Charles Le Moyne and his Family

Le nom des Le Moyne est l'un des plus illustres de la Nouvelle-France. Charles Le Moyne de Longueuil et de Châteauguay (1626-1685), militaire, négociant, interprète et premier seigneur de Longueuil, fut le fondateur de cette famille remarquable anoblie par Louis XIV. Ses fils, nommés de Longueuil, de Sainte-Hélène, d'Iberville et d'Ardillières, de Maricourt, de Sérigny et de Loire, de Bienville ainsi que de Châteauguay, combattirent à la grandeur de l'Amérique du Nord les ennemis de la France sur terre et sur mer et servirent leur patrie avec éclat comme colonisateurs et administrateurs.
