Thanks to Gina Smith, we have a list of the militia volunteers for the Chateauguay (Basin) Company in the Militia during the Rebellion of 1838. These have been extracted from the paylists in the National Archives in Ottawa (NAC film # B-2977). The Chateauguay Basin and Village and the rural area surrounding it in 1838 was part of the County of Laprairie. It is not known if this company was part of a Laprairie Battalion or the nearby Beauharnois Battalion. Historical accounts indicate that this company was in the thick of the actions during that ill-fated rebellion.

As is usual with transcriptions from old handwriting, there are most likely some mis-interpretations of the spelling. Names followed by an (X) are shown as signing for their pay with an X. I have not provided a search tool for this page since the various name spellings would make such a tool ineffective in my view. If you wish to use a search tool, try the "FIND" or "FIND IN PAGE" command on your browser.
