Macleod | Peigan (1901)

Main Index: Native/First Peoples/Metis Surnames | Census Extracts

This is part of a larger project to locate surnames carried by Natives, First Peoples and Metis in Eastern Canada. In this series of posts, I list surnames carried by Aboriginal (or part Aboriginal) individuals in the 1901 and 1911 census for the eastern provinces of Canada. Note: There are regular updates including external links (e.g. maps, encyclopedia) and added information (e.g. specific tribal affiliations). The companion series – Native/First Peoples/Metis Surnames of Eastern Canada – Marriage Records contains many of the same surnames as well as others.

HOW TO USE  

1. To reach the original census records for the district named below, you can click on the External Links at the bottom of the post.

2. You can also click on many of the individual surnames to reach that listing in one of the census records (usually 1901 or 1911).

3. Surnames highlighted in orange also appear in the Marriage Records (although often spelled differently).

Exhibition Lacrosse Game Before Prince Arthur | (1869)

 

Canadian Illustrated News – Oct. 30, 1869

The following (Saturday) morning the Prince [Arthur], accompanied by Col. Elphinstone, Lieut. Picard and Mr.A. W. Ogilvie, M.P.P. visited the Lacrosse grounds at Sherbrooke Street to formally open the Tournament. At ten o’clock, preceded by the No. 1 Troop of Montreal Cavalry, under command of Capt. Muir, His Royal Highness drove on to the ground, and between two ranks of Lacrosse players went to the platform, where he was received by the Committee, and presented with an address, accompanied by a very handsome gold-mounted Lacrosse, and an elegantly bound copy of Mr. B…. work on the Game. Prince Arthur briefly thanked the Committee, and then proceeded to open the Tournament by tossing the ball of his crosse into the field. He watched the games with great interest for some time. A feature in the amusement of the day was the ‘war dance” of the Indians in full costume.
