Hans HAWTHORN and Sarah WARD
County Down, Ireland to Carleton Place, Ontario, Canada, in 1842

`
HAWTHORN, Hans (b. 1801, Down, Ireland) and wife, Sarah Ward (b. 1808, 
Down, Ireland), arrived in Carleton Place in 1842 from County Down, Ireland 
with their children: Thomas (b. 1830, Killinchy, Down), Hans II (1837, b. at sea 
between Ireland and Scotland), Samuel (b. 1839, Barony, Lanark, Scotland), 
Sarah (b. 1840, Barony, Lanark, Scotland) and had Agnes (b. 1842, Carleton 
Place) and Margaret (b. 1847, Carleton Place).  In 1850, Hans and his family 
moved to Greenock Twp, Bruce County, Ontario.  
 
HAWTHORNE, Patrick (b. 1815, Down, Ireland) and Selena Downey 
(b. 1816, Down, Ireland) arrived in Carleton Place in 1847 from County Down, 
Ireland newly wed.  Patrick was the younger brother of Hans.  He and his family 
settled in Goulbourn Twp eventually. They had the following children: William John (1847),
George Charles (1849), Eliza Jane (1852), Thomas (1855), Archibald Cameron (1860), Annie (1870)  
 
There was another brother who came over from Down with Patrick, but we 
haven't determined who he was as of yet.  Patrick and Hans were the sons of 
John Hawthorn (occupation:shoemaker) and Agnes Kane of Down, Ireland.
