Wilkinson/Cullen

Putting another shout-out in hopes someone new will see this and recognize these people.  Looking for a Wilkinson family of Dublin circa 1700's.  My g-g-g-grandfather, Patrick Wilkinson immigrated to Montreal, Quebec, Canada in the year 1821 where he married first, Elizabeth Comyns, and then next, Mary Ann Lavery.  The immigration records show he was born in Dublin, in 1800.  His parents are given as Thomas Wilkinson and Elizabeth Cullen (Collins, Collon.  The spellings change depending on the records.)  Thomas and Elizabeth remained in Ireland.  I think there may have been a sister named Anne.  I'm hoping this gets a hit.  Thanks!

  • Thank you Brendan!!  I had the first record, but the second is new for me.  I see the name Bulger showing up on both, wondering how they are connected.

  • I notice that the sponsers for Anna are a patrick Wilkinson and an Elizabeth Bulger...maybe the grandparents?  Uncle and aunt?  I'm going to guess grandparents, and MY Patrick was named for him.  It would make sense of the Bulger connection...maybe it's Thomas's mother's name.

  • Hi Gayle,

     

    It is unusual to see such a strong connection, the Bulgers must be very close relations.
