The maiden name of his mother was Luce Casgrain, a daughter of the Seigneur of La Bouteillerie, also an old French family. He was educated in the Quebec Seminary, and the Jesuit College at Georgetown, D. C. studied law in his native city with Hon. T. T. Taschereau, late of the Supreme Court; was called to the Bar in 1854, and practiced three years in Quebec.
