At that time, the land was granted as title deeds or as payment for professional services. For example, the Lord of Lavaltrie entrusted the central portion to Mr. Vondevelden to pay for his surveying fees. As for the northern portion, Major Beauchamp Colclough, Crown Commissioner and Land Agent, granted land to English soldiers in 1822. He intended to establish the Town of Kildare, but his dismissal delayed the development of the place.[3][4] The first inhabitants came from Saint-Paul, Saint-Elizabeth, Lanoraie, and Berthier. Among the early settlers were also many Irish families, who cleared much land, built an English school, built a chapel, and a Protestant cemetery.[4] In 1832, the Parish of Saint-Jacques-de-Kildare was founded, renamed a year later to Saint-Philippe-de-Kildare. It was renamed again to its present name in 1839, since the Anglican, Methodist, and Catholic pioneers all had a devotion to Ambrose of Milan.[3][4] In 1847, the municipality was first incorporated, but abolished shortly after. In 1855, the Parish Municipality of Saint-Ambroise-de-Kildare was formed, with Charles Laporte as first mayor and D. Maigret as first treasury-secretary.[3][5] In 1956, the parish municipality lost a part of its territory when the Municipality of Sainte-Marcelline-de-Kildare was formed.[6] Economy Average income per family is $56,807. 88.20 % of residents are home owners, whereas 11.8 % of residents are renters.
