Patrick JORDAN and Mary Margaret DOYLE
Ireland to the Gatineau Valley
January 27, 2006:
Researching my GGG Grandfather Patrick Jordon 1799-12 April 1859
Pointe Gatineau, Que.), R.C. resident of Templeton, Que., who married Mary
Margaret Doyle abt. 1810, I noted an unconfirmed relationship in Bytown's 1842
Census. With heads of household only, it records a Patrick Jordan
(Family #35) of three (attending) the Church of Rome; no other information is
Their first born, my GG Grandmother, is Mary Bridgitte ca 1824
(Ireland)-20 Dec. 1916 (Ottawa) who was later blessed with siblings
Michael b. 1842, Margaret b. 1847, Jeanne b. 1849, Bridget b. 1850, Patrick
b. 1855, Helen b. 1857 and Elizabeth b. unknown. Ca 1839, Mary Bridgette
married Michael Morris 1812-before 1889 (Ottawa or St. Cloud, Minnesota, USA.)
"of Wright, Yeoman, (who) in Ref. 14800, # 156, (0-2033) received a Land Grant
of 160 acres for $97.20 - ²the Lot number Thirty-seven in Range Letter C of
the Twp. of Wright (County Ottawa, Province of Canada) aforesaid, being an
irregular Lot bounded on front to the South by the River Gatineau, and to the
North by the Third Range of said Township, recorded 14 November 1864.²
In related evidence :
(a) The 1894-95 Ottawa Directory, Mary Morris, widow of Michael and
homeowner, is living at 50 Murray St. together with Michael J., Clerk.
(b) The 1889-90 Ottawa Directory, John lived with his mother, Mary
Bridget, a widow of Michael and homeowner with Mary and Theresa (classified as a
boarder) at 50 Murray St., Ottawa.
I would welcome any related comment.
Kevin: I have a feeling that this Jordan family may be related to the James Jordan
family of Osgoode Township. There are common surnames in the 1840's -
Doyle and Corrigan and common connections to East Templeton.
I'll keep an eye out.
The following 1881 census shows a Margaret Jordan, born in Ireland. Widow of Patrick?
