Surnames: Churchill, Bible
Does anyone have a connection to Joseph Churchill, b. 05 Jun 1779 in Tipperary (city)? He married Frances Bible, and they had at least six children: William, John, Joseph, Fanny, Mary and James. He emigrated to Canada in about 1845, but eventually settled in Wisconsin, USA.

Thank you!

Roxanne:
Have you had any luck with information on Churchill and Bible families. Joseph Churchill apparently emigrated from Parish of Fenar, Co. Tipperary (nearest town, Urlingford, Kilkenny) to Canada in 1829, settled in Churchill, Upper Canada, then moved to Goderich Township, Huron County. Interesting book on this movement is Bruce S. Elliott, Irish Migrants in the Canadas: a New Approach (1988). I would appreciate views of others on this contribution to collective family history. I have little other info on Churchill or Bible families of Tipperary prior to the migration.

Daniel,

Do you know for a fact that this is "our" Joseph Churchill? I haven't made any progress, but I just heard about the book that you referenced below. I will see if I can find it through the library or LDS.

I think this is our man, but for now, and in the absence of confirming information, I am making an assumption. The spouse is the right one, apparently. I think the key is trying to find out via this Bruce Elliott book and other sources where they came from in Tipperary. Cheers. Dan

Hi Daniel, I was wondering if you had an Elizabeth Churchill. She was born 1835. She was married to Charles Cole in 1853. They are my ggggrandparents and I am in search of my ancestors beyond her. Let me know if you have a link to my tree.

Thanx Brandy.

REgrettably, only Elizabeth Churchill I have is one born much later who happened to be my grandmother. Was your Churchill born in Huron County, Ontario, Canada? That's my line.

I looked up in my tree to see what Churchills I had there. I found 4 in my try. Elizabeth Churchill, William Churchill(b 1807), married Ann Cole; John CHurchill(b. 1811) and Joseph Churchill.All I know is that William was born in Tipperary Ireland, and then came to Huron County. I know they are somehow related to Elizabeth Churchill but not too sure how. Possibly a cousin??? She was born in London, England and she later settled in Goderich, Huron County. SHe married my ggggGrandfather Charles Cole. Little confused on this line. The 3 guys were brothers. Let me know if you have anything that matches.

Interesting. I looked again and this is what I've got, although based only on internet sources. My Joseph (b. 1779in Tipperary) was probably the father of John (b. 1811) both of whom settled in Huron County. John had at least four siblings, William (b. 1815), Joseph(b. 1821), Frances (b. 1821) and Mary (b. 1830). I have another Elizabeth as a daughter of John but nothing re dates of birth, death, etc., and her birth would have been after about 1845. Common link here is Tipperary, Ireland, connection. I'll keep looking.

Wondering if there could be a link between your Joseph, b. 1779 and my GGG grandfather, Samuel Churchill, born Tipperary 1785 or 6. In his military attestion in Feb 1812, he said he was born in Thurles (didn't say whether town or parish --but either way, it's not too far from Fenar), a collarmaker by trade and was 26 years old. He joined 3rd Company, 3rd Battalion of Royal Sappers and Miners and came to Canada in June 1813. Wife was Jane (believed to be Bowles, also Tipperary). They had at least 6 children: William (b. Kingston, Upper Canada 1816), my GG grandfather John (b. Jan 1819 in Kingston); Elizabeth, Joseph, Thomas and Jane.

Have also come across info on another Churchill family who hailed from Littleton/Two Mile Borris area -- again, close to Thurles. William, b. 1801 in Townland of Littleton, m. Letitia Ward abt 1830. The family migrated to Canada abt 1833-4 and settled in Covey Hill, Huntington (near Montreal), Lower Canada. Children were Thomas (b. Ireland), Martha, Elizabeth, William, Letitia, James and Samuel (the latter four born in Quebec).

Many of the given names are common between these three branches of Tipperary Churchills. Has anyone made any strides in sorting out early Churchills? If so, would love to hear -- am also willing to share what I have about my branch.

Finding links among the various Tipperary Churchill families is a good idea, but that requires evidence. The only thing that's on this 9-year-old thread is speculation, wild-eyed-guesses, and conflating different people who have the same name.

There are at least 4 Churchill families who emigrated from County Tipperary in the early to mid-nineteenth century:

John Churchill, b. 1773, who emigrated to Huntingdon County, Quebec c. 1835. (William Churchill, b. 1801, is a son of his.)

Joseph Churchill, b. 1778, who emigrated to Peterborough County, Ontario c. 1844, then migrated to Rock County, Wisconsin, where he died in 1862.

John Churchill, b. c. 1811, who migrated to Kent, England c. 1868-70.

William, John, & Joseph Churchill, b. 1807-1815, who settled in Goderich Twp, Huron County, Ontario c. 1829-43. This Joseph Churchill died in Huron County. He is not the same Joseph Churchill who died in Wisconsin.

Then there's "Samuel Churchill -- early settler to Lanark County, Bathurst District, Canada -- listed in Perth Military Settlement lists as being located Sept. 18, 1819 on Lot NE10, Conc 8, Burgess Twp. Settlement info shows him as being from Ireland...I believe he may the father of my GG Grandfather John Churchill of Admaston and the Village of Renfrew, Renfrew County." Do we know if he was even from County Tipperary? Was any evidence ever found of his hypothesized relationship to John Churchill of Admaston?
