Event: The Story of Hazeldean

The original settlement of Hazeldean, formerly part of Goulbourn Township, in 1818 was by a group of “Loyal Protestants” and their families (15) who arrived mid-November after an arduous 45-day journey from Quebec. They had originally departed from Cork on 11 June 1818. The Hazeldean settlers were part of a group numbering 183 under leader Richard Talbot, mostly immigrants from in or near Cloghjordan, in Modreeny parish, County Tipperary.

On Saturday 13 April at 1:30 pm the Goulbourn Township Historical Society will host a presentation by Roger Young, Society Director and retired Anglican priest who has a direct family connection to the community, on The Story of Hazeldean. The location is the Stittsville Branch of the Ottawa Public Library.

All welcome. Parking and refreshments are free.

Thanks to Patricia Barlosky for the tip.
