Hon. Auguste Harrison, Ste.-Anne

Links to Biographies:

Biographical Notes:

Born 9 March 1836 to Thomas Harrison (Métis) and Apolline ‘Pauline’ Lagimonière/ Lagimodiere. It appears that Auguste is sometimes confused with his father and thus identified as Thomas Auguste Harrison. It seems probable that is was Auguste’s father who attended the Convention of Forty in 1870 and angered Riel (who referred to him as ‘Tom’).[1] It was Auguste, however, who subsequently served as a member of the Legislative Assembly of Assiniboia that was formed out of that Convention.

On 3 February 1863, at St Boniface, Auguste married  Lucie Champagne, a daughter of Emmanuel Beaugrand dit Champagne and Marguerite Larocque. His sister, Marie-Anne Harrison had married, c. 1860, Charles Nolin, who was politically active in the settlement and at odds with Louis Riel during 1869, and, presumably, was at odds with Harrison as of 1870.[2] Nevertheless, Nolin and Harrison afterward cooperated in arranging for land concessions — as a “Reserve des Metis”  announced in local newspapers of 1871 and 1872.[3]

Their relationship was perhaps not always genial. A notice in the Manitoba Herald published 20 January 1877 reported “Some days ago Mr Charles Nolin, of Point du Chene, while engaged in a fight with August Harrison, had three of his fingers badly bitten and it is now feared that amputation will be necessary.” (Whether the article had any basis in fact is currently unknown.)

By 1872 Harrison appears to have been appointed a Justice of the Peace.[4] In 1886, he was a director of the Agricultural Society, La Verandrye district.[5] In 1887 he was a founding member of the Union Nationale Métisse Saint-Joseph de Manitoba — a group concerned that Métis history be preserved and accurately presented. Auguste was also active in cultural events in his community [see newspaper reports: Le Manitoba (27 June 1889); Le Manitoba (3 June 1891); Libre Parole (27 July 1916)].

  1. Helen Ann Cameron married Augustin Nolin, her father was Duncan Cameron and mother was a ojibwa of the Loon Clan. Do you have any further information on Duncan Cameron and other children. I understand he also had a daughter, Mary, she married a Henri Sayer.

  2. Patrick Harrison says:

    Edward Harrison’s first two sons from his first marriage to Josepthe CREE were Joseph Chawner Harrison and William Rupert Harrison. According to the Quebec, Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967
    Joseph and William were baptised in November 9, 1806 by Jehosaphat Mountain of the Anglican Cathedral Holy Trinity Church in Quebec (Quebec City), Québec (Quebec). The text of the baptism says their father is Edward Harrison, Trader of the Northwest Territory of the Upper Canada. Joseph was age 11, William age abt 7 years old. These two son’s went on to Montreal, Quebec to establish many large families, of which I am related.

    Edward Harrison’s own father was Edward Harrison SR who is also very well known in Candian History as per this link: http://www.biographi.ca/009004-119.01-e.php?BioId=36058. Edward Sr also had 2 sisters Margaret Harrison b. 1766 and Charlotte Harrison b. 1770 d. 1790, a brother Samuel Harrison SR b. 1772 d. 1842. Samuel Harrison is a very well known participant in the Troise-Rivers, and his descendants spread out through Matane, Quebec, Canada.

    • Claude Harrisson says:

      I search info for Samuel Harrison SR b. 1772 d. 1842. I search in Trois-Rivières for info and i have not retrace this info. Samuel is my ancestor of Matane.

  3. Patrick Harrison. says:

    Another bit of information to pass on to you: Marquerite Harrison who married Francois Bruneau, according to the 1851 Census of Canada East, Canada West, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia
    about Marguerite Bruneau indicates her birth as abt 1813 in Quebec.

  4. Wilfred Burton says:

    Helen Anne Cameron’s father was John Dugald Cameron, not Duncan Cameron.

  5. Gilles C. Saindon says:

    No. 4 Remie (nicknamed money) Harrison was my great uncle he was actually killed by lightning while mowing hay , his mother witnessed it she was sitting nearby in the shade of the haywagon when one bolt hit the horses ,current followed the reins and killed the horses and him instantly. The area where he was killed was referred to as pronounced as (marais de money) by the older people until a few years ago.
