  • John DWYER and Ann CULLIN / CULLEN, Ireland to Dwyer Hill, Goulbourn Township, Ontario, Canada
    I will gladly send you anything that I have BTW I have found some inconsistencies with the dates etc in the history that Lou had put together and am trying to reconcile them through census records etc My long range plan is to update the history Lou did I plan to hit the cemeteries this spring summer to double check dates etc Jay The McCabe list is a document regarding early Irish immigration to Canada Part of my family Gorman appear on this list To follow is the transcription 26 GORMAN Patrick Tipperary Makarky Liskeeveen Patrick Gorman has a father and Uncle both having large families the name of the former is Patrick and the latter Anthony Dwyer they reside at Liskeevan near Thurles in the Co of Tipperary they are known to James Lanigan Lannigan Landrigan of Castle Fogarty The reason I think this information is important in your Dwyer research is because the McCabe lists very early emigrants prior to 5 February 1829 in Canada and their relatives in Ireland who may be interested in coming to Canada The Gorman s settled in what later became Dwyer Hill A name that has appeared in our family for many generations is Anthony Gorman Also in the Belden atlas of 1879 it states Besides Richmond above described there are a number of small Villages in Goulbourn none however of any size or importance One of these is Dwyer s Hill where is a Post Office near the south western boundary of the Township on the Perth and Richmond Road The two chief reasons of the locality being so named are explained by the name itself Mr Dwyer having located on the Hill among the earliest settlers in the vicinity There is a tri weekly mail The Post Office and also a small store the only evidences of a village are kept by a Mr Rathwell I believe that your Dwyer s came to the area due to their connection to the Gormans who had already settled here I would check further into the County of Tipperary the Parish of Makarky and the Townland of Liskeeveen for your Dwyer roots Mary Quinn April 25 2006 I am submitting the following for the bytown web page on John Dwyer and Ann Cullen Leone Rodriguez E Mail Leonerodriguez aol com great great granddaughter of John Dwyer via William Dwyer Edmond Dwyer and Erma Dwyer Montague On the family of John Dwyer born in County Carlow Ireland circa 1791 and died in Ottawa on April 20 1875 and Ann Cullen born in Ireland circa 1800 and died in Ottawa on August 18 1855 at age 56 and the naming of Dwyer Hill John Dwyer came to Canada as a member of the 100th Regiment of Foot in the British Army On Page 22 of a Regiment Roster a copy of which was sent to me by Donna Keays Hockey Curator Goulbourn Museum John Dwyer is listed as 5 feet 6 inches tall and 24 years old when he enlisted in Dublin for unlimited service as attested on April 15 1816 He was a laborer with a fair complexion hazel eyes and brown hair He was born in Dunleckny Parish which is in Bagenalstown in County Carlow Leinster Province Ireland Muinebheag is the official name of the town although Muine Bheag or Bagenalstown are commonly used Baptismal records from Dunleckny Parish show that there were Dwyers living there in 1820 and after though the relationship between those individuals and our ancestor John has not been established Researcher Holly Andreozzi Crownover who traveled to the Dwyer Hill area to gather information located the following entry regarding the grant of land to John Dwyer John Dwyer Yeoman received 100 acres in the Township of Goulbourn Carleton County Ontario Cnd from War of 1812 in a Crown Grant transcript part of land petition of John Dwyer as a private on discharge from 99th Regiment of Foot 1818 Upper Canada Land Petition RG 1 L 3 submitted by John Dwyer 1834 volume 161 part 1 D 18 116 Microfilm reel C 1877 Canada The Story of the 100th Regiment of Foot For King and Canada by A Barry Roberts published in 2004 by the Goulbourn Township Historical Society and Museum lists John Dwyer among the Index of Names of those Members of the One Hundredth Regiment of Foot later renumbered as the Ninety Ninth who Settled in Goulbourn Township after the War of 1812 Appendix 13 page 239 He was 26 years old when he was granted the 100 acres at Concession 3 Lot 6W That property is now located at what is now the intersection of Dwyer Hill Road Ottawa Road 3 and Franktown Road County Road 3 In the same Index of names is John Cullen a private who was born in Derry County and who enlisted in the 100th Regiment of Foot in 1813 at the age of 20 John Cullen was granted 100 acres at Concession 6 Lot 13W It is highly probable that the Ann Cullen who married John Dwyer was the sister of this John Cullen and therefore from Derry County It is not known how Ann Cullen reached Canada and traveled to the Goulbourn area but it is unlikely that she would have traveled so far if she were not going to meet a relative already living there This was called chain migration and was a common form of immigration with folks leaving their homeland to join those who had already left and established themselves in a new land However it came to be Ann Cullen Cullin immigrated to Canada before the potato famine drove more than a million folks from Ireland from 1845 to 1849 50 but nonetheless at a time when opportunities were not good in Ireland due to the effects of the Napoleonic Wars John Dwyer was listed in the 1820 the 1821 as of February 17 1821 and the 1822 as of April 20 1822 agricultural census reports
