red mail Rathdrum, Doyle's of
My grandfather told my father that my family originated in Rathdrum. From what he was told, there were 7 brothers and 7 sisters who left the country, and he thought that this was during the potato famine. My Doyle ancestors are Peter Doyle born circa 1844, and his wife Eliza (may possibly have also been known as Ellen), arrived in Quebec in Canada around 1870 with their son, also Peter Doyle, who was just a few months old. An Allan Line shipping form on the Canadian National Archives lists them as arriving in 1872, but Peter's wife is written as Ellen. Is this a mistake, or is it a different family? 1870 is also not at the time of the potato famine.However, the story handed down that the family left during the famine may be incorrect. The Canadian 1891 Census lists Peter and Elizabeth Doyle, along with the young Peter - now aged 19 (so his age correctly matches the one listed on the Allan Line document), and his other brothers and sisters.Does anyone know of my ancestors? I am living in London, my Grandfather having brought the Doyle name to England as a Candian soldier in the First World War. I hope to visit Rathdrum this year sometime. Does anyone know if a research visit to Rathdrum would be beneficial? Many thanks.
