William FITZPATRICK and Mary Anne SEMANS
100th Regiment of Foot

January 26, 2003:

Al;
 
I have been meaning to send this FTM Program file to you for some time now, I think 
that it is quite relevant to your website, in that William Fitzpatrick was a member 
of the 100th Regiment of Foot, and settled in the Goulbourn area in the 1820s. Lots 
of information on William, and perhaps by posting this file, I can get help in finding 
the missing three children of William.

Thanks for sending this material along for the web site.
It contains a tremendous amount of information regarding the early settlement
process of the Richmond / Goulbourn area in the 1810's and 1820's. Also, information
regarding the Talbot settlers and many familiar names in the history of the Ottawa 
area, both on the Ontario and the Quebec sides of the Ottawa River.

Descendants of William Fitzpatrick
Generation No. 1 1. WILLIAM2 FITZPATRICK (UNKNOWN1) was born Abt. 1778 in Upperwood or Castlederry, County Leix, Ireland., and died Bef. 1851 in Unknown.. He married MARY ANN (SEAMANS) SEMANS Bet. 1803 - 1810. She was born Abt. 1780 in Ireland., and died May 31, 1878 in Alcove, Quebec. Notes for WILLIAM FITZPATRICK: William Fitzpatrick was born: 1778 (could also be 1768), and was a member of the British Army, 54th Regiment of Foot, 77th Regiment of Foot, and the 100th Regiment of Foot (later became the 99th Regiment of Foot), (recruited in Dublin in 1804). He was in the British forces from about 1795 to 1816 (or 1818), and retired at the age of 50. He was heavily involved in the 1812-1814 War, and was a Sergeant, he was Quarter-Master to the Regimental left-flank, was also regimental Pay-Master, and the Assistant Barrack Master at Fort Wellington, he was also appointed by Sir William Prevost to the position of full Barrack Master at Fort Wellington, Prescott, Ontario. There is also proof that he was a member of the 17th Light Dragoon Regiment for a period of two years, where he spent the time in the West Indies. DEATH: Presently Williams date of death is unknown, but would have occurred between 1837 and 1851. His place of burial is also unknown. CENSUS: 1820, 1821 and 1822 Census for Goulbourn Township, Carleton County, Heads of Household: FITZPATRICK, William, 1 wife, 2 sons, 4 daughters, Conc. 6, Lot 1/2 Lot 15. MILITARY: Return of Persons located by the Quarter Master Generals Department, in the Bathurst District who have performed the term of Settlement and are entitled to the Patent Grants for the Several Allotments opposite their respective names - Wm, Fitzpatrick - Serg't. 99th Reg., Township of Goulbourn, 6th Concession, W 1/2 Lot 15, 100 acres, 15 April 1823. (Note: the 100th Regiment had been renumbered to the 99th by this time) The Following was extracted with the kind permission of "Nora Murray Hanson" (Nee Fitzpatrick), from her book entitled "The Fitzpatrick Family North Wakefield" 1812-1814 War: The British were making their plans to repel the invader. Lieutenant-Colonel Pearson, Commanding Officer at Prescott, ordered Captain Richard Duncan Fraser of the Provincial Dragoons, Sergeant William Fitzpatrick and a few dragoons to "bring down all of the Militia of that part of the Country, to Fort Wellington, to resist the invading American Army under General Wilkinson; (the American Army) then extending from opposite Brockville nearly to Prescott on the water in boats". That in obedience to the above order your Memorialist (William Fitzpatrick) proceeded to Brockville where we arrived about 10 o'clock at night. We met one Hiram Spafford on the street and asked him why he had not proceeded with the rest of the cellency Sir George Prevost. During the time Fitzpatrick was under my command, he conducted himself as a zealous and attentive soldier. I have the honor to be Sir Your most obedient and very Humble servant Murray, Colonel" Jumping forward to 1819, the following is an account of the incident at Brockville during the invasion in 1813, in William Fitzpatrick's own words. It is a Memorial to His Grace, the Duke of Richmond, Commander in Chief of his Majesty's forces in Lower and Upper Canada, etc. - "humbly sheweth, That Memorialist hath served in the 100th Regiment for upwards of nine years as a Non-Commissioned Officer That in the month of November 1813 your memorialist was ordered by Lt. Col. Peirson, then Commanding Officer at Prescott - to proceed to Brockville, with Capt. R.D. Fraser; of the provincial Dragoons and to bring down all the Militia of that part of the Country, to Fort Wellington, to resist the American Army under General Wilkinson; then extending from opposite Brockvill nearly to Prescott on the water in boats, that in obedience to the above order your Memorialist proceeded to Brockvill, with Capt. R.D. Fraser and a few Dragoons - where we arrived about 10 o'clock at night. We met one Hiram Spaford on the street and asked him why he had not proceeded with the rest of the Militia to Fort Wellington. He replyed that he had property to take care of and he would not go. Your Memorialist then gave the said Spaford into Custody by order of R.D. Fraser - to Lieut. Hall, while your Memorialist proceeded to Execute Col. Pierson's order, a few minutes after - your Memorialist returned, and found that the said Spaford under cover of the darkness if the night had effected his escape! Your Memorialist then proceeded to the house of the said Spaford and requested admittance in order to search for him which was refused by the person in the house; Your Memorialist together with Capt. Fraser then under the necessity to force the door open; and in the month of Sept. 1914 at Brockville the said Spaford having sued your Memorialist and Capt. Fraser for damages and false imprisonment and notwithstanding, the Justice of you Memorialist cause - was condemned to pay the sum of 24. 14. 11 ½ damages with 27 Costs for which the Sheriff has levied an Execution on my goods and chattels, to be sold at public auction to pay the amount. Your Memorialist most humbly prayeth that in as much as your memorialist was in the execution of the orders of his superior officer - which he did not exceed, Your Grace will be graciously pleased to direct the amount of 51. 14. 11 ½ and money expended on said suit of 10. 6. 9. To be paid out of publick funds of the Country, and thereby relieve your memorialist form a loss which his circumstances will ill allow him to pay, your memorialist having a wife and five helpless children to support. Likewise your memorialist most humbly sheweth that Capt. R.D. Fraser has received his from Deputy Assistant Commissary General Clark at Prescott by order of His Excellency Sir John Cope Sherbrook and Memorialist in duty found will ever pray. Wm. Fitzpatrick Cost 51 14 11 ½ 10 6 9___ 62 pounds1shilling 8 ½ pence We verily believe the above statement is true Wm. Fraser Col. Commanding 1st Regt. Granvill (Grenville) Militia Thos. Fraser Lt. Col. Prescott, 1st march 1819" William's case was worse than Captain Fraser's, in that his fortunes suffered another sad reversal. He was in his post of Barrack Master at Fort Wellington when the Inspector came around to check on the Fort in January 1815. William explains what happened in his letter to Sir George Prevost - " Fort Wellington 11 February 1815 Sir, After the action of Goose Creek your Excellency was graciously pleased to remove me from the 100th Regiment, and appoint me as Assistant Barrack Master at this post. On the 7th January last, Major General Robinson inspected different departments at Fort Wellington, and censured me for not having a sufficient supply of Barrack Utensils for Johnston, Brockville, and Bridge IslanMilitia to Fort Wellington. He replied that he had a property to take care of and he would not go. Your Memorialist then gave the said Spafford into Custody, by order of Captain R.D. Fraser, to Lieutenant Hall, while you Memorialist proceeded to Execute Colonel Pearson's order. A few minutes after your Memorialist returned, and found that the said Spafford, under cover of darkness of the night, had effected his escape! Your Memorialist then proceeded to the house of the said Spafford and requested admittance in order to search for him, which was refused by the persons of the house. Your Memorialist, together with Captain Fraser, then was under the necessity to force the door open. The account of this incident is contained in a letter William wrote a year later, but is almost exactly the same as Captain Fraser's account of the same incident. William probably didn't give this minor contretemps much thought, on the eve of the invasion, when the Americans were actually on the water in Boats. On January 26th, 1814, Sgt. William Fitzpatrick wrote the following letter - "To His Excellency, Sir George Prevost Kt. Lieut General and Commander of H.M. Forces in British North America, etc. The Memorial of Asst. Bk. Master William Fitzpatrick Sheweth- That your Excellency's Memorialist has served Nine years in the 100th Regiment, during nearly the whole of which period he supported the character of a Sergeant, under the Command of Col. Murray and Lieut. Col. Hamilton, with credit to himself and the approbation of his superior officers. He also acted for some time as Quarter Master Sergeant to the Flank Battalion and was never absent from the Battalion whenever its Services were called for. At the recounter at Goose Creek, his particular Services met such high approbation as to induce Your Excellency to appoint him to the situation he now holds - Memorialist begs to state his most grateful sense of Your Excellency's distinguished favour, which will ever be cherished in his memory. He, however wishes to observe that the active scenes of Military life are more congenial to his feelings and that at a crisis like the present he is anxiously desirous of pursuing the road to military fame which he has so far trodden with so much honour to himself, and, he trusts, benefit to his Country. Memorialist therefore humbly begs Your Excellency will be graciously pleased to appoint him to an ensigny in any Regiment of the Line which your