The Coollattin Canadian Connection

There's news of a project to help the descendants of emigrants from the Coollattin Estate in Co. Wicklow learn about their family history and return to the land of their forefathers. Thousands of the Estate's tenants were assisted by their landlord, Earl Fitzwilliam, in emigrating to Canada between the mid-1830s and 1850s.

Many settled in Eastern Ontario. See a post  including a list of settlers at www.bytown.net/wicklowemigrants.htm
