Sturgeon & St Albert Histories,
the white settler's story

This was part of the area known as Rupert's Land, which the government of Canada acquired from the Hudson's Bay Company in 1870. The land was surveyed for settlement, and settlers poured in from all over. The Metis and Native Indians continued to live here, but they were surrounded by settlers, who mostly spoke English. The published histories of the area are nearly all written in English and told from the settlers' point of view. Some are in French, as the settlers in much of this area were French-speaking (St. Albert, Morinville, Legal, Villeneuve, etc.)
