I am looking for info on my GG grandfather who I believe is a Palatine. I can’t find any info on his parents to confirm this. Charles Piper (Pyper) B 1811 Negagh, Tipperary. D Nov 16, 1883 Stonleigh, ON Canada. He came to Canada in 1845. M 1837 to Margaret Armstrong D 1843, children James 1939-1840, William 1841-1919 (came to Canada with his father and step mother)M 1844 Elizabeth Ardel (Ardell) B 1823 Borrisoleigh, Tipparary. children John 1847-1878, James 1849-1899, Charles 1850- , Rebecca 1853-1876, George ( my g grandfather) 1855-1914, Richard 1857-1940 , Joseph 1859-1928, Francis 1862-1864, Francis #2 1866-1878.
I have been told Charles fathers name was also Charles B 1780, but I can’t confirm. The 1851 Canadian census lists the last name as Pyper, and says they are Church of England. One story we were told was he was protestant and she was catholic and that is why they came to Canada. I can’t find any info on Elizabeth’s family other than her brother Thomas B 1821 also came to Canada with he and Charles.Can anyone help me find the missing link to parents or as to if they were Palatines or not.
