Emigration Famine & other Records for Co. Wicklow

A Story of Emigration:  Southwest Wicklow to Ontario by Anne Burgess and  Joseph Kenny

In his book, Surplus People, Jim Rees has described the program of assisted emigration that Lord Fitzwilliam initiated in the late 1840s to reduce the number of tenants on his estate in southwest Wicklow. Most of these emigrants sailed from New Ross, County Wexford, to Quebec City, but few of them stayed in Quebec, where the population was for the most part French-speaking. Instead, they continued on up the St. Lawrence River to the province of Ontario (then called Upper Canada) and became part of Irish communities there. The following details the chain migration that drew them to two such communities.

Eastern Ontario

The British government’s creation of the Rideau Canal in eastern Ontario (1826-1832) was accomplished with the labour (and in some cases, the lives) of many Irish workers from the Fitzwilliam estate in southwest Co. Wicklow.

We know at least some of their names, recorded in an 1829 petition (the McCabe List)[i] to have family members join them:

John Byrnes, ML 142 of Ballynultagh (family at Knockatomcoyle);

James Byrnes (family at Muskeagh);

William Hopkins, ML 233 (Coolkenna); Thomas Hawkins (Kiltegan);

Charles Dowgard (?) (Tinahely);

Daniel Murphy(Coolbeg (Killabeg?);

Lancelot Jackson, ML 662 (Tullow, Aghowle);

Matthew Dunn


The Canal, intended to provide a navigable link between the Ottawa River and the town of Kingston, Ontario to the west, provided wage work for the labourers. It also provided them with an opportunity, at the time of the Canal’s completion, to acquire grants of land along the route.

Thus, in the 1840s when Lord Fitzwilliam’s tenants began arriving in Canada, the Rideau Canal labourers from southwest Wicklow, now settlers, were the source of new Canadian homes for many of the emigrés.

A large number of Fitzwilliam emigrés from the Carnew area settled around Smiths Falls, many of them part of the extended family of Edward Balfe of Kennystown, and the families they were connected to by marriage. This area around Smiths Falls includes the townships of Kitley, Lombardy, North and South Elmsley, Bastard, North and South Crosby, Wolford, Montague, Yonge, and Burgess.

Edward Balfe had two relatives who had worked on the Rideau Canal: his brother, John Balfe (m. Mary Byrne) of Gurteen; and his niece’s (Mary Balfe) husband, Michael Shanks of Boley. These early Balfes had acquired land in Kitley; it and South Elmsley, farming townships close to Smiths Falls, were home to a number of other Canal workers, as well.

In the late 1840s, Michael and Mary Shanks offered a welcome to their Balfe connections from Carnew: John Balfe and Alice Dobbs (from Parkmore); Thomas Balfe and Sarah Kenny (from Kennystown); Nicholas Balfe and Catherine Kealey (from Kennystown); Michael Lowman and Mary Balfe (from Carnew), along with Michael’s brother, Thomas; James Foster and Margaret Balfe (from Carnew); Thomas Kenny and Eleanor Purcell (from Motabower); and Patrick Murphy and Julia Dobbs (from Parkmore). [iii]

Edward Balfe’s daughter, Margaret, and her husband Michael Handrick, had left Kennystown a year before the group above, and settled just outside Ottawa, to farm in the Meech Creek area, as did John Beaghan and Ann Byrne (from Tombreane). Margaret and Michael Handrick’s daughter, Mary (m. Denis Kehoe of Tombreane) settled in Bytown itself (as Ottawa was then known).

Most of the Balfes remained near Smiths Falls, raised their families, and prospered. Thomas Balfe and his son farmed some 300 acres, and later took over another farm that was the future site of the Smiths Falls Golf and Country Club. In time, Thomas and his wife, Sarah Kenny, took on with Mary Balfe and Michael Shanks the care of those in need. Nicholas Balfe and Catherine Kealey’s son, Nicholas Jr., founded the grain exchange in Winnipeg and became a millionaire.

Central Ontario

The Kenny family of southwestern Carnew parish, and in particular Myles Kenny (who married Dorothea Briscoe Wilkie in Kennystown on July 10, 1829), was the nucleus for a wave of settlers from the Fitzwilliam estate to an area north of Toronto, Ontario: the town of Barrie, and the surrounding farming communities of Vespra, Essa, and Oro.

