Seigniory of Lacolle
A seigniory located on the west side of the Richelieu River, north of the US border. It was originally called the Seigniory de Beaujeu and was granted to Sieur Louis Denis de la Ronde in 1733. It was regranted in 1743 to Louis' son, Sieur Daniel Lienard de Beaujeu, after whom it was named. In 1755, he was granted another section to the south on condition that the two parts be merged. Originally it extended below the 45th parallel but this was lost following the US Revolution. In the late 1700s, the seigniory was acquired by Gabriel Christie. His son, Napier Christie, who took on his wife's family name of Burton, was responsible for the beginning of the serious settlement of the area in the early 1800s.
