In 1823, Peter Robinson brought almost 500 settlers from Ireland to an area just west of Ottawa, Canada. They came 
on two ships, the Hebe and the Stakesby. There are many thousands of their descendants in Ottawa 
and the Ottawa Valley today. The settlers had been residents of the troubled area of Northern County Cork. Some 
came from nearby Tipperary and County Limerick.

Two years later, in 1825, Robinson brought more settlers but this time to the Peterborough area of Ontario. If you go back to my main genealogy web page, you'll find links to lists of these settlers and their ships.
