Saint-Constant, Québec, Canada

Saint-Constant is located some 30 km south of MONTRÉAL, on the South Shore of the St Lawrence River.

The early settlement of Saint-Constant dates back to the mid-18th century, even though the parish of Saint-Constant-de-la-Prairie-de-la-Magdeleine was only officially created in 1841. The parish got its name from Constant Le Marchand de Lignery (1663-1731), a well-known French officer who came to Canada in 1687. His son Jacques was in charge of the mission at Saint-Constant for a number of years. The small parish suddenly came into its own when the railway reached it in the 1850s. Saint-Constant and neighbouring Delson soon became important railway centres on the lines linking New York and Montréal. It was incorporated as a parish municipality in 1855... www.thecanadianencylopedia.ca