Excellency may think fit. Which is humbly submitted, William Fitzpatrick Asst Barrack Master" In the tortuous ways of the times, he had to send this letter to his Commanding Officer with a request to forward it on to Sir George Prevost. His note to Colonel Murray reads as follows - "Sir, Trusting that my conduct and general character for a series of years under your Command has been such as to entitle me to your notice and protection, and relying on your partial indulgence, I beg to transmit the enclosed Memorial, and to entreat, should you not deem it improper, that you will be pleased to lay the same before the Commander of the Forces for consideration. I have no doubt but His Excellency, through his recommendation, will be induces to accede to the request therein contained. It may perhaps appear extraordinary that I should wish to resign a situation so advantageous and respectable as the one in which it has pleased His Excellency to place me, but you, Sir, who are acquainted with my habits and disposition, will I hope judge otherwise, and give me credit for the propriety of the motives that induce me to this measure, namely a partial attachment to active Military Service. I am Sir, Your most obedient humble servant William Fitzpatrick Asst. Barrack Master" Colonel Murray sent on the "Memorial" to Sir George Prevost with a letter of his own stating - "I have the honor to forward to you a letter from Ass't Barrack Master Fitzpatrick to me conveying a memorial to His Exd, as well as this post, which induc'd me to resign my situation as Ass't. Barrack Master, to Major General Robinson. I beg leave to state, that I had previously applied to the head of my department, at Kingston, and had forwarded triplicate receipts, approv'd by Colonel Grant for the Articles required, but could not obtain them: I likewise, promptly, acknowledged the impropriety of my conduct, in attempting to resign my situation, to the heads of my department at Quebec and Kingston, and expressed a wish to continue in my present employment; - but the order, dated Quebec, 3rd February, 1815, appointing Mr. Richard Sexton to be Barrack Master, at this post, induces me to solicit your Excellency to condescend to enquire into my conduct, with the hope, that in the event you find my conduct meritorious, you will be graciously pleased to continue me in my present post, etc., etc., etc. Have forwarded a duplicate of this to P.V. Cortlandt, Esquire, D'y. Barrack Master General, Quebec. I have the Honour to be Your Excellency's most gratefull Obedient, faithful and devoted servant (Sgd.) W. Fitzpatrick Ass't Barrack Master." When told that "nothing could be done to reinstate him", he wrote the following sad epistle to Sir George Prevost: " Fort Wellington 14 Feb'y 1815 Sir, In the event a momentary Act of Imprudence, Notwithstanding my endeavours to do it away, deprives me of my situation Ass't Barrack Master at this post, I humbly request Your Excellency will be graciously pleased to favour me with some other Appointment in the Service, as I never, in time of War, can be happy, unless usefully employed in the Service of My Country. I Have the Honor to be, with Profound respect, Your Excellency's most Obedient Faithful and Devoted Servant (Sgd.) W. Fitzpatrick Ass't Barrack Master" Now William was really in a sad plight - fined for doing his duty in the late War and so snarled by red tape in his position of Barrack Master that, probably in a temper, he resigned his post. After he resigned his post, he is described as a Merchant, and there are records showing that he bought lots in Prescott as early as 1814 and was issued a Shop Licence for the Johnston District in 1816. Some of the lots he bought were as follows: In old Brockville - From Edw. Jessup Jr., Esq., to Wm. Fitzpatrick, Gentleman, Lot 12 Water St. to King St. (Crn. Centre St. ) 20 Pounds. In Brockville records - lots believed to be in Prescott - F-323 - Mortgage - Feb. 1816 - William Fitzpatrick to John Torrence L 414-19-5 all. F-158 B & S - Henry Spofford & Wm. Gardiner to Wm. Fitzpatrick L 150 - Lot 6 south side King St. to Water St. F-394 B & S - May 1816 Susanna Jessup - Wm. Fitzpatrick L 20 - Cr. Centre St., North side Henry St. July 1816 Wm. Fitzpatrick to James Chambers L 250 - All - G-119 B & S 1817 L75 - all Wm. Fitzpatrick to Walter F. Gates. Why he left Prescott and Brockville when he was buying and selling lots and running some sort of shop is a mystery but certainly he seemed to have money to buy property and, when he sold, he received high prices. Perhaps it was after his goods and chattels had been sold at public auction to pay his fine, that he thought it was time for a new venture. He must have been an adventuresome and restless person, because he now joined the North West Fur Company, and went off to the Indian Territories to procure a livelihood for himself and family, in which place he was doing very well until, unfortunately, he lost his Eye Sight which compelled him to give up business and return to Upper Canada. He explains in a much later letter that he eventually became blind in his left eye and with a cataract in his right. When he returned to Upper Canada in 1819 from the Old Northwest, his eyesight was probably beginning to fail; it is unlikely he had really "lost his eye sight" completely. After hearing nothing from William from 1816 to 1819, as he was off in the Indian Territories, he again "Memoraled" those in authority. In March, 1819, he wrote to the Duke of Richmond about his losses from paying the fine in the case of Spafford vs. Fraser and Fitzpatrick. He followed this up with another letter to Major Bowlis, Military Secretary, and repeated his story ending with - "I Hope that his Grace, the Duke of Richmond, etc., will be graciously pleased to direct Assistant Commissary General Clark to pay his Memoralist his part. His Memoralist has a wife and five small children to support and his circumstances will ill allow him to afford so much money from his family in these hard times as his Memoralist has no situation whatever to help him to support his family after all my services and all that I have suffered during the late War." In June 1819, William wrote R.D. Fraser, asking how it came about that Fraser was given back the fine and court costs, but Fraser, while saying that he sustained a loss of 85 pounds, which was paid back to him, says he doesn't know why William has not received his money. Apparently, William heard nothing, and on November 24th, 1819, William wrote to Major Bowlis, Military Secretary, from Prescott saying, in part and with original spelling!, the following: "I beg leave to state that I am waiting, here this longtime, expecting every post, that cumdown, that I should have the honor, to here, from you respecting thoes documents, that I have enclosed to you, in the month of June last, 1819", and - "permit me again to Solicit my being compensated for my individual losses, as I am very ill, abel, to afford it, as I have a large family, to support, a wife and five small children". As far as is known, William never did receive his compensation money at this time. In the meantime, William's old Regiment, the 100th, had broken up (disbanded) at Quebec in July 1818, and, according to Whitton, a very liberal offer of land was made to every member of the corps on condition of his becoming an actual settler. About 300 officers and men of the Regiment accepted the offer and it was decided to found a settlement on the Upper Ottawa, the cadre of the Regiment returning to England- "On July, 1818, the settlers from the old 100th Regiment, embarked at Quebec en route for their new home. As they left that city, H.M.S. Iphigenia passed them, amid the thunders of a salute from the guns of the Citadel. She bore the new Governor-General of the Canada, the Duke of Richmond, and the loyal soldier-settlers resolved that the new town they hoped to found in the west should bear the name of the King's representative. Travel was slow in those days, and it was not until the middle of August that the settlers arrived at their destination. They disembarked on the south shore of the Ottawa, just below the Chaudiere Falls, on what is now known as "The Lebreton Flats", but which for many years bore the more stately name of "Richmond Landing". Here they pitched tents, and here for the remainder of the summer dwelt the women and children, while the men were cutting a road through the woods towards their permanent homes. They reached the Goodwood (Jock) River, and ascending it some distance, arrived at the foot of the rapids, where they decided to build their town. By this time the season was far advanced, and, before the women and children were brought down from the temporary settlement and housed for the winter, much suffering ensued. The colonists were greatly helped by the generosity of the Imperial Government, who supplied them liberally with tools and one year's rations free of charge. Under the able guidance of Lt. Col. Bourke (Burke), late of the 100th Regiment, the settlement steadily grew. Other settlers came in, chiefly retired officers and men from various Regiments, and the military aspect of this little colony was enhanced" Now we come to a very mysterious time in the life of William Fitzpatrick. He must have heard that his old Regiment was settling in Richmond, in the District of Bathurst. He appears on a list as eligible for a land grant and then again on the official "Return of Persons by the Quarter Master Generals Department in the Bathurst District who have performed the term of Settlement and are entitled to the Patent Grants for the Several Allotments opposite their Respective Names - Wm. Fitzpatrick- Serg't. 99th Reg.