People, Pictures and News From the Past

"Point-aux-Trembles is on the north est of the Ile of Montreal. It was 27 years after the foundation of Ville-Marie, that the first concession of land in Pointe-aux-Tremble was given by the priests of the seminar of Saint-Suplice de Ville-Marie.

Pointe-aux-Trembles is located where the St Lawrences and the Rivieres-des-Prairies join and was selected as a location to help defend Montreal.

On 5 April 1669, M. Queylus, gave 60 arpents of land to Jean Oury dit Lamarche and to others with the condition that a church and moulin be built.

Toussaint Beaudry bought, for 220 livres his first property there on 9 September 1670, from Pierre Bareau dit LaGogue, a soldier at the garrison of Montréal – between Pierre Papin and François Bau. He settled their with his wife Barbe Barbier and their 10 children.

The construction d’un moulin a farine was not built until 1672. As the population grew, the priests started having mass and administering sacrements in the house of a colonist Francois Bau and his wife, Francoise Bugon.

The Sieur Picote de Belestre was granted the concession on 28 July 1671 establishing the parish of L’Engant-Jesus. A wooden fort was build at Pointe-aux-Trembles as early as 1675, a windmill followed in 1677 and in 1678 the church was built.

A priest from the Sulpiciens would celebrate mas every Sunday for three years at Pointe-aux-Trembles. It wasn’t until 1674 that the community started planning for the building of a church.

This was the first church, L’Enfant Jesus, build outside of Montreal itself. It was a stone church that measured 36 feet by 24 feet..."
