BOOK - Leinster to Lanark
By Carol Bennett McCuaig

Softcover... 35.00 (C$)

In the years following the 1798 Insurrection in Ireland a large group of settlers from the Irish counties of Carlow, Kilkenny, Wexford and Wicklow came to Lanark County in the Ottawa Valley. Many others from the same places, often related to them, settled in the adjoining counties of Leeds and Carleton.

A careful comparison has been made between the huge amount of historical and genealogical research carried out by the author over the past forty years, and the ‘Elly lists’ which are in the National Archives of Canada. These are not ships’ passenger lists as some people believe, but a roster of men who, in 1817, expressed a wish to sail for Upper Canada with their families in 1818, more than five thousand people in all. While not all of them proceeded with their plans, hundreds of others left Ireland over the following decade.

In due course some members of these pioneer families moved to other parts of the province, their destination being the counties of Bruce, Grey, Hastings, Huron, Lambton and Renfrew, among others. Many other descendants still reside on their families’ original lots in Lanark County. Genealogical information pertaining to the pioneer generation has been included for hundreds of families. In addition to this the author has included stories which have been handed down in some of the families concerning their ancestors’ experiences in south-eastern Ireland in 1798.
