Searching for any information on my ancestors:HENNESSY/HENNESSEY and CARROLL who emigrated from Fermoy, Co. Cork and FLAHERTY who emigrated from Kilworth, Co. Cork, as part of the British government sponsored 1825 PeterRobinson Settlement to Ontario, Canada.
According to family wills, there were numerous HENNESSY and FLAHERTY descendants living in Peterborough, Emily and Ennismore, Ontario, in 1868 and into the early 1900's at least.
Thomas HENNESSY/HENNESSEY b. 1787 Fermoy, Co. Cork
Ann/Nancy CARROLL, b. about 1790, Fermoy, Co. Cork
Children, all born Fermoy, co. Cork:
John b. 1807
Thomas b 1810
Michael b. 1812
Bridget b. 1814
Daniel b. 1818
William b. 1822
Patrick b. 1821 (my g-grandfather)
The HENNESSY family was relocated to the town of Emily, Ontario Province, Canada in 1825, after sailing on the ship "John Barry".The landlord of the property Thomas Hennessey leased in Fermoy was named Thomas Walker, Esq.
Thomas Hennessy died between 1828-1830 in Emily, Ont. Canada.His widow, Ann/Nancy remarried another Peter Robinson Settler, Patrick FLAHERTY and they emigrated, with Ann's son Patrick, to Medina, NY, USA and then to Geneva, Ontario Co., NY where they remained the rest of their lives.
John, Thomas, and Michael HENNESSY stayed in Canada, married and had families. John married Ellen FLAHERTY, sister of Patrick FLAHERTY, in Ennismore, Ontario. Thomas HENNESSY Jr. married an unknown woman and Michael married Elizabeth Bolster. Bridget and Daniel HENNESSY relocated to the Buffalo, NY area, abt. 1830 where Bridget married a Mr. HICKEY and Daniel married Margaret CASSEY. Daniel/Margaret subsequently moved to Geneva, NY.
I believe that Patrick FLAHERTY was the son of another Peter Robinson Settlement Family who traveled on the ship "Fortitude" and was settled in Emily, Ontario, Canada:
FLAHERTY, James, b.1775
Wife Mary b. 1777
James, Ellen, Michael, Patrick, Thomas, Denis, James & Edmond
Any information on any of these families would be greatly appreciated. Willing to share my data with others.Thanks, Sue Moran, CT, USA
