The parish of St. Vital encompassed properties on both the east and west banks of the Red River in an area initially called Rogaton by Catholic priests — from a French word for leftovers/ scraps, implying the neighbourhood was a small, humble place or peripheral to the parish of the church at St. Boniface.

In 1860 Bishop A.-A. Taché of St. Boniface had a schoolhouse constructed — for a new Catholic mission station requested by settlers at Rogaton and to be cared for by the Sisters of Charity (Grey Nuns) — on the east side of the Red River (at lot 48). On the building’s completion, two Grey Nuns took up residence on Mondays through to Fridays (though they commuted six miles by horse and cart to St. Boniface to hear Mass and receive Holy Communion each day). They were: Sister Christine L’Espérance-Youville (born 1828, Quebec); and Sister Marguerite/ Margaret Connelly (Métis, born to HBC Chief Factor William Connolly and Miyo-nipiy/ Suzanne; and was therefore a sibling of Lady Amelia Connolly Douglas, wife of Governor Sir James Douglas at Vancouver Island, Colony of British Columbia),

Sixty-four children were enrolled the first year — some of whom had to cross the river on a daily basis to attend.

Over the winter, the two sisters prepared a small chapel within the structure, separated from the schoolroom by a folding door. The space allowed the Blessed Sacrament to be kept on site, with “the altar with a small shelf on each side and a prie-Dieu,” and a chair for the bishop and a priest.

On 4 April 1861, Taché celebrated the first Mass at the “école-chapelle,” placing the mission under the patronage of St. Vitalis (patron Saint of his Coadjutor Bishop Vital Justin Grandin), even though local residents had asked him to name the mission St. Alexander after Taché’s personal patron saint. Subsequently, Mass was held twice a week. The school eventually became known as Bishop Grandin, St. Vital School/ Grandin School.

Within two weeks of opening the chapel, the Red River began to rise [See “1861 flood“]. Floodwater forced the sisters to evacuate the site, but their absence proved temporary and damage was minimal. The school and chapel continued to operate — by 1870, with teacher Sister Anne ‘Annie’ Goulét (Métis, born to Alexis Goulét and Josephte Severette; and therefore was a sibling of Elzéar Goulet), followed by Sister Sarah Riel (Métis, born to Louis Riel Sr. and Julie Lagimonière/ Lagemodiere; and therefore was a sibling of President Louis Riel, Provisional Government of Assiniboia).

By 1871, the district school inspector, Mr. Royal, reported:

“The school-house of St. Vital is spacious, well-illuminated, but of defective ventilation. The class under the direction of the Sisters of Charity, is in excellent condition and few schools of the same kind could boast of an equal standing, i.e. for its tenure, its progress or for the advancement of it pupils. The number of pupils 64 (38 boys and 26 girls).”

A notable incident — the first overt act of the Red River Resistance — had taken place on the west side of the Red River on  11 October 1869.  When Canadian surveyors trespassed on the Hay Privilege of André Nault on 11 October 1869, Nault and a number of his relatives, including Louis Riel, put a stop to their activity.

survey

 “The Beginning of the Section Land Survey as Shown on J.S. Dennis’ Plan for the Survey of the Red River Plain. (1869).” [Click image to link to larger, original size.]

Note that the surveyors were measuring to the American plan, which marked out 160 acre quarter sections, as opposed to the settlement plan, which allotted every holding river frontage with a long narrow lot extending behind. Manitoba Historical Maps Photostream, Flickr page http://bit.ly/IqyFD, explains: “The most important line in the mapping of modern western Canada is the Winnipeg or Principal Meridian. It is shown on this map of the surveys completed by Lt. Col. J.S. Dennis and his survey parties in 1869, before Rupert’s Land was transferred to Canada. Marked in a darker shade are the parishes of Red River Settlement, subdivided into river lots by the colony’s surveyors. Cutting across the lots is the Winnipeg Meridian. The township survey, consisting of 64 sections of 800 acres in each township, is shown in the sketch in the lower right hand corner of the map. The point where Major Webb’s survey party was stopped by the Métis on October 12th [sic], 1869 is marked.”

See also Bob Holliday, “Marking Our Provincial Beginnings,” Winnipeg Free Press (Posted: 24 July 2013), for an indication of where the incident occurred — now marked by a monument erected by l’union nationale metisse saint joseph du manitoba.

Beginning in October of 1869, the Grey Nuns at St Vital school supported the Resistance. Along with teaching sisters at St Boniface, St Norbert, and St François-Xavier, they “had their students pray and sing around the clock for a Métis triumph.”

The R.M. of St. Boniface annexed part of St. Vital in 1880. The school and chapel were closed in 1887 “for no apparent reason.” The Rural Municipality of St. Vital was formed in 1903, “to end confusion with the Town of St. Boniface.” The river did not act as a community divider until the establishment of the R.M. of Fort Garry on the west side of the river in 1912. St. Vital on the east side of the river was incorporated as a city in 1962, then amalgamated with the city of Winnipeg in 1972.

  1. Thank you so much for printing this out! In a divorce he has my hard worked on genealogy. You have filled some gaps! Very much appreciated.

  2. Do you provide genealogy assistance (or know of anyone who does)? My family is Plouff, and I have Carriere relatives from Red River and Desjardins relatives. That’s all I know as far as my connection to Red River. Thanks!

  3. The information is great and covers a lot of my family tree. I was wondering how I can find out where Lot 61 is Pierre Gladu is my great grandfather and my Grandfather was 3 when this was chronicled. Thanks Joseph Pierre Gladu

    • You could visit the Archives of Manitoba to view maps of the settlement and see where Gladu properties were recorded over time. Or, there is a map online that shows Pierre Gladu’s property as of 1871 at https://www.flickr.com/photos/manitobamaps/2187411701 (download it at its original size to read it). According to that map Pierre appears to have owned a sizable chunk of land relative to other settlers. The property takes up most of a big river bend. Comparing the old map of the river bends to a modern one might allow you to pinpoint where the property sits today.

  4. i am looking for information on francois gladu, father of pierre gladu, where & when he was born, & the names of his parents
