Re: [Genealogy Research Club] Help Figuring This Out
- Hello Laura,
I'll see what I can do. However, was Joseph Fitzroy
born in the town of Wexford or in County Wexford. The
town was the administrative headquarters of the county
(and still is). Secondly, have you searched the UK
census records for both 1861 and 1871? These records
are available on line, and during the 19th Century
Ireland was part of the British Empire. As for the
number of Fitzroys born around the same time but not
being able to find your particular one, this could be
the fact that Fitzroy is a very common Irish surname
(ir means 'son of the king' in Norman French). Also, I
am not sure what you mean when you write that you
gind a record of Joseph Fitzroy 'crossing'? Does this
mean that you have no record of his actual immigration
to Canada? I would be surprised if you would find any
records; as Canada and Ireland were both parts of the
British Empire, people crossing from Ireland to
eitherCanada or Australia would not have been
considered eimgrants/immigrants. All you can try to do
is to find out on what ship he might have traveled.
Sorry I can't be more helpful, but I hope I have
helped in any case.
