I'm looking for information re: Possibly from Ireland.

Neil Patterson b c1810, sp Nancy ?? b ?, both born in Scotland.
He applied for land in Canada, in Dec. 1833 and received it in Jan. 1834.
He farmed the land in Victoria County, Ontario, Canada for many years.
I think the land was in his name until 1901, a month after his death.
A Donald Patterson farmed the land next to him. Relationship to Neil unknown...possibly his brother? cousin?

Neil & Nancy had these children:
Lauchlin b1841, John b1843, Mary b1848, Christina b1850, Angus(Andrew?) b1852, & Donald b1854.
(Possibly a Flora b1846 also.)

My questions are:
Where in Scotland did Neil come from & who were his parents? When did he come to Canada?
What was Nancy's maiden name, who were her parents & where did she come from?
Were they married in Scotland or Canada?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time.
