Synopsis: In 1823 and 1825 groups of impoverished people from the south of Ireland were brought to Upper Canada under the leadership of the Hon. Peter Robinson, MPP. They settled in the District of Bathurst in the Ottawa Valley and in the Newcastle District in the Peterborough area. This is the first book that has studied the two groups together. The implementation of the second stage of the migration in 1825 very much depended on the success or failure of the 1823 settlers, and there were many family ties between those who came in the two different groups. Carol Bennett has documented the events which led up to this emigration scheme, and she has looked at each family to see what became of them. The book includes stories of the settlers, events in which the families took part, and profiles of prominent descendants. One section of the book is set up as a hand-book for genealogists. Many helpful hints for those researching these families have been included.
