SILLERY, Noel Brulart de, French missionary, born in France in December, 1577; died there, 26 September, 1640. He belonged to a noble family in France, at an early age entered the Knights of Malta, and was afterward ambassador at Madrid and Rome. He finally renounced the world, became a priest, and devoted his large fortune to works of charity. The Jesuits having suggested to him the founding of a town in Canada for Indian converts, he was pleased with the idea, and in 1638 sent workmen to Quebec to execute the plan. The result was the establishment of the town that bears his name. In a few years it was filled with Algonquin Christians, who cleared a large tract around it, and were taught the duties of civilized society. See " Vie de l'illustre serviteur de Dieu, Noel Brulart de Sillery, Chevalier de Nalte, et Bailly Commandeur Grand' Croix dans l'ordre " (Paris, 1843).