Myles Kenny and his family arrived there in the early 1830s, along with Peter Murphy (m. Margaret Ann Doyle) from Kilcavan (Murphy had been a British navy veteran who had petitioned for land in Vespra); Michael Kenny (m. Mary Doyle) from Parkmore; Bridget Kenny (m. Patrick Doran) from Kennystown; and Henry Murphy (m. Catherine Kenny) from Umrygar.

Myles was their leader: he could read and write, where the others could not. The first school in Vespra was held in a log house on his property, where an older relative, Margaret Kenny (b. c1783) lived.

Myles was also active in the early political life of the settlement. He was a member of the first municipal council, and he served as its Reeve (mayor) from 1837-1849. (Myles was a Catholic, and it is interesting to see his political prominence in this corner of Protestant-dominated early Ontario.)

During the famine exodus years of 1847-1853, other Kenny relatives, and the families they were connected to by marriage, came to join Myles Kenny in the Barrie area:

Martin Kenny (m. Catherine Toole) of Tomacork;

Mary Kenny (m. MichaelByrne) of Kilcavan;

Catherine Kenny (m. John Kavanagh) of Parkmore;

Sarah Connors (widow of John Myers) of Carnew (she became Martin Kenny’s second wife);

Margaret Doyle (m. Martin Murphy) of Parkmore;

Ann Doyle (m. Patrick Shannon) of Hillbrooke;

Margaret Doyle (m. William Byrne) of Coolfancy;

John Heffernan (m. Sally Tompkins) of Coolroe;

Sarah Heffernan (m. Patrick Moore) of Ballykelly.

About 1856, John Balfe (m. Alice Dobbs) of Hillbrooke, and Patrick Murphy (m. Julia Dobbs) of Parkmore, [iv] (who had earlier settled near Smiths Falls, Ontario) having heard of the good land near Barrie, came to join their former Wicklow neighbors there.

Myles Kenny’s story has a very sad ending, however. In July 1838, nine of his children died in a single day from mushroom poisoning, and it is said that their coffins were constructed and set out on the Kenny farm’s front lawn. There was no Catholic cemetery in Barrie at the time, and the children were likely buried at the farm’s lot line, as was the custom at the time. Today, they are memorialized in a stone next to that of their parents in St. Mary’s Cemetery, Barrie.

Myles Kenny died on January 11, 1874 in Vespra Township, Simcoe County, Ontario. Despite the terrible tragedy in Myles Kenny’s family, it is most consoling to uncover the web of family relationships in these two Ontario communities— relationships that made the emigres’ arrival in this country a bit less daunting.

For the most part, the lives of the people from southwest Wicklow who moved to Ontario appear to have been successful. Many developed large farms and some became prominent in their communities.

These successes are inspiring to report, as one reads that heartbreaking line attached to the Fitzwilliam emigration record for so many of their tenants: “house to be pulled down.”

People from the Fitzwilliam estate who settled in Ontario, 1847-55

In the late 1840s a program of assisted emigration was initiated by Lord Fitzwilliam to reduce the number of tenants on his estate in southwest County Wicklow Ireland. Most of these emigrants sailed from New Ross to Quebec City, but few of them stayed in Quebec, where the population was for the most part French-speaking. Instead, they continued on up the St. Lawrence River to the province of Ontario (then called Upper Canada) and became part of Irish communities there.

The following data was compiled by Anne Burgess. It lists many of the Irish from the Fitzwilliam estate who settled in the West 1/2 of Ontario, from roughly Belleville to Lake Huron.

People that settled in the East 1/2 of ontario can be found at Find Death Records on Ancestors at Restbytown.net A Story of Emigration: Southwest Wicklow to Ontario, Canada

People from County Wicklow Ireland in the U.S.A.

Between 1841 and 1851, Ireland lost 2 million of it people. An estimated one million of these people left the country while the other million died. Of the one million Irish inhabitants who emigrated during this decade, most went to Canada, England and the United States.

It’s a common misconception that the mass exodus that took place in Ireland during the first half of the l9th century was the result of the potato blight of 1845, but the famine was actually the last in a series of misfortunes that Ireland had to endure. Before the Great Famine, the Irish were already feeling the pressure of rising rents and a slow job market. There was little manufacturing in Ireland and what their was was concentrated in Dublin and Belfast.

