HEADON / HAYDEN / HAYDON family from County Wicklow, Ireland
to Kingston, Ontario, Canada in 1848
July 20, 2010:
My ancestors the Haydens (Haedon) on my mother's side were part of the assisted immigrants from Wicklow
and came in 1848 on ship Jessie. They settled in Kingston originally including son John Haedon
who later settled in Alexandria a brother of my great great grandfather Thomas who went to Port Hope
circa 1855. John and Catherine HAEDON are on your list as well as one son John and a daughter Ellen .
I just learned of your book " A Story Of Immigration" .
Anne Burgess has sent in the following description of this family.

and Ian replies:
Yes you can add Thomas to the list . I don't think Betty Jordan came over. I can't find any related Jordans
at all in Canada . My search continues for what happened to Winnie and Robert and don't know who Mary
may have married here . Most of them are listed in the 1861 census for Kingston . It's too bad that the
1850 census for "town" of Kingston was apparently lost .
The haydens settled in Kingston where both John Hayden and Catherine are burried in St.Mary's cemetery
there although there are no tombstones .Thomas Hayden,my great great grandfather settled in Port Hope
circa 1855 where he operated a foundry until he died in 1908.
I have no early pictures of any of the original family who were aboard the Jessie. Maybe someday.
