    Patrick Brown 1791-1880-Kilkenny- Sound Island Placentia Bay
    Sons Phillip, Michael and James and daughter Catherine?

    Would love to hear from anyone connected with these families. Generally Roman Catholic although marriages with the Methodist families of Sound Island. Also in Bar Haven, Paradise, St. Leonards, St Kyrans, St Johns and Grand Falls. We have gathered a lot of info, but some blanks-names of wives, a Peter Browne died in 1891 leaving wife and five children? James died August 1856 leaving wife and three children.

    Connected to Collins, O’Reilly, Sullivan, Ryan, French, Garland, Power, Bonia, Doyle.

    Hi Brenda,

    Not sure if you are still looking for info but my grandfather was an Atkins born on Sound Island to William Atkins and Mary Ann(e) Brown.

    Thanks

    Hi Brenda,

    I’m a descendant of Martin Canning from Sound Island and his wife Bridget Canning (Murphy), and I’m currently located in Ireland. Martin was born in Wexford Ireland circa 1795 and died in Piper’s Hole around 1855. His wife Bridget Canning (Murphy) was born in 1811 (Wexford) and died in Deep Cove circa 1885. They had a son Peter Canning who was born on Sound Island May 30 1843 and died in Presque “of old age” (according to the records). Peter Canning got married to Mary Ryan; she was born in Presque around May 3 1849 and died December 13 1913. Peter Canning lent his son Bernard Canning – Bernard moved to Merasheen – his boat while he was sick. My great grandfather (Bernard) was a very young Captain.

    If anyone can help me with any information about Martin and Bridget Canning of Sound Island and their son Peter Canning I would really appreciate it. I would love to know where Bridget and Martin are buried, and if they had siblings. Also I would like to know if Peter Canning (1843) had siblings. Any information about the CANNING family from Sound Island, Presque would be greatly appreciated. Likewise if I can help anyone with information they need, please let me know. Peter (1843), Mary, and “James Canning” (born around 1850) are buried at St.Kyrans. I have a lot of family buried in Presque, mainly my great grandfather’s (Bernard Canning) siblings and wives, as well as others.

    Many thanks,

    Cat Canning

    So pleased to see replies. To Bob- yes, I think I have the Atkins in the family tree collected about 1991. It is lovely to hear from you. And Cat Canning. I have come across the name Canning many times- recently I think in the Placentia Family Records at the Rooms. And possibly in the Facebook pages for St. Leonards-St Kyrans and South East Bight. I believe Gail Taylor has many or all of the records listed at the Rooms for the families in the communities around isle Valen, St. Kyrans, etc. I think permission was recently given to copy the files. Have you checked the files from John Mannion and Keith Matthews-there may be gems in there. I found that the Brown family arrived a few years earlier to Sound Island-about 1808-1810, and that the Irish Catholic Community included MicMac people. Philip Brown later supplied people like James Howley-1870’s and the guides that accompanied him were Mic Mac. I understood that the MicMac lived in the area of Irish town until the 1850s-this from someone who has done much deeper research than I have. Thank you for contacting me. Do you know what the Murphy background is? I have DNA connections around Bacon Cove, Holyrood, etc, with a Murphy family. There was speculation that Patrick Brown may have married a Murphy.

    Hi Brenda, thank you so much for filling me in. I recently received DNA information that placed my ancestor Martin Canning’s family
    (MC Planter of Sound Island) originally from the area of Bri,County Wexford Ireland. I also received DNA information that placed his wife Bridget Murphy’s family originally from Wexford Town Ireland. I’ll check out the rooms and see what they have for Canning genealogy, thank you for that. At the mo I’m trying to find the original Canning homestead, and it looks like it might be in the enniscorthy area close to the Slaney River. x
