Blanchfield - Brennan Montreal Connections
« Reply #22 on: June 12, 2006, 01:09:41 PM »

St. Patrick's, Montreal, Nov. 6, 1860 - M137

[highlight]Patrick Clarke[/highlight], laborer, son of James Clarke dec. and of Catherine (looks like) Tiernan. TO: [highlight]Ann Blanchfield[/highlight], daughter of Richard Blanchfield and of dec. Bridget McCarthy

Wit: Owen Partland.

Groom's parents, Co. Leitrim and bride's parents Co. Kilkenny.

 
Sheila
 

In our notes; Ann Blanchfield was born in St. Columban on March 13th 1840 – B17. Her parents, Richard Blanchfield & Bridget McCarthy were married in St. Columban on February 11 1839 – M4.

Her mother, Bridget was born about 1821, and died young on October 16 1842 at only 21 years old.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------  

July 15, 1845, Notre Dame, Montreal

 

[highlight]Richard Blanchfield[/highlight], wid of Bridget McCarthy. TO: [highlight]Catherine Brennan[/highlight], daughter of Wm. Brennan and Mary Butler

 
In our notes, Richard Blanchfield is the widow of Bridget McCarthy and definitely from St. Columban.


However, it would appear that the Brennan family was also from St. Columban at the time. They had at least one other daughter named, Mary Brennan who also married into the Blanchfield family. Our records on Mary Brennan are that she married a James Blanchfield in St. Columban on September 21 1836.

Brophy; Phelan Montreal Connection
« Reply #23 on: June 20, 2006, 05:34:12 PM »

Some info. from Shelia about Brophy / Phelan


The following is a complete transcript of the Brophy Phelan marriage at St. Gabriel's.  I read the groom's mother as "Bennett".  At the repertoires informatise de groupe BMS2000 they list her as Emmett.
 
Anyway, here is the complete text as I read it:
 
M19 St. Gabriel's Point St. Charles
Thomas Brophy & Mary Phelan

 
The tenth of October 1882, whereas the dispensation of two banns of marriage as also a dispensation of the third bann to the fourth degree of consanguinity have been granted by the Very Reverend D. J. Marechal, Vicar General of this Diocese, whereas also the other banns have been published at the prime of our parochial masses between [highlight]Thomas Brophy[/highlight], son of age of [highlight]deceased Lawrence Brophy and Margaret Bennet [/highlight](probably should read Margaret Elliott) of St. Columban of the one part; and [highlight]Mary Phelan [/highlight]at present also of St. Columban, daughter of age of [highlight]deceased Patrick Phelan and Sarah O'Brien [/highlight]of St. Columban of the other part; no opposition having been offered, we the undersigned priest have received their mutual consent to marriage and have given them the nuptual blessing in presence of Timothy Quinlan and Mary Quinlan who have signed with the bride, the bridegroom has declared that he cannot sign.
 
Thanks for the info....Here are the additional detail that I have. In my records, Thomas' mother is Margaret Elliott (which I think is the right name rather than Bennett or Emmett).... Both Thomas & Mary each had a number of brothers & sisters....
 

[highlight]Thomas Brophy [/highlight]born in St. Columban on May 25th 1855 – Son of [highlight]Lawrence Brophy [/highlight]who had likely been born in Ireland about 1819 and died in St. Columban on November 24 1881 at the age of 62 years old and his mother, [highlight]Margaret ELLIOTT[/highlight], who was born about 1832 and died in St. Columban on July 30 1896 at 64 years old.
and …..
[highlight]Mary Phelan [/highlight]born in St. Columban on May 15th 1857 – Daughter of [highlight]Patrick Phelan [/highlight]born about 1829, and died in St. Columban on December 12 1874 at 45 years old. and his wife [highlight]Sarah O’Brien[/highlight] (no other information on Sarah at this point).

Keyes; Ryan - Huntington Connection
« Reply #25 on: June 20, 2006, 05:43:19 PM »

St. Joseph, Huntingdon, Quebec, Oct. 27, 1956
John Ryan, son of Jeremiah Ryan and Catherine Leavy
TO: Lorette Keyes, dughter of Andrew Keyes and Elizabeth Casey

And here is the info in my records...

I have no details about John Ryan ( Don't think that he was part of the St. Columban Ryans) but Loretta Keyes was my aunt (my father's sister).
 