*, Township of Goulbourn, 6th Concession, W ½ Lot 15, 100 acres, 15 April 1823 (Date of Completion of the prescribed term of Settlement) * The 100th Regiment had been renumbered to the 99th at this time period. A note written on this ledger book sheet states that "The several locations marked thus are free from difficulty, 29 March 1828" and signed by Jno. Rideout and William's grant is marked in this fashion. In the 1820, 1821, and 1822 Census for Goulbourn Township, Bathhurst District, William Fitzpatrick is listed as the head of the household, with one wife, two sons and four daughters. Also in the 1822 census of Bathurst District, William is living on this farm and has 99 acres un-cleared and I acre cleared. The odd thing about all of this, is that William states in 1832, that he never received the patent or deed to this land, but it does exist. The Regent had become George IV in 1820 and the patent is headed by his name and signed by John Beverly Robinson as Attorney General. The Crown granted the land to William, but reserved the mineral rights for "all Mines of Gold and Silver" and "all White Pine Trees, that shall or may now or hereafter grow"! It is dated May 1828. Also, later when he asked again for this deed, they said that he had sold his grant, but this is not recorded in the Carleton County Registry. William Fitzpatrick is listed as the owner in 1828, but the next entry in 1848, is when the land was sold by a man in Prescott. George IV's brother, William IV, was now King of England, ascending to the throne in 1830. In 1832, William Fitzpatrick is back in Brockville and "Memorialed" Sir John Colburn, Lt. Gov. of Upper Canada for the return of the fine, which he had never received, saying, in part; "Government ever just to the Sufferers in her Cause was pleased to order the Damages and Costs of Court to be refunded to Capt. Fraser and your Memorialist. Captain Fraser received his part, but your Memorialist being then employed in the Service of the North West Company, and had proceeded to the Indian Territory that caused the delay of his applying sooner, not being present. Your Memorialist begs leave to state that the then Capt. Fraser, now Colonel Fraser, is now in York (Toronto) who can give Testimony of the correctness of Your Memorialists claim and hopes your Excellency may consider his long absence no bar to his receiving what he conceives his just due." William should have known by now (and probably did) that Government is not ever just to the Sufferers in her Cause. However his old friend (and fellow delinquent!), Colonel Fraser, did write to the Secretary of the Lt. Governor saying that "Judgement has been obtained against the Petitioner and myself as he states in the Court of Kings Bench and that my application to Sir John Cope Sherbrooke, then Governor-General of the Provinces, to be remunerated on my own behalf, which was granted. The Petitioner was not in the Country at the time and I do think he never received any remuneration." On 10 December 1833, Colonel Fraser apparently, personally gave William a letter to be handed to Colonel Rowan, House of Assembly, stating - "The bearer hereof, William Fitzpatrick, late Barrack Master, I beg leave to inform you, is the person who was fined at the same time and upon the same occasion that I was. The accompanying letter will throw a little light upon the subject in question. I have been remunerated for my fine and costs order of Sir John Cope Sherbrooke, Mr. Fitzpatrick at the time having been in North America and supposed not living, he therefore never received any remuneration whatever to the best of my knowledge. Colonel Pearson was Commanding at the time at Fort Wellington." William, still in York on New Year's Eve, 1833, wrote the following to His Excellency Sir John Colborne - "The Petition of William Fitzpatrick in the Johnston District, late Barrack Master at Fort Wellington - Humbly Sheweth - That your Petitioner having served His Majesty as Pay Sergeant in the Light Infantry Company of the 100th Reg't. of Foot for the period of eleven years, and was appointed Quarter Master Sergeant to the Flank Battalion, then at Blair Finda (?), Commanded by General De Rottenburgh. That after the Battles of Sacketts Harbour and French Creek, both of which places Petitioner had distinguished himself, that His Excellency Sir George Prevost was pleased to appoint him to the situation of Barrack Master at Fort Wellington, which Petitioner had retained until the close of the War, That your Excellency's' Petitioner then went to the Indian Territories to procure a livelyhood for himself and family in which place he was doing very well until unfortunately he lost his eye sight, which compelled him to give up business and return to Upper Canada, The petitioner is now reduced and without means of supporting a large helpless Family most humbly prays your Excellency may be pleased to allow him such grant of lands as your Excellency In Council may deem proper." William's case for a land grant and also for return of his fine was put before the Legislative Assembly, and was ruled on by no less a personage than the Honorable and Venerable John Strachan, Archdeacon of York, Presiding Councillor. Also on the Executive Council at the time were the Honorable Peter Robinson; the Honorable George H. Markland and the Honorable Joseph Wells, all members of the powerful "Family Compact". This Council had a copy of the order appointing him as Barrack Master and he also signed an Oath of Allegiance; this was being requested in any grant of land at this time of unrest before the Rebellion in Upper Canada. This august group recommended William for land as a Sergeant. William wasn't quite so fortunate with his other suit, which dragged on and on. William, back in Brockville, had an attorney, Henry Thomhill, write several letters, in August 1835, to the Secretary of the Legislative Assembly saying, among other things (with perhaps slight sarcasm); "Conceiving as a matter of course that the affair has been disposed of by this time, he will feel much obliged by receiving as early a communication on the subject as possible". On 25 November, 1835, Mr. Thomhill wrote again for William - "In consequence of instructions received from Lt. Col. Rowan, I am requested by William Fitzpatrick to enquire of you whether the Council have taken into consideration the case of Spafford vs Fraser and Fitzpatrick. The papers and documents relating to the transaction, wished for by the Council were transmitted nearly two years ago and as Fitzpatrick is in very distressed circumstances, the long delay which has taken place has injured him severely. If the Council have disposed of the matter you will please let him know as early as possible, if not you will oblige him very much by stating the cause of delay." Whether these letters moved the Executive Council is doubtful, but perhaps a thoughtful letter from Judge Robert S. Jameson finally got action and William was paid 70 pounds, only twenty-one years after the wrongful trial! Justice at Last. William was in Brockville again in April 1837 and wrote a letter to a gentleman asking him to present his petition to the Executive Council as they were meeting the next day. On 28th June, 1837, he wrote to His Excellency Sir Francis Bond Head, Lt. Gov. of the Province of Upper Canada. This Memorial - "Humbly Sheweth - That the Petitioner is a discharged Soldier of the 100th Regiment and was …………………… that two hundred acres of land was granted to your Petitioner as he is informed and was sent by Mr. Radenhurst to Colonel Burke of Richmond, in the Bathhurst. That your Petitioner had made every enquiry after the said Deed but ........... Informed by said Colonel Burke that he never received any such Deed from the Surveyor Generals Office. Your Petitioner therefore must humbly .............. that as the original Deed to your Petitioner appears to have been lost, Your Excellency will be generously pleased to order that an Exemplification of the Government Patent may issue to your Petitioner free of expense as he is unable to bear the expense of obtaining it in the ordinary way - The lot for which you Petitioner never ............ is Lot No. 15 in the 6th Concession of Goulbourn, Bathurst District." NOTE: * This letter is a very poor copy of a not very legible handwriting, and the blanks are words that cannot be deciphered. There is a note with this Petition, written from the Secretary's Office - "The Patent to William Fitzpatrick for the South West half of Lot No. 15, 6 Conc. Of Township of Goulbourn, containing 100 Acres, was completed in this office on the 9th May, 1828, and was issued on the 11th July, 1828 to Mr. Radenhurst of the Surveyor General's Office." Another note appears on the same sheet saying that William had sold the Patent to the land on 22nd October 1833 to someone from Brockville. Apparently they thought this wasn't true as Sir John Colborne, in 1834, granted William two hundred acres of land. In August 1837, William apparently had been swindled out of his land (in Goulbourn) and states - "that the said land was never located by him and that he never authorized any other party to locate the same land in his stead". At this time he wrote a very pitiful letter to Sir Francis Bond Head - "The Petition of William Fitzpatrick of Brockville, in the District of Johnston, in the Province of Upper Canada, yeoman, Respectfully Sheweth, Your Excellency's Petitioner Served in His Majesty's 100th Regiment of Infantry for a number of years during which period he filled several situations of confidence and importance to the service, namely those of Barrack Master, Assistant Commissary, etc., was at the taking of the two American vessels the "Eagle" and "Growler" at the Isle aux Noix under the Command of Col. Taylor and was present at almost every engagement which took place in the Upper and Lower Provinces, during the late War. Your Excellency's Petitioner further begs leave to state that His Late Excellency, Sir John Colborne, together with the Executive Council granted him as past remuneration for his services a tract of land which he has never yet drawn in consequence of his being almost totally deprived of sight and being compelled thereby to entrust the management of his affairs to individuals several of whom have tried to take advantage of his helpless situation and swindled him out of that provision which His Majesty's Government were graciously pleased to make for his support during his old age.

