Michael WHITE, 1823 to Goulbourn Township, Carleton County, Ontario (Peter Robinson Settler)
Posted by Dale Miller Payne to the Carleton County Genealogy List on Sun, 13 Aug 2000
Need help on my Michael WHITE, born 1795 in Clogheen, Tipperary, Ireland,
immigrated to Goulbourn Township, Carleton Co, Ontario on July 8, 1823 on the
transport "Hebe". He was 1 of 26 immigrants that were selected to settle on a
70 acre tract of land which was still in his name in 1836, despite his moving onto
Passaic County, New Jersey, USA by 1828. Believe he married about 1825 to a French
Canadian named Catherine while in Goulbourn. Their first son to survive
(2 infant sons died, no names) was James M. WHITE, born March 11, 1828 in
Passaic Co, NJ. 3 more sons & 1 daughter were also born to them. Who is this
Catherine? Are there records regarding an "Irish settlement" in Goulbourn from
this time period? Will there be a marriage record for this union? Can someone
do "look-ups" on the marriage, land deed and local history that explains the
area in the 1820-1830s or point me in the right direction. Was Carleton Co
ever part of Quebec?
Thanx for all assistance....Dale

Peter Robinson Settler in 1825
Origin: Clogheen, Tipperary
Location: "Went to Ottawa to join her husband"
from Diana Motyer who is researching another White family in Huntley and March
Anyone able to look up for me on the 1851 census. Huntley
and March township for Robert White and his brother
James White. Supposedly came in 1840.
James would be about 29 years old in 1851
Robert would be about 35 years old in 1851
Looking for help in tracing my ancestors James White bn 1822
and his brother Robert bn 1812. Both men came from somewhere
in Ireland. Immigrated abt 1840. They settled in the
Huntley and March township areas.
Would like to trace them back to Ireland somehow.
I have added your James White to the web page of Michael White (see below).
I believe they were related. (NOT)
The Michael White farm was in Goulbourn Township, almost on the Huntley
border. The family attended St. Michael's Church in Corkery Ontario (in
Huntley), just down the road.
They came from Clogheen, Tipperary in 1823.
There is a James White born 1822, died 1898 at age 76 buried in that
Would this be your James? Some members of these families went to the U.S.

Thankyou for your efforts but I'm sure this Michael and the James I'm searching
are not related.
I will relay the information I have in hopes it may make for some sense to
I know these two men presumed brothers came from Ireland.
James bn 1822 and died about 1902
He married firstly Mary Sproule ( a minor under 16) documented the parish Christ
Church. (Anglican Church)
1. Eliza bn 1850
2. Isabella 1852
3. John bn 1854-1925
4. Henry "Charles" 1859-1939
5. Thomas bn/dd 1862
6. Robert James 1863-1867
7. Mary Jane 1865
8. George 1867-1940
Mary Sproule suppposedly died in child birth of George.
James remarries a widow by the name of Rose Gaynor in 1874
1. Robert James 1875-1943
2. Alice "sis" abt 1878
James brother Robert married Mary McVartney and are both buried in the Christ
CHurch Anglican Cemetary in Huntley.
According to the 1901 census James immigrated in 1840
and Robert in 1846. It is the name of their parents and where they were born
family tree stops. Of course I still have many gaps in their decendants too.
Thank you for allowing me to submit this information.
Robert and James came from County Tyrone, Ireland. They were brothers.
Robert's wife was Mary McCartney.
