In 1753, the first land in the area was granted and subsequently settlers from La Prairie, Île d'Orléans, Baie-Saint-Paul and Nova Scotia formed the initial nucleus of the Lucois, identified long ago like Savannah.
The name Saint-Luc was chosen in 1799 by Monsignor Pierre Denaut who wanted each of the authors of the Gospels to be represented south of Montreal. It should also be noted that the parishes of Saint-Mathieu-de-Belœil and Saint-Marc, located a short distance away, are also dedicated to evangelists.
1801 - The parish of St-Luc opened
The mission, opened in 1801, gave its name to the parish established in 1832, when it was detached from Saint-Joseph-de-Chambly.
On the civil level, the parish was recognized in 1835 and the year 1845 saw the erection of the municipality of the parish of Saint-Luc (de-Longueuil).
It became part of the municipality of the county of Chambly in 1847, it will be reestablished in 1855 as municipality of the parish of Saint-Luc.

1895 Buried in a Landslide
Five Members of a Family Swept into the Champlain River

Quebec, Sept. 23. - A report comes from St. Luc, Champlain county, of a disastrous landslide on the Champlain river Saturday night. Zephirim Normandin's house was carried away and five members of the family were buried in the debris. Three children escaped by jumping through windows, one of whom has since become insane as the result of the calamity. After great difficulty the residents of the vicinity succeeded in digging out the five dead bodies. Further destruction is almost certain as the river is blocked with the detached earth and the river bank is being inundated at other points.
