De Claude Bourguignon: notes concernant Richard Blanchfield


Richard Blanchfield acquiert de John Kenny le lot 226 (1109 au terrier seigneurial) le 3 juillet 1829 . Il est dit d'Irlande et habite à ce moment la paroisse de Sainte-Scholastique. La terre a une dimension de 3 arpents par 25 et contient une maison. Le recensement de 1831 indique qu'il est cultivateur  et que 7 personnes habitent la ferme. Le recensement de 1842 mentionne  la présence de 8 personnes dont 6 sont nées en Irlande.  Le 13 août 1845 il donne la terre à son fils Richard. Celle-ci compte une maison, une grange et autres bâtiments. Richard junior vend le 26 octobre 1847 la propriété à Francois Xavier Clément. Le notaire indique que Richard est un ancien cultivateur de Saint-Colomban. Il semble donc résider à l'extérieur.

Le 21 avril 1841, Richard Blanchfield (probablement le père) acquiert les lots 202 et 203 (1148 et 1147au terrier seigneurial)  de James Conway. La terre est en bois debout à l'exception d'un petit désert (éclaircie). Le recensement de 1842 indique qu'il est temporairement absent. Celui de 1851 nous apprend qu'il est âgé de 60 ans et sa femme Mary Ivoy 48 ans. Aucune autre personne n'habite la ferme. La maison est qualifié de shanty. Il vend ou donne la terre à Martin Blanchfield le 22 septembre 1855 et ce dernier la cède à Michael Phelan, le 24 avril 1877. Au moment de la transaction  la terre de 3 par 35 est dite sans bâtisse.

Possible Callaghan - Phelan Montreal Connection

Shelia has sent us this information that might be related to St. Columban:-

I am just sending this along by chance there may be a connection to your group.

St. Patrick's, Montreal, Feb. 4, 1865 - B95
[highlight]Luke Callaghan, born on the 2nd. son of John Callaghan, shoemaker and of Bridget Phelan of this parish.[/highlight]GP: Elizabeth Buckley Callaghan, John Callaghan

and my reply

Hi Shelia;
 
Might be one of ours. Not sure we have a lot of Phelan's in St. Columban including four (4) Bridget Phelan, 3 of who could be this one mentioned. We also have a number of O'Callaghan in St. Columban, so certainly could be possible. I'll post it to our site, in case someone else can make the connection...
 
Thanks again

In the Ann or Margaret Blanchfield situation: my guess is that the priest made a mistake. I have seen quite a few of these in church records. Of course, there is a chance that Ann decided to "go" by a different name, but under the circulstances, I think it not likely.

Perhaps we can find another baptism or a census record to confirm the "Ann" name?

I have even seen instances in Ontario when the priest has named the wrong parents, confusing them with godparents!

Voici quelques informations concernant Daniel Phelan


Selon le curé Forget auteur d’une étude généalogique faites vers 1905.

Daniel Phelan, épouse Élizabeth Donton

Enfants :

Élizabeth  1830
Patrick 1832
James 1835
Margareth 1836
______________________
Note : J’ignore s’il est remarié avec Mary Rafter ???
______________________

Daniel Phelan est l’un des premiers censitaires de Saint-Colomban. Il acquiert le lot 1247 de la concession St-George le 27 novembre 1826. L’acte de concession indique qu’il est cultivateur originaire du comté de Kilkenny en Irlande et qu’il habite actuellement à Montréal.

Il acquiert en 1833 deux terres de la côte St-Patrick où il résidera possiblement jusqu’en 1842. Le recensement de 1842 indique que 8 personnes vivent sur cette ferme. Nous ignorons s’il quitte alors St-Colomban, mais le 12 février 1856 lorsqu’il vend son lot de la côte St-George, il habite à Cornwall, comté de Stormont.

Daniel Phelan est un personnage important de Saint-Colomban. En effet, il est secrétaire d’un comité en vue de la construction d’une chapelle (1830) et préside également en 1835 l’association réformiste locale. Ce comité est relié à la rébellion des Patriotes de 1837-1838 au Bas-Canada. Fait intéressant, son épée nous est parvenu et appartient actuellement à la famille de Gerard Keyes, aujourd’hui décédé.

Nous ignorons si Daniel est parent avec John Phelan, marié à Mary Phelan. Cette dernière est la sœur de Mgr Patrick Phelan. Il faudrait vérifier l’ensemble des enfants de Joseph Phelan et Catherine Brennan.

Possible Montreal Connections
« Reply #34 on: August 11, 2006, 09:40:21 AM »

Not sure about any of the following possible connections to St. Columban. These are a couple of notes posted by Shelia. Although I am not able to make any direct connections, and of course, they are all familiar Irish names, there were Caseys; O’Farrells; Fitzgerald and Gaynor families in St. Columban. So, again these are only possible connections just in case they match some information that you might have

I am a grandaughter of Pauline Catherine Stapleton. I know she married Richard McKibbin in Montreal on April 25. 1917. They had several children: Bruce, Ross, Jean, Norman and Patricia, I just wondered if there was any more information about her marriage or death or anything on Richard McKibbin.

Pauline Catherine Stapleton Information
« Reply #36 on: August 12, 2006, 06:11:10 PM »

Hi;

In my records, I have the following concerning [highlight][size=14]Pauline Catherine Stapleton[/size][/highlight]….

I have her birth as on July 14th 1896, and her baptism on July 16th 1896 in St. Patrick’s Church in Montreal (B265). Her parents were listed as Michael Stapleton, baptized in St. Columban on June 4th 1872 (B11) and Ann Julia O’Rourke, baptized in St. Columban on September 1 1860. Michael Stapleton & Ann Julia O’Rourke were married on January 4th 1895 in St. Patrick’s Church in Montreal (M4).

I have Michael Stapleton’s parents listed as John Stapleton & Bridget Wells and Ann parents listed as Samuel O’Rourke & Catherine Phelan.

John & Bridget were married in St. Columban on September 12 1865. I have Bridget’s baptism as noted on February 10th 1837 in St. Columban. I do not have any information on the birth of John Stapleton. However, I do have John’s parents noted as Michael Stapleton & Judith Marshall. And, I have Bridget’s parents noted as Charles John Wells &  Margaret Farrell. On John Wells, I have a note that he was born about 1805 likely in Ireland and that he died at 68 years old was buried in St. Columban on March 19 1873 (S3)

On her mother side, Ann Julia O’Rourke’s parents are noted as Samuel O’Rourke and Catherine Phelan married in St. Columban on April 21 1857. Samuel’s parents are noted as Samuel O’Rourke & Judith Grace. This Samuel O’Rourke is noted as having been born about 1794 (likely in Ireland) and he died at 80 years old on December 27th 1876. He was buried in St. Columban on January 2nd 1877 (S1). Judith Grace was born about 1791 and died at 65 years old and was buried in St. Columban on October 13 1856 (S3)

I have the following siblings listed for Pauline – Josephine Margaret Stapleton, baptized on December 5th 1897 at St. Patrick’s (B451) but who died at only 7 months old and was then buried in St. Columban on June 30 1898 (S4); John Samuel Stapleton baptized at St. Patrick’s on May 23 1895 (B152) and Samuel Gerald Stapleton, baptized in St. Patrick’s on April 15 1900 (B77)

Of course, all this information, dates etc. are subject to verification. And, perhaps other researchers have more or different information.

But, I hope that this info helps and makes sense….

Fergus