This grant of land, Lot No. 28 in the 17th Concession of Harvey, was definitely granted to William but, by this time, he is just not able to fulfill the conditions and asks for relief. His last "Memorial", written in Toronto on 24th October, 1837, is very sad indeed - "The Petition of William Fitzpatrick, Yeoman, Humbly Sheweth - That Your Petitioner as a discharged Sergeant from the 100th Regiment was under Order In Council granted 200 acres of land which he located upon the Lot No. 28 in the 17th Concession of Harvey - That your Petitioner is nearly sixty years of age, blind in his left eye and with a cataract in his right, with a shattered constitution having served some years in the various islands of the West Indies in the 17th Light Dragoons and afterwards drafted into the 100th Reg't. with which he served through the whole of the late war in this country with merit to himself as sheweth by the various ratification hereto attached and his loss of sight corroborated by (Attorney) Wedman - from the above circumstances joined to perfect destitution he is utterly unable to go upon and improve his land or to procure it to be done. He therefore humbly prays Your Excellency may be pleased to order that Settlement duty in his case be dispensed with and that he may received his Patent for the same." This is the last petition from William that has been found and it is not known where or when he died. Whatever else he might have been, it is certain that he was adventurous, brave, restless and striving, and, above all ambitious. Though he wasn't able to "get ahead" financially, probably mostly because of his loss of sight, he did survive and his family survived. ______________________________________________________________________________________ In 1851 Mary Ann Semans is living with her two sons William Debursey and Michael Debursey Fitzpatrick. In 1861 and 1871 Mary Ann Semans is living with her Son Michael Debursey Fitzpatrick and his wife Ellen Colbert on the original farm. At this point in their lives, they had a little good fortune for a change. It was a law, at that time, that when a married couple owned real estate, the wife had to take a small amount of money, sometimes only a token, when that property was sold, or else she retained her "Dower Rights" to it. These "Dower Rights" were one-third (33%) of the value of the property and were enshrined in law to protect the wife and children, at a time when a woman was not a "legal person". William must have died between 1837, when we last heard of him, and 1842, when the rest of the family were living an tenants in Goulbourn. There are reports that William Debursey and Michael Debursey, also farmed on the Niagara Peninsula and in the Pontiac County, before locating in the Gatineau. On 12th August, 1853, Anne (Mary Anne Semans), journeyed to Bytown from North Wakefield, hired an Attorney, Michael John Anderson of the town of Cornwall, and gave him Power of Attorney, to recover he "Dower Rights" from the lands in the town of Prescott. Her Memorial testifies to her identity and relationship with William concisely - "Know all Men by these presents - That I, Ann Fitzpatrick of the Township of Wakefield in the Province of Canada, Widow of the late William Fitzpatrick, Sergeant in the Hundredth Regiment of Foot - Barrack Master at Prescott and afterwards, Merchant at Prescott in the County of Grenville one of the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville in the Province aforesaid." She also says - "… Do make, ordain, authorize, constitute and appoint Michael John Anderson of the Town of Cornwall, Gentleman, my true and Lawful Attorney for me and in my name, and in my place, and stead, to enter into, and upon, and take possession of the one third part of the following Lots or parcels of Land situated lying and being in the said Town of Prescott ." She then lists a number of lots in Prescott, one in the Township of Osnabruck and one in the Second Concession of the Township of Edwardsburgh in the County of Grenville and - "also the one third part of all other Lots and parcels or tracts of Land wheresoever situated in the said Province of Canada, in which I have any claim to Dower in Law or Equity ." The document then renounces any further claim on - "each and every part and parcel thereof, late belonging to the said William Fitzpatrick, deceased, and which have been sold or conveyed or otherwise disposed of to any person or persons whomsoever also all other the Estates, right, title, interest, property claim and demand, both al Law and in equity of me the said Ann Fitzpatrick ……. To the end and intent that the same and every and each parcel thereof shall and may be held and enjoyed by the respective parties, their and each of their heirs, and assigns from and absolutely discharge of and from all Dower or thirds and all other claims or demands of me the said Anne Fitzpatrick." This document is registered in Bytown, in the County of Carleton, and witnessed by Thomas Green of Bytown, Inn Keeper (perhaps an acquaintance of Michael's, as he was also an Inn Keeper at the time), and Augustus Keefer of Prescott, Esquire. In one instance, at least, this document produced the desired effect in that - "Now Know Ye that in consideration of the sum of seventy-five pounds of lawful Money of Canada to the said Ann Fitzpatrick in hand paid by John Torrance of the City of Montreal in the Province of Canada, Esquire, the Receipt whereof is hereby acknowledged, the said Ann Fitzpatrick have granted, remised released and for ever quitted Claim." This "receipt and quit Claim" is dated 26th October, 1853 (in the Seventeenth year of Her Majesty's reign) and is witnessed and attested to by Augustus Keefer. Anne must have gone to Prescott at this time as Mr. Keefer's sworn statement says - "that he was present and did see the foregoing memorial signed and sealed by the therein named Ann Fitzpatrick, and that he was also present and did see the Release of Dower to which the said Memorial relates duly executed at the Town of Prescott aforesaid, by the said Ann Fitzpatrick; and this deponent further saith that he is a subscribing witness to each of the said instruments." It is not known if Ann was successful in obtaining her "Dower Rights" to any other lands, as this last document only applies to one lot on the South Side of the King's Highway, in the Town of Prescott. Augustus Keefer mentions "instruments" in the plural, but he may be referring to the two memorials. In any event, it must have been wonderful for them to at least have realized the sum of "75 pounds"; and perhaps William's other lots brought in something also. He was still providing for the family, he had been so worried about, when things were going wrong for him. It was a pity he didn't live to see them settled on the farm in the Gatineau, and at least obtain some sort of satisfaction, due to William, for the wrongful court case many, many years ago, fourty years to be exact.

