Abraham Martin
(B 1589 - D 1664)

Sur les plaines d'Abraham, à l'angle de la promenade des Gouverneurs et avenue du Cap-aux-Diamants, a été érigé en 2008 le monument Abraham-Martin conçu par Nicole Taillon. On peut lire sur la plaque : « Abraham Martin (1589-1664) arriva en Nouvelle-France vers 1620. Il fit paître son troupeau sur des terres des Ursulines, qui furent désignées Plaines d'Abraham. Au XVIIIe siècle, des documents militaires officilialisèrent ce toponyme, encore couramment utilisé. »
