(A) SEIGNEUR HOUSE - CHRONOLOGY (1719-45):
Jean Seigneur dit LaRiviere, a innkeeper, operated an inn in Lot B from at least 1723 until his death in 1745.
Seigneur and his wife were residing in Lot B by 1719. In that year a drunken soldier, Claude l'Enfant dit Bellegarde, stole a petticoat that Laforest's wife (in Lot K) had hung to dry with other linen on the picket fence which enclosed Seigneur's garden. The theft was witnessed from Seigneur's house by Martin Fortin dit Lafortune, a sergeant, who was on his way to the barracks [NOTE 1].
The Seigneur house first appears on Plans 1720-2 and 1720-4. The latter states that the house was built in 1720. Since Seigneur was occupying what was to become Lot B in 1719, it is assumed that either the plan was incorrect or the house was not completed until 1720.
On 10 June 1720, Seigneur received a concession for a property which had a frontage of 38 pieds, presumably along the Rue Toulouse, and a depth of 43 pieds into the block. Six square pieds were to be left between Seigneur's property (Lot B) and Lartigue's property (either Lot A or the land at the south end of the future Lot L). Here, at "the place of a brook," a fontaine publique, probably a public well, was to be made [NOTE 2]. Plans for the fontaine apparently never materialized for no other reference to it has been found. The entire concession seems to have been ignored, for on 20 June 1722 Seigneur received a new concession for the property. The second concession granted the same frontage as the first but extended the depth to 68 pieds into the block. At the time of the 1722 concession, Lartigue's magasin at the rear of Lot L intruded into Seigneur's yard [NOTE 3]. (See Plans 1720-2 and 1720-4).
Seigneur was described in 1720 as an "archer de marinne," which seems to have been an attendant or messenger. The 1723 plan and etat referred to him as a cabaretier, possibly not making the distinction between a tavern keeper and an innkeeper [NOTE 4]. (See Plan 1723-2). All other documents gave innkeeper (aubergiste) as Seigneur's occupation.
In the summer of 1727 Seigneur purchased a 25-year old Panis slave, named Louise, from a sea captain, Pierre Ruette Dauteuil Sieur Lamolitiere, with the intention of using her as a servant in his inn. Her former owner had been a merchant, Lamy, in Montreal. Seigneur paid two barrels of red wine to Lamolitiere and was to pay two more in 1728. To Seigneur's consternation, he discovered in February of 1728 that Louise was in her eighth or ninth month of pregnancy. Michel Ange Leduff, the Recollet curé, was called in for a private interview with her and learned that during the voyage from Montreal - "lors que la chendelle étoit Eteinte et que lEquipage étoit tranquille" she had slept in Lamolitiere's cabin and was expecting his child. Lamolitiere had been aware of her pregnancy when he sold her to Seigneur, and had warned her to say nothing, promising to return before the baby was born. Seigneur found the situation unacceptable and refused to keep her, "tant a Cause de Mauvaise Exemple quelle pourroit donner a Sa famille quy Sont des Jeunes filles, que parce qu'il ne Sauroit en Tirer Les Services dont il a besoin dans Son auberge" [NOTE 5]. Despite Seigneur's protests, Louise gave birth to a boy on 3 April 1728; he was named Louis and baptised with Seigneur's daughter, Angelique, as godmother and the father unnamed [NOTE 6].
On 1 August 1728 Lamolitiere and Seigneur made a formal agreement that Louise and her child would be sold in Martinique and replaced with a small Negro boy. The arrangements were carried out by August of 1729 - Louise had been sold for 600 livres, and a Negro boy had been purchased for 650 livres, transported to Louisbourg and established in Seigneur's inn [NOTE 7]. On 6 January 1731 a 14-year old Negro boy, who was living with Seigneur, was named Etienne and baptised, with another of Seigneur's daughters, Marie Magdelaine, as godmother [NOTE 8].
Several references are made to people staying in Seigneur's inn on the Rue Toulouse - François Bourlastequy, a sea captain, in 1733; Dominique Barêche, a sea captain, in 1733, and Chapelain, a former ship captain, in 1739 [NOTE 9]. The engineer's assistant, deCouagne, stayed in Seigneur's inn for a rent of 200 livres in either 1733 or 1735 [NOTE 10].
