North West Post Census Surnames | Metis

Index: Native Surname Census Extracts

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.

Census Data: 

Enumeration District 34: Labrador, Northwest Territories

Includes: North West River Post


Baikie  –  Best  –  Blake  –  Broomfield  –  Chaulk  –  Goudie
Groves  –  Hope  –  McLean  –  Mesher  –  Michelin  –  Montague
Oliver  –   Pallicer  –  Pardy  –  Rich  –  White

Important Note:

Labrador is now part of the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. The area was historically included in the Northwest Territories census but is now part of the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. First Peoples of Labrador includ the Inuit, the Inuit-Metis and the Innu. Each group now has claims and I will be updating this note once I’ve done some more research. For now, all Labrador region towns that are listed under the provincial name of Newfoundland and Labrador.
