New January 8, 2014: We now have a local (Eastern Ontario) web page for the 1798 Rebellion in Ireland. Annette Code has done a lot of work regarding her Codd / Code ancestors who emigrated from Lord Fitzwilliam's Estate in South West County Wicklow. Many people came to this area from the area in Ireland where three counties meet -- County Carlow, County Wexford and County Wicklow. Background material for this large emigration can be found in: The Rebellion in Wicklow, 1798, by Ruan O'Donnell, Irish Academic Press, 1998, ISBN 0-7165-2694-8 Emigration from South Leinster to Eastern Upper Canada, Bruce Elliott, in Kevin Whelan, ed. Wexford: History and Society (Dublin: Geography Publications, 1987) pp. 422-446 (Carleton University Library DA990.W5W49 - 5th Floor) ISBN 0 906602 0 68 Anne Burgess is also involved in a large project detailing the assisted emigration from Lord Fitzwilliam's Estate during the period 1847-1854. Her work is based on Surplus People: The Fitzwilliam Clearances, 1847-1856 (County Wicklow) by Jim Rees, Collins Press, Cork, 2000, ISBN 1-898256-93-4 Both Anne and Annette have done extensive research in Ireland. Here are a couple of e-mails from Annette Code: Hello Al: I just had an e-mail sent to me about your south Wicklow project. I thought I would tell you I do have a bit of information about the Coolatin Estates that I can send to you, but mostly it I was looking for the earlier familes of those towns within the Estates. I was researching the Codd (Code) family. I am going back to Ireland this September to pursue both parish records and the Coolattin Estate both in Dublin and at the Sheffield, UK Archives where they have thousands of estate records. At that time I would just run my finger down the page or microfiche and pick out the names I was looking for. There was also information at the National Library in Dublin. The day I was at Sheffield I had difficulties as their photocopier was not working so only came away with a couple of pages of documents only to do with the familes I was obtaining information on. Very little were about the Codd's as they probably were only the sub-let-tenants not the main lessor. However, some of the records show the names of the families of these sub-let-tenants. Are you interested in this information, either for your project or perhaps under a separate heading of Coolattin. The things I have are the 1798 Rebellion Claims and Compensations and two CD's of the Memorials on graves, one is Cantwell's. My understanding is that after William Wainwright was manager of the Coolattin Estate and after his death Robert Chaloner became manager and apparently kept meticulous records not just of surnames or head of family but much more detail, so if that is true I might be able to get some valuable information as I am going to spend 3 days at Sheffield Archives just going through the Estate Records. I would only go up as far as 1846 when Jim Rees's research started. I have e-mail corresponded with Jim Rees and he will be back in touch once his new book is in print. If any of the above makes sense please get back to me. ... Annette Code Good morning: I am so curious about the Coolattin families and that is one of the reasons I'm going back to Dublin this fall. I agree with you on that reasoning of 99% were from that part of Wicklow and since the Codd family were from all the estate areas, Fitzwilliam had 6 estates in Ireland but also had family in the northern tip of Wexford where Wicklow, Wexford and Carlow meet some of their relatives from Wexford came later probably due to good reports from earlier emigrants. Certainly all the Codd / Code / Coad's were from that area of Wicklow, but others did stay and continue living there to this day. On www.theshipslist.com are several pages of passengers 1825 approx. from Wicklow both a list of Catholics and Protestants, I can pick out all the neighbours/relatives from both Wicklow and Lanark Co. Other surnames are DAGG and JACKSON. These lists would be a good link or page for anything to do with Coolattin. ... Annette Code

May 4, 2007: Hello Al: I hope you got the information I sent you OK, when I don't hear I wonder if things just go into cyberspace. There is a new website for Carnew which contains some Griffiths and some Rockingham papers - Coolattin which may be a good link for that Coolattin page: www.Carnewwhs.com and www.kennytree.com , Joe Kenny's web site (John Kenny co-authored Anne Burgess' article on the Fitzwilliam Estate emigrants, 1847-1854 There is an Arklow Parish census on www.censusfinder.com, follow the buttons. I just posted some Byrne information on rootsweb as I try and help people looking for information, I have the Cantwell's CD's and the 1798 Rebellion CD which if a person is lucky identifies that all important Parish. I haven't contacted Anne but would like to know if she wouldn't mind my doing that, also since I'm going back to Dublin in September there is no point in my doubling up and getting the same info she has got already. ...

May 22, 2007: WEXFORD - HISTORY AND SOCIETY ed. by Kevin Whelan 1987 located on Cantwell Memorial CD. page 427 (Period 1817) "By October word of the Ellys' activities had reached Rathdrum, county of Wicklow, for Isaac Saul Jr. of that place wrote to the Colonial Office seeking information on behalf of many respectable families in and about the town who asked him what he knew about 'the encouragement': 'they tell me that there is a Person taking down such Families Names as wish to Emigrat (sic) in Carnew a small town about 20 miles from this, but that they do not know his Name also I would of written to him to know the truth and not to have troubled Your Lordship'. Bathurst's reply was more positive than the response to the Rev. Mr. Vaughan had received, for it stated that encouragement was not being offered at the moment mereley because the season was too far advanced. However, the Colonial Secretary informed Saul that any person taking down names was altogether unauthorised by the government. On p. 426 a note on the ELLYS (of New Ross) (Ellis / Elly ?) The Ellys were brothers of a Quaker merchant who imported timber and staves from Quebec. Samuel Elly Jr. commonly shipped out passengers in the vessels he chartered to bring timber to Ireland, so it was natural for the residents of Wexford to seek advice and information from his family. ...