When Vallée made his survey in 1734, Lot B still retained its measurement of 38 pieds on the Rue Toulouse. The property's depth into the block had increased since the 1722 concession; the south boundary ran 72 pieds to Lot K, and the north boundary ran 48 pieds to Lot L. (See Plan 1734-5) [NOTE 11]. The size and ownership of Lot B, as described by Vallée, was confirmed in 1735 [NOTE 12]
Marie Corporon, Seigneur's wife, died on 6 October 1735, at the age of about 49. Two daughters, Marie Magdelaine and Anne, had predeceased her; both died on 15 April 1733, during the period of the smallpox epidemic and famine in Louisbourg [NOTE 13]. It seems from the parish records that four daughters survived her - Angelique, Josephe, Françoise and Catherine.
In 1737 a Quebec merchant, Bertrand Larreguy, died in Quebec after returning from Louisbourg where he had lodged with Seigneur. Larreguy had left several things in Seigneur's inn: a locked chest containing a plane chart, clothes, ten books, chocolate, white sugar, four pieces of material (mazamet), a silver goblet, 49 fishing lines and three pieces of rope. Shortly after his death, Larreguy's heirs requested that an inventory be made of the possessions which he had left in Louisbourg with Seigneur, Fautoux and Michel Daccarette. The goods were inventoried and sold at two auctions, one in Seigneur's inn on 23 January 1738 and one on the Quay on 26 March. A total of 453 livres 2 sols 4 deniers was realized from the sale and was to be forwarded to Larreguy's heirs, probably after the deduction of expenses [NOTE 14].
Included in the settlement of Larreguy's affairs was an itemized bill for his stay in Lot B between 23 September 1736 and 4 August 1737. Prices at the inn were high. Sixty livres per month was charged for Larreguy, totalling 670 livres for 11 months and five days. Ten livres per month for seven months was charged for "Mal fich," who seems to have been [PAGE 71:] Larreguy's servant. His total wine bill was substantial. The usual charge was 2 livres for one bottle of "frontignan," 1 livre 10 sols for a bottle of Navare wine, and 12 sols for a bottle of unspecified wine [NOTE 15].
It is not clear if the price of the pension included meals as well as lodging. There is one bill of 3 livres 10 sols for a meal in Larreguy's room and five other bills for Larreguy's dinner guests - 1 livre 10 sols for one person (M. Cannonier, M. Dolabarats and an Englishman), 3 livres for M. Cannonier and three fishermen, and 3 livres for M. Lartigue and what seems to be the Pascaud brothers. Larreguy is not mentioned in the five dinner bills, although it seems safe to assume that he was eating with his guests. He also had bought separate items of food - a pie for 3 livres, a duck for 3 livres, a pig for 10 livres, three (pounds?) of sugar for 1 livre 16 sols, eight (pounds?) of flour for 1 livre 4 sols, six biscuits for 8 sols and "1/4" of flour weighing 178 pounds for 26 livres 14 sols. The total bill came to 945 livres 13 sols. It seems that 529 livres 10 sols was owed to Larreguy, leaving a final sum of 416 livres 3 sols which was paid to Seigneur [NOTE 16].
Jean Seigneur dit LaRiviere died in his house on the Rue Toulouse in 1745, at the age of about 58. The date of death given by the parish records is 2 March; the date of 3 February, given at the placing of the seals, apparently is incorrect. It seems that one daughter, Françoise, was living with him at the time [NOTE 17]. Angelique was married to Claude Coeuret and Josephe to Louis Loppinot dit Lafresiliere [NOTE 18]. Catherine, who would have been a minor, was not mentioned in the succession and may have predeceased her father.
Seals were placed in the house and magasin on the morning of Seigneur's death, and an inventory commenced on 12 March. On the 15 and 16 of March the goods were sold at the house by public auction, which was announced by a drummer in the usual manner [NOTE 19].
To the right on entering, presumably from the Rue Toulouse, was the kitchen which was furnished with seven straw chairs, a kitchen table, another small table and an old cupboard serving as a buffet. A large fir armoire with two doors was located near the door and contained a variety of things - the establishment's linen (including 118 napkins, ten table- cloths, [PAGE 72:] and 16 bed sheets), clothing, dishes, candlesticks, a sabre, playing cards and an account book. The presence of andirons, a shovel, tongs, and a turnspit suggests that there was a fireplace in this room. Situated at the rear of the kitchen was a small cabinet which contained an old bed and five chairs of turned wood [NOTE 20].
To the left on entering was a chambre with a cabinet at the rear. Unfortunately, no differentiation was made between the two rooms when the items were inventoried. The furnishings consisted of a mattress (mattelas), two old tapestries, an old armchair and a small table with two drawers. The assortment of things found included two guns (a fusil boucanier and another gun which sold for 8 livres and 17 livres respectively), a shaving dish, a set of wooden scales with 15 pounds of lead weights, a pewter syringe, three spits, a large beer cauldron (which sold for 46 livres), dishes and several articles of clothing [NOTE 21].
