Seigniory of Châteauguay
A seigniory that was located on the northeast side of the Seigniory of Beauharnois. It was 6 miles wide and 9 miles long and was bounded on the northeast side by the Mission de Sault St-Louis (now Kahnawake) and on the southeast by the Seigniory of Lasalle. It was granted in 1673 to Charles Lemoyne, Sieur de Longueuil. In 1706, it was sold to Zacharie Robutel de La Noue. In the 1760s, the seigniory was acquired from his heirs by the Soeurs de la Charite de l'Hopital de Montreal, better known as the Gray Nuns. In 1854, the seigniorial title was abolished by government decree. At that time, it became part of the County of Châteauguay.
