List of Metis Surnames of Ontario

 


This index is a list of links to information about Metis surnames that are present in Ontario and which originated primarily with the Metis of western and central Canada. It’s under development and is intended to be a Finding Aide to any information on this site that relates to the Ontario Metis. Most of the surnames are derived from the official Metis Nation of Ontario project, but I’ve also added a few from more recent generations.  

 

 

 

SURNAMES IN ORANGE

are those for which there is information on this site in my Marriage Index  and / or the Canadian Census Extracts.  You can search for these orange surnames in the Marriage Index or by using the Search Box in the sidebar. 

SURNAMES IN PURPLE  

are links to surname mini-indexes. These are either Surname Anchor Posts  or  Early French Canadian Pioneer Posts.  The goal of these posts is to gather all the links to information about one surname on one post so that it is easier to find.

The Surname Anchor Posts collect indigenous and Metis-related links. The Pioneer Posts focus on French Canadians but usually have some indigenous and/or Metis-related links.

SURNAMES IN BLACK  

represent surnames that appear in the Metis Nation of Ontario official lists, but do not appear on this site. I’ve listed those surnames in black at the foot of this post.

  1. need to research more on Bertrand—were they Metis?

    Liked by 1 person

    Comment by schreiber, ontario | December 10, 2019 | Reply

    • My grand mothers mother was a Bertrand, her name was Zemilia Bertrand, she married my ggf Lusires Guillory. The Guillory’s were Acaidian, they along with the Ringets, (Ranget), and Bertrands seem to have married alot within the three familys. I have Joseph J, 11, Leondre J, J. Bertrand, Joseph F., Amable Bertrand, G. Bertrand Beaulieu, Giles 1,Jan, de G.S. di Bertrand,Gillette, Jan, and Pierre Bertrand. Some of these may have come from France, also as I said Acaidian, through New Foundland to La. US. This is on my father’s mother’s side, I am tracing my fathers paternal side and found out that I have in the Robin side Metis going back to Kaskaskia Il. Territory, New France through marriage between Marie Rouensa, and Michel Philippe, she was the dau. of Chief Rouensa of the kaskaskia Indians.He was a french trader along with being in the military stationed there.Trace some or all of these names back, and save names that you keep seeing at times during your searches. Charboneau, Menard, Roy, Fortier. These names I kept seeing every once in a while during my searching other lines taking me back to Canada. I just kept digging and finally the dots started to connect, and these name’s became part of my familly.. If your Bertrand line traces back to Canada chance’s are your Bertrands will have Metis, but don’t take me by my word alone check everything out real good. I hope that you find what your looking for.

  6. Such wonderful work you’ve done!
    I saw Lavigne. My relative Sophie Lavigne+dit-Tessier married George Dean. My Great-grandfather Leo Chester Cunningham who married Lydia Hill said Sophie was the beginning of our Mohawk Turtle Clan Ancestry. Could I somehow send you details?
