John Laurence KILROE and Mary DUNN
also James McGUIRE and Ann SMITH
Ireland to Nepean Township
I am researching the Kilroe, Lennon, McGuire, McCarthy, Baxter lines.
The Kilroes came over from Ireland in 1841 and settled in Nepean.
There were 14 of them, I have identified 8 of them.I am looking for more info
There's a Mary DUNN, died Feb 15, 1872, aged 84 years. Her husband was
Laurence KILROE (no dates). Also Stephen Kilroe died Jan 13, 1888, aged 62 years.
Same plot, at St. Patrick's in Fallowfield.
Were they first Kilroes to come from Ireland? Do you know from which County in
Ireland they came?
Picture is of my great grandparents[ I believe] taken aprox. 1860. Stephen
Kilroe, Mary, nee Moore, and their oldest son Lawrence. The name I have for
my gggrandfather is John [could be John Lawrence] I then would be the 5th
generation with the name lawrence , and my son would be the 6th. I have
Mary Dunn as my gg great grandmother. this is from the St. patricks grave
yard. I have her death being in 1873 . this is from the St. Patrick Parish
records, my Grandfathers birth is on the same page. I believe ggg John died
in Kingston. I am looking for some confirmation on this.
Stephen Kilroe is buried with his mother [Mary Dunn} My grandfather always
said that they came from Cork, but I think that is just where they left from.

All of the following from Taylor Kennedy, a good friend, even if a fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs!
Nice to hear from a descendent of the Township of Nepean. Now I am not
related to Philip Kennedy (as yet, he he) but I do have some of the census
papers here plus St. Patrick Church cemetery records so here is what I found
for you with what I have here. I hope it helps you a little bit. Take care
P.S. Judging by your email address, you must be in Alberta? Next time I'm
checking the census records, I'll keep Philip in mind.

Hi Ernie & Al
I chuckled at my note that I sent you a month or so regarding not being connected
as yet to Philip Kennedy. Well Philip Kennedy and Mary Kilroe's daughter Catherine Kennedy,
married Michael Hawley, son of Roderick Hawley of Nepean. They married December 30, 1879 and
headed back to Minnesota.

More from Taylor:
From the Ontario Archives, MS 929, Reel # 6, Registration # 021689 shows Ellen Kilroe
being born to Michael Kilroe and Bridget Dunn on September 16, 1870. Michael listed as a
farmer and father of the child resided on Lot 8 in Concession 2 in the Township of Nepean.
This birth was registered by the Registrar F. W. Harmer on September 7, 1871.
And this from Al:
1842 Census of Nepean:
Two heads of Families living on the same property:
John Kilroe and ? Spain.
Both listed as labourers, 2 from England, 14 natives of Ireland, all church of Rome
100 acres, 4 acres cleared, had 3 head of cattle and 3 hogs.
previous year produced 5 bushels of wheat, 25 barley, 40 oats, 5 Indian corn, 100 potatoes.
November 15, 2002:
I am one of the Kilroes from South Africa and have researched the origins of
the family. It is almost certain that your family came originally from
Roscommon and the areas surrounding it. The locals are well aware of the
families having the name Kilroe all coming from that area. If you get to
Ireland you should visit Roscommon where Kilroes still live to this day and
they will I am sure be only too happy to show you round the area. I have some
very old family records which I brought back from the Kilroes in New
York / Honesdale and will look up the records if you are interested. Our family
crest is very specifically three dolphins rampant and the family motto is AD
FINEM FIDELIS. This coat-of-arms was emblazoned into the giant doors of the
Kilroe (Fathers of the Sacred Heart) seminary in Honesdale P.A. The seminary
was closed during the Vietnam war as the numbers seeking entry dropped
dramatically..Hope this is of some value and that it will help in your

To Jim McKenna from Ernie Kilroe:
Hi my name is Ernie Kilroe, I believe that James Mcguire and Ann Smith are
my gg grandparents . They had a son Michael [Mick] Mcguire whom married
Mary [Molly] Lennon. They had a daughter Catherine [Katie] whom married my
grandfather Thomas Kilroe..
I have been unable to prove the link between Michael and James, and am
wondering if you have any more info on the Mcguire family?? Thank you for any
help you can provide.. Ernie.