July 19, 2007: Hello Al: I have a booklet put out by the Dun Laoghaire Genealogical Society in 1997. It is the names of persons who signed a petition, called a memorial at that time dated 1837, for Shillelagh & Ballinacor South. Co. Wicklow. These are extracted from Official Papers (O.P.1837/133) National Archives of Ireland, Dublin. Memorials were a common form of petition to the authorities during the 19th. century. This memorial, containing the names and addresses of 1500 people from south west County Wicklow, sought a change in the location of the Quarter sessions town from Baltinglass in the west to Tinahely in the south of the county in 1837. The date of the memorial is intermediate between the Tithe Applotment Books and the primary valuation Survey (Griffith's Valuation) and covers an area which includes the vast Coolattin Estates of the Earl of Fitzwilliam which witnessed large scale assisted emigration between 1847 and 1856. The following is an extract showing the names on the Coolattin Estate but not the surrounding lands owned by Earl Fitzwilliam. He had six estates in Ireland under the company name of Coolattin Estates. All the surrounding areas were in the estates too but not mentioned here. I will do look ups in this document if anyone wants to contact me at codeannette@shaw.ca I have already typed out the Byrne names - 3 pages from this book, but it would be too onerous a task to do all.

July 29, 2007: Hi: Just wanting to try this. I have only the people I extracted from the records. We don't have what I would call a group - just a number of people who came across each other in a variety of ways. Most of the Codd's in Lanark Co. were from Aghold / Aghowle and Shillelagh they are definitely related to the Codd's of Carnew but we have never been able to determine an exact link. I am going to Dublin in September to find what few Parish records available might clear this up, but if I remember rightly the records for Carnew only go back to 1808. William and Hannah were married there in 1811 and I didn't come across that particular record, there might be witnesses written down that might prove some kind of connection. Let me know if this comes over OK. ... Annette Surnames for search engine: Carter, James, Chamney / Chamley, Jackson, Carnew Burials from 1836 - Church of Ireland

March 6, 2008: Thanks to Annette for the following information and photos of St Michael's, Church of Ireland (Anglican) in Aghold, County Wicklow (on the Coolattin Estate): St.Michael's Church, Aghold. Aghold, anciently Aghowle and in Irish manuscripts, Achad Abhla, Achadhabhla or Achadh-n-abhall means the field of the apple trees. The name Aghold was used in the Vestry Minutes of 1707. The first stone of St. Michael's Church was laid in the year 1716 by the Rev. Thomas Barton, Rector. It appears that the old Church at Aghowle had fallen into disrepair and as it did not occupy a central position in the Parishes of Aghold, Mullinacuffe "Creecreen" and Liscolman it was decided to build the new Church. The total cost of building the new church appears to have been 150 Pounds, 1 shilling and 9 pence. Excerpts taken from the book "The field of the Apple Trees, Aghold 1716-1991" by Richard Codd.

Annette Code note: going by seeing leases and the arrears, these if like other were sometimes many years in arrears before getting to the ejectment for non payment of rent, Earl Fitzwilliam was a very forgiving and generous landlord and charged the lowest rents. William Wainwright a trusted and much loved Estate Agent was replaced by William Haigh from 1813-1825 and he pursued the amalgamating of lands, ejectments for non payment and started the voluntary emmigrations to North America as a way of making the land pay. Robert Chaloner, Fitzwilliam brother-in-law replaced Haigh in 1825. The 4th Earl died in 1833 and his son took charge of the estate. ... Annette Code

October 28, 2009: Richard Bradley is researching his ancestors, Henry Bradley and Susan Garrett who are included on the Elly List and who came to Eastern Ontario (Prescott County) in 1820.
April 19, 2012: Mary O'Neill is researching the family of Thomas LAWRENCE and Henrietta WOODBURN who came to Perth County, Ontario, from the Fitzwilliam Estate in County Wicklow, in 1850.
April 26, 2013: I'm about to embark on the final draft of my new book, Leinster to Lanark, and I wonder if you'd be kind enough to place a posting on 'what's new' on Bytown or Bust, please? The book deals with the families on the Elly list, many of whom came to the Ottawa Valley in the period 1817-1830. While a majority settled in Lanark County, others came to Leeds and Carleton. In due course, some families moved on to other counties, such as Bruce, Huron, Lambton, Renfrew etc. I'd like to hear from anyone whose family is on the Elly list. Also from anyone whose kin came in that period from the counties of Carlow, Kilkenny, Wexford and Wicklow. Although extensive research has been done over a period of several years, and many people have been contacted, there may still be useful data out there.
