Are all Lapierres related?

Are all Lapierres related?

Does anyone know how many original Lapierre families came to Canada? I know of Francois Lapierre of Acadia.

I'm particularly interested in Lapier(re)s on the south side of the St Lawrence, in the vicinity of St. Hyacinthe, circa 1800. Are they all related?

My La Pierre family (on my mom's side) came from Quebec into St. Lawrence County around that time. I know there are many cousins out there. I only know a couple. I have a good deal of info on the family that settled in Canton thanks to my cousin Barry.

I have traced this particular branch of the Lapier(re)s back to:
Joseph Lapier, bc 1803 Lower Canada (The family Bible said St Hyacinthe). He was married to Elizabeth, bc 1799 in England, died 19 Dec 1875 Williamsburg Twp., Ont. They were in Matilda Twp., Dundas Co., Ont. for the 1851 census with children Joseph (bc 1836), Sophia (bc 1838), James (bc 1840) and Mary (bc1842). All children were born Upper Canada and were W. Methodist, like their mother. Joseph was R. Catholic.

The 1851 census also includes Peter Lapier, bc 1802, with his wife Sophia in Osnabruck Twp., and Solomon Lapier, bc 1815 Quebec, living in Williamsburg Twp. Possibly brothers of Joseph.

Haven't had any luck tracing the family back further.

As far as I could find out, Francois De Laroche ( dit Lapierre ) was the only immigrant to Canada.

Thanks. I understand Lapierres fled Acadia to Quebec, New Brunswick and PEI. As well, some were relocated in the vicinity of West Chezzetcook & Grand Desert, across the harbour from Halifax.

The assistant at the Annapolis Heritage Society Genealogy Centre suggested researching Lapierres at the Admiral Digby Museum, Digby, Nova Scotia. I wasn't able to get there, but perhaps someone else might find it useful.

I know my father's ancestors came from France, 4 brothers, they settled in Matilda township as well. They were basically kicked out of France for being french protestants..I believe its known as Hugonauts?? They settled there and bascially stayed in that area, I will check with my dad as I don't know the names..but i do know there are lots of Lapier's and Lapierre's still living in that area, in fact, we are having the 1st ever reunion this summer!

My great grandmother was Ellen Lapier (LaPierre, LaPier, Lapierre) born 1858, married to Alexander Mathieson Paul in 1877 and immigrated to Wisconsin in 1881. I'm know she had a sister named Ann and a brother named Peter, probably more siblings, but that is all that I know of. I would be grateful if anyone can help me in my search. I am particularly interested in the native Indian that is in the Lapiere line.
hoping to hear
