Not sure if you are looking for Cdn. information or info in Ireland.  Have you tried looking at inGenea in Cda?  Another place is ships.list - tedious, but due to earliness might find something.  Have no idea where to look up anything in Ireland.  What about an Historical Society in Drummondville?  You probably know more about sources than me. Hv a great day.

Are your Palmers from Bristol.  Not my family, but have some local info on Arthur Palmer, 1831-1924 m. Florence Felicia.  Also a couple of pictures in the local historical book.

 Hi Liana:  Hope you have found something about the 1820 emigrants to Canada.  The major emigration occured in 1840's and 1850's from Scotland and Ireland.  1820's is still time of fur traders with French and some UK emigrants.  Gov't decided to try and get more emigrees mid century when fur trade was tapering off. 
Wanted to settle Manitoba to keep it from U.S. control - what better way than with British subjects, many Scots.  Not sure about the Irish who couldn't have been too happy with being starved off their meager crofts.  Mid century was the time of great famine in Ireland - also time of "famine ships".  Very sad reading - many Irish went to
Australia, U.S. as well as Canada.  Good hunting.  Lauraine

Dear Edna,

I've sent a message to your mailbox in response to your daughter's/son's post.

My grandmother Dorothy was your father's cousin, the only one of five sisters to marry. I think this means you're my great aunt!

Dorothy had four children, all who will be thrilled to discover their cousin. Once I've got your email address I'll tell you all I know.

Which brother was your father's dad? I'm not sure about that at the moment.

So nice to hear from you.

Re Reynolds to Canada

My Grandfather was Oswald Reynolds that you are talking about, my mother is Edna.
I have an old photo album of their trip to England in the 30's.
If I ever go to Norwich are their still cousins there?
