Good evening zebrejaune!
From 1627, the Company of the Hundred Associates established the seigneurial regime in New France in order to organize the territory and society.
From the establishment of this regime, the division of land takes the form of seigneuries. Each of the lordships have their lord and the people who live there are censitaires.