Notes for MARGARET FITZPATRICK: The family story has it that Margaret married a Caunauwauga Indian Chief at St. Regis, named McComber. It is said that she visited the Inn at North Wakefield, from her home in or near Montreal, coming by Patterson's stage from Bytown, that she was well dressed and spoke English and French. It is said that on one visit in the sixties, when her bandbox was being put up on the stage, it fell and burst open and it was seen that there was money packed away in it. Perhaps her brother Michael or her mother, Anne, had given it to her; apparently the Inn was thriving at the time. The McComber name does appear in the 1851 Census of St. Regis, in that there was a Charlotte McComber who appears to have been the wife of an Isaac LeClair. The enumerator was recording the wives under their maiden names which is the French-Canadian tradition. In the same house was a Marianne McComber, aged 15, and a Baptiste LeClair, aged 12. At the time this Charlotte was forty-six and had been born in Canada. This would make her birth year 1805, which is the year William came to Canada, but there is no evidence that she was a Fitzpatrick by birth and we had always heard that William and Michael's sister was named Margaret. iii.

This could well be one of the missing Fitzpatrick girls. We still have two Fitzpatrick daughters and one son still unaccounted for. We do know that they resided in the Goulbourn area in 1820, and the only ones that moved to North Wakefield appear to be the last sons born to William Fitzpatrick and Mary Anne Seaman, the two sons moved to North Wakefield between 1841 and 1851 with their Mother, no sign of William or the other foru children, one son and three daughters.

After leaving something to his son George Henry Fitzpatrick, William left the farm to his eldest son, William Debursey, and states that he is "satisfied with the reading of the Will made to him....as exactly containing his last intentions", and "not to be able to sign his name on account of blindness, and made his mark of a cross" It is quite startling to learn that William Debursey was blind as much as ten years before his death, as his father, William was also blind.