The agricultural industry was growing but modern machinery was starting to reduce the amount of manual labor needed. Until the 17th century the Irish had lived under the rule of a small minority of wealthy landowners. When Oliver Cromwell invaded Ireland in the mid-17th century, those landowners who would not give up Catholicism saw their property confiscated and then given to the English. By 1661 about 40% of Ireland was owned by England. Many Irish peasants-stayed on as tenant farmers, working the land and paying rent on the small plots of land where they lived and grew their own food.

But as the growing of crops became less profitable, many landowners began to graze sheep and cattle for the English market, taking back the land from the Irish poor.

This led to a series of evictions where tenant farmers were forced off the land that had sustained them. The lucky tenant farmers who weren’t evicted found there was less land available to them, and these shrinking plots were being shared by more and more occupants.

This diminishing land contributed much to Ireland’s eventual reliance on the potato during the late 18th century. The amount of land needed to grow potatoes could feed more people than the same amount of land used to grow something else. By 1845 when the blight hit approximately 3 million Irish consumed almost nothing but potatoes.

Annette Code has done a lot of work regarding her Codd / Code ancestors who emigrated from Lord Fitzwilliam’s Estate in South West County Wicklow.

Many people came to this area from the area in Ireland where three counties meet — County Carlow, County Wexford and County Wicklow. Background material for this large emigration can be found in:

WEXFORD – HISTORY AND SOCIETY ed. by Kevin Whelan 1987

located on Cantwell Memorial CD. page 427 (Period 1817)  ”By October word of the Ellys’ activities had reached Rathdrum, county of Wicklow, for Isaac Saul Jr. of that place wrote to the Colonial Office seeking information on behalf of many respectable families in and about the town who asked him what he knew about ‘the encouragement’: ‘they tell me that there is a Person taking down such Families Names as wish to Emigrat (sic) in Carnew a small town about 20 miles from this, but that they do not know his Name also I would of written to him to know the truth and not to have troubled Your Lordship’. Bathurst’s reply was more positive than the response to the Rev. Mr. Vaughan had received, for it stated that encouragement was not being offered at the moment mereley because the season was too far advanced. However, the Colonial Secretary informed Saul that any person taking down names was altogether unauthorised by the government.

On p. 426 a note on the ELLYS (of New Ross) (Ellis / Elly ?)

The Ellys were brothers of a Quaker merchant who imported timber and staves from Quebec. Samuel Elly Jr. commonly shipped out passengers in the vessels he chartered to bring timber to Ireland, so it was natural for the residents of Wexford to seek advice and information from his family.

Memorials were a common form of petition to the authorities during the 19th. century. This memorial, containing the names and addresses of 1500 people from south west County Wicklow, sought a change in the location of the Quarter sessions town from Baltinglass in the west to Tinahely in the south of the county in 1837.

The date of the memorial is intermediate between the Tithe Applotment Books and the primary valuation Survey (Griffith’s Valuation) and covers an area which includes the vast Coollattin  Estates of the Earl of Fitzwilliam which witnessed large scale assisted emigration between 1847 and 1856.

The following is an extract showing the names on the Coollattin  Estate but not the surrounding lands owned by Earl Fitzwilliam. He had six estates in Ireland under the company name of Coollattin  Estates. All the surrounding areas were in the estates too but not mentioned here. I will do look ups in this document if anyone wants to contact me at codeannette@shaw.ca I have already typed out the Byrne names – 3 pages from this book, but it would be too onerous a task to do all.

Most of the Codd’s in Lanark Co. were from Aghold / Aghowle and Shillelagh they are definitely related to the Codd’s of Carnew but we have never been able to determine an exact link. I am going to Dublin in September to find what few Parish records available might clear this up, but if I remember rightly the records for Carnew only go back to 1808. William and Hannah were married there in 1811 and I didn’t come across that particular record, there might be witnesses written down that might prove some kind of connection.

The Coollattin Estate Co Wicklow Ireland Children of the Famine.

The story of the Byrne Family

This is the story of Bridget Byrne, her brother Patrick, and their family, who live in Co. Wicklow on the Coollattin Estate during the Great Irish Famine which started in 1845.

Children of the 1800’s

famine School Children 1880's-thestewartsinireland.ie

Bridget was born in 1834 and Patrick in 1835. Their parents are James and Mary Byrne and there are three other children in the family, James, aged 12, Joseph, aged 7 and Mary, aged 5. Bridget’s grandmother, Bridget O’Neill, also lives with them. The Byrnes lived in a small house with two rooms. The roof is made of thatch, there is a large fireplace in one room and not much furniture.


