St. Ann’s/ Poplar Point

[under construction]

Residents of St. Ann’s Parish in 1870, who were represented

St. Ann’s was also spelled as St. Anns and St. Anne’s and was also known as Poplar Point. The electoral riding/ parish is not to be confused with Ste.-Anne also known as Point des Chêne, Sainte-Anne-Pointe-des-Chênes, Ste.-Anne des Chênes, and as Oak Point (which is in turn not to be confused with Oak Point/ St. Laurent/ Manitoba/ Manitobah on the shore of Lac des Prairies/ Lake Manitoba).

Settlement at Poplar Point along the Assiniboine River began prior to the construction of a church. Many inhabitants migrated from older parishes on the Red and Assiniboine Rivers as river frontage became less available.

Archdeacon William Cockran arranged for the construction of St. Anne’s Anglican Church, beginning 1859.  Building with logs assembled in the Red River frame style began in earnest in 1862. The church was completed in 1864. The first incumbent minister was Reverend John Chapman.

For the census of 1870, inhabitants of the Long Lake Settlement were enumerated under a separate heading.  Winterers, who had left on the fall hunt, were also counted, though they were identified as absent. It is not clear whether the people of Long Lake and wintering buffalo hunt families were included as voters of St. Ann’s/ Poplar Point or of Whitehorse Plains for the elections for the Legislative Assembly of Assiniboia. Unless historical evidence is found that indicates a different placement would be more accurate, both groups will remain listed below.

Although many parishioners of Poplar Point professed to be Protestant, there were also those who professed to be Roman Catholic (designated ‘RC’ in the list below).
