby Anne was accused of adultery with five men, one of whom was her brother, George. George was charged with incest with the Queen and plotting with Anne to kill the King. During a conversation with Chapuys following the Boleyns' deaths, Cromwell boasted that he had gone to a great deal of trouble arranging the plot, suggesting he did so in order to assist an alliance with Spain. Yet despite his boasts, during the same conversation he greatly praised both Anne and her brother for their sense, wit and courage.[45]

On 23 April 1536 George was expected to be chosen to receive the Order of the Garter, but the honour went to a known opponent of the Boleyns.[46] The following day Henry gave instructions to Cromwell to set up a special commission looking into various treasons.

Anne and George were arrested on 2 May 1536 the day after the May Day joust at which George was one of the principal jousters.

The four commoners implicated in the plot, Sir Henry Norris, Sir Francis Weston, Sir William Brereton and Mark Smeaton were tried on Friday 12 May. Only Smeaton confessed, probably due to torture but certainly emotional pressure. Despite lack of evidence all four men were found guilty. Thomas Boleyn sat on the jury and effectively condemned his own daughter by finding the men guilty.

Anne was pre-judged due to the earlier convictions of the men found guilty of adultery with her, therefore she stood trial before her brother. George stood trial a few hours after Anne on Monday 15 May. As Anne had been found guilty before George had stood trial he too was pre-judged because he could hardly be acquitted when his sister had already been found guilty of incest. The order of the trials had been very cleverly arranged to ensure the difficult case against George could not realistically fail. Everyone who witnessed George's trial, including the Imperial Ambassador Eustace Chapuys, confirmed that he put up a magnificent defence and many thought he would be acquitted. Chapuys confirmed that those watching were betting 10 to 1 that he would be acquitted and the court chronicler Charles Wriothesley said that his evidence was a marvel to hear.[47]

There was no evidence of incest save that on one occasion he had spent a long time alone with Anne. Chapuys says he was convicted merely on a presumption. George's wife has throughout history been accused of providing evidence to support the incest charge, but this is unlikely to be correct. None of the evidence relating to the trials makes any mention of George's wife as providing evidence save for the fact that she told in a letter that Anne had told her Henry was impotent.[48] This in itself was damning because it provided a potential motive for Anne's behaviour. Yet whatever Jane Rochford may or may not have said, it seems that the majority of the courtiers believed in his innocence, as can be seen from the wagers they were making in favour of acquittal.

Irrespective of what those at court thought, he was unanimously found guilty and the sentence of the court was that he be hanged, drawn and quartered (the sentence was later commuted to beheading). He asked for his debts be paid out of his confiscated assets so that no one would suffer from his death, and he continued to be distressed about his debts whilst awaiting death. In fact his distress was so acute that the Constable of the Tower, William Kingston wrote to Cromwell twice begging him to help ease George's conscience.[49]

George Boleyn and the other four men were beheaded on Tower Hill on the morning of 17 May 1536. George's scaffold speech was extremely long and exemplified the orator's linguistic skills. For it to have been recorded in as much detail as it was, the vast crowd who witnessed the executions must have been virtually silent, and there could have been little booing or jeering as with normal state executions.[50] His scaffold speech was primarily concerned with defending his religious beliefs and his passion for reform. It was not the honourable thing to deny guilt once a guilty verdict had been given in a court of law, and therefore he followed the conventions of the day by admitting he was a sinner deserving of death. He begged forgiveness of anyone he may have offended and begged for God's forgiveness. He came close to denying his guilt by declaring, beware, trust not in the vanity of the world or the flatterys of the court, or the favour and treacheries of fortune. He said he would be alive if he had not done so. By blaming fortune for his fall he came as close as he dared to denying his guilt (i.e., he was dying because luck had been against him, not because he was guilty). He then went on to speak of his religious convictions before calmly submitting his neck to the axe. Anne was beheaded two days later.
