Thank you Hallmark. Have reviewed many times over the years. Nothing there unfortunately.

Okay, thanks for replying in any case.

Hi Whiteout7,

Richard came sometime before 1937. I found a passenger list for 1926 but not sure it is the Richard. There is another with him on that ship which could be a possible brother, but the name doesn't match what my friend said was the brother (suppose to be a Frank, the person is John Lewis).

Why are you not allowed to search the 1911 census? I found the 1911 census on public domain. Though again not sure it is the right family I found. It says Richard b. abt. 1904 Llangwyllog.

I found a birth for a Francis Idris but nothing further on this person.

Thank you for your help.


Thank you very much Glensman!

Thank you Gaffy for the link and info. Very much appreciated.

Wales / FENNELL, William b. abt. 1770 WALES went to IRELAND

I am looking for any information on FENNELL's in WALES in the 1700's.  I have no information on where the above person may have been in Wales, but apparently he left for Wexford, Ireland.  Was it common for the Welsh to migrate to Ireland?

Grateful for any information.


Anglesey / WILLIAMS, Richard Llewelyn b. abt. 1905 ANGLESEY

I am researching the above noted for a friend. WILLIAMS, Richard Llewelyn and brother Frank came to Canada but lost each other when they disembarked in Montreal.  Never to see each other again.  They had two other siblings Jane and Owen.  Apparently Jane went to New Zealand.

I am hoping someone may have info on this family.  I can't seem to find much at all. I'd like to find out whom the parents were. My friend tells me that Richard came from Anglesey.

Would be grateful for any little tid bit!

Donegal / HERON, William - Possibly Ballymacool, Letterkenny

Hello Fellow Family Researchers,

I have been looking for the birthplace of my gr-gr grandfather William HERON, b. June 22, 1823 in Ireland. I am looking in Donegal given that a relative who did some research in the 80's (and whom is now deceased) noted that William's brother was Thomas HERON from Ballymacool (a carpenter) who married Margaret HUNTER April 26, 1849, in Conwal, Letterkenny, Donegal (marriage found on and  My William came to Canada sometime prior to 1850.  According to the research in the 80's it was noted William came in the mid 1840's and that his father was Edward HERON. How much of a stretch is it that the family all resided in the Ballymacool/Letterkenny area since Thomas resided there at the time of his marriage?

My William was enumerated in all Canadian census records as being born in Ireland.

If anyone has any resources that could help me find out if my William indeed came from Ballymacool I would be most grateful.

Thank you,

Researching: CARSON (Down), FENNELL (Wexford), HERON (Donegal), MCCULLOUGH (Monaghan)
