Patrick FINN and Bridget NOLAN
County Wexford, Ireland to Gloucester Township


July 13, 2007:

Here's another possible family from the border area of Counties Wexford, Wicklow 
and Carlow. There were Finns in Bytown as early as 1829 but some of them came 
from the Cork / Tipperary area of Ireland.

Does anyone know if the following FINN family came from Wexford, Wicklow or Carlow?

Death Record:
Jane Finn, Gloucester, wife of Dennis Finn died 22 June, 1881, aged 45.
She was born in County Wexford in 1836. Registration Number 002232.
July 19, 2007: Good afternoon all, for what its worth, [ re 1881 census ] John Finn and his wife Ellen Jane Gorman farmed on land where the License Bureau stands to-day on Heron road ,I remember when it was known as Finn Dairy , where they sold milk on the streets of OTTAWA. Walkley road split the farm, there were 3 boys and one girl in that family . when the farm was sold , one son bought the Nolan farm on the Manotick Station road. In speaking to a daughter and son-law, the Finns came from County Wexford . ... Michael Daley
New March 26, 2008: Hi Al: I thought the attached 1852 baptism of Charles Whelan was interesting. Parents were Matthew Whelan and Margaret Etchingam (Hutchingame?), godfather was William Finn and Godmother was Mary Donahue. We've identified a Thomas Hutchingame's wife Johanna Finn (d/o Anthony Finn and Elizabeth Hayes, Gloucester) as b. Wicklow, and I wondered if this William was her brother. ... Anne ________________________ Re my last email, Al, I think this is the 1851 census page for the FINN family that Johanna Finn Hutchingame came from. Patrick Finn's son is called Anthony, like their father. Attached is the funeral register of another child of the Whelan / Hutchingame couple, and witnesses were Patrick Finn and James Finn. ... Anne _________________________ Hi again, Al, More on this subject: I saw this little space on a page on B or B: 7 Jun 1851 Baptism of Anthony, son of Patrick Finn and Bridget Nolan of Bytown Godparents: Michael Nowlan & Mary Dunney (Dunn, Lunney or Durning?) (Bridget, born 1832 is daughter of William Nolan. The newborn Anthony is the grandson of -----------------) The missing name is, I believe, Anthony Fynn from the ND marriage record below, also taken from B or B: 14 Nov Thomas Hunchingham? of Bytown, son of Thomas Hutchingame and Mary Redmond, to Johanna Fynn of Gloucester, daughter of Anthony Fynn and Elizabeth Hays. (note: Anthony Fynn died the next day, 15 Nov and his funeral service was held the 18th) Johanna Finn, d/o Anthony, was b. Wicklow, according to her death certificate. ... Anne
