Jacques de Noyon

Explorer, fur trader and soldier, Jacques de Noyon explored the Kaministiquia route to the Lake of the Woods in 1688, and was probably the first European to have travelled through this area. The report that he made after returning to Montreal was of great value to later explorers.
