1823 Peter Robinson Settlers

1823 Peter Robinson Settlers

There was a John Deleury and his wife Bridget in this first group of Peter Robinson settlers. Also a William Riordan that I believe was Bridgets brother. I understand from the records that John and Bridget settled in Packenham, but I can find no records of them there after that. I believe they had a few children at least 2 girls named Bridget and Sarah but I cannot seem to find any church records, deaths or other information on this family. There were stories that Bridget returned to Ireland but no supporting data on this. Would anyone have any idea where there might be some information or source I might have overlooked? Thanks.

Several on-line family trees suggest John died in 1847. BUT… there is a J. Deloory, born 1802, Ireland, living in Pakenham, Lanark County, in 1851. There are several other Deloorys living with him, all identified only by initial and sex. All were born in Canada.

Various other spellings from on-line family trees include Deloughry and Deloury.

There are a couple of postings that may offer you clues…
