William FENLON and Bridget DOYLE
from County Wicklow, Ireland to Ontario, Canada
later to North Dakota and Alberta

August 13, 2011:

My name is Jennifer and I am researching my great great great
great grandparents William Fenlon and Bridget Doyle cleared from Lord Fitzwilliam's land in County Wicklow.
Wondering if you've come across info on them in your research. I would be most grateful for your assistance.

Thanks to Anne Burgess for the following information:

Hi Al,

I have some index pages to the Clonmore parish records, and so I can give some baptismal details for the Fenlons, but not the sponsors: 

Bapt. of Margaret, d/o William Fenlon and Bridget Doyle, Kilanure 

Bapt. of Thomas, s/o William Fenlon and Bridget Doyle, Killanure 

And Iíve cut and pasted in below the Excel file of my transcription of the 1839 rentals record (a sort of census). 
My guess would be that Jennyís William was living with his father, Thomas Fenlon, and these records show only heads of families.

More from Jennifer:

I don't know who is in this photo. I was told they were Fenlons and it was taken in Ontario but I don't know.

Note: This photo was taken at the Dorion Studio in Ottawa. See early photographic studios in the Ottawa area.
