The town of St. Lunaire-Griquet was originally two separate towns (St. Lunaire and Griquet).. During the 1950's, the 2 towns were amalgamated as one - and both names were kept..
The area was used by Breton fisherman, as early as 1534, when they were visited by Jacques Cartier.. The first English settlers arrived in 1849; the Pateys at St. Lunaire and the Hills at Griquet..
By 1935, there were 500 residents - and the community became a service centre for the smaller communities around it..
St. Lunaire-Griquet was incorporated as a town in 1958..