Seigneur's papers were kept in "a small cupboard which is in a small cabinet against the alcove." This very probably was located in the cabinet of the chambre on the left. The term "alcove" appears several times in Louisbourg documents and has not yet been clearly defined. One possible definition is a bed-recess or bed-closet and suggests that Seigneur may have had a built-in bed. The room's inventory listed a mattress which could have been used in the alcove, and clothing, dishes and other items which could have been stored in the armoire [NOTE 22]. The arrangement of the cupboard and the alcove in the cabinet possibly was similar to that found in the surgeon's quarters in an infantry officer's pavilion. (See Lot B appendix).
From the rooms on the left (north) side of the house, the inventory moved upstairs to a small room on the left at the top of the stairs. Three wooden beds, six wooden chairs, a chest, an iron cooking pot and two tin funnels were in the room. There seems to have been enough accoutrements for two beds - two mattresses of straw (mattelas), two of feathers (lits de plume) and two feather pillows [NOTE 23].
The goods in Seigneur's inn do not seem substantially different than what one would expect in a private dwelling. There were few beds and mattresses in the house and not an inordinate number of tables and chairs [NOTE 69]. [PAGE 73:] No blankets were mentioned in the inventory of the house, although two were found in the magasin and three were sold in the sale [NOTE 24]. A large beer cauldron and a large number of packs of cards were inventoried in both Seigneur's inn and Auger's inn and house.
What seems to have been the personal items of Jean Seigneur and Françoise were inventoried in the kitchen, chambre and cabinet of the chambre, indicating that the ground floor of the house was utilized as their living quarters. It is possible that Françoise slept in the mauvaise couchette in the cabinet of the kitchen, although there was no mattress in the inventory of the room. Seigneur probably slept in the cabinet of the chambre.
It is possible that sleeping quarters for customers were provided upstairs and/or in the magasin: three couchettes were found in the attic and two in the magasin. It is also possible that this furniture was in storage [NOTE 25]. As with the Auger inn in Lot L, the inventory of Lot B was made during the winter when there would not have been a large turnover of clientelle.
The sale of Seigneur's goods yielded 1,604 livres 19 sols 9 deniers. His two married daughters were present or represented at the sale and both purchased about 250 livres worth of household goods. All of the silver remained in the family. Coeuret, Angelique's husband, purchased two pairs of silver buckles (24 livres), a table setting and a goblet (54 livres), a large soup spoon (53 livres) and two pairs of silvered copper candlesticks (5 livres). Loppinot dit Lafresiliere, Josephe's husband, purchased four place settings (130 livres) and two silvered copper candlesticks (5 livres) [NOTE 26].
It is likely that Seigneur's daughters shared equally in the inheritance. Lafresiliere was responsible for the goods between the placing of the seals and the inventory. The preamble to the sale described Coeuret as an heir [NOTE 27].
(B) CHRONOLOGY (1745-68):
There is no indication of what happened to the Lot B buildings in 1745 between the time of the sale in March and the siege in June. Unless it had been rented, it would have been empty, for its contents had been sold at [PAGE 73:] the auction. It is possible that the building was damaged in either the siege or the ensuing occupation, as apparently were the buildings in Lots A, C and D.
Nothing has been found to establish with certainty who occupied Lot B during the second French occupation (1749-58). It is probable that Joseph Marie Armant, a master wig maker, was living there in 1751 and 1752. Jean Tabare became apprenticed to Armant, who lived on the Rue Toulouse, in October of 1751 [NOTE 28]. Armant, "demeurant En Cette ville Rue Dethoulouze," was a witness at the Guion-Auger inquest. He testified that, from his house, he had often heard Catherine Koller crying in the Lot L yard and several times had looked into the yard and seen her grandmother hitting her with her hand. It is probable that Armant was looking into Lot L from the yard in Lot B [NOTE 29]. More research on Armant is required.
The former Seigneur inn survived until at least 1768. It was being used as a storehouse or stable in 1767. (See Plan 1767-1). In 1768 it was reported to be in bad repairs that is "for the most part the Floors partitions and windows taken away for Fuel" [NOTE 30]. (See Plan 1768-1).
(C) SEIGNEUR INN - STRUCTURAL DETAILS:
As it was a private structure built in the early years of Louisbourg's settlement, the Seigneur inn was probably of picket construction. Plans 1746-1, 1767-1, 1768-1 and N.D. 27 show it to be wooden, which could indicate either picket or charpente construction.