Bridget’s father rents a farm of three acres.

This is enough to grow potatoes to feed the family.

Famine potatoes healthy-thestewartsinireland.ie Famine Potatoes basket (2)-thestewartsinireland.ie

Potatoes – The Staple Diet of the Majority of the Irish. The potato is a great source of food. It has all sorts of valuable vitamins, grows easily, even in poor soil and in most kinds of climate. Large amounts can be grown on a small piece of ground. The Byrne family eats Potatoes at every meal, along with drinking Buttermilk. This was the staple diet for most of the Irish during these years. Bridget washes the spuds and Mam boils them in the big round pot. When they are cooked Mam turns them into a big basket outside the door to let the water drain off. Then she puts the basket of potatoes on the table and everyone peels and eats as much as they want.  Sometimes people leave the nail on their thumb grow long and use it to peel the potatoes. Usually the potatoes are eaten with just salt but sometimes there is some buttermilk to drink. The family seldom eat meat or fish or any vegetables but, because the potato is such a good food everyone is healthy and well-fed. Bridget and Patrick love to go out to see how the potatoes are getting on.

In early summer, 1845, the crop is very healthy and Dad is very happy that they will have plenty to eat over the winter.

In the middle of August the weather changes.

It rains for days and there is a fog which covers everywhere.

One morning the children notice a strange rotten smell and, when they go to look at the potatoes all the plants are black and drooping and look as if they are dead.

Potato Blight 1-thestewartsinireland.ie

Potato Blight Strikes.

The signs of Blight on the potato stalks and the effects of blight on each potato. Bridget runs in to tell her father. He is very worried when he sees the potatoes and tells Patrick to run over to Michael Moore’s house and ask him to come help dig up the crop.  Dad, young James and Michael spend all day digging the potatoes. Bridget and Patrick help by picking them and putting them into baskets. The potatoes are small but they look alright. Back in the 1800′s farmers and gardeners did not have chemical sprays such as we have available today. That evening Bridget washes some of the potatoes and her mother cooks them. Then they notice that something is very wrong. Some of the potatoes still look dirty. When they are peeled some parts are rotten and some parts are good. About three-quarters of the potatoes are good and the Byrnes managed to store enough to use for food and to keep for seed for next year’s crop. James tells the children that he has heard that the blight is worse in other parts of Ireland. In some places more than half of the potatoes are damaged and useless. Dad thinks that if they are careful and not waste potatoes they will have enough to get them through the winter. Bridget and young James often visit Michael Moore’s family and sometimes bring them eggs and a little buttermilk.  When they visit now they notice that the family seem poorer than ever before and often there is hardly any food in the cabin. Michael tells the children that he is very worried about not having enough food for the coming winter. He has no money to buy food and he cannot find any work. At the beginning of the year 1846, many of the Byrne’s poorer neighbours are suffering from a shortage of potatoes. They cannot earn any money to buy other food because there is no work to be got on the farms. Local Relief Committees are set up to help them get some money.

When the Famine struck people went searching for food.

Famine Scenes searching for food-thestewartsinireland.ie Famine Scenes searching for food 2 (2)-thestewartsinireland.ie Potato Blight 1-thestewartsinireland.ie

Potatoes or other root crops where the main stay of food for these people, so they went searching for such food in the ground. It would appear that they did not search for wild animals such as Rabbit, Boar, Deer, or even Pheasant, (so far I have found no references to such activity,  because if they were caught on the estates they probably would have been jailed or hung, justice was swift for the theft of food as is recalled in the famous song “The Fields of Athenry”. When March arrives it is time to sow the new potato seed. The Byrnes had almost as much seed as last year and Dad looks forward to a good healthy crop in autumn. But in July and August disaster strikes! One morning in July 1846, when Bridget and James go to look at the potato crop as usual, their hearts sink. They can smell the same rotten smell that they first noticed last autumn. They run to the field. The plants are dying and the terrible smell hangs in the air. When the children rush to tell Dad, he knows that his family is in real trouble.

