People from the Fitzwilliam estate who settled in Ontario, 1847-55

In the late 1840s a program of assisted emigration was initiated by Lord Fitzwilliam to reduce the number of tenants on his estate in southwest County Wicklow Ireland. Most of these emigrants sailed from New Ross to Quebec City, but few of them stayed in Quebec, where the population was for the most part French-speaking. Instead, they continued on up the St. Lawrence River to the province of Ontario (then called Upper Canada) and became part of Irish communities there.

The following data was compiled by Anne Burgess. It lists many of the Irish from the Fitzwilliam estate who settled in the West 1/2 of Ontario, from roughly Belleville to Lake Huron.

People that settled in the East 1/2 of ontario can be found at Find Death Records on Ancestors at A Story of Emigration: Southwest Wicklow to Ontario, Canada