Notes for MARIA COLBERT: There were other Colberts in Modreeny Parish, and the family's origin is described in Mrs. R. Dodds book "Who's Which" - As far as is presently known, Colberts were located in County Tipperary, Ireland, having been settled there about 1719, by Lord Southmore. They were, in all likelihood, from the Palitinate in Germany. As the name suggests, the family were probably French origin. The name often is spelled "Culbert", originally it was "Colbert". Authur Young in his ‘Tour in Ireland 1776-1779', describes the Palitinates of Tipperary. "They are very industrious, and in consequence are better fed, better clothed and better lodged than the Irish peasants. There are three villages of them, about seventy families in all. Their crops are much better than those of their neighbors ". In 1817 prospects looked pretty grim in Ireland, when Richard Talbot, a gentleman of Tipperary decided to sell all and emigrate to Canada. He canvassed the neighbourhood to see who would be interested in going to Canada under his leadership. The response was great. They left Tipperary, May 4th, 1818, on the Brig' Brunswick'. After many delays and hardships, they finally sailed from Cork, June 8th, and docked in Quebec on July 27th, 1818. John and William Colbert settled in Goulbourn Township. With John Colbert's family came his niece, eight year old Jane Colbert, who afterward married James Wiggins, a farmer of Kazuabazua. A John Colbert, later came to North Wakefield and settled. He married Elizabeth Richardson. The John Colbert, who married Elizabeth Richardson, was probably a son of the first John mentioned here, as he was born in 1823. He died in 1899, at the age of seventy-six years, and is buried with his wife, in the Holy Trinity Anglican Cemetery, Lascelles. NOTE: In the 1820 to 1822 Census for Goulbourn Township, there is the following listing, it is believed that these families are related to Maria and Ellen Colbert: 1820 Goulbourn Township Census John Colbert, 1 wife, no sons, 4 daughters, Total 6 William Colbert, 1 wife, 1 son, 3 daughters; Total 6 1822 Goulbourn Township Census John Sr. Colbert, 1 wife, no sons, 4 daughters, Total 6 William Colbert, 1 wife, 1 son, 3 daughters, Total 6 The above John and William Colbert, along with their families were part of the Talbot Party Emigration in 1818, that came to Canada, and settled in the Goulbourn area. The following was extracted from the Talbot Party passenger listing in 1818: COLBERT, John, age: 50, Farmer, Ballingarry; Wife: Ann ?; Children: Ann, Age 19; Mary, Age 15; Frances, Age 12; Unknown Daughter, Age: ?. Making John Colbert born about: 1768 COLBERT, William, age: ?, Farmer, Ballingarry; Wife Mrs. ?; Children: Mary, Age 18; Ann, age 12; John, age 8, Unknown Daughter, age ?. William's age would probably be close to his brother, John Colbert's age of 50. There were also other Colberts that came over to Canada with the same 1818 Talbot Party, and settled in Goulbourn: Sarah Colbert, age: 22, Married to Robert Young, age: 27, of Killaloe, Ireland, with a son, John, age: 6 months; and according to records Sarah Colbert was b. 1796, d. 1868, and Robert Young was b. 1791, d. 1877. Susan Colbert, age: 21, Married to William Hodgins, age: 29, Farmer from Newton, Modreeny. NOTE: These two Colberts, Sarah and Susan could well be daughters of either of the above John or William Colbert. There was another John Colbert, that came to Canada, on his own, as part of the first Robinson group in 1823, aboard the Hebe as follows: John Colbert, Hebe, Glogheen, Tipperary. He could well have been a son to the above John Colbert, because in the Goulbourn census, the Elder John lists his name as John (Senior) Colbert. They were a family of brothers and sisters, children of William and Mary Colbert, farmers of Burntwood Dig., near Cashel's Rock, Modreeny Parish, County Tipperary. Their father was a tenant farmer on Lord Dunalley's land, and their children were baptised in the Church of England - Edward Baptised 4 Jan, 1829 Elen Baptised 26 Dec, 1830 Maria Baptised 9 Jun, 1833 Samuel Baptised 12 Apr, 1835; and James Baptised 9 Apr, 1837. It is not known how many other children there were in this family, but it is believed that the first four came to Canada together. It could well work out that the John and William Colbert who came to Canada in 1818, with the Talbot Party, either one could be the Grandfather of the four Colbert children that came to Canada on their own in about 1857.

MICHAEL DEBURSEY3 FITZPATRICK (WILLIAM2, UNKNOWN1) was born October 1823 in Richmond, Carleton County, Ontario., and died June 22, 1883 in Alcove, Quebec.. He married ELLEN COLBERT July 29, 1857, daughter of WILLIAM COLBERT and MARY UNKNOWN. She was born December 20, 1830 in Modreeny Parish, County Tipperary, Ireland., and died December 08, 1924 in Alcove, Quebec.. Notes for MICHAEL DEBURSEY FITZPATRICK: Michael Debursey Fitzpatrick established an Inn called "Fitzpatrick House", along the Gatineau River in North Wakefield (Alcove), at the transfer point between the Gatineau Railroad and the stagecoach. The In was demolished to make way for the extension of the rail line. Michael Debursey Fitzpatrick's Will was written on Jun 11, 1883, in the presence of witnesses John McSheffrey and Andrew Hamilton, shows that he must have realized how ill he was and also shows his concern for his children, especially his youngest child, Michale Debursey (Bursey) Fitzpatrick, as he passed away 11 days after writing his Will: This is the Last Will and Testament of Michael Fitzpatrick of the township of Wakefield, County of Ottawa, province of Quebec, Canada, Farmer. I hereby give, devise and bequeath to my wife Ellen Colbert, her heirs, executors and administrators for her and their own use and benefit absolutely and forever, all my estate and effects both real and personal whatsoever and wheresoever and of what nature and quality soever, on condition that she will neither sell nor mortgage any portion of the real estate until my youngest child Michael shall have arrived at the age of twenty-one years; and I hereby appoint John Colbert, Edward Colbert, William Fitzpatrick and my said wife Ellen Colbert or Fitzpatrick, Executors of my Will. Michael's will was probated in the Superior Court, at Aylmer, P.Q., in 1891; the reason for the delay of eight years is not mentioned. According to the Family Bible, Michael Debursey Fitzpatrick Was born in 1823, and was the Last child of William and Anne. His closest brother, William Debursey Fitzpatrick, was born in 1820. These two boys were born when the family was in Richmond, and there is just one small clue as to the Origin of the name "Debursey". In the Ontario Local Records, Perth Military Settlement, there is listed a Rodolph De Bersey, who was granted land on 19th September, 1818 in Drummond Township, Conc. 8, SW Lot 6. He had been a Lieutenant with the De Wattevilles Swiss Regiment. This Regiment was stationed at Fort Wellington when William was the Barrack Master. The De Wattevilles came from Switzerland, and had fought on the British side against Napoleon, and had been sent to Canada to fight in the War of 1812 (along with another Swiss Regiment the De Meunier Regiment). They were offered land grants at the termination of the War. Perhaps this De Bersey had aided William in some way in the fighting, though the family legend has it that in some long-ago battle an officer or nobleman was struck down and a Fitzpatrick took up the flag and/or saved his life. It seems odd that the rescuer would commemorate the name of the rescued, instead of the other way around! The connection with this man might have been when William and Rodolph De Bersey both settled on crown land, one in Goulbourn and one in Drummond. Perhaps at that time of hardship, William was helped by De Bersey, and felt grateful enough to name his children (two sons) after him. Also, later in the family, there was a William Randolph Fitzpatrick, perhaps as Anglicised version of Rodolph. Perhaps none of the above is correct as the surname Debersey does occur in Ireland and could have been the maiden name of William's mother (Irish naming tradition). Whichever is the case, it was a name passed on by both brothers to their children. More About MICHAEL DEBURSEY FITZPATRICK: Burial: 1883, Holy Trinity Church Cemetery, Lascelles, Quebec.

