Great information, but no reference to Robert Bambrick. The Drouin collection shows the baptisms of three children of Robert and his wife, Ellen Walsh. Daughter Ellen marries my g-g-grandfather in the Berkshires in Massachusetts and ends up in NYC. In all census reports she indicates that she was born in Canada (that's how I located the records), and that her parents were both born in Ireland. Ellen Bambrick was born in 1843, if I remember accurately, so her parents were in Canada before that. Her sister marries in Canada, and I have connected to a descendant through ancestry.com, but have not been as lucky in tracing her brother James. There are several Bambricks in NYC records, but I cannot connect them.
