Map of the region of Montreal by Samuel de Champlain 1613. Like many maps of that period, the south is at the top. The present old-Montreal would occupy the space between A, the area at the mouth of the Petite Rivière Saint-Pierre, and B, the pond next to the mound, not shown. The letter H of the Mount Royal is difficult to detect, hidden in the print. St Helen’s Island  8, must not be confused with the marsh which has the same number.
