Mascouche, Québec, Canada (Saint-Henri-de-Mascouche) - 1832 - The Parish of St. Henry de Mascouche (seigniory Lachenaye),
extends from the church N.E. about 2 leagues; by the Grand Coteau S. one league; W. and N.W. 1 1/ 2 league; and E. 1 1/ 2 league, comprehending the Cabanne Ronde. In this P. the lands conceded prior to 1759 are charged at the rate of one pint of wheat and 1 sol for each superficial arpent, and 3 sols, tournois quit rent, on each concession, with other usual charges and reservations. The present rents are at the rate of 2 1/ 4 bushels of wheat and 4 livres 10 sous, for each farm of 3 arpents by 30, except in the Cote de Grasse, where the rent is 4 1/ 2 bushels of wheat and one pistole. In this parish 6000 arpents fit for cultivation remain unconceded; these lands have no road, and have not been surveyed. There are a sufficient number of persons both willing and able to settle on these non-conceded lands, and the causes that retard their settling are supposed to be the high rates required by the seignior for each concession, and the preference given by him to strangers, particularly the Americans.