Cabbage-thestewartsinireland.ieCabbage Field-thestewartsinireland.ie

Cabbage Field



They have a few other vegetables, like cabbage and turnips, growing on their farm but not nearly enough to feed all of them during the winter. It is too early to dig up the potatoes as they did last year. All they can do is wait and hope that some of the crop will survive. All the other small farmers on the Coollattin Estate have the same problem. There will not be enough potatoes to last until Christmas. There is hardly any work. Many of the men are too weak from hunger to work even if they can find any. Those who have work don’t earn enough to buy other food because prices have risen sharply. In September the government decides to start the Relief Work Schemes again. New rules are brought in and every Relief Committee has to fill out a long form to apply for money to start a scheme. All of the paperwork takes time and meanwhile people are starving. Michael Moore, his wife and children, have barely survived through last winter and spring. Bridget and Patrick have helped them get over the worst of by bringing small amounts of food. Now things are worse than ever. When the Relief Work starts in the autumn of 1846 Michael is too weak to work. Early in November the whole family is forced to go to the workhouse in Shillelagh. James Byrne goes to work on the Relief Scheme. Along with hundreds of other men he works from dawn to dusk building a road near his home.  He earns one shilling (6 cent) a day. This helps him to buy some extra food for the family. He knows that it will not be enough to keep them from starvation when his small supply of good potatoes runs out before next spring. In early 1847 news comes that gives James and his family hope that there may be a way out!  Lord Fitzwilliam is offering free passage to Canada to tenants who will leave his estate at Coollattin. The agent, Robert Challoner, is making a list of volunteers. The fare will be paid by the Coollattin Estate. All James Byrne’s neighbours are talking about the offer. Most have no idea where Canada is but some people have relations who went there in the 1820′s and 1830′s and sometimes write home. Some of the tenants are tempted and decide to go. Others think they should stay in Ireland and hope that things get better. James thinks about the offer very carefully. He knows that the landlord wants to get rid of many of the tenants on the estate. He talks to Mary and the older children. Bridget and Patrick are excited about the idea of going to a new country and think the whole thing is a great adventure. Mary is not so sure. She doesn’t want to leave her home and friends and she is worried that her mother, Bridget, is too weak to make the journey. James is afraid that if they do not accept, and if things do not get better, they will not be able to pay the rent. They could be evicted and end up in the workhouse.

At last the family decides to take up the landlord’s offer. Bridget’s granny wants to stay but the family will not go without her, so she eventually agrees to come with them. As part of the deal, the Byrne’s house is knocked down so no-one can live there again. James agrees to knock it himself and is paid 5 shillings (about 30 cent). The landlord pays for the family to travel to Canada. Some people also get money to buy clothes and extra food for the trip. The landlord also provides a large wooden chest to carry the family’s possessions. It is early April, 1847. The Byrnes are ready to leave on the first part of the journey – to New Ross, Co. Wexford.

The sailing ship Dunbrody is due to leave New Ross port for Quebec, Canada, in a few day. Friends and relatives have come to say goodbye and wish the family well on the long trip. They know they will probably never meet again.

Famine Road to port Emigration-thestewartsinireland.ie

Loading the cart

Helping hands load the family’s possessions on to a cart. The cart and horse has been loaned by a kind neighbour, who will travel with them to New Ross and bring the cart home. Bridget and Patrick say a tearful goodbye to their pet dog, Óigí. In the distance the Byrnes can see other family groups who have already set off. It is time to leave. Slowly the little group moves down the road.  The cart is loaded down with goods and the Byrnes walk beside it. When the younger children get tired they are put on the cart for some of the journey. When it gets dark they stop at the side of the road and get what rest they can. Next morning, they have a meal and start walking again. The journey to New Ross, about 80 kilometres, takes 4 days. Bridget and Patrick have never seen a town as big as New Ross or a river as wide as the Barrow before. It is a busy place with lots of shops and people going about their work. When they reach the Quays the children stare open-mouthed at the magnificent wooden bridge which crosses the Barrow to the Kilkenny shore. What really excites them is the sight of five large sailing ships moored at the quay side, with masts reaching up towards the sky.

Famine Shipping at quayside-thestewartsinireland.ieFamine Sailing on the quayside-thestewartsinireland.ieFamine Scenes waiting to depart-thestewartsinireland.ie

 Busy Quay side

The quays are a hive of activity. Dozens of men are loading and unloading cargo, carrying large sacks on their backs.

When all the passengers and their belongings are on board, the crew get ready to sail. All barrels and trunks of food, water and clothing are tied down with ropes in case they come loose in a storm. All the passengers gather on deck and a roll is called.  After this no-one is allowed to go ashore.

