Yamaska County is bounded on the north-west by lake St. Peter, north-east by Nicolet county, south east by Drummond county, and south-west by Richelieu county. This county is about twenty miles long from north-east to south-west, and fifteen miles wide, and contains two hundred and eighty-three square miles. This county comprehends the Seigniories of LaBaieduFebvre, Courval, Lausaudiere, Pierreville, St. Francais, Yamaska, East Bourgnoice and Dequire. Much of the soil of this county is of a good quality, and some parts of it are in a high state of cultivation. Along the lake is an extensive tract of low meadow land, which is interersected by numerous clear rivulets, and in summer affords excellent pasturage. The eastern part, of the county is watered by a branch of the Nicolet; the St. Francis passes through the central part, and the Yamaska river falls into Lake St. Peter in the western part. The principal places are St. Antoine, Indian Village on the St. Francis, and Yamaska on the Yamaska river. Population in 1831, 9,496.
