I am looking at a copy of the URBAIN TESSIER biography (taken from the French Canadian and Acadian Genealogical Review).

I'll paraphrase: The arpent which Urbain Tessier had received in 1651 from the Company of Montreal within the town, included the greater part of the present Place d'Armes, the site of the Bank of Montreal and the lots which Rue St-Jacques cuts through, to the east. The tourist can read, sculptured into a building block of the facade of The Royal Trust Company, Rue St-Jacques, the following inscription:

Then it gives exactly the wording you gave me in your message.

Someone from Canada e-mailed me offering his services, and I think I'll ask him to get me a copy of that plaque from the book you suggested.

Thank you for the information. I really appreciate it.

Gerry Weigand
