Saint-Lazare (Saint-Lazare, Quebec) The Richelieu River itself is very popular for both U.S. and Canadian recreational boaters, providing a connection that can bring boaters all the way from the outlet of the Saint Lawrence River to New York Harbor. A number of old fortifications existed dating back to the 17th century were built to prevent the Iroquois from using the river as a way to attack the French settlers in the area. Fort Richelieu is at the mouth of the Richelieu River. Fort St. Louis (now Fort Chambly) at Chambly (Chambly, Quebec), Fort Sainte-Thérèse, and Fort Saint-Jean (Fort Saint-Jean (Quebec)) at Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, are on the way. Fort St. Anne Isle La Motte, Vermont in Lake Champlain is near its source. The forts were built in order to protect travellers on the river from the Iroquois. The region is informally known as la Vallée-des-Forts. thumb left Aerial view of Saint-Bruno in 1952 (File:Saintbruno1952.jpg) At the beginning of the 19th century, families residing on the western flank of the mount were under the clerical responsibility of the parish of Boucherville while families from the southern flank were under the responsibility of the parish of Saint-Joseph de Chambly (Chambly, Quebec). As a consequence, the tithe was being paid to two different parishes so in 1809, a first request to transform the seigneury into a parish was made to M gr (Monseigneur) Joseph-Octave Plessis, Archbishop of Quebec. This request was met with a refusal. It will be thirty-three years before the Montarvillans attempt to form into their own parish again.
