Îles Percées

At the dawn of the colonisation of New France, the picturesque South Shore region down the St. Lawrence River from Montréal was divided into seigniories. This area of the river has many islands that are so close together, they seem to be separated by streams. Thus the name Îles Percées (literally meaning Pierced Islands) Seigniory, which covers the region from Longueuil to Verchères, passing through Saint-Bruno.



Pierre Boucher

Sieur de Grosbois who lived from 1622 to 1717, Pierre Boucher was a man of many professions including soldier, interpreter, linguist, writer, judge, governor (of Trois-Rivières), founder, pioneer, defender and he was the first urban planner of one of the oldest localities in Québec. His work earned him the honour of being the most respected Canadian of his day.


Île Grosbois

Île Grosbois became the Boucherville Seigniory around 1967. It was a well-known seaside resort village and one of the Îles Percées'islands. Today, it is one of the Boucherville islands. This is where the Viscount Jacques de Lesseps, the son of the man who designed and built the Suez Canal, built and repaired airplanes around 1910.


La Broquerie

The former name of the Jesuit summer residence, La Broquerie is now an historic park on the shores of the St. Lawrence River.



Îles de Boucherville

Pierre Boucher was the first Sieur to settle on les Îles Percées. He was presented with the island seigniory by Intendant Talon for services rendered as a soldier on the front lines. This is where Boucherville was built, the first village along the river.



René Charles Alphonse Montarville Boucher de la Bruère, a descendant of Pierre Boucher, was born in Saint-Hyacinthe in 1867. He was the first news director of the Le Devoir newspaper and the Director of the Public Archives of Canada. In 1981, the city of Boucherville gave the name Montarville-Boucher-De-la-Bruère to its new library in recognition for the cultural legacy left by this great man of letters, and in honour of his ancestor Pierre-Boucher, founder of Boucherville.

R -100

The R-100 was a large state-of-the-art airship in its day. It was built by the British government at the end of the 1920’s. At that time, a project of this size had never been undertaken. It crossed the Atlantic Ocean in four days and arrived in Montréal on August 1, 1930.



Mortagne-au-Perche is a medieval city in the centre of France where, in 1622, Pierre Boucher, the founder of Boucherville was born. An ancient stronghold, it is known for its architectural heritage and its boudin noir, or blood pudding.


Jeanne Crevier

Pierre Boucher, founder of Boucherville, married Jeanne Crevier on July 9, 1652; it was his second marriage. Their union lasted 65 years and produced 15 children. A model wife and good teacher, her children became accomplished women and men of honour. She is considered to be the co-founder of the city of Boucherville.


The Sieur de Montbrun, Jean Boucher, is the fifth son of Pierre Boucher. He began his career in the troops and eventually became Captain de Montbrun. He commanded an entire militia. One of Boucher’s descendants, Jacques-Thimothé de Montbrun, founded the capital city of Tennessee, Nashville.
