Lochaber Township, Quebec
French surnames recorded at Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, in the 1850's



December 20, 2004:

In the early 1850's the following records appear at Notre Dame Cathedral in Ottawa.
Either these families moved from Lochaber Township (north side of the Ottawa River)
to Ottawa, or, a missionary from Ottawa travelled to Lochaber to perform marriages 
and baptisms there. Lochaber Township pioneers had connections to the Scots who
settled in Glengarry Township just to the south. Lochaber Township may have earlier
been part of the seigneury of Montebello.