Here's a lot of research and notes and Census stuff on the McGuires.
Ann McGuire (d/o James & Ann) was my Great Grandmother who married Thomas McKenna
(s/o Bernard McKenna):
Thomas McKanna (as spelled by the priest) son of BARNARD McKanna and Margaret
CORRIGAN (deceased) of Gloucester (Ontario) married Ann Mc Guire, daughter of
James McGuire and Ann SMITH on March 3rd 1862.
The bridegroom "signed along with the witnesses":
Jane Catharine McKenna (as signed by her)
Thomas McKenna (as written by Thomas)
Early Census records concerning James & Ann McGuire in Nepean:
Census 1851 McGuire family - Nepean
James b- Ireland 41
Ann (wife) b-Irel. 41
Michael b-Irel. 18
ANN b-Irel. 16
Laurence b-Irel. 14
Mary b-Irel. 12
Elizabeth b-Irel. 10
Patrick b-Irel. 8
Bridget b-Irel. 6
Jane b-Irel 4
Census 1861: Mc Guires -Nepean
James b-Irel. 50
Ann wife b-Irel. 45

Laurence b-Irel. 21
Mary b-Irel. 19
Eliza b- Canada West 17
Patrick b-CanW 15
Bridget b-CanW 13
Jane b-Can W 11
It's also interesting that the second census now records that from Elizabeth
onward all the other kids were born in Ontario (called Canada West before
Confederation in 1867). That would mean that Ann came over from Ireland in the mid 1840s..
which makes sense. That was during the great Potato Famine in Ireland when many farm
workers were put on boats and it also explains why they were uneducated.
If nothing else we can see that Ann was still living with her family in 1861. Her first
born, Elizabeth was 8 yrs. old when the census came by in 1871. So can we safely assume
that Ann met and married Thomas sometime between late 1861 and 1862 in Nepean.
McGuires -Census 1871
James 57 b-Irel. (illit).
Ann McGuire 56 b- Ireland and also illiterate,
Lawrence 26, b- Ireland (also can't read nor write).
Elizabeth 23 born in Ontario who is literate

