One line of recognized Metis Vincents descends from the couple Thomas Vincent and Jane Renton through their offfspring:  John Vincent (Charlotte Thomas), Harriet Vincent (David Ramsay Stewart, George Gladman), Elizabeth Vincent (Jacob Truthwaite) and Jane Vincent (Edward Chambers).  2. Edmond Vincent dit Maheux and Marie Marguerite Chausse (daughter of Pierre Chausse and Marie Lacroix Tcipaiatik) were an early Algonquin couple in the Maniwaki region [Source: Jean-Guy Paquin].  3.  Scroll down for several Metis, fur-trader and Huron Vincent biographies as well as some interesting Gladman/Vincent family ethnographic notes and a portrait of Nicolas Vincent. Note:  HBC service records relate to employees who worked in traditional indigenous territories and who may or may not have started mixed-heritage families.
