PIERRE CABAZIE - Toulouse- France - 1641 ( Historical Ancestry )
CABAZIÉ, PIERRE, court officer, jail-keeper, acting king’s attorney and judge, clerk in the court registry, and notary; b. c. 1641 in the region of Toulouse, son of Pierre Cabazié, royal notary, and Delphine Desbordes; buried 14 July 1715 at Montreal.
Cabazié’s long judicial career began on 23 Jan. 1673, when by virtue of a commission from Dollier de Casson he became serjeant-at-law (court officer) of the bailiff’s court of Montreal for the côte Saint-Martin. The following year, on 25 September, when Bénigne Basset* had been suspended for four months, the Conseil Souverain appointed Cabazié acting notary. But while continuing to draw up documents as a court officer, he practised the profession of notary without interruption from 1674 to 1693, receiving 172 acts. He was moreover a clerk in the registry of the bailiff’s court from 1674 to 1678 and from 1680 to 1691, and also acted as jail-keeper around 1683. In 1693, when royal justice was set up in Montreal, Cabazié left the seigneurs’ court; from 17 Nov. 1693 till his death he was a royal court officer; he also served as acting king’s attorney from 1696 to 1701, and as acting lieutenant-general in 1698, 1700, 1702, 1703, and 1705. On 23 July 1669, at Quebec, he had married Jeanne Guiberge, who was about 13 years of age.
