|Hello! Just starting our research into our JUDGE family and have found this tantalizing connection to the BOYLE family.
"Jane Boyle, of Tyrone, Ireland, was responsible for the introduction of the
Boyle family name to West Caledonia, Nova Scotia, Canada. Besides a daughter, Ellen, who was the
wife of Myles Corrigan, a son named Thomas settled in the area with his
wife, Isabelle Bradley, in 1840. Her brother Dennis also came to the area.
With them came a nephew of Jane Boyle, named Michael Judge, who married Catherine
Menchen. Mrs. Boyle herself came to live in West Caledonia well after she
was sevety years old, and was buried in the Catholic cemetary there in
1870. She was 106 years old at the time of her death. This lady's
descendantys are now known to exist all over North America. In the
Caledonia area, her lineage extends into the familes of Boyle, Canning,
Hawkes, Farrell, Corrigan, and perhaps others, now untraceable."
We are trying vainly to trace our JUDGE lineage to Ireland. This is the latest and most intriging thread. Basically, Michael Judge came to West Caledonia, Queens County, Nova Scotia, Canada around 1840 with his aunt Jane Boyle. We have both Michael Judge and Catherine Menchen being born in Ireland in 1826. They were married in Nova Scotia, probably at St. Jerome's Catholic Church, West Caledonia, Nova Scotia.
Catherine Menchen's mother was born in 1797 in Carlow, Ireland as well as Catherine's brother, Patrick Menchen in 1816. They both died her in West Caledonia, Nova Scotia.
Other immigrants at this time were Jane Boyle's brother Dennis Boyle, her son Thomas Boyle and daughter Ellen Boyle.
Any chance someone could point us in the right direction. We feel we're soooooooo close!
