Subject: Martin McAuliffe: Peter Robinson emigrant in 1825

In researching my ancestry, I’ve been able to trace my roots back to a family of eight that emigrated from Cork in 1825 as part of an unusual assisted emigration scheme led by Peter Robinson. Robinson led two emigrations from County Cork to Upper Canada (now Ontario): one in 1823 took over 500 people, and the second, in 1825, took over 2,000. My ancestor’s name was Martin McAuliffe and his wife’s name was Catherine. They were both born about 1781 and they had six children as of 1825. Martin was a simple labourer, they were from Kilworth in County Cork, and they were recommended for the project by Lord Mount Cashell.

I have more about the family and some of their descendants, posted in WikiTree. Plus, I have included much of what I’ve learned in my research about the family and the times in which they lived in a short Amazon eBook called Greener Pastures:

If anyone has any ideas for me on how I might learn more about Martin or Catherine’s parents or other relatives, I would certainly be interested.
