Montmagny, a town in Montmagny county, Quebec, on the south shore of the St. Lawrence, at the mouth of the South river and the St. Nicholas river, and on the Canadian National Railway, 32 miles east of Quebec. It was founded in 1678 and incorporated in 1845, when it was named in honour of the Sieur de Montmagny, second governor of New France, to whom part of the land which now comprises the town was granted in 1646. The surrounding district is chiefly devoted to farming, dairying, and market-gardening. The principal industrial plants of the town include saw, pulp, grist, and carding mills, foundries, sash-and-door, furniture, brush and broom, silk, and butter factories, and rolling mills. It has two colleges, two academies, a hospital, and two French weekly newspapers (Le Peuple and Le Courrier-Sentinelle). See F. k. J. Casault, Notes historiques sur la paroisse de St. Thomas de Montmagny (Quebec, 1906).
