Metis

1754 - 1757

The British and French continue to squabble.

The British-Americans and the French Canadians are also squabbling.

The New Canadians the Metis continue to develop the Grand Prairies.


The Metis are trading to the upper reaches
of the Saskatchewan River system.

James Duffield is back in the field at Henlet House after being removed in 1744 because of his tyrannical nature. He is keeping Won-a-wogen and Nam-a-shis at bed and board, while refusing relatives access to the fort. The relatives attacked the House, killing Duffield.

He continued until the 1760's and 1770's when he was licensed to trade out of British Green Bay, (Michigan).

Chevalier, (II)-Louis Luc de LaCorne (born 1711) of Saint-Luc, commandant of the North West Territories, claims to have planted the first wheat in the Province of Saskatchewan, in the Carrot River Valley. He also claimed to have planted other grains and vegetables at Fort St. Louis.

(I)-Anthony Henley, born on the Isle of Wright, an outlaw wanted for smuggling, joined the Hudson Bay Company to escape punishment. He is indentured to working as a laborer and net maker at Fort York (Manitoba). When (I)-James Isham, d-1761, Chief Factor of Fort York, (Manitoba) asked for a volunteer to travel the interior and assess the trading situation, (I)-Anthony Henday (in the HBC service 1750-1762) jumped at the opportunity. (I)- James Isham, d-1761, a bigamist, wrote that Cree maidens are rare at thirteen or fourteen, and none exist at fifteen years of age.

Jean Baptiste Reaume, voyager, and interpreter, for Le Roy at La Baie, New France (Wisconsin), is recorded at Makinac, New France (Michigan), this year in the birth, death and marriage records.

Governor Kerlerec of Louisiana, asked for permission to stop the Coureurs des Bois- those vagabonds and vagrants, who under pretense of hunting were guilty of trading with savages without the permission of the Governor. It is noteworthy that a short distance from French Fort de Chartes (St. Louis) was the Metis settlement of Cahokia, at the historic Indian trading place at the forks of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. The Metis, without fanfare, were everywhere collecting furs, far beyond the ability of the French, Spanish or English to control them.

The five English traders at Henley House are executed because they had taken two Cree women as concubines. As a result, any attempt to reestablish this post is thwarted by the Cree.

Jumonville and nine other French are sent to order Washington to withdraw from the area and are murdered by Washington before he retreated. Some believe this infamous attack by Washington triggered the American French Indian War known as the Seven Year War in Europe. In retaliation, on July 4, Louis Coulon de Villiers led a large force of French and Indians against the assassins who had retreated to Fort Necessity causing the surrender of the infamous George Washington (1732-1799). The French allowed the prisoners to return home. This defeat caused all of the waving Indian bands over to the French alliance.

June 16: Fort Detroit, New France (Michigan), birth, (III)-Charles Casse son (II)-Charles Casse dit St. Aubin son (I)-Jean Casse and (II)-Marie Joseph Mettay (1729-1759).

June 24: Anthony Henley attached himself to a departing Cree party who is going to the land of the Blackfoot below the great Stony Mountains. It is important to understand that there are four differing journals of the 1754-1755 Henley trip, it is not known which one represents the truth.

July: Francois Hamelin hired for Lac Rouge (pays d'en Hault) Charles Houle, Jacques David, Paul l'Arche, Jean Baptiste La Farque, Benjemin Hamelin dit Paquot, Francois Le Fleche and Francois Trouchon dit Le Veille.

July 24: Conawapa, the Cree, took (I)- Anthony Henday (HBC service 1750-1762) to the French Fort Paskoyac, also called Basque, Pasquia or La Riviere du Pas (The Pas), (Manitoba) and conversed with the 'Assinipoval Metis' who, on first encounter, threatened to take him prisoner and send him to France. The French called the Fort: Basque, and it was twenty six feet long, twelve feet wide and nine feet tall. Three Frenchmen are presently at the Fort. (I)- Anthony Henday (HBC service 1750-1762) said this country belongs to the English as much as the French. One version suggests Anthony Henday is under the direction of Attickasish (Little Deer) but his role changes depending on different versions. One version has Henday being contemptuous and the others as being uncertain, even frightened. I would suspect, due to his lack of experience, the latter is more likely correct.