Mrs. Fitzpatrick was one of the oldest residents of the North Wakefield district, and was known far and wide as the mother of a populous and popular family in the vicinity. Mrs. Fitzpatrick, formerly Miss Ellen Culbert, was born in Ireland, and came to the Gatineau district 67 years ago, settling near North Wakefield. Two years later she married Mr. Fitzpatrick, a farmer in the vicinity, who died about 40 years ago. From a lowly start, the Fitzpatrick's came to be numbered among the most successful farmers of the Gatineau Valley. She was Anglican by faith, and a regular attendant at the Church of England at Lascelles. The funeral will be held Wednesday afternoon at one o'clock, from the home to Lascelles Church, interment being made in Lascelles Cemetery. Surviving Mrs. Fitrzpatrick are four sons, George of Ottawa, Henry, Charles and Michael of Alcove and North Wakefield District, and three daughters, Mrs. S. McClellen, Danford Lake; Mrs. John Ruler, Ottawa; Mrs. D. Scullion, Campbellton. There are also 37 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. EXTRACT from Ellen Fitzpatrick's Will: She left the farm to her youngest son, Michael, with small bequests to her son Charles "one bed and bedding, one milch cow and six sheep" and to another son, Henry "one two year old colt, two milch cows, and one hundred Dollars Currency without interest" and to her daughter Elizabeth "one bed and bedding and one milch cow" More About ELLEN COLBERT: Burial: 1924, Holy Trinity Church Cemetery, Lascelles, Quebec.

Annie and her brother, Albert John Allkins (name sometimes spelled as Alkin) have been placed in the Stoke-upon-Trent, Stafford Union Workhouse (poor House) and both are listed as "Paupers". There is no trace of her mother, Martha Annie Allkins (nee Johnson) or her father Henry Charles Allkins, which would include a search of the 1881 census for Staffordshire, England, indeed there is no trace of them throughout England in the 1881 census. We believe that Annie Allkins was taken, from the Stoke-upon-Trent Union Workhouse, by a group under the control of a Miss Birt, and shipped off to Canada in 1884, the Port of Departure was Liverpool, aboard the SS Sardinian, bound for Quebec City. The date of departure was may 08, 1884, and the date of arrival in Quebec City was May 19, 1884. We did find a birth registered for an "Albert Allkins", Newcastle-under-Lyme, in March 1871, on the British BMD Website. We also found a marriage registration for a "Martha Annie Johnson", Newcastle-under-Lyme, in December 1869 (this would be Annie Allkins Mother). we also found a death registration for a "Frances Johnson", age 79, Newcastle-under-Lyme, December 1893, (This would be Annie Allkins grandmother).

Annie Allkins, sometime in 1906/1907 writes several letters to her relatives in England, and they respond, quite overjoyed and relieved that Annie is safe and sound in Canada. There are several people writing to Annie throughout 1907 to 1912, and sending Christmas Cards every year, and lots of photographs, there is one letter in 1924 and another series of letters in the 1937-1941 time period, mostly written by Una Bailey and Annie Bailey (living at 161 High Street, Alsagers Bank, Stafford) and a Tom Hadley, Superintendent with the Prudential Assurance Co., 58 Moloneux Street, Derby, and living at 22 Norfolk Street, Derby. In a letter to Annie Allkins in 1907, from her Aunt Kitty Bailey (wife of Mr. C.D. Haddley), living at 167 High Street, Alsagers Bank, Stafford, England, she indicates to Annie that her brother Albert John Allkins, passed away shortly after Annie was taken from the Union Workhouse in 1884. Her Aunt Kitty Haddley, also indicates that Annie has two other Aunts: Aunt Jennie Bailey (wife of Jabez Bailey), and Harriette Bailey (wife to Geroge Bailey). Her Aunt Jennie Bailey is living at 161 High Street, Alsagers Bank, Stafford, England in the 1907-1912 period, and the Aunt Harriette Bailey is living at Springwood House, Chesterton. It is believed that these three Aunts are all sisters to Annie's mother, Martha Annie Allkins (nee Johnson) The Aunt Kitty Haddley also indicates that she and Annie's grandmother (Frances Johnson), visited the Union Workhouse, and asked if Annie remembered them being there, as she was quite young at the time. The Aunt Kitty also states that in 1884, she and the grandmother again visited the Union Workhouse, with the intent of bringing the children home to live with them (both Annie and her brother Albert John), but were denied access to the Workhouse because of the fever within the facility. They returned to the Union Workhouse three week later, again with the intent of bringing the children home to stay with them, but were told that Annie was gone and that her brother Albert John had passed away, nothing more was given to the Aunt and grandmother, and were refused any requests for additional information. The Aunt Kitty goes on to say "that it broke her grandmother's heart, when they found out that Annie was gone". Nowhere in all of the letters from England, is a mention made about Annie's parents, except for the following comment, "Would Annie please send them a photograph, as they would like to see if she looked like her Mother". Which would lead one to believe that Annie's mother passed away at some point before 1907. Annie's Aunt Jennie and Uncle Jabez Bailey have the following children in 1908: Fred, Frank, Bert, Martha, Annie and Una (Una is living at 161 High Street, Alsagers Bank, Stafford, England in 1937) Her Aunt Kitty Haddley and Uncle Ed (C.D. ) Haddley, have the following children in 1908: Tom, Frank, Willie, Harry, Kitty and Marjorie (Mrs. Pepper, 167 High Street, Alsagers Bank, Stafford in 1838) and perhaps another daughter Alice. Her Aunt Harriette and Uncle George Bailey have a son called Syd Bailey, and are living at Springwood House, Chesterton in 1908. Annie Allkins met Mr. John Fitzpatrick and they were married on September 16, 1908, in Ottawa, Ontario. They settled down to married life and lived on Cambridge Street, in Ottawa. It is interesting to note that the place of residence for both, Annie and John, as listed on the Marriage Certificate was "Denholm, Quebec" (See above 1901 Census). The couple had two sons, unfortunately Francis Edward was born in 1909 and passed away 5 days after he was born. Another son graced the young couple, and George Henry Fitzpatrick was born April 26, 1911. Around 1916, John moved his family up the Gatineau to Low Quebec, close to where he originally came from. John Fitzpatrick writes a letter to the family in England in mid 1937, telling them that Annie is not doing too well, and has lost her vision. The next letter John writes, is a sad one, as he writes to tell then that his Annie has passed away in September 1937. There are many letters from the family in England, expressing their condolences and extreme sadness at Annie's passing. The letter writing continues until 1941, at which point, John Fitzpatrick himself passes away on April 15, 1941. There is one more letter after that, and then the letters stop. It is extremely sad to relate this true story, concerning a little girl, who at the tender age of 4 or 5 years old, was forced to endure the hardship of a Union Workhouse (poor house), being listed as a Pauper, at such an early period in her life, having to endure the loss of her parents, never knowing what happened to them, loosing her only family sibling, her brother Albert John, then to be carted off by a strange group, to a strange far off land, Canada. Annie arrived in Canada, when she was about 9 years old, and from the stories related to us from her son, George Fitzpatrick, she was treated almost worst than a slave, given no education, just the bare necessities of life, and expected to carry the workload of an adult. The original premise of the British Home Children Program, was that there were supposed to be periodic audits carried out on the Children's situation, once they had arrived in Canada, to ensure that the children were properly cared for and educated. It is quite doubtful that the Government Inspection Personnel ever carried out their audits, or if they did, they certainly were turning a blind eye, or eyes at almost everything involving the British Home Children. Needless to say, that throughout Annie's ordeal, she did survive, despite all of the obstacles that were put before her. Can you imagine this little girl, who turned out to be a beautiful lady, not knowing what year she was born, what month or day to celebrate her birthday, and worst of all, never knowing what happened to her parents, and never seeing any of her family again. Annie's ordeal was not unique, as there are untold personal accounts of the trials and tribulations of many of the British Home Children. The figures reach well into the 100,000 number of British Children that were shipped off to Canada, United States and Australia. Quite a unique solution to the British problem of the over-population of their stray and pauper children. Only in Britain you say !!!!!!, pity indeed. I am without doubt, that there were some of the British Home Children that were treated with the dignity and respect that they deserved as human beings, by generous and caring individuals, given the proper education, love and attention and the proper nutrition for a growing child. However there are many horror stories concerning the treatment that many of these children endured throughout their lives, which was not remedied until they made their escape from the situation, of which many did.

