Where is Granby, Québec, Canada? 

Granby is a town in southwestern Quebec, located east of Montreal. The town is named after John Manners, Marquess of Granby.

Granby area was inhabited by the First Nations until the late 18th century. On October 5, 1760, Major Robert Rogers, with a company of 200 men launched punitive expedition burning everything in its path.

In 1792, Loyalists were granted permission to colonize the Eastern Townships. In January 29, 1803, the Executive Council of Quebec conceded the Township of Granby to Colonel Henry Caldwell and his 97 associates. John Horner, the first inhabitant who settled on the site of the current town arrived in 1813. Horner built a sawmill near the Yamaska River. Twelve years later, in 1825, he opened a general store with Richard Frost. Frost traced the official plans later that same year.

Granby became an incorporated municipality in 1816 and a town in 1971.Wikipedia
