By the way, I went into my multi-branched family tree and extracted the
branch for the Davy clan. It is attached as Davy.GED.
I wouldn't post it - as I need to do more work before I am confident of
things. However, I thought you might be interested on a casual basis.
(Kevin's .GED not posted here, but you can e-mail him below ... Al)
You asked about what I had on the Burns/Byrnes side. There are a fair number of Burns names. Many of them come from the
Joe Burns / Anna Downey union. The others I have seem to connect to the DAVY
clan. For example, Sarah Burns, 1886-1960, was married to Barnett Davy,
1883-1963. I have two children down for them - a Wilbur Bernard Davy (born
1920) and Gordon Davy. I also have another group of Burns names with no
dates at all: a Lawrence Burns married to Bridget Ann McCabe with six
children: Marie, Veronica, Muriel, Evelyn, James and Herbert. Bridget Ann
McCabe's parents were Patrick McCabe and Elizabeth Davy.

Lisa Mills has a baptismal records of family Davey at St-Colomban concerning children born from 1845 onward
I don’t think it is my St-Columban. It’s probably St-Columban near Gatineau.
The 8 février 1831, Edward Davey, farmer of Bytown bought lot 281 of St-Colomban (Two-Mountains). He sold this place
with a wooden house the 14 march 1834. At this moment Edward, farmer, lived in Bytown.
It is possible for you to verificate with Lisa the localisation of the Lisa’s St-Colomban.
Note : I am interested by Edward Davey and direct family.
Thanks to Sue for the following:
From the records of St. Philip's church in Richmond, Ottawa, Canada:
On the 27th of July, 1864, after the ban of marriage has been once published, a dispostion of two bans granted
by the Bishop of Ottawa between Edward Davey, son of age of John Davy and Bridget Walsh deceased on the one part, and
Elizabeth Larkin, daughter of age of John Larkin and Catharine McCormick on the other part, no impediment having been
discovered, the undersigned Priest have (sic) received their mutual consent to marriage and have (sic) given them
the nuptial benediction in presence of James Larkin and Elizabeth Davy.
P. O'Connell, Parish Priest
February 14th 1841, baptized Edward, born 8th Jan of the lawful marriage of John Davy and Bridgit Walsh.
Sponsors Patrick Walsh and Bridgit Corrigan.
From the records of Notre Dame in Ottawa.
(Note: The actual entry looks like it says he was born 8 Jan, however the index it looks like Feb 8 and the index also
list the mother as Bridget Welsh, so take your pick (I lean towards the actual entry at the time of the baptism
and the year-end alphabetical index could be rife with human errors.) ... Sue
more from Sue:
From Notre Dame church records in Ottawa:
March 3, 1840, married after one publication at the parochial mass at Bytown, John Davy, yeoman, to Bridgit Walsh,
both of this place, (declared? decreed?) their mutual consent & gave them the nuptial benediction in presence of
John Barry and Margaret Cullen & several others.
The following children were born to John and Bridget Walsh / Welch according to various church records and censuses
(birth years given):
EDWARD, 1841 (baptized at Notre Dame), married Elizabeth Larkin in 1864
MARTIN, 1842 (baptized at Notre Dame), married Eliza Dunn in 1881 and died in 1933
PATRICK, 1844 (baptized at Notre Dame)
ELIZA, 1845 (baptized at Notre Dame), married Patrick McCabe in 1872 and died in 1931
JOHN, 1848 (baptized at Notre Dame, married Margaret McKenna in 1881 and died in 1921
CATHERINE, abt 1850 (no record of birth) and died sometime after June 1881 - she was a witness to brother John's wedding)
Mary, abt 1852 (this name only appears once, in the 1861 census - no record of birth or death). I believe this was the
census-taker's mistake and should be son JAMES, who was born in 1852 (baptized at South Gloucester)
BRIDGET, according to her death registration, she was born Apr 27, 1858 and died in 1935. She never married.
