1647 - Seigniory (Lachenaie) granted April 16, 1647, to Pierre Legardeur, Sieur de Repentigny

HISTORY OF LACHENAIE
A very old village that gradually passed from agriculture to suburban residential functions, Lachenaie was inhabited from the 17th century, since the first settler would have settled there as early as 1672. It was under the impetus of the main man of business of the time in New France, the financier and fur trader Charles Aubert de La Chesnaye (1632-1702), that this agglomeration developed. the latter, ennobled in 1693, acquired, in 1670, part of the seigneury of the Assumption which Pierre Legardeur de Repentigny (around 1608-1648) had owned since 1647 and which the latter had bequeathed to his son, Jean Baptiste. The new owner gives it his name, which has been slightly modified over the years to take its present form around 1676.

St. Jean or Jesus. - The original extent included the fief L'Assomption, and was granted April 16, 1647, to Pierre Legardeur, Sieur de Repentigny, and contained 4 leagues in front by 6 in depth; this tract was afterwards equally divided into the present seigniory and fief, and the former is the property of Peter Panman, Esq. - The quality of the land is various, but tolerably good: the usual sorts of grain and other produce are cultivated here with much success; and many places are well suited to the growth of flax, which might be raised to a considerable extent. On the borders of the St. Jean, Achigan, Mascouche, Ruisseau des Anges, St. Pierre and other streams, are nine ranges of concessions, containing together 456 lots, nearly equal to one half of the seigniory; of this number rather more than...

Lachenaie, Qué, pop 21 709 (2001c), 18 489 (1996c), incorporated in 1972 as a city, in 2001 it was amalgamated with 2 other cities to form the new city of TERREBONNE. Lachenaie lies along the north bank of the Rivière des Mille Îles at its confluence with the Rivière des Prairies. The name is a reminder of the role played by Charles Aubert de La Chesnaye (1632-1702) as founder and seigneur of the original settlement.
The old agricultural settlement dates back to 1672 when the first colonists arrived. Its history is steeped in the FUR TRADE. La Chesnaye was involved in the fur trade as were Jacob Jordan (1741-96) and Nor'wester Peter Pangman (1744-1819), 2 of the last seigneurs in the late 18th century.

The settlement was devastated 3 times by the Iroquois under the leadership of Chaudière noire (Black Cauldron) from 1689-92 near the end of the IROQUOIS WARS. The surviving 33 colonists prospered under the treaty with the Iroquois (1701) and by 1765 there were 352 inhabitants. In... Read MORE...
