how to locate year of immigration from Ireland to Canada about 1838

Can someone from Renfrew Ontario tell me how to locate an immigration year for Patrick Doolan wife Mary Ryan who were from Tipperary Ireland.

I am guessing the year of immigration. Patrick Doolan and Mary Ryan had two children that were born in Tipperary Irland
Thomas Doolan b. 1833 Tipperary
Anne b. 1835 Tipperary

Patrick B. 1839 Fitzroy
Denis b. 1841 Fitzory
Catherine b. 1846 Fitzory
Francis b. 1850 Fitzory
I believe there was a John b. 1850

Because two of the children were born in Tiperary Ireland and their third chld being born 1839 in Fitzory I am guessing that Patrick and Mary with their two oldest children came to Canada about 1838.

Thank you
D

Hi,

1901 Canada Census Thomas DOOLAN claims he immigrated in 1836 from Ireland. If you do not have access to this census let me know and I can get it for you.

Hope this helps,
Jane

Jane Thank you very much for your time, this family has been so confusing, the last names have been spelled different which I understand then I find different birth years with the parents first name to be correct but then the last name is missed spelled.

Do know of where I can search for obits on these family members that might lead to more family information and for the immigration year of 1836.

I do not reside in Canada so I am searching the computer.

Thank you so much

Hi,

The census records are only as good as the person who answered the door that day. You will find a lot of incorrect birth dates, also, surnames and given names misspelled.

I will hunt around and see if I can find an obit for you. I didn't find one on ancestry.ca. You may have to email the library or genealogy society in that area.

Will get back to you.
Jane