When everything is ready the gangways are pulled ashore and the Dunbrody is slowly pulled away from the quay by a steam tugboat. Bridget and Patrick stand beside the ship’s rail and wave to the people gathered on the quay until a bend in the River Barrow hides the town of New Ross from view for the last time. The children’s parents are below deck, tidying away all the gear for the long journey.

Famine Scenes on board ship-thestewartsinireland.ieFamine Sailing Dunbrody insideship-1-thestewartsinireland.ie

 Below deck

There is not much space. The Dunbrody is a fine ship. She is only two years old and was built in Quebec for the Graves family of New Ross. She is used to carry timber from Canada, cotton from America and guano (fertiliser) from Peru. She is fitted with bunks to carry passengers to the “New World” on the return journeys. There are two kinds of passenger – first class, who have a private cabin and “steerage” – who must all live and sleep in the cramped space in the hold below the deck. First class passengers pay between £5 (€6.35) and £8 (€10.15) for the trip and are served their food at the captain’s table. “Steerage” passengers pay £3-15-0 (€4.75) and cook their own food, most of which they have brought with them.

Famine Sailing Dunbrody quarterdeck-thestewartsinireland.ie

 Up on deck

The weather is calm and the passengers enjoy walking on deck. There is not much room below decks. The steerage passengers sleep on bunks. There is no privacy and all their belongings are stored under the bunks. Meals are cooked on deck when the weather is fine. Bridget and Patrick make new friends with children from Wexford, Kilkenny and Carlow. Some people have brought along fiddles and accordions and sometimes there is dancing in the cabin. The children play games like “Hide and Seek” and like listening to stories told by the adults. But as the days go by the journey gets boring and everybody wants to see dry land again.

Famine Sailing Atlantic Storms-thestewartsinireland.ie

 A bad storm in the Atlantic

Suddenly, after two weeks sailing the weather changes. A huge storm blows for four days.  The children have never seen anything like it and are very afraid. The passengers are not allowed on deck during the storm and the hatches (covers) and portholes (windows) are closed and locked. The Dunbrody tosses and turns and everybody is sea-sick. The only toilets are on deck and there are not enough buckets for the 317 people on board. Imagine being a storm where the ship heels over like in this picture, the conditions must have been awful and very frightening, with the ship being battered by mountainous waves and seas crashing over the decks soaking every one below. You can imagine what it is like for the children. They are afraid that the ship will sink and they are so sick they don’t really care! Dad tells them not to worry – the Dunbrody is a strong ship and the captain and crew are excellent sailors.

But he has heard stories of rotten ships full of passengers who left Ireland and never reached America. These were known as coffin ships. When the storm ends people are allowed on deck again and the mess in the cabin is cleaned up. Many of the passengers, especially the very old and very young, are so weak that they cannot move from the bunks. Mam and Dad are very worried about young Mary and Granny. They are afraid they will die before the end of the journey. After 40 days at sea, one morning the lookout on the mast shouts that there is land ahead. Everyone rushes to the rail and slowly the passengers can see the distant shore getting closer and closer. A great cheer goes up. At last they have arrived in the New World. But the voyage isn’t over yet and for some the worst is still to come.

Famine canada carteroute-1-thestewartsinireland.ie

 Canada at last

The land they can see is at the entrance to the St. Lawrence River. Quebec is still more than 500 kilometres away. But at least the waters are calmer, they can see land on both sides of the Dunbrody and they can spend more time on deck.

When the Dunbrody finally arrives near Quebec the passengers are not allowed to leave the ship straight away. The ship has to stop beside Grosse Ile, an island in the St. Lawrence River, about 60 kilometres from Quebec.

 Grosse Ile

The first view of Grosse Ile, ‘what awaits us in this strange new world, will it be better than Famine ridden Ireland’ what would you and I be thinking if we were on that ship during the 1800′s fleeing from ones homeland??’

Grosse Ile is used as a quarantine station.

Famine canada hospital aa-thestewartsinireland.ie

 Inside view of the Quatantine station

Many of the people who come on ships to Canada from Ireland are very sick, suffering from a fever called typhus which is very contagious. These people must stay in quarantine on Grosse Ile so that they will not spread disease in Quebec,  Montreal and other Canadian towns. Little Mary Byrne and Granny are still very weak but the rest of the family are fairly healthy. The Canadian authorities will not allow anyone to leave the ship until a doctor comes to examine everyone. There are other ships waiting and it will be a couple of days before the passengers are checked. Sick passengers are kept on Grosse Ile for several days.  Nothing can be done to cure the fever. Those who survive are allowed to continue on their journey.

