Category: American Immigrants to Quebec Eastern Townships

Categories: Migrants from United States to Canada


Under the terms of the Constitutional Act of 1791, the Eastern Townships were open to settlement and a land rush followed. Most of the 3,000 or so settlers came from the United States. A few were Loyalist, at least in spirit, but most simply wanted land and had no strong feeling about nationality.

The Eastern Townships were originally part of the following counties:

Arthabaska County, Brome County, Compton County, Drummond County, Frontenac County, Mégantic County, Missisquoi County, Richmond County, Stanstead County, Shefford County, Sherbrooke County and Wolfe County,
