May 7, 2009: Speaking of New Brunswick, Anne Burgess is researching the emigrants who came to Ontario and New Brunswick, between 1845 and 1854, from the Fitzwilliam Estate in County Wicklow, Ireland. Here is an e-mail from Anne: Hi Al, This really is about bodies! I've found that pretty well all of the families on the CD who were to go to St. Andrews, NB did in fact go there, travelling on the ship, the Star. Now I've just found this website on unmarked graves in New Brunswick, and it says knowledge of these unmarked graves (below) has been passed on by word of mouth only. Very sad. HOSPITAL ISLAND WEIR family of Ireland, in 1846. From the ship "Star" Patrick BYRNE, age 2. Son of John and Mary BYRNE of Kilballyowen, County Wicklow, Ireland, May 29, 1848. Michael FURLONG, age 47. Husband of Elizabeth FURLONG of Ballard, County Wicklow, Ireland, June 5, 1848. Daniel/Dennis KEALY/KEELEY, age 60/70. Husband of Catherine KEALY / KEELEY / KEALEY OF Liscolman, County Wicklow, Ireland, June 7, 1848. Peter McDANIEL/McDONNELL, age 12. Son of Francis & Ellen McDANIEL / McDONNELL, of Kilballyowen, County Wicklow, Ireland, May 29, 1848 Terrence McDANIEL / McDONNELL, age 16. Son of Francis & Ellen McDANIEL McDONNELL, of Kilballyowen, County Wicklow, Ireland, June 2, 1848 Ellen MEAGHER / MAHER, age 6. Daughter of Thomas & Ann MEAGHER/MAHER of Coolfancy, County Wicklow, Ireland, May 31, 1848. Martin NOWLAN / NOLAN age 9. Son of Pat & Betty NOWLAN/NOLAN of Moylisha, County Wicklow, Ireland. May 31, 1848. John SUMMERS age 50. Husband of Betty SUMMERS of Newry, County Wicklow, Ireland, June 4, 1848. Pat TYRRELL age 70 of County Wicklow, Ireland, June 4, 1848. Margaret WHITE age 37. Wife of David WHITE (deceased) of Coolfancy, County Wicklow, Ireland, June 7, 1848. Richard JONES age 40. Husband of Mazzy JONES of Ballyshonog, County Wicklow, Ireland (date unknown) 1848. Charlotte and Henry HOLLAND tended the sick on the Island, contracted the fever and died. Being local inhabitants, they may have been brought to the mainland to be buried. Other wise, they too were interred there, 1848. Other "Star" passengers are also buried there as well as passengers from the "Elizabeth Grimmer", the Magna Charta" and the "James". This information supplied by Ann Breault using Journals of the N.B. Legislature and the book Surplus People by Jim Rees (Collins Press, Cork, Ireland, 2000), Appendix 1, a record of families who left the Fitzwilliam Estate in County Wicklow, Ireland, for St. Andrews, New Brunswick. Note: See the web pages about emigration from the Fitzwilliam Estate in County Wicklow who came to Ottawa, Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec at Catholics and Protestants. ... Anne Burgess

Moses H. Perley was the Emigrant Agent for New Brunswick. Members of his family came to Ottawa, Ontario, Canada in time to be enumerated in the 1881 Census there. They were partners in the lumbering firm of Perley and Pattee at Fort Coulonge, Lower Canada, 40 miles west of Ottawa. See them on the above census list.
