Augustin de Saffray de Mésy (1598–1665) was the first Governor General of New France in 1663 after Louis XIV took over the administration of New France from the Compagnie des Cent-Associés.

Verify little is known of Mésy, but he served as town major in charge of the château in Caen. He developed a tense relationship with François de Laval during his tenure and died in Quebec in 1665.
