Pierre Du Gua de Monts was born in 1558 in Saintonage. He is the son of Guy Du Gua and Claire Goumard He married Judith Chesnel and never had the opportunity to have children. He was an expolorer, trader, colonizer and governor of Acadia. He was the founder of the earliest permanent settlement in Canada. Towards the end of the 16th century, he made several voyages to Canada. It was during this time that France was showing a growing interest in what is now modern-day Canada. In 1603, de Mont's was given a trading monopoly. This was a privillege given to him by the king for trade and responsibility in settlement. He started to develop a trading company and others joined with a promise of appealing profits. There were non-members of the fur trading company that tried revoking his fur trading privilleges. His orders were to take charge of Port-Royal. He continued to participate in trade, exloration and settlement until 1617.
