Margaret BYRNE and sons Patrick and John
From County Wicklow, Ireland to Bytown / Ottawa, Ontario, Canada in 1852
January 26, 2009:
Since I have these Clonmore records, I've been coming at the families on the CD sometimes
Attached is the emigration notice for Margaret Byrne; the children's Clonmore baptisms
show the parents of this Ballyraghine family to be Owen Byrne and Margaret Byrne.
And also attached are the Ottawa marriage records (same page) for Patrick and John Byrne,
sons of Owen and Margaret Byrne. (We discussed these two earlier, I think, but I hope I
haven't already given you the conclusion below!)
If these two sons were in Bytown, then the rest of the family must have arrived in 1852 as
well, too late for the 1851 census. So I believe we now have another FW family for our chart.
I'll see if I can find some of the others, and then I'll send you the listing for the chart.
I've gone through the Drouin records for Ottawa without finding the rest of the family, so
I'll go with Margaret, John and Patrick for the moment. Their marriage records are below,
and the ones for Patrick are interesting:
St. Patrick's Church:
Marriage of Patrick Burns, 25, s/o Owen Burns and Margaret Burns, to Mary Hayden, 26,
d/o Thomas Hayden and Catherine Hayes
Wit: Lawrence Burns and Joanna Kennedy
Would this be one of your Lawrence Burns? (I think that this Lawrence and Joanna are from
Fallowfield / Jockvale ... Al)
Marriage of Patrick Burns, 36, husband of the late Mary Headen, to Mary Linnon, 33, d/o
John Lennon and Ann Coghlan
Wit: Denis Burns and ---- Linnon
[A more complete record is given on Bytown or Bust, showing Denis Burns as "groom's third
cousin," and Catherine Linnon as "the bride's sister."]
Marriage of John Burns, 33, s/o Owen Burns and Margaret Burns, to Maria O'Connor, d/o
Francis O'Connor and Ann Nolan
Wit: Margaret Burns and Edward Mc-----
The emigration record for this family lists their residence as Ballyraheen, but the
children's baptisms were in that list I sent you the other day, and they lived in
Ballynultagh then. Not very important, as John says the two townlands were virtually the same.
