Andrew Holmes Birth ABOUT 1790 • County Cavan, Ireland
« on: Sunday 16 October 16 13:20 BST (UK) »
I am searching for info on my 2nd great grandfather and his spouse

Family info and other records indicate he was born about 1790 in County Cavan, Ireland.  I have no info on parents.

He died either onboard ship or near arrival in Canada  JUNE 18, 1845 and is buried at Grosse-Ile, Les Îles-de-la-Madeleine, Quebec, Canada.  There is a memorial there with his name and the many others who died during crossing or on arrival.

He was married to a Susan or Susannah who was born about 1791 in County Cavan, Ireland .  She passed in Moore Township, Ontario, Canada 22 SEPT 1865

The had the following children all listed as born in County Cavan.

Mary Ann Holmes 1811–1881
   
Margaret Holmes 1816–
   
Thomas Holmes 1819–1895
   
John Holmes 1821–
   
David Holmes 1825–1902
   
William Holmes 1825–1894
   

Andrew Holmes 1830–1896

I have a fair bit of detail after the arrival of the family (the came in several groups) but have hit a wall around the family in Ireland

Any assistance greatly appreciated

Hi David,
As the family went to Canada before 1845, I looked in the Tithe Records and this is the list.
http://titheapplotmentbooks.nationalarchives.ie/search/tab/results.jsp?surname=holmes&firstname=&county=Cavan&parish=&townland=&search=Search

As you can see the rent/tax payers names David, Cecil and George.
The only Andrew Holmes in the Tithe records was in County Mayo.
If Catholic you could try,
http://registers.nli.ie

What I did find was that Andrew b 1790 his father was Andrew (b 1730) and Mother was Jean Graham (b 1734) and His Father was Nathaniel (b 1690) in Coleraine, County Antrim and Mother was Janet Hunter (b 1692) Two of Nathaniel's children went to the USA.

Not sure if there's much basis in fact as numerous internet posts list Nathaniel Holmes from Coleraine Co. Antrim, etc. Here's one example-

Of course, Coleraine is NOT in County Antrim  ::)

Another one just as bad-
