Seigniory of Longueuil
A seigniory that was first granted in 1653 to Charles LeMoyne, Sieur de Longueuil. It was first located on the east shore of the St-Lawrence River around present day Ville de Longueuil. It expanded in several steps over the years and by 1710 included land from the St-Lawrence River to the Richelieu River and south along the west side of the Richelieu river to the Seigniory of DeLéry boundary near Grande-Ligne. In 1700 the name was changed to the Barony of Longueuil.
