Victoria Voltigeurs

In a letter of March 5, 1859, James Douglas informs Joseph Despard Pemberton that Nicholas Auger, John Lemon and Jean Baptiste Jollibois are each entitled to 20 acre grants on Portage Inlet (part of present day Victoria) in recognition for their service as Victoria Voltigeurs. The Voltigeurs were primarily French Canadian half-breeds that Douglas referred to as half-white. They were the first official Police force in the history of BC.
