Hon. Jean-Baptiste Tourond, St. Norbert (north)

Existing biography:

 

Biographical Notes:

 

Born 1 June1838,[1] in the parish of St. Boniface, Red River Settlement, Jean-Baptiste Tourond’s mother was Rosalie Laderoute (Métis).[2] She had married Joseph Tourond, who, according to family lore, “had come with his brother from the neighbourhood of Castle Tourond in France to homestead along the Red River near St. Boniface.”[3]

In 1861 Jean-Baptiste Tourond married Angélique Delorme (Métis), a daughter of Joseph Delorme (Canadian) and Brigitte Plouf dit Villebrun (Métis).[4] Tourond and Angelique farmed on lot 42, St. Norbert north.[5] By 1869 they had five children.

Tourond was among those who, on 11 October 1869, stopped the Canadian survey crew from trespassing on settlement land in St. Vital. He was one of the original members of Le Comité National des Métis de la Rivière Rouge, and, as a delegate of St. Norbert parish, he attended the ‘Convention of Twenty-four,’ which began 16 November in the Court House at Fort Garry.[6] Tourond continued to represent St. Norbert in La Grande Convention/Convention of Forty, and the Legislative Assembly of Assiniboia.[7] Tourond’s participation in community affairs did not diminish with the passage of the Manitoba Act.

Almost immediately after the formation of the province, Tourond was among the group organized by Rev. Ritchot and Joseph Dubuc to lay claim to land along Rivière-aux-Rats for a new parish — to forestall any disallowance of such settlement expansion by anticipated Canadian government surveys. Tourond was a knowledgeable farmer and along with the others judged this to be an extremely fertile area.[8] The settlement proved successful, and later became known as St-Pierre-Jolys’.

A dedicated farmer, Tourond promoted agricultural development. In April of 1871 he helped to form the Societé Agricole du Comté de Provencher, and was appointed one of its directors.[9] That same year he was appointed to the Board of Directors of the Provincial Agricultural Association.[10] By 1877 he held the patent for some 246 acres of farmland, and up until at least 1882 he exhibited produce in Agricultural Society fairs – winning prizes for entries that ranged from cabbages to dairy cows.[11] He served as an Agricultural Society director as late as 1889.

Tourond was respected as more than an authority on farming. In 1871 he was named Commissaire d’Ecole for St. Norbert and oversaw the construction of a new school house.[12] Concurrently, he served as a Justice of the Peace for the judicial district of Provencher — to least 1876 when he was appointed its deputy sheriff.[13]

Throughout these busy years, Tourond retained his interest in political activism. He served as secretary at the assembly called at the home of Louis Riel on 28 September 1871 to discuss the threat of Fenian invasion.[14] It was Tourond who wrote to Governor Archibald, informing him of the assembly’s decision to “offer him the services of the Métis to uphold the cause of the authority of Canada over the country it has at last acquired.”[15]

In 1872 Tourond participated in a public assembly held in St. Norbert. Residents of that parish, St. Vital, St. Boniface, and Ste. Agathe formulated measures designed protect wood lots that they believed had been set aside as part of the lands allotted to Métis settlers by virtue of stipulations framed by Legislative Assembly of Assiniboia and incorporated into the Manitoba Act.[16] That same year, Tourond was present at the meeting held to help George Etienne Cartier obtain a seat in the House of Commons at Ottawa as representative of the riding of Provencher.[17]

In 1873, in light of a lack of recognition by the Canadian government of original settler ownership of the ‘Two-Mile Privilege’ – an entitlement which the Legislative Assembly of Assiniboia had worked hard to secure — Tourand was among those who organized to formulate resolutions and to petition for redress.[18] He also attended an assembly of delegates from twelve electoral parishes, convened to discuss the arrest of Ambroise-D. Lépine – which arrest Tourond appears to have protested by refusing to take his seat on the grand jury, Court of Queen’s Bench.[19]

In 1878 Tourond was again working towards securing redress from the Department of the Interior, Government of Canada, for Red River settlers who had been denied patent on their lands. As secretary to an assembly held in St. Norbert, Tourond recorded protests and forwarded them, in the form of resolutions, to the Minister of the Interior, the Free Press, and Le Métis.[20]

At some point prior to 1881, Tourond’s wife Angélique died, for he remarried in that year to Régina Allard (daughter of Joseph Allard and Julie Langevin).[21] Further research is needed to bring additional details of his life to light. To date historians have shown little interest describing Tourond’s contributions to Manitoba’s history. When his name does figure in historical descriptions, it is ascribed to an illiterate and combative character, but if such a “fiery and militant Metis, more at home on the buffalo range than in the council-room,” with the name Jean-Baptiste Tourond ever existed, he must have been somebody else.[22] The honorable and literate member from St. Norbert held relatively moderate views, saw value in tilling fields, and garnered respect in the council rooms he attended. Tourond died on 27 April 1891 at Ritchot, Manitoba.

See LAC, scrip affidavit, ‘Tourond, Jean Baptise; born 1 June 1838.’ Morice, A critical history of the Red River insurrection, 222, notes that ‘Touron,’ is the spelling used by Begg, ‘Touton’ by R.G.

  1. Leah Tourond says:

    The ancestry of Joseph Touron was published in Le Nouveau Monde, on March 29 1869 showing his father was Jacque Touron and mother Louise LeCompte. Beyond that we look to the genealogical work of Cyprien Tanguay, and the National Archives of Quebec records regarding Pierre Touron dit Lombard first mentioned in Quebec records in 1734 …he was a Faux Saunier or Salt Smuggler sent to Quebec from France. Le Nouveau Monde was a Catholic Church Journal.

        hi there
        My grandmother was Cecile Tourand and she married Henri Harel and they lived in Marchand, Manitoba. I guess her dad was Isidore Tourand & Anne Vermetti, they lived in the Red River Settlement area. I would like to know if these are my great-grandparents?
        My dad was from Marchand and his family had 10 kids.
        I know I have Meti blood.
        Thanks for the information. Where is the Tourand Castle in France?

      • hallnjean says:

        Hi, happy to meet you Jean,
        From what you’ve said, it looks to me as though your great grandparents were Isadore Tourond and Anne Vermette – one way to confirm this would be to contact the St, Boniface Historical Society. They can trace your genealogy and supply you with an official Métis family tree. Their web page is http://shsb.mb.ca/en/genealogy

        My guess would be that the Tourond Castle that family stories refer to would be the Castle Touron located in the community of Touron-sur-Rhone, in the Ardèche département of the Rhone-Alps. It’s a feudal castle, built into a rock overlooking the town and the river, and its foundations date back to the 10th Century.

      Hi
      Does the name Pierre Touron the same as Tourond?
      Thanks Jean

  2. Jean Grose Bullard says:

    Thank you for the information. What is your relationship to Tourond’s?
    I am so glad you answered my e-mail. I would like to save this letter from you, but can not seem to print it. Where do you live?
    I am so happy you wrote me.
    I have sent away for my grandfather’s birth cert from Quebec. I am anxious to find out about his parents. I think they came from France.
    Thank-you again Norma
    Love and God Bless Jean

  4. jean grose bullard says:

And it does confirm that my great grand parents are Isidore Tourond/ Annie Vermette from Cecile Tourond(Henri-Harel)my grand-parents on Charles Harel(my father’s side.They did a terrific job.