She was born in Montreal on June 4th 1910. She and John Ryan had no children. Her father (my grandfather) was Andrew Keyes (II) and her mother was Elizabeth Casey. Her father had been born in St. Columban on Christmas Day - December 25 1878 and died in Montreal on November 15 1944. Her mother (my grandmother) Elizabeth was born in St. Columban on June 30th 1878 and died in Montreal on July 17 1948. Elizabeth Casey actually died at my parent's home in Park Ex about 5 months before I was born.
 
Her grandparents (my great grandparents) were Andrew Keyes (I) and Bridget Ryan on her father's side,  and John Casey and Mary Ann Grimes on her mother's side...

Hall; McKenna & maybe Blanchfield

Here are a couple of more connections from Shelia.....

[b](By the way, just for information, the "Shelia" that Jeff removed from our list recently is not our "Shelia". The Shelia that we removed was a spammer from Russia!)[/b]

Here is the information from our Shelia:-

St. Patrick's, Montreal
April 5, 1864 - M30
[highlight]John Hall[/highlight], farmer, domiciled in St. Columba, son of [highlight]James [/highlight][highlight]Hall and Alice O'Donnell [/highlight]of the same parish.  TO: [highlight]Anne McKenna [/highlight]of this parish  of this parish, daughter of dec. [highlight]Patrick McKenna, farmer and of dec. Mary (looks like) McArdle of this parish[/highlight]Wit: Mary McKenna, and a church official

The following is a note only FYI - not sure if this is the same Catherine Blanchfield from the St. Columban Blanchfields....

St. Patrick's, Montreal, April 3, 1864, B265
Mary Ann Vidler, born on the 1st. inst. daughter of Joseph Vidler, labourer and of [highlight]Catherine Blanchfield[/highlight].

Is it Ann or is it Margaret Blanchfield ??
« Reply #29 on: July 31, 2006, 02:23:44 PM »

Sometimes even a first name can drive you crazy as with this case where Shelia and I have been going back and forth to determine if the first name is [highlight]Ann or Margaret[/highlight]....

In the wedding she is referred to as Ann......

St. Patrick's, Montreal, Nov. 6, 1860 - M137
Patrick Clarke, laborer, son of James Clarke dec. and of Catherine (looks like) Tiernan. TO: [highlight]Ann Blanchfield[/highlight], daughter of Richard Blanchfield and of dec. Bridget McCarthy
Wit: Owen Partland.
Groom's parents, Co. Leitrim and bride's parents Co. Kilkenny.
 
Then when a her child Margaret is born, she is referred to as Margaret as follows...

St. Patrick's, Montreal, Nov. 3, 1864 - B898
Margaret Clarke, born Nov. 2, 1864, daughter of Patrick Clarke, gardener and of [highlight]Margaret Blanchfield.[/highlight]
GP: James (looks like, can't sign) Ellot and Margaret Welsh.

And these are some notes from our St. Columban records:-

She was born on March 13 1840 and baptized as Ann in St. Columban (B17). She was the daughter of Richard Blanchfield. Her mother, Bridget McCarthy died in St. Columban on October 16 1842 at only 21 years old (S16). Her parents had been married in St. Columban on February 11 1839 (M4). She seems to have been the only daughter from this marriage although there was also a son James Blanchfield born on January 3 1842 (B1). Her father Richard, re-married as per a previous note...Maybe in this case, she simply took the name Margaret or the priest at the baptism wrongly put her first name as Margaret assuming it was the same name as the new daughter, or he just wrote it as Margaret in error - who ever knows with this stuff?

Just for the additional notes about the baptism of Margaret Clarke, I would guess that the godparents were also from St. Columban. Can't really prove it, of course, but I would guess that James Ellot in your records was probably James Elliott. He was the son of Edward Elliott & Mary Blanchfield. James was born in St. Columban on October 9 1841 and would have been about the same age and the 1st cousin of Ann (or Margaret) Blanchfield. There were also a lot of Welsh (Walsh) families in St. Columban but I can't really connect directly to the godmother Margaret Welsh. Actually now that I see it with the baby named Margaret and the god-mother named Margaret, maybe the priest decided it was easier to just name the mother Margaret too so all the female first names could all be the same !!!

So, even when they changed around their first names it can lead to some confusion !!!
