My ancestor Owen Preston married Ellen Reddy. Their son John Preston married Bridget Burke in 1845 in Buckingham, Quebec.

  • Carol:

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    Records for Kilfian RC parish go back to October 1826 for baptisms  and July 1826 for marriages. I searched on the subscription site Roots Ireland and did not locate the marriage record. There were four baptismal records for children: Mary 1827 Catherine 1830 Peter 1833 James 1834.

    John was likely born before October 1826.

    the Tithe records indicate the family lived in Seeghanbaun townland.

  • Thank you Roger. John was born in 1819. He settled in Canada; did you know there's a small community in Quebec named Mayo. There's even a shrine dedicated to Our Lady of Knock.

  • Hi Catherine,  Found a Owen Preston on the Census for 1901 and 1911, he lives there with his sister in Kilfian West, could be some of your ancestors, just a thought as irish families would pass the same names on down through the generations. Here is a twk screen shots of the two Census, you never know!
