History of Neuville

The Seigneury de Dombourg (Neuville) was deeded to Jean Bourdon on 12 December 1653, for his son Jean-François Bourdon, who began its development in 1667. The name was then Dombourg also known as La Pointe - aux-Trembles. The Dombourg name is an anagram of Bourdon.

 The main reasons for the rapid settlement of Neuville from 1667 are the following:

  1. Neuville is only a stone’s throw by canoe from Quebec, and as the road now was the river. It was easy to travel to Neuville because of the tides.
  2. Lord Jean Bourdon was an important individual. He was a member of the Sovereign Council of New France, thus attracting tenants to the area due to his notoriety.
  3. The fact that Neuville was built on three levels, the first being at sea level, made it easy to reach the upper level while at other locations, there was often an escarpment of several feet making it difficult to reach the upper level.
  4. Neuville was considered the place where the ground was so fertile that it was known as the ‘Granary of New France’.
  5. Lord Jean Bourdon’s wife, Anne Gasnier was dedicated to bringing the King’s Daughters to New France, to take husbands in Neuville. In fact, Neuville is the place in New France where, relative to the population, the largest number of weddings with the King's Daughters occurred. More than 48 such marriages were made among the inhabitants of Neuville.

6.    Lord Bourdon had master carpenter Mathurin Morissette build a mill as early as 1668 so that his farmers could grind their grains. 

At the beginning of 1669, a Chapel was built and as early as May 25, Bishop Laval of Quebec celebrated confirmations in Dombourg (Neuville). Missionaries from Quebec came to offer religious services to Dombourg.  Subsequently, as soon as people settled in the parishes all the way to Batiscan, missionaries from Dombourg offered religious services all along the coast.

The nickname Neuville, which we also meet with the article Laneuville, is the equivalent of Villeneuve. It designates a new city or a new district. This is also the meaning of the name "Novgorod", in Russian. It's the equivalent of Spanish ¨Villanueva¨ or ¨Newton¨ in English

As of 1679, registration of baptisms, marriages and burials began. 

In 1680 the seigneury was sold to Nicolas Dupont de Neuville and from this date, it bears the name of Neuville Pointe-aux-Trembles.

The Census of 1681 shows the population of Neuville as nearly 400 in 74 families, while New-France counts only 9677. Quebec shows 1345 and Montréal 1418. St. Augustin shows 175 in 37 families, Deschambault 12 in a single family, Grondines 55 in 14 families and Cap-Santé 31 in 3 families.

The canonical erection of the parish is dated 1684 and in 1716 under Lord Nicolas Renaud d’Avesnes Desméloïses, the seigneury took the name of Pointe-aux-Trembles of Quebec, a name that was commonly used and which remained for more than 200 years until 1919.


In 1919, following an argument over sidewalks in the village of Pointe-aux-Trembles, there was a division and a municipality called Neuville was formed, located in the middle of the municipality of La Pointe-aux-Trembles. Thus, both to the East and West of the village of Neuville, sits La Pointe-aux-Trembles.


In 1997, the two municipalities of Neuville and La Pointe-aux-Trembles amalgamated and took the name of Neuville. The city now has nearly 4000 people. Over time, the seigneury of Neuville has had three names: Dombourg, Neuville and La Pointe-aux-Trembles.
The Seigneury included parts of Les Squirrels, Cap-Santé, Saint-Basile, Saint-Raymond and all of Pont-Rouge.


Neuville is one of the most beautiful villages of Quebec. The advertising leaflet of the Association of the Most Beautiful Villages of Quebec states: "A network of authentic heritage villages, located in remarkable landscapes".  "It is an authentic world where community and well-preserved architectural heritage are blended into remarkable landscapes that are both treasure and home.  A world where history is part of the land, and where the people are a part of the landscape".
