Hoping someone may be able to help.
I spent a week last year in the County Records Office in Belfast trying
to find anything on my line of Henderson's from Co Down. On all their
grave markers here is written (natives of County Down Ireland), yet i
cannot seem to find any info on them.
They immigrated to Quebec, Canada, in 1825 or a strong possibility 1829
The family members that came is in question, but for certain there were,
John Henderson, born 1731, he died after their arrival and is buried with
a grave marker in the Gore Cemetery, Hinchinbrooke Twsp, Quebec
My great Grandfather, William, born about 1775, wife, Mary, Mullens?, Minellen?,
Muellen?, Montier?, Matier?,.
Their children were,
Henry, born-1798 in Co Down
Robert, born-abt 1805 in Co Down
Samuel, born-1807 in Co Down
William, born-abt 1809 in Co Down
Thomas, born Apr/01/1812 in Co Down
James, born-1820 in Co Down
Mary Ann, born-Feb/27/1823 in Co Down
There were also from Down at that time
Ann Henderson, 1786 and husband James Graham, 1786 with
Sonís Samuel,1814 and James,1825
John Henderson, 1785 and wife Sarah Hart, 1786 with
Letitia, about 1820, Samuel, Dec/01, 1823, John,1821
We believe Ann Henderson and John Henderson, were related
to our William as they all settled on the same road within a couple of miles.
Of each other
If you could possibly help in any way, if a cost is involved, please
let me know. I thought when in Belfast at the records office, I might find
some clues, but none. Somewhere in Co Down, there must be a record
of this family, being as they were all born there.