The plans show the inn with the west wall running along the entire west boundary on the Rue Toulouse (38 pieds) and the south and north walls with the same dimensions as Benoist's Lot C house (22 pieds) [NOTE 31]. It is probable that the Lot B building shared common walls with the buildings in Lots A and C, since the plans of Block 2 show an unbroken line of houses fronting the Rue Toulouse.
The inn seems to have had a pitch roof with east and west slopes. (See Plans 1725-9a, 1730-2, 1734-4, N.D. 89 and N.D. 105. The 1720 plans show their standard hip roof while N.D. 24 shows a hip on the north end). A roof covering of wood shingles is indicated on 1725-9a.
There were four ground-floor rooms and one first-storey room in the house in 1745. When making the inventory, the officials would have entered by a door on the Rue Toulouse, the buildings and yards in Lots A and C preventing any other access. To the right of the door, and therefore in the southwest part of the house, was the kitchen with a cabinet at the rear (in the southeast). To the left was a chambre (in the northwest) and a cabinet (in the northeast). The upstairs room, to the left at the top of the stairs, was small. Seals were placed on the lock of the door to the cabinet in the chambre, and on the floor of the first-storey room [NOTE 32].
It is probable that the inn had one and a-half storeys. This is suggested by the fact that the inventory found only one small room upstairs, and all views (except N.D. 76) do not show the roof of the building above the houses of one and one and a-half storeys on the Quay front of Block 2. View N.D. 76, a rough sketch of Louisbourg in 1736 or 1737, shows a common roof line on the buildings of Lots A, B and C. Lot A had either one and a-half storeys or one storey and an attic, while Lot C had one storey.
There are no clues to the locations of windows and chimneys on the Lot B inn, since the building does not appear on any views. The ground floor windows would have been on the east and west walls, with the north and south walls blank. Light for the upstairs room was probably supplied by dormers on the east and/or west roof slopes.
It seems that there was only one chimney. Fireplace utensils were found only in the kitchen, and only one set was sold in the sale [NOTE 33]. No indication is given of how the other rooms were being heated at the time of Seigneur's death in March.
(D) SEIGNEUR'S MAGASIN:
A magasin was built behind Seigneur's inn by 1722. (See Plan 1722-1). The town plans between 1722 and 1734, except 1722-1 and 1724-2, show the structure abutting against the inn.
The size and location of the magasin varies on the plans. The plans indicate that it originally was located on the north boundary of the [PAGE 76:] property, and was extended along the east and south boundaries until, by 1734, it was standing only on the east and south boundaries. It is shown on the north boundary on Plans 1722-1, to 1724-2, on the north and east boundaries on Plans 1730-2 and N.D. 24, on the north, east and south boundaries on Plan 1731-3-(l), and on the south and east boundaries on Plans 1734-4, N.D. 89 and N.D. 105.
It is probable that the magasin(s), like the house, was wooden. Plan 1725-9a shows horizontal planks on the roof on the north magasin. A pitch roof is seen on the south magasin on Plans 1734-4, N.D. 89 and N.D. 105.
After Seigneur's death in 1745, seals were placed on the door of a "petit magasin" at the back of the house. At the time of the 1745 inventory, the magasin contained a large table with two trestles, a table with turned legs, three straw chairs, three wooden chairs, three old chairs, two old beds, a feather mattress, a straw mattress, four feather Pillows and two white blankets. Also inventoried were a saw with its frame, a cutting instrument, a stone mortar, a copper fork, four old coffee pots, a tin larron (possibly a thief of a candle), and an iron stove with its pipe. It is possible that the magasin was being used for storage. It is also possible that the magasin was part of the inn. The presence of the stove supports the latter possibility: the stove seems to have been in good shape, for it was not described as old and it was sold for 65 livres. Since there apparently was only one fireplace in the house it is likely that, if the stove were not operating in the magasin, it would have been in use in the house at the time of the inventory [NOTE 34].
It is probable that the Lot B magasin was destroyed during the 1745 siege. The building, which was standing in March of 1745, does not appear on the post-1745 plans.
(E) SEIGNEUR YARD:
Plan 1725-9a, which shows the west end of Lot B, is the only plan which shows a fence or a garden in the yard. A picket fence separates the yards of Lots B and C, while a garden is shown to the south of the Lot B magasin. There is no picket fence between the garden and the land at the rear of [PAGE 77:] the house, as is seen in Lots C and D. Other plans which indicate the cultivated areas in town properties do not show a garden in Lot B.
