Seigneury of L'Orignal, The

A parcel of land along the Ottawa River granted to François Prévost in 1674 was the first seigneury in what is now Ontario. Perhaps because of its remoteness, the area was not developed for settlement until the end of the 18th century. By 1825, however, a thriving village was in evidence on the Pointe à l'Orignac seigneury.
