I think to say that censu takers bastardised the name is a bit harsh. Rather, I would say that the dialectal pronunciation of the name Pelletier, Peltier, was fairly accurately recorded by the record keepers.
It was quite common for a T to be pronounced as a K in some French dialects.
Hence Pelletier, Peltier = Pelky, Pelkie
