Paul Louis Dazemard(d'Azemar), sieur de Lusignan: (1691-aft.1746)
     Paul was the son of Paul de Lusignan (b.abt.1670) & M.Jeanne Babie (m.1689, Champlain), born Champlain, Quebec. He married M.Madeleine Marguerite Bouet (daughter of Francois Bouet & Jehanne Dandonneau) at Montreal in 1722. Together they had the following children: Louis (b.1723), Louis Antoine (b.1726, m.Louise Gillette Renaud in 1754), Madeleine Angelique (b.1729), Charlotte Madeleine (b.1733), Giles Victor (b.1734), M.Anne Madeleine (b.1735, m.Francois Trottier in 1764), Madeleine Genevieve (b.1739), Madeleine Francoise (b.1743) & Marie Anne (b.1745).
     Paul's father-in-law, Francois Marie Bouet, had been hiring voyageurs for the west from 1704 to 1718 and as was he by 1735. In 1743 Paul is given the command at the La Baye (Green Bay, Wisconsin) Fort which he had until 1746. In that year he visited the Sioux and established a peace treaty between the Ojibwe at Lapointe and the Dakota of the lakes & plains.
     Beauharnois report to Count de Maurepas on the condition & military affairs of Canada, dated 28 oct.1746;" ..Sieur de Lusignan, who spent last year among this tribe, has meanwhile ordered these coureurs des bois to return. They gave him to understand that they were ready to obey and follow him; they even set out, but, either on reflection, or rather on learning that they would be arrested at Missilimakinac, they turned aside and abandoned Sieur de Lusignan. This officer brought with  him this summer four Scioux chiefs of the Lakes and Prairies, who came down to solicit my pardon for 19 of their young men who had killed three Frenchmen at the Illinois. The chiefs delivered up these young men, bound and tied, to Sieur de Lusignan, on his arrival at their village, seemingly evincing sorrow for the fault they had committed. This nation behaved well during the winter, and made peace with the Puants, Wild Rice Indians, and the Sauteurs of the Point, with whom they had been a long time at war. Sieur de Lusignan obliged them to restore the prisoners they had made which produced tranquility among the nations inhabiting that post. As regards the lessees of the post, they have made no complaint to me of Sieur de Lusignan, who favored their trade by every means in his power. These lessees would have done a very profitable business had they not suffered from fire, whereby they have lost considerably. The increase in the price of beaver has, however, indemnified them partly for that loss. We jointly report to you the arrangement adopted relative to that post, the lease of which has expired, and to the others that are in a like position."
