Romain | Metis, Huron, Mixed-heritage | 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!


  • Regions:  
    • Ontario, Quebec
  • Ethnicity:  
    • Metis, Huron, Mixed-heritage.
  • Associated surnames:  
    • Abram, Audet, Benoit, Berube, Blondin, Blouin, Collins, Duchesne, Dupuis, Gagnon, Gervais, Groslouis, Hamel, Holden, Joyal / Lafreniere, Lariviere, Laveau, Lord, Marcouiller, Marengo, Minor, Moore, Picard, Robin, Siou, Smith, Picard, Vincent, Wilwith.
  • Misc.: – 
    • 1. Augustin Romain and Adelaide Brisebois are recognized as a Root Ancestor Couple by the Metis Nation of Ontario. They left descendants through the following offspring: Adam Romain (m. Catherine Smith), Augustin Romain (m. Philomene Vaillancourt), Flavie Romain (m. Elie Gervais), Joseph William Romain (m. Sophie Desrosiers), Marguerite Romain (m. Francois Blondin), Marie Elmire Romain (m. John Moore), Therese Romain (m. Antoine Joyal / Lafreniere and Basile Minor),



There are Romain Metis descendants present in various Ontario Census records that I will eventually transcribe.
