MAINS surname, from County Fermanagh, Ireland to Goulbourn Township, Ontario, Canada and area
February 21, 2008:
Mr. Bill Mains is researching the following families and has a lot of information.
"You can add my name re Mains, Featherston, Cathcart, Morton and
Seabrook on the Goulbourn page. There were five Mains siblings who
immigrated: 1) my ancestor settled in Marlborough, 2) a brother in
Marlborough, relocating to Nepean, 3) a brother in North Gower, 4) a
brother in Richmond, relocating to Lambton Co. and 5) a sister married
John Morton in Goulbourn."
(Bill also is interested in "The Derry" in Beckwith Township. The Derry was named
for some early Scottish settlers. Most of the Irish pioneers came to the Derry from
Wexford and Kilkenny.)
