Residents of St. John’s Parish (excluding those in the Town of Winnipeg) in 1870, who were represented in the Legislative Assembly of Assiniboia by Hon. Andrew Graham Ballenden Bannatyne.

Rev. John West (Anglican, a Member of the Church Missionary Society) was hired as chaplain to the Hudson’s Bay Company [HBC] in 1820. That year he established a mission on the west bank of the Red River, a mile north of HBC Fort Douglas, next to a creek that became known as ‘Parsonage Creek.’ Work began on building a small wooden schoolhouse and a church building of frame and log construction in 1821. The project, which established the parish, was finally completed in 1822/ 1823.

After the flood of 1826, a replacement church designed by Rev. William Cochran and built of stone was completed in 1833.  The Rt. Rev. David Anderson, the first Bishop of Rupert’s Land arrived in 1849, and, in 1853, St. John’s Church was re-designated St. John’s Cathedral. It in turn was replaced by a new stone building, begun in 1856 and completed in 1862. (The final and current stone cathedral was built in 1926 and expanded in 1959).

The Archibald census of 1870 indicated there were 417 people of the parish who professed to be Protestant (whether Anglican, Presbyterian, or Methodist) and 17 who professed to be Catholic (marked as ‘RC’ below).

The electoral boundaries of the parish during late February 1870 differed from those used for conducting the census beginning in October 1870. This list is therefore a first step in reconstructing the electorate during the Resistance — pending further research.

[1759-1760] William Cook (Métis, born 1839/ 1841 to William Cook and [Mary Ann Beardy?]; died c. 1883) married Margaret Smith (Métis, born 1842 to #4413 Peter Smith and Susan Peysonnette)

[#826]

– [1761] William Kennedy 4 (adopted; Métis, son of James Kennedy and an unidentified woman)

William Cook took treaty with the St. Peter’s Band in 1871. He was paid annuities for 3 persons from 1871 to 1876. In 1877 he began receiving payments for 4 persons, having adopted a niece of Margaret Smith.

In an affidavit of 1881, Margaret Smith described her husband as a farmer at St. John’s Parish.

In 1882, “to once again obtain our franchise,” and in application for scrip, William Cook and his wife Margaret Smith paid the Department of Indian Affairs $100, refunding annuities he and his wife had received as members of the St. Peter’s Band (the adopted children remaining with the Band in treaty). William declared that he had never lived at St. Peter’s, but instead resided at St. John’s Parish. At first, the Department was uncertain as to what had become of the $100. The couple was granted discharge from treaty. William died shortly afterward. Scrip was issued in their names in 1886. Sheriff Colin Inkster, acting on behalf of Margaret Smith-Cook then raised the issue of whether the Cooks had ever owed any repayment of treaty annuities at all, given changes in legislation that exempted Métis people leaving treaty from the requirement of repayment. In 1886, the Department of Indian Affairs informed Inkster that no refund could be made. The case was still under discussion in 1991, but the same conclusion was arrived at.

  1. Perhaps someone can point me in the right direction – Where would I find church records of St. John for July 12, 1825. Specifically looking for a Marriage Certificate for William Robert Smith and Mary Ann Swain.

  2. Entry is incorrect: “[182-183] Alexander Logan (Metis, born 1848 to Robert Logan and Mary)…”

    As proof read the actual pages 182-183, following Alexander Logan; the tick box for metis is unchecked, as is the tick box for anglais metis further over. That is because Alexander Logan is the son of the English woman Sarah Ingrahm, Robert Logan’s second wife (also in this census in the same household).

    Alexander is NOT the son of Mary Saulteaux, Robert Logan’s first wife. Thank you. Now, Robert Logan himself was mixed blood black, a quadroon born in Jamaica. But,that is another story…

    • Thank you for catching the transcription error Lilah.

      The entry will be updated.
