Even though the Roe’s and Pooles that we are directly tied to didn’t migrate to Ontario until much later, these families move ahead of them and them and their descendants will appear next to them and are connected to the Roes and Pooles.    So I have attached this for reference from the following website:

Isaac Griffith and Sarah Astleford family

I was going through some records and I have a chance to revisit my document. I have
made a few revisions  – namely I found a few more names to add and put in my source.
You may wish to remove the old and replace it with this newer version.

Emigrants from Counties Carlow & Wexford to Canada. By 1817 there was a post war
recession and Irish crops were failing. Soldiers returning from the Napoleonic wars on
the European mainland were flooding the labour market. There had been a war in North
America between the Americans and the Canadians (1812-14). The English government
offered free land to settlers (preferrably with military experience) to defend Canada
from the Americans.

I am the G-Granddaughter of Adeline Saunders,  daughter of Robert Saunders and Margery
Griffith.  Adeline was married to John Willoughby in 1882 then sometime after that she
came to be with James Connell.  We have been unable to fine a marriage for James and Adeline
but in 1889 my grandfather Robert James Connell was born in Carleton Place.
I am trying to find any information for Margery Griffith’s family.  Is she related to your
Griffiths?
Thanks
… Maureen Gordon

Thanks to Rory Griffith for the following:
The Saunders and Willoughby families were from around Coolcullen in Co. Kilkenny. Is this the
same one:
Anne Shirley , b. 1780, Knocknabranna, Old Leighlin, Co. Carlow. [33] She married John George
Willoughby , 31 May 1803, in Old Leighlin, Co. Carlow, [34] b. 1780, Coon, Co. Carlow, Ireland,
[35] d. 26 Apr 1874, Beckwith Township, Lanark Co, Ontario, [36] buried: Franktown, Beckwith
Township. [37] Anne died 9 May 1871, Beckwith Township, Lanark Co, Ontario., [38] buried:
Franktown Cemetery, Beckwith Township. [39] John: The family emigrated to Canada around 1818
and settled in the Ottawa Valley. George and Ann are buried in Franktown Cemetery.
Children:
i John Willoughby , b. 1807, [40] d. 11 Jan 1870, Beckwith Township, Lanark Co. Ontario,
[41] buried: Franktown Cemetary, Beckwith Township. [42]
ii George Willoughby , b. circa 1800/10.
iii Thomas Willoughby , b. 1814.
An excerpt from Dorothea Greenley Letter of 1818  :
“Ann Ann Richardson (c1792-1872), Dorothea’s daughter (by her prior marriage) who married
John Willoughby (????-c1830) in Ireland in about 1815. John and Ann Willoughby arrived in
Canada via the ship “Atlantic” in 1817, the year following John and Dorothea Greenley, and
settled on land on Con-2/Lot-21 of Landowne Township in Leeds County. When John Willoughby
died in about 1830 Ann was remarried to William Biggar (????- 1862/63).”
I ran your Robert Saunders and here is what I came up with:
Robert Saunders b.1824 (Henry (Harry) John Saunders3, Sarah Edwards Beckwith Township Lanark
County, Ontario, and died Dec 23 1890 in Carleton Place, Lanark County, Ontario. He married
Marjorie Griffith Jun 19 1849. She was born 1828 in Ireland, and died Mar 21 1900 in
Smiths Falls, Lanark County, Ontario.
I also attached a Donald Saunders file. (not included here … Al)
