I was at the Curraghmore House in 2016 as my ancestors are from the area. I would like to say they worked there but I have no clue. John Britt married Ellen Tierney in the parish of Portlaw and Ballyduff in 1834. They left for Canada in 1837 and John listed his occupation as "Farmer" in Bytown (Ottawa). There is also a Patrick Britt born approx. 1812 who joined John and Ellen in Ottawa. An Ellen Britt also lived with John and Ellen in Bytown and I have not as yet been able to prove that she was John's sister. There was also a Thomas Tieney from the same parish who married an Alic Flynn in 1831 and the Tierneys and Britts were godparents for each other's children. I have been looking for John and Ellen's parents but again, I have a few leads but no proof. I would like to hear from anyone who may have had these people in their tree.
P.S. Patrick Britt left for Canada with his wife Johanne Brennan and their daughter Ellen born in 1839 in Ireland. D. Britt
