Vanasse Marriages in Ontario .


Attention Suzanne Stinson - I am having trouble emailing you .B Vanasse

 .

Most Vanasses who immigrated to Ontario in the late 1800s went to the capital region of Ottawa -Hull , Pembroke and Nipissing . This website seeks to dea with these families along with the families of the Gatineau and Pontiac areas of Quebec which border on Ontario .

 

In tracing these families I will be using the census records of 1881 , 1901 and 1911 - also the marriage records from the published repertoires to which I have access .

Many of these Vanasse families have used variations of the name most commonly Venasse and Venance .

Most of these families are traced from a handful of couples .
Louis Charles Vanasse and Marie Madeleine Bergeron
and son
--Alexis Vanasse and Madeleine Branconnier who were married in Aylmer Quebec in 1842.
 
Louis Charles and family from Louiseville were no doubt the earliest Vanasse family in the area . Outside of some church weddings there is little information about this family . 
In 1851 Louis Charles and family are in Templeton Quebec , Alexis , his son and his family are also there .
 
Who are these Vanases below ? It is my theory that this is Louis Charles ' brother married to Louise Beland . They also had a daughter Claire who might have been the Clarisse who married Joseph Arcand .
 
In 1851 Charles was in South Gower
Venos , Charles Upper Canada age 53
              Lezet age 43
              Lewis age 22
              Peter age 14
