and its augmentation is a seigniory in the co. of Portneuf. It fronts the St. Lawrence and is bounded S.W. by the S. of Jacques Cartier; N.E. by Point aux Trembles and in the rear by D'Auteuil. - It is 1/ 2 l. in breadth by 1 league in depth. Granted Nov. 3rd, 1672, to the Sieurs Toupin. The augmentation, of the same breadth as the seigniory and 2 l. in depth was granted Jan. 20th, 1706, to Marie Magdelaine Mezerai, widow of Jean Toupin. - ...The lands are nearly all conceded and most of them settled... The river Jacques Cartier crosses the S. diagonally, and is also watered by the Riviere aux Pommes, a pretty winding stream that flows into the former. The timber has been nearly all cleared off, and what remains is very inferior both in kind and value. - Several roads cross this grant and one, intersecting them at right angles, runs from the banks of the St. Lawrence to the Jacques Cartier...
