BOOK - First Métis Families of Quebec. Volume 4: Descendants of Pierre Couc dit Lafleur and Marie Mitequamigoukoue, an Algonquin
By Gail Morin
Published by Genealogical Publishing Company, Baltimore, 2015

The term Métis originally referred to the offspring produced from the intermarriage of early French fur traders with Canadian Native Americans. Later, there were also Anglo Métis (known as "Countryborn")--children of Scottish, English, and other European fathers and indigenous mothers. The Métis were also formerly known as half-breeds or mixed-bloods. Today, the French and Anglo Métis cultures have essentially merged into a distinct group with official recognition as one of the three Aboriginal Peoples of Canada.

The first Frenchman known to have Métis offspring was Jean Nicolet de Belleborne, who arrived in Quebec in 1618. His informal or country marriage to a Nipissing woman resulted in the birth in 1628 of a daughter, Madeleine or Euphrosine Nicolet. This union resulted in generations of descendants in Canada and the United States that continue today.

From the 1640s to the 1740s, only fifty-six Métis marriages were officially recorded in French records. There are probably many unrecorded Métis or mixed blood families that are lost for now. This series traces the descendants of those Métis families who ultimately settled in the western part of the North American continent. Volume 1, an overview volume, traces all fifty-six recorded Métis families for three generations. Volume 2 followed all of Madeleine or Euphrosine Nicolet’s descendants for ten generations. Volume 3 follows the progeny of Martin Prevost and the Huron tribeswoman Marie Olivier Sylvestre Manitouabeouich, who settled and farmed near Beauport Quebec.

This volume in the series traces the progeny of Pierre Couc dit Lafleur, the head of a fur trade and merchant family, who married Marie Mitequamigoukoue in 1657, in the Yamaska region of Quebec. This couple had at least seven children, including two who took the surname Montour.

Richly detailed, fully sourced, and indexed, this ongoing series must be regarded as the starting point for Métis genealogy.

This is the forth volume in the First Métis Families of Quebec, 1622-1748 series which include Pages: 354
