PERONNE DE MAZÉ, LOUIS, secretary to Governor Pierre Dubois Davaugour, captain in the Quebec garrison, gentleman in ordinary of the king’s bedchamber, member of the Conseil Souverain, son of Jean Peronne Dumesnil; death date unknown.
Peronne arrived at Quebec on 31 Aug. 1661 with Governor Davaugour. That same day, his brother Michel Peronne Des Touches was buried there. On 7 November he, together with Jacques de Cailhault de La Tesserie [husband of Éléonore de Grandmaison], received 15 acres of land on the Île d’Orléans, granted to them by Charles De Lauson; this became the fief of La Grossardière, adjoining the Beaulieu fief. From the summer of 1662 until that of 1663, Peronne was absent on a trip to France. On 24 Sept. 1664, Governor Saffray de Mézy, at loggerheads with the bishop of Quebec in the matter of appointments to the Conseil Souverain, named three new councillors, Louis Peronne de Mazé among them. The latter then sat regularly on the council until the meeting of 6 July 1665; he was obliged to leave for France shortly thereafter, and did not return. On the previous 14 May he had, before the notary Pierre Duquet, handed over to his partner La Tesserie his interest in the La Grossardière fief, which they had begun to clear together.
