    • Lord de Pobomcoup,Esquire, Lieutenant-Major

      Philippe Mius d'Entremont was born in Normandy, France in 1609. In 1651, he met the Governor Charles de la Tour, who brought Philippe, his wife Madeleine and their daughter Marguerite to Acadia. On July 17, 1653, Charles de la Tour granted the Barony of Pombcoup to Philippe Mius d'Entremont and Pierre Ferrand, and named them Barons. Pierre Ferrand is believed to have remained at Port Royal. Philippe and Madeleine raised four more children, Jacques, Abraham, Philippe and Madeleine. The Baron was forced from his barony following an attack by a band of Dutchmen in 1675. In 1670, Philippe was appointed the King's Attorney General in Acadia. That is why in 1678, we find him with his family at Port-Royal. In 1688, Philippe Mius d'Entremont retired to Grand-Pré, where he died in 1699. Meanwhile, Jacques, eldest son of Baron Philippe Mius d'Entremont, took over the Barony. Those exiled from Pombcoup (today Pubnico) during the Deportations of 1756 and 1758 returned 11 years later in1767 to resettle the village. Pubnico is thus recognized as being the oldest Acadian village still inhabited by descendants of its founding families.
      Filhipe Mieux squire Master de Lendremont (or Philippe Mius D'Entremont) left La Rochelle in 1651, as major general to the new governor Charles de Latour. The latter granted him the Seigneurie of Pobomcoup (today known as Pubnico) in the extreme southwestern portion of Nova Scotia.

      !Titles: Esquire, first Baron of Pubnico, Lieutenant-Major, King's attorney
      First of the d'Entremonts in Nova Scotia.

      According to Placide Gaudet, the Norman Philippe Mius was related by
      marriage to the Bourbon family and was made Sieur d'Entremont by Louis
      XIV. But, according to a descendant, H. Leandre d'Entremont, the titles of
      nobility are said to go back to the 11th century in Savoy, and a branch of
      the Savoy family is thought to have emigrated to Normandy during the
      16th century.

      According to tradition he died at Port-Royal, but Leandre d'Entremont
      indicates Grand Pre, where d'Entremont may have gone to reside with his
      daughter Marie-Marguerite Melanson, as the more likely place of death.

      According to Janet Jehn, "it is believed by Genevieve Massignon that he
      is the same person as Francois VIRGINE, Comte d'ENTREMONT and of
      Montbell, Marquis de Monteillier, who married Madeleine du TILLET,
      daughter of Elie, Seigneur de Nogent, and of Francoise du FAUCOIN. The
      parents of Francois VIRGINE were married in 1600 (ref. Massignon, pp.

      The Rev. C. J. d'ENTREMONT, genealogist and researcher of French
      Canadians and Acadians, states that Philippe MIUS D'ENTREMONT was in
      no way related to the Montbell D'ENTREMONT of Savioe. This fallacy is
      supposedly fostered by an uncle, Leandre H. D'ENTREMONT, and copied by
      many authors. Philippe MIUS's patronymic name was not D'ENTREMONT but
      MIUS, probably of German origin, from the word "majus, maius, Mius."

      The name of D'ENTREMONT according to Rev. d'Entremont, is an adopted
      name, probably from the grandfather who would have been adopted by
      Jacquelin D'ENTREMONT, Nicolas MIUS having died at the side of her
      husband Gaspard de COLIGNY at St.-Batholemy. Rev. d'Entremont has
      copies of the signatures of Philippe Mius and Francois Virgine, which
      are entirely different from each other. He further states that the Baron
      D'ENTREMONT had three sons: Jacques, Philippe and Abraham. Philippe is
      said to have married an Indian girl and their descendants are mostly
      integrated with the Micmac nation. Abraham had nine children through
      his marriage with Marguerite de LATOUR. All died when young except for
      Marie-Josephe, who married Rene LANDRY and was exiled in Cherbourg.

      Jacques married Anne de LATOUR and hads five daughters, four of whom
      married officers from LATOUR's army. Jacques also had four sons:
      Philippe, married to Therese St.-CASTIN, went to France before 1710;
      Charles and Joseph were exiled in France, and Jacques was exiled in
      1756 in Massachusetts with his three sons, Joseph, Paul and Benoni,
      while a fourth son was also exiled in France. This last son, Jacques, died
      in exile in 1759 in Walpole, Mass., and his sosns, Joseph, Paul and Benoni
      returned to Nova Scotia to West Pubnico in 1766, where they settled and
      left many descendants. The Rev. d'ENTREMONT is a descendant of Joseph,
      and has been compiling the history of Cap Sable." Acadian Descendants,