July 28: Michillimakinac, New France (Michigan), baptism Joseph Verandrye born 1737, adult slave of Chevalier De la Verandrye (Verandrie).

August 21: Fort Detroit, New France (Michigan), death, Jean Baptiste Fauvel born 1753, parents not recorded but most likely son (II)-Jacques Fauvel dit Bigras (1696-1751) and (II)-Angelique Clement born 1705.

August and September: Anthony Hemley and company departed The Pas (Manitoba) and the Saskatchewan River, heading overland to visit the Assiniboine who told him they would not trade with the English as the French keep them well supplied. In a different version he suggests they will trade with the English. The former version is more likely correct. Anthony Henley wasted little time in obtaining a country woman for his journey.

September 1: St. Pierre les Becquets, Quebec, birth, (III)-Marie Joseph Couturier, Metis daughter (II)-Denis Joseph Couturier, Metis, b-1681, and (II)-Therese Hamel, b-1707, died March 14, 1737 St. Pierre les Becquets, veuve de Jean Tousignan, daughter (II)-Jean Francois Hamel..

September and October: (I)- Anthony Henday (HBC service 1750-1762) traveled south of Red Deer River to the Earchithinue tribe, visited the horsed Atsina of the prairies and south to the Bow River. Henday discovered that the Cree, like the Wendat of earlier periods, are middlemen in the fur trade. The Blackfoot do not have the canoe and the Bay is too far away for trade. One version of his journals suggests the Blackfoot gave Henley two slave girls but the other versions make no mention. This entry is highly suspect. It is suggested Anthony Henday (HBC service 1750-1762) first encountered the horse at Buffer Lake, Saskatchewan and bought his first horse at Sounding Creek, Alberta. Some even question if he made this trip due to the attempts to embellish his journals.

October 7: Fort Detroit, New France (Michigan), birth, (IV)-Marie Joseph Campeau, died August 10, 1755, Fort Detroit, New France (Michigan), daughter (III)-Nicolas Campeau (1710-1756) and (II)-Agathe Casse (1716-1808).

The November issue of Gentleman's Magazine said: The country bordering on the Hudson Bay might serve as an English Siberia where we might hold our convicts instead of hanging them by the thousands at home or transporting them to corrupt the natives of our colonies. Convicts should always be sent to a country barren and in a manner uninhabited because there they can't corrupt by their bad example. The Public Records of Ireland in Belfast contain documents of similar proposals. The worst offenders should be turned over to the Eskimos (Inuit) as slaves.

December 2: Fort Detroit, New France (Michigan), baptism, (IV)-Ursule Bouron son (III)-Louis Bouron dit Clermont; habitant La Cote south of Fort Detroit, New France (Michigan), and (II)-Marie Ripau et Roiet;

1755

There is a good chance that (III)-Oliver Garneau, also called Coline de Carillon and Perrin de Louarget, is involved in the construction of Fort Carillon, a.k.a. Fort Ticonderoga, which commands the outlet of Lake George, Minnesota into Lake Champlain . This Fort is also known as Fort Vaudreuil. The Fort was abandoned by the French in 1759

Alex Birshaw is born 1755 North West, census 1835, Metis colony Red River (Manitoba).

James Southland (Sutherland) listed born 1755, census 1835 Red River (Manitoba). This could be an error.

Marriage Marie Anne Amable Testard (1721-1799) daughter Jacques Testard sieur de Montigny (1662-1737) and Marie Anne Laporte de Louvigny (1696-1763); married 1st Pierre Gauultier LaVerendrye and 2nd marriage 1755 Louis Joseph Gaultier, sieur La Verendrye.

The French Assinipoval Metis are trading to the upper regions of the Saskatchewan River system, North West Territories. Daniel William Harmon (1778-1845) in 1805 reported that a French Missionary lived in the vicinity of Fort Assiniboine for a number of years instructing the Natives in the Christian Religion.

