Pre-European contact[ edit ] Jacques Cartier at Hochelaga. Arriving in , Cartier was the first European to visit the area. Archaeological evidence demonstrates that First Nations native people occupied the island of Montreal as early as 4, years ago. Within a few hundred years, they had built fortified villages.

This is believed to be due to outmigration, epidemics of European diseases, or intertribal wars. At the confluence of Petite Riviere and St. French authorities surrender the city of Montreal to the British after the Articles of Capitulation was signed in Dauversiere hired Paul Chomedey de Maisonneuve , then 30, to lead a group of colonists to build a mission on his new seigneury.

The colonists left France in for Quebec, and arrived on the island the following year. On May 17, , Ville-Marie was founded on the southern shore of Montreal island, with Maisonneuve as its first governor. The settlement included a chapel and a hospital, under the command of Jeanne Mance. In the spring of , the Iroquois attacks became so frequent and so violent that Ville Marie thought its end had come.

Maisonneuve made all the settlers take refuge in the fort. By the colony at Montreal had been so reduced that he was forced to return to France to raise volunteers to go with him to the colony the following year. If the effort had failed, Montreal was to be abandoned and the survivors re-located downriver to Quebec City. Before these arrived in the fall of , the population of Montreal was barely 50 people. By Ville Marie was home to some colonists, most of them living in modest wooden houses.

Ville Marie became a centre for the fur trade and a base for further exploration. To encourage French settlement, they wanted the Mohawk to move away from the fur trading post at Ville Marie. They had a mission village, known as Kahnewake , south of the St Lawrence River. The fathers persuaded some Mohawk to make a new settlement at their former hunting grounds north of the Ottawa River.

As expected, this move proved unpopular and several mergers were later rescinded. The demerger took place on January 1, , leaving 15 municipalities on the island, including Montreal.
