The Migration of Voyageurs from Drummond Island to Penetanguishene in 1828.


Cat No.:   CAG098:

Content Description: Includes a List of the Drummond Island Voyageurs.

The author, A. C. Osborne provides the first printed account of the transfer of the Voyageurs associated with the military establishment holding St. Joseph’s Island in the St Lawrence in 1828 when it was relocated to the naval station at Penetanguishene at the southern end of Georgian Bay.

Following these interviews is an alphabetical “List of the Drummond Island Voyageurs” each name in the list being accompanied by notes as to what was known about them at that time (C1901).


Much of the account results from personal interviews of those of the original Voyageurs who still survived and is at pains to establish the various family relationships and the efforts of the group’s members to adapt to the new existence. Six of these interviews are supported by individual narratives in near verbatim format.
