(Concession along the present day Rang St-Edouard or Rang du Dix (10)(St-Étienne))
Note: There appears to be some confusion in the documents between the First Concession and the Chateauguay River Concession. Many of the documents that stated First Concession are shown in other sources to be located along the Chateauguay River which properly should be Chateauguay River Concession. These listings are marked with a * and have been also duplicated in the separate Chateauguay River Concession listing below. Please keep this ambiguity in mind when researching this list.

Châteauguay River Concession
Concession de la Rivière Châteauguay

(Concession along the northwest side of the Châteauguay River.)
Note: There is apparent confusion in Sarault's documents regarding First Concession vs Châteauguay River Concession. Most of these documents state the location as First Concession (except lot 16) but other sources, namely Sellar's History, locate them along the Châteauguay River which was properly named the Châteauguay River Concession (North Georgetown). Sellar referred to it as North Georgetown River Front Concession. They are listed here separately from the First Concession to point out this ambiguity.
