The origins of Saint-Lambert date back to the 17th century. The town is made up of what were the outermost portions of two seigniories: La Prairie, which had been granted to the Jesuits in 1647, and Longueuil, which had been conferred upon the Montreal trader Charles Le Moyne in 1657. Present-day Victoria Avenue represents the dividing line between the two seigniories.
