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!

  • Misc.:  
  • 1. Variations in the Tremblay surname in census records include: Tremble, Tremblee, Trembley, Trombley
  • 2. Esdras Tremblay and Rosalie Tremblay (m. Louis Riguedel Sr.) lived through the Resistance of 1885. The 1885 North-West Resistance by the Metis and the Cree, Kainai, Piikani, Saulteaux and Siksika peoples took place against a backdrop of starvation, broken treaties and encroachment by new settlers in Saskatchewan and Alberta. The resistance fighters eventually lost and Canada’s federal government asserted its control over the area.  [Source: Veterans and Families of the 1885  Northwest Resistance, Lawrence Barkwell, Louis Riel Institute].
  • 3.  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. The Tremblay surname appears in that document.