George came to Ottawa in 1881, when he was twenty-two years of age. The story is that he worked in a grocery store owned by the Joynt family in the Gatineau, and when they moved to Ottawa, he came too. Magistrate Joynt was always a friend of the family. George married Jessie Taylor from Beachburg, Ontario. Sadly, Jessie died seven days after the birth of their son Dalton Henry and Kenneth died of diphtheria the same year on 5 July, 1902. George kept the whole family together with the exception of the baby, Dalton, who was cared for by George's mother, Ellen, at the farm at Alcove. Mary Taylor "Auntie", a sister of Jessie's, helped George with the six children until the girls , Gladys and Pearl, were able to take over the housekeeping. When George came to Ottawa, he had his own grocery store at the corner of George and William Streets in the Byward Market. He was a devout Anglican, and attended the church at old St. John's Church, which stood on the site of the present Daly Building on Sussex Street. The family was living on Besserer Street, east of Sapper's Bridge, and this is where the older children were born. In the summer of 1896 he decided to relocate to Ottawa South, which was then known as Wyoming Park (Glebe today), and built a house that was located at 72 Seneca Street. George had a great deal to do with the site of the Daly Building, first he attended the Church that originally stood on the site, later when the Daly building was built, he gave up his grocery business on the Markey, and took over management of one of the Capital's most famous old time department stores, that of T. Lindsay, who was the first owner of the Daly Building. When A.E. Rae and Company bought out Lindsay's in 1909, George continued with that organization for some years. George was a good friend of Sam Hughes and when the First World War broke out in 1914, three of his sons and a son-in-law to be, Richard Stetham, all joined up. The first two to do so were Walter and Gerald, who were put into different battalions. The story goes that, at George's request, Sam Hughes was able to out then into the same battalion, and they went overseas.

January 29 - (Special) - Rug Fitzpatrick, 51, well known farmer of Low, underwent amputation of his left leg Thursday afternoon as a result of injuries suffered when he was crushed by logs that fell from a sleigh he was driving. The accident occurred when the tongue of the sleigh broke, swerving the vehicle. The logs tumbled off, one of them crushing Mr. Fitzpatrick against a tree. A search party was sent out and he was found pinned to the tree in an unconscious state. Dr. H.I. Geggie of Wakefield, was called and ordered an ambulance to have him taken to the Sacred Heart Hospital. Dr. John R. Pritchard, of Ottawa was called to the hospital and amputated the leg. Late last evening hospital authorities stated that his condition was serious. The team of horses, instead of running away, turned around, faced the lad and stayed while their master lay helpless.

February 6, 2003: I was absolutely delighted to receive a pointer to the Fitzpatrick site from a distant cousin who lives in BC. You have info. on the great great grandparents of a cousin who is the son of Ella Scullion Peterkin, who is mentioned on the site. He will be tickled PINK to see this info. I have additional info. on that part of the family which I would be pleased to share with you, too, and perhaps you would like to add it to the site. But you have noted that you have info. on later generations of the family. Perhaps we could exchange info. ....? Feel free to contact me at my home e-mail address: Brenda Turner bjturner@magma.ca
May 22, 2003: Al: I am a descendant of William Fitzpatrick, and would like to have the Email address of Ken Armstrong, if you have it. Many thanks Keith Lachance
February 17, 2005: Jeanette Ralph has joined the William Fitzpatrick research project. She, Ken, Brenda and Keith have a great deal of information between them. Hi Ken, Keith, Al and all; I'll attach what I have found. Comparing the info I received from Edmund Brown's files, which were very sketchy, I found the rest of this over the internet in a matter of days. And they said genealogy can't be done on the internet and in a way it's true. Some one had to put it on the net and I thank you all for your hard work. Here's part of what I have on Alma and Edmund. George Nelson Fitzpatrick Born March 17, 1891 in North Wakefield, Quebec Married Matilda Mabel Newcommon born November 16, 1900 Daughter of William (Billie) Newcommon and Margaret (Maggie) Atcheson. They married August 10, 1921 in Alcove, Quebec. George died February 27, 1972 Mabel died June 17, 1989 They are buried in United Cemetery, Low Quebec. ... Jeanette
March 14, 2011: Greetings: My grandmother was Bessie who was Ellen Jane Fitzpatrick's daughter and my great grandmother. Bessie Scullion Fitzpatrick married Otto Fredrick Lang who I had seen on a site that she married a Langford which is incorrect. My grandmother Bessie's father was killed in the mines. Ellen Jane remarried a man by the last name of Curren and is buried in Ottawa at Johnson's Corner's cemetery. East Templeton Cemetery where Ellen Jane is noted as Nellie Fitzpatrick - same people. Second site, search for Curran. This is Ellen Jane's second husband. She was 12 years older than him. http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~snaylor/GatineauCity/ETempleU/ETEMPLEU.HTM http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~snaylor/OntarioGraveMarkers/Gloucester/Johnstons/JOHNSTONS.htm I hope that this information is helpful. The information that you provided on your site has really been helpful to me and my family. Sincerely, Laura
