Ross | BC First Nations, Metis,  Montagnais, Tukudh Mixed-heritage: Cree, Montagnais, Scottish | Surname Anchor Post

Index:  Indigenous, Metis & Mixed-Heritage Surname Anchor Posts

Each of these posts is dedicated to one surname that is carried by someone connected to indigenous, Metis or mixed-heritage people in Canada.  Please be aware that it’s a synthesis of the information I’ve collected in my personal research throughout the years and is by no means complete!


  • Surname lists: Surname Anchor Posts, Iroquois, Metis (ON)
  • Regions:  Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Northwest Territories, Ontario, Quebec, Saskatchewan, Western Canada
  • Ethnicity:  Metis,  Montagnais, Tukudh, Mixed-heritage: Cree, Montagnais, Scottish
  • Associated surnames:  Allard, Black, Caissie, Charles, Constant, Cunningham, Dagneau, Delorme, Deschamps, Deschenes, Dominique, Ducharme, Dumont,  Fidler, Fisher, Flett,  Fraser, Gervais, Gladu, Grant, Green, Harriott, Harris, Henry, Higgins, Houle, Kanentakonhra / Ross, Lafontaine, Lafournaise, Lapierre, Laplante, Lauder, Leclair, Lefort, Malboeuf, Malcolm, Marion, Matheson, McBeath / McBeth, McKenzie, Moar, Moore, Moreau / Morrow, Murray, Parenteau, Peebles, Pelletier, Piche, Poitras, Pruden, Sansregret, Short, Simpson, Tait, Thibault, Thorn, Tourond, Vincent, Walsh / Wells, Young
  • Misc.:  1. One line of Ross Metis descends from Donald Ross (a Scotsman who worked for the Hudson’s Bay Company) and his Scottish wife Mary McBeath through their children: Donald Ross (m. Annie McKenzie), Roderick Ross (m. Victoria Ellen Harriot), Annabelle Ross (m. Charles Edward McDermot & then Curtis James Bird), Christina Ross (m. Bernard Rogan Ross), Frances Ross (m. Curtis James Bird), Jane / Jean Ross  (m. James Hunter), Jessie Ross (m. Robert Clouston), Mary Ross (m. William Rowand & Frank Villiers). These are all Red River Rosses.  2. My marriage database contains both Innu Montagnais First Nations individuals as well as mixed Montagnais / French marriages as listed in a study by the Communauté Métisse du Domaine du Roy et de la Seigneurie de Mingan.  Some mixed French/Montagnais descendants self-identify as Metis (see Etienne Rivard’s discussion paper).
