Memorable Manitobans: Charles Jean Baptiste Chaboillez (1736-1808)

Fur trader.

Born at Michili­mackinac in 1736, the eldest son of Charles and Marie Anne (née Chevalier) Chaboillez. In 1769 he married Marguerite (d. 1789), daughter of Jacques Larcheregue and by her had two sons and seven daughters. He engaged in the fur trade, and his name occurs repeatedly in the fur trade licences from 1769 to 1787, but there is no proof that he was a partner in the North West Company.

He was at Pembina in 1797 and in 1804 was given command of the Assiniboine district, but retired the following year.

Chaboillez died in Montreal on 25 September 1808.
