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.April 5, 2020 at 1:00 pm #5483Bob HellingsParticipant

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.
