Bartholomew DONNELLY and Joanna QUAIL
County Wicklow, Ireland to Ottawa, Canada in 1851
June 11, 2010:
I happened upon your reference on Bytown or Bust to Bart Donelly and Joanna Quail, as being part of the
Fitzwilliam migration from Wicklow. I note that they were added in recently, at the end of 2009.
Can I ask how you came upon this information? I am interested in this family in my own research.
I've been researching the settlement of the Fitzwilliam emigres who came to Ontario, and found
Bartholomew Donnelly and Joanna Quail and family in Bytown. The Fitzwilliam emigration
record for this family follows. (This information is from the CD accompanying the book
Surplus People by Jim Rees.
