Said to have been named by La Salle's men, in derision of his
dream of a westward passage to China. The land was granted by the
Sulpicians to La Salle as a seigniory in 1666; and from here he set
forth on his memorable explorations, in 1669. Twenty years later, this
was the scene of a terrible massacre by the Iroquois. In the eighteenth
and nineteenth centuries, Lachine became of importance as the
starting-point of the brigades of the fur traders, bound for the far
West. =Index=: (Bishop Laval era) Origin of the name, 148; massacre of, 225. (Count Frontenac era)
