Rigolet | Inuit, Metis (1911)

Index: Native Surname Census Extracts

Inuit surnames: Adams – Allan – Allen Blade – Blake – Broomfield Camocock – Chaulk – Chickquack – Cove Flowers – Goudie – Groves Jefrey – Jiffrey McKenzie – Meolus – Mucko – Mugford Newel – Newell – Oliver Pallicer – Perry – Pottle Rich – Shuglo – Simon William – Williams – Wolfrey

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. To reach the original census records for the district named below, you can click on the External Links at the bottom of the post.

2. You can also click on many of the individual surnames to reach that listing in one of the census records (usually 1901 or 1911).

3. Surnames highlighted in orange also appear in the Marriage Records (although often spelled differently).

  1. On one of your posts, I followed a link that showed native marriages from the 1900’s
    On 8/5/1901 Louis Jocks married Anne McComber in st. Francois xXavier parish, in caughnawaga
    How can I get more detail of this marriage, trying to trace my ancestry to Louis Jocks? Are the parish records available online?appreciate all your posts!

    • Hello Glenn,
      At one point I had a membership to Ancestry.com so many of the marriages I list came from there. My second source is the BMS2000 registry. If you google that you’ll find it. The challenge is that the surnames in that period are frequently moving back and forth between the Anglicized version of the name and the Iroquois surname.

  2. I have been searching my roots in maine. This lead to the broomfeild, deer, Pottle story read from John and James Pottle family bible. It also says in there James George no more know, same for Thomas, Samuel. I searched in Rigolet in birth and baptism and found what looks like early 1777 Thomas, Mary were the parents in the bible story who remarried and had more children rigolet not online any more. The problem liking maine with Labrador is I can’t find boarder crossings years about 1790 1799. I am certain my family links there, why every name I found in maine are the same as I found 1911. My dates start in 1810 my search took me to Whitefield cemetery I found James M Pottle, George, Samuel ages on tomb stones almost gone point is I can find no records on there except tomb stones. In maine the pottles married Moody’s and Bailey’s
    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can be reached at wishihadgoldeberyl@gmail
