POITRAS


From Canadien to Red River Settlers c. 1823

1. POITRAS, Michel. Born 16 September 1729 Ste. Foye QC, to Joseph Lucien POITRAS (born to first-generation Canadien Jean POITRAS and Marie St. Vie) and Geneviève MOISAN; married 9 November 1751 Ste. Foye QC; died 27 September 1804 L’Islet, Montmagny QC.

– sp. ARNOULD/ ARNOUL/ HENAULT/ HARNOIS de/ dit VILLENEUVE, Marguerite.  Born  22 April 1728 Ste. Foy QC; died after 1765.

2. POITRAS, André Henri. Born 10 February 1751/ 1757/ 1760/ 1763 Ste. Foy QC; apparently in the North West before 1783; began North West Company career 1793 Fort Espérance [SK]; 1st married c. 1793; 2d married 1802 Fort Esperance [SK]; at Qu’Appelle [SK] 1804; commis/ clerk 1804 ‘Upper Red’/ Assiniboine River; ‘Freeman’ 1818; 2d marriage formalized 1823 St. Boniface, Red River; settled c. 1823/ 1824 Grantown, White Horse Plains, Red River; died c. 1830/ 1831 St. Joseph, Pembina, Dakota Terr.

Eliott Coues ed., New Light on the Early History of the Greater Northwest vol. 1 (1897), 301, mentions POITRA/ POITRAS c. 1804 and muses he is “probably the same as one … who wintered at Fort L’Espérance, 1793-94” (and, in the “Index,” p. 998, observes “two of this name, father and son” were at Red River in 1814). L.R. Masson ed., Les Bourgeois de la Compagnie du Nord-Quest vol. 1 (1889), mentions POITRAS on pp. 286, 288 [reference to “Vieux Frène, Camarade de Paulette—Poitras’ father”], 292, 294 [Poitras purchases a slave girl], and 402. The HBC Archives’ biographical sheet interprets the mentions as showing one individual named Andre Henri POITRAS, with one career (and therefore, 2 wives). However, Lisa Poitras, “The Poitras Family,” Canada Tree 2, no. 3 (February 1995), avows there were two different individuals, father and son, both named Andre POITRAS, both NWC employees serving in the same area, “in the 1790s and early 1800s respectively” (which Masson, 288, might support). According to that interpretation, Andre Henri POITRAS, married an unidentified Indigenous woman, while his son, André POITRAS, married Marguerite GRANT. The children of the father and son might, therefore, be conflated in the list below (which would explain some of the wild contradictions in dates—there might be grandchildren here that are listed as siblings of their aunts or uncles, or who are listed as the same person as an aunt or uncle). All comments leading to resolving issues of mistaken identity are welcome.

– sp. Unidentified Indigenous woman. By one family tradition this is Louise, a Nakoda/ Assiniboine First Nations woman.

– sp. GRANT, Marie Marguerite. Possibly born to Cuthbert GRANT Sr. (of Scotland) and an unidentified Nakoda-Cree woman (misidentified online as ‘Utiniwasis’— a recently coined name); married 1802; apparently died c. 9 April 1866; buried 10 April 1866 St. Boniface, Red River.

There is uncertainty about the birth date and parentage of the 2d wife of André Henri POITRAS—she is easily confused with a cousin, Marguerite GRANT who was the daughter of one of Cuthbert GRANT Sr.’s brothers, and, some genealogies assume POITRAS’ wife was actually Cuthbert GRANT Sr.’s widow (born 1775). Other genealogies list her as Cuthbert GRANT Jr.’s sister, born c. 1790. If Marguerite GRANT-POITRAS was one of the younger women of the GRANT name, she may have been born  c. 1783, 1785, 1789, 1790, or 1793;  There is additional confusion surrounding the marriages of all these Marguerite GRANTs:

• someone among them married Paul PAUL, or, Francois PAUL. [Marguerite, a daughter of Peter GRANT?];

• one of them married Michel MONETTE BELHUMUER (born 15 April 1766, Ste. Genevieve, Berthierville, Chambly, Quebec). [1st marriage of Cuthbert GRANT Sr.’s daughter? born 1789? Or, 2d marriage, after 1799, of Cuthbert GRANT Sr.’s widow?];

• and one of them married Francois PERREAULT MORIN;

• in addition, there was a Marguerite GRANT married to a Baptiste POITRAS.
