Jean de Lamberville (27 December 1633 – 10 February 1714) arrived in New France from France in 1669. He was the older brother of Jacques de Lamberville. Jean was a Jesuit priest who became a missionary to the Onondagas and had some success due in part to his conversion of the chief, Garakontie. He also became well known for his knowledge of the medical treatments of the time.