Thanks to Sue for the following:
You may already have this information, but I found it in the online Ontario BMD
registrations (images of actual registrations) at Ancestry.com.
Death: Mary Kilroe, born county Tipperary, died 20 Feb 1873 at age 94 in Nepean,
widow of Lawrence. Informant was son Stephen Kilroe of Nepean.
Death: Bridget Kilroe, born Hull, Quebec, died 29 Nov 1885 at age 50, wife of
Michael Kilroe. Informant was son Laurence Kilroe of Nepean.
Death: Michael Kilroe, born county Cavan, died 10 May 1889 at age 72.
Death: Stephen Kilroe, born county Tipperary, died 13 Jan 1888 in Nepean at
age 65. Informant was son Lawrence Kilroe
Death: Lawrence Kilroe, born Jockvale, died Fallowfield 28 July 1893 at age 34,
(son of Stephen and Mary)
Death: Lawrence Kilroe, born Nepean, died Nepean 20 Nove 1902 at age 47,
(son of Michael and Bridget)
Death: Ann Kilroe, born Nepean, died 6 Oct 1870 in Carleton county at age 7, a
daughter of Michael & Bridget
Death: Patrick Kilroe, born Nepean, died 25 May 1899 in Nepean, at age 37.
Informant was John Kilroe.
also from Sue: Tierney surname listed as Kilroe in the 1861 Census
1861 Nepean census
Kilroe, Steven - 30 yrs. - married
Kilroe, Mary - 28 yrs. - married (Maiden name Moore)
Kilroe, Lawrence - 5 yrs.
Kilroe, Mary - 4 yrs.
Kilroe, Catherine - 2 yrs.
Kilroe, Mary - 15 yrs. ********
Kilroe, John - 12 yrs. ********
***** This is actually Mary Tierney, born 24 May 1848
***** This is actually John Tierney, born 26 May 1846
For some reason, their ages seem to be reversed. These are children of Denis
Tierney and his 1st wife Bridget Kilroe (Stephen's sister). Bridget died sometime
before the 1851/1852 census was taken and Denis remarried in 1852 (to Mary Ann Kitts).
Mary Tierney is with the Kilroe family in the 1851/1852 census, age will be 4 at
her next birthday. I have no idea where her brother John is in this census -
perhaps he was just forgotten to be added in!
October 22, 2007:
Thanks again to Sue for the following info regarding the family of James TIERNEY
and Mary CORCORAN:
In the 1851 census there is a James and Mary Tierney, with 6-yr-old son Jamy.
With them is Denis Tierney.
This same couple is in the 1881 Osgoode, Russell census (badly transcribed as Gienuy !) as:
James, 67, born Ireland
Mary 55, born Ireland
**the following children are born in Ontario****
Missing is Margueret (sp), who was born in the 1850's and married 1873 William Howe /
Hough (born in North Gower, a son of Thomas Howe and Hannah O'Hare). Margaret and
William had at least 7 children, surnamed Howe (Mary who married Walter Withers in
1896 in Richmond - Sarah Tierney of Gloucester was a witness; Thomas; Sarah;
William; John; Emma; William A.)
Mary Corcoran Tierney, the matriarch, died in Osgoode 21 Dec 1911. On her death
registration, her father is listed as P. Corcoran. She is also found in the 1901
Osgoode census, a widow (and as Terney) with son John (single and listing his
birthdate as 24 May 1864). With them as well is John's younger sister Sarah C.
(single and birthdate as 10 June 1868) and Mary E. T. Howe (born Ellen Mary
Tierney Howe 11 Aug 1898, the only child of James and Mary's daughter Mary (who
married 1897 to Thomas Howe of county Tipperary - Mary died before the 1901 census).
Coincidentally, Thomas, born abt 1849 in Tipperary, was a son of Martin Howe and
Ellen Tierney (obviously married in Tipperary). Martin Howe was born in Ireland
abt 1820 and died in North Gower in 1877.
Of the remaining children of James Tierney and Mary Corcoran, Ann married 1885
William Howe who was born abt 1853 in North Gower, a son of Martin Howe and
Son William married 1896 Elizabeth Powers (born abt 1873 in South Gloucester, a
daughter of John Powers and Ann Fagen/Faighan / Fagan).
Son James married Bridget Kilroe, a daughter of Stephen Kilroe and Mary Moore.
They are in the 1901 Osgoode, Russell census, immediately next door to brother
John Tierney (as Terney) and mother Mary. In this census, James and Bridget
Kilroe Tierney have 8 chidren (Mary, James, Catherine, Ellen, Annie Margaret,
Steven, May, and Veronica).
I cannot find daughter Sarah after the 1901 census nor can I find son John Tierney.
The question remains, who was James Tierney? According to the 1881 census, he
was born abt 1814 in Ireland and his first child, son James (Jamy), born Nepean,
was going to turn 6 at his next birthday in the 1851 census, so James obviously
emigrated from Ireland sometime before 1846. How is he (or is he?) related to the
Denis Tierney family of Nepean?
More pieces of the incomplete puzzle!
February 18, 2008:
More from Sue:
To add a bit more to the Kilroe puzzle, I found this in the Drouin collection,
a baptism at Notre Dame in Ottawa
Baptized 17 December, 1832, Ann, a daughter of Thomas KILROE and Bridget ROONEY.