Famine canada cemetary grosseile-thestewartsinireland.ie

 Grasveyard at Grosse Ile

Many die and are buried on the island.

The passengers who travelled on the Dunbrody are among the lucky ones. Only five people have died at sea. When the doctor comes on board he decides there is no fever on the ship and the passengers will only be delayed for three days. When the quarantine is over the Dunbrody passengers are allowed to travel on to Quebec.

And now onwards to Quebec.

The journey is made on a steam-boat and takes two days.  Many of the passengers have to sleep on deck at night. Some die on the journey. When they arrive in Quebec, the Irish immigrants are not given a great welcome. The citizens are afraid that the new arrivals will bring disease. The Byrne family move on into the countryside. Young Mary soon gets well again but the children’s granny, Bridget O’Neill, never recovers and dies during the harsh Canadian winter. The children’s Dad, James, finds work in the woods near Quebec. Here trees are knocked down, cut into logs and sent to Britain on ships like the Dunbrody. Most of the timber is used as props in British coal-mines. Young James, who is now 14, goes to work with his Dad. The family live in a log cabin built for the timber workers. When Bridget is 16 she goes to work as a servant to a wealthy family in the local town. When she is 17 she marries another Irish immigrant, John O’Brien, from Tipperary and they have five children. After a few years the family save enough money to buy a small farm. The family never returned to Ireland.

Tenant Farmer paying his rent

A pleminary meeting to make arrangements for the county meeting on the Land Question was held in Crowley’s Hotel Rathdrum Co. Wicklow on the 20th December 1869.             On the motion of Wm. Gilbert Esq., seconded by the Rev. Denis Doyle, the chair was take by Archdeacon Redmond P.P. of Arklow,who was received with enthusiastic applause.  There was a good attendance.

Amongst those present were – Rev. Denis Doyle, Tinahely; Wm. Gilbert Esq., Deputy-Vice-Chairman Rathdrum Board of Guardians; Thomas Murray Esq., Cooladanagan; James R. Taylor Esq., M.D. Kilmullen; Messers Richard Johnson PLG Avoca/Ovoca; William Comerford PLG Rathdrum; Andrerw Kehoe Bray; Owen Fogarty PLG Aughrim; John O’Brien Wicklow; John O’Neill Arklow; Thos. Hannigan Arklow; Andrew Byrne PLG Arklow; Lewis Byrne PLG Arklow; S. Bourke PLG Ballyshane; Edward Byrne PLG Ballyurrin; Michael Byrne Monestown; Patrick Keely PLG Parkmore; Thomas Saul Rathdrum; John Cowley Rathdrum; John O’Neill Kilaveney.  Archdeacon Redmond in addressing the meeting said that he felt highly honoured to be called upon to preside on that occasion, but at the same time he thought the chair would be much better be filled by a layman. (No, no) However, he would be obedient to their call and he felt very happy in taking the chair. He never had his heart so much in any subject as in that of the Land Question, with the exception of the higher things he had to look after, namely the interests of the soul. With the blessing of God he hoped they would go on with the movement in connection with the Land Question and he had every certainty they would succeed. There were two subjects which he wished to call  their attention and these were rack-rents and capricious evictions. How these things could be abolished was what had called them together that day. Let them look over every county and what did they find ? Land which in Germany or Belgium would be turned into beautiful grazing land was allowed here to be bristling with bulrushes like bayonets and when you asked the tenant on that land why he does not drain it and cultivate it, he would reply “If I were to do so the landlord would double my rent.” Why should not the landlord give security to his tenants and thus not only make the latter secure and contented in their holdings but also contribute to his own happiness by having a prosperous and contented tenantry ? But power was the most intoxicating thing a man could possess and landlords too often weilded their power against the poor tenant. It was a terrible thing for any man to have it in his power to keep his fellow man under him in a state in some respects worse that slavery. It was terrible thing that a landlord should have the power to arbitrarly turning the tenant out of his home. It was a terrible thing that he should have the power of driving his tenant like a beast to the hustings and there to perpetrate the greates toutrage on our Constitution – to compel him to vote against his conscience. What liberty of choice had the poor unfortunate elector without a lease in Ireland ? (None.)  No more that the black negro antecedent to his emancipation. What more terrible intimidation could there be to the tenant than the fear of being deprived of his home? What more terrible bribe than the expentancy that the land occupied by an honest elector would be taken away from him and given to another dishonest one ? That was really a fearful state of things and there was not a single nobleman or gentleman who would not rise up at once and endeavour to put an end to it. He found the evils of the question to be comprised in two things, namely, landlord rapacity and capricious evictions. This country could never be free and happy till these things were abolished. (Hear, hear.) What was the remedy ? In the first place there should be fair rents throughout the country. Without that it was all moonshine to try and settle the Land Question. He (the Archdeacon) knew of one landlord who had raised his rent on one of his tenants from 17 shillings an acre Griffith’s Valuation to 42 shillings and the tithe charges in the bargin. At present there was no law to check the bad landlord, but the law was in favour of him. This was what they had to consider. The power of extortion should be put down if they wished to see the country free and prosperous. (Here, here.)