Fort des Prairies on the Saskatchewan River near Nepowewin is first constructed this year. This name would be applied to various different establishments after this date. If two forts are constructed on the prairies then they called one the upper and the other the lower Fort des Prairies.

General Edward Bradock (1695-1755) and a powerful force from New England tried to take Fort Duquesne, (Allegheny, Pennsylvania) located at the confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers, at the site of present day Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and are soundly defeated by the French. The English would recover the Fort in 1758, but it was burnt before being abandoned. It would be rebuilt in 1761 by the British and called Fort Pitt.

General Edward Bradock (1695-1755) commanded 1,500 British regulars and the balance Provincials making a force of 2,150. They attacked the French Fort Duguesne (Pittsburgh) on the Ohio River. The massacre of the British-American force is by a much smaller French-Canadian force. Only 500 Americans escaped the slaughter. It is noteworthy that this Fort was originally built by the British in 1753 and captured and completed in 1754 by the French. The French, commanded by Captain Dumas and Metis Charles Langlade of Green Bay, New France (Wisconsin), includes 75 French regulars. George Washington, (1732-1799), a survivor, recounts that three hundred English settlers in wagons are fleeing New France in the Ohio. Reports confirm that the Natives are repelling the invasion on all fronts. During the next two years, the resistance to invasion continued and Chesterfield wrote: We are no longer a Nation. The Indian Nations only desired liberty and freedom for all peace loving peoples and the Government to live within negotiated settlements. George Washington (1732-1799), would start the genocide program against these Native peoples.

A French Fort is built at Prairie du Chien.

Fort Tiscondergoa (Carillon), a place between the waters, is built by the French at the confluence of Lakes Champlain and George in upper New York. The Fort was abandoned in 1759. It was briefly reoccupied in 1777 for a few months.

The English stopped at Fort Paskoyac and (I)- Anthony Henday (HBC service 1750-1762) wrote that the French spoke several languages to perfection. They have the advantage of us in every shape and if they had Brazil tobacco they would entirely cut off our trade. He still managed to return with seventy canoes that he traded on their return trip. Henday returned to York (Manitoba), June 23 and couldn't possibly have had more canoes than he started with as the best furs were traded to the French under his nose. It is highly likely that all four versions are forgeries by (I)-Andrew Graham (1733-1815), a sloop masters servant, done for political reasons. One forgery is dated 1755-56 rather than 1754-55 and is obviously not by (I)-Andrew Graham. The London office did not hold (I)-Anthony Henday (HBC service 1750-1762) as being very expert, even though they were dealing with forged documents. Upon his return he was sent out on another year venture but returned in a week, which further supports his incompetence. In 1756 (I)- Anthony Henday (HBC service 1750-1762) again failed to return to the Blackfoot saying sickness forced him back. It is alleged that Henday and Joseph Smith ventured into Blackfoot territory in 1759-60, but no record supports this claim. (I)- Anthony Henday (HBC service 1750-1762) retired in 1762.

January: Henley House is abandoned this year. The attack by angry Indians on Henley House was due to their women being kept at the post while their own access was denied. This is a clear violation of a social contract involving exchanging of women for post rights. "The Cree marriage rights might seem frivolous", William Falloner wrote.

The Rev. Peter Fontaine of Virginia wrote: Many base wretches amongst us take up with Negro women, by which means the country swarms with mulatto bastards, and these mulattoes, if but three generations removed from the black father or mother, may, by the indulgence of the laws of the country, intermarry with the white people and actually do so every day. Now, if instead of this abominable practice, which hath polluted the blood of many amongst us, we had taken Indian wives in the first place, it would have made them some compensation for their lands. We should become rightful heirs to their lands and should not have smutted our blood.

A French officer said: They (Metis & Coureurs des Bois) are not thrifty and take no care for the future, being too fond of their freedom and their independence.

They try to strive to gain their esteem and to please them. Many of them speak their language, having passed part of their life amongst them at the trading posts.
