Saint-Henri, Québec, Canada (Saint-Henri-de-Lauzon) - 1832 - In the Parish of St. Henry de Lauzon
the lands granted before 1759 were 3 arpents in front, by 30 and some by 40 arpents in depth: 20 sols per arpent were paid, with one sol quit rent, and a reservation of sufficient timber was made for the purposes of building mills, churches and other public edifices. - The unconceded lands in this parish are considerable, and all fit for cultivation; but there is no road access across them, and the greater part has been surveyed. Many young parishioners are both willing and able to make new settlements if they could obtain lands near home, or at a little distance, and there are more lands than could be required to satisfy this demand, an those lands are in general of good quality.
