  • Note: "Je Me Souviens" Winter of 1984 Published by: American French
    Genealogical Society; P.O. Box 2113, Pawtucket, Rhode Island, 02861-0113.
    Vol. VII, No.2 -Winter 1984; pp.1 - 22. from "Bull. des Recherches
    Hist.", Vol. 32. 1926. "The Great Fire of 1721 in Montreal", by Loucille
    Founier Rock. On the 19th of June, 1721, Montreal experienced the worst
    fire of in its history. When the holocaust was over, at least 126 homes
    and buildings had been destroyed. According to a letter written by M. de
    Ramesay, gouvernor of Montreal, dated the following January 21st, 138
    homes had been involved in the fire besides other stores and buildings.
    However, documents written ar the time list 126. The fire was srarted
    accidentally. It was a day of celebration. On the previous Saturday, the
    12th of June which was the feast day of Corpus Christi, the skies opened
    and it rained heavely thus cancelling a planned religious procession.
    Seven days later on, June 19, the Soeurs Hospitalieres (an order of nuns
    who in hospitals), in an effort to compennsate for the lost holiday,
    decorated the chapel painstakingly and lit the usually somber room with
    the flames of many candles. At the moment when the procession was leaving
    the chapel but before the Blessed Sacrament was brought into the parish
    church, one of the arquebusiers, instead of firing in the ais, fired on
    the church roof which quickley became engulfed in flames. The high winds
    and the intensity of the heat forced those who were trying to extinguish
    the blaze to retreat. The alarm was sounded. A large number of men came
    forward to assist but all their efforts were to no avail. From the church
    of Hotel Dieu, the fire spread to the infirmary, then to the nuns'
    monastery. Although the roofs of these buildings were covered with cedar
    shingles, they burned as if they were made of straw. The neighboring
    homes were soon consumed and many who had come forward to help the nuns,
    had to leave to try to save their own homes. In less than three hours,
    the buildings owned by the nuns, which together measured in excess of 350
    feet, were reduced to ashes. The fire was uncontrollable. It spread like
    a contagious disease from house to house. There seemed to be no end to
    its vociferous appetite. People were scurrying all over the place trying
    to save what they could. They were yelling, screaming, crying and
    sobbing. Their hears ached as they watched what they owned reduced to
    ashes. There were not enough ladders. There were not enough buckets;
    there were not enough axes; and there were not enough ladders. They were
    powerless. When they had saved what they could, they watched the red
    flames decour their homes. The sky was thick and black with smoke hanging
    like a pall over the settlement. News of the disaster quickly spread
    throughout the country. Measures were taken to help the people of
    Montreal who had lost their homes and most of their possessions. In this
    disaster, it was the lower city which was destroyed. The fire which
    ravaged this section of old Montreal which was situated between the
    Seminary, the Rue des Communes, the Rue Saint Francois Xavier, and the
    rue Saint Dezier. Mgr. de Saint Vallier, bishop of New France, sent a
    letter to all the parishes in the colony asking the faithful to 'help by
    their charity, those of their brothers who suffered from the lack of even
    the most indispensable objects." Social behavior during the 18th century
    was not so different from today. There were those then as there are those
    today who profit from the misfortune of others. On July 4, 1721,
    Intendant Michel Begon found it necessary to issue an ordinance in which
    he stated that he had been informed of the many thefts which had occured
    during the diaster. In the confusion, furniture as well as other
    possessions, had been furtively removed, and hidden so that they could be
    mis appropriated. These thefts, said Begon, committed durin such a
    deplorable accident were an outrage and those caught would be severely
    punished to serve as examples to others. Begon allowed a week for all
    possessions to be returned to their rightful owners after which time,
    those apprehended would be prosecuted. This was a difficult time for the
    residents of Montreal. They had to muster their courage and rebuild..
    Surely, they found comfort in the knowledge that no lives had been lost.
    Moreover, such a catastrophe could as easily have occured during cold
    winter months. As painful as it seemed at the moment, there was much to
    be grateful for. The following listing was made shortly after the
    diaster. After each listing is a notation made by E.Z. Massicotte, noted
    Canadian historian, who attempted to identify each person named. Dwelling
