This is part of a larger project to locate surnames carried by Natives, First Peoples and Metis in Eastern Canada. In this series of posts, I list surnames carried by Aboriginal (or part Aboriginal) individuals in the 1901 and 1911 census for the eastern provinces of Canada. Note: There are regular updates including external links (e.g. maps, encyclopedia) and added information (e.g. specific tribal affiliations). The companion series – Native/First Peoples/Metis Surnames of Eastern Canada – Marriage Records  – contains many of the same surnames as well as others.

  1. I need some assistance understanding where to look for my 2x great grandfather George Edwards. He is listed as the father of my great grandfather Frederick Garfield Edwards (born 1877 Hagersville, Ontario – Haldimand County). Frederick’s mother was Mary Shuler (d/o John Shuler (African) and Sarah O’Brien Klingersmith Shuler) The only time George Edwards is listed is on the marriage certificate of Frederick Edwards and Alice Doolittle. I have nothing else. I do not know a birth date or death date. I do not know if he married Mary Shuler. She is found in a census in the household of John Davis and they had several children. Mary may have also had children with Nicholas Wilson but this is unclear. It is family lore that George Edwards spoke fluent French and was from the Montreal area. We do know that Frederick Edwards did speak French and Mohawk (his wife Alice spoke Mohawk as well). I am only guessing that George Edwards may have been from a Quebec Native community; however he may have also been of African descent or Caribbean descent. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you

      I’m away from Montreal at the moment but will look at this when I get back in about a week.
      Bye for now,