An eviction

Famine Family Eviction 2-thestewartsinireland.ie

The power of turning out capricously must be restrained. What were the direct remidies to meet those evils ? There should be an independent organ of adjudication between landlord and tenant. No man should be allowed to make slaves of Queen Victoria’s subject. No man should be allowed to involve in the continued agonies of a living death and in all of the horrors of a practical slavery, men who should be free. The tenant farmert lives in his house. At any moment may come the notice to quit. Where would he and his family fly to ? They will be driven to the poorhouse or forced to embark in the emigrant shipand to face the dangers of a transatlantic voyage. A good landlord is a great blessing. A greater curse there could not be than a bad landlord. Take the case of a tenant under a rack rent. He is working in spite of everything. He manages to pay the rent for some time but he finds his clothes getting threadbare  and he find the same with his wife and children. At length he is unable to meet the demands of his landlord and then comes the notice to quit like a sentence of death and he his wife and children are driven out homeless on the wide world. The remedy for these extorionate rents was an independent tribunal to do justice between landlord and tenant. Capricious evictions could only be met by a direct law to secure the tenant in his holding as if he had the fee-simple. As long as the tenant paid his rent he should be secure in his holding as the Queen is on her throne. (Hear, hear.) The Ven. Archdeacon concluded an able and eloquent speech amid loud applause. Letters of apology for non-attendance were read from several gentlemen. The requisitions from each parish to the High-Sherriff asking him to convene the county meeting were then produced and were most numerously signed. It was decided that the requisition to the High-Sherriff with the signatures from each parish should be published in the Wicklow Newsletter, “Irish Times”, and “Freeman’s Journal.” It was moved by Thomas Murray, Esq., seconded by James R. Taylor, Esq., M.D. and passed- “That the county meeting be held in the town of Wicklow, on Wednesday the 19th inst.,” as was decided at the previous preliminary meeting. The following resolution was proposed by Rev. Denis Doyle:- “That the chairman be instructed to write to the High-Sherriff of the County of Wicklow to ask him to accede to the request of several thousand ratepayers to call a meeting of the county on Wednesday the 29th of December at the hours of 12 o’clock noon in the town of Wicklow, to consider the proprietry of petitioning parliament for an amendment of the existing relations between landlord and tenant.” Thomas Murray Esq., seconded the resolution which was carried unanimously. It wa also passed unanimously – “That the chairman be requested to write to the Chairman of the Town Commissioners of Wicklow, requesting the use of the Murrough on the 29th instant, for the county meeting to consider the Land Question and that Mr O’Brien take the necessary steps for the carrying out of the resolution.” A cordial vote of thanks to the Chairman terminated the proceedings. The next preliminary metting will be held in Cowley’s Hotel Rathdrum at twelve o’clock on Monday the 27th instant to make proximate arrangements for the county meeting on the 29th instant. On the same newspaper page was the following letter  (no name listed as to who the writer was or date).

Paying the Landlord’s rent

famine Tenant farmers paying the rent to Landlord-thestewartsinireland.ie

To the Editor of the Wicklow News-letter Sir;- Now that the rent receipt of the Fitzwilliam Estate is over I think it is only fair play for you to contradict those idle rumours that were so industriousely circulated. That the tenants would be required to sign a paper setting forth that no Land Bill was required for the country and they were perfectly contented with their lot. Every one of his Lordship’s tenants know that such ill timed and unwarrantable reports had no foundation unless in the muddle brains of would be policitians.

Signed:-One proud to be a Fitzwilliam tenant.
